    Anyway one has to be very strong to cotninue believing in God despite severe sufferings, it is not an easy thing and those who have not come across real suffering usually take things for granted. I think the grace of God is really needed for those who have had real temptations in life in order to cotninue trusting in God and spiritual consolation in a very special way.

    Chapter 1 vs 4 is the text that I like most.It is the confirmation that God really keeps His promises and He is always on time and He is a God of all reaches Gold and silver that is why He said the children of Israel must be give them. I God opens the doors for you no one can close it.In Exodus 12 vs 35 He told Moses to tell Israelites to go to the Egyptians to ask for Gold, silver and all precious things. This proves that we are reach in Christ Jesus our Father is the owner of all reaches Gold and silver Hagayi 2 Vs 8. I am blessed and I am reach even if I do not have something at the moment but I know that if it is the right time God will grant me all that I deserve to have in Jesus name.That is the reason why I do not preach prosperity but Jesus and Him being crucified and risen from the dead seated at the right hand of God. I do not feel intimidated to see someone prospers I know my season is coming to obtain the reaches even in glory. I preach forgiveness from sin, and the kingdom of God then everything which is good follows. Thank God for Jesus.
