Handling a life ‘hole’

Conclusion: Write out your own “Though...., I will....” statements including a praise stemming from confidence in His greater plan. Learn to rejoice in God’s awesome power to work through our defeat, discouraging times, difficult trials, sickness and problems.

What are five things that you cannot change about yourself?

While on the one hand we love to exercise our control, we have to admit, though perhaps reluctantly, there are many things that we simply cannot change. They are chosen for us–such as our height, sex, family, etc. Some believe that it is all by luck. That simply is not true.

God has stepped into our lives and set us where we are. Yes, through our decisions, we have made many other decisions, some we like and some we do not, but those unchangeables about our persons are with us, often for life.

True spiritual growth requires a full acceptance of who we are. God purposely made us that way. Any challenge to it can easily become a subtle fight with God. We perhaps can have a nose adjustment, etc., but many things we should not change or reject like our parents, race, intelligence factor, etc. List the few things that you personally struggle with regarding your life. Thank the Lord for who you are. He loves you!

Handling contradictions

1 Timothy 6:15-16

1“Then Elisha said, “Listen to the word of the LORD; thus says the LORD, 'Tomorrow about this time a measure of fine flour will be sold for a shekel, and two measures of barley for a shekel, in the gate of Samaria.'” The royal officer on whose hand the king was leaning answered the man of God and said, “Behold, if the LORD should make windows in heaven, could this thing be?” Then he said, “Behold, you will see it with your own eyes, but you will not eat of it.”

3 “Now there were four leprous men at the entrance of the gate; and they said to one another, “Why do we sit here until we die? ... And they arose at twilight to go to the camp of the Arabians....”

18 “It happened just as the man of God had spoken to the king, saying, “Two measures of barley for a shekel and a measure of fine flour for a shekel, will be sold tomorrow about this time at the gate of Samaria.” Then the royal officer answered the man of God and said, “Now behold, if the LORD should make windows in heaven, could such a thing be?” And he said, “Behold, you will see it with your own eyes, but you will not eat of it.” And so it happened to him, for the people trampled on him at the gate and he died” (2 Kings 7:1-2, 3-5, 18-20 NASB).
