Courage in times of Adversity

Verse of the Day

So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most [NLT] Hebrews 4:16

……..

Sometimes after you’ve fought the good fight of faith, and it appears that your seen promised land is still in the distant nether regions, you next action is to stand your ground and not to give in. Not to sit down, while at the same time trying to explain to your heart why it’s time to stop fighting, or to stop hoping, or well to find an alternative land; sometimes all you need do is stand! You have come too far to give up! You’ve put up a brave fight to see it all be in vain! Ask God for courage, the courage to stand and see the vision a reality! Ask the Lord Jesus for His confidence, with which you can douse all fiery doubts back to oblivion. Your season of breakthrough has not left you behind and was never a lie! This year, albeit almost ended, you will still experience the reality (not the religiosity) of serving a Living and Mighty God. Your testimony this 2014 will still be an unending one, so don’t just give in just yet! Ask The “Ancient of Days” for the courage to stand, so that you will be able to see that promised “promise” was never a mirage! The promise of God over your life is an assured one, so keep on standing on that promise! Your life is not a mistake, your expectation is not a false one and you my friends are not alone! #VerseoftheDay #Devotional #Bible #Jesus #CourageInTimesOfAdversity #CourageToStand #God #Faith #Fight #FightOfFaith

 

Your fixed fight!

Verse of the Day

‘I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.’ [NIV] John 16:33

…………….

No evil plan of your adversary, challenger, rival or enemy of your progress will ever work? Why? Because whenever you are challenged, as Christ followers, the battles you face will always remain a fixed one, fixed to your advantage. Your battles will always end with you enduringly as the victor. You will always end up the winner, not the loser! And because you have Christ Jesus on board, you’ve already won. Yes you will have to go through the process, the fight of faith, but it is the end that matters, and  the Lord Jesus reminds us that the end of the trials, that challenges have already been determined to our advantage. So keep your faith alive, don’t be downcast because of how feirce the battle seems, don’t let it all unnerve you. Always remember how it will all end, and that should be enough motivation to spur you on to your excellent end. You’re already a winner in Christ Jesus. You best believe it! #Verseoftheday #Devotional #Bible #Jesus #FightOfFaith #YourFightIsAFixedFight
