How You’re Defined

From going forward.

Your circumstances don’t define who you are, God does..

When Paul, the apostle, went to his Christian brothers and sisters, to start a church, he did not receive a warm welcome. He tells of “making every effort,” trying “again and again,” for them see God’s  “glory and joy.” (1 Thessalonians 2:17-20)

Clearly he wanted to minister to his friends in Christ. Satan used circumstances to block him From going forward. Obviously Paul was successful in the end because he persevered.

Satan also tries to block us with difficulties. Serving others is not always comfortable, but Jesus calls us to do it in spite of the challenges.

Begin where You are

“Begin here and now where you are, use what you have, more often than not you’ll discover you can and will!” unkown

Arthur Ashe put it best when he shared these thoughts about taking on challenges. Whether confronting an opponent on the tennis court or trying to bring about radical change in your life, I suspect that the same principles apply.

God says this in James 1 :17

“Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.”
