Transformed by Trouble

God has a purpose behind every problem. He uses circumstances to develop our character. No one is immune to pain or insulated from suffering, and no-one gets to skate through life problem free. God depends on circumstances to make us more like Jesus than he depends on us reading the bible. The reason is obvious: you face circumstances 24 hours a day.

Life is a series of problems. Every time we solve one, another is waiting to take its place. Not all are big, but all of them are significant in God’s growth plan for you. God uses those problems to draw you closer to him. Your most profound and intimate experiences will likely be in your darkest days, when your heart is broken, when you feel abandoned, when you’re out of options, whrn your pain is great, and you will turn to God alone.

It’s during suffering that we learn to pray our most heart felt, authentic, honest prayers. It’s during these difficult times that we draw closer to God than ever before. Our problems force us to look to God and depend on him to help us through. You never think about God is all you need, until god is all you’ve got. Regardless of your problems, none of them would happen without God’s permission. He uses it for our good even when Satan tries to use it for our bad.

Everything that happens to you has a spiritual significance in your life.

We will not see everything Work out perfectly here on this earth. We live in a fallen world. Only in heaven is everything done perfectly the way God intends. God is the magnificent designer behind everything. There is a master plan.

God’s plan for your life involves all that happens to you including your mistakes, your reins, and your hurts. It includes all the things we go thru in life such as illness, debt, disasters, divorce and death. Your events in your life work together in God’s plan. There is no isolated acts. God will bring out the good in your life and use it to his glory. God’s purpose is greater than our problems, pain, or even sin.

Every single problem is a character building opportunity, and the more difficult it is, the greater potential for building spiritual muscle and moral fibers. As Paul said, ” we know these troubles produce patience. And patience produce a character. ” what happens outwardly in your life isn’t as important as what happens on the inside.

Your circumstances are temporary, but your character will last forever. If we look at the world, you’ll be distressed. If you look within, you’ll be depressed. But if you lol to Christ, you’ll be at rest. Don’t give into short term thinking, stay focused on the end results.

Refuse to give up. Be patient and persistent. Character building is a slow process. If your in a trouble right now, don’t ask why me? Ask what God is wanting you to learn from It!

Just remember. There is purpose behind every problem. Pray and wait upon the Lord. He shall renew your strength.

Discover What Grace Can Do

Happy Monday Morning Everyone. Wishing you a week full of joy and happiness. I am so thankful for my many blessings that God has given me and the wonderful family and friends in my life. I am so thankful for each of you.

Today’s thoughts: Discover What Grace Can Do.

Acts 4:33
And with great power gave the apostles witness of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus: and great grace was upon them all.

Most people don’t have any idea what grace really is. We don’t understand the real power it can release in our lives. When we pray to God with all our hearts we can turn up the heat on things around us and it will give us boldness, turn up the power and we’ll go on.
Grace is so powerful that when those believes received it, the whole building will shake.
GRACE is not just some abstract, spiritual state of mind. Grace is real. It’s powerful. It provides super natural power to make things happen.

If the devils been threatening you lately, follow the example of those early Christians. Go to the Lord in prayer. Stand firm in what your praying and say ” Lord, I don’t care what the devil and his bunch has to say, I’m not going to back down. I’m going to keep on talking and living by faith- and I’m going to do it boldly, so just turn up the power”

I guarantee, if you’re sincere about it, he’ll do it. And you will begin to discover what grace is really about.
Have a blessed beautiful week. Love to all. #blessed #savedbygrace #lovinglife #health #happiness #myGodisfaithful #faithful #throughmyeyes #VICTORY

Open their Eyes to the light

Happy Sunday blessings to you. I hope that each of you have a blessed day and Happy Father’s day to all the Father’s out there. God bless you all.

Today’s thoughts: Open their Eyes to the light.

Since God doesn’t save anyone against their will, does it really do any good to pray for those who continually reject Christ? Yes it does! See all unbelievers who purposely rejects Christ think they made a decision on their own free will, which in fact they haven’t. They have been blinded by Satan. He’s blocking their perception of the truth.
So with prayer of intercession, you can interfere with the satanic forces and help take those blinders off!
We can also change circumstances with your prayers and help create situations that will bring them in contact with the Lord.
Pray in faith believing and God will answer your prayers. Don’t sit by and let the devil take your friends and loved ones without a fight. PRAY!PRAY!PRAY!

My prayers are that each one has received Christ as their personal savior and may the Lord guide you to that heavenly home awaiting for us once this life is over. Oh what a day that will be. Love you all and have a blessed day.

Hang on

Happy Saturday Morning EveryoneπŸ’–πŸ’– I hope you have a blessed day that is filled with many blessings from above and all the love, joy and happiness that your heart desires.

Today’s thoughts: Hang On

Isaiah 55:11
So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.

Did you know that the battleground for the problem you’re facing right now is in your mind ssnd on your lips? If you’ll hit the devil woth the word and cast the care of the situation over on God, you’ll win.
Let me warn you, hanging on to the word isn’t always easy. The devil knows if he doesn’t steal it from you, you will use it to enforce his defeat. So don’t be surprised if the devil sends a spirit to exalt itself against the word of God.
If your sick, he will tell you, you’re not healed or that your never gonna be healed today or ever. Or it might work for someone else but not you. Don’t listen to him. He is a liar.

Just remember this: it’s the word that does the work, not the one holding on to it. It’ll work for anyone who will put it to work. It’ll work for you just as it did for Jesus when he walked this earth.
No matter what the devil tries to tell you. Tell him It is written and the things surrounding your situation. Let the word fight it’s own fight. It will whip the devil every time.

So many times we face battles in our lives that seem insurmountable and we try to tackled it on our own because we want it done in our time. When in reality, everything is done in God’s time and it works out perfectly. We must trust in God enough to accept his terms and receive our blessings in full. Don’t try to take it upon yourself to do things your own way, you will make a mess of things and you will still have to ask for God’s help. Live close to God so he is there for you each and every step of the way. He is the one constant in your life that will never go wrong.
If you don’t know God as your savior, I beg of you to accept him before it’s too late… πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–

Know God’s will

Good morning everyone. Hoping you are having a great week. Love and prayers to all in need.
May God bless you and keep you safe.

Today’s thoughts: Know God’s will.

We are living in a monumental time of decisions and changes. If there ever was a day that need to know God and his will it is most definitely today. God is preparing the world and ourselves for the end of time and you better be ready because it’s coming. How do we prepare for that? Through prayer and God’s grace.

We need to accept God’s word and pray for wisdom and understanding that we need in this critical times we live in. You can find it in his word in Colossians 1:9-11
9. For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that he might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding;
10. That he might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God;
11. Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and long suffering with joyfulness;

Now that is some powerful words. We must put into action the power of prayer and not only when it is convenient but daily and from the heart. This is where mist failure comes in Christian endeavours. We get a glimpse of our lives in the spirit, but then we mess things up by trying to carry it out in the flesh.

Don’t make that mistake in the days ahead. Instead, pray that God will help you achieve your goals and dreams in his will and not our own selfish reasons. When you build on the rock, you have a lasting foundation.

Take a moment out of your day to help someone in need. We have fallen away from this practice so many times and we get caught up in our own selfish ways. Be Christ like, help others, then you will see God’s blessings on your life in abundance.

Trust God to Deliver you.

Happy Tuesday morning beautiful family and friends. I hope you have a blessed day and may God bless you all.

Today’s thoughts: Trust him to Deliver you.

Psalms 91: 7-11

7. A thousand shall fall at the side, and ten thousand at the right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.
8. Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.
9. Because thou hast made the Lord, which is my refuge, even the Most High, thy habitation;
10. There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.
11. For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all the ways.

Today’s world is filled with many terrifying acts of destruction. A world that staggers from one disaster to the next. Earthquakes, floods, war, diseases, and crime are sweeping through our cities. But in the midst of it all, God is promising to be a refuge and a fortress to those who will trust and dwell in him.
No evil will befall you, oh my what a statement. You need to catch hold of it and believe it today. Believe that God wants to be God in your life. He wants to be your protection, your security. He wants to be the first name you call upon when troubles come your way. He wants to be the one you trust in and look to, to keep you safe. And if you do this, he will never let you down.
God can handle all the dangers that surround you. He proved it with the three Hebrew boys when they were thrown into the fiery furnace that was so hot that the men who threw them in were killed by the heat. So no matter how terrifying things seems to be around you, trust in God. He will always be faithful. He will never be out done by anyone or anything. He will be right there to Deliver you from any problem, any catastrophe, any kind of devastation. No other can deliver like He can!

Happy Monday Everyone. I hope you had an awesome day and may God bless you all throughout this week.

Today’s thoughts: Restoring Broken Fellowship.

Life is all about learning how to love, God wants us to value our relationships and make an effort to maintain them instead of discarding them whenever there is a gift, a hurt, or a conflict. Although not all relationships can be saved but we must give it our all.
If you want God’s blessing on your life and you want to be known as a child of God, you must learn to be a peacemaker. ” blessed are those who work for peace” those who actively seek to resolve conflict. Peacemakers are rare because peacemaking is hard work.
Peacemaking is not avoiding conflict. Running from the problem, pretending it doesn’t exist, or being afraid to talk about it is actually cowardice.
Peacemaking is also not appeasement. Always giving in, acting like a doormat, and allowing others to always run over you is not what God had in mind. He refused to back down on many issues, standing his ground in the face of evil opposition.

Steps on How to restore a relationship:

1. Talk to God before talking to the person. Discuss it with God first. If you pray about the conflict first , you will often discover that ither God changes your heart or he changes the other person without your help. No one can meet all of your needs except God.

2. Always take the initiative. It doesn’t matter if your the offender or the offended. God expects you to make the first move. Don’t wait for the other party. Go to them first. Don’t procrastinate, make excuses, or promise I’ll get around to it someday. Schedule a face to face meeting as soon as possible. Delay only deepens resentment and makes matters worse.

3. Sympathize with their feelings. Use your ears more than your mouth. Pay close attention, focus on their feelings, not the facts. Begin with sympathy, not solutions. Patience comes from wisdom, and wisdom comes from hearing the perspective of others. People don’t care what we know until they know we care.

4. Confess your part of the conflict. If your serious about restoring a relationship, you should begin with admitting your own mistakes or sin. Confession is a powerful tool for reconciliation. When we begin by humbly admitting your mistakes, it refuses the other persons anger and disarm their attack because they were probably expecting you to be defensive. Don’t make excuses or shift blame; just honestly own up to any part you have played in the conflict. Accept responsibility and ask for forgiveness.

5. Attack the problem, not the person. A soft answer is always better than a sarcastic one. How you say it is an important as what you say. Nagging never works. You are never persuasive when you’re abrasive.

6. Cooperate as much as possible. Do everything possible on your part to live in peace with everybody. Peace always has a price tag, sometimes it costs us our pride, it often costs our self-centeredness. Do Your Best to compromise, adjust to others, and show preference to what they need.

7. Emphasize reconciliation, not resolution. When we focus on reconciliation, the problem loses significance and often becomes irrelevant. We can reestablish a relationship even when we are unable to resolve our differences. We can disagree without being disagreeable. God expects unity, not uniformity, and we can walk arm in arm without seeing eye to eye on every issue.

These 7 steps are simple, but they are not easy. It takes a lot of effort to restore a relationship.
