'You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you. Trust in the Lord for ever, for the Lord , the Lord himself, is the Rock eternal. He humbles those who dwell on high, he lays the lofty city low; he levels it to the ground and casts it down to the dust. ' Isaiah 26:3-5 NIVUK
Nothing but the blood of Jesus Can wash me as white as snow Nothing but the blood of Jesus Can open the prison to those who are bound Yes the blood of Jesus Has healed my broken heart He is worthy of all my praise He is my Master and Friend
Grace and peace to you from God our Father and Saviour Jesus Christ. Happy Friday and it is the last day of March, time flies and it waits for no man.
I thank God for the Month of March I thank God for the last three months I thank God that makes a way that no man Has seen or fathom. Let us praise the Name of the Lord our God Is it wonderful to know that all things that are good are from the LORD It is in Christ Jesus that we are made new What a wonderful God we serve That in midst of suffering He comforts us
As I continue with Paul on 2 Corinthians chapter One, I wonder and marvel at our God.
Verse six: … if we are afflicted, it is for your consolation and salvation.
God bought consolation and salvation through Paul’s suffering to others .
How could God bring consolation and salvation through suffering?
My soul let us take a walk… We walk with God, so we can see His Marvellous work His ways are not are ways Remember, The world we live in, has webs everywhere Covered with suffering and broken It is in need for repair
Who better than to console others suffering than someone who has been through it and come out the other end….
Suffering is the proper tool to help in the world of despair The fracture can be mended by God Through the love of His people to others When we suffer… We must never isolate ourselves Let the peace of God wash over us through His words And His people and pray at all times In our daily lives, tribulations will come But be of good cheer and take heart For our Lord Jesus has overcome the world
Then I started to look at the whole suffering..
The ancient Greek word for suffering (thlipsis). Thlipsis describes that kind of “pressing.”
Pressing you to a corner: The Lord is my Rock The Lord is the one that I rely on The Lord is the Rock that I lean on When I am pressed into the corner Then I know my God is for me and not against me Who shall I fear Who shall I run to Except our God and Saviour Jesus Christ who knew no sin Yet began sin for us and moved us through the suffering He made a way where there is no way
The journey continues…
We must Endure: the ancient Greek word of hupomone
Looking at the meaning of Endure: It not passive and it is not in vain It is an elastic pulled yet not broken It is durable and last over time It remains in existence It is a spirit of a marathon runner It triumphs over pain and suffering to achieve a goal So, my dear let us endure for Christ did. Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, The Father of mercies and God of all comfort Who comforts us in all tribulation, That we may be able to comfort those who are in trouble, With the comfort with which we are ourselves are comforted by God Lord, I surrender to Your will Teach me and I will teach others In the Name of Jesus Christ Amen
