Here’s the thing about frustration: To really get the best out of it, frustration has to turn to celebration. If you stop being frustrated and started celebrating, you would be in a whole different space, and so would your circumstances. You can make your circumstances bow the knee to the Christ in you. It starts with a thought.
(from The Art Of Thinking Brilliantly)
It is very important to know where the line is between faith and presumption. Go and stand as close to that line as possible. God is not worried about your presumption. He is concerned about your unbelief. Some of us are so scared of being presumptuous that we live right back here. Compared to where we could be, the place we are occupying is really a place of unbelief. There is territory in, around, and in front of you that belongs to you but you are not occupying it because you are scared of making a mistake.
(from Brilliant Mentorship)
For no word from God will ever fail.”
Luke 1:37 NIV
Who among you fears the Lord and obeys the word of his servant? Let the one who walks in the dark, who has no light, trust in the name of the Lord and rely on their God.
Isaiah 50:10 NIV
The Sovereign Lord has given me a well-instructed tongue, to know the word that sustains the weary. He wakens me morning by morning, wakens my ear to listen like one being instructed.
Isaiah 50:4 NIV
