Details:  Coping with the Tough Times -Habakkuk 1:12-17. ( Part 1)
Overcoming difficult times, is predicated upon the heavenly convictions rather than the earthly one. The person who has God's point of view is the one who overcomes. Thus it's imperative to learn God's ways and to implement them, regularly. We are no different than the prophet with our reactions - perplexed and confused. We pray for our nation and now we are dealing with a pandemic. That's not what we were expecting. So now we must act spiritually and not inpulsevely. God's Truth and the Holy Spirit must guide us and not our emotions. "Thy word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path." Psalm 119:105
Paul reminds us that we have the mind of Christ (1Cor. 2:16 )
So whenever we face trials of every type, we must view them from God's perspective, the heavenly view. The earthly view is limited and negative. The heavenly view is unlimited, positive and pertinent. God alone has the answers and solutions to our problems and needs. The more we allow God and His Truth to govern our thoughts and our hearts, the more we conquer our problems and enemies. Keep in mind that right thinking leads to right living and right feelings. That's why we must have our minds transformed daily by the Holy Spirit and the Bible.(Rom. 12:1-2;Isa. 26:3)
Thinking spiritually will lead to peace and victory. Practice the discipline of Biblical meditation and you will succeed and prosper (Psalm 1).
