​Reaching Your Divine Appointment 

 Every Christian experiences a trial or tribulation. It can last for years depending on what God is preparing you for. These types of trials are situations where we do the right thing but end up in a long, drawn out battle.
 It seems like inspite of doing right, you get punished instead. It’s a test of your character. Your faith is tested and in the end God rewards you. When you get through the prison test, you have a strength and power that no one can shake.

 Christians are going to experience tribulation, the difference is who stands on the foundation during the trial that comes out a winner. Matthew 7:25-27 shows us how one house falls and the other stands. They both experience the same storm, but one had a firm foundation.

 You will have to suit up and put God’s armor on. The ones who get through it never give up. If you allow these situations to work through your life, it will do its purpose to create perseverance and character. No one can stop you from reaching your destiny and we are going to see that in the story of Joseph. It’s about building character and being able to go from dream to destiny. Everybody has a God given destiny, but you have to go through your tests to get there. Genesis 39:19-20.

 When you do right and suffer the wrong result, you just hold on because you are about to build some character into your life. Potipher’s wife had used Joseph’s coat to fabricate a lie about him. I’m sure by this time in Joseph’s young life he never wanted another coat.

 Has anyone ever lied on you? How are you going to respond to that lie about you? Romans 5:3-5. If you never have tribulation you never have perseverance. James 1:2-3.

 You see, trials produce patience. Patience is not just waiting, but waiting with contentment. Perseverance is fighting the battle while waiting with contentment. Because you see, perseverance in a long trial can take years to see a breakthrough.

 Joseph waited 13 years, Abraham’s test of faith took 25 years after God promised him a son. Moses waited 40 years. Paul waited 13 years while David waited 16 years to be King 

Blessings upon you all..

WHY ARE WE HERE? 

Ask a hundred people the meaning of life, and be prepared for a hundred different answers-each of them from a particular point of view. Several years ago, Life magazine queried readers for its holiday issue, asking, “Why are we here?” Listen to some of the replies. Jose Martinez, a taxi driver, said “We’re here to die, just live and die. I do some fishing, take my girl out, pay taxes, do a little reading, then get ready to drop dead. After you’re gone, other people will come. The only cure for the world’s illness is nuclear war-wipe everything out and start over.” Jason Gaes, a young cancer victim, saw it this way: “I think God made each of us for a different reason. If God gives you a great voice, maybe he wants you to sing. Or else, if God makes you seven feet tall, maybe he wants you to play for the Lakers or Celtics. I used to wonder why did God pick on me and give me cansur (sic). Maybe it was because he wanted me to be a dr (sic) who takes care of other kids with cansur (sic). 


Ordinary people answered. Famous people gave it a shot. Author and humorist Garrison Keillor offered this response: “To know and serve God, of course, is why we’re here, a clear truth that, like the nose on your face, is near at hand and easily discernible but can make you dizzy if you try and focus on it too hard. But a little faith will see you through.”

Jose observed life from the inside of a taxi cab. Jason saw it from the eyes of a child in a hospital cancer ward. Garrison Keillor’s perspective combines an evangelical, mid-western upbringing with a keen sense of humor. Saint Augustine said that the chief end of man-the main reason we are here-is to love God, and to glorify Him forever. John’s vision of Heaven in Revelation bears that out. We who are His will love, glorify and serve Him forever…reigning with Him in the glory that was His before the world began. With that end in mind, how should we then live?

His bondservants shall serve Him; and they shall see His face, and His name shall be on their foreheads.

CHANCE, CHOICE, OR CHOSEN-NESS? 

I thought I was a pacifist at one point in my life, but I know now that I am not. There is a time to stand for what is right and what is of God, even if others oppose it. The nation of Israel faced war early in her history when God commanded the Israelites to enter the promised land of Canaan and drive out its inhabitants. (I think some of God’s chosen people may have been surprised to find out that the land had inhabitants!)


They were commanded to fight in order to receive what God had already stated would be theirs, and they were instructed that the “clearing” of their land would not be accomplished in a single battle. “I will not drive them out before you in a single year…I will drive them out before you little by little, until you become fruitful and take possession of the land.” (Exodus 23:29-30)

Peace, too, is a great enterprise, and Solomon noted there was a time for it, as well. Peacemakers are not always heralded in the way victorious warriors are, but they are just as significant. They are quietly behind the scenes, working and praying for God’s truth and His justice to prevail. There is a time for war and a time for peace…a time for warriors and a time for peacemakers. 

Memory Verse 

ECCLESIASTES 3:1,8
There is an appointed time for everything…a time for war and a time for peace.
