Life comes with challenges, some unapologetically difficult to navigate. There are seasons in our life where we feel as if we’re barely hanging on. This season can encompass discouragement, failure, fear, unfulfilled dreams and many disappointments that cause faith to waiver and doubt in trusting God’s promises. The harder the season and the longer it lingers makes it difficult to stand causing hope to be lost.

When these seasons occur, our mind can become confused. We believe we will make it, yet the circumstance of the season says I don’t see how.

So, how does one manage to navigate through the difficulties of any season? Is it possible to be rooted and grounded in the turmoil of a stormy season? In order to adapt to weather in any season keys are needed.

Keys grant access to understanding something that is beyond our reach by leading us to the source of knowledge. The following five keys are essential for any season:

The First Key: “blessed is the one who TRUSTS IN the Lord.”
Learn and be willing to trust that the Lord is who He says He is and that He will do what He promised He would do.

The Second Key: “whose confidence IS the Lord”
Your confidence must rest in knowing that God is bigger than anything you will ever face thus He has our best interest at heart.

The Third Key: “be like a tree PLANTED by the water.”
Tress are firmly planted thus equipping them to withstand the worst of storms. We too, must be firmly planted and rooted in God’s word so that it might empower us to stand when the storms come.

The Fourth Key: “does not FEAR”
Knowing who we are in Christ, and accepting that truth will help eliminate any fear that arises in our lives. Once you embrace the fact that you are a chosen daughter of the King, fear must leave.

The Fifth Key: “does not WORRY.”
This key hinges on all of the other keys. When your trust and confidence are in the Lord, you are planted in His word and intentionally living a fearless life, there is no need to WORRY and therefore you can stand firmly.

Remember, you are God’s girl and He has given you everything needed for life and godliness. His promises to you are from everlasting to everlasting, written throughout His word. From Genesis to Revelations He has given you the keys to be victorious and face any season. Thus, you are equipped and empowered to stand {withstand} any storm!

Jeremiah 17:7-8--Blessed is the man that trusteth in the Lord, and whose hope the Lord is.For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit.

Proverbs 14:26--In the fear of the Lord one has strong confidence, and his children will have a refuge.
