497 Practicing the Truth Requires a Real Price

I

When difficulties come, hurry up and pray:

“O God! I wish to satisfy You,

I wish to endure the final hardship to satisfy Your heart.

Regardless of how great the setbacks I encounter,

still I must satisfy You.

Even if I have to give up my whole life, still I must satisfy You!”

With this resolve, when you pray thus,

you will be able to stand firm in your testimony.

Each time people practice the truth,

each time they undergo refinement and trials,

each time God’s work comes upon them,

they have to endure extreme pain.

All of this is a test for people,

and so within all of them there is a battle.

This is the actual price that they pay.


II

If, in a certain environment, you have something you want to say,

but inside you feel that saying it is not right,

that saying it does not benefit your brothers and sisters

and may hurt them,

then you will not say it, preferring to be pained within,

for these words are incapable of satisfying God’s will.

At this time, there will be a battle inside you,

but you will be willing to suffer pain and give up what you love.

You will be willing to endure this hardship to satisfy God,

and although you will suffer pain inside,

you will not pander to the flesh,

and God’s heart shall have been satisfied,

and so you will also be comforted inside.

This is truly paying a price, and is the price desired by God.
