Think not every hardship is come to try you, My children. Lessons are hidden in the trials of My people, as you see in My holy Word.

You must be prepared for what is coming, and many of you shall experience hardships then I am preparing you for now. Your greatest preparation is always My Word, however. Hardships often cause you to seek in My Word when you would not otherwise, and your faith increases as you see My promises fulfilled in your life. In this way are you prepared for the more difficult times ahead.

Seek Me in My Word.

NOTE: Though hardships and trials are both conditions of suffering, the reason for the condition is different. A trial is specifically to “try” or prove something, like in a court – generally your faith. Hardship – enduring grievous circumstances and suffering in them, produces toughness to those same types of circumstances in the future.

1 Peter 5:10  But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you.

James 1:12  Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him.

Romans 12:12  Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer;

John 16:33  These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.


  1. I am going through trouble now. God reminded me of a problem I have, when I asked him to show me hidden sin. He said I have the heart of a prostitute. This is because of my guilt and shame I never entrusted Jesus to take's built up over the years. People have treated me like a prostitute... Mostly emotionally. I've been spoken down to, and assumed to have my needs left unmet for the rest of my life.

    God gave me a vision for this year and the rest of my life, and that I was going to be happy. I just felt and saw what he meant about my felt like satisfaction. But I've been doubting that I deserve it...even though I know it's God's will to meet his children's needs.

    So God got serious with me needing to get healing. I am now being humiliated by nearly everybody I know/don't know. I was trying to call an advocacy group to help but I realized this is a spiritual problem... And if I made it legal I'd just be a looser.

    Please pray for me. I'm not excited about this period of recovery and nourishment God is about to put me into. Mostly because I doubt I can be fully healed. But I know in my mind God can heal anybody. I'm only excited about this because I want to be in a position to be able adopt one day. I want to help children who are unwanted because of behavior or health issues. I want to help them find healing because I know how hard it is to feel ruined with your whole life ahead of you. It's so sad. Also because I would love to have a family. My desire is to see healing of everyone in my family. I don't want a perfect family...I want a family that becomes perfect through Christ.

    I do feel like I'm under demonic attack right now...and it's partly because of my prostitute heart issue. It's making me a magnet for the wrong type of attention... And it's keeping me away from God's cleansing. I want to get free now...I'm just afraid. You know how when you've been trapped so long you are afraid it will destroy you just getting free? The enemy keeps telling me I'm worthless and all these other lies. I've tried fighting back with the Word but it's hard when I'm holding onto guilt from my past.

  2. PRAYING for you A, Try Fasting and Praying as that will strengthen you spiritually and GOD then knows that you are really seeking Him. We have to give of ourselves to GOD as He gave His Only Begotten Son to us... XXX

  3. Hi A,

    You are my precious sister in the Lord and I just want to encourage you to stand up and keep trying.

    Condemnation does not come from the Lord and fear is a spirit. Rebuke the enemy and do not give power to those thoughts. You are an overcomer by the blood of the Lamb.

    "For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind."
    2 Timothy 1:7

    "Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things."
    Philippians 4:8

    "But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes we are healed." Isaiah 53:5

    Finally, remember who you are - - a daughter of the King!

    I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;[b]
    Marvelous are Your works,
    And that my soul knows very well. Psalm 139:14

  4. I humbly ask for your prayers for my family especially my oldest sister for salvation and mercy! Please there was something said that just shows how little she belives or view life..idk. Please i would appreciate it may the Lord Jesus himself bless you all who pray. Thank you🌸

  5. Psalm 32:
    Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven,
    Whose sin is covered.
    2 Blessed is the man to whom the Lord does not impute iniquity,
    And in whose spirit there is no deceit.
    3 When I kept silent, my bones grew old
    Through my groaning all the day long.
    4 For day and night Your hand was heavy upon me;
    My vitality was turned into the drought of summer. Selah
    5 I acknowledged my sin to You,
    And my iniquity I have not hidden.
    I said, “I will confess my transgressions to the Lord,”
    And You forgave the iniquity of my sin.

  6. I want to thank everyone for encouraging me. The encouragement and Bible verse are really helping me to get back on track. I am praying for all of you, and Maria's sister. I'm praying for light to shine into the darkness. God bless you.
