Pain and Suffering

“3 Not only so, but we[a] also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.” Romans 5:3-5 (NIV)

The last few days I have seen and received so many requests for prayers for issues that are critical-life threatening even. Please don’t ever forget that God is able. He uses the issues of this life to bring us closer to Him. I just know that we are running out of time as far as this ball of clay goes. He is preparing his bride for their bridegroom. He is putting His people through a spiritual spa right now. Those calluses are being rubbed off. We are experiencing the spiritual deep tissue massage that will prepare us for that marriage supper with the Lamb. We have much work to do my brothers and sisters in Christ, and nothing prepares us for the Battles of life than being put through the fire. You do know that the sword goes through the process of being beaten, pounded, burnished and polished before it is ready for battle. Just call on his name. He is right there. Also, be willing to call on His name for others. Iron sharpens iron brethren. We must be there for each other as this age comes to a close…Bless your people God and bind us together as one body. “12 Though one may be overpowered,   two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.” Ecclesiastes 4:12 (NIV) AMEN!
