Christ’s Love Will Sustain You, When You Have Your Trust In Him!
There are so many promises in the Bible. If we lived by each promise our life would be so much better. Today, my thought went to how we battle our battles, and how important is to remember to step back and “let Jesus” do His work in us.
Life in the realm of a chaotic world is often hard for everyone, and that includes a Christian. We experience the vicissitudes of life just like everyone else. However, we have the Lord’s promises that there is nothing that can separate us from His love. The Holy Bible tells us there is nothing we will ever experience that is not common to man. So, how do we accomplish this when it all gets too stressful? We buckle up, get on our knees, give Him thanks for where we are, and read His assuring word.
“There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to beat it.” 1Corinthians 10: 13 (KJV)
“Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?”
”Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:35, 39
“My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations (manifold temptations-AMS-version): v 3 knowing this, that the trying of faith worketh patience.” James 1: 2, 3
As we search for answers to set our mind at ease, we need to remember these blessed scriptures. These verses tell us that we are human, common men and women, and they then tell us that the Lord will go before, and help us to bear the temptation and give us an escape.
We are to make note, and to have joy as these manifold temptations test our faith, and will create more patience. We are told that nothing can separate us from the love and peace of God, which passeth all understanding.
“And the peace of God, which passeth all understand, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:7
Now, that we have given the scripture to go to, let’s talk about how to let the enemy know that we are going to trust Christ Jesus for our escape and deliverance.
Have you ever just sat down and told the enemy to leave you alone? I have, and it works, because he is out to make you sad, feel weary, have fear, and feel destitute. The mind is a powerful tool that we must use as Christians to let the one who tries to dictate our day with the negative that he cannot control what we feel.
As one scripture states; we have the mind of Christ, (1 Corinthians 2: 16) and we need to let Satan know that we have power within us to fight our battles with God’s full representation and His words of deliverance.
We must realize that just because we are saved, we are not exempt for the processes of life, not until we walk the last mile. Yes, we have many promises and it is necessary for us to take advantage of those promises by speaking the Word of God to the negative force.
