What Is In Our Heart’s Often Comes Out Under Pressure!

Either, Love, Kindness, preferring others, serving others, Gracious speech,

Or Bitterness, Self first, Frustration, Exasperation, Anger, corrupt speech.

And where do they come from? Our Heart! -“What you say flows from what is in your heart.”-{ Luke 6:45}

Our RESPONSE to Circumstances reveal a lot about…us…to …us! Where our responses are not God honoring, Thank Him, He has shown us what is in us and that you and I can confess our sin to Him and turn from it to Him and…

Did you know that Paul once said concerning the difficult circumstances he and his companions had encountered was for a Divine Purpose and their Spiritual well being?

2 Cor 1:8-9 -“We do not want you to be uninformed, brothers and sisters, about the troubles we experienced in the province of Asia. We were under great pressure, far beyond our ability to endure, so that we despaired of life itself. Indeed, we felt we had received the sentence of death. But this happened that we might not rely on ourselves BUT on God, who raises the dead.”

A Good prayer is to ask Him to work in us so that “Christ Is Formed In YOU.”-{Gal 4:19}…CONFIDENT that He assures us “He who began a good work IN YOU will complete it until the day of Christ… and God is at work IN YOU both to Give you the DESIRE and ABILITY … FOR… HIS Good Pleasure.”-{Read Phil 1:6; 2:13}. And part of Christ being formed in us is that we would “…no longer rely on ourselves But on God who raises the dead!” And He changes us from the inside…IN our Heart’s. We need to be being changed at the very core of our being in our attitudes, words, actions, motivations, responses, to be Christlike not like our old lost, unloving selves, apart from Christ!

God uses circumstances …

  1. Sometimes God uses circumstances to reveal what is in us -{Read Luke 6:45}
  2. Sometimes God uses circumstances to reveal our self reliance -{ 2 Cor 1:8}
  3. Sometimes God uses circumstances to teach us to rely on Him!-{2 Cor 1:9}

THANK HIM, You can begin afresh…The difficulties you are encountering can be part of the “ALL THINGS ” He is working out for “Good” in your life and my life to conform us to the image of Christ- and this happens as we submit and depend upon Him…including in our circumstances! -{Rom 8:28-29}.
