I could use a lifeline please!

Throughout the New Testament, I read that Jesus always maintained a perfect attitude in every situation because He prayed about everything and worried about nothing. Prayer was His lifeline.

He sought God's guidance about every aspect of His life and allowed the Lord to work out His perfect will without interference.


Christ never became defensive, discouraged, or depressed because His goal was to please the Father rather than to achieve His own agenda. In the midst of trials, He was patient. In the midst of suffering, He was hopeful. In the midst of blessing, He was humble. Even in the midst of ridicule, abuse, and hostility He "made no threats . . . and did not retaliate. Instead, He entrusted Himself to Him who judges justly" (I Peter 2:23)


When people see us do they see the Lord in us? Are we reacting to our circumstances in the flesh or responding to life's challenges in the Spirit? God has called us to demonstrate the love of God through our responses in everyday difficulties. We can have a Christ-like attitude by asking God for strength and wisdom to appropriately respond to every situation so that ultimately the Lord gets the glory.
