LEARNING OBEDIENCE THROUGH SUFFERING

Good Morning and Win Forever in Jesus Christ’s name – Amen! Obeying God at first may seem hard until we come to realise that all He is asking for is for our own good – to make life free and full. As Christians, our obedience to God's Word is the only proof of our faith in Him. As Prophet T.B. Joshua noted, if we who are children of God cannot commit our bodies to God when we are sick, what would be the essence of our faith? If we as children of God cannot commit our businesses to God, in both good and hard times, what would be the evidence of our faith? 

Brethren in Christ, our situation is not like others’. For the people of the world, their situation may be to destroy them but ours is for the glory of God. Who knows what would have happened if your prayers for a better condition had been answered? People of God, hope you know that our situation is an opportunity to honour God before men? The people of the world are waiting to see how you handle your situation.

In the Book of Hebrews 5:8, the Bible says about our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, that though He is the Son of the Living God, He learnt obedience through the things He suffered and therefore was made perfect. Brethren in Christ, if the King of Kings, our Saviour Jesus Christ, could go through trials and temptations and learn obedience from them, how much more would be expected of us, His followers? Children of God, what is your situation? Is it poverty, hardship, sickness, limitation, stagnation? Remember that God is using it to preserve you for redemption, to prepare you for that great future. 

In conclusion, people of God, don't ever let your situation make you doubt God's ability to put you over; always trust His will and promises for your life. 

SAY THIS PRAYER: Lord Jesus Christ, help me to continue to trust and obey You, even in the face of overwhelmingly negative sense evidence.
