“You can be sure that the more we undergo sufferings for Christ, the more He will shower us with His comfort and encouragement.” – 2 Corinthians 1:5
These sufferings are not sickness and poverty as some religious teaching suggest. These afflictions are described as the “fellowship of sufferings” that the believer will encounter for doing the will of God, or the sufferings brought on by one;s allegiance to Jesus.
“That I may know Him, and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being made conformable unto His death.” – Philippians 3:10
“And now, little children, abide (live, remain permanently) in Him, so that when He is made visible, we may have and enjoy perfect confidence….” – 1 John 2:28
The Word states that when we abide in Him and He is “visible,”– we have confidence. So we can say that when we abide in Christ, we are able to “see” more clearly, and when we have vision we can also be bold and assured. We are His temple — we need to continue to draw near.”
Hunger for God is one of the greatest signs of life a person can have. We must press past intellectual awareness to hunger for heartfelt encounters that change and transform.
Is there not deep inside you a longing for His continuous presence? Do you not crave an increase of God’s love, God’s joy, God’s peace, God’s power?
I become sensitive to my spirit by meditating on spiritual things at all times — by meditating on the Lord, on His goodness, on His greatness, and on His word.
God’s best for me is to take the seed of His word and plant it in my heart where it will naturally and effortlessly produce the changes that I desire.
My goal is to extend the Kingdom of God to earth.
