LIFE LESSONS FROM THE BOOK OF 1 PETER 4:12-13. (MSG VERSION)
" Friends when life gets really difficult , don't jump to the conclusion that God isn't on the job. Instead ,be glad that you are in the very thick of what Christ experienced. This is a spiritual refining process , with glory just around the corner."
1. God is working on your case , even if you cant see physical changes .Trust Him. He is always on time to deliver . For it is written in the book of Isaiah 48:3b "I did them suddenly , and they came to pass ." Your miracle will happen so suddenly it will daze you. Be confident. God never fails. see the book of Joshua 1:5b for it is written "so I will be with thee; I will not fail thee , nor forsake thee."
2.You are being refined . Scriptures say in the book of Isaiah 48:10 "Behold , I have refined thee, but not with silver ; I have chosen thee in the furnace of affliction." This I can assure you , "your end will be great." why am I so sure , see what the book of 2 cor 4:17 (Amp version ) says "For our light , momentary affliction ( this slight distress of the passing hour ) is ever more and more abundantly preparing and producing and achieving for us an everlasting weight of glory [ beyond all measure , excessively surpassing all comparisons and all calculations , a vast and transcendent glory and blessedness never to cease!] Imagine what your end will be like , you have been given a "hint " .lol, glory!
3. Never be discouraged , in the kingdom of God this is a process ,you have to go through , if it is not working for your good , God won't permit it. You might not see how , but God cannot lie . It is working for your good . Roms 8:28.
4. Be glad , rejoice , celebrate now , because you know the end result . sing for joyyyy .Amen. Isaiah 54:1 says " SING, O barren ,thou that didst nor bear; break forth into singing , see verse 2" Enlarge the place of thy tent , and let them stretch forth.... ( think big , increase your faith ) now see the results in verse 3 " For thou shall break forth on the right hand and on the left;" .key- This is what happens , when you sing and not weep in the midst of your storms. Get a cd , watch a good gospel dvd , stir up your spirit and be joyful .Something is about to happen! Amen.
5. Finally , here is the good news , "hmmm" your breakthrough is just around the corner ! Now you say , Amen to that .
I PRAY FOR YOU "Hmm" YOU WILL NOT MISS YOUR BREAKTHROUGH IN JESUS NAME , AMEN. BE BLESSED!
