Times are hard, there is no mincing of words about this. When the times are tough, dogged faith is the essential ingredient to remain afloat. Faith in God is the key to pleasing God and walking in His perfect will. Faith in the ability of God to strengthen you and uphold you in the very midst of adversity.
Keep faith alive no matter what the opposition!
In doing these, there has to be an unshakable belief in the power (the dynamic ability to effect change) God has and has made available to you. Remain optimistic setting your eyes ahead on His words (and promises).
Allow your language conform with your belief (faith). Speak the optimism into reality.
Model your actions/behavior accordingly.
Pray as though your reality depends solely on God.
Mountains are before your eyes because that is what the situation depicts however, your faith can create a scene devoid of mountains/obstacles instead a plain of green and abundance. This simple act has two purposes; one to strengthen you for the now and enable you see the changes that conform with your desires/dreams/aspirations. Note however, that this desire/dream/aspiration must be in keeping with the will of God.
Faith is key to receiving from God. Without faith it is impossible to please God. He remains eternally God. He does not change. Only He can give you the dynamic ability to effect change in your circumstances.
God is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ever ask or imagine.
Keep hope alive!
