Proverbs 21:31, TLB “Go ahead and prepare for the conflict but victory comes from God.”
Hosea 4:6, KJV “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.”
Galatians 6:5, KJV “For every man shall bear his own burden.”
Philippians 2:13, NLT2 “For God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases Him.”
God is more concerned with your character than your comfort.
Pain is part of the process to promotion. Disappointment is part of the process to developing. Total devastation should lead to total dependence on God. Total dependence on God leads to the right process in developing us to be used by God.
Heart attitude for God’s Victory:
Prepared heart – arrange your life for the process it takes to get prepared and ready.
Praying heart – our heart lined up with God’s will.
Persistent heart – helps us find our purpose.
Processing heart – a heart that understands the process, not necessarily enjoys the process.
