Which One Comes From You?

josephsdailywalkwithjesus

  And not only this, but [with joy] let us exult in our sufferings and rejoice in our hardships, knowing that hardship (distress, pressure, trouble) produces patient endurance;  and endurance, proven character (spiritual maturity); and proven character, hope and confident assurance [of eternal salvation]. Romans 5:3-4 Holy Bible Amplified Version

When Jehovah assigns as difficult task for you to do are you obstinate, stomp your feet and say I refuse like a spoiled little brat? Even though He reasons with you with His Word, Christian Councilors and signs.

Or, if He directs you to stop doing something do you obstinacy refuse?

Beware.

Jehovah only does what is for your good. So, if you refuse to listen to Him, you will pay greatly in the long run.

Gods Precious Promises

My Hope Is In Thee

2-Peter_1-4

The Answer Is “No”

PRAYERS TO THE COSMOS

Dear God,

Be with me today.  Clear my confusion.  I think that clearing my confusion is a prayer in Your will.  And in mine, that of my Self, who is a part of You.

Amen.
