Growing stronger, no.2 Hidden fortune

  1. 1. “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose” (Romans 8:28 KJV). In apparent misfortune, the Lord has hidden a fortune. God has concealed His riches in the night. Ye fearful saints, Fresh courage take. The clouds ye so much dread Are big with mercy, and shall break In blessings on your head! Oww! Craakk! Wirrr! Wirrr! Wirrr! LIFELINE AMBULANCE SERVICE Growing Stronger, No. 2 Hidden Fortune
  2. 2. What a calamity it must have appeared to the Apostle Paul when he was stopped in his missionary career, and imprisoned at Rome. Out of his captivity, there came glorious letters to the early churches, which have guided and cheered countless people over the centuries. But the misfortune was only the shrine of a larger fortune.The Apostle wrote with great jubilation- His witnessing appeared to be confined, and his activities paralysed. ‘The things that happened unto me have turned out rather for the furtherance of the Gospel!’ See this letter gets to the church in Philippi! For by Grace... ...are ye saved... ...Through Faith... is the gift of God!
  3. 3. Remember what happened to Paul and so many other outstanding people in the Bible who initially experienced what seemed like a setback, and remember that what we call disappointment or disaster may contain a jewel from heaven. Are you experiencing a disappointment or an extremely difficult situation? Commit the disappointment or difficulty to God in prayer and trust Him to turn it into something beneficial. It’s beautiful, Moira. I Never knew ye could write poetry! I didn’t either, Mum, until I had this accident! Ye know that I love to dance, Lord, But I trust that Ye must have a good reason... You probably haven't been taken to jail, but it still feels unpleasant. S&S link: Christian Life and Faith: Biblical and Christian Foundation: Overcoming Obstacles-2a Adapted from the writings of J.
