Your God Is Bigger Than Your Circumstances

There’s nothing wrong with noticing your negative external circumstances, but then look at somewhere else. Don’t obsess about it. Your God is bigger than your circumstances. Don’t fixate on them.

The Devil is A Master of Appearances

Had the devil succeeded in altering the way Jesus saw Himself, he would have instantly distorted the self-image of Christ, and then taken control of the destiny of Jesus. Jesus did not fall for the trick.

Circumstances Are Never Permanent

Not surprisingly, Jesus did not allow his immediate and temporary circumstances to affect how He saw Himself. He knew that appearances don’t last. Circumstances are never permanent.
