Are you discouraged? Feeling down and out? Are you wondering why you should even bother trying to live the Christian life more, especially since you seem to have failed?
Who sometimes didn’t feel worth it? Who did not grow impatient with themselves and felt sick because of their lack of spiritual progress? (Luke 8:15). YOU ARE NOT YOURSELF! We all go through those valleys in the shadow of death. But take courage: the way must come to the fore again soon! “Why art thou cast down, O my soul? And why art thou disquieted within me? Trust in God: for I shall yet praise him, who is the health of my countenance, and my God” (Psalm 42:11).
Who would encourage you to quit? Does Christ want you to give him up? Who DIED for you? Would God pressure you to surrender? Too many people have never realized that we have to face a vicious animal and enemy. Even those who did not reject the devil as a superstition did not realize how dangerous it is for our health and well-being. God takes the pieces of life that are torn and torn apart and left dead by sin (Isa. 49: 24-25; Amos 3:12).
Satan’s foam at his mouth is against our incredible human potential and he wants to take us out like a slip – one at a time. All mankind hates with mad rage (because we are created after mankind), but it is especially aimed at the brethren (1 Pet. 5: 8-11).
The Devil can take some things that are true about you and immerse them, take them out of context, and blow them all upside down with DESTROY of your will to survive. It never stops a bad word for us because ASSASSIN AND LIAR CHARACTERISTICS MURDEROUS! (John 8:44; Rev. 12:10). But do not let the powers of darkness overcome your will to live in the light. Do not accept the melancholy attitude of Satan. Don’t rely on his optimistic attitude towards the chase. He has no right to criticize (Rom. 8: 1,33).
King David would be opposed, but he would end his prayers on a positive note, showing the healing effect of the Spirit of God on our minds as we engage in HEARTFELT PROGRAMS. “I was fainted, if I hadn’t believe to see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart: wait, I say, on the Lord “(Psalm 27: 13-14). David believed in the goodness of God, hoped in his mercy, and waited. waiting for His sufficient grace – whether grace to forgive or empower Him (2 Cor. 12: 9).
God will give us grace to bear the many burdens of life (Heb. 4:16). His Holy Spirit enables us to be gracious – full of grace – even in adverse circumstances. We are live and learn by grace in word and deed, in attitude and action. David knew in a shadow of a doubt: “The Lord will give strength to his people: the Lord will bless his people with strength” (Psalm 29:11). So “Be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart, all ye that hope in the Lord” (Psalm 31:24).
Even if you are caught, your sins have taken you far from God, and Satan keeps you captive (2 Tim. 2:26; 1 Cor. 5: 5), remember God and he will remember you. He never forgot you: “But Zion said, The Lord hath forsaken me, and my Lord hath forgotten me. Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? they may forget, but I will not forget you. Behold, I have loved you with the palms of my hands; your walls are continually before me “(Isa. 49: 14-16). God’s love for us goes far beyond our love for him. He proved this when Jesus’ poles were driven through them (Zech. 13: 6).
Some have been falsely deceived by sin and are recklessly trapped again – trapped in a danger zone – but as long as they do not give up they CAN overcome what they have just overcome (Heb. 3:13; 2 Pet. . 2: 20). Only those who have completely turned their backs on God, who refuse a backup when they are laid down in the ring, will forfeit the victory.
And yet for all this (in spite of ourselves), when they are in the land of their enemies, I will not wear them, nor hate them, to destroy them utterly, and break my covenant with them: for I am the Lord their God “(Lev. 26:44).
God promises to be released, transferred, and restored. He will free us from those sins that have cruelly kept our time and attention, restoring our spiritual senses – since Satan’s psychological warfare has left a case of baskets and scattering (Luke 22: 31-32; Deut. 28: 66-67) – and to restore us to holiness and a right relationship with him (where we belong), even “If any part of you is driven to the farthest reaches of heaven, then the Lord will gather for you are God, and from thence he will receive you ”(Deut. 30: 3-4). No matter how far you have gone astray, God has not lost sight of you. “Where shall I flee from your Spirit? Or where shall I escape from your presence?” (Psalm 139: 7).
If you start shouting at God for help, even if it’s just a whimper because you are so weak, He will see and hear and respond. “The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit. And none of them that trust in him shall be desolate” (Psalm 34: 18,22). “For I will not contend for ever, I will not be angry for ever: for the spirit shall fail before me, and the souls that I have made … I have seen his ways and will heal him: I will also lead him, and comfort them. to restore to him his sorrow “(Isa. 57: 15-18).
God sees the trouble we have received and the place where our reversal of sin has misled us and deflected us dangerously, making us almost unrepentant, but NO can separate you from God’s love if you do not allow it. (Rom. 8: 35- 39). As long as there is a Spark of God’s Spirit, God can renewal to change our minds and our lives (Psalm 51:10). God will finish what He began in our lives (Phil. 1: 6; Isa. 66: 9). Don’t forget that we worship God MIRACLE WORK!
Remember that the polite son was still far away from his father, their relationship deteriorated, but when he “recovered” and went home – even when he was still great way out – “his father saw him, and was moved with compassion, and ran, and fell on his neck, and kissed him” (Luke 15:17, 20).
God knows where you are and in what direction you are in your heart and mind even if your actions are not yet caught up in your attitude! God knows they will, with time. “For he remembers our frame (make-up); He remembers that we are nothing but dust” (Ps.103: 14). God wants to encourage us to change, not to discourage us from even trying (2 Cor. 2: 7).
Constructive, not destructive criticism. Judgment with mercy. God helps but Satan hinders progress, but we CONQUER BY CONTINUING, one step at a time (1 Theses. 2:18; 2 Pet. 3:18). God gave the Kingdom to David, but he had to fight for it! So we do (Matt. 11:12; I Tim. 6:12). Otherwise we would accept it voluntarily. Keep up the struggle (Luke 13:24). It’s worth fighting for all the things you believe in. Growth comes in stages. We must patiently allow our trials to run their course and create the character of God in us (Heb. 12:11; Jas. 1: 4).
Satan wants to turn off your light (I Tim. 4:16). The holy chambers of the Spirit of God hate the light and truth which we hold and represent, as a royal priesthood (1 Pet. 2: 9; John 17:17; Ex. 27:20). God does not kick us when we are down and out, but He encourages us to receive it and go on and on with His work (Psalm 37:24; Philip. 3:13). When your faith strikes and your trust is broken, Christ will not reach you but will add more oil so that we may rise up and enjoy it (Isa. 42: 3). “For God did not appoint us to be angry, but to attain SALVATION … Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do” (1 Thesis. 5: 9). -11).
“For God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us … For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God; Through the death of his Son, much more, in redemption, we will be saved through his life … through which we received salvation “(Rom. 8-11).
If God can express that love to us when we did not even want to enjoy a Christian life, how much more do we want now, how imperfect is it? Are we not suffering because of hunger and thirst for righteousness? The brothers respect you holy suffering! It is working OBJECTIVE in your life that will last forever! Growing pains hurt.
We should love God more when we reflect on his mercy and patience toward us. His goodness should inspire us to want to draw closer to Him and do all we can to show how much we appreciate His tender love (Rom. 2: 4; Luke 7:47). Nothing should get in the way of our relationship with our Creator God! If God would save our ancestors again and again, when they called him, how much more will it save us from Lake of Fire? (Jude 23, 24).
God can save us from sinful situations and restore to us the promise of his priesthood (Zech. 3). We can be a “brand drawn out of the fire,” saved from the “furnace of distress” (Isa. 48:10). God can forcibly remind us of the hard way that He really needs us, His satisfying Kingdom and His righteousness, not the shallow things that could not fill the void in life (Psalm 106: 15; 107: 9) .
We have to keep going creams remembering the meaning and purpose of life: to develop the holy character, the right of God in joyful anticipation of the Kingdom of God. This will help us face all the challenges that life brings us in this purification process that we call conversion. We need to remember: “There is no temptation built on you but what is common [not unusual] man: but God is UNDER NOTICE, that you will not allow your temple to be above your level of concession; but it will provide a way out with all minds, so that you may be able to handle it ”(1 Cor. 10:13).
And understand “… it is not worthwhile to compare the suffering of our time with the Valley that will be revealed in us” (Rom. 8:18) because Christ will soon return and all practicing Christians will be made perfect. Then we will help our Savior pave the way for the awesome coming of our Father with NEW JERUSALEM! (Rev. 21: 3).
The Kingdom of God is closer every day, so we should keep our heads up and not be discouraged, but allow ourselves to be INSPECTED to continue (Isa. 35: 3; Luke 21:28). All stumble, but do not wallow (Psalm 37:24). Let your attitude; “I will not die, but live, and establish the works of the Lord. The Lord hath dealt bountifully with me: but he hath not brought me to death “(Psalm 118: 17-18). Halleluiah!
God’s forgiveness and Christ’s cleansing power are still in place (Isa. 18). God knows what we have been through and He has passed through us, thick in it, bearing His Crown of Thorns (Isa. 63: 9; Gen. 22:13; Ex. 3: 2). God could not go much closer (Jer. 23:23). The bottom line is: have hope and not despair; religion and not afraid! After all, “… it is a great pleasure for the Father to give you the Kingdom” (Luke 12:32).
