TEXT: AND WE KNOW THAT ALL THINGS WORK TOGETHER FOR GOOD TO THEM THAT LOVE GOD, TO THEM WHO ARE CALLED ACCORDING TO HIS PURPOSE.(Romans 8:28)
Life will always throw at you challenges that you must confront and conquer to emerge a champion. The ability to keep faith and be focused in those trying situations is one of the most significant skills you will ever learn. Learning coping skills and survival skills have become very important and imperative for leaders and indeed every one who really wants to succeed in the game of life.
When you have faith and are focused on your dreams and goals, there is nothing you cannot achieve.
Whether you are faced with challenges at home, school, workplace, church or community, I recommend you make coping and survival skills part of your skill set. These skills set will always help you face every challenge with gait, and still help you have the last laugh in those challenges.
It is not always easy to stay motivated in difficult times, but finding the proper balance will eventually come natural to you such that whenever your positive attitude seems threatened, you will be able to stand strong and avoid being knocked off course by negative circumstance. It is very helpful to always call up and keep company with positive and supportive people who believe in you and can motivate you to succeed. Thus, people skills is another important skill to have to succeed at everything.
Faced with challenging times involving a death sentence pronounced by the king Nebuchadnezzar in Babylon, Daniel soon realised that he needed the company and support of his other friends – Hananiah, Mishael and Azariah(Daniel 2: 17) to be able to stand tall and win the battle of threat to their lives. Keeping company with these friends of his who teamed up with him and prayed about the situation, brought the needed victory that made all of them to have the last laugh in the affairs of the land of their captivity. It is my prayer for you today that you will not chicken out in the midst of what ever challenges you are facing today in Jesus name. You too can have the last laugh in every situation.
