Problems come to the righteous and to the unrighteous on this earth but the righteous build on a good foundation allowing them to withstand

Joan Boney ... apostle/prophet

In the following words of Jesus we see that problems come on both the righteous and the unrighteous but there is a very big difference between the two.

Mt. 6:24-27    Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of MINE, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:

And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.

And every one that heareth these sayings of MINE, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand:

And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.


Notice that the rain, the floods, and the winds beat on both houses ... one house stood in the storms of life while the other house fell.

Building your house on the Word of God is the only thing that will stand the problems of this present life.

If you allow yourself to be negative and complain thinking "Why me?", you are going to fall, for the problems give us an opportunity to turn to God and allow HIM to show HIMSELF on our behalf.

We are victorious through HIM, by trusting in HIM in the midst of the trouble, by hearing from God by HIS Spirit, and by following what we believe God shows us to do.


Psalm 34:19    Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth him out of them all.


Romans 12:1-2    I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.

And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

Transformed:   completely changed

As we read Bible and do what we see in the Bible, we make a very strong change from that which we see the world do or from that which human nature does.

When we are harmed, we do not try to get even.  We do not fight to get what we think we deserve from the wrong done.

Instead we turn to God, committing the entire matter to God.  We wait on God.  We even suffer ourselves to be defrauded.  I Corinthians 6

Because of the Word of God we know God will repay us if we do things HIS way.

We also see this world as very temporary.  This world and the things of this world are not our life.

We know inwardly that God will take care of us as long as HE chooses to leave us on this present earth.

We know the many promises of God given to us in the Bible and we know God will do what HE promises.  We choose to focus on the word of God instead of on the wisdom of man.

By focusing on the Word of God and choosing to live by that Word, we are changed from the direction of this world and from the way we once would have gone.

So in the problems which come in this life, we turn to God in prayer, pouring out our heart to God and we read the Bible, allowing God's word to transform us from the wisdom of men and the way of this world by doing that which we see in the Bible.
