Are things difficult for you? Nothing seems to work the way you want? Or you are passing through one pain, sorrow or tribulation, and so, maybe, in your innermost mind, God is a mean God, or maybe he does not even exists. No, not so. Listen to what the Lord is saying…
“My son, pay attention when the Lord corrects you, and do not be discouraged when he rebukes you because the Lord corrects everyone, he loves and punishes everyone, he accepts you as a son/daughter.
GAINS DISGUISES IN PAINS
Endure what you suffer as being a father’s punishment for disobedience or training; your suffering shows that God is either fixing you or He is allows the devil to treat you as a result of your disobedience. Was there ever a son who was not punished by his father? If you are not punished like other sons, it means you are not a real sons/daughters, but a spiritual bastards.” Heb 12: 5 – 8.
“I rebuke and punish all whom I love”. Says Jesus Christ. Rev. 3: 19.
If you are being tempted and put through trials as a child of God, then, “Consider yourself fortunate; for you know that when your faith succeeds in facing such trials, the result is; ability to endure, a reward on earth and in heaven. Make sure that your endurance carries you all the way without failing, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing…
Happy is the person who remains faithful under trials, because when he succeeds in passing such test, he will receive as his reward the life which God has promised to those who love him.” James 1: 2 -4, 12.
Be humble, strong and of good courage, for I know that God the Father will do exceedingly more than your heart desires and will solve your problems through Christ Jesus. Amen.
If you have not given your life to Christ, please say after me; Lord Jesus, i receive you as my Lord and personal Savior, i believe you died for me and was resurrected the third day; wash me with your blood and make me justified again. Now i am save and am born again.
Congratulations! Please identify with a bible believing church and duplicate the works of Christ. Thank you.
