Stop talking constantly about the situation you are "going through." Decide to get on through it! What do I mean by this statement? I mean, don't accept your present, temporary situation as your future, permanent situation.

Despite your current circumstances, make up your mind to get on with your life and fulfill your divine purpose and calling.

God wants each of us to come through whatever situations we may face in life. We are not to be moved by what we see, but by what we do not see. This is what the Apostle Paul meant when he wrote that we walk by faith, not by sight. (2 Cor. 5:7) Today is the day to begin to walk by faith—right out of our present circumstances!

If you have been saying for years, "I'm going through this situation, "you need to change your story. Begin to declare: "I've had enough! Now is the time I'm going to get through this mess!"

The Bible contains many promises which can deliver you today. If you will believe and appropriate these promises, you will begin to see your circumstances line up with the Word and will of God—eventually, if not immediately.

You see, it's the devil who tells us that we will never be victorious, that we will never go through what we're going through. But in 1 Corinthians 10:13 (NIV) we are told, No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it.

This is your verse to take hold of and stand on. God is faithful. He will provide a way out. So you can take your stand of faith and boldly proclaim, "I'm going to go through with what I've been going through." Natural circumstances may still remain unchanged, but between you and God, you are already through that situation.

Some people stay in the same hopeless situation their whole lives, never making a firm decision to seek God and His power to get through the circumstances they face. The commandment for us to be longsuffering does not require us to stay in a miserable situation one second longer than is absolutely necessary.

Here's how we poise ourselves to break through: And be not conformed to this world, but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God (Rom. 12:2).

Be transformed by renewing your mind to the Word of God. Then you will know what is the good and perfect will of the Lord, and will be able to go through—once and for all —what you've been going through so long.
