Faith Testing

July 20, 2017

Proverbs 17:3 NET … The crucible is for refining silver and the furnace is for gold, likewise the Lord tests hearts.

Faith testing
Allows your patient endurance to grow
Ja 1:3
Producing proven character and hope!Ro 5:3-4

Tested proven faith is of greater worth
… than gold refined in the fire! 1Pe 1:7

The purifier sits before the crucible(Mal 3:3), fixing his eye on the metal, and taking care that the fire be not too hot, and keeping the metal in, only until he knows the dross to be completely removed by his seeing his own image reflected (Ro 8:29) in the glowing mass. So the Lord in the case of His elect (Job 23:10; Ps 66:10; Pr 17:3; Isa 48:10; Heb 12:10; 1Pe 1:7)

Hebrews 10:35-37 NLT …  So do not throw away this confident trust in the Lord, no matter what happens. Remember the great reward it brings you! Patient endurance is what you need now, so that you will continue to do God’s will. Then you will receive all that He has promised. For in just a little while, the Coming One will come and not delay.

Hoping with Patient Endurance

April 21, 2014

Hebrews 11:1 AMP
Now faith is the assurance (the confirmation, the title deed) of the things [we] hope for, being the proof of things [we] do not see and the conviction of their reality [faith perceiving as real fact what is not revealed to the senses].

Hoping for what we cannot see means awaiting it with patient endurance.

Hebrews 10:37-39 AMP
37 For still a little while (a very little while), and the Coming One will come and He will not delay.
38 But the just shall live by faith [My righteous servant shall live by his conviction respecting man’s relationship to God and divine things, and holy fervor born of faith and conjoined with it]; and if he draws back and shrinks in fear, My soul has no delight or pleasure in him.
39 But our way is not that of those who draw back to eternal misery (perdition) and are utterly destroyed, but we are of those who believe [who cleave to and trust in and rely on God through Jesus Christ, the Messiah] and by faith preserve the soul.

Hope Rises Midst the Darkness

November 9, 2009

I seem to have had a pretty ‘dark’ week. BUT  … the Lord encouraged me with an image to make, ‘Heb 10:35-37’ and the idea that it’s during this darkness that hope is born and rises. It’s during these dark times especially that He pours out His love refining our faith which is more precious than gold. 

So look beyond the darkness!

For it’s during the darkest part of the night that the morning star appears, before the glory on the wings of dawn. As surely as we see the morning star arise, we will see the dawn. The morning star is never far from the rising sun. 

For those who revere His Holy name, the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in its wings. — Mal 4:2

“I, Jesus, have sent my angel to give you this testimony for the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, and the bright Morning Star.” … To him who overcomes and does my will to the end, I will give authority over the nations— ‘He will rule them with an iron scepter; he will dash them to pieces like pottery’— just as I have received authority from my Father. I will also give him the morning star. –Rev 2:16, 26-28 

To him who overcomes, an unspeakable brightness, joy and peace is given. 

Dominion in Jesus Christ our Lord, the bright Morning Star. 

Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you will abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. -Rom 15:13

Hope Rises Midst the Darkness

Romans 8:23-25     And not only this, but also we ourselves, having the first fruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting eagerly for our adoption as sons, the redemption of our body. For in hope we have been saved, but hope that is seen is not hope; for who hopes for what he already sees? But if we hope for what we do not see, with *perseverance{patience} we wait eagerly for it.

Hebrews 10:35-37    So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded. *Patient endurance is what you need now, so you will continue to do God’s will. Then you will receive all that He has promised. FOR YET IN A VERY LITTLE WHILE, HE WHO IS COMING WILL COME, AND WILL NOT DELAY.

Romans 5:1-5 AMP THEREFORE, SINCE we are justified (acquitted, declared righteous, and given a right standing with God) through faith, let us [grasp the fact that we] have [the peace of reconciliation to hold and to enjoy] peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One).
2Through Him also we have [our] access (entrance, introduction) by faith into this grace (state of God’s favor) in which we [firmly and safely] stand. And let us rejoice and exult in our hope of experiencing and enjoying the glory of God.
3Moreover [let us also be full of joy now!] let us exult and triumph in our troubles and rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that pressure and affliction and hardship produce patient and unswerving endurance.
4And endurance (fortitude) develops maturity of character (approved faith and tried integrity). And character [of this sort] produces [the habit of] joyful and confident hope of eternal salvation.
5Such hope never disappoints or deludes or shames us, for God’s love has been poured out in our hearts through the Holy Spirit Who has been given to us.

Persist

February 24, 2009

Luke 18:1 
One day Jesus told his disciples a story to illustrate their need for
constant prayer and to show them that they must never give up!

PersistFlower

By God’s hand a wildflower can persist and come up in an infinitesimal crack in the concrete. We also by His hand, can come up from the depths of what seem like impossible circumstances and bloom through the concrete of the hardest times, if we persist in prayer and don’t give up!

Luke 11:8    I tell you, even though he will not get up and give him anything because he is his friend, yet because of his persistence he will get up and give him as much as he needs.

From Netbible:   http://net.bible.org/verse.php?book=Luk&chapter=11&verse=8
Persistence here refers to a combination of ideas, a boldness or audacity that persists over time. Some translate the term shamelessness or importunity. It’s a refusal to give up or let go.

Hebrews 10:35-37 (NLT)   So do not throw away this confident trust in the Lord. Remember the great reward it brings you! Patient endurance is what you need now, so that you will continue to do God’s will. Then you will receive all that He has promised. For in just a little while, the Coming One will come and not delay.

Persist! Never give up!

Do not be afraid any longer, only believe. –Mk 5:36

Do not throw away your confident trust in the Lord Jesus
For it brings great reward.

Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need. –Heb 4:16

Patient endurance is what is needed now.

Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful. –Heb 10:23

Do not give up or let go of any of the Lords promises 
In just a little while, the Coming One will come and not delay
Persist and receive all that He has promised.
