This morning, I will say, yes, He will be with me throughout my life; in all my tests, trials, sorrows, and troubles. For I will say this is mine, all mine and I dare to confess my faith before the world; for I know God is with me and He is faithful.
Romans 8:11 states that, But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you (KJV).
Yes, the Holy Spirit, giving life to my body; leading me into all truth. I can go to God in faith, believing and ask for healing when I am sick, make it strong if it is weak, and pour into my spirit, the very consciousness of Christ. You can, too, for the believer is a victor and an overcomer. Satan has no power over the believer who goes to God in faith.
Now, Hebrews 13:20-21 becomes truly a reality; Now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, Make you perfect in every good work to do his will, working in you that which is well pleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ; to whom [be] glory for ever and ever. Amen. (KJV).
This truly becomes a vivid reality when we begin to confess what we are in Christ in the face of everything. Stand in faith, through every situation, every storm, trouble and trial, in all we do, STAND IN FAITH! We live in Christ: we move in Him and have our being in Him.
Yes, I believe God’s perfect plan is for all to be born again into the saving knowledge of Christ Jesus but just as we have seen in previous generations many have fallen away from God and refuse to believe in the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ because of their own selfish and lustful ways.
God has made it very clear in the Gospels that there is ONLY ONE WAY to God, and that is through His Son Jesus Christ. Christ is the only hope for eternity with God and is our only way to have a relationship with our Father, God. It is my prayer, right now, if you have not accepted Jesus as your personal Savior that you would make this commitment; ASK JESUS INTO YOUR HEART, repent, turn from your own ways and allow the Holy Spirit to guide and lead you into all truth.
The only hope for this generation is that they will see Christ in us as believers and that we STAND FIRM on the teachings of Christ. The importance of living a life of holiness and purity of life and obedience to God’s Word can not be compromised. In the Bible, GOD has made it very clear; IF YOU LOVE ME, you will obey me. If you love God, you will obey Him, and He shall be with you until the very end.
Today, there will be sorrows here on earth but you can be assured that the day is coming very soon when Christ will return for His Church and He will take away all sorrow, sickness, pain and death.
Both Heaven and Hell are real.
It is my prayer for ALL reading today’s thoughts that you will make Heaven your priority in life by living a Christ centered life, and with that said, you will make Heaven your home for eternity.
To make God our priority in life, we must love the Lord with ALL our hearts, our minds, our will, our emotions, and yes, all our soul, spirit, and body. CHRIST IN US THE HOPE OF GLORY.
Remember, as stated in Romans 8:28, And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to [his] purpose (KJV).
