Jesus said, "In life, you will have difficulties." He acknowledged that we’re going to have challenges; everything is not going to be perfect. He went on to say, I have the answer, "but be of good cheer." He didn’t say be discouraged, be upset, be sad, be offended. In the tough times, you need your joy. Joy is what gives you strength.
The scripture says in Deuteronomy 33:25, “As your days are, so shall your strength be.” This means your strength will always be equivalent to what you need. If something goes wrong, you’re going to have the strength to deal with it. There is grace for every stage of life.

Nothing can stand against our God! The Psalmist said, “Let God arise and His enemies be scattered.” When you make God bigger in your life, when you let Him arise, focusing on His greatness, knowing that He is in control—your enemies will be scattered.

Sometimes we get so caught up in having it our way that we’re out of balance. A mature attitude says, “God, even if it doesn’t happen my way, even if my plans don’t work out, I’m still going to enjoy my life knowing that You’re in complete control.”
God made you as you are on purpose. He gave you your looks, your height, your skin color, your personality. Nothing about you is by accident. You didn’t get overlooked. You didn’t get left out. God calls you His masterpiece.
When times get tough and the storms of life come your way, anchor yourself to the goodness of God and the promises of His Word, and you will experience His very best for your life! Discover the victorious life God has for you with Joel’s inspiring 3-message resource, “Victory in the Storm”: http://c.osteen.co/Victory
Your dream may look impossible, but God said His blessings will chase you down, that you’re surrounded by favor, that goodness and mercy are following you, that He wants to give you the desires of your heart. Don’t be afraid to ask big. Take the limits off of God.
When you go out each day, represent God in a great way. Be a witness. Be a positive influence in people’s lives. If you’ll put this simple principle into action, you’ll not only make a difference in other people’s lives, but it’ll make a difference in your own life.
Proverbs 20 says, “Since the Lord is directing our steps, why do we try to figure out everything that happens along the way?” Don’t fight your delays. Don’t fight the inconveniences. You may not understand it, but God knows what He is doing. He can see the big picture. Dare to trust Him.
What God started in your life He will finish. You may be in a difficult season. Just keep on shining. You’re not going to come out the same. You’re going to come out increased, promoted, better than you were before.
