Challenges are always part of the equation in one’s life. God never promised a trial-free life but what He promised is that IN CHRIST, there is PEACE! IN CHRIST, there is a nothing-missing, nothing-broken life. He has deprived the world of its power to harm us and has conquered it for us. Thank You, Jesus.
“I have told you these things, so that IN ME you may have [PERFECT] PEACE and CONFIDENCE. In the world you have tribulation and trials and distress and frustration; but BE OF GOOD CHEER [take courage; be confident, certain, undaunted]! For I have overcome the world. [I have deprived it of power to harm you and have conquered it for you.]” John 16:33 AMPC
Even death has lost its sting that secured us the position without separation from HIM by the power of the Blood of Jesus. Nothing and no one can separate us from His love. Nothing and no one can separate us from HIMSELF and with this in mind, who dare be against us?
Yes, life is tough at times but God is ever faithful to fulfill the promise that He has given us. He has a DIVINE REPUTATION of finishing what He has started. He is the author and the finisher of our faith. He is the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End. He is ABLE and WILLING! He desires and delights to see us live a GOOD and GLORIOUS life for that’s the purpose why you and I are here … called, chosen, cleansed, filled, anointed and empowered to fulfill the destiny that He has for us. It’s not going to be easy but very much possible ALL BY HIS GRACE AND MERCY. We know that nothing is impossible with God and ALL things are possible to those who believe that we have a God Who majors in the impossibilities of life and make them possible … not by might nor by power but by the Spirit of God.
The Holy Spirit is our Helper and He is in our midst. The only way is to acknowledge His presence in our lives. We live and move and have our being in Him. We press in to know Him, His thoughts and His ways for they are higher than ours. We listen and we obey knowing that He knows what is best for us. LIFE IS GOOD because we have A GOOD GOD Who is always in a GOOD MOOD! As we journey WITH HIM and IN HIM, challenges begin to dim in the light of His presence and our situations start to change.
“The thief comes ONLY in order to steal and kill and destroy. I CAME that they may HAVE and ENJOY live, and HAVE IT IN ABUNDANCE (to the full, till it OVERFLOWS).” John 10:10 AMPC
