A Formula for LIFE: Hope + Patience + Prayer

Greetings!

BlogFam - 
As we continue our series about HOPE, I came across this verse in Romans 12:12 that gives us the wisest "formula" we should use to face ANY situation in life - 

Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.

Now I do realize that this might not have always been our first response but after today, I believe that you will reconsider this formula for your current and future battles!  

REJOICE IN HOPE
Do you remember one of the definitions that we discovered for the word HOPE?  I hope so.  It is central to this series... it is that feeling that everything will work out for the best.  Hope is THAT kind of feeling and in the spirit it is a deep sense of knowing, trusting, and believing that EVERYTHING will work out for your good.  This is the reason we can REJOICE and take JOY over and over again in the midst of life's challenges.  God is good and God will work everything for our good and in our favor.  We can praise God in advance because when our hope is in the God of all that is good and the God who is working out everything for our good, we can be excited about what is to come... no matter how long it takes... and this brings us to the next part of the formula...

BE PATIENT IN TRIBULATION
Friends, you will play the waiting game in life.  Sometimes your wait may be longer than at other times as you wait on God to move on your behalf but keep waiting and BE PATIENT.  God has NOT forgotten about YOU.  Can I say that one more time?  God has NOT forgotten about YOU!!!  This is very good news!  We know that God is good and God will work everything out for our good but we have to wait.  And in our waiting we must BE PATIENT.  We must resolve in our own minds that God is worth waiting on  no matter what is happening in our lives!  GOD is worth waiting on!  I mean, just think about the times our God has waited on you to love, trust, obey, surrender, pray, praise, worship, listen, lead, show compassion, speak up against unrighteousness or injustice.  And depending on the facts of your current situation, God just might still be waiting on YOU.  So, the least you can do is WAIT ad BE PATIENT with the God of all creation to transform your tribulation.  WAIT on God.  God has NOT forgotten about YOU!

BlogFam, Rejoice in HOPE, Be PATIENT in Tribulation, and...

BE CONSTANT IN PRAYER
Stay connected to God!!!  God is the source of all things good and an ever present help in any time of trouble!  So, God will help you to rejoice and to remain hopeful and to be patient as you seek to maintain your connection with God.  BE CONSTANT IN PRAYER!  Pray everyday and all the time.  There is not ONE thing in your life that does not need to be included in your prayers.  And when you are going through whatever you are going through, PRAYER will help you to be constant in everything that you might want to give up on!  But do NOT give up!  Just keep those prayers going UP and eventually God will lift you UP!  BE CONSTANT IN PRAYER!

BlogFam, this is a formula for facing whatever YOU are going through in life:

Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.
Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.
Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.



TO GOD BE THE GLORY!
GOD LOVES YOU and I DO TOO!
Blessings, Glory, and Sunshine!
Delesslyn
