The Worst of them all

Verse of the Day

This is a trustworthy saying, and everyone should accept it: “Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners”–and I am the worst of them all. [NLT] 1 Timothy 1:15

…..

BUT He saved me. Trust me, there is no greater gift than this, and no greater peace than having this knowledge. There is no greater trouble, circumstance or problems in this life that should make any of us forget that in spite of everything, Jesus came to this world to save us. You may be experiencing some kind of loss, some kind of rejection, even hurt and resentment. But if you could but only think on this, your priceless gift of salvation, you will realise that everything else pales in comparison to this wonderful knowledge, this wonderful assurance, this wonderful acceptance, that Jesus didn’t just love you, He died to give you a fighting chance to become free. A fighting chance I say, because many still don’t realise that whatever battles they may be facing in life, because of the finished work of Christ on the cross; that automatically makes them an overcomer. That His death of the cross guarantees you victory! The question therefore is do you want to be free? Do you want to be victorious? Do you know that you can be victorious? Why don’t you try Jesus today, and I promise you, you will never regret that decision. I’m still having the time of my life. The journey may not be easy, but believe me, in Him, it will be all worth it! #Verseoftheday #Bible #Jesus #victory #victorious #Overcomer #Salvation #Saviour #Saved

Too wonderful to fail you

Verse of the Day

“Don’t let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, and trust also in me. [NLT] John 14:1

…..

There are so many things, even current world news and developments that can greatly depress the mind. Here Jesus encourages and comforts His disciples about the need in trusting God the Father and in Him [Jesus]. The encouragement is also for you. Are there some situations that are seemingly unbearable, Jesus is saying to you Trust in Him! This is the time to exercise your faith in God the Father and in His son Jesus Christ. And because your trust is in them, you will have peace of mind, not just for time, but for eternity. The peace Jesus gives is not like the sort the world gives (He said so in John 14:27), His peace is the best way to be rid of all your heart troubles. And you know that He can be trusted to do exactly what He promised He will do for you. Trust Him! He will never fail you!  #Verseoftheday #Bible #Devotional

Tempting times are common

Verse of the Day

The temptations in your life are no different from what others experience. And God is faithful. He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand. When you are tempted, he will show you a way out so that you can endure. [NLT] 1 Corinthians 10:13

……

This is such a wonderful encouragement in that it tells you that whatever it is that you’re going through is not uncommon to you. That is to say, whatever struggles, challenges or trials that are making your life unbearable at the moment, can also happen to others. There are others facing also uncertainty with their jobs / business, struggling with one form of financial difficulty or even having marital problems. Your struggles are not just synonymous to you! However, who cares, if it’s happening or can happen to others, what matters is how is affecting you, right? How true is that statement! Indeed problems are an unwelcomed intruder, but when they do come, be encouraged! You must know that the Lord will show you a way out of them all. He will not let them engulf/take your life. There will be victory at the end of it all. Remain encouraged, and keep trusting God. It will definitely work out for you, and that’s all that matters. #Verseoftheday #Bible #Devotional #CommonTemptations
