Part 2
You may begin to re-examine your walk, begin to feel despondent. You may begin to question your faith. Especially when you see people who are not believers being blessed right and left. You try to tell yourself not to covet. You try to convince yourself not to hate or feel jealous, but you're questioning yourself AND God.

It is at that moment, you must drop to your knees, give God the biggest praise and thank Him! Thank Him that you're able to drop to your knees by just a command. Thank Him that you have all of your faculties. Thank Him that you have the ability to feel all of these emotions simultaneously, read your Word, ask, seek, pray, etc. for there are those who are unable to read, unable to walk, talk, work, and take for granted many of things that you're complaining about.

God knew you'd be in this situation well before you and I were thought about. So, in ALL of His perfection, He knew there'd be a way out.

Faith (Hebrews 11) is NOT easy, but worth it. The tiniest of all seeds, the mustard seed becomes magnified when we're going through. We have to remember that there's no testimony without a test. Let God use us for His glory. Let’s always strive to do our best, all the while remembering that God is always in control whether we worry or not. Since His Word says to not worry Philippians 4:6 (NIV) – “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.” Anything other, is disobedience. Disobedience is a hindrance to our blessings, so get out of your own way and just let God do what He does best, for if He didn't want to take care of us and use us for His good, He could have made sure we didn't exist at all.
