A prudent man foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself: but the simple pass on, and are punished. (Prov 22:3)
Tragedy! It is a word that we do not want to hear, but it is real and has impacted many lives. Some of us have experienced it at some level in life. Below, are some insights that can help us—
- Losing a beloved pet has impacted the lives of many.
- The loss of a loved one. Such a loss can affect us emotionally, physically, and even mentally. Some do not recover from such a blow and give up hope.
The word of God tells us that many are the afflictions of the righteous. We live in a fallen world and tragedy is part of the package. Have you ever heard the phrase–I never promised you a rose garden? Well, the reality of this life is that we live in a fallen world. We are going to have all kinds of problems and issues in life.
The good news is that Jesus has given us a way out. In this post, we are going to see ways on how to minimize tragedies in our life. The number one thing to have in mind is that we are in a war. As we enter the realm of prayer, we are on a battlefield. It is a dangerous dimension and we need to be prepared.
In a war, there are casualties. People will get hurt and even die. It is no different in the spirit realm. Tragedies will come into our lives. The unfortunate reality is our loved ones will die, but the main thing is to be prepared for it when it comes. The word of God says that the Holy Spirit will show us things to come. (John 16:13)
Fight to win!
I like to dabble in war history. One of my favorite heroes was Army General George S Patton. He was no non-sense and was a genius in the art of war. One of his favorite quotes ( I will clean it up because he used profanity in his speeches) is that..the object of war is not to die for your country but to make the other person die for his. He added that Americans play to win all the time. We, in the body, need to have an attitude of a winner. There is no such thing as a good sport and lose in battle.
The word of God tells us that we always, win (Romans 8:37) Always, means, always. The question to ask is why do we have unanswered prayers? First, it is not God’s fault. There are adjustments and conditions that we need to meet. Second, our enemy is clever, very legalistic and any place you give him, he will use it to his advantage. Finally, we live in a fallen world. There will be tragedies that will come into our lives. The main thing is to, always, seek the Lord. Having this in mind will help us to understand the mysteries of prayer. If you are interested in getting more insight into this study, click on the link below.
Prayer- Thank you, Lord, for your word. Lord, prepare me for those things that I must go through. Show me the things that I can change through prayer. Thank you, Lord, that you show me things to come. I confess that I have the mind of Christ. I am more than a conqueror and victory is mine. Continue to give me the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him…In Jesus’ name. Amen.
