Overcome

Why did I not die at birth, Come forth from the womb and expire? Job 3:11

These words that Job have spoken may seem harsh but I’m sure it’s a sorrowful emotion we may have felt at some time in our lives. Job was suffering a great loss of his family and Satan was continuing to test him. At this point Job was at his lowest point, he felt why should he have even been born.

But one thing is Job never cursed or blamed God, Job said God gives and he takes away (Job 1:21) Even though his wife told him to just curse God and die (Job 2:9), Job would not tempt The Lord. Jobs friends went on to blame Job, saying he must of sinned to cause this great sorrow in his life.

But the truth was Job was being tested by Satan and not God. Many times when tragedies happen in our lives we blame God. But its usually Satan testing us or our own sin that causes hardship for ourselves.

The Good news is eventually God repaid Job back twice from what he lost because he preserved to the end (Job 42:10) That’s why our faith is so important. During life we will encounter seasons of depression or great losses. The important thing is we remain faithful as God does have a plan for all our lives.

We can overcome as we turn to Jesus for hope and strength who has already overcome the world.God has a plan for your life and we can do all things through Christ who gives us strength in Jesus Name Amen

Present Suffering

I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us. Romans 8:18

How can we remain at peace during our present suffering? As Christians we need to be realistic that there is going to be trials and suffering during life. Jesus told us we will encounter trouble, trials, and even tribulation, however he ended by saying take Heart I have overcome the world (John 16:33)

See even when we are suffering we can have the peace of God knowing that we are already victorious. Not matter what Satan is trying to do to us, Jesus have already overcome. There is nothing impossible for God, and we need to remember not to let a trial derail our faith.

The next part is our current suffering can’t compare to the glory of God that is ahead of us. Jesus told us there will be a day of no more tears, no more suffering, no more death for the former things have passed away (Revelation 21:4)  So don’t allow your current suffering or trials defeat you because Jesus has already defeated death and sin

God teaches us to be content in all circumstances (Philippians 4:12) When we have strong faith we don’t have a wavering attitude. It’s easy to be joyful when everything is going good but it’s how you respond to suffering and trials that truly displays your faith. So whatever you’re going through today, tell Satan my present suffering can’t compare to the glory of God in my future in Jesus Name Amen

Gods Glory Greater than Our Suffering

I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us. For the creation waits in eager expectation for the children of God to be revealed. Romans 8:18-19

The world tell us to “Live like theres no tomorrow” but we know as Children of God there is a tomorrow and eternity.  Until God restores his kingdom there will be pain and suffering, but knowing this we must press on and endure the trials till that glorious day

For the creation was subjected to frustration, not by its own choice, but by the will of the one who subjected it, in hope that the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the freedom and glory of the children of God.  Romans 20-21

We are all cursed by the Sin of Adam, death was not God’s will but it was Mans will passed down by his ancestors. But those who declare themselves Children of God have been redeemed thru our Lord Jesus Christ.

We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time. Not only so, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for our adoption to sonship, the redemption of our bodies. Romans 22-23

Children of God are eagerly awaiting the return of Jesus to restore Gods Kingdom and eliminate evil and suffering.  As compared to a women in labor, the present time is long and painful, but the reward will be great in the end.

For in this hope we were saved. But hope that is seen is no hope at all. Who hopes for what they already have? But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently. Romans 24-25

All our hope is in Jesus Christ, for without him there is no life or hope. Patience is a virtue, for Gods timing is not our timing. We must wait for him, for our ways are not his ways.

In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans.  And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for God’s people in accordance with the will of God.  Romans 26-27

This is why God has giving us the gift of the Holy Spirit, as a teacher and guide. To give us the strength and wisdom to endure hardship. Pray to God to give you the Holy Spirit to endure you through these times of labor in Jesus Name Amen
