What? How can we, when everything is hitting us all at once?
It is possible — but through Jesus Christ only!
So, just when everything is well are we going to rejoice?
Try this song on for size this morning.
So we are really suppose to be patient in tribulations?
What about blessing those that persecute us and not cursing them?
Our flesh may even recoil at these very words.
Still our Spirit man knows it is possible.
The only true way I know is by not making it about us!
I use to have a blogsite many years ago called, “It’s All About Him”
If we truly look at what Jesus went through for us, no longer is it all about us.
We can never doubt Jesus love for us ever again.
We will know it was not about what has been done to us even in life.
We will finally get off the pity party!
“Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.” Hebrews 4:2
We are made Worthy by the blood of the Lamb.
We must look at the finished work of the Cross and the price that was paid for us!
We must ‘enter in’ but yet enter into His sufferings also.
“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.” 1 Peter 4:13
Every circumstance may not be good, but work together for good.
“And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.” Romans 8:28
“My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.” James 1:2-4
(‘Divers’ here, means ‘many and different’.)
“Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer; distributing to the necessity of saints; given to hospitality. Bless them which persecute you: bless, and curse not. Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep.” Romans 12:12-15
God bless you all!
