At one time or another we have been in a place that felt like hell or very close to it. We go through each day doing what we need to do all the while hanging on to a shred of hope that things will get better.
The bible teaches us to be content in whatever state we are in. While that is definitely true and God’s word, it’s important to remember that being content doesn’t mean you are satisfied with what is going on around you. It simply means you are not accepting or giving in to the situation.
Never accept or become comfortable in any situation that you know is not your final destination. Although God is in the fire with us, he doesn’t want to see us there any more than we want to be in there. However, while he is in there with us, he is rooting for us to make it out with our faith intact. Remember, you are in hell but hell is not in you.
Bottom line, you are in your refining period. You are being transformed and all the impurities from your life are being removed. You will emerge better than you ever thought. Don’t let hell control your faith, mood or trust in God. Be and do all you can be. You will be surprised how much you can accomplish in hell. Its just a further testament to how awesome God is.
When you emerge victorious, be sure go back and thank Jesus for all he has done.
You are more than a conqueror!
