Allow perseverance to finish its work, so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him.James1:4

Jacob faced a crisis in his life at  Peniel and  God allowed Jacobs trouble to humble himself for God .

The night he wrestled with God he came to the place of making a humble appeal to God and God took ahold of him as never before. Jacobs faith in God had expanded as he grew closer to God.

So Jacob called the place Peniel, saying, "It is because I saw God face to face, and yet my life was spared Gen.32:30

David was a man of God but was disciplined for many long years to realize the power and faithfulness of his  God.

"Go and say to David, 'This is what the LORD says: I will give you three choices. Choose one of these punishments, and I will inflict it on you.'" 2 Sam.24:12

In those years he grew up in  faith and godliness  which he needed as his career to become the king of Israel.

Paul was constantly placed in difficult circumstances and nothing else could ever have taught him the full meaning of "My grace is sufficient for me"

 

But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. 2 Cor.12:9

 So many other great man of God faced great difficulties and hindrances in their life when God was preparing them for some great job as they learned to depend on God so God could use them as to  carry  out his plans.

 We often face difficulties and obstacles as challenges to our faith ,when we are confronted with all those hindrances in our life  and we are to recognize them as vessels for our faith   and how to depend on the complete sufficiency of Jesus.

As we walk through this life we all will be tested ,sometimes we have to wait and realize that perseverance must be finishing our work of how to completely trust Jesus .

I was scared for many months, seeing evil spirits in my house, on my clothing and appearing in all my family pictures. I had no one to talk to about it and no one believed me. I had my house blessed thinking they would go away but they didn't. it was me who needed to repent and ask for forgiveness.. I was drinking a lot and I got depressed and started cutting . then I moved on to even harder drugs trying to numb the pain of depression. then all of a sudden I got too scared of being attacked by these evil things so I repented and Jesus took them away. I had always repented but I would go back to my old ways . so  I think Jesus got angry and sent them to put me back where he wanted me, because I had just got married and all of a sudden all of these demons were appearing on walls and everything. Thank  you Jesus for taking them away. This was definitely the most difficult time in my life. But I learned to never doubt our Lord Jesus Christ.

Hello Aramirez:)

Thank you for sharing your testimony, God is so good and He loves us so much, are you a born again Christian? 

Only In Him we are safe, He bought us with His precious blood!

 

 I waited patiently for the LORD; And He inclined to me and heard my cry. 2He brought me up out of the pit of destruction, out of the miry clay, And He set my feet upon a rock making my footsteps firm. 3He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God; Many will see and fear And will trust in the LORD.…Ps.40:2
