The normal state of any human being under God's submission is to be blessed, and He desires to bless those who trust in His provision. We often want signs and blessings evident in our life to move, but faith is to move without any proof. The moment we start following God, without chasing it.
During the difficult seasons in life, God is busy forming and shaping our character, and we need to go through our struggles to become who God destined us to be. There are no loopholes in life. We would often pray for miracles to help us get through challenging times, but we should have faith in God that everything we go through qualifies us for what is to come.
By the power of the cross, God has already set us free from our old life, but even though we are free, we will still experience hardships and challenging times. God is in every season of our life, and He alone will guide us to get up and out of our circumstances
As Christians, the friendships we build and form should be determined by our relationship with God. Jesus was known and befriended by everyone, but He only journeyed with the twelve disciples. We, as believers, need to build our life intentionality in the pursuit of the Kingdom of God and build relationships with those who will support us and give us guidance in life.
