Are You Feeling Outnumbered by Problems?

Drenda Keesee

“If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.” – James 1:5

Sometimes we get distracted, and our heart begins to callous toward hearing God’s voice. We get off the mark.

Life’s pressures have a way of choking out God’s Word.

We have to reestablish our relationship with God and listen for His direction. And when you cry out to God, you’re going to find some changes needed in your life.

There are always more journeys and challenges in life. We will never get to the place where we don’t need to continually follow God in our lives. The moment we think we can do it alone is the time our pride will cause us to fall into a delusion that lands us back in trouble.

You may be in a place where it seems hopeless, but you and God can take on anything.

Ask God to reestablish your founda­tion and to repurpose your family in Him. Listen for His instruc­tion and walk it out in the strength He has given you.

Joan of Arc said it beautifully, “Act, and God will act.”

When you take a step of obedience, God’s grace (His power) will meet you. You won’t do it alone.

God’s power is the only way you can reclaim your identity in Christ, impact your family, and place them on the right foundation. God’s power is the key to your destiny. God wants to fill your faith with His ability. You’re not alone.

Help is just a prayer away:

Father God, I come to You and ask for Your help to reestablish my family’s foundation on Your Word. I humble myself before You and recognize I can­not succeed in my family or business without your direction. I ask for Your help, and I commit my life to You. I ask You to repurpose my life and help me to lead my family by Your Spirit.

You don’t have to fight the battle by yourself.

Gideon’s army was small in number, but with a divine plan, they won the bat­tle without even going into war. The army of 135,000 soldiers saw Gideon’s 300 men and thought they were surrounded. They began to kill one another, without Gideon’s army suffering any casualties.

That’s how God wants to work in your life.

You may be outnumbered by your problems and facing hopeless circum­stances, but God has a divine plan to bring you into restora­tion—and you don’t have to suffer any casualties. Your life will make a statement.
