Today is named Rethink because we will often face lass than ideal circumstances. It is easy to get stuck in a cycle of complaint as though they were purposely done against us. “Why me?” becomes a frequently asked question. Take a rethink, how we think about our circumstances determines the direction we take within them.
Papa does not want us complaining about what happens to us, He wants us to think differently. He desires us to ask Him what the purpose of our situation is and what is there to learn? Our circumstances can be character building, trail blazing, growth spurts or training ground. It is important that we ask the Holy Spirit what it is and respond accordingly.
“Dear brothers and sisters, when troubles of any kind come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy. For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow. So let it grow, for when your endurance is fully developed, you will be perfect and complete, needing nothing.”
James 1:2-4 NLT
