Glory be to God in the highest Amen! Glory be to God in the highest Amen! For His mercies enduerth forever Amen! For His mercies enduerth forever Amen! // Who is like unto Thee O! Lord! Who is like unto Thee O! Lord! Among the gods Who is like Thee, You are glorious in holiness fearful in Praising doing wonders alleluia!

Our Father we thank You we bless Your Holy Name! Alleluia to the King of kings, The Ancient of Days the beginning and the End, Blessed Redeemer we worship and adore Thee! Thank You for the Great and Might things You have done, You are doing, and will continue to do for us in Jesus Name. Thank You for Your Divine Presence all over us, lead us in the good way for we give ourselves to Thee O! Lord.

Let the Praise Thee O! Lord. Let the heavens and the Skies Praise Thee! Let all His angles and all the armies of heaven Praise the O! Lord. Let the un and moon, the twinkling stars and skies above Praise Thee. Let the vapours high above the cloud Praise Thee. Let the created thing Praise Thee O Lord for You give your command and they came into being and they are in place for ever, You decree O Lord will never be revoke. (Ps143:1-6).

Beloveth, are you Praising the Lord as commanded? If the sky and the moon can Praise God what are you waiting for. Beloveth can also praise god what is stopping you for using your mouth to Praise God?

Our God is worthy of Praise, therefore Praise Him now; Praise Him in good time and bad times. Let to Praise God whatever that might come your way, be strong enough to Praise God, for Him alone deserve all our glory both now and forever.

Are you ready to go all the way for the Lord, then the teaching of today is for you. Those gnarling of the roots of an oak tree, and those strange twisting of the branches, all tell of the many storms that has passed over it.

Beloveth always remember that the suffering is for awhile, never forget  that it but a moment compared to eternity where you will regin with Christ for a thousand years, beloved is going be awesome and amazing.

But the suffering someone is asking, the Bible said is for awhile. The God will make you perfect , establish and strengthen, settle you.

This is a suffering that has an awesome reward attach to it. What can someone do during a difficult or trying times? How can you go through it and come back stronger when you started for God said He will perfect you … strengthen and settle you?

Beloveth once we understand the connections between our sufferings, our thoughts, our thoughts, our emotions and our behaviours, we are in a position to make intentional changes toward growth.

This beautiful transformation begins with first step: acknowledging our suffering. This step facilitates an amazing journey in gaining freedom and resilience.

You may be thinking, that sounds great, but how do I acknowledge my suffering? What does that look like? Acknowledging your pain just means you call it what it is. Don’t back away from using the words that best identify your experience. If it was rape, call it rape. If it is cancer, call it cancer, if it was suicide, call it suicide. If it is infertility, call it infertility, if it is an affair, call it an affair.

Acknowledge your suffering now, and acknowledge it accurately. Don’t sugarcoat it. Don’t excuse it. Don’t minimize it. Don’t exaggerate it. Be honest. Speak of the emotional impact. If you discouraged, say it. If you are sad, admit it. If you are heartbroken, acknowledged it. If you are scared, verbalize it. No, this doesn’t mean you have to rehash every graphic detail. This is not designed to be punishment. Quite the contrary.

Everyone is different, so naturally some people prefer certain methods of acknowledgment over others. Some may literally speak out loud and acknowledged their suffering in the privacy of their homes or on the top of a secluded mountain. Some may prefer to process their acknowledgement with a trusted friend, pastor, or counselor. Others may journal.

For an acknowledgment to be effective, you must speak it to yourself and speak it to God. God may or not lead you to also confidentially acknowledge your suffering to another person. If He does, the trust that He will help you and obey His urging.

Similar to when you take off a Band- Aid, you are going to feel the sting. But the sting will diminish. The grief of the acknowledgment will subside, and when it does, it will open the door for you to begin to bounce back. Once the pain is acknowledged, you will find some relief, some hope. You need this step to begin building resilience, so prepare now to take this risk.

“After that ye have suffered awhile, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you.” 1 Peter 5:10

You have seen the arch of heaven as it spans the plain: glorious are its colours, and rare its hues. It is beautiful, but, alas, it passes away, and lo, it is not. The fair colours give way to the fleecy clouds, and the sky is no longer brilliant with the tints of heaven. It is not established. How can it be? A glorious show made up of transitory sun-beams and passing rain-drops, how can it abide?

The graces of the Christian character must not resemble the rainbow in its transitory beauty, but, on the contrary, must be stablished, settled, abiding. Seek, O believer, that every good thing you have may be an abiding thing. May your character not be a writing upon the sand, but an inscription upon the rock!

May your faith be no “baseless fabric of a vision,” but may it be builded of material able to endure that awful fire which shall consume the wood, hay, and stubble of the hypocrite. May you be rooted and grounded in love. May your convictions be deep, your love real, your desires earnest. May your whole life be so settled and established, that all the blasts of hell, and all the storms of earth shall never be able to remove you.

But notice how this blessing of being “stablished in the faith” is gained. The apostle’s words point us to suffering as the means employed—”After that ye have suffered awhile.” It is of no use to hope that we shall be well rooted if no rough winds pass over us. Those old gnarlings on the root of the oak tree, and those strange twistings of the branches, all tell of the many storms that have swept over it, and they are also indicators of the depth into which the roots have forced their way.

So the Christian is made strong, and firmly rooted by all the trials and storms of life. Shrink not then from the tempestuous winds of trial, but take comfort, believing that by their rough discipline God is fulfilling this benediction to you.

Beloveth, be strong in the Lord so as to able to withstand every suffering and temptations that may come your way.

The Lord will help you and so will His Presence go before you to help you. Never think you are alone. Never, never for the Lord is always with you till the end of time. We will not fall by the waysides, we will not faultier, we will fail in Jesus Name!

Amen!!! Alleluia Praise the living Jesus!!!!!!!!!!!!! Beloveth, on this note we declare this week open and by God’s grace we will at the end acknowledge God’s faithfulness (2 Cor. 1:20-22).

Remain blessed in the Lord.
