“Overcoming Life’s Challenges”

Passage: Psalm 86:1-7
Service Type:

The psalmist wrote (Ps 18:29) "For by Thee I have run through a troop; and by my God have I leaped over a wall." It is a good strategy to get yourself in time with your difficulties. Slow down, look them over without tension, don't be frightened by them. Reduce the tempo of life. Be in harmony with God and so ride out your challenges. Don't strain so hard. Relax, and adjust yourself to the timing of God. His timing is the timing of the Universe out of which our difficulties come. Whenever a challenge comes your way, you don't think about it; instead, think about God and the ability He gives you. Look down on your difficulties from a high spiritual altitude. It will then look small, just as it is small compared to your mighty God.
