It is Impossible for a Christian

A STOUT HEART

This is why we work hard and continue to struggle, for our hope is in the living God. 1 Timothy 4:10 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

It is impossible for a Christian to give up. We all work hard at being acceptable children to our Heavenly Father.

Yes there are going to be constant struggles.

Christianity is one war that continues until we reach Heavens gate. Just when one battle is finished and we rest a little another one begins. So many times we feel exhausted and defeated. We desire to give it all up and walk away. But, as Christians when we go before our Heavenly Father, He blesses us with strength, wisdom and the weapons to continue the fight. The longer we are in this battle the stronger our hope is in our Heavenly Father.

Now hope here is not the same as hoping to win the lottery. Rather it means confidence in Our Heavenly Fathers care, provision and deliverance and the eternal Heavenly home He has prepared for us.

“God never promises to remove us from our struggles. He does promise, however, to change the way we look at them.” — Max Lucado

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Ori (the Lord is my Light) for enlightening me with Divine insight into the reason for the constant battles that must be fought on a daily basis in every Christians life ( including mine). This gift encourages me on when all seems lost to victory which glorifies You. I joyously praise You in the name of He whose empty grave brought eternal victory to oh so many. Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with abundant joy in your heart filled with love and your life overflowing with laughter every day this year.

How to Care for Each Other.

Finally, all of you be of one mind, having compassion for one another; love as brothers, be tenderhearted, be courteous. 1 Peter 3:8 New King James Version

You can do it so many ways every day.

When you are sitting on the bus or in a coffee shop, at school or work and you see someone who obviously is experiencing some emotional difficulties try to just sit next to them. Open the conversation with your own experience of how grateful you were to have someone to talk with during a difficult time. Then just let them know you are a good listener. If they ask you why you care just explain to them that you feel their pain and want to help them as you were helped.

Then listen more than talk. Ask questions at the right time. Do not be judgmental.

Maybe they need some professional help.

Carry around a list of governmental agencies with their contact information and share it with them. If necessary make the phone call for them or go there with them for support.

I have done it many times with great success.

“I do not ask the wounded person how he feels, I myself become the wounded person.” Walt Witman

Prayer: Please Jehovah Chanan (God of compassion ) bless me with a compassionate heart for those who You bring into my life that are hurting. Bless me with the wisdom to say the right words and take the right actions to help them. I humbly request this in the name of the one with the greatest compassionate heart Jesus Christ. .Amen

May the sunshine of Jesus sweet love bless you today and every day

He Will Care for Us When.

A LOST LITTLE GIRL

Even to your old age, I am He, And even to gray hairs I will carry you! I have made, and I will bear; Even I will carry, and will deliver you. Isaiah 46:4 New King James Version

I have previously written an article about this so please have patience while I reiterate again.

 

If you invest in retirement plans they can go bankrupt or for some financial reason fail you.

Serving the Lord seldom brings financial security from my experience.

Your health eventually fails you.

The one who will never fail you is Jehovah. You are His beloved children and when you place your life and faith in Him, He promises to never leave you nor forsake you. He never lies and never goes back on His promises.

That does not mean you will retire in a condo somewhere and sip pina conatas ob the beach.

 

It does mean you will live in peace and security knowing He is taking care of you.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emanah (God is faithful) for promising to take good care of me in my old age. It brings peace and comfort to my soul. I thank you in the name of He who cared for all He came in contact with as He walked amongst us Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
