Oh what a timely message!!!
We're all facing some trials and tribulations but we must make a decision to KEEP STANDING! You're more than conquerors. If you think you're not going to make it through this time...guess what you're wrong.. you've gone through tough times before and as you rise above each obstacle and go to a higher level there are more obstacles for you to overcome. Take your eyes off the challenge and keep your eyes on God and KEEP STANDING! God Bless!
"Therefore 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"
(Ephesians 6:13, NIV)
TODAY'S WORD from Joel and Victoria
Sometimes, people have problems because they are making poor choices or doing something wrong. But other times, people are having difficulties because they are doing something right.
When you're determined to fulfill your God-given destiny, and you're taking steps to improve your life or make a difference in your family or community, don't be surprised if you face opposition. The enemy is not going to just roll out the red carpet and watch you fulfill your God-given destiny. He'll do whatever he can to keep you from moving forward. The Apostle Paul said this, "A wide door of opportunity is open for me and there are many adversaries." I've found anytime you try to go forward in life, anytime you try to make progress, there will be opposition. But with God on your side, you can stand your ground! Greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world. If you're facing opposition today, keep standing, keep believing, keep hoping. Keep fighting the good fight of faith until you see the victory He has in store for you!
A PRAYER FOR TODAY
" Heavenly Father, thank You for Your promise of victory. I choose today to take my eyes off my challenges and focus on You. Thank You for equipping me with Your armor so that I can stand strong in You. In Jesus' Name. Amen."
