I know the Lord is always with me. I will not be shaken, for he is right beside me. Psalm 16:8 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation
This is something that needs to be drilled into every Christians head until it just becomes second nature.
Being a Christian means suffering and hard times. It means being picked on and abused by society and friends.
The worst part is when you are treated like a freak in church because you want to talk about Jesus in your life. I have experienced that in every church I have attended down through the decades.
Yes , we all go through tough times , welcome to life. Suffering for Jesus means you stand for godliness instead of following the world. You stick out like a huge pimple on someones nose. Joseph a son of Jehovah
You also make yourself a target for the liberals who enjoy dancing with the devil. Your lifestyle convicts them of how wicked and foolish they are and that greatly offends them.
But , through it all , The Holy Spirit is walking right beside you. He blesses you with strength , wisdom , gracefulness and meekfulness , to not only endure it but to prosper through it.
No , I do not mean in material wealth but rather in spiritual wealth.
Because of your hardship , it brings you ever closer to Jehovah , Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit. Joseph a son of Jehovah
Not only that , but , your example encourages other Christians.
And , there are those in the world that will be drawn to Jehovahs family by your example.
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-‘Uzam (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble Isaiah 49:26 ) for blessing me with Your Divine strength to not only endure but to grow stronger through the abuse heaped upon me by those that prefer to dance with the devil than walk with You. Thank you for blessing me with the honour that my example leads some to You. I exalt You in the name of He whose example I follow al the way to our Heavenly Home , Jesus Christ. Amen
May your example guide many to Jesus Christ. Joseph a son of Jehovah
Would you please pray for our sister pray for Sahil, a Christian in Pakistan for her protection and that many in the school she has set up comes to Christ through her?
