Over the years imagine that there were some trying times. And there will be more because of who you are, people of God with purpose. We have an expected end,
God has given you a unique vision for such a time as this in this place for people not yet born!!!
Must begin to thinking like who you really are, a winner! With purpose..
You will produce what you are continually seeing in your mind..See it before you see it
TEXT: James 1:2-3 My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations;
3 Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience.
1. Trials are inevitable…….(Praise is a weapon)
2. Trials are unpredictable…(whenever you face trials)
Romans 8:35-37 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?36 As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
2 Corinthians 4:8-9 (KJV)8 We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair;9 Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed;
IT’S NOT GOING TO LOOK BETTER IT’S JUST GOING TO GET BETTER.
Trials are purposeful:… 1 Peter 4:12-13 Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you:13 But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.
God will come to you and cover you:
Acceptance of what has happen is the first step to overcoming obstacles..
Get a can do attitude in your mind…..you will produce what you are continually seeing in your mind..
A positive may not solve all your problems but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort!!!!
Refuse the roke of the victim….1 john 4:4
