Ephesians 6:13 (KJV) Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
It seems that sometimes every area of your life gets thrown out of whack all at once. We get overwhelmed when there is trouble on every side, but we need to make sure we're geared up for battle. We must remember that we don't wrestle just against flesh and blood. We need to suit up in God's armor.
The trying of our faith produces the kind of character in us that God can use for great things. Although the fire gets hot, God can't meld us into what He desires without it. Plaster a smile on your face and go on through it! I know it gets uncomfortable and even down right painful at times, but God is faithful.
The work that He begins in you, He will bring to completion in you. Even when it seems that you aren't even moving forward, just stand. The important thing is not to retreat. God is working all those problems out for your good. On the other side of these trials is greatness because that's what you are destined for. See yourself how God sees you through the blood of Jesus Christ, as more than a conqueror. In just a short while, you will wonder how you made it over.
