To gain a better understanding of this verse I have enrolled in karate training. I learned how to fight. I learned loyalty towards my instructors and their goal for my betterment. I learned to endure the repetitions and the injuries. I learned that God is with me wherever I go.

Suffering is a part of life when it come to living for Christ Jesus. Jesus suffer and die for my sin so why can 't I suffer for my own sin that I commit. As a soilder of Jesus Christ we have the faith and the power to handle what come our way. The word says: I can do all things through Christ who straingten me.

To become a soldier, we must first go to booth camp. We have to practice and practice for the fight. God will never throw us in a fight we can 't handle. He will reward us with the whole armore of God. Amen

God at times disciplines me through a trial. God can be depended upon. He may be asking me, can I depend on your faith? He knows the answer but He wants me to realize that my faith is strong and growing stronger as He molds me to a certainty in a life of faith.


Deborah's comment on 2013-12-14 08:40:00:

Whatever is hard for me such as suffering,affliction or trial ,I can endure it as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. As a soldier I can put on the whole armor of God (sword of the Spirit which is the Word of God,breastplate of righteousness,shield of faith, helmet of salvation
feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace...)
