(Click HERE for part 1 in this series)
Everyone who has claimed victory in life has learned the value of being persistent. Anything of value in life will cost you something. You cannot grow your faith on a second hand experience. There are some things you have to fight through, battle against, and endure before you realize victory in Christ.
Do not be afraid to ask God to change your circumstances, when life is difficult. He may just do it. However, do not get discouraged if it does not happen according to your own expectations.
There will be several moments in life when you will have no idea what God is trying to accomplish through you. Your job is not to understand everything about God, nor is it to reason with Him according to your own logic (Proverbs 3:5-6). Your job is to trust Him with all of your heart, mind, and strength (Mark 12:30).
Trust God with every decision you make and allow Him to be responsible for working out the details. God gives you enough grace to make it through your daily struggles and concerns. Today has enough difficulty of its own. Do not fret about the future or things you cannot control (Mathew 6:34). Worry is interest paid on trouble that has not even happened yet.
