Trouble… ? Challenges …

“But man is born to trouble as the sparks and the flames fly upward.” Job 5:7
I went to get some gas into the car and decided to pay cash rather than using a card for the payment. I walked up to the payment window and handed over my money. She told me to go ahead and use the pump but I requested for my receipt and I immediately noticed that the amount she stated was less than the amount I gave her. Promptly I stated that the amount I gave her was more, she retorted that was the amount she saw. I had to insist on the camera being played back to review the whole transaction.
That was a trouble; no it’ was a challenge that I least anticipated. It has been an all-peaceful day where things had worked accordingly before this incident.
Job clearly tells us that challenges of life will always come and we must be prepared to handle them anytime it shows up.
 The reality of life as we live daily is that all may not line up as you have planned.
What do you do when the unanticipated happens?
When the storms come to the eagle it does not call it trouble but it takes it as a challenge to soar higher.
Life may throw some curves to you don’t overbeat yourself black and blue asking why me?
Rather see what is the challenge and with the guidance of the Holy Spirit you will prevail as you handle the situation.
You don’t primarily don’t go looking for trouble but whenever it shows up know that  you are an overcomer and with God on your side you will surely prevail.
“Little children, you are of God [you belong to Him] and have [already] defeated and overcome them [the agents of the antichrist], because He Who lives in you is greater (mightier) than he who is in the world.” 1 John4: 4
