We all hit points a storm (Confusion in Life) in our Christian life—times when we don’t seem to be growing like we wish or when we are struggling to gain energy in spiritual growth and storm (challenges) are surrounding you. Are you there? Do you want to get out from that level up to another victorious level?
1. REJOICE EVERMORE. (Meshach, Abednego … in fire)
It trains our thinking toward noticing the blessings and thanking God for His goodness. Attitude (Character/manner) is a choice!
1 Thessalonians 5:16 Rejoice always, 17 pray without ceasing, 18 in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
19 Do not quench the Spirit. 20 Do not despise prophecies. 21 Test all things; hold fast what is good. 22 Abstain from every form of evil.
At any given time, all of us could voice legitimate irritations or share ongoing trials. But in those same moments, we could also voice thanks. Like rejoicing, thanksgiving is a choice. All of us have so much to be thankful for. The practice of offering God thanks helps us to be filled with MANNER.
3.DON’T QUENCH THE SPIRIT.
The Holy Spirit prompts us to serve and warns us against sin. He will lead us in paths of truth and guide our thinking and our decisions if we will listen. Be sensitive to His will and obedient to His voice today.
4. ABSTAIN FROM ALL EVIL.
1 Thessalonians 5:22 ‘’
“2.VICTORY RIGHT FROM THE STORM”
5. PRAY CONSTANTLY.
Prayer should be more than an activity; make it a habit.
6. RECOGNIZE THE PRESENCE OF JESUS
Do you know that Jesus is a gentleman every time we don’t recognize His present he remains asleep.
Mark 4:37 37 And a great windstorm arose, and the waves beat into the boat, so that it was already filling. 38 But He was in the stern, asleep on a pillow. And they awoke Him and said to Him, “Teacher, do You not care that we are perishing?”
39 Then He arose and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, “Peace, be still!”And the wind ceased and there was a great calm. 40 But He said to them, “Why are you so fearful? How is it that you have no faith?
7. DON’T LOOSE FOCUS;
Matthew 14:29 So He said, “Come.” And when Peter had come down out of the boat, he walked on the water to go to Jesus. 30 But when he saw that the wind was boisterous,[b] he was afraid; and beginning to sink he cried out, saying, “Lord, save me!”
31 And immediately Jesus stretched out His hand and caught him, and said to him, “O you of little faith, why did you doubt?”
When these actions are set in motion, they drive us toward the victory God wants us to experience on a daily basis.
