Feeling overwhelmed

There are moments in our lives where it feels as if everything is coming at us all at once.

What can be even more frustrating is the fact that the solutions to our many problems are not equally as fast. Sad to say when these feelings of being overwhelmed overtake us the confusion and frustration that it brings, unfortunately, disables us in every area of our lives.

I have discovered that being overwhelmed, for the most part, is as a result of seeing future events from a negative view in advance of its happening and actually confessing the negative that we see. Just think about it for a moment, you are overwhelmed right now probably due to school fees not being paid as yet, high electricity bill, vehicle on the verge of breaking down, not to mention unexpected bills being presented to you and the list, of course, goes on.

Now, here is what we usually do, we place all of these problems together and say to ourselves "My God, every time you put one step forward, you have to take two back", "I only work to pay bills", "When will I ever enjoy life", "These people make me sick"... sounds familiar?

 The point I am attempting to make here my friend is that you are the one that has invited and fuel that spirit of being overwhelmed by the words you consistently speak. That's right! You are the one giving existence to this dislike feeling. Bottom line, YOUR WORDS ARE FORMING AND CREATING YOUR WORLD!

""For by your words you will be justified, and by your words, you will be condemned." Matthew  12:37.

"Death and life are in the power of the tongue; And they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof" Proverbs 18:21.

In the above scriptures, which are really spiritual laws, it's literally placing the creation of your world in your mouth. So every day is the manifestation of the consistent words you have spoken in the past. The truth is no one is doing this to you instead you're doing it to yourself.

Make a conscious effort in changing the way you think, and this will, in turn, change the way you speak. Begin by saying "I don't know how, but all my bills will be paid by the grace of God", "I will have no balance on my kids school fees", "The day is quickly approaching where I see myself having more than enough in the lacking areas of my life", "Things will get better", "My better days are ahead of me".

God knows the best way

Obstacles, setback, delays and disappointments in life when viewed from a positive perspective, is
God's way of saying, whatever it is you're attempting to achieve can be done another way!

As creatures created by God to progress and advance in life, the enemy has mastered the art of delay and disappointment to hamper our God given ability to naturally advance.

I would like to say to someone today that your disappointment and frustration is due in part to your limited way of thinking. Yes! You have convinced yourself that your way of trying to attain success or whatever it is you desire to achieve, is the only way it can be done, when God has been whispering to you, "Try another way". As a reminder, insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and foolishly expecting a different result.

The word of the Lord to you my friend is, "Get up brush yourself off and try again, only this time try it ANOTHER WAY OR BETTER YET, TRY IT GOD'S WAY!
