Strength From Weakness
Gain From Loss

But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned - Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak then am I strong But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ 2 Co 2:142Co 12:10 Php 3:7

In our society there are generally two lines of thinking, Secularism, the wisdom of man, and Sanctified, the wisdom of God. 1Pe 3:15

Which of the two influences your thinking? For Instance, when it comes to trials what say ye of them, Friend or Foe? Spurgeon said, “Feebleness educates faith, brings God near, and wins glory for His Name.”


Think of it for a minute, What kind of God would choose to bring about Strength from Weakness, Honor from Humility, Gain from Loss, Power from Meekness, Life from Death, Fullness from Lack, Peace from Calamity, and Joy from Pain? Only a God who truly loves and cares for us, that’s WHO.

Yet the world cannot receive such things. Such talk would be foolishness to their ears and foreign to their lips. Even in some circles of “Christendom” this type of “thinking” would be labeled heresy and disregarded altogether.

But if we are going to have any kind of success in this life and not be caught off guard then we must come to understand that God’s purpose and plan for our lives far outweighs the difficulty or the trial itself. As believers we can welcome trouble with open arms because God promises to bring good out of it. No trial that we are called upon to go through will ever fall to the ground.[Rom 8:28,29]

James Chapter one says;
“When all kinds of trials and temptations crowd into your lives, my brothers, don’t resent them as intruders, but WELCOME them as friends. Realize that they come to test your faith and to produce the quality of endurance. And if in the process, any of you does not know how to meet any particular problem he has only to ask God – who gives generously to all men without making them feel foolish or guilty.”
NTME Philips

Have you asked yourself lately, “Why This? I don’t understand what it is I’m going through” THEN GO TO GOD!. He will enlighten you. And if in the process you have to wait for “a season” before His will is revealed, then know this that He will make all grace abound. “And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, establish, and strengthen you.”
1Peter 5:10 RSV

Are You Counting Your Losses, Gains For The Kingdom Of God? Can You Ever Truly Loose What’s Not Yours In The First Place?
THINK ON THESE THINGS
ACT ON THESE THINGS
