Hi people!! How's the week going.This post was originally scheduled for last week but we all know the fuel and light situation that raged through last week. Nevertheless am just gonna post it like that!!!

The heat right now in lag is killing... Even NEPA ,PHCN, DISCOS and GENCOS or whatever their power supply company is called are not even cooperating. Which means, we have to spend quite some cash in buying the so very expensive fuel... That's even if you t get fuel to buy. Anyways , it is well o. God will help Naija.

I downloaded this wonderful book on Mannareserve and started reading . A timely message struck a cord in my spirit as I read so I decided to share. I pray it will encourage you as much as it did me.



EXCERPT FROM "WHEN GOD IS SILENT"


Don't Cast Away Your Confidence

Hebrews 10:35-36 says,
Therefore do not cast away your confidence, which
has great reward. For you have need of endurance, so
that after you have done the will of God, you may receive
the promise.

Patience will work experience and experience is a
testimony, something you can tell others about. When
you are in a trial, rather than crying, “Lord, when is this
going to be over? When am I going to be delivered from this
situation?" Why don't you take the attitude that you are
building a testimony? Think about how testifying about
how God delivered you from your trial will put a damper
on the devil's attempt to bring discouragement and
defeat.

I can guarantee you are not the only person being
confronted by the problem you are facing. There are
hundreds of thousands experiencing the same trial and
God will see to it that one day you will cross the paths of
some of those people to testify about what God did to
bring you through!

Where does confidence come from and what is
confidence based upon? Experience. Because God has
come through so many times, I have confidence in Him.
This passage says not to cast that confidence away for
something momentary. Don't throw away what you do
know for some sudden state of “I don't know what to do."
Don't throw away what you do know for what you don't
know. Cast not away your confidence because God has
been so wonderful and faithful through the years.

Unfortunately, many Christians do cast away their
confidence. Don't throw away all of your testimonies for
some momentary thing you cannot explain. Don't allow
Satan to whisper in your ear that everything you have
believed has been wrong, that God doesn't exist or that
God can't help you and doesn't care when in reality He
does care.

Hebrews 10:36: (NKJV)
For you have need of endurance (patience), so that
after you have done the will of God, you may receive the
promise.
This passage doesn't mention how long after you have
done the will of God you will receive the promise, but it
says you will receive it! And it doesn't say if you're
questioning God about something you don't understand
that He is obligated to answer you immediately; it simply
he will answer.
