You are going to have a challenge to overcome this year. A battle to fight this month. A struggle this week. Maybe even an argument today. And when these moments arise its all to common to get caught up in the busyness of life and try to succeed on our own. We are called to be faithful in both the big things, and the small things. And that applies to how we handle conflicts too.
When trouble comes your way do you heap the whole thing on your shoulders, or do you stop and ask God for help? Taking even a moment to acknowledge our need for Him can significantly shift the odds in our favor. God loves his children and wants to see them prosper. Don’t keep your daily drama from God, instead share what’s on your heart through prayer and worship. In the end you’ll realize that it wasn’t as dramatic as you initially thought. You’ll gain some perspective, and you’ll gain new strength from the Spirit!
Behold, all who are incensed against you
shall be put to shame and confounded;
those who strive against you
shall be as nothing and shall perish.
You shall seek those who contend with you,
but you shall not find them;
those who war against you
shall be as nothing at all.
For I, the LORD your God,
hold your right hand;
it is I who say to you, “Fear not,
I am the one who helps you.”
