"Man that is born of a woman is of few days, and full of trouble. He cometh forth like a flower, and is cut down: he fleeth also as a shadow, and continueth not." [Job 14:1]

Everyone struggles with something. Nobody else would choose to have the problems that they do. When it comes to different types of difficulties, we have two primary preferences. Our first choice is that there should be none at all. The second choice is that if we are going to have problems of any kind, we would much rather trade our problems for the problems of another person. God has made it clear to his followers in the Bible that we will face adversity simply because we follow his teachings. Paul wrote in Second Timothy 3:12, "Yes, and all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution." This passage is from Paul's letter to Timothy. Because we have chosen to follow Christ, God does not guarantee that we will be delivered from all of life's difficulties once we have done so. The trials that you face in life are not meant to destroy you but rather to shape you into the person that God always planned for you to be.

Please, my dear brother and sister, take to heart the realization that God frequently employs adversity as a tool to simply assist him in the process of pruning us. Because when we face challenges, we are better able to identify the aspects of our lives and the people in them that do not contribute to our success, and we are then in a position to eliminate those aspects and people. Many of us, if we are honest, would say that if it weren't for your difficulty, you never would have slowed down, and as a result, you never would have realized that your life was missing something important without the presence of God in it. However, your difficulty forced you to slow down and make that realization.

One of the things that adversity will do to you is force you to take a good, hard look at yourself and assess whether or not there are modifications to your life that should be made. Making the mistake of trying to influence the actions or behaviors of other individuals is one of the most serious errors that a person can commit. You are wasting your time by trying to make it work when there is no way that it will ever be successful. You must have the awareness to know that if you want a change in your surroundings, you are the one who must initiate the change for the change to take place. You have no choice but to let your problems propel you full force into the path of your destiny.

Declarations are bold and clear.  Neither are they confessions or suggestions. God is on our side, so we make declarations and proclamations. The power for the miraculous to occur in your life is yours to declare and unleash.

Pronounce it, order it, and proclaim it with the authority of a king, for the Lord God will support you.
