Every now and then we’re often faced with setbacks, trials and temptations because you chose to lead a godly lifestyle that makes you wish you could just fly away to someplace far from all of these setbacks. It could be at school, amongst peers or even in the home. In the scripture, 1 Thessalonians 3:1-7 GNB studying the life of Paul and the early Christian we got a crystal clear understanding that suffering and setbacks are an inevitable part of a Christian life. All that matters is your attitude towards whatever situation it may be.
Instead of just giving up hope, packing up and flying to your imaginary universe on paper planes ✈️, we should stand our ground and face whatever trials our adversary the devil throws our way. Roar at them because we have hope and believe on the one true and loving father – GOD.
Most times God keeps quiet when we’re faced by these setbacks, not because He hates us or He doesn’t care. He uses every trial and temptations we face to refine you for His glory.
Therefore, as believers (godly youths) whenever we’re faced by trials, setbacks, lack etc. don’t give up on God for He said in His word, Isaiah 40:31, “But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint“.
So shun every paper plane you think is going to carry you away to someplace far from whatever situation you’re going through. In fact you were made for a time such as that – giving all glory to God for he cares for you. Trust in the Lord and wait on Him.
