In life we can feel as if we are stuck between a rock and a hard place. Sometimes the pressure we feel is simply the process of metamorphosis. It’s in those hard seasons that we actually transform from the inside out into who we are meant to be.
We often want to change our circumstances but the truth is if we allow it, they can change us for the better. The more we allow God to change us on the inside, the less we will care so much about the outside.
God created the world perfect and that is why we long for perfection. However, the world became upside down and lost. Thankfully God so loved the world that He sent Jesus to earth on a rescue mission, so that all who believe in Him will not perish but have everlasting life.
As we receive Jesus into our hearts, we sense His radical love, and receive His abundant life and right standing with our Father God. The more we meditate on this relentless, overwhelming and unfailing love, and less on the imperfections of this world, the more we will find that we effortlessly become who we are designed to be and step into all that we are meant for.
James 1:2-4 - Consider it a sheer gift, friends, when tests and challenges come at you from all sides. You know that under pressure, your faith-life is forced into the open and shows its true colors. So don’t try to get out of anything prematurely. Let it do its work so you become mature and well-developed, not deficient in any way.
