The Godly Are Bettered By

WE ARE PURIFIED

Through Him we also have access by faith into this [remarkable state of] grace in which we [firmly and safely and securely] stand. Let us rejoice in our hope and the confident assurance of [experiencing and enjoying] the glory of [our great] God [the manifestation of His excellence and power]. And not only this, but [with joy] let us exult in our sufferings and rejoice in our hardships, knowing that hardship (distress, pressure, trouble) produces patient endurance; and endurance, proven character (spiritual maturity); and proven character, hope and confident assurance [of eternal salvation]. Romans 5:2-4 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

It is in the hard times we learn the most and mature the most as we are guided by the Holy Spirit. We do not become bitter and self pitying like those in the world. Rather, we rejoice in them afterwards because we can see Jehovahs strong, secure hand leading us through them.

It is in our sufferings that Jehovah reveals the most of His love and healing which draws us ever closer to Him which is the only way for that to occur. We do not pout and play the blame game like those in the world because we understand that it occurred for our betterment.

Each of these brings stronger confidence in our loving Heavenly Fathers providence in every part of our lives. Because we are His children we always have access to Him and He is never too busy for us but takes an active role in our lives.

For these blessings we should continually praise Him and rejoice over Him continually every day.

When we know that the angel of death shall come a calling (and I believe that Jehovah always alerts us that our time will soon be up, even though we do not know the hour or the day. This is because of what has been witnessed in the palliative care in hospitals and volunteering in seniors homes) Jehovah shall cause us to reflect back on our walk with Him and blesses us with assurance of the Heavenly home that is awaiting us.

As the wicked are hurt by the best things, so the godly are bettered by the worst.” — William Jenkyn

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Uzam (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble) for strengthening me, comforting me and encouraging me through lo the many trials, tribulations and sorrows that have come my way in my walk with You. I would never had made it without You gentle strong hand supporting me. I praise You in the name of He who strengthened the weak as He walked amongst us Jesus Christ. Amen

Wishing you a house full of sunshine, hearts full of cheer and love that grows deeper each day of the year. Welsh blessing

It Was Not a Time Delay

But because of your stubbornness and your unrepentant heart, you are storing up wrath against yourself for the day of God’s wrath, when his righteous judgment will be revealed. God “will repay each person according to what they have done.” Romans 2:5-6 New International Version

 

COMES BACK

 

There was a boy who was abused terribly by his parents. When he became a young man he moved to a city. There the Lord moved him to do volunteer work in a seniors home. There he saw many seniors whose children hardly ever came to visit them, they were very lonely and sad. The young man politely rebuked the children when he saw them. They, in turn sternly rebuked him and informed him their parents were very abusive and unrepentant. Therefore, there was very bad feelings between them. The young man tried to talk with the seniors but they were cold hearted and hard hearted.

Didn’t they, because of their unrepentant hearts, get what they deserved?

The man has repeatedly attempted with no success to get his parents to reconcile and repent. They too have been cold hearted and unrepentant. Now a few decades later, the mans parents are seniors in a seniors home feeling sorry for themselves and some nurses try to get the man to visit his parents. Now it is his turn to gracefully inform the nurses of the family situation. Reflecting back, the man see’s Gods justice works on His time not ours. It was a not a time delay, it was on Gods time.

It is sad to see but it is also just.

These are the things God has revealed to us by his Spirit. The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God. 1 Corinthians 2:10 New International Version.

My question to you is this: is there are relationship in which you need to reconcile but are too proud to?

If so, are you looking forward to experiencing the same rewards of those mentioned (because that is exactly what will happen to you)?

Prayer: Please Jehovah Ropheka (God our healer) please bless me with the wisdom, grace and meekness to reconcile with ___________  (write in the name of someone you have done wrong to and have refused to apologize to or of someone who has done you wrong that you refuse to forgive). Please bless us with Your healing love in this relationship because I know that just as through Your son You have healed our relationship so too do You desire for my earthly relationship to be healed.  I ask this in the name of He whose sacrifice on the cross healed our sacrifice Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
