Whatever happens in the believer in Christ’s life is for a purpose that is ultimately for God’s glory. Do you agree?
I have countless testimonies of this and I often wonder how my life would have turned out if I did not have Christ when I have thought “wow… life is so hard even when I am living a Christ centred life!”
May we be thankful daily that God works all things out for the good of those who love Him. Those who are actually foreknown or predestined by Him to be conformed to the image of Christ. It is worth remembering also that He does not always take us out of adverse situations, but He walks through them with us.This is how He is with us as a heavenly Father, if He were to do everything for us, immediately take us out of every perilous situation then we would never learn a thing!
May we see every crisis as an opportunity to get closer to God through Christ and allow Him to teach us more about the principals of the Kingdom of God and how to be bold and overcome in difficult times while resting in Him.
I gave thanks and praise to God for He sent Jesus as the Word made flesh, for us to have a tangible example as to how to live our lives according to His will.
Jesus is the Word of Truth through whom we gain knowledge of the truth about who God is and who we are predestined to be as children of God.
Are you a disciple of Jesus? If so then you can partake of divine revelation in regards to God’s truth to overcome every lie about who you are and the world because abiding in Him results in revelation knowledge directly communicated to us by Father God and obtained through meditation on scriptures,
May we continue to abide in the Word, be students of the bible so as to know the truth and be set free from curses and deception in Jesus’ mighty name Amen!
“Then he [Jesus] called his twelve disciples together, and gave them power and authority over all devils, and to cure diseases. Then he sent them to preach the kingdom of God, and to heal the sick.” (Luke 9:1-2)
“And he [Jesus] said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven. Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.” (Luke 10:18-19)
Hi there, God has given born again believers the strength we need to overcome every affliction.
Firstly we are His and therefore He is our protector and sustainer and secondly because we have the indwelling Holy Spirit, who is God himself strengthening us by His power, so that we can bear every affliction until it is over.
Think of the wisdom we acquire as we stay close to God during our times of affliction. God says He will never leave us nor forsake us. Have a blessed day Deborah x
Brethren let us always remember that we reap what we sow and while stopping to think about the consequences of our actions is not often easy or should I say automatic, it is necessary. Necessary, because it can save as so much pain or turmoil.
It will also save us unnecessary time wastage.I have had my struggles in this area and learnt from many mistakes and some of you can relate. God is faithful and knows our hearts are often in the right place, desiring to reap for Him what He has sown in and through us.
I can testify that when I have been obedient to God’s Word such as forgiven and prayed for those who hurt or afflict me and put others first I have reaped natural and spiritual blessings.I can also testify that He has come through for me many times and outworked all things for my good (Romans 8:38), when things could have gone from bad to worse. Think about your past and present state, what can you testify about the goodness of God especially when you have sown what pleases Him?
I agree that we don’t always know what blessings are rewards for what we have done, but sometimes we can discern outcomes that are tied to our acts of kindness or obedience to God’s Word.
We have a God who is patient with us and will help us in our weakness when we call on Him. Praise Him!! Blessings to you & yours
