“To everything there is a season.
A time for every purpose under heaven…”
The words of the Preacher above are true in every sense. There are various times and seasons- positive and negative. Everyone will pass through each at different times.
Jesus Christ, the Savior of the world at the point of paying the price to redeem mankind, declared,
“Now My soul is troubled, and what shall I say? ‘Father, save Me from this hour’
? But this purpose I come to this hour. ‘ Father, glorify your name.’ ”
Please note the truth that you may experience a time of trouble in any form. It is a “common” experience. You are not the only one having a trouble.
In your time of trial, please watch what you say. Do not speak negative words. At such a time, you need a Presence That Makes A Difference. A personality that can effectively and efficiently handle your challenges.
Two times in the statement of Jesus, He mentioned “Father”. It means that Father was with Him,
“And He who sent Me is with Me . The Father has not left Me alone, for I always do those things that please Him”, so, He spoke to Him.
Jesus Christ was aware of the fact that His trouble had a purpose behind it. Do you know that there is a purpose behind your current trials? You may not know but that is the truth.
Now how is your relationship with the Father whose presence alone can make a difference? Let it be known to you that people have been swallowed by similar trouble you are now facing; those who went through it with God were saved.
Father has given ALL POWER to Jesus Christ. So, you need the presence of Jesus to safely go through your present trouble(s).
You will be able to say with confidence, “Father, glorify Your name”!
When three men disobeyed the law of king Nebuchadnezzar, he commanded that they be sentenced to death by FIRE. Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-Nego were not afraid when they were tied and thrown into a fiery furnace.
However, the king saw a strange thing because he declared,
“I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire; and they are not hurt , and the form of the fourth is like THE SON OF GOD.”
What then are you waiting for? Today, you can invite Jesus into your life to live the rest of your life with and in Him. So whatever trouble comes your way, you will be bold to say, “Father, glorify your name.
Stay blessed and rapturable.
