Believe God Not The Circumstances

by Hazel Straub

Discouraged by your circumstances? Thinking that everything is going wrong and nothing is good?

Ask Holy Spirit to help you see your circumstances through the eyes of Jesus Christ. Take another look. Let him show you  the promise and not what you see in the natural. Nothing is impossible, when you place your trust in God and believe him. See yourself victorious, whole and complete and stronger because of the trial.

It looked like the enemy had won, when Jesus died on the cross. But this became the enemy’s worst nightmare, with the resurrection. The blood of Jesus cleanses us from all unrighteousness.  We receive salvation, healing, deliverance and freedom from sin and curses. Jesus conquered the enemy and his victory is our victory. We have our seat high next to Jesus above all the powers of darkness and they are under our feet. We are victorious!

But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved— and raised us up with Him and seated us with Him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the coming ages He might show the immeasurable riches of His grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. (Ephesians 2:4-7)

      • You’re welcome! It illustrates what we do to the enemy. We are not victims of the schemes and devices of the enemy. The enemy is under our feet!

  3. Reblogged this on Prayers and Promises and commented:
    My circumstances are not the best today. More Doctors, more tests, and it’s just frustrating. But God’s view is much brighter. Thank you Pure Glory for lifting my head with this insightful post.


    • Thank you for the reblog, Diana. No matter what challenges we face, Jesus has overcome sin, disease, and every cursed. The enemy has been stripped of his power. Praying and decreeing abundant life, the light and love of Jesus surround you with his grace.
