2020 – TUESDAY 02 JUNE
THREE RESPONSES TO DIFFICULT TIMES
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. But He said to them, Why are you so fearful? How is it that you have no faith?
There are three ways that people respond to difficult times.
VICTIM – CIRCUMSTANCES
When you focus on the circumstance as being a bad thing – you cancel your faith in God to do a good thing.
FOCUS IS ON YOU
VILLAIN – CONSPIRACIES
When you spend your time looking for conspiracies behind every storm – you cancel your ability to see God at work in the circumstance.
FOCUS IS ON THE ENEMY
VICTOR – CONVICTIONS
When you stand upon the promises of God and declare them – you cancel the enemy’s attempts to make you fear.
FOCUS IS ON GOD
HOW YOU RESPOND – DETERMINES THREE THINGS
HOW YOU COME THROUGH
The way you journey through a storm is the direct result of your response to the storm.
THE HELP YOU GET
The way you journey through a storm determines who you will call for help.
Victims call other victims.
Villains curse the darkness.
Victors call upon the Lord.
THE FRUIT YOU CARRY AFTER
The way you journey through a storm determines the fruit you live with after the season – and reveals which of the three responses you showed in the storm.
PEACE BE STILL
