This is good news for you; God understands the situation more than you think. God has promised that every evil counsel against you cannot stand - it shall come to pass. He has promised that good and mighty things will happen in your life - He shall bring it to pass. He promised that you will eat the good of the land - He shall bring it to pass. He says all the enemies confronting you shall be defeated - He shall bring it to pass. He promised that you and your children will be for signs and wonders - He shall bring it to pass. He promised deliverance from all your troubles - it shall come to pass.
When God is the actor on the stage of a person’s life, all the other actors will disappear. Any force or power hindering what God has promised in your life, will wither in the name of Jesus.
Psalm 107:26-29: They mount up to the heaven, they go down again to the depths: their soul is melted because of trouble.  They reel to and fro, and stagger like a drunken man, and are at their wit’s end.  Then they cry unto the Lord in their trouble, and he bringeth them out of their distresses.  He maketh the storm a calm, so that the waves thereof are still.
These are people looking for help they have tried everything they know. The doctors, philosophy, science, human intelligence, and nothing is working; they were confused and then, they cried unto God. God will calm the troubles seas, and also perform His words.
Jeremiah 1:12: Then said the Lord unto me, Thou hast well seen: for I will hasten my word to perform it.
God is not interested in the suffering of anyone, but there are some things you have to do if you want the promises of God for your life to come to pass. It is important because your actions may cause a hindrance or delay or lack of fulfillment to God’s promises. Despite God’s promises, a believer may face some tests and troubles especially while waiting for the fulfillment of these promises.
Let us examine what a believer should not do in the middle of tests, trials and troubles so that he or she will not land in more trouble.
SEVEN DON’TS TO NOTE
1. Do not blame God: When some people are praying, they lament and blame God and one would wonder if it was God that physically brought down the problem on them. They say: “God why me? I am Your child and this is happening to me. “A” is there and doing well, “B” is a witch and is doing well, why me?” God is not moved by your sympathy, crying or pity party.
2. Do not break down: If you break down in tears and sobs, the devil will be happy and will continue to make fun of you. I have a question for you: Imagine you have a baby who is hungry and is crying seriously and incessantly. You have already prepared his milk and it is hot. You have placed the bottle of milk in a bowl of cold water to cool down. Would you place the bottle teeth on the lips of this child with the milk as hot as it is? Certainly not. I am sure you will find other means of making the child understand that the milk is too hot at the moment and that he just has to wait for it to cool off.
