How God makes us perfect to face trials and temptation?

Three ways Jesus makes us perfect:

There are three ways God makes us perfect through trials and temptations. We can learn them from these people mentioned below.
  1. From the life of Daniel
  2. From the life of Job and from Paul & Silas
  3. From the life of Stephen
From the life of Daniel:

                     Daniel's friends Shadrach, Meshach, Abed-nego were put into fire and Jesus came into them and they never feel the heat of fire. Jesus protected them from the midst of persecution. He protected even before they suffer. This is of one kind God answers prayers and protect His people. God not always protect His people without suffering. The below two will explain the situation.

From the life of Job and from Paul & Silas

                     Job had a very acute sickness and disease and he was even condemned by his wife. But even in that situation, He never curse God. Thus God allows temptation in the life of his children to make them perfect to be a holy sacrifice unto Him and to be a part of heaven. Then, later in the part, God delivers Job from his sickness and he was blessed twice as the time before. This is the next way, God reacts to His people.

Even from the life of Paul and Silas, we can clearly say that, they were beaten and sent to jail with bruises and severe pain but later God delivered them from the midst of harmful hands.

From the life of Stephen:

                   The third and the final one is God allows His children to be suffered and die as a martyr. Stephen was his with stones from the people and he was heavily wounded. Even-though he prayed unto God to forgive those people. Later his face was like an angel. He had seen the glory of God in heaven. In Acts 7: 59 "And they stoned Stephen, calling upon  God, and saying, Lord Jesus, receive my spirit." In 60th verse "And he kneeled down, and cried with a loud voice, Lord, lay not this sin to their charge. And when he had said this, he fell asleep." Thus he died as a martyr. Did Jesus saved him in this world? No, but Stephen will be seated in heaven with Jesus.

Even it may seems Jesus forsake him, He never. Jesus made him the perfect man like Him and took him to heaven. This is the third way God answers. So, when a man stand for God till his end, He will be the victorious one ever to enter in His kingdom of heaven. I pray that all who know Jesus will stand till our end for our Lord and savior Jesus Christ. Amen.

Who are saints? Whats convenient for them?

                      Paul clearly says in Eph 5:3; "But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints"

We are saints and we are called to be saints. Not only the Pastors, evangelists or any one who does the work of God is a saint. But who were called and saved in the blood of Jesus are saints.

So, to be a saint and to do the will of God what are all the things needed? What are things that are worthy or convenient to saints? "Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks."

Giving thanks in all the situation is the only thing that is convenient for the saints. Jesus is so good and giving thanks in all He does is not at all a tough thing to do.

The below song really captures the gentleness and sweetness in giving praise to your Lord Jesus.

Jesus really hates these things mentioned in verse 3. "But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you; Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks". We need to get rid of these things for our praises to become holy and acceptable to our Lord.

Give thanks to our Lord and that's what needed and acceptable to our Lord. Practice giving thanks in all situation we go and it will really get us closer to our Lord Jesus. He is the way, the truth and the life...

God Bless you people......

121 - Our 24 hour customer care ! ! !

My Jesus never sleeps nor slumbers:

Do you know that our lord never sleeps and He is our watchful God? Yes,.... wherever you are, whatever position you are... Just dial 121.

Psalms 121 is the answer..... It is a song of degrees. "I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help". when you are depressed, distressed, collapsed.. in whatever trails or temptations just lookup and lift your eyes unto the hills..yes,.. the only God of salvation that helps in any situation.

"My help  cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth". He is not a God made of but the God who made heavens and the earth. He is our helper and His hand will lift us up with consolation. How grateful we are to have such a mighty God? "He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber". He protects us. He gives power to the weak and He watches over us.

"Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep" He never slumbers or sleep. He is the only God with an watchful eye over us protecting us from our enemies... He is a good God and our Father who is in heaven.

"The LORD shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul". These words really gives me energy to do great things 'cause it has power and life in it. He is my preserver. The next verse is what I love it.

"The LORD shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore". He saves us for evermore. He is with us for eternity. Those who believe will have life from these words.. Glorious god is ours.. God bless you....
