HAVE YOU DIED?

There are certain certainties of life and one amongst many is difficult and challenging times, trials and temptations. It is right, expected and “easy” to have faith in God for challenges that are impossible to surmount and to still believe God for directions on issues that “seems” to be within our sphere of control and all ends well. There are smiles, laughs and some just simply gloss over it like “that’s how life works”, but there are times when this challenges are overwhelming in size, intensity or numerouscity and God chooses not to answer nor intervene to help especially when the issues are dire and life threatening as human knowledge, wisdom and help have failed.
Has this situation ever happened in your life? if it has not, then get prepared because it will. This kind of situation reveals two kinds of Believers, namely A and B. Believer A will get discouraged to keep praying and believing God and subsequently get angry and stop serving God, they will get frustrated and start seeking other alternatives to solving their issues. This is common with most Christians. WHY? The reason is found in the perception of Believer B.Then there is Believer B who will keep seeking God because of maturity in work and knowledge of HIM because he/she has come to know and accept “THAT UNTIL DEATH MEANS NOTHING ANYMORE AND PLEASURE HOLDS NO INTEREST”, he will never experience living and seeing the fullness of God.
Our value for Life and to live it to its fullest is robbing us of experiencing the fullness of God’s awesome presence and power. Until we embrace death in Christ Jesus as a fundamental and foundational truth in order to truly live to see HIS fullness…Revelations 12: 11 …”And they overcame him by the blood of the lamb and by the word of their testimony and they loved not their lives unto the death”
in the Book of Daniel 3:16…”Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-nego answered and said to the King, O Nebuchadnezzar, we are not careful to answer thee in this matter…If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace and he will deliver us out of thine hands, O King…But if not, be it known unto thee O King, that we will not serve thy god nor worship the golden image which thou has set up”. Death to them was the true means to live for God and they saw the awesome fullness and power of GOD.
So if you are discouraged, angry and frustrated because it seems God has not answered or is not answering, don’t despair, be prepared to rather die believing Jesus over what he has said over the challenge or the dire circumstance you find yourself in by His Word in the Bible.
You will be so shocked and completely overwhelmed to see how God will turn the tide around to your favor . Just keep holding on to Jesus.
