When life does not go the way you want. When disappointments and hurt of heart enter. You may have been told by some “well meaning” person or people, “God wont let that happen to you”…or, “God will work it out just the way you want,” and then it doesn’t. Then What? The temptations come to your mind, such as… succumb to despair? Doubt God cares for you,… doubt He loves you? Choose bitterness? Throw in the towel? Accuse Him that He didn‘t come through as your “well meaning” friend say He would? Your “well meaning” friend was that, “well meaning…” but they didn’t speak for Him!

Instead, Look at what God does Promise for you, THREE CERTAINTIES for you in those times of difficulties!

PROMISE 1“By His divine power, God has given us everything we need for living a godly life. We have received all of this by coming to know Him, the one who called us to Himself by means of His marvelous glory and excellence. And because of His glory and excellence, He has given us great and precious promises. These are the promises that enable you to share his divine nature and escape the world’s corruption caused by human desires. ” -{2 Peter 1:3-4 NLT}.

God has given you the POWER to Respond and Live Godly even when your heart is broken, you have been betrayed, You have THIS PROMISE FROM GOD- YOU CAN RESPOND AND CHOOSE attitudes and act by act to Live Godly and He has gifted you His magnificent PROMISES to encourage and empower you to live out this life and in doing so express love to Him! {John 13:35; Phil 2:13}

PROMISE 2-No temptation has overtaken you but such as is common to man; and God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will provide the way of escape also, so that you will be able to endure it.”={1 Cor 10:13}

Sometimes you can “wrongly think” that the Temptation you are facing, that no one else understands or has gone through it.

A.- You Are Not The Only One; It’s not Unique to you. It’s not only You. It is “common,” others too have experienced it.

B.- God is Faithful.  Faithful to impart you the pathway, power, provision in “THE” specific temptation you encounter He will provide”THE” specific way to be able to endure SO YOU OR I DO NOT HAVE TO SIN WHEN TEMPTED.

C.- He will Provide “The” way of escape for you! The word “escape” was used of an army trapped, surrounded it seemed and seeing a specific opening to escape, exit. God likewise always has “the” specific way for you to escape, so you can “endure” and not yield to sinning against Him.

PROMISE 3 “And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose. “-{Romans 8:28}.

Even this very “thing” you are encountering God exclusively guarantees for those who love Him and are the called- He promises He will work it all out for good ultimately! “Work together,” is where we get the word “synergy” from. The using all the bits and pieces to one end, bringing them together so that they  work for “good,” for the child of God. This promises is exclusive to those who “Love God ” and are “the called.” The “good” ultimately is conforming us to the image of Christ-{Rom 8:29} . So whatever youa re going through, whatever the “thing” is, He is working all things including this thing out for your “good,” because you “Love God” and are “called,” of Him!

3 CERTAINTIES- Promises, in Your Temptations, Time of Difficulties!

Re-read them… and maybe cut and paste and place in your Bible or somewhere you can recall for yourself and able to share with OTHERS in their time of need. There Is Hope in HIS promises for you in time of temptation, difficulties!

You have THREE CERTAINTIES. God Himself PROMISES you.

Sometimes “well meaning” friends, can add to the confusion, hurt, by expressing what they “desire” and “wish for” but at times can be taking His Name in vain by ascribing to Him what is not guaranteed. This is not a condemnation but an observation.

Like, the “well meaning friend” that may say the spouse will not leave you or they will come back and then when they don’t the hurt and confusion and heartache left behind. The child that does not get well ,and other such hurts but what we do know from His Word are these THREE PRECIOUS CERTAINTIES to encourage them that they can honor God in their responses even through tears they can triumph and persevere and glorify God…. He sometimes saves us from our troubles, He sometimes Gives us Grace to sustain us in our troubles… but know He does not promise us we will be kept from hurt, temptations, difficulties, troubles, BUT He does…

PROMISE us we will have Power to Live Godly in our responses and choices through His encouraging and empowering Promises from His Word! He promises He will provide for us in times of temptations where we do not have to yield to temptation and sin against God!

We can confidently say He will take “all things” and work them for “good” in maturing us in Christ-likness and honoring Him!

Note the Three Promises of Hope… and be ready to share them with others… what they can know for CERTAIN in times of Difficulties as recorded in HIS WORD!

THREE PROMISES OF HOPE! The Biblical meaning of Hope is speaking of “certainty.” The above three Promises are Three Certainties. He Stands Behind His Promises of Hope!-😀
