4 Phrases That Will Push You Through A Tough Time

You wake up - but you're not so sure it's gonna be a great day. Times are tough for you and you're uncertain things are going to work out. Is that where you are today? If so, I've got 5 phrases that will push you through your tough time.

Get these in your head. Get em in your heart. Write em out on an index card, post it note, or make them your screen saver on that techy smart-phone you have.

Here's your Push-Me-Through-A-Tough-Time List: 

  1. I CAN - Yes, say it like you mean it! Philipians 4:13 says, "I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength." There ya go. Whatever's required, you got it. Whatever it takes, it's in you.
  2. I WILL FINISH - You may have just started or you may started so long ago that you can't remember it. But it's not over. You're not over. Philipians 1:6 lets you know, God's going to finish what he started in you. You are finishing. Period.
  3. I WILL FIGURE THIS OUT - When confusion slaps you hard and you don't know how to solve your dilemna, hang on to 1 Corinthians 10:13. "All you need to remember is that God will never let you down; he'll never let you be pushed past your limit; he'll always be there to help you come through it." (MSG). Your answer is on the way - it'll come to you.
  4. I WILL BE OK - You may not feel ok right now. You may have to swallow this over and over until you get it in your "knower". But I KNOW what Romans 8:28 says about you... All things will work out for good in your life because you love The Lord and you are pursuing him.

Ok, now with these 4 phrases, let's shape a prayer around them so you can keep pushing when you feel like quiting....

God, I need your strength to push me through this tough time. I've been on the edge and I've felt like quitting. But I'm pulling on your strength to get me around this corner. With you, I CAN do all the things that seem too hard for me. I've got what it takes, and I'm feeling a tinge of energy coming through me already. I WILL FINISH with you're help and direction. I know you are for me and want to see me succeed. I WILL FIGURE THIS OUT as you whisper answers in my ear and give me the ideas I need. I WILL BE OK because you said I will be ok. All things are working in my favor and I know you see me. Thank you that I'm not alone through this time. Thank you that you are rushing to my side and rescuing me. In Jesus Name.

How Do You Shut Down Voice of Accusation and Sweep Your Mistakes Under the Rug?

How Do You Shut Down Voice of Accusation and Sweep Your Mistakes Under the Rug?

Your sitting at a stop light. It's been 3 seconds since it turned red to green. The guy in front of you is not moving. Instead, he's looking at his phone. You're late. You're honking.

He doesn't move because he's jamming to his favorite beat and doesn't hear your horn.

You're seriously thinking about pulling up to his bumper and giving it a little love tap. But then something takes over, you lay down on your horn, give him the finger, and the nastiest look you can muster.

Oh, yeah, and you're a Christian.

Good thing you peeled that fish bumper sicker off your car last week. Wouldn't want to give believer's a bad rap.

The guy finally figures out the light is green but now yellow. Looks in his mirror and gives you a "sorry wave" then drives off. But you're stuck, cause the light is red again. And you still can't get through.

Now your cussing. You're adrenaline is pumping. You feel like fighting.

Oh, yeah, and did I mention...you're a Christian?

So now you hear a voice. Something like this:

  • "Why would God give you favor for your important meeting today?"
  • "Look how easily you lose your cool on the road. How can you expect good things to happen to you?"
  • "You call yourself a Christian? When was the last time you prayed? What good have you done for your fellow man lately?"
  • "Why should God heal your mother of cancer?"
  • "Why should God give you a raise?"
  • "Why should God help you graduate at the top of your class?"

Do these sound familiar?

Here's how you can shut down that voice of accusation AND sweep your mistakes under the rug!

You get a grip and clear your head. You remember what the Bible says about your stupidity.

Justice and right will make you strong. You will be safe from oppression and terror. Isaiah 54:4

But looking at that verse, here's what's easy to get twisted. You're thinking it's your right that will make you strong. But it's not. (You're not righteous enough in your actions, remember the red light incident?)

It's Christ's right that makes you strong. And that's what makes you safe from oppression (that accusing voice).

See the difference?

You're established on Jesus' righteousness, not your own.

Not your good behavior. Not your stellar rage-less moments. Nothing you can do can make you right. It's all based on how right Jesus was. And since he decided to trade places with you, you take on his righteousness.

I no longer have a righteousness of my own, the kind that is gained by obeying the Law. I now have the righteousness that is given through faith in Christ, the righteousness that comes from God and is based on faith. Philipians 3:9 GNB

Now, here's how you sweep it all under the rug and erase the past:

Now that you're conscious that the Lord has made you righteous, you have the strength to stay cool the next time road-rage hits.

Or the next time, you feel like flicking someone off.

Or the next time you feel like blowing up like a volcano because your kid has failed to clean their room and take out the trash.

Or even the bigger, tougher moments...

When crap hits the fan, you run out of gas, you forget to pay your credit card bill, you slip up and say something totally uncalled for...

You get it, don't ya?

Knowing Christ has made you right means you can apologize to those you wrong and you can decide to do it differently next time.

Here's how you can pray:

God, help me to get a grip on my righteousness in  Christ. Help me to understand what I have through your son. When I've failed, I choose to see myself as you do - in Christ's righteousness. Clean. Pure. Forgiven. And the more I understand this, the quicker I will be to shut down the voice of the accuser when he comes to me - so that your unmerited favor will work for me. Thank you for making me right in Christ, even though I don't deserve it.
