S. 2 Corinthians 2: 6-7 (MSG)
When we suffer for Jesus, it works out for your healing and salvation. If we are treated well, given a helping hand and encouraging word, that also works to your benefit, spurring you on, face forward, unflinching. Your hard times are also our hard times. When we see that you're just as willing to endure the hard times as to enjoy the good times, we know you're going to make it, no doubt about it.
O. When we rejoice in the hard times as well as the good times, becoming satisfied in BOTH seasons, that we know we are finally 'getting it'; understanding the Kingdom and willing to endure it all, selling out to God.
A. When I rejoice in both the good times and the bad times, THEN I will UNDERSTAND that it's all for working out my salvation here on Earth. REJOICING and being GLAD when BOTH blessings and trials come, in equal amounts of joy and being satiated in both seasons of my life, THEN I will know that I AM "going to make it, no doubt about it".
THIS IS MY SPIRITUAL GOAL:
TO BE SATISFIED IN BLESSINGS AND TRIALS...BECAUSE I'M WORKING OUT MY SALVATION THROUGH BOTH!
P. Father, I pray for clear understanding and full satisfaction as You bring blessings my way and allow trials to teach me. I pray for clear vision to see YOUR way in working out my salvation IN FULL SATISFACTION, here on this Earth....in this NOW Kingdom! Help my joy to be equalized in both blessings and trials, knowing that YOU ARE IN BOTH!
