A Better You: What to Do in the Hard Times? – Joshua 2:6

Song of the Week

Song: Agnus Dei by Michael W. Smith

As the Word of God is a living text, people have different ways of interpreting these texts. So, feel free to share your thoughts and opinions down in the comments below! Remember to like and share on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter!

Uncomfortable Growth

Things that are hard aren’t going to be comfortable. Whether you’re going through heartbreak or financial loss, it’s going to be difficult. What you’re feeling is an emotional crisis – when things are going out of hand and you are unable to control what’s happening on the outside.

A lot of times in life, things will start to spiral out of control, out of your control.

And a lot of times, these crises are going to overlap and compound.

In Joshua 2:6, the spies were hiding in Rahab’s flax seed pile. Their purpose wasn’t meant to be a hide-and-seek spot, it was meant to be converted into linen.

When it was safe to come out, Rahab probably looked at the stack of dried flax and sighed: They were crushed.

Yet, Rahab didn’t say anything to the spies or to anyone about them.

She was okay with that; she knew that she was fulfilling the purpose of God.

She knew that when God intervenes, it’s going to be inconvenient; it’s going to be uncomfortable.

How Can This Help You?

God’s intervention is uncomfortable.

It’s not as rare as you might think it is, too.

Some times, when things get uncomfortable, have faith that it is God. Even if it didn’t start from God, if you pray and give it to God, it will end with God.

Once you start to embrace all the uncomfortable things, you will learn to grow closer to God; you will be familiar with God’s work ethics. There is no fixed pattern as to how God works.

When you start to learn of God’s presence in all your discomfort, you will have more control over the reins of your emotions. Only then will you be more patient with yourself and others.

This is a step towards your purposeful life.

Prophetic Word

You may be facing something new right now, and that’s okay.

Every day is a new day. And every breath is given by God.

So, what do you really have to fear?

Call to Action

As a personal development activity, is there something in your life right now that is painful, something that is uncomfortable?

If there is, embrace it!

I’m not saying to look for trouble if there isn’t. Instead, rejoice and thank God for a peaceful season.

God bless you and your step towards a better you.
