    Are you going through some ordeal or predicament? (Part 2)


    3 - Php 4:19 -> “But *my God* shall supply all *your need* according to *His riches* *in glory* by *Christ Jesus*.”.


    Questions for you to do with yourself:


    a – The Creator is really your God or do you have other lord (to whom I obey), savior (in whom I wait for succor) and treasure (my great reward)?

    b – What do you pine for is a need or a caprice or addiction?

    c – Do you wish His blessings only to supply your mean desires or in order to be spiritually prosperous and, thus, make everyone around you (including those who disturb or hate you) wealthy (see Ps 23:5)?

    d – Do you hope that He supply you through evil and corrupt people or through His glory, namely, His presence full of pure love, peace and joy?

    e – Who will be blessed with His blessings: ourselves only or His Church in our life?


    4 - Eph 3:20 -> “Now to Him who is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, *according to the power that works in us* ,”.


    Do we hope that He answer your prayers only to make our life more easy and delightful, or are we engaged in being the answer of our prayer? In other words, are we cheerful to be taken by His power to be light in the murkiness around us (2Cor 4:6), river of life in the middle of the drought of justice that torment this world (Isa 41:17,18; John 4:13,14; 7:37-39)?


    5 - Eph 1:22,23 -> “And He has put all things under His feet and gave Him to be Head over all things to the church, which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all.”


    Do we wish His blessing in order to overpower everyone around us or to better serve in His hands to edify His body?


    If you have opt for Jesus and everything that He is and do for His Bride, it is suffice to think in the heaven and smile, and the things won’t look so bad.


    So, have a good weekend overcoming all tribulations and being more than conqueror in Christ Jesus (Rom 8:37):


    · Rom 8:38,39 -> “For I am persuaded that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
