Philippians 4:6-7 “6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in 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, do good to them that hate us, bless those that curse you and pray for those that despitefully use you. Does this sound like a God that hates people? He is love wants everyone to believe in Him.
Luke 6:35 is also a good verse: “35 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 childrenof the Most High, because he is kind to the ungrateful and wicked.”
Luke 9:56 is also a good verse: “For the Son of man is not come to destroy men’s lives, but to save them. And they went to another village” (KJV). This verse says that 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 because 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 that 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 and have no fear about talking about our Jesus and be Spirit led.
We love Jesus, He is always to be the main focus of anything we say or do. He is always the Head. Amen.
