James 1:12, trials and tribulations

Hello everyone, thank you all for stopping by to read GOD’s words and my blog! For the word of GOD is very encouraging and loving for us all.

Many times we as Christians will go through tribulations that are coming from those unsaved people who have an evil heart. Suffering from what they do for as long as they think they can get away with what they do. Some may stop after a time, and some will take that evil with them to the grave.

The evil one has them and their souls. And wants all of GOD’s children to fall from grace as he has done before the creation of mankind. So we need to always pray and ask our GOD for strength to make it through theses tests of faith.

The devil is persistent, and because we mankind are in GOD’s image, for the devil tempted Adam and Eve in the garden of eden.

Revelation 12:7 – 12:9

7 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,

8 And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.

9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

We go through these tests of faith and pull through them so we can be stronger, give GOD praise for saving us and pulling us through. This encourages others and they will see our faith and seek after our GOD.

Many times our GOD has done things for me and all of my loved ones. I will tell of the time when there was an icy road we had to cross to get home. Our GOD spared both my husbands life and mine on that cold night a few months ago. Praise GOD now and for all of eternity long!!!!

See our car could have been totaled, we could have been in the hospital or have died. But he spared us from getting hurt in that ditch, and we did not have to pay a large bill for the car to be fixed or ge a new one. A simple tyrid and a new tire was all we needed. Praise and glory be to GOD ALMIGHTY now and for all of eternity long! 🙂

Being positive around negativity.

Picture is from this site: http://deliveranceministry.com.au/how-to-handle-court-legal-matters-per-proverbs-25/

Good day to you all. I do pray that you all are and will have a blessed day!

We all need to be and stay encouraged 24/7 by our every loving FATHER GOD. We can not even wake up to get our air to breathe each day without HIM.

Avoiding negative situations can be a test of faith. It is not easy as there are so many people who do not know the LORD, or who do but still struggle hard with being positive.

If we were to be alone or away from negative people for some time , we wou.d relax and enjoy the peace. Many of us can not do this for jobs, family , health or whatever else that may distract us from the LORD.

It takes some prayer and practice to be positive as humanly possible with the help of JESUS to lead the way. Shaking off the nonsense of the day, and just having that JESUS time to yourself in a nice quiet space. It could be in your car when you are on your breaks , or when you are the 1st one up in your busy household at your kitchen table with your Bible.

Positive words to incorporate in our thoughts and talks after reading the word and knowing scripture first and foremost are excellent. They will also have others to speak them too. Encouraging one another with compliments too.

Heaven is a good place to be, there is GOD, JESUS, the Angels and all of the good people whose name is written in the LAMBS BOOK of LIFE.

As we with a JESUS heart we can lead others to JESUS who maynot truly know what to do to get to JESUS to be saved. They must confess the LORD JESUS as savior and let HIM into thier lives.

So with giving each other praise, encouragement, and the love of JESUS with us we will plant the “seed of faith” for those around us. And for GOD to nourish the seed into a flown grown born again saved soul.

Have a blessed day, share this post with others so that they too can recieve a blessing from reading GODS word! Pass it forward in faith and prayer.

Peace!
