Four Ways to Endure Through Suffering
Enter into the situation, desert, wilderness, 40 Days- with Humility
- Develop Humilty
- Is it me?
- Realize your state of destitude (we are owed nothing, everything is a blessing)
- "It is doubtful whether God can bless a man greatly until He has hurt him deeply" A.W. Tozer
- Humilty is a posture of the heart under God's covering, submitted completely
- 1 Peter 1:10-12
- Ps 119:50
- 2 Corinthians 1:1-7
- Have the Proper Attitude and mindset
- 1 Peter 1:13
- "Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it." Charles Swindoll
- Hope is the result of placing your faith in what cannot be seen
- Know His grace is sufficient for you
- 2 Corinthians 12:9
- God doesnt give hypothetical grace for our hypothetical situation. He gives us exactly the measure needed in order to fulfil our calling and mandate in our times of refinement; not too much that we become prideful of ourselves, not too little that we are left begging - Ps 37:25
- Put on the garmet of Praise
- Isaiah 61:3
- Give thanks for every thing perceived to be harmful- break the heavines lift off the demonic
- Matthew 14:13-21
Why do we give up...
- Our perspective is often limited
- Our progress isn't always obvious
- God often does something in you before He does something for you
- Joshua being led by God to Jericho - Joshua 6:1-5
- Reward; Hebrews 10:35-37
Trials; withstanding the pressure: Matthew 7:24-27
- Is your covering secure?
- Are those under you secure?
- Is your day-to-day life structurally sound?
Ps 124 - Freedom and breakthrough
