There are many threats that encircle the human being, waiting for an opportunity to enter a person’s life. We see many people who are discouraged, frustrated and disappointed. However, just as there are people who have given up, there are also those who have overcome their battles; these are the people you should look up to.
But he himself went a day’s journey into the wilderness, and came and sat down under a broom tree. And he prayed that he might die, and said, “It is enough! Now, Lord, take my life, for I am no better than my fathers!” Then as he lay and slept under a broom tree, suddenly an angel touched him, and said to him, “Arise and eat.” (1 Kings 19:4-5)
Do not look at what happened in your past, do not despair nor wonder if you have overcome that problem. Maybe you look at the lives of other people, and doubts and fears arise. Do not be overwhelmed by your problems or fears.
Those who trust in God persevere till the end; they do not give up.
God gives confidence and assurance to those who have their eyes on Him. There will always be struggles and challenges, but when such obstacles arise, always keep in mind that it is only a threat. Together with God, you will overcome.
– Bishop Bira Fonseca
