Lesson #16: Challenges are OPPORTUNITIES in disguise

Yesterday I was talking about how, if you have a lot on your plate and you’re sure none of it can be taken off, and you live in faith in and dependence on our awesome God, He will equip you to deal with it. The amazing thing is that you grow as you cope. In fact pretty soon you can achieve it all with applomb through Christ, who will strengthen you.

He gives us challenges we can never overcome without Him, forcing us to lean on Him to. He works with us to overcome the challenge, giving us everything we need along the way. As a result, we acquire new skills, learn new truths, and grow in trust and fellowship with God. The more we depend on Him, the more we can accomplish.

It’s absolutely amazing to live in this state of constant state of growth, and it makes me excited (and nervous!) about the next challenge to come my way, knowing that it will be another unparalleled, God-given opportunity to grow in Him.

James1:2 “My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; 3 Knowingthis, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. 4 But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.”
