We will all face challenges in this life! Some small and some big! But it's how we choose (I say choose) to handle the storms and challenges that come our way. With God in our life, we have the strength to overcome because He has overcome for us! Trials and tribulations come and we can't escape them in this world. Jesus himself said that they are in the world, but He has overcome for us.
It's a choice we make. Is it easy? Does it hurt? Do we sometimes feel like where is God? Doesn't He know what I'm going through? Why doesn't He stop it? We cry out to God for help, or maybe turn to something else, like drugs, etc. No it's not easy sometimes! Yes , it hurts! Yes, God knows exactly where we are and what is happening with us! Does He care? Yes, a thousand times, Yes! God is our only strength through the storms of life. Drugs and any other substance cannot take the place of God! The devil may lie to you and tell you it will, but the devil is a liar and there is no truth in him. He is out to deceive and destroy anyone he can! Only Jesus can give you the Victory and that peace that surpasses all understanding in a time when you and I should be falling totally apart!
God has given us His Son, Jesus! And not only that, He sent us His Word to read and meditate on and use in the face of the storms of life and the face of the enemy!
Yes, you and I have an enemy! He comes to steal, kill and destroy (John 10:10) and to try and stop you from believing in a Loving, Wonderful, Merciful God! Jesus, gave us an example to follow: He spoke to the storms and told them to be still! Every time He encountered the devil, He said to him, :"It is Written". He was talking about the word of God! Jesus rebuked the devil! Jesus has given us the right to use His Name, that at the Name of Jesus everything on earth, in heaven and under the earth must bow its knee! There is power in the Name of Jesus! As a Christian, He has given us the right to use His Name against the enemy! Let's use it! (Philippians 2:10) (John 14:13)
Whatever you may be going through today, turn to Jesus and and let Him show you the way. Forgive and turn the other cheek, and know that God has a plan and a purpose for you and me. Don't yield to the devil's lies!
Jesus is coming back soon! Do you know Him? Take time to pray and ask Jesus into your heart and trust in God. (John 3:16) He will heal, restore and bring peace back into your life! Then when the storms of life blow, you will have the strength because the Savior lives in you! God bless you and may you find peace, strength and most of all eternal life in Jesus today!
I believe you came in the flesh, died on the cross and rose on the third day. I ask you to forgive me of my sins and come into my heart to be my Savior. Thank you for saving me! Thank you my name is now written in the book of life! Amen
(Romans 10:9, 10& 13) (Rev 20:12)
I pray a special prayer for anyone who prayed that prayer. I ask you to guide them to all truth and to protect them from the enemy. Give them inner strength and guide them to a church that preaches your word. In Jesus Name, I pray, Amen
