LIFE LESSONS FROM THE BOOK OF ROMANS 15:4
" for whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning , that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope."
1. There is hope . Never be too quick to conclude , that all is over . When God has not said it is over. The book of Genesis 1:11a will encourage you like this " And he said , who told thee that thou was naked? ."who is telling you that you won't become great ? I prophesy to you , that you will in Jesus name , amen. only believe.
2. Someone once said and I quote " Patience is bitter , but the fruit is sweet." job in scriptures , lost all he had at the beginning , but God restored to him double , all he had lost , including his children , that scriptures puts it this way " And in all the land were no women found so fair as the daughters of job:" Job 42:15a. The Lord will always pay you back beauty for your Ashes. Have hope.
3.Patience will reveal to you , your hidden enemies , pretending to be true friends and protégé.
4. Patience is what God uses to prepare us for our assignment . God prepared Moses in the wilderness for 40 years . Joseph 13 years. see scriptures " And Joseph was thirty years old when he stood before Pharoah king of Egypt." Gen 41:46. He had the dream at the age of seventeen. Let Him prepare you; it comes with a lot of pain and discouragement though "lol" but the rewards "hmm" is sweet.
5.Patience will reveal to you some deep truths that will cause you pain and at times discourage you , but the reason ,why God allows you to see this hidden truths , is for you to avoid making costly mistakes in future. Is like taking the devil to be your wife /best friend , without knowing it. hmm, Is good to be patient !
6. But finally, the good news from the book of Hebrews 6:15 " And so after he had patiently endured , he obtained the promise."
I PRAY FOR YOU , MAY THE LORD GIVE YOU THE GRACE TO BE PATIENT , SO AS NOT TO MISS IT IN LIFE IN JESUS NAME , AMEN. BE BLESSED.
