Your forefathers ate the manna in the desert, yet they died. But here is the bread that comes down from heaven, which a man may eat and not die.

 

Our Attitude towards challenges

PDF

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.  - Philippians 4:13.

What is the attitude of a believer towards challenges, does he run away from them or does he welcome them. The truth is as believers we have been equipped to confront challenges, faith is about confronting challenges head on. When we come to faith, we come to a place where we are being trained and equipped to confront challenges and overcome them. We are being trained and equipped to move mountains. But this is not to be done with our own strength or might, this is to be carried through the help of the one who provides the strength. Our attitude therefore is that which recognises the following facts:

a. It is not by my might or power, but by the power of spirit of the Lord working through me, Zechariah 4:6.

b. That if God be for me, who can be against me. - Romans 8:31.

c. That greater is he that is in me than whatever challenge I am facing. - 1 John 4:4.

Our attitude therefore should be that of someone who delights in confronting challenges having been equipped to do so, and not someone who flees from challenges. I believe there is a name that the world calls those who flee from challenges , they are called cowards, the kingdom of God is not breeding cowards, the kingdom of God is breeding men with the attitude that says 'All things are possible through Christ who is our strength'.
