Life is hard work

Grace is available but if God planned for all to just have everything without doing anything, He would be unjust....
That means that He will just take the people who claim that they love and believe in Him and put them in a separate country ...where all that they need to do is just wake up and have everything without doing nothing.
Life is hard work.
It's not for the weak minded. It's not for the faint hearted .Being a born again Christian does not exclude us from the common challenges that come to man. God expects us to stand up and face them like men! Like supernatural men! people who carry something extra!
I read through the scripture in Isaiah
When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you. (Isaiah 43:2 ESV)
We love to quote this scripture, maybe if we actually read through carefully, we can understand that the provision of God is that of sustainence through these difficult situations.
Waters mean it's a huge depth and large volume.its big enough top physically drown you. God didn't say that you will bypass the water , neither did He say that a boat will carry you sisters....when you PASS THROUGH....YOU WILL ACTUALLY PASS , BUT IT'S THROUGH not when you sink in....
When you WALK THROUGH THE FIRE...walking in fire means that the heat and the flames are there...or else it won't be a fire! See that again, it's THROUGH!!!!! It will be very hot.
God has told us in these scriptures that He knew that these things are designed to destroy, but for is the power to destroy has been taken off of them....it's like putting a lion in a zoo after the sharp strong teeth have been removed, it's roaring , but it's pangs are gone.
You can't afford to be feeble...NOW, DON'T PANIC
What exactly would make God say something repeatedly?
Why does He lay emphasis on a particular thing again and again.
“Moses my servant is dead. Get ready! Cross the Jordan River! Lead these people into the land which I am ready to hand over to them. No one will be able to resist you all the days of your life. As I was with Moses, so I will be with you. I will not abandon you or leave you alone. Be strong and brave! You must lead these people in the conquest of this land that I solemnly promised their ancestors I would hand over to them. Make sure you are very strong and brave! Carefully obey all the law my servant Moses charged you to keep! Do not swerve from it to the right or to the left, so that you may be successful in all you do. This law scroll must not leave your lips! You must memorize it day and night so you can carefully obey all that is written in it. Then you will prosper and be successful. I repeat, be strong and brave! Don’t be afraid and don’t panic, for I, the Lord your God, am with you in all you do.” (Joshua 1:2, 5-9 NET)
God says
Be strong and brave
Be strong and brave
Don't be afraid, Don't panic!
I was wondering what God saw or planned..... This is my conclusion...
Strong....that means something will challenge your strength
Be brave.....that means that something will questions your boldness and your reserve
Don't be afraid...that means something will try and make your knees go weak with fear.
Don't panic....that means that something will hope to get you running helter-skelter in confusion.
This day,
We need to remember these.....
The pangs are already taken care of
There is no running away from what is ahead.
We know the result before the exams....God says we are going through. That means the minute we started was the minute the end became nearer.
Whilst you are going through , DONT PANIC, BE BRAVE,
The only thing standing between you and your testimony is you agreeing that YOU REALLY DONT HAVE ANYTHING TO LOSE... God has got your back and your front, even your sides....
At least, God said it repeatedly, just to get your attention.....He knows that the situation will look scary, yet, He says ....DONT GET SCARED......breathe in and out and say it slowly.......ITS GOING TO BE ALRIGHT....I have God working in me and brining me out of this seemingly scary situation. I don't fret and I don't panic, Halleluyah.
I forge ahead, I get results, I refuse to be a weakling.
