Great Suffering

It is never easy to move on with life after going through a number of rejections. This becomes even worse when one does not have any support from friends or family members.

The sense of being lost can make you feel powerless.  It makes faith give way to fear and fear will bring doubts.  Doubts will take away every bit of strength that is left in you.  Weakness will kick in and make you drown in desperation.

Without Jesus you can do nothing: "Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me." John 15:4

That is why we want to coach you on what you have to do to abide in Jesus and thus bear fruits, fruits that will be the results of living by faith. To abide in Jesus means to let Him control your life. Make believe you are driving a car, and then do not observe the road signs.  Do not stop at the red traffics light, go over the speed limits. Then decide to stop the car, leave the driver's seat and get into the passenger's seat.  Allow God to drive the car for you. If you apply this in your life, If you let God guide you, if you decide to obey His words, then you will be abiding in Him.

Thus it will be impossible for your life to remain the way it is! It is impossible for you to keep on suffering. IMPOSSIBLE!

The great miracles and manifestations of God's power happened at times of great despair and suffering.  So, those of you going through overwhelming problems, facing great suffering ... this means that there is a great miracle waiting to happen in your life.

Let God manage your life. Be in Him.  Believe His words. Follow His advice. Obey Him and you will bear fruits, heavenly fruits!


God bless you
