The world teaches us our sense of security is base on others or accomplishments, but relying on this false sense of security lead many to destruction when face with difficult times. When our sense of security and significance is centered on God and who we are in Christ when face with difficult times we know challenges are not sent to destroy us, they’re sent to promote, increase and strengthen us. The purpose of “Keep Tha Faith” is to encourage you to “walk by faith, not by sight” 2 Corinthians 5:7
Thankful in the Midst of Suffering: We all know life get the best of us, sometimes you feel life is not fair. We all know God is in control and we must trust in him and do not grumble but how can we be thankful in the midst of suffering. The Bible encourages us to always be thankful. That's easy when God answers prayer and delivers us from problems. But it isn't always easy when things go wrong. So how can we remain thankful in the midst of suffering? We have two choices to make. The first is to praise God in spite of what's going on in our lives. Or another way to say that is, in the midst of our troubles and hardships, we can rejoice over the things that are not wrong in our lives. The second choice is to ask, "God, what can I learn from this? What do you want to teach me through this so that I may be closer to you and rejoice more fully in Your goodness?" Those are not easy questions, and the answers are often hard to hear. Sometimes we can only grasp the important lessons in our lives when we go through difficult times. Thank God that the hard times will lead you to better things. In the midst of suffering, give thanks to God and trust Him to lead you to bigger and better things. Prayer Starter: God, I'm thankful for your love and Your presence. Forgive me for grumbling when things go wrong, and remind me of how many things go right in my life. I want to rejoice in you always.
