Learn through the PROCESS

Because through the process, the Lord is with us. Though the process, in our ups and down, the Lord is with us. Through the process, on our bumpy road, the Lord is with us!

His promise is true!

His promise is perfect!

His promise is sovereign!

His promise is irrevocable!

Whomever are Christians here believes that we are Victorious in Jesus. In fact that is true. We believe because of our faith.

Our life our secured. We are set apart. We are justified. We are glorified. This is the promise the Lord our God had bestowed upon to those who believes in His Son Jesus Christ and are saved, that’s John 3:16 had emphasized.

However, the promise of Victory is the end result. The Bible does not tells us that we will have a smooth sailing life while we are still here on earth.

The promise in Jeremiah 29:11 of plan to prosper us and not to harm us is true and for our own good sake, but it does not constitute that everything will be straight and easy for us.

How about in times of we look forward to victories and triumphs in our life but it doesn’t happen the way we want it to be? Perhaps, we have disappointments. Anger. Hatred. Sadness. It will start to move down. Temporarily, you will stun and ask yourself, why? What happened?

That’s normal. We are still human.

Don’t fret. The promise is still powerful! We are still victorious and triumphants through Christ Jesus!

But how are we able to avoid these disappointments, anger, hatred, sadness if it doesn’t go on the way we want it to be? And this what the Lord had revealed to me … ENJOY THE PROCESS, LEARN THROUGH THE PROCESS!

His message for 2019

Because through the process, the Lord is with us. Though the process, in our ups and down, the Lord is with us. Through the process, on our bumpy road, the Lord is with us!

His promise is true!

His promise is perfect!

His promise is sovereign!

His promise is irrevocable!

Because what the Scripture says that

Deutorony 31:8

“It is the Lord who goes before you. He will be with you; he will not leave you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed.”

Deuteronomy 31:6

Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the Lord your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you.”

Joshua 1:9

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”

Isaiah 41:10-13

Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. Behold, all who are incensed against you shall be put to shame and confounded; those who strive against you shall be as nothing and shall perish. You shall seek those who contend with you, but you shall not find them; those who war against you shall be as nothing at all. For I, the Lordyour God, hold your right hand; it is I who say to you, “Fear not, I am the one who helps you.”

So therefore, during the process let us enjoy it. During the process let us learn through it because He is IMMANUEL even through the PROCESS!!!

Glory to God.
