Philippians 1:20-21 the apostle Paul encourages us to embrace our identity as those who are in Christ, and to live out the implications of that identity in all aspects of our lives
We seek help when the burdens are lofty and we cannot carry them or manage them ourselves. Who can help us in such times? The bible helps us to understand that you can rely on God in the overwhelming times.
Whenever we face a dire issue in our lives, our the initial response is to resolve the issue and revert back to our current normal. The normal, where the status quo has the home field advantage. We exhaust all of our available resources, seek the guidance of those who are close to us and if their guidance is not satisfactory to our determined outcome, we see the guidance of others. I am realizing that whenever we haste to resolve our issues, we rob God of teaching, training and preparing us for the future endeavor which we will face.
