ABOVE THE WORLD’S TROUBLE!
(You Can Turn Every Adversity To Your Advantage);
TO THE BIBLE
Job 22:29 KJV
“When men are cast down, then thou shalt say, There is lifting up; and he shall save the humble person.”
Several years ago, in austere times, I exhorted some of my friends not to be perturbed by the negative news and troubles in the world today. I said to some of them, “When prices go up, don’t cry; don’t feel bad.” I’d say, “It’s for your good!” Of course, some of them didn’t understand what I was talking about.
They wondered how the problems of their nation, and in the world at large, could be to their advantage. But here’s an important principle you need to learn that’ll help you: Let your mind soar beyond the seemingly prevailing negative circumstances or situations around you. Rather, contemplate and think how big God is.
Think about the whole world as yours, for it’s indeed yours: “…For all things are yours…” (1 Corinthians 3:21). Learn the value of meditation on the Word of God. The Word has the ability to create or produce in you what it says, and to create and produce opportunities and guidance for you.
The Word enlarges your vision. Refuse to see lack and want. Look beyond the horizon and let the Word propel you to prosperity. There’s so much treasure around you; and like Isaac, amidst the seeming hardship, you can prosper, wax great, make progress and grow, until you become very great.
If you build your faith strong in God’s Word, you’ll neither cry nor be cast down in austere times. Isaac prospered in the midst of harsh economic conditions. In a time of famine, the Bible says he prospered, waxed great, made progress, and grew until he became very great (Genesis 26). Your prosperity should be born of the Word in spite of circumstances.
1 John 5:4; Romans 8:28; 1 Corinthians 3:21-23
I’m creating opportunities for others to benefit from my prosperity and that way, I’m contributing to the development of my society. I’ve already overcome the world and its systems, so I am reigning in life and enjoying the good of the land! I’m waxing great and making progress, in the Name of Jesus. Amen.
