Stop talking constantly about the situation you are going through. Decide to get through it! Do not accept your present, temporary situation as your permanent condition. Make up your mind to get on with your life and to fulfill your divine purpose despite your current circumstances.
God wants each of us to come through whatever situations we face. We are not to be moved by what we see but by what we do not see. This is what the Apostle Paul meant when he wrote that we walk by faith, not by sight (2 Corinthians 5:7). Today is the day to begin to walk by faith-right out of your present circumstances.
If you have been saying, “I’m going through this situation,” for years, you need to change your story. Begin to declare, “I’ve had enough! Now is the time I’m going to get through the mess!”
The Bible contains many promises that can deliver you today. If you will believe and appropriate these promises, you will begin to see your circumstances line up with the Word and will of God – eventually, if not immediately.
The devil tells us that we will never be victorious, that we will never get through what we are through. The enemy wants us to that there’s nothing more permanent than our temporary situation. In 1 Corinthians 10:13 (NIV) we are told the truth:
No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it.
You should take hold of this verse and use it as scriptural grounds to stand on. God is faithful. He will provide a way for you. You take your stand of faith and boldly proclaim, “I’m going to get through what I’ve been going through!” Natural circumstances may still remain unchanged, but between your efforts and God’s, you are already through that situation!
Some people stay in the same hopeless situation their whole lives, never making a firm decision to seek God and His power in order to get through the circumstances they face. The commandment that tells us to be long suffering does not require us to stay in a miserable situation one second longer than is absolutely necessary. Here is how we poise ourselves to break through: “And be not conformed to this world, but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect will of God” (Romans 12:2). Be transformed by renewing your mind with the Word of God. Then you will know what is the good and perfect will of the Lord, and you will able to get through – once and for all – what you have been going through for so long.
