Standing on the Precious Promises of God – Part 2

Filed under: Christian Living — Tags: , , , , — cpministries @ 6:16 pm

This life is about Trials, Tribulations, and Persecutions!!!

John 16:33
33  These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

James 1:2-4
2  My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations;
Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience.
But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.

Are we being led by the Flesh??? Or the Spirit???

Romans 5:3-6
3  And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience;
4  And patience, experience; and experience, hope:
5  And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.
6  For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.

These are the Scriptures you need to overcome your Trials, Tribulations, and Persecutions!

Romans 8:33-39
33  Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God’s elect? It is God that justifieth.
34  Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.
35  Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
36  As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.
37  Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
38  For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
39  Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Psalms 126:5-6
They that sow in tears shall reap in joy.
He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.

Job 1:21
21  And said, Naked came I out of my mother’s womb, and naked shall I return thither: the LORD gave, and the LORD hath taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD.

James 5:7-11
Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord. Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter rain.
Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh.
9  Grudge not one against another, brethren, lest ye be condemned: behold, the judge standeth before the door.
10  Take, my brethren, the prophets, who have spoken in the name of the Lord, for an example of suffering affliction, and of patience.
11  Behold, we count them happy which endure. Ye have heard of the patience of Job, and have seen the end of the Lord; that the Lord is very pitiful, and of tender mercy.

Psalms 34:15-19
15  The eyes of the LORD are upon the righteous, and his ears are open unto their cry.
16  The face of the LORD is against them that do evil, to cut off the remembrance of them from the earth.
17  The righteous cry, and the LORD heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles.
18  The LORD is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.
19  Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth him out of them all.

The Word of God is Truth!!!  Let All Men Be a LIAR!!!

Romans 8:28-32
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.
29  For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.
30  Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.
31  What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?
32  He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?

Matthew 6:31-34
31  Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?
32  (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.
33  But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; andall these things shall be added unto you.
34  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.

Hear the Words of the Lord All Ye People!!! 

Matthew 11:28-30
28  Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
29  Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
30  For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light

Come unto me and I WILL GIVE YOU REST!!!  Not maybe! Not I might!  But I WILL GIVE YOU REST!!!

Take My Yoke upon you!!!   LEARN OF ME!!!

My YOKE IS EASY!!!  My BURDEN IS LIGHT!!!

The Word of God is Truth!!!  Let All Men Be a LIAR!!!

It is not hard to serve the LORD!!! The LORD said all ye that labour and are heavy laden come unto me and I will give you REST!!!!  REST!!!!  For My yoke is EASY!!!  Not HARD!!!  My Burden is LIGHT!!!!  NOT HEAVY!!!!!

Romans 6:23
23  For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

The WAGES of SIN is HARD!!!  The LABOUR for DEATH is HEAVY!!! 

He that hath an EAR to Hear, Let Him Hear, what Thus Saith the LORD!!!

Psalms 55:22
22  Cast thy burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.

Hebrews 13:5
5  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.

Psalms 9:9-11
9  The LORD also will be a refuge for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble.
10  And they that know thy name will put their trust in thee: for thou, LORD, hast not forsaken them that seek thee.
11  Sing praises to the LORD, which dwelleth in Zion: declare among the people his doings.

Psalms 37:23-25
23  The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way.
24  Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the LORD upholdeth him with his hand.
25  I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.

Wait Upon the Lord!!!

1 Peter 5:6-10
Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:
Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.
8  Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:
9  Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.
10  But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you.

Psalms 27:14
14  Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.

Isaiah 40:29-31
29  He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength.
30  Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall:
31  But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

Isaiah 30:18
18  And therefore will the LORD wait, that he may be gracious unto you, and therefore will he be exalted, that he may have mercy upon you: for the LORD is a God of judgment: blessed are all they that wait for him.

Jeremiah 9:23-24
23  Thus saith the LORD, Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, neither let the mighty man glory in his might, let not the rich man glory in his riches:
24  But let him that glorieth glory in this, that he understandeth and knoweth me, that I am the LORD which exercise lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth: for in these things I delight, saith the LORD.

The Word of God is Truth!!!  Let All Men Be a LIAR!!! 

Everything has a time!!!

Ecclesiastes 3:1
To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:

Hear this again!! {Re-read}

Not some things.  But to Everything there is a season and a time to every purpose!!

This is so important!!!!!!  Everything has a TIME and SEASON!!!  Did I mention to EVERY PURPOSE THERE IS A TIME AND A SEASON??!!!!

Never forget this important scripture!!  God has a TIME and a SEASON for every purpose and for everything.

2  A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
3  A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;

To Everything there is a season and a time to every purpose!!!
Almighty God has a purpose and a time for everything in your life!!! 
God is in 100% control of everything at ALL TimeEverything must unfold according to the Purpose in which the Will of God has for it!!!!  Including YOUR LIFE!!!!

4  A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;

A time for Trials, and a time for Victory; a time to see through a Glass Darkly, and a time to Know All Things!
A time for the trying of your Faith, and a time to hear the words, Well done, thou good and faithful servant.

5  A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
6  A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
7  A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
8  A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.

Galatians 4:3-5
3  Even so we, when we were children, were in bondage under the elements of the world:
4  But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law,
To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons.

Even Jesus Christ had a Time to come!!!  And when the Time had come for him to be born and to begin to fulfill all the prophecies concerning the Christ…..

The whole World was set into motion!!!!

Luke 2:1-11
1  And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that all the world should be taxed.
2  (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.)
3  And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city.
4  And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:)
To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child.
6  And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered.
7  And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.
8  And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.
9  And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.
10  And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
11  For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.

John 2:4-5
4  Jesus saith unto her, Woman, what have I to do with thee? mine hour is not yet come.
5  His mother saith unto the servants, Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it.

The Word of God is Truth!!!  Let All Men Be a LIAR!!! 

John 7:30
30  Then they sought to take him: but no man laid hands on him, because his hour was not yet come.

Why???  Why can’t I get the help I need to overcome this trial in my life??? Why???  Why can’t I figure out what needs done???

Has Your Time For the Understanding you seek come????  Has Your Time for Suffering in this Trial brought you to the place that God has designed for you???

Romans 9:20-24
20  Nay but, O man, who art thou that repliest against God? Shall the thing formed say to him that formed it, Why hast thou made me thus?
21  Hath not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel unto honour, and another unto dishonour?
22  What if God, willing to show his wrath, and to make his power known, endured with much longsuffering the vessels of wrath fitted to destruction:
23  And that he might make known the riches of his glory on the vessels of mercy, which he had afore prepared unto glory,
24  Even us, whom he hath called, not of the Jews only, but also of the Gentiles?

The Word of God is Truth!!!  Let All Men Be a LIAR!!! 

For ever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven!!!
