When life gets challenging, do you find yourself asking, “What am I going to do?” Even though we may face difficult times, that doesn’t mean we have to give up or surrender to our circumstances. We don't have to live a "settled-for" life.
Regardless of your circumstances, you still have the privilege and the power to become the person your heavenly Father wants you to be. It's a matter of seeing things from God's perspective rather than the world's—focusing not on the circumstances, but the Person who lives within you.
In this message, Dr. Stanley explains how Christians can see themselves as “more than conquerors.” Also, he teaches that, because of our relationship with Christ, we will never be alone. Christ defeated our adversaries through His death on the cross, and He is always with us. Nothing can overwhelm us without our permission.
So, when difficulties arise, you shouldn’t ask “What am I going to do?” but should instead say, “God, what are You going to do? Holy Spirit, what are You going to do?” and “Jesus, what are You going to do?” We can persevere when we’re ready to watch the Lord work in our lives.
