MORNINGTIME 2533
                  
Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations: THAT THE TRIAL OF YOUR FAITH, BEING MUCH MORE PRECIOUS THAN OF GOLD that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, MIGHT BE FOUND unto praise and honour and glory AT THE APPEARING OF JESUS CHRIST: Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory: Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls. 1 Peter 1:6-9. So, do you play the lottery, or are you looking for that amazing e-mail that finally, someone recognizes your worth and they want to send you a million dollars as soon as you click on their website? Are you waiting for your ship to come in so you can enjoy a life of ease while someone keeps sending you money? Well, keep waiting, it may be a while, IF EVER. Or, if you REALLY want to make it Big and actually have some tangible proof of doing so, try this sure fire method of getting REAL results THAT WILL LAST THROUGHOUT ALL OF ETERNITY. Ask the Holy Spirit to take every single "life experience" and make it into a time of Growing in Christ and into CHRIST LIKENESS. For example, yesterday, when you got angry at "that thing", that was the Lord showing you, you have an anger issue He wants you to give to Him so He can make you more Patient. There are a hundred of these Growing Opportunities every day that the Lord wants to use to Grow you in Christ.  Sure they hurt, they bite, and they will even try to distract you from Christ, BECAUSE YOUR FLESHLY OLD MAN NATURE IS BEING KILLED, and your flesh won't give up easily. Only Christ can change you and tear out your old nature to replace it with His Nature. This is growing from worldliness, to CHRISTLIKENESS. NO ITS NOT EASY, if it were, everyone would do it. But it will get you those most Precious Words, "Well done Good and Faithful Servant, enter into the Joy of thy Lord", to forever, Be Blessed.
