Successfully Achieving What Should Be Simple:
You and I should have been successfully achieving all our tasks. All our tasks would have been simple instead of hard work. But something happened, and that is where hard work was born.
Then to Adam, He said, “Because you have heeded the voice of your wife, and have eaten from the tree of which I commanded you, saying, ‘You shall not eat of it’:
“Cursed is the ground for your sake;
In toil (hard labor,)you shall eat of it
All the days of your life. Genesis 3:17
We could have been living simple lives, but now we have to experience hard labor before we have feelings of successfully achieving.
However, God is still giving us the strength to get through.
Successfully Achieving Mental Toughness:
Many doubts and fears can fill your and my mind. While some fears may be, we dig ourselves into a whole with much negative thinking. In doing this, we prevent ourselves from successfully achieving.
It is hard work to get out of the pit you and I place ourselves in. But with positive and uplifting thoughts, we can accomplish it.
There is even advice from the Bible telling us what should be filling our minds.
Meditate on These Things
Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things. Philippians 4:8
In other words, beautiful thoughts will take us far. And you will also need the help of the Holy Spirit to see you through.
A Very Challenging Task:
Reading the Bible from beginning to end is a difficult task. It cannot and should not be done without asking for help from the Holy Spirit.
If you do not pray and ask for help, expect to feel tired and bored. When you get the help of the Holy Spirit, He will open your eyes to many truths to help you along the way.
And once you finish the hard work of reading the Bible from cover to cover, you will feel like you have successfully achieved something precious. God wants to open your and my mind to His way of thinking.
