Hang in There

Verse of the Day:  Romans 8:18     

I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.        

It’s not always easy being a Christian in the current condition and culture of this world. Sin is running rampant and people are trying to take God out of everything. But we who believe need to stand firm and hold on to the Word of God. Even when it seems hard to be strong in our faith and it feels like we are constantly fighting to survive we need to continue to be faithful because our sufferings are only for a moment but our glory and reward will be eternal. Nothing we go through here in this lifetime can compare in the least to how wonderful heaven will be. We know that in heaven there will no more death, mourning, crying or pain and it will all be worth it when we are in the presence of God all mighty.

Start Your Day with Prayer

Verse of the Day:  1 Corinthians 16:13         

Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong.           

Whether you realize it or not, the enemy, the ruler of darkness and evil is constantly waging spiritual battles against you and you never know what the new day may bring. Be vigilant and always on guard, consciously abstaining from sin. Stand firm in your beliefs, in the doctrine and true Word of God. Be brave and courageous as a soldier in God’s army knowing that through Christ the victory is already yours. Start each day with prayer asking the Lord to be with you and to give you courage and strength to face whatever comes your way.

You Can Face Tomorrow

2 Chronicles 20 17

Verse of the Day: 2 Chronicles 20:17

You will not have to fight this battle. Take up your positions; stand firm and see the deliverance the LORD will give you, Judah and Jerusalem. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. Go out to face them tomorrow, and the LORD will be with you.

God knows the battles you face each day. Some of us have physical battles we have to live with, some of us have emotional battles from the past that we need to work through and some of us are fighting spiritual battles against the enemy on a daily basis. You don’t have to be afraid and you don’t have to be discouraged. You are a soldier of Christ so put on the full armor of God. Show up, stand firm in your faith and trust in the Lord to protect you, to fight for you and to give you the victory. You are not alone and you can face tomorrow with the help of the Lord.

Give Yourselves Fully

1 corinthians 15 58

Verse of the Day:  1 Corinthians 15:58

Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.

Stand firm, let nothing move you and don’t give up. Keep doing the work (your ministry) and all the good works the Lord has called you to do and do them with all of your heart for the honor and glory of the Lord. God will equip you and strengthen you to accomplish His purpose and to be fruitful. Every good work is useful for God’s kingdom, edification and the saving of lives. The Lord sees everything you do and He will never forget the love you demonstrate to His people. Nothing you do for Him is ever in vain or a waste of your time and effort. By His grace you will be rewarded in heaven so give yourself fully to the work of the Lord.

Set Free

Galatians 5 1

 Verse of the Day:  Galatians 5:1

It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.

Jesus died on the cross for you so that you could be freed from sin and be made right with God. When you accept Jesus into your life you are freed from a life of sin. You are set free from the chains that bind you including the control, guilt and shame that sin has over you. There is power in the name of Jesus to break every chain that tries to restrain you and keep you living in a life of sin. When you are born again you become a new creation with a new way of thinking. You are given a second chance to be who God created you to be. Stand firm in your faith now and don’t go back to whatever sin God has already freed you from. You have the freedom to boldly come before the throne of grace and the power to be victorious!
