Hello and praise the Lord my brothers and sisters in Christ. Welcome once again to the Memory verse of the week. I know it has been a while since I have posted this lesson, but I pray that that does not happen again.

Father God, I thank You that I am able once again to give this lesson by Your Grace. Guide my words and my thoughts so that I am speaking through You Lord and may all that read this lesson be blessed as You have blessed me to give it
In Jesus Name I pray
Amen

This weeks verse comes from Habakkuk 3:17-18
17 Although the fig tree shall not blossom, neither shall fruit be in the vines; the labour of the olive shall fail, and the fields shall yield no meat; the flock shall be cut off from the fold, and there shall be no herd in the stalls: 18 Yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will joy in the God of my salvation.

This is a powerful word of faith from this man of God and it is a shining example of how we as believers should live. Especially in this time of uncertainty with the economy and folks losing their livelihood everyday. I know from experience that when times look hard and you don't know where that next bill is coming from, it can become easy to start to worry and wonder if God has forgotten you. Then when you are just about to lose hope, God shows His great love and wisdom! He knows how much we can bear and he doesn't let us have more than we can bear. His Word tells us in 1Co 10:13 "There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it." No matter what we go through and how bad it may seem to us, God gives us a way out of the hardship. And you know what way He gives us? He gives us the way of faith! Without faith we can not please God. Without faith, we are calling God a liar! Faith is us saying, God we trust in You even we we can't see the forest for the trees. We trust You no matter how much pain we are in. We trust You to make a way were we can not see a way! Faith is saying and believing that God is who He says He is!

And over the past couple of weeks, God has shown this to me through His Word and through His children, my friends here at SP! No matter what I may be going through, I have to trust God and continue to do what He has called me to do. And that goes for all of us! God Gives us gifts to do His will and the most important gift is faith, because without faith, none of the other gifts will work!

So my friends, whatever you are going through, remember God is bigger than all of our problems! And he is the joy of our salvation!
Thank you and God Bless you

Romans 8:1
There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.

May God richly bless you!

In Jesus Name
Amen
