God is the one who chooses how and whom He will work through if we are willing to let Him. If you’ll let Him, God will refine and make you into what you really are capable of becoming.

Our most tough places in life are the very places we can grow the most if we won’t rebel against God, but trust Him regardless of what our emotions are saying or our thinking tries to convince us. God will provide for you if you will let Him.
God will fight for His people who will look to Him as their source no matter where they are at in life, but you must stand firm for God no matter what happens. Many times, this separates those who actually follow Jesus from those who say they follow Jesus.
In Joshua 1, God reminds His people “only be strong and courageous” in verse 7 and several other passages: “do not be afraid” nor dismayed for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.
Remember this wherever you go or whatever you face in this life: If you will not turn from the right or the left, if you will meditate and trust in God’s word and His way, He will be with you however it ends up.
The reason people fall is not because of a mistake they made, but because they keep making the same mistakes. It doesn’t matter what’s going on in your life. When Jesus comes on the scene, something is going to have to change. Either you are going to have to face your situation and live with it or let Jesus deal with it.
Do you have a faith in God that can sustain you? It is one thing to talk about it. It is something else to walk it out. God will walk it out with you every time; that is, if you do really have the relationship that it takes.
The moment you start depending almost exclusively on mankind’s programs to be your supplier of your needs, you’ll weaken your faith in God as being your main source. The advice of others may bring help, but only God’s Word can bring healing in those tough places in life.
