1) “When peace like a river attendeth my way, when sorrows like sea billows roll, whatever my lot Thou has taught me to say, it is well, it is well with my soul.” I can gladly say, when the doctor told me I had cancer this week, God’s wonderful peace never budged. I believe the Word of God, I have given 40 years of ministry to it. Whatever you are facing, I hope you are experiencing the peace God provides!
2) Don’t allow what happened in the past to cause you to doubt God’s Word. We see through a dark glass, we don’t understand the end and the beginning like He does. If His Word says it, believe it, especially when you can’t explain it. The day will come when every thing you don’t understand will make sense, until then walk in faith!
3) Everyone experiences trouble, God does not punish bad people and give only good to good people. Life is a result of many decisions, some that bring positive and some that brings bad but everyone experiences both. The believer gets to experience them with God’s grace if he chooses to believe His word, don’t forfeit the benefit of living in peace!
4) You may have a reason you have slipped in your faith, you might be justified in your anger and unforgiveness but is losing your passion for Jesus and obeying His Word worth giving up His blessings? Carrying baggage gets heavier and more difficult the longer you hold on. Drop your reasons and come back trusting and obeying God’s commands. We need you in the church house!
