Step one : Put your situation in God’s hands
We agree God is the Almighty. So why call on him as a last resort ? When you find yourself in a difficult situation, it is important to ask God for guidance and wisdom, because he knows it all and has a plan for each and everyone.
1). Matthew 7:7… “Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you.
2) Matthew 21:22…”You can pray for anything, and if you have faith, you will receive it.”
Step Two : Tell the truth
In most situations, we seem to think we can easily get out of it with a lie… ever heard the saying “the truth will set you free” ?. Free in what way you may ask, you can look at it in the means of the flesh, yes you may be set free from the consequences set upon you by man. But what about freedom in the spirit? the TRUTH will set you FREE, the truth will nourish your spirit, the truth will grant you blessings from God, and most above all, the truth shall set you free from SIN.
1). John 1:17 “For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ”.
2). John 8:31-32 “So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed in him, “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
Step Three : Every situation is a Lesson… Learn from it.
Absolutely every situation is a lesson. no matter how large or insignificant a lesson it might be… now you know not to cheat in exams, now you know to consider every side of the story, now you know to respect your elders.. these are all lessons that will enrich your life and allow you to grow stronger in your beliefs.
Remember, we are all humans, we all make mistakes, however we need to learn from them in order to avoid repeating them. Also sometimes we struggle between what is clearly right, and what we would rather do, Trust yourself to make a just decision. Aim : When you feel yourself about to make a wrong decision, pick up your bible and read…anything.
Food for Thoughts.
Romans 14 : 22-23 . Blessed are those who don’t feel guilty for doing something they have decided is right.23 But if you have doubts about whether or not you should eat something, you are sinning if you go ahead and do it. For you are not following your convictions. If you do anything you believe is not right, you are sinning
