The last part of your question is where I want to begin from: Please advise me: what is God’s purpose for me and why have I had difficulties in life? There are many people who have a chain of difficulties in life continually having life hard, why should they have a hard life? Let me read something to you from Proverbs 13:, there are two reasons why people have difficulties like in life even if they are Christians and I will read the first one to you. From Proverbs 13: 15 “Good understanding giveth favour: but the way ofressors is hard”. Good understanding you know the bible says get wisdom, get understanding (Proverbs 4:5) with all thy getting get understanding. (Proverbs 4:7) Understanding God’s word, you know in Jesus parable of the sower, he said the first set of seeds fell by the way side, he said the birds came and pick them up, when he explained that he said those who received seed by the way side, are those who hear the word of God and don’t understand it and so Satan comes immediately and steals the word of God that was sown in their hearts. They couldn’t understand the word, so he says to understand it. Now, he says Proverbs 13:15 “Good understanding gives favour ” because if you have understanding you will function according to your understanding, you are living according to your understanding and that’s a big problem because it means you lack the true adequate spiritual understanding of God’s word and how the kingdom functions. The next part of it is very very insightful he says here Proverbs 13:15 “…but the way of transgressors is hard”. Now, the bible describe sin has the transgression of the law. To transgress the law means that you violate the law, now this definition is giving to us over in the New Testament rather than in the old it’s the same. In the Old Testament transgressing the law will mean transgressing the commandment giving by Moses. In the New Testament, there was only one law that Jesus gave which was the law of love, Now after you are bornagain and the Holy spirit has come to live within you, you will discover is really no longer a law, yet it’s a law. It’s a law in the mind but in the spirit it has become a reality because the bible says the love of God is shared abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost (Romans 5:5). Now that law actually is the law of love which means that God has called us to work and function in love. Now if you don’t function in love you are a transgressor which means you are transgressing the law of the New Testament which is love, Jesus said a new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, (John 13:34) This is a new commandment and he gave them this commandment before they were bornagain because while he was giving them that commandment he hadn’t gone to the cross, it wasn’t possible for anyone to be bornagain until Jesus was bornagain, raised from the dead that is. Now after Jesus came out of the grave it became possible when the Holy Spirit came to make anyone to receive that salvation and be bornagain and with that when the Holy Spirit comes into your life the love of God is shared abroad in your heart and you can function in it. It becomes your natural way of life but you got to do it, you’ve got to act it. Now if you don’t live in love, if you don’t walk in love, you are a transgressor, that is the New Testament transgressor and the bible says the way of transgressors is hard. So, you going to have to look at your life, turn the search light on your life and see are you walking in love towards those around you, are you walking in love towards fellow believers, are you walking in love, what’s your language like when you talk to others or do you vent your anger or frustration continually on others, that might be the reason things have continually been hard for you because he says the way of transgressors is hard. The second reason is ignorance Hosea 4:6 “My people are destroyed for the lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children”. Now, that’s very powerful there is so much for me to say to you there but I just want to pick out the first part of it, Hosea 4:6 which says “ My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge:”. They are destroyed, they are defected, they are crushed for lack of knowledge what knowledge is he dealing with, he is not talking here of ordinary human knowledge he’s talking about the knowledge of spiritual things, the knowledge of God, the bible says (2 Peter 3:18) …grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ”. To grow in grace, if you are growing in grace it means you’re growing in favour but remember what we read Proverbs 13:15 “Good understanding gives favour:” That means good understanding would bring you more grace, that’s the bible says more grace, so he says to grow in grace, if you are going to grow in grace that means you have to have more understanding of God’s word and that is very very important today. Hosea 4:6 “My people are destroyed for the lack of knowledge, now what are you going to do. Start learning God’s word, get the tapes, get the books, study the books listening to the message, hear God’s word put it to work, act on it, live by it. Be sure to increase in spiritual knowledge, see remember that the spirit world controls the physical world and you can control the physical things in your life from the realm of the spirit but that will remain a cliché to you without ever coming into your Spirit until you actually have the understanding of God’s word. You know there is something else I will like to read to you and it’s in the book of Joshua, chapter one, the young man Joshua had just began the ministry and the Lord showed him how to be a success, in verse 8 chapter one. Joshua 1:8 “This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt mediate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then that shalt have good success”. Notice what he said to him he says This book of the law, now in our day this book of the law would be the word of God, all of God’s word because at that time all they had was the law but now we have all of God’s word, the whole revelation has been given to and Particularly the instructions that we have, the revelations that we have over in the new testament in the epistle Particularly. You can learn from all the others but particularly you have great revelation in the Epistles where he says this book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth;” you going to have to learn to talk God’s word but you can’t talk God’s word until it is resident in your heart for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh. So, he says Joshua 1:8 “This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt mediate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then that shalt have good success” he tells you the result if you do this, if you meditate continually in God’s word says Joshua 1:8 … that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then that shalt have good success” can you see that is your responsibility, if you do this you will make your way prosperous your life will no longer be hard. This is your responsibility you can make your life prosperous Joshua 1:8 … that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then that shalt have good success” So, is not about God wanting you to succeed or not wanting you to succeed you are a child of God and he wants you to be a success and he will show you how.
