Y God Gives You the Strength to Mature Y

For I can do everything with the help of Christ who gives me the

.strength I need

~~ Ephesians 4:13 NLT ~~

.A weightlifter's strength is defined by the number of pounds or kilos lifted

The strength of a building is measured by its resistance to external forces

exerted by wind or earthquakes. The strength of a corporation is often

defined by its net assets. But what is spiritual strength? The Bible teaches

that spiritual strength involves the power to lift burdens, a foundation deep

.enough to resist external pressure, and the security of unlimited resources

When once the householder has risen up and shut the door

you will begin to stand outside and to knock at the door, saying

Lord, open to us. He will answer you,
I do not know where

you come from.
Then you will begin to say,
We ate and drank in

your presence, and you taught in our streets.
But he will

,I tell you, I do not know where you come from; depart

from me, all you workers of iniquity!
will weep and gnash

your teeth, when you see Abraham and Isaac and Jacob and all

the prophets in the kingdom of God.and you yourselves thrust

out And men will come from east and west,and from north and

south, and sit at table in the kingdom of God. And behold

.some are last who will be first

~~ Luke 13:25-30 ~~

Sometimes we have to hurt to be healed and God is letting us hurt so he can

heal us....maybe not phyisically but spiritually. He doesn't want our

bodies but our souls. Satan (whom I didnt' believed existed either) is

.a deciever and wants us to blame God and turn our backs on Him

The terrior, pain, suffering is a battle between Satan and God and we are

caughtin the middle! We can see the distruction and can't do anything about

it.Praying helps but you really have to have your heart set on God for Him to

.hear you and sometimes the answer WE want isn't always the answer we get

God knows our hearts and what we need....maybe not at this moment but

.in time to come we see the true reason behind the answer we got

If you don't believe in God then you have nothing to lose by praying to

Him and asking Him to prove Himself to you....right? God will show

.Himself when need be
