BE GRATEFUL IN THE DIFFICULT TIMES

Posted by andriantoangkadirjo85 on May 5, 2016

Hello everyone!! It is nice to be back again! How are you guys? Hope you’re all good and be blessed. Sorry, it’s been a very long time since my last posting and I’m never expected that I have more than 30 thousand visitors on my blog.

Well, there’s a changing in the topic of my future posting. From now on, I’m only posting about the truths according to the bible, God’s words. I’m not posting about beauty or experience or wisdom anymore.

Why? Because I myself believe the truths in the bible is extremely important. As a guidance for us to carry out our live so we are not lost in this world. Knowing the truths in the bible will make us a free person, we are not the slaves again of sins, fear, worry, greedy. We are free, peaceful man. Lord Jesus said, as long as you are continue in my words, you are my disciples indeed. And you shall know the truths and the truths shall make you free.

This time I will share the truth about “Be grateful in the difficult times”.

As believers, people who believe in Jesus Christ, who called God as Father and who made commitment to be confirmed to the image of Jesus Christ, we will be processed unto a perfect man. All problems, troubles, difficulties which is called as affliction can be used by God in this process.

In this affliction, we should uncover which part of our life that God is being worked on such as : our temperament/easily get angry, our feeling which quickly get offended, or other sins. If we aware of this truth, that affliction is part of God’s plan to process us unto a perfect man, we should be thankful. So, we shouldn’t see affliction as a negative but more as a blessing.

Here are 3 characteristics of temptation that shows a believer is being processed by God :

  1. Common to man. The temptation is common, that most people ever suffered/ experienced. No such thing that happening to us that never happened to other people before. The bible said it is common to man!! Do not afraid!
  2. Able. We are able to endure cause it is no need a superpower, just an ordinary one, a power of usual man. Why? Yes, because our God is faithfull !! God will not let us to be tempted above that we as man, able to endure. God is faithfull.
  3. A way out. There’s always a way out, a way to escape, an end of the problem. Every problem/difficulties/troubles/affliction must have an end. Hallelujah!!

All these problems, difficulties, troubles that bring affliction to our life can be originate from our parents (such as poverty and illness), our own mistake (laziness, carelessness), other people (violence,accident) and situation in the world (war, earthquake)  and God can use all of these to process and for the good of us, that is to be a perfect man.

Just after being a perfect man, next, we will endure another affliction according to our own ministry to serve God or taking His Cross. But this one is light and in a moment and work for us a far more exceeding and eternal glory.

Hallelujah and praise the Lord. Now we have simple understanding the truth in the bible about problems, difficulties, troubles. They’re not merely negative but a blessing, cause God can use all to bring good to us and make us unto a perfect man. While, being a perfect man, God will give us ministry or taking His Cross, to another affliction. But this time will bring us an eternal glory. Amien.

Reflection :

  • If right now, as a believer, we have many problems, such as : illness, financial, job, family, etc …please do not afraid, frustrate, desperate. The truth of the bible has taught us and has made us free and certainly we can give thanks to our God.

Bible’s verses (please….meditate day and night) :

  1. 1 Corinthians 10:13
  2. Romans 8:28
  3. 2 Corinthians 4:17
