I know in these days and times a lot of people are discouraged, but don’t be, because God is still in the business of answering prayers. The Bible says “faith without works is dead.” You must have faith that Jesus will do what He says He will do! Prayers aren’t always answered right away, matter of fact, most times they aren’t answered right away. However, He always answers our prayers in one way or another. It’s not always as we would like, but nevertheless He knows what’s best for us.
I encourage you my sisters and brothers in Christ to stay strong! Don’t look at your problems, rather look at your praise! No matter how hard, no matter what it is, keep giving Him the praise! In this life we will constantly go through our hills and valleys, but He’s the God of those hills and valleys. You’re not alone!
We all go through and we will do so until our time on this earth is over. People can grow as they go through or they can allow their struggles to defeat them. Everything we go through is a testimony of strength and endurance for other people. It is also a reminder to us to see where He has brought us through!
Nothing in life is easy, sometimes it seems harder when you’re living for Jesus the Son and God the Father. It’s because the devil is always looking for soldiers especially those who have given their lives to Jesus and are living for Him. Sometimes it makes you cry out, Lord, Lord. Sometimes it makes you feel as if you can’t make it, but trust me you can and you will! The devil is here to “steal, kill, and destroy.” Our God in Heaven is here to “give us life and life more abundantly.” Life can be hard, it can deal some heavy blows, YOU can take it and definitely make it, because you belong to the God who sits high and looks low!
Don’t allow doubt and discouragement to rob you of what God has for you! Jesus and our Father God wants us to stay strong and not be discouraged. We shouldn’t doubt either, we must believe He is who He say He is! The devil and his soldiers are doing everything they can to attack God’s children. They are going after our physical bodies, our mental states of minds, and our very souls. They want to destroy God’s children. My sisters and brothers the devil is a defeated foe under your feet. You have the power to give him a TKO in the name of Jesus!
If you don’t believe you have power you will act as if you don’t and ultimately render yourselves powerless against the tricks of the enemy. The Holy Spirit is here to lead and guide God’s people, but we must walk always by “faith and not by sight.” Don’t wait until you’re going through something to activate your power. Use the power Jesus gave us and allow the Holy spirit to work in you and through you. Seek Jesus in all you do. Stand strong against the attacks of the enemy. Be a true warrior for Jesus, because one day He’s coming back and He’s going to be ready for battle. Stand strong, stay strong, and continue to stay on the side of the Great and Mighty King Jesus. One day you will hear Him say “well done my good and faithful servant.” I don’t know about you, but that is what I want to hear Him tell me.
The Bible says “watch and pray.” We have to continue to stay prayed up! We must pray without cease. God is still on the throne and He’s still in charge and control. Don’t think otherwise, because if you do it’s a way the devil can get into your mind and try to take over. “Resist the devil and he will flee.” I won’t say he’s not coming back again and again, but I do say KEEP RIGHT ON RESISTING! Stay in the race and your reward will be great!! Keep holding on, keep believing, and keep trusting in Jesus!
