LIFE LESSONS FROM THE BOOK OF 2 COR 5:7 (NLT)
"For we live by believing and not by seeing."
1.Never , ever , be moved by what you see , that temporary discomfort; You are broke for now; people laughing at you ; other people's opinion of you.Never! YOUR STRENGHT IS THEIR OWN WEAKNESS ; YOUR WEAKNESS IS THEIR OWN STRENGHT . "SO THEY HAVE WEAKNESSES TOO" Note.
2. Faith sees the end .Heb 12:2 (Amp)" Looking away [from all that will distract] to Jesus, Who is the Leader and the Source of our faith [giving the first incentive for our belief] and is also its Finisher [bringing it to maturity and perfection]. He, for the joy [of obtaining the prize] that was set before Him, endured the cross, despising and ignoring the shame, and is now seated at the right hand of the throne of God." Despise that shame; Is only a cheap trick of the enemy to discourage you .
3. Faith rejoices because of the reward .Hmm, I like this . "Reward" . see how scripture puts it in the book of Psalm 58:11 " Men will say, Surely there is a reward for the [ uncompromisingly ] righteous; surely there is a God Who judges on the earth." Pls . I will encourage you to meditate well on this verse of scripture again. so you can see what am seeing! If you would not compromise by giving up , you will win and again God is the judge of this earth and He is your "FATHER"? . Do I hear some screaming "lol"
4. Faith is persistent . Keep knocking , your door is about to open in the name of Jesus,Amen. See scripture in the book of Luke 18:6-8 (NLT)"Then the Lord said, “Learn a lesson from this unjust judge. Even he rendered a just decision in the end. So don’t you think God will surely give justice to his chosen people who cry out to him day and night? Will he keep putting them off? I tell you, he will grant justice to them quickly! But when the Son of Man returns, how many will he find on the earth who have faith?”
5. Faith moves God. Matt 9:28-29 (NLT )"They went right into the house where he was staying, and Jesus asked them, “Do you believe I can make you see?”
“Yes, Lord,” they told him, “we do.”
Then he touched their eyes and said, “Because of your faith, it will happen.”
I PRAY FOR YOU ; MAY YOUR FAITH ,MOVE THE HAND OF GOD TO DO THE IMPOSSIBLE FOR YOU THIS WEEK IN JESUS NAME ,AMEN.
YOUR ARE BLESSED ! KEEP THE JOY IN YOU FLOWING ! AMEN. Hmmm!
