Can You Pass The DELAY TEST?

Do You Trust God? Do You Need Patience?

During the times we are delayed through trials and tribulations, our own disobedience, or a trap from Satan, we should humble ourselves. According to 1 Peter 5:6-7, we are to humble ourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt us in due time. Casting all our cares upon him; for he careth for us. Whatever the purpose God has for the trial, we should ask Him to help and instruct us through it. We should also seek an understanding from God for the trial according to Proverbs 3:5-6. We must trust in the Lord with all our heart and lean not unto our own understanding. In all our ways we should acknowledge Him and He shall direct our paths. When we seek God’s understanding for the trial we will learn the lesson in it.

     Many times people become frustrated when they are delayed. They get angry when they can’t make progress in their lives. They feel God’s principles are too hard so they create their own method to achieve their goals. Many create their own way even if it is wrong, illegal, and ungodly. They also create methods without boundaries and constraints. Anything goes when the absolute standard has been forsaken. Instead of seeking God for help to obey His principles they become upset and frustrated with God. God’s principles require discipline and obedience. Many times people are unwilling to give what it takes to be disciplined or obedient. The more we become disciplined in a specific area of our lives the easier it will become to be obedient in that same area.

How To Hold On To Your Faith When All HELL Breaks LOOSE!

It is no secret that today we are living during a time of unrest, racial injustice, war, viruses, police brutality, social and economic inequalities, a rise in the suicide rate and the list goes on and on. We are challenged daily to pray, believe that things will get better and hold on to our faith. Many rely on God to make sense of the chaos while others are on the verge of giving up hope. Life is a journey with ups and downs, hills and valleys, success and disappointments.

     On February 13, 2016 ASWIFTT RADIO host Brenda Diann Johnson talked with Pastor Adrian Simmons about how to hold on to your faith when all hell breaks loose. The discussion encouraged and offered practical suggestions while coming from scripture. There will be times when life gets hard and our circumstances are magnified. The enemy has a way of making things seem more drastic than they really are. The famous acronym FEAR means False Evidence Appearing REAL is the best example that demonstrates how Satan attempts to disturb and frustrate us. The enemy wants us to believe temporary circumstances are permanent. He ultimately wants us to suffer despair and lose all hope.

     Pastor Simmons is an ASWIFTT RADIO contributor. His weekly program “Bible Teachings by Pastor Adrian Simmons” airs on ASWIFTT RADIO on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 1 pm CST and 11 am PST. He is the pastor of Way of Grace Bible Church in Rancho Cordova, CA. He has been a bible teacher for over 11 years. In the past he taught Theology at the Rio Cosumnes Correctional Center, SAC County Jail Ministry, California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation. Simmons currently preaches at Folsom Prison which is a men’s facility and New Folsom Prison Women’s facility.

How To Hold On To Your Faith When All HELL Breaks LOOSE! Part II

On February 23, 2016 at 2 pm CST ASWIFTT RADIO host Brenda Diann Johnson talked with Pastor Rufus Fields about how to hold on to your faith when all hell breaks loose. This part II discussion encouraged and offered practical suggestions while coming from scripture. There will be times when life gets hard and our circumstances are magnified. The enemy has a way of making things seem more drastic than they really are. The famous acronym FEAR means False Evidence Appearing REAL is the best example that demonstrates how Satan attempts to disturb and frustrate us. The enemy wants us to believe temporary circumstances are permanent. He ultimately wants us to suffer despair and lose all hope.

     1 Peter 5:8 tells us to Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour. John 10:10 reveals the enemy’s purpose and why Jesus came. “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” The daily life we live is not always easy. We will face trials and tribulations. Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth him out of them all. (Psalm 34:19)

     Pastor Fields is an ASWIFTT RADIO contributor. His weekly program “Sermons by Pastor Rufus Fields” airs on ASWIFTT RADIO on Fridays at 2 pm CST. He is the pastor of Global Harvest Kingdom Church in Desoto, Texas and co-founder of God’s Anointed Ministries along with his wife Glenda Fields. He is a father of two sons. He is also a psalmist, preacher, author, teacher, motivational speaker, and visionary.
