Does it feel like the world around you has gone crazy? Does it seem like your world, your life has been turned upside down? Does it feel like you’re fighting an uphill battle? Does the mountain or the enemy you’re facing seem overwhelming?
You are not alone in your battle. I am a true believer that no matter how bad or how difficult a situation is, there is always someone, somewhere that has already fought the same battle that you are facing and there is always someone facing something far worse.
I also know that when you’re in the midst of a battle it feels like no one could possibly understand what you are going through. I’m here to tell you that is absolutely not true. God does. No matter what is going on in your life, in our country, in our world…HE KNOWS, GOD CARES and HE IS GREATER AND STRONGER THAN ANY BATTLE YOU ARE FACING.
John 14:1 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me
John 14:6 Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
If God didn’t know that we were going to face hardships and trials in this life, He would not have sent Christ to show us and tell us how to face them. HE IS THE WAY. HE IS THE WAY out of all difficulties. HE IS THE WAY to end the Chaos in your life and in the world.
John 14:26 But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you.
He would not have sent the Holy Spirit as our Helper after Christ rose to heaven.
John 16:7-8 Nevertheless I tell you the truth. It is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I depart, I will send Him to you. And when He has come, He will convict the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:
Romans 8:26 Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses.
And there is POWER and strength when you call out the Name of JESUS.
“Therefore, God elevated him to the place of highest honor and gave him the name above all other names, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth.” –Philippians 2:9-10
God also tells us how to fight against Evil and how to stay strong when we find ourselves in a battle or when our world is falling apart.
Ephesians 6: 10-18
Finally, be strong in the LORD and in his mighty power. 11Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
13Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
18And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the LORD’s people.
You are not alone. We are standing as God’s Children, His Heirs, as an ARMY of God.
IN OUR WEAKEST TIMES GOD IS STRONGEST.
2 Corinthians 12:7-10…there was given me a thorn in my flesh, a messenger of Satan, to torment me. 8 Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. 9 But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. 10 That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
Keeping You, Our Country and Our World in my prayers. BE STRONG IN THE LORD.
