Paul's writing to the Roman believers is powerful though not easy to digest. Romans 5:3-5 (message) says, "There's more to come: We continue to shout our praise even when we're hemmed in with troubles, because we know how troubles can develop passionate patience in us, 4 and how that patience in turn forges the tempered steel of virtue, keeping us alert for whatever God will do next. 5 In alert expectancy such as this, we're never left feeling shortchanged. Quite the contrary - we can't round up enough containers to hold everything God generously pours into our lives through the Holy Spirit!" I love this, We are NEVER, EVER, EVER left shortchanged with our Heavenly Father.
It's the end part, "keeping us alert for whatever God will do next" and "we can't round up enough containers to hold everything God generously pours into our lives through the Holy Spirit!", that makes the hard first part, "because we know how troubles can develop passionate patience in us...", bearable. Along with this great scripture is a great prophetic word I received this week from some ministry colleagues, hope they bless you.
Bill Burns Prophetic Word:
I see where you have camped out. But, the cloud is moving. The cloud is going before you, so get up and go with Me, and you will have no regrets. For, I am leading you to a higher place than you have ever been. Your discernment in this season will grow greatly, and your ability to seek and find Me will rise to a place that you have never understood. You will know in your heart, without any doubt, that I am for you and with you. I am leading you, guiding you, protecting you, and I will provide for you. Healing will come. The healing waters will flow. The flow of the Spirit is increasing in these days. So, come into agreement with My purposes and come with Me on this journey, says the Lord.
Ask for wisdom in your current dilemma, and I will show you how to proceed. I will reveal pieces of the puzzle that you have not yet considered, says the Lord. Trust Me to take you in a proper progression so that nothing is lost, stolen or destroyed that is still of value. My ways always bring life and liberty to all concerned. Be strong and persevere.
