Read this excerpt from Steve Backlund's Let's Just Laugh at That:
There Are No Solutions to This Situation
Laughable Assumptions Behind This Lie:
- This situation is so bad that even prayer is pointless.
- The devil has won a complete victory; therefore, resistance is futile.
- God cannot work this situation for good in the lives impacted by it.
- God does not have any wisdom for what should be done.
- Breakthrough is always difficult and will take a long time.
- God is angry and does not want to help those involved.
The Truth: God makes a way where there seems to be no way.
- The Red Sea parted when it looked hopeless (Exodus 14).
- God had a plan to defeat Goliath that no one was aware of (1 Samuel 17).
- Bitter waters were surprisingly made sweet with the unlikely solution of throwing a tree into them (Exodus 15:22-27).
- God defied logic by shutting a lion’s mouth to protect Daniel (Daniel 6:22).
- The three Hebrew children were supernaturally protected in the fire when it looked hopeless (Daniel 3:19-25).
- Jesus multiplied food when provision was limited (Luke 9:10-17). 7) A famine ended in a day (2 Kings 7).
- Money needed to pay taxes was found in the unusual location of a fish’s mouth (Matthew 17:24-27).
Strategies for Overcoming This Lie:
Believe there is always a way – “God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it” (1 Corinthians 10:13). There is a way out of a mess and a way into victory. Believing that will draw to you the answers needed (James 1:5-8).
Implement the power of Romans 8:28 – “And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose” (Romans 8:28). God has a supernatural ability to work everything for good in the life of the believer.
Feed your hope on testimonies of those who have overcome your situation and from those who have overcome great odds in life – Encourage yourself by discovering that there are people who have come out of what you are facing (and even more difficult situations).
Declarations to Renew Your Mind: 1) God is working things for good in this situation. 2) God is revealing to me a powerful step to take concerning this. 3) A miracle will happen concerning this situation.
