Redundancy
« on: February 17, 2010, 01:46:33 PM »

I debated with myself whether or not to share this as it seemed minor compared to some of the recent posts that have described some very dark places that folk are experiencing. But then I thought - this is my family, I think they would like to know, and I need them right now!

So, if you could add me to your long and evergrowing prayer list I would be really grateful, I need your prayers. My partner and I both work for the same company and we have both been given three months notice of redundancy. It feels a very bleak time. I'm confident that in the future I will look back over my shoulder and see God's hand at work ........ its just tough right now to even think straight. All my efforts are in trying to rest in Him .... sorry if that sounds a bit Irish!! Thank you, Myms

Hi Myms,

What you are going through does not sound minor to me.  I will gladly pray for you and your husband.  We all need prayer for strength to endure whatever trial we are faced with.

I know that prayers for our endurance through the trials we are appointed to overcome, are not only a comfort, but a strenght that God knows we need.

I will pray for you both myms.

From LOF - Part 3:

Was it just Paul that God singled out to endure such hardships and
trials? No, we too must partake of the same:

"Confirming the souls of the disciples, and exhorting
them to continue in the faith, and that WE
[Christians,
followers of Christ] MUST through MUCH
TRIBULATION
[Greek: thlipsis--affliction, troubles,
burdens, persecution, anguish] enter into the kingdom
of God"
(Acts 14:22).

...who is ultimately responsible for ALL things,
including the tribulations and persecutions
of believers? It is, of course, GOD

"Who works ALL things after the counsel of His Own
WILL"
(Eph. 1:11).
"So that we ourselves glory in you in the churches of
God for your patience and faith in ALL YOUR
PERSECUTIONS AND TRIBULATIONS that ye endure;
Which is a manifest token
[display] of [of WHAT?] ...
OF the RIGHTEOUS JUDGMENT [Gk: ‘just judging’] OF
GOD!"


And for what grand purpose?

"... that ye may be counted WORTHY OF THE
KINGDOM OF GOD, for which ye also SUFFER"
(2
Thes. 1:4-5).

***************************************************

I'm praying for you.

Romans 7:24 What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? 25 Thanks be to God—through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, I myself in my mind am a slave to God's law, but in the sinful nature a slave to the law of sin.
