Big Brother CJ What To Do In A Test
What To Do In A Test PT 1 2 & 3
I Peter 4:12-13:12Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you:
13But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ's sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.
We all experience trials and tribulations in life. Some last longer than others and some seem to be worst than others. In this season, God is pouring out increase on His people like never than before. Just because God said He will bless you, does not mean you will never be tried again. On every level, there's a new devil; or a new situation in your life.
You must understand that even though Satan presents himself in a situation, you have everything you need on the inside of you. Satan has already been defeated. The only person that can cause you to miss out on your set time is you.
When a trial comes, stay focused! Focus on the vision God gave you. Whatever God showed you in the light, you must hold onto and not forget in your night season.
One reason why Saints are going through so bad is because their vision is impaired. Instead of seeing the vision and God, they are too busy looking at one another, their situation and what they do not have.
Stop looking at the flaws and follow Christ. If you see someone stumble, help them up and keep moving forward. When you feel depressed, set the vison before your eyes.
James 4:8-10: 8Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.
10Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.
In order to come out on the top during your test, you must avoid placing blame on others. You create and form your own worlds based upon what you do and say. The Word of God is a mirror, in it you should see a reflection of yourself and not your friends, brothers, or sisters. Humble yourself. Open yourself up to be corrected by God. So many Christians are ready to point the fingers at others, but fail to see the issues in their own lives.
We must see the good in everybody.
Understand this, your trouble is not coming from that person, but there is an enemy at large.Satan desires to break unity in the lives of the believers. He want us to fall out of the love walk so that we begin to look around and not at God.
When you fail to love, you are no longer obeying the commandment of God. God is love; how can you say you are with God and cannot love others? This a spirit of double-mindedness.
When Satan begin to try to get you to look at someone else and their short comings, just remember when you where down. Remember when you were broken. Remember how you felt when the world seemed to turn their backs on you.
When you remember where you came from, you will not be so judgmental of others. When you continue to blame others, you build a box around yourself and you will never be able to break free until you stop looking at other people.
I Thessalonians 5:16-18:16Rejoice evermore.
18In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
Another important thing you must do in order to overcome your test is to stay in a praising attitude. Resist the need to complain. Complaining does not exemplify Christ. Complaining only makes your situation worst. Remember, death and life are in the power of your tongue. You have whatsoever you say.
If you fill your mouth with negative things, that is what you will have. If you fill your mouth with praise and adoration to God, that's what your situation will change into. God has to have something to work with. If you fail to give Him anything, He cannot work out the situation for you.
God wants us to have His joy, no matter what the situation is. We must continue to be thankful through all of our situations and circumstances. No matter what the devil throws your way, be thankful to God for how great things are anyway.
This is faith. Faith says, I'm going to praise you because you will still bring me out on top. Faith says, I don't see it right now, but I'm a winner. Faith says I'm a champion when I don't feel like it. I'm a champion when I'm sick and bound. Your faith is the key to unlock change in your life.
When you don't have faith, you don't please God and nothing will happen for you. Increase your faith during your test. Read what God's Word says about you and His promises for you. Turn off the news and their negative reports and turn on the Holy Ghost on the inside of you. Speak to your situation!
