Be with God and be blessed
Joel 2:26 - And ye shall eat in plenty, and be satisfied, and praise the name of the LORD your God, that hath dealt wondrously with you: and my people shall never be ashamed.
Last Saturday I was taking a session and in that I learnt about the two types of persecution (troubles) one that comes from Satan and his team and one that come from God and His Angels.
I had given a few examples of different characters from the Bible and we saw that when they were persecuted by Satan, they had problems for some time but these very problems helped them grow and the result was a great blessing. But when the same characters went through problems because they angered God the result was a great loss and a testimony.
When God's people stick with the Lord and do not forsake Him, they will never be disappointed in life. Whatever Satan does through man or any other means will land up blessing God's people more, for our God is God and Satan is nothing before Him.
But people, do not think that problems we go through because of our misdeeds is going to turn into a blessed, they will only turn into a testimony. Fear not Satan but the Lord.
So the end statement is 'Be with God and be blessed'.

Lord God, You alone are God and Almighty. All things are made by You and nothing is mightier than You. Whatever Satan tries will turn around and be a blessing because we have the promise You gave to our father Abraham. Help all those who are confused and deceived in this understand to come to light and see the truth...
We make this prayer in Jesus' Name, Amen.

2 And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing:
3 And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.
