Paint over it!

Paint over it! 

Sometimes, the way to win a battle is not to fight it. 

Very often we shift the focus from God to our problems, which takes our eyes off from the future and fix them on our past. 

Sometimes to erase something, you need to paint over it. Its like, you have a black paper of your past and you pour different colors over it. If you pour any colour over a black sheet of paper, the black will be less visible. And the more you keep painting over it, the black won’t be seen at all. Declare God’s word and promises over your situations. Don’t focus on the problem and wait for an explosion that will change everything overnight. Paint God’s word over it and what bothers you will fade away. 

Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it my own. But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 3:13-14)

Some people miss out on their answers because they refuse to move ahead in life. They want to drill deep into their problems and create a valley out of it. They know so much about what is wrong that there is no room to think about what is right. I’ve learned that if you keep your eyes on God, the weight of your problems will be much lighter and eventually fade out of your memory. 

Do not dwell on your problems. Let the word of God rewrite every reality. Peace of mind is not gained by the absence of difficulties, but by the presence of God that overshadows everything. The same amount of efforts you put in to drill into your past is all it takes to look into your future. Lift God’s word and truth above every situation and circumstance. 

This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. (1 John 5:14)

Are there past memories of hurt, hate, disappointments that you need to paint over with the future God has for you? 

Do you have problems that seem big only because you are allowing it to stay in your mind? 

Stay blessed and keep your eyes on God!

“I am fine”, the most told lie in the world?

“I am fine”, the most told lie in the world? 

How often have you been in the lowest valleys and yet responded saying you’re well?

Sometimes, our ability to hide emotions can give the biggest actors a run for their money.  In faith, you are declaring you are well? Thats good, but you may still need help! 

Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfil the law of Christ.(Galatians 6:2)

Is it ok to say you’re not alright? : 

I love david because of his honesty. He was so open about every emotion he went through. I once sat and read about 30 Psalms continuously and it was nothing short of an emotion ride. 

We all make mistakes. We all have valleys and mountains. God has placed people around us to be our motivation system. We are not designed to live in isolation. We were created for relationships. First, with God and then with the people around us. The more you isolate yourself, the more the chances are of you going further down in that valley. 

Could it be true that God is sending people into your life to help you and you are busy calling out to God? 

Well, you may say why would someone care about my problems, trust me there are many people who care. I would not have been where I am today if it wasn’t for the people who stood with me during the tough times. 

Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another(Proverbs 27:17)

  • You don’t need to tell the whole world your problems but identify the right people God has placed around you to build you. Remember God uses people. 
  • Not every person is a brutus. There are people you can trust and who are willing to stand with you no matter what. 
  • The person who weeps with you in tragedy will be there to rejoice with you in your success. 

 So encourage each other and build each other up, just as you are already doing.(1 Thessalonians 5:11) 

Blessings, 

Joel.
