Thankfully "Tribulation Begets Patience"! (Romans 5:3)

Life seems so easy when you're up on the mountain,
And you have peace of mind like you've never known.

But then things change, and your down in the valley,
Just keep The Faith for you're never alone!

For The GOD of the mountain, is still GOD in the valley,
The GOD of the day, is still GOD in the night!

The GOD of the good times, is still GOD in the bad times,
When things (seem to) go wrong, HE can make them right!
And Thankfully, "Tribulation begets Patience, and Patience begets Experience, and Experience begets Hope"! (Romans 5:3b-4)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2010/10/hope-of-heaven-for-hope-which-is-laid.html

"And Hope does not make a soul ashamed, because The Love of Our FATHER and GOD is shed abroad in our hearts by HIS Holy, Set Apart, SPIRIT which is given unto those brethren of The Messiah", who have "received a love of The TRUTH so that they might be saved" from their own self ("I", ego, id, pride) life! And then were "Born Again" of The Holy, Set Apart SPIRIT that IS Our FATHER and GOD!(Romans 5:5, II Thessalonians 2:10-13, John 3:3,7, I Peter 1:23)

And the brethren of The Messiah are exhorted to "continue in The Faith, for through much tribulation will we enter into the Kingdom of Our FATHER and GOD"! (Acts 14:22)

"Much Tribulation indeed"! For "the WHOLE world (not just a portion) IS under the control of the evil one", and so it is that "whoever would be a friend of this world is the enemy of Our FATHER and GOD"....... (I John 5:19; 2:15-17, James 4:4, John 7:7)

And The Messiah testified, "These things I have spoken unto you, that in Me you might have Peace. In the world you will have tribulation, but be of good cheer. For I have overcome the world"! (John 16:33)

Yet religion's way(except it be The Active Faith as revealed in James 1:27) in this day and age has so perverted "The Word of TRUTH", "The Way of TRUTH is evil spoken of"! (James 1:18, II Peter 2:2) 

However, religion was and is yet needful for those "disobedient and gainsaying (contradicting and opposing Our FATHER and GOD) people who are "stiff-necked and uncircumcised of heart and ears"! (Romans 10:21, Acts 7:51)

Needful for those worldly and/or religious souls who would rather have a man (Moses, Samuel, etc.) than Our FATHER and GOD speak to them, and who would rather have a man (Saul, David, etc.) than Our
FATHER and GOD rule over them! (Exodus 20:19, l Samuel 8:4-21, John 20:17; 14:28)

Yet in spite of that which is of this evil world and/or religion's way! Thankfully IT IS as The Messiah testified, "Peace I leave with you, My peace I give unto you.. Not as the world gives, do I give unto you....... Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid! (John 7:7, James 1:27, John 14:27, Philippians 4:7)

“Let patience have her perfect work, that you may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing”! (James 1:4)

And "Trust in Our FATHER and GOD with all your heart, leaning not unto you own understanding! In ALL your ways acknowledge HIM and HE WILL direct your path"....... (Proverbs 3:5-6)

As you evermore REALize, that liken unto The Messiah, so also "i can do nothing of my own self"! 
(John 5:19,30; 8:28-29; 7:16; 9:4; 12:49-50; 14:10,23-24; 17:8,14)

So it is the brethren of The Messiah cry unto Our FATHER and GOD day and night"....... (Luke 18:7, John 20:17)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/09/our-father-and-god-john-2017.html

Sounding and resounding a Declaration of Dependence:

HE DID!       and HE does.......

So Thankfully, "The Peace that surpasses ALL understanding" IS! in spite of the dis-ease (no-peace) that is of this evil world and/or religion's way(except it be The Active Faith as revealed in James 1:27)....... (Philippians 4:7, John 14:27; 7:7, I John 5:19; 2:15-17, James 1:27; 4:4) 

ALL Thanks and Praise Be Unto Our FATHER(TRUTH, SPIRIT, CREATOR, GOD, LORD, MASTER, LIGHT, LOVE, LIFE,,,,,,, ALL IN ALL that which IS Truly GOOD)! (John 20:17; 14:28, Mark 10:18)
