PANACEA TO ALL CHALLENGES | Rejoicing in hope, steadfast and patient in distress, devoted to prayer [continually seeking strength]. – Romans 12:12.

Beloved, glory to the God of heaven for bringing us into the seventh month. The month of fullness, completeness, perfection and totality. You shall experience speedy answers to all your petitions this month in Jesus name. The peace of God shall be your portion in every facets of your life in Jesus name.
Every previous experience of storms shall be stilled forever. It shall be well with you in Jesus name.
Beloved, don’t be surprised if you find yourself confronted with inexplainable challenges. The good Lord had decreed that on this side of heaven, everyone of us shall have different seasons.

Genesis 8:22. While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.

Ecclesiastes 3:1. To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:

Ecclesiastes 3:4. A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;

In fact going by the unfailing word of the living God, we are all born into trouble.

Job 5:6-7. Although affliction cometh not forth of the dust, neither doth trouble spring out of the ground; Yet man is born unto trouble, as the sparks fly upward.

But then when you are confronted with challenges, you need not faint. You need not turn back from following after your loving Father. You need not seek help from satan.

Proverbs 24:10. If thou faint in the day of adversity, thy strength is small.

Realize there is a way out and God had provided unfailing solution or panacea. See it.

Romans 12:12. Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer;

There are three things you need to do to surmount the challenges. See them.
The first  thing to do whenever you are confronted with challenges. Rejoicing and be hopeful:

Psalms 16:9-11  Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: my flesh also shall rest in hope.  For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption. Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.

Proverbs 10:28: The hope of the righteous shall begladness: but the expectation of the wicked shall perish.

Proverbs 14:32: The wicked is driven away in his wickedness: but the righteous hath hope in his death.

Lamentations 3:24-26. The LORD is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him. The LORD is good unto them that wait for him, to the soul that seeketh him. It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the LORD.

Habakkuk 3:17 -18. ¶Although the fig tree shall not blossom, neither shall fruit be in the vines; the labour of the olive shall fail, and the fields shall yield no meat; the flock shall be cut off from the fold, and there shall be no herd in the stalls: Yet I will rejoice in the LORD, I will joy in the God of my salvation.

The  second  thing to do whenever you are confronted with challenges. Be patient with God and yourself. Don’t haste to make wrong decisions that could plunge you into more troubles.

Psalms 37:7: Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass

Psalms 40:1-3. I waited patiently for the Lord;and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry. He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings. And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the Lord.

James 5:10-11  Take, my brethren, the prophets, who have spoken in the name of the Lord, for an example of suffering affliction, and of patience. Behold, we count them happy which endure. Ye have heard of the patience of Job, and have seen the end of the Lord; that the Lord is very pitiful, and of tender mercy.

The third thing to do whenever you are confronted with challenges. Pray to God fervently until you receive answers. See His promises as you pray believing.

Psalms 50:15. And call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me.

Isaiah 65:24. And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear.

Jeremiah 33:3. Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.

 Beloved, He has good thoughts towards you, which are realised on the altar of prayers.

Jeremiah 29:11-13. For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you. And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.

See brethren of like passion who prayed and triumphed. You also shall triumph in Jesus name.
1. Jacob:

Genesis 32:24-28. And Jacob was left alone; and there wrestled a man with him until the breaking of the day. And when he saw that he prevailed not against him, he touched the hollow of his thigh; and the hollow of Jacob’s thigh was out of joint, as he wrestled with him. And he said, Let me go, for the day breaketh. And he said, I will not let thee go, except thou bless me. And he said unto him, What is thy name? And he said, Jacob. And he said, Thy name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel: for as a prince hast thou power with God and with men, and hast prevailed.

2. David:

Psalms 55:16 -57. As for me, I will call upon God; and the LORD shall save me. Evening, and morning, and at noon, will I pray, and cry aloud: and he shall hear my voice.

Psalms 62:8: Trust in him at all times; ye people, pour out your heart before him: God is a refuge for us. Selah.

Psalms 91:14-16. Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name. He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him. With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.

3. Daniel :

Daniel 9:16-19. O Lord, according to all thy righteousness, I beseech thee, let thine anger and thy fury be turned away from thy city Jerusalem, thy holy mountain: because for our sins, and for the iniquities of our fathers, Jerusalem and thy people are become a reproach to all that are about us. Now therefore, O our God, hear the prayer of thy servant, and his supplications, and cause thy face to shine upon thy sanctuary that is desolate, for the Lord’s sake. O my God, incline thine ear, and hear; open thine eyes, and behold our desolations, and the city which is called by thy name: for we do not present our supplications before thee for our righteousnesses, but for thy great mercies. O Lord, hear; O Lord, forgive; O Lord, hearken and do; defer not, for thine own sake, O my God: for thy city and thy people are called by thy name.

4. Yourself ‘ this present challenges shall turn into testimonies in Jesus name.

Luke 21:13. And it shall turn to you for a testimony.

Dearly beloved,  Jesus our Lord  was  not a false or deceptive teacher and master. Today we have ministers that failed to tell their congregations the truth. Our Lord taught us that, following Him faithfully and wholeheartedly by anyone and everyone will expose us to unavoidable challenges.

John 16:33. These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

John 17:14-16. I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil. They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.

He Himself was exposed to unavoidable challenges for propagating the truth.

John 15:18-19. If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.

1 John 3:13. Marvel not, my brethren, if the world hate you.

But then our Lord triumphed. You also shall triumph. He triumphed by doing three things and taught believers of all ages and you in particular to do sane to triumph.  See the three things.

Romans 12:12. Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer;

1. Rejoicing in hope.
2. Patient in tribulations or troubles.
3. Continue to pray till answers come from God the Father. 
See His personal lifestyle on these three things and also His teachings.
His personal rejoicing  lifestyle :
Rejoicing 

Luke 10:21-22. In that hour Jesus rejoiced in spirit, and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes: even so, Father; for so it seemed good in thy sight. All things are delivered to me of my Father: and no man knoweth who the Son is, but the Father; and who the Father is, but the Son, and he to whom the Son will reveal him.

Teachings on rejoicing:

Matthew 5:12: Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.

Luke 10:20: Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.

His personal patient lifestyle : patient in troubles.

1 Peter 2:21-23. For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps: Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth: Who, when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered, he threatened not; but committed himself to him that judgeth righteously:

Teachings on patience:

Luke 8:15: But that on the good ground are they, which in an honest and good heart, having heard the word, keep it, and bring forth fruit with patience.

Luke 21:19: In your patience possess ye your souls.

His personal prayer lifestyle 

Mark 1:35. And in the morning, rising up a great while before day, he went out, and departed into a solitary place, and there prayed.

Matthew 14:23. And when he had sent the multitudes away, he went up into a mountain apart to pray: and when the evening was come, he was there alone.

Luke 6:12. And it came to pass in those days, that he went out into a mountain to pray, and continued all night in prayer to God.

Hebrews 5:7-8. Who in the days of his flesh, when he had offered up prayers and supplications with strong crying and tears unto him that was able to save him from death, and was heard in that he feared; Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered;

Teachings on prayer;

Luke 11:5-13. And he said unto them, Which of you shall have a friend, and shall go unto him at midnight, and say unto him, Friend, lend me three loaves; For a friend of mine in his journey is come to me, and I have nothing to set before him? And he from within shall answer and say, Trouble me not: the door is now shut, and my children are with me in bed; I cannot rise and give thee. I say unto you, Though he will not rise and give him, because he is his friend, yet because of his importunity he will rise and give him as many as he needeth. And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you. For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. If a son shall ask bread of any of you that is a father, will he give him a stone? or if he ask a fish, will he for a fish give him a serpent? Or if he shall ask an egg, will he offer him a scorpion? If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?

Luke 18:1-8. And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint; Saying, There was in a city a judge, which feared not God, neither regarded man: And there was a widow in that city; and she came unto him, saying, Avenge me of mine adversary. And he would not for a while: but afterward he said within himself, Though I fear not God, nor regard man; Yet because this widow troubleth me, I will avenge her, lest by her continual coming she weary me. And the Lord said, Hear what the unjust judge saith. And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them? I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?

John 16:23-24. And in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you. Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full.

Dearly beloved, Bible days believers followed this same pattern and triumphed. This was because, there shall be tribulations or troubles following our Master Jesus Christ faithfully.
So you too, commit yourself into doing them and testimonies shall abound in your life in Jesus name

Romans 12:12. Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer;

Acts 14:22. Confirming the souls of the disciples, and exhorting them to continue in the faith, and that we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God.

See what they did and follow the same pattern.
The first  panacea is rejoicing and be hopeful

Romans  5:2-4  By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; And patience, experience; and experience, hope:

Romans 8:25: But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it.

Romans 15:13: Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.

The second  panacea is to be patient, until the victory comes from the Lord.

Colossians 1:11: Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness;

2 Thessalonians 1:4: So that we ourselves glory in you in the churches of God for your patience and faith in all your persecutions and tribulations that ye endure:

Hebrews 6:12: That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises.

Hebrews 6:15: And so, after he had patiently endured, he obtained the promise.

Hebrews 10:36: For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise.

James 1:3-4. Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience.But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.

The third panacea is : Prayer till you receive answers.

Acts 1:14: These all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication, with the women, and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brethren.

Acts 2:42: And they continued stedfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers.

Acts 6:4: But we will give ourselves continually to prayer, and to the ministry of the word.

Acts 12:5: Peter therefore was kept in prison: but prayer was made without ceasing of the church unto God for him.

Ephesians 6:18: Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;

Philippians 4:6 -7 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

Colossians 4:2: Continue in prayer, and watch in the same with thanksgiving;

1 Thessalonians 5:17: Pray without ceasing.

James 5:15 -16. And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him. Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.

1 John 5:14-15.  And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us: And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.

Your triumph is certain as you trustfully followed the Lord. It shall be so for you in Jesus name.
HEAVENLY PANACEA FOR EVERY CHALLENGES  CONFRONTING BELIEVERS OF ALL AGES, ESPECIALLY  YOU, ACCORDING TO ROMANS CHAPTER TWELVE VERSE TWELVE.
Friend,  since you are persuaded that, the end time is here and the rapture is dawning. This same panacea  is what shall help you realise your earnest expectations to be ready. You shall not miss it in Jesus name.
Remember satan will trouble you severely to hinder you. But as you faithfully persevere to the end. He and his cohorts shall fail abysmally in Jesus name.

Romans 12:12. Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer;

Revelation 2:10. Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.

So see the three things to be done. Go ahead and do them and we shall meet in the sky at the feet of Jesus in Jesus name.
 1. Rejoicing and Hoping for His unfailing enablement to get you ready.

Psalms 73:24: Thou shalt guide me with thy counsel, and afterward receive me to glory

Philippians 3:1: Finally, my brethren, rejoice in the Lord. To write the same things to you, to me indeed is not grievous, but for you it is safe.

Philippians 4:4: Rejoice in the Lord alway: andagain I say, Rejoice.

Colossians 1:27: To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:

1 Thessalonians 5:8: But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation.

1 Thessalonians 5:16: Rejoice evermore.

Titus 2:13: Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;

Titus 3:7: That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.

Hebrews 3:6: But Christ as a son over his own house; whose house are we, if we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm unto the end.

2. Wait patiently for the coming of the Lord.

Romans 2:7: To them who by patient continuance in well doing seek for glory and honour and immortality, eternal life:

2 Thessalonians 3:5: And the Lord direct your hearts into the love of God, and into the patient waiting for Christ.

Hebrews 12:1: Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,

James 5:7: Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord. Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter rain.

3. Praying for enablement to be found ready at His coming.

Colossians 4:12: Epaphras, who is one of you, a servant of Christ, saluteth you, always labouring fervently for you in prayers, that ye may stand perfect and complete in all the will of God.

1 Peter 4:7: But the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer.

Revelation 13:10: He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.

His grace shall abide and abound in your life in Jesus name.

2 Corinthians 9:8. And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work:
