Good morning! Grace and peace to you in abundance from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. Today we are discussing two definitions in God's word. The definition of genuine and proved. 1 Peter 1v7 These have come so that your faith-of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire-may be proved genuine and may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Chris is revealed.
As we have discussed many times before we all have suffering and trails in our lives, some worse than others. Why are these given to us when we have given our lives to Jesus. We give ourselves to Him for His protection and His divine intervention to protect us during our life so why do we still suffer trails of many kinds? We who are in Jesus Christ suffer differently and we have different tears when we suffer because we have a person within us that truly does comfort us, we have tears of relief, tears of comfort because He wipes our tears. We cry to our Father and He comes to our aid. Because of our trails we know the real given gift of faith from God. We are shielded by God's true power living in us and it is proven real and genuine during our trails. This is a faith that He can only give us and it is for Him to be proven genuine in our own lives so others will believe He is real. We have a different view of our suffering because we have a real joy put into our hearts by the love of God caring and comforting us, He is real and our faith is proven genuine because of what He gives us within ourselves is His inexpressible and glorious joy! This proof or has to be proven this faith is genuine is for our benefit as well as others. God already knows if it is genuine or not. The trail is for us to prove to ourselves what He has given us is real as well to prove to others when they consider the outcome of our lives.(Hebrews 13v7 Remember your leaders, who spoke the word of God to you. Consider the outcome of their way of life and imitate their faith.) We do not imitate their lives we all have different lives God lives through each of us but we should always have a desire to imitate their faith because it is proven genuine. This trail is for our benefit of knowing if we truly have faith in God giving us all we need with the gift of Himself living through us or are we living as though we do and this trail will reveal we have been living falsely. If you have not received Him truly has your Savior receive Him now. How we respond to our trails will reveal to us if our faith is real and been given to us by God because of the shield of His power that guards our heart and the inexpressible joy we are experiencing through this trail. If we are suffering in the natural human nature and nothing in us is changing God says your faith in Him is not real it is false and you need to turn to Him in your darkness and receive His light of peace, love, hope and joy that keeps you in Him now and forever. He is real and what He gives you of Himself is real and genuine! Our natural nature does not experience trails and hardships like the children of God do because they do not have the faith He gives and His power to prove everything He gives of himself is real! If you are not experiencing Him with this glorious relationship we can have with Him through His Son then go to the cross and receive Him now and forever so you can prove your faith He has given to you is genuine because of the joy that never leaves your heart He has given you along with His hope that never disappoints. Praise Him and worship Him for all His mighty works He does within us, through us and all around us to see!Tell Him now you want to receive His love and His grace and He can have your natural sinful nature that keeps you from having this glorious relationship that He proves is genuine and real through yourself changing along with your life through all of its trails and hardships! When God is for us who and what can separate us from the real and genuine faith God gives us by His power of love in us changing us everyday. (Ephesians 3v16 I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith.) Read 1 Peter 1 and Hebrews 11. I love you with His genuine love, faith and hope that He has given me for you!
