Trusting God in the Midst of a Battle is a Challenge
The things that challenge our trust in God also, challenge our confidence within ourselves.
These are the challenges that comes to weaken our hope and test our faith.
When facing challenges that are so furious and you feel the intense of the force from their aggression against you, the battlefield becomes yours, and your enemies. You seek for Hope and it appears to be too far to reach. You call for Faith, and it does not answer. Instead, you see a stormy sky filled with a horrible darkness, and hears the loud sounds of thunder that shakes the ground upon which you stand. You look for Strength, and you see the fiery veins of lightning hitting the ground, and the destruction it causes come near you from each hit that shakes every nerve in your entire being. You desire Peace but instead, the challenges increase, and you hear a voice from within you cry out to God for help; the sky clears, and the sun appears.
There comes a time when we have to place the battle in God’s hands, and wait to see his glorious power prevail on our behalf.
My personal thoughts
Regardless of the challenges, the sun will always shine again, Hope will return, and Faith will conquer. We become stronger and wiser with each battle from the challenges that are placed upon us. Within ourselves a special kind of trust and peace dwells in our heart and soul, that gives us confidence.
