Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand – Ephesians 6:13

Some people wrongly blame God for many things. For example, someone gets admitted into a school, and after a while, he encounters certain difficulties, which lead to his expulsion from that school. Subsequently, he starts griping and blaming God, asking, “O God, Why did you let this happens to me?” In the first place, did God tell him to go to that school? That’s the question he ought to answer.

When God asks you to do something, and then trouble comes because of what He told you to do, you don’t cower; you remain standing on the Word because you know He sent you. The fact that He sent you doesn’t mean there’ll be no trouble. In Exodus 14, when God told Moses to bring the children of Israel out of Egypt, what He didn’t tell Moses was that they’d be hemmed in between Pharaoh’s charging chariots and the Red Sea. But right there, God said, “Moses, stretch your hand over the water and divide it!” Moses did, and the miracle of miracles took place; the Red Sea parted before them, and the children of Israel walked through on dry ground.

Just because you’ve come to a place where the Red Sea is before you, and the enemy is behind you, doesn’t mean God didn’t send you or He’s not with you. If He sent you, He’s with you, and in the midst of that adversity He wants you to remain standing on His Word! He says in 1 Corinthians 15:58, “Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye steadfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord….”

Focus your life on what God has called you to do and don’t be distracted by the challenges that may come your way. When you focus like that and remain standing on the Word, you’ll find that irrespective of the oppositions or difficult situations, there’s always a miracle for you.
