ROMANS 5: 1-9… Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God. Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us. But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Since we have now been justified by his blood, how much more shall we be saved from God’s wrath through him!
I’m starting with these verses because we all have our tribulations, struggles, weaknesses and distractions that sometimes makes it hard to understand why things happen to us. First of all, we all should know that we always have evil spirits always attacking us because we are close to God and the evil spirit hates that, and tries everything possible to try to change the bond that we all have with God. Of course, its hard when we are going through these hard times but we should always know that God is always with us and he will always give us the strength to get through it. I recently was going through a hard time where I was getting attacked in a couple of different ways in my life and even though it got really tough for me I got through it because I knew that my bond that I have with God, that I should be able to get through anything. God gives me signs and messages and when I was going through this hard times he had me go to this blog site and I saw this video from Colton Dixon the song was Never Gone and it was so beautiful to me because I knew that Jesus was telling me that I might not hear from him every day but he is always with me. God is so great on how he gives me all these signs and messages because he loves me and all of his children, which means all of you. The reason I put this verse at the top, because one day I was praying in tongues and talking to God when all of a sudden I heard “I rejoice in your pain and suffering” and I heard it a couple of times in my head and I didn’t really understand why. So, later on that day I went on still kind of wondering why I heard that and trying to understand it and that night I was laying down in my bed and all of a sudden I heard in my head Romans 5. I thought why am I hearing Romans 5?? Maybe it was just something I was thinking about? No, it wasn’t. I heard it again and I decided to look it up again because maybe this was God trying to give me a message. So, I went and there it was the message that I heard during the day about how God rejoices in our suffering because suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. I was so happy that God was giving me that message. It lifted my spirit up so high and I felt light as a feather. God knows everything that we are all going through and we just have to believe that he will lift us up always at the moment that we need.. 🙂
MY MOTHERS VISION
My mother just yesterday was praying and talking to God and she was telling God that she has been very distracted recently and she has been feeling kind of sad about it so while she was thinking and talking to God she got this vision.
She saw herself walking up these stairs to heaven and Jesus was walking on the same stairs but he was a little ahead of her. She started noticing that the stairs started getting thinner and harder to walk on and she was struggling to walk up any more stairs but just then Jesus turned around and came to her and lifted her up in his arms and took her up the stairs to heaven.
I think this is the most beautiful and encouraging vision that I could of ever heard because Jesus knows that we are all going to have hard times and we will have our times that we can get distracted or have a hard time following our calling but Jesus will always be there for us to get us back on track to were we belong, and we belong with him in heaven.. 🙂 So, if anyone out there is having struggles, distractions, confusion, getting attacked by bad spirits or any kind of tribulations in life just remember that Jesus is always with us and he will lift us up when we need it. He is our strength and power that we have in life. WE LOVE YOU JESUS YOU ARE EVERYTHING TO US… 🙂
