God Has An End Date To Your Suffering

Good morning sweet friends! How are y’all doing? How has you weekend been? I’ve been a wee bit puny but making it, guess the Lord wanted me to rest this weekend LOL.

Seek God’s will in ALL you do, and He will show you the path to take. Proverbs 3:6

God has prepared your path precious one! I have seen God move and do so much. It just amazes me! He is concerned about what concerns you and longs to bless His children and bring healing and restoration to your lives.

Even when you’re in the throes of heartache, pain, sadness, hopelessness….whatever it is you’re going through it’s easy to feel like it will never end. BUT God has a plan and even an END DATE to your suffering sweet friend. Breakthrough is coming!

So when the path your on seems so dark, painful, and lonely remember precious one He’s still there, He’s with you always. He will never leave you nor forsake you!

God doesn’t cause the trials but He will use them for our good. Steps we can take to come out of our darkness and pain.

1. Rely on Him.

Indeed, we felt that we had received the sentence of death. But that was to make us rely not on ourselves but on God who raises the dead. 2 Corinthians 1:9

Trials remind us of our great need of God and how we cannot function apart from him. Sometimes the trials seem long, lonely and dark, but there is no place, no pit to dark or to deep that God can’t reach down gentle pick you up.

2. Be patient.

Blessed is he who patiently endures trials; for when he has stood the test, he will gain the victor’s crown–even the crown of Life–which the Lord has promised to those who love Him. James 1:12

It’s all in how we wait for God. Sometimes I think He’s waiting on us to do our part and if that’s the case then we need to be proactive and do what it is He wants us to do.

Other times we really are waiting on God, when we know how much God truly loves us and that He indeed hears our prayers, then we can wait with a confident expectation that he does want what’s best for us and our families and in His perfect timing it will come to pass. But if while we wait we are grumbling and complaining, we can expect to go around the mountain another time just like the Israelites did. Learn to wait well my friend. God knows exactly what we need, when we need it!

3. Be steadfast.

Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. James 1:2-3

The bible talks about how suffering produces steadfastness in us. But man sometimes it’s that “suffering” that feels like it’s gonna kill us, doesn’t it? Sometimes I feel like “Lord can you take thesufferingsomewhere else, LOL.

But seriously, I know this is hard believe me I do but we need to learn to be thankful even when the trials come. This where leaning in comes in. When you’ve waited for that baby and it hasn’t happened….yet. This is God’s opportunity to do something really big in your life and give you an amazing testimony. Your leaning in trusting God, be thankful He’s at work on your behalf. Be thankful when your sick and it takes a long time to find answers or for your healing to come, there’s something to learn while your miracle is on the way. There’s also someone you can help. Be thankful when your so depressed you can’t get out of the bed, I know it sounds silly but it’s God’s economy. Call out to God in your darkness. Ask Him to bring friends and loved ones who understand but also in your pain reach out to others hurting while your waiting for your healing. Be thankful when you have family members making wrong choices and you are powerless to change it, this gives God an opportunity to show himself strong. Trust that God has them in the palm of his hand and he knows exactly what they need to come back to Him. Pray! Pray! Pray!

What James is saying is to be thankful when trials come because our faith will be tested. When your faith is tested perseverance comes, and as we endure for a time we will become steadfast.

4. Comfort others.

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God. 2 Corinthians 1:3-4

God will turn your mess into a message!

“What you went through will not be wasted, God saw each tear. He has a plan for your life!! But He says, don’t stay on the sidelines of life, I have rescued and healed you for a purpose. Use your message, comfort one another, for people all around you are hurting. They are going through trials of their own or maybe the same thing you’ve gone through. Someone needs what you have.”

5. Speak life/God’s Word

Death and life [are] in the {power} of the tongue, and those who love her will eat of her fruit. Proverbs 18:21

Call those things that be not as though there are!! Yes my friend it’s time to do spiritual warfare with the words that come out of our mouth!! Is what your saying in agreement with God’s word or are you complaining about your problems and situation instead going to THE ONE who can solve it? Complaining only makes our problems seem bigger, never ending and hopeless. Use your faith and words to speak LIFE.

Our words our soooo powerful!! The are like containers, they either contain life, faith and blessings or they contain death, doubt, unbelief and cursing.

Choose on purpose to renew your mind and speak God’s word and positive things from your mouth. You’ll be surprised at how quickly a hopeless situation turns around when we allow God in and change our perspective. God IS BIGGER than any problem we have and the battle belongs to Him so Let go and Let God!

6. Pray

Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

The POWER of prayer, let it be UNLEASHED in your life!!! The word UNLEASH means to release from a leash or restraint. cause (a strong or violent force) to be released or become unrestrained. Just think about that, if we pray for God’s Power to be UNLEASHED in our lives, our family, our cities, our country and our world how much different things would be.

His resurrection power IN YOU can do amazing things!

The devil has NO control over your prayers, but he might make you think your prayers aren’t being heard or that God simply does care about you or what’s important to you. I’m here to tell you that is a lie straight from the pit of hell. God does care and He loves you and cares about what concerns you sweet one. The enemy is just hoping you won’t open that pretty little mouth of yours and speak God’s Word and promises over your life and family!! But unleash it sweet friend!! Your prayers and offerings to God are like sweet fragrance.

Never doubt He’s love for you, He’s with you always carrying you, leading and guiding you.

STILL- By Hillary Scott

“You’re parting waters, Making a way for me. You’re moving mountains that I don’t even see. You’ve answered my prayer before I even speak. All You need for me to be is still”

I am so thankful He has been preparing a way for me. He is making my crooked places straight and He has an end date to my suffering. My friend He has one for you too. He is no respecter of persons. What He does for one He will do for another. Let the goodness and kindness of God overtake you.

What has God done in your life? Let’s encourage each other.

Big hugs,

Nicole💗
