Bible Study-This Too Shall Pass ~ The Victory Belongs To Me

THIS TOO SHALL PASS~THE VICTORY BELONGS TO ME

 

2 Timothy 1:5 (Amplified Bible)

5  I am calling up memories of your sincere and unqualified faith (the leaning of your entire personality on God in Christ in absolute trust and confidence in His power, wisdom, and goodness), [a faith] that first lived permanently in [the heart of] your grandmother Lois and your mother Eunice and now, I am [fully] persuaded, [dwells] in you also.

 

It appears that Timothy was getting fearful, weariful, and unsure of his call. His spirit was sinking, so Paul came in with a strong word to revive him. In 2 Timothy 1:5, Paul reminded him of his faith and how it came to him. He told him in essence, "I remember your grandmother's faith. I remember your mother's faith. I remember when I laid my hands on you and we prayed for you to receive the gifts that are in you." Then he said, "Now stir up the gift within you."

 

2 Timothy 1:6

6 That is why I would remind you to stir up (rekindle the embers of, fan the flame of, and keep burning) the [gracious] gift of God, [the inner fire] that is in you by means of the laying on of my hands [with those of the elders at your ordination].

 

Nobody can stir up your gift, that fire within you, the way you can. Other people can stir you up, but as soon as you are alone, you can grow cold again. That is when you have to stir up yourself. Pray, worship, and praise God. Remember what HE has spoken to you. Preach to yourself if you have to. Just do whatever it takes for you to stay stirred up in God!  When you are alone and by yourself, you are the one who has to be able to do that! Take faith, you can!

 

When I face difficult times, I tell myself, "This can't last forever. This too, shall pass."

You can probably look back at your life and see many difficult times you have endured, even though at the time you thought , I cannot take another minute of this. I can't take this another day. The devil probably tempted you every five minutes to believe that the trial was going to last forever, that there was no end in sight and that nothing was ever going to change or get better.

 

I know that for myself, the best way to get through some times is to look back at the times before, when you felt just like that, yet it was God who brought you through to the side of Victory. I call them my altars or memorials that I have placed in my heart to remind me of what the Lord has done in my life and the many times HE has defeated the enemy for me. The battle is not mine. The battle belongs to the Lord.

 

2 Timothy 1:5 (Amplified Bible)

 

5 I am calling up memories of your sincere and unqualified faith (the leaning of your entire personality on God in Christ in absolute trust and confidence in His power, wisdom, and goodness), [a faith] that first lived permanently in [the heart of] your grandmother Lois and your mother Eunice and now, I am [fully] persuaded, [dwells] in you also.

 

Consider how many times you have already made it through to the other side of pain, you can be confident you will make it again through Christ Who strengthens you (Phil. 4:13- I have strength for all things in Christ Who empowers me [I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him Who infuses inner strength into me; I am self-sufficient in Christ's sufficiency].)

 

And on the other side of trials, you will see how God turned those experiences into good for your life (Romans 8:28-We are assured and know that [God being a partner in their labor] all things work together and are [fitting into a plan] for good to and for those who love God and are called according to [His] design and purpose.).

 

If you have had a problem for more than six months, you probably feel as though your problem has lasted for an eternity. But our years on earth are only a little drop of nothing compared to forever.

 

Paul said in 2 Corinthians 4:17-18 that the seasons of trials pass: (For our light, momentary affliction (this slight distress of the passing hour) is ever more and more abundantly preparing and producing and achieving for us an everlasting weight of glory [beyond all measure, excessively surpassing all comparisons and all calculations, a vast and transcendent glory and blessedness never to cease!], Since we consider and look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen; for the things that are visible are temporal (brief and fleeting), but the things that are invisible are deathless and everlasting.).

 

It is tough when we are going through trials, but Paul learned to keep his eyes on the prize of heaven and trusted God to prepare him so that God's Glory was revealed in his life.

 

When you are tempted to become discontented, remember, "This too, shall pass". Your afflictions are "light and momentary" from the perspective of eterntiy. No matter how bad your current situation may look, God loves you. Never let go of the truth that God loves you, no matter what happens in your life. You can trust that everything will work out because of His great Love for you.

 

I pray that this message has blessed you today and has encouraged you that not only are you not alone in your trials, but God will make a Way for you to come through to the side of Victory. We are more than a conqueror through Christ. For every trial you face, remind yourself "this too shall pass" and then remind the enemy that the victory already belongs to you because it was secured on the Cross.

 

Please know that you are loved, valued, and appreciated, by God and by me.

With love and hugs,

Naomi
