Recieve God's comfort...2 Corinthians 1:3-43Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, 4who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God.
1. Remain faithful to God in heart, mind and soul
2.In relation to eternity... what is happening now is so tiny and miniscule to what His plans are for me. God holds my past, present and future.
3.Be faithful to the work at hand.
4.Dont take it personally, God is the one allowing it to happen
5.Deal with personal issues of rejection and dissapointments and surrender it to God.
6.It is the work of the Holy Spirit to change hearts and minds of people and it is God who vindicates.. so in short turn the other cheek. Do not hold on to anger, let go and forgive.
7. Believe in God and not on ourselves or on anyone else..
"He did not do many mighty works there because of their unbelief"
2 Corinthians 1:8-118We do not want you to be uninformed, brothers, about the hardships we suffered in the province of Asia. We were under great pressure, far beyond our ability to endure, so that we despaired even of life. 9Indeed, in our hearts we felt the sentence of death. But this happened that we might not rely on ourselves but on God, who raises the dead. 10He has delivered us from such a deadly peril, and he will deliver us. On him we have set our hope that he will continue to deliver us, 11as you help us by your prayers. Then many will give thanks on our behalf for the gracious favor granted us in answer to the prayers of many.
