With God all things are possible / Matt.19:26/ Mark 9:23/ Luke 18:27
1 Cor. 10 is speaking of how God takes care of his (notice the condition?). And throughout tribulation He will provide such spiritual comfort for those who embrace him and seek it. He always provides a way out. This isnt to say that we wont know tribulation. The fact is we will and we can take joy in such when one puts God first.
James 1:2-3 My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience.
(Fear not physical death, the enemy, trials and tribulations...) God will neither leave nor forsake us, however many leave and forsake him.
We are told if one is unwilling to take up their cross and follow Christ they are unworthy of him. We are to be a can do people. I for one have know panic attacks in my past and feelings of overwhelming hopelessness. Such lead me to close to God and has since gone away. I even had a psychologist i visited one time during my anxiety attacks of post tramatic stress ask me why I didnt i ever consider suicide. Can you believe that? I said cause I know that wouldnt be right with God and walked out.(He asked a family member of mine how "religious" was I and or how long). I exsperianced so much growth after reaching rock bottom yet if I hadnt turned to God who knows I probably wouldnt be here. As I grew I embraced correction and as a result burned some bridges and cut out many vices in my life.
<For Better or for Worse -Lynn Johnston>
Sure there are things that man can not handle without God (Mk.14:21/ Lk.22:22) Deut.28/
1 Jn.3:15/ Rev.4:11/ 1 Jn.4:7-8,18 (note the first commandment). But God is The Almighty and there is nothing he cant handle. This is why the fear of the Lord is the beginning IMV! God is a consuming fire and truth will stand while all else is a blaze. If God be for us who can be against us? * Rom.8:35-39
<Pickles -Brian Crane>
No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.
2 Corinthians 12:9-10 (KJV)
And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.
(Note: "My GRACE"! un-deserving favor) With God all things are possible. Without God one is nothing and will even perish.
(2 Pet.3:8/ Jn.3:16)
God doesnt look to cast burdens upon people. People bring negative effects upon themselves, and we are not yet in the kingdom, In the physical realm we (our Spirits) are within CORRUPTIBLE bodies. (Which get sick, age, get hurt...) In this physical realm both good and evil are at play and can effect one another. The Victory is Only in YHVH. We are told of certain effects that come as result of certain actions and some infirmaties and bad things are not always a result of ones actions. (Lk.13:1-5)
It is vital that one knows that there are effects for blaming God for burdens within our life. VERY HARSH EFFECTS.Jer.23:(33-)39-40*
Praise be to God that we can recieve Spiritual Life and COMFORT. For the overcomers- worries of this world will fade away and in the eturnity there will not be a tear shed. I dont think we will find one person there who says God gives his children more than they can handle;)
I think death is the only thing that one cant handle and yet with YHVH they can (Heb.2:14). <PHYSICAL AND SPIRITUAL DEATH> Those who dont embrace the Heavenly Father shall recieve death and we know no man of his own power can defeat death.
There are conditions to be met in order to recieve both blessing and or cursings. Yet I think I have touched on the fact that tribulations and or infirmaties cant always be considered as just cursings and instead can even be seen to serve as a postive.
I admire Joseph cause he always found a postive within negative situations. and lets not forget Job, who never blamed God nor blasphemed God througout his trials of trails even when his so called friends would say such was because Job wasnt in good standing with YHVH. (some kind of friends uh).
Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.
Rom.8:26 Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.
Eph.6:10-17/ 1 Pet.1:6-9
The wise seek edification but fools despise correction.
MATTHEW 11:28-30 The yoke of God is one of a concerned Shepherd.
There are many who are luke warm. These people are fine as long as they dont have to face tribulation or problems. They are fine as long as they have what they want. God cant very well use such people.
Again those who are strong in their faith and in a relationship with God will God walk with. God tells the enemy that in the last days they are Not to touch his annointed. We have examples of such.
Note: Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego in the Fiery Furnace /or/ Daniel in the lions den and so many more...
We are also told that the time of great tribulation will be shortened for the elects sake. Matt.24:22 (24)/ Mk.13:20 (22)
God will neither leave nor forsake us:
Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.
1 Kings 8:57/ Ps.27:9
The time will come when one will not be able to buy, sell, or trade (or have health care) if they are of the world. When one learns this they often tend to ask, how then shall we survive?
Note nature and how the animals live off of their sences! birds are drawn to seed and deer to feed (often they use the wind to pick up on such sences Jn.3:8).... Much like manna durning the exodus, God provides for his.
Matt. 6:25-34 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life (worry), what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment? Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature? And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.
Worry doesnt add one minute unto ones life!
"Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?"
And which of you with taking thought can add to his stature one cubit?
Philippians 4:6 Be careful (anxious) for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.
1 Peter 5:7, John 14:27, Luke 21:19, Rom. 5:3-8
-Rom.8:28 "And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose."
-Jn.9 "And as Jesus passed by, he saw a man which was blind from his birth. And his disciples asked him, saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind? Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him. I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work. As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world. When he had thus spoken, he spat on the ground, and made clay of the spittle, and he anointed the eyes of the blind man with the clay, And said unto him, Go, wash in the pool of Siloam, (which is by interpretation, Sent.) He went his way therefore, and washed, and came seeing."
-2 Cor12 (10) Paul asked God to heal him of an infirmity and God chose not to for the same underlining reason "Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong"/ His Will Be done and Praise be His Name.
