Unbelief Busters

Unbelief looks at God through the circumstances, just as we often see the sun diminished by the clouds or smoke. But faith puts God in front so you can see the circumstances through Him. (From Streams in the Desert)

WOW. How true this is. I find myself doing this all the time. It's an unconscious tendency so it is a hard one to break. Have you ever found yourself thinking the problem you are facing is bigger than God? Then you do it too!

Let's try and change this together. Next time we are faced with a struggle let's follow these steps:
  1. Rejoice: I know that sounds weird. But the bible tells us to find joy in our struggles.
  2. Look: See this as an opportunity for God to be glorified.
  3. Worship: Praise God for who He is. Remind Him that you serve Him because He is worthy not because of what He does for you.
  4. Release: Trust God with the outcome.
  5. Stand: Let your faith be tested and grown by standing firm in what you believe.
