 When Trials Persist

Scripture Passage:  The Book of Job

The persistence of the devil will disturb you when hard times come.

Satan's attacks are not primarily about you and might not be about you at all.

Satan's attacks work powerfully against us.

Job = Ground Zero in Human Form

The knowledge of God's sovereignty over trials doesn't always take away the pain of living through trials. 
But He turned and said to Peter, “Get behind Me, Satan! You are a stumbling block to Me; for you are not setting your mind on God’s interests, but man’s.” - Matthew 16:23
The greater the pain, the more potential for glory.

Don't waist your pain.

The perspective of a disciple will deliver you.

But he said to her, “You speak as one of the foolish women speaks. Shall we indeed accept good from God and not accept adversity?” In all this Job did not sin with his lips. - Job 2:10

Scripture Passage:  Matthew 6:25-34
The following are my notes taken during my pastor's sermon.

Jesus Said, "Don't Worry!"

For this reason I say to you, do not be worried about your life, as to what you will eat or what you will drink; nor for your body, as to what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing?  Look at the birds of the air, that they do not sow, nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not worth much more than they?  And who of you by being worried can add a single hour to his life?  And why are you worried about clothing? Observe how the lilies of the field grow; they do not toil nor do they spin,  yet I say to you that not even Solomon in all his glory clothed himself like one of these.  But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the furnace, will He not much more clothe you? You of little faith!  Do not worry then, saying, ‘What will we eat?’ or ‘What will we drink?’ or ‘What will we wear for clothing?’  For the Gentiles eagerly seek all these things; for your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.
So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. - Matthew 6:25-34
It is a sin to worry.  
Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. - Philippians 4:6

1.  Look at the birds.
2.  Look at the flowers.
3.  Look at your heart.

Seek God first.

We are to live one day at a time.

We crucify today between two trees:  yesterday and tomorrow.

We can only have ONE Master.

He came to His own, and those who were His own did not receive Him.  But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name. - John 1:11-12
