The Spirit of Resilience: Pushing Through Uncertainty with Faith in God
“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose” (Romans 8:28).
As we stand on the cusp of a new year, we are reminded that the Spirit of Resilience is integral to our survival. Recent years have been marred by global health crises, a looming world war, financial woes, and undeniable behavioral change in many people. The entire world has been impacted. The future remains uncertain, its course unknown to us, but not to our God. As we sail into the uncharted waters of the future, we must put on God’s armor, harnessing the power of our spiritual center, founded in Christ Jesus. He gives us the strength to weather the storm and forge ahead. Our faith is rooted not in our capacity to understand every detail of His plan, but in our trust in His divine authority.
Luke 21 paints a vivid picture of the end times—imposters claiming to be Jesus, nations pitted against each other, widespread earthquakes, famines, diseases, frightening phenomena, and miraculous sights. We are witnessing the laying of foundations, the fruition of prophecies. However, amidst this chaos, we are reminded through scripture to focus our gaze heavenward. As it is written in Colossians 3:2, “Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.”
Our comfort and strength lie in yoking ourselves with God, as depicted in Matthew 11:29, “Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.”
Your Call to Action
Let’s stand firm against adversities, and embrace the challenges that come our way. Remember, Romans 8:31 asks us, “If God is for us, who can be against us?” Let’s step into the unknown with confidence, knowing we are guided by the Almighty. Take this moment to reaffirm your trust in Him, rekindle your spirit of resilience, and commit yourself to living according to His purpose. Your journey starts now. Embrace the resilience within you and let your faith in Him illuminate the path ahead.
“For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future’” (Jeremiah 29:11).
“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand” (Isaiah 41:10).
“God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble” (Psalm 46:1).
A Comforting Closure
Let us remain steadfast in our faith, ever resilient in our battles, knowing that in Him, we find our refuge and comfort.
