Prov 24.16 = ‘For a righteous man falleth seven times, and riseth up again; But the wicked are overthrown by calamity’. I am perfect the day I become a believer and at the same time we are not perfect but in our imperfection we are living in faith and abiding in him. There is a part of us that is perfect but the other part is in process to become like Christ. Deut 8.3 / I Pet 4.12-16 There is a mood that is very prevalent in Christianity and it is that people don&t want to suffer. We need to learn how to suffer well ! Trouble is the way to our promotion, it’s the way that God has chosen for us. We fall into trouble but we don’t live in it, we get up and live by faith. We can learn how to worship and come before a holy God in the midst of a fiery furnace. How do we do it ? 1) – We are thankful 2) – We live by the Book 3) – We Worship God and live by faith Jer 17.5 When we learn to suffer well, we see good everywhere, we see grace, we see grace and we see God standing for us. We learn how to suffer and our life becomes amazing !
