In [Christian] Coaching, I hear far too many "Christians" say, "But you don't know how it is when you are staring (whatever the "monster" is) in the face."
Hence, the problem. What stare at "Monsters?" Why stare at problems and not the problem-solver? Why stare at the situation and not the solution provider? Faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things unseen (Hebrew 11:1). Stare at what you DESIRE to see and not what is.
Take it up a notch. Give thanks for what you do not yet see but believe will be manifested. Show God His 'credit' is off the FICO chart! And when it boils down to it, our supernatural God-given power is from the spiritual realm and not the natural realm. Yet, it can obliterate anything in the natural.
Everything we face in life provides the opportunity for us to experience God's sufficiency. And in due time, God will give us a chance to share what we have learned. I am doing that now. I am sharing with you what I have learned and it is fail-proof.
