For those of you out there that find yourself in unexplained circumstances (the Bible calls them fiery trials as though some strange things have happened to you), because I am in those strange things, I am qualified to tell you that you can make it out of them if you hold on to your faith.
In the Bible Job suffered many hardships and losses out of test and trials. Everyone around him told him to curse God and die. Let me encourage you by saying if you must curse someone, curse the accuser of the brothers and sisters as the Bible calls him.
Things happen in life in order to remove ANY faith in God that we have. The enemy assumes that he knows us well enough to know that if we pray and we don’t get answers then the answer must be that God does not care about us or that Jesus is nothing but a fake and we are misled to believe in and trust in him.
When Jesus went to the cross, one of the last words He uttered was that, “it is finished”. He completed the work so that we could live victoriously in this life because He showed us the way. Jesus not only showed us the way but He also prayed for us and is still praying for us so when these things come upon us, they prevail when we don’t recognize that we are the winners and that we have the ability to change things through praying in the spirit against these spiritual forces. We fail for a lack of knowledge and commitment!
Romans 8:34 | Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.
55But he, being full of the Holy Ghost, looked up stedfastly into heaven, and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing on the right hand of God,
56And said, Behold, I see the heavens opened, and the Son of man standing on the right hand of God.
59 And they stoned Stephen, calling upon God, and saying, Lord Jesus, receive my spirit.
60And he kneeled down, and cried with a loud voice, Lord, lay not this sin to their charge. And when he had said this, he fell asleep.
1These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee:
2As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him.
3And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.
4I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do.
5And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.
6I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them me; and they have kept thy word.
7Now they have known that all things whatsoever thou hast given me are of thee.
8For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came out from thee, and they have believed that thou didst send me.
9I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine.
10And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am glorified in them.
11And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are.
12While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled.
13And now come I to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves.
14I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.
15I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil.
16They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.
17Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.
18As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world.
19And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth.
20Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word;
21That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.
22And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:
23I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.
24Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.
25O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: but I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me.
26And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it: that the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them.
So you see neither Jesus nor God is out to destroy people and when you see evil recognize where the source of the evil comes from.
God loves us and He sent His Only Begotten Son, Jesus Christ, to pave the way so that we could reign as Kings and Queens in this life and as the children of The King on the other side of life.
There is power in the Blood of Jesus and in the Word of God and I plead His Blood daily over my life. Does that stop the trials? No, but it sustains me until the victory comes, If I don’t Quit!
