The Things We Go Through

1 Peter 4:12-13 (KJV)

12 Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is

to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you:

13 But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ's sufferings;

that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with

exceeding joy.

MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS

HAVE YOU EVER FOUND YOURSELF

SAYING IF IT`S NOT ONE THING IT`S

ANOTHER

HAVE YOU EVER FOUND YOURSELF DOING THE RIGHT THING

LIVING THE RIGHT WAY

DON`T BOTHER NOBODY

MIND YOUR OWN BUSSINESS

STRIVE TO HAVE A GOOD NAME

A GOOD REPUTATION

AND SOMETIME WE BEGAN TO WONDER

IS THERE LIGHT AT THE END OF THE

TUNNEL

(ANYODY EVER WALK DOWN THAT STREET )

BUT IT`S IMPORTANT THAT WE AS CHILDREN OF GOD UNDERSTAND

THAT WHERE THE WILL OF GOD TAKES US

THE GRACE OF GOD WILL PROTECT US

IN OTHER WORDS

IT`S NOT SOMETHING THAT HAPPENS

ONLY TO YOU BUT CHRIST PROMISED

SUFFERING

NOTICE WHAT PETER SAYS IN THE TEXT

"Beloved [In other words, saved folks, born

again people of God], think it not

strange concerning the fiery trials which is to try

you."

AND WHAT HE IS TELLING US IS – DON`T

GET UPSET WHEN THINGS HAPPENS

BECAUSE NOT ONLY IS IT HAPPENING TO

YOU

BUT IT`S HAPPENING TO OTHERS AS WELL

BUT HE SAYS ---BUT REJOICE

NOW WHENEVER YOU SEE THE PREFIX

RE

IT MEANS TO DO AGAIN

WHAT YA SAYING PETER

WHITE TELL THEM

BEFORE THEY WAS GOING THROUGH THE DARK DAYS AND LONELY NIGHTS

BEFORE THEY RECEIVED THE BAD NEWS

FROM THE DOCTOR

THEY NEED TO GO BACK AND RE-DO WHAT THEY WAS DOING BEFORE THE DARK DAYS -LONELY NIGHTS

AND BAD DOCTOR REPORT SHOWED UP AT THERE

DOOR STEP

WHAT YA SAYING PETER

WHITE TELL THEM THEY NEED GO BACK AND REJOICE AND GIVE GOD SOME PRAISE

NOW I NEED TO TELL YOU

YOU CAN`T RE DO WHAT YOU HAVE NEVER DONE

BECAUSE IT`S IMPOSSIBLE TO REJOICE IF YOU DON`T HAVE JOY

BECAUSE JOY DOES NOT MEAN HAPPINESS

BUT JOY IS SOMETHING THAT WE ARE

IT`S NOT SOMETHING THAT WE ARE TRYING TO DO

AND IT SURE NOT BASED ON THE TYPE OF INSTRUMENT BEING PLAYED

OR THE SONG THAT IS BEING SONG

OR HOW GOOD YOU CAN DANCE OR

SHOUT

BUT JOY IS A STATE OF BEING

IN OTHER WORD

JOY IS BASED ON WHOMS YOU ARE AND WHO`S YOU ARE

IN OTHER WORDS IF YOU GOT JESUS

AS LORD OF LORDS AND KINGS OF YOUR LIFE

IF YOU KNOW HIM AS THE LILY OF THE VALLEY YOUR BRIGHT AND MORNING STAR

THE APPLE OF GOD`S EYE WHO IS FULL OF GRACE AND TRUTH

YOU GOT JOY

NOTICE—NOTICE ---NOTICE

WHY PETER SAYS RE-DO WHAT WE WAS DOING BEFORE THE TRIAL SHOWED UP

BECAUSE EVERYTHING OF VALUE MUST BE TESTED TO PROVE IT`S WORTH

YOU SEE MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS

A SOLDIER IS TESTED BY THE BATTLE A STUDENT IS TESTED BY THE EXAMINATION TEST

AND WE AS CHILDREN OF GOD ARE TESTED BY OUR TRIALS

AND THE TRIALS ARE NOT MEANT TO BREAK US

BUT TO MAKE US

THEY ARE NOT MEANT TO DESTROY US

BUT TO DEVELOP AND STRENGHTEN US

CAN I BORROW A SKINNY MINUTE AND TELL YOU WHAT I`M TALKING ABOUT

A TREE THAT IS SAFE TO CLIMB IS ONE THAT HAS BEEN TESTED BY STRONG WINDS

AND GOD ALLOWS THE STRONG WINDS & TRIALS

TO BLOW IN OUR LIFE

TO MAKE US MORE MATURE AND LOYAL CHRISTIANS

YOU SEE

NOAH WAS TESTED BY THE FLOOD

JOSEPH WAS TESTED IN A EGYPTIAN PRISON

MOSES WAS TESTED BY THE RED SEA

JOSHUA WAS TESTED BY THE WALLS OF

JERICHO

AND JUST AS A WHETSTONE SHARPEN AN AXE

OUR TRIALS SHARPENS OUR FAITH IN GOD

JUST LIKE A PLOW HELPS PREPARE THE SOIL FOR PLANTING

TRIALS PREPARE US TO BE USE IN A MIGHTY WAY BY GOD

JUST LIKE A POLISHING WHEEL GIVES THE DIAMOND IT`S VALUE

TRIALS GIVES BEAUTY TO A CHILD OF GOD

JUST AS A SURGEONS KNIFE CUTS AWAY THE DISEASED FLSEH

TRIALS HELPS US REMOVE THINGS IN

OUR LIFE WHICH DISHONOR GOD

JUST LIKE BOILING WATER BRINGS OUT

THE FLAVOR IN TEA

TRIALS BRING OUT THE SPIRITUAL BEAUTY IN US

WHAT ARE YOU TELLING US HERE PETER

TELL THEM IN THIS LIFE WE ALL HAVE

TO SUFFER TRIALS AND TRIBULATIONS

WE ALL HAVE TO GO THROUGH SOME THINGS

BUT WE MUST REMEMBER TO RE—DO

WHAT WE WAS DOING BEFORE THE TRIAL CAME

AND THAT’S REJOICE

AND THE REASON WE CAN REJOICE IS WE GOT JESUS

OUR JOY IN SORROW

OUR HOPE FOR TOMORROW

A ROCK IN A WEARY LAND

A SHELTER IN THE MIDIST OF A STORM

BUT THE REAL REASON WE CAN REJOICE IS

ONE DAY AROUND THE THRONE IN GLORY
