When we’re in trouble, why do we try to avoid consequences so often?
There is power in facing our consequences, because when we endure them, we experience a few things:

-The pain is temporary
-The recovery can start immediately
-You’re walking down the road to maturity
When you face your consequences or your battles, it’s easy to feel like your all alone, but there is a fundamental understanding when it comes to the scriptures that helps us endure these times:

You are never alone.
Since Jesus knows our weakness and faced temptation like we do, we can approach Him confidently that He will walk with us through our struggles and He will give us mercy and grace when we need it most.

Not only do we have the presence of Jesus to help us in these times, we also have the physical presence of the church to walk through these hard times with us.
How do we put childish things away and accept the fact that the only way out is through?

-Desire restoration
-Admit our failures to those who love us
-Trust that whatever consequences come our way are leading to maturity
