Godly edification

God is our Father and therefore He edifies us to teach us faith and His pure love for us as His children.  We are commanded to love others and only the dispensation of God leads to love through faith.  The blessings that love brings are a pure heart, a good conscience and sincere/genuine faith.  These are the characteristics of a pure heart. 

Be careful to get involved in empty arguments with yourself or others.  They make little sense and are not worth hearing.  It will cause you to wish or desire as it is the emotional element that leads to consequent action.  It is a strong natural impulse and can and is the easiest manner for Satan to get a hold onto your life.  Satan's aim is for you to start doubting your faith.

The will of God for you

It isn't the will of God for you to perish but only to come to repentance.  When we persist in rebellion and we don't repent (maybe it's as a result of a certain situation in your life), God will give us up and over to our own ways which will damn our souls.  He can't save men who persist in damning their own souls.  God is the author of the laws of sowing and reaping and this is the sense in which God has anything to do with such destinies.

Repentance will give you good hope through God's grace.  He love us and wants to comfort us.  It is His will for us to be established in good works and words.  God has given us everlasting consulation and only He can comfort your heart.

Your life journey in Christ

 Have you ever thought that your interpretation of your life journey may be of some value to someone else present in your life?  It also teaches character to the individual and provides valuable lessons for him/her to learn from.  I want to assure you that the Holy Spirit is always with you during these times to guide you and no matter what happens God wants you to stand up and walk this journey with Him.  Lift your head up high, don't look at the mountain in front of you, He will guide you to get on the other side of this mountain.  He wants you to share your heart with Him:  your needs, emotions and thoughts.  You have to give recognition to your own feelings and thoughts.  He wants you to share with Him as He is the source of life, hope and love.

Is tribulations worth the suffering?

Our character is being crafted by God through suffering.  A new creation in God is being created by Him.  God's intension for you is to birthed by a new spirit.  This is a guarantee of the rewards of those who endure persecution.  His judgements ae righteous and based upon the law of sowing and reaping and His Holy Spirit will bless you at a time that He has calculated for you to be blessed by His grace.  We need to be humble in the eyes of God and not rebellious as rebellious behaviour will not bring forth character nor the grace of God. 

The truth is that tribulations will never end because there are so many things God wants to teach us through them.  Rather be open to learn from your tribulations than to be rebellious which my cause you to lose hope and be depressed.  Your tribulations will not correspond with those of your friend since God's calling for you will differ from his/hers.  Try not to see it in a negative light but rather in a positive one from which there is a lesson in each one for you to learn from it.  You will be given rest from your suffering when the Messiah comes and be allowed to enter the kingdom.
