Blessed are you when men shall revile you and persecute you and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely for my sake. Matthew 5:11
Can you believe it’s October already! Doesn’t it seem like the days are speeding by at a furious pace. On the other hand, have you noticed when there is drama in your life the day and nights seem to never end.
You must come to realize my Christian brothers and sisters that when the enemy attacks you it’s not such a bad thing. Haven’t you noticed by now that the more trouble comes into your life the stronger you become? And I know that sometimes you feel like giving up, especially when the vicissitudes of life are continually slapping you in the face. Nevertheless, experience should tell you that’s when you need to go to God’s gym where you can raise your level of consecration. So instead of sitting around the break room or cafeteria this week bemoaning and gossiping, sit in your car or find a quiet room, or even take a walk by yourself so you can get some tips from, The Holy Spirit, your personal trainer.
The Bible tells us to be strong not in ourselves, but in Him. (Ephesians 6:10-20) Gear up my brothers and sisters and let God show you how He is here to fight for you in times of war. Know that you will be victorious if you understand and believe that the fight is not your concern. (II Chronicles 20:15)
I urge you to take your training seriously this week. Know that God is training you for the main event, so don’t try to pass on your sparring lessons. Take heed and let the Holy Spirit lead you to the main event—victorious Christian living, in Jesus name, Amen!
You will win IF you don’t quit!
