STAND FIRM

Is there a lot junk that’s going on all around you right now?  Are there people who are annoying you and things happening around you that you just don’t understand?  Well join the club.  Nobody’s life is perfect!   Notice I use the words all around you, not in you. God always puts people and circumstances in our paths to test our faith and our response.  What He requires is that we, STAND FIRM…STAND FIRM…STAND FIRM… even in the midst of what is going on around us. 

I have learned that even if the world around me chooses to go to hell, I am not going to waiver; I am, however, going to keep my focus only on God and His promises.  If they choose not to have peace, He is my peace, my strength and my comforter.  We must never allow the devil to steal the peace and joy that only Jesus can give.  Jesus even told us “In the world you will have tribulations, but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” John 16:33 We don’t have long to wait before we either stand before Him, or He stands before us.

PRAYER 4 TODAY

My prayer is that your loved ones come to know that truth before it’s too late. We have been left on earth for a reason and we know it is to pray for and encourage the lost.  God has you right where He wants you, you’re the best at what you do, intervene and bless those around you.  If you think life is bad now IMAGINE LIVES WITHOUT YOU IN THEM!!! 

THOUGHT 4 TODAY

Who would be there for them?
