Philippians 4:6-7 KJV
“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication and thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God which passeth all understanding shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”
I claim these verses for me and my family as we go through our trial. God is going to keep us as long as we keep our Redeemer in first place. The world of people that don’t know Jesus just think this is all crazy fairy tales but I know that God is real. Because I can pray to my God and He answers me. No, He doesn’t always give me what I want but He always gives me what I need.
Luke 6:27-28 tells us to love our enemies and do good to them that hate you. Bless those that curse you and pray for them which despitefully use you.
Does this sound like a god that hates people? He is love and wants everyone to believe in Him.
Luke 6:35 is also a good verse: “But love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them without expecting to get anything back. Then your reward will be great, and you will be children of the Most High, because he is kind to the ungrateful and wicked.”
Luke 9:56 is also a good verse. It says “For the Son of Man is not come to destroy men’s lives, but to save them.” Jesus doesn’t want to condemn anyone but He wants to give everyone life to the full.
I can tell you from experience and I’m really trying to drive this home so I’m not going to quit saying it:
There is no better high than serving our Lord and being filled with His Holy Spirit [or being in His presence].
When you are in the world the people that you thought were your friends will be gone in a minute, but not the Lord. He will stick closer to you than a brother. He will never leave you nor forsake you. When times are tough for us and it looks like all there is, is darkness, that’s when Jesus shines the brightest. He shows up and shows out for His people. He is not some weak God like the world thinks He is. He is a mighty warrior ready to go to war to save the lost and hurting to give them hope.
So let’s get the word out that the war against the devil and his minions is on and we are going to win because we serve a Living God that loves people and doesn’t want any to go to hell. We all have the Great Commission, now don’t get me wrong, you have to know that the time is right, that the Spirit is leading, and then have no fear about talking about our Jesus.
We love Jesus. He is always to be the main focus of anything that we say or do. he is always the Head. Amen.
