A message from Mt. Siani…

Evidence of my Growth
2 Corinthians 8:1-5
“Now, friends, I want to report on the surprising and generous ways in which God is working in the churches in Macedonia province. Fierce troubles came down on the people of those churches, pushing them to the very limit. The trial exposed their true colors: They were incredibly happy, though desperately poor. The pressure triggered something totally unexpected: an outpouring of pure and generous gifts. I was there and saw it for myself. They gave offerings of whatever they could—far more than they could afford!—pleading for the privilege of helping out in the relief of poor Christians.”
The message today, was about appreciating the everlasting Grace of God, and maintaining your joy, even in times of despair, in order to grow in the word, and share the abundance of life with others.

1.Trusting through trials
-Be anxious (worry) about nothing, have ye no faith in the father above to take care of all your needs? If you hold on to faith, I promise you are prepared
-Problems and circumstances are temporary, pain is apart of life, and suffering is optional.
-As soon as you claim to be living Holy, people will try and bring up you past and the enemy will see if your REALLY about that life!

2.Sew seeds of good grace and God will give back in abundance
-Something about finances, causes Christians to hoard and claim malicious or manipulative intent, only 3% of Christians tithe properly
-God does not need a tip, he is no waitress! He is the chef, the manager, and the CEO it’s not about the money, it’s about the giving.
-If your heart if filled with twisted intent and goals of money and power please believe God can see all of that.

3. Grace will prepare you for life, everyday it is renewed.
 - Grace is the elegance of life, it is the light that shines through you. 
 - No one controls the amount of joy you receive, don’t let anyone turn off your happiness, God said it is overflowing.
-Receive Gods abundance by acknowledging his works and letting him guide your path lead not on your own understanding.


Nothing is more dangerous than trying to control your own life an expecting it to work. God has set up a plan for us, and with every sin and angry or malicious thought we delay our divine destiny. Believing in God gives power that you are looking for in abundance, but that abundance is to be shared with others. God offers us comfort and strength in our weakness moments so the least we can do is trust him. God Bless You! Happy Sunday :)
