Allowing GOD to Work in your Spirit
2 Peter 3:14 Therefore, beloved, looking forward to these things, be diligent to be found by Him in peace, without spot and blameless; 15 and consider that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation—as also our beloved brother Paul, according to the wisdom given to him, has written to you, 16 as also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things, in which are some things hard to understand, which untaught and unstable people twist to their own destruction, as they do also the rest of the Scriptures.17 You therefore, beloved, since you know this beforehand, beware lest you also fall from your own steadfastness, being led away with the error of the wicked; 18 but grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory both now and forever. Amen.

For instance, when Moses was a great leader in the Egyptian culture yet he was stripped and banished from the land he knew to go to the mountains where he heard the voice of God in the burning bush which lead him to be a great leader of God’s people. Another instance in the word of God is JOB who was a man that praise we God yet he faced strong adversities and in spite of how it looked losing everything he owned and loved he still held strong to his faith and continued in patience to praise our father in heaven!
