PROBLEMS' POSITIVE POWER!
Every problem you encounter will change you!
Problems make you tender or tougher - you choose!
They can also make you bitter or better - it's up to you!
With God, you'll come out bigger and better - this is true!
We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance. And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation. And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love.
So be truly glad. There is wonderful joy ahead, even though you have to endure many trials for a little while. These trials will show that your faith is genuine. It is being tested as fire tests and purifies gold—though your faith is far more precious than mere gold. So when your faith remains strong through many trials, it will bring you much praise and glory and honor on the day when Jesus Christ is revealed to the whole world. You love him even though you have never seen him. Though you do not see him now, you trust him; and you rejoice with a glorious, inexpressible joy. The reward for trusting him will be the salvation of your souls.
The Lord says, “I will rescue those who love me. I will protect those who trust in my name. When they call on me, I will answer; I will be with them in trouble. I will rescue and honor them. I will reward them with a long life and give them my salvation.”
But now, O Jacob, listen to the Lord who created you. O Israel, the one who formed you says, “Do not be afraid, for I have ransomed you.
I have called you by name; you are mine. When you go through deep waters, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty,
you will not drown. When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you. For I am the Lord, your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior. I gave Egypt as a ransom for your freedom; I gave Ethiopia and Seba in your place.
Others were given in exchange for you. I traded their lives for yours because you are precious to me.You are honored, and I love you.
As burglars are not that stupid to burgle vacant apartments, so devils scarcely meddle with ordinary destinies! Because you are God's special, chosen and anointed vessel of honour. Don't you ever forget that!" Remember that stars shine brightest in pitch darkness and the rainbow usually appears after the storm. Your storm is over, you're a star to the glory of God!
Have a blessed day. Attend good, lively and powerful Church services this week. Expect uncommon divine intervention on you in Jesus' name!
