Battles Do Test Us#
14 March, 2019
None will see God's greatness in life if they are not first grateful to Him.
Whatever went “wrong” was making a way for what is “right” to come into your life.
Life is so much more freeing when you’re not controlled by what people say; you’re not offended when someone is rude, you’re not sour when traffic is bad, you’re not upset because the flight is delayed.
Peace is liberated to the spirit and soul when you have learned to overcome offence, and not bank it.
Those who hold to bitterness are senseless, supplied by a grieved heart. (See Psalm 73:21-22)
When you’ve tapped into the power to remain calm, you know God is on the throne; He’s fighting your battles.
You can’t control what people do; you can’t control what they say. You can control how you respond, and not allow your joy to be stolen.
Whatever challenge you're facing, know that our Lord Jesus is here to help you. He says to you,
"Don't be afraid. Take courage. I am here" (Matthew 14:27)
The battle you are fighting won’t last forever. God has an appointed time for your victory.
Take heart, stand strong!
In battles there are testings, but in the testing he who perseveres gains the goodness of the Lord. For, God has become his refuge.
