|More Precious Than God|
Our Bible Study Teacher, Linda, was sharing that although we may go through problems in life, we can trust in God to bring us through victorious. I took notes on the lesson.
1Peter 1:6-7 (NKJV) In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while, if need be, you have been grieved by various trials, that the genuineness of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes, though it is tested by fire, may be found to praise, honor, and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ, whom having not seen you love.
Philippians 4:4-8 (NKJV) Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice! Let your gentleness be known to all men. The Lord is at hand. Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
Place your trust in God and not in your own understanding.
Proverbs 3:5-6 (NKJV) Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.
It is important that we hide God’s Word in our hearts. Thus we can remind ourselves of His promises when we are tested as by fire. The issues of life try to pull us down, with their painful and torturous blows; but know that with God, we shall overcome.
As believers we live our life and let it shine for Jesus. You are an influence in this world of darkness.
2 Peter 3:9 (NKJV) The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, and He is not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.
