I'm walking in Faith -That I'm Healed in Jesus name.
Our Troubles can easily cause us to lose the larger picture about life .
Daily routines and pressures can create doubts about our significance.
And because we are bound ina world of time, it's easy to assume that difficulties such as sickness , conflict , loneliness , insecurity , or fear will become a permanent state of affairs. The Ephesians believers lived with a lot of pressure. Their faith was born in a crucible of riots, courtroom conflict , and economic change ( Acts 19;23 --40 ). Later, when Paul wrote this letter to the Ephesians, he encouraged them to develop and maintain God's perspective on their lives and faith ; What doubts and stresses have caused you to lose perspective. ? Ephesians suggests that you relax--- and join Paul in prayer. Take a look at the big picture of God's work on your behalf. it began long before you arrived and long before your first steps in Christ. it will continue long after you pass from this life . Seeing things in this way can lend perspective to the harsh realities that may dominate your life right now. Paul's prayer ( Ephesians 3;14--21 )
