SEASON OF SUFFERING…

  
God always has a plan for us,  but there are steps we must go through to reach our expected end. One of the hardest things to do when you are going through a season of suffering is be silent about it. 

  God promises His grace to bring us 4 things after suffering and we should take comfort in THESE. 

  1. Be restored – receiving more in every aspect of your life esp the things you felt was lost during suffering 
  2. Be confirmed – knowing more than ever who you are in Christ and being confident in Him who was with you. 
  3. Be strengthened – being sure that His strength is made perfect through our weaknesses (trials and sufferings) and gaining supernatural confidence that you can do all things through Christ. 
  4. Be established – firmly rooted and grounded in the Lord and Saviour and becoming more like Him daily. 

In 1 Peter 5:8 , the Word of God tell us to be sober (self-controlled) and vigilant ( watchful) because the devil is looking for someone to overtake. In verse 9 it states for us to be steadfast in our faith while resisting the devil because the same sufferings we have, so do our brothers and sisters in Christ. This lets us know we are not alone and we will suffer just resisting attacks! But greater is He that is in us!

  
 Prayer is key during these moments. Go straight to God through our advocate, Jesus Christ. Allow the Holy Spirit to comfort and guide you, so you can overcome. It’s not about getting through, but learning while you are going through

Whatever you are going through , Be still and know that He is God and has it all under control. Be encouraged, it’s only for a moment….

    Be Fearless…

    As I lay here, consumed with many thoughts, I try to understand why am I struggling with sleep tonight. There are so many changes going on currently, I can’t even keep track of what I should be concerned with. But one thing I am sure of…CHANGE WILL HAPPEN!…I have realized tonight (that deep in the heart revelation) God’s plan is elaborate, yet deliberate!
    Yes, a lot of changes are taking place. Relationships are shifting. Roles are being defined differently. Spirituality is being heightened! All to prepare the body of Christ to minister to this lost world.
    I courageously accept with faith, my future in Christ. Who I am in Him is secure.
    We may not know what will happen daily when we wake up, but the important thing is, He graciously allows us TO wake up. For that I am grateful!
    I will deliberately go to sleep with confidence, and be prepared to start my day unafraid of what He has planned for my future.
    To know Him is to Trust In Him…stop being concerned with what is to come and exist for His glory!!!
    Be strong,daring,FEARLESS….
