2 Corinthians 4:8-9
King James Version (KJV)
8 We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair;
9 Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed;
Brothers & Sisters, I know it’s been a rocky road getting to where you are right now. I know there have been times when you were so tempted to give up. You are still running this race because He that began a good work in you will see it through until the day of Christ Jesus. Also because we know whom we have believed and are persuaded that He is able to keep that which we have committed unto Him against that day. He keeps us, we cannot keep ourselves. When you find yourself doubting, faithless with your trust in The Lord wavering, remember that If we believe not, yet he abideth faithful: he cannot deny himself. God does NOT give up on His Children. Nothing can pluck you from His Hand! Rejoice oh Child of God! Your redemption is ever so nigh! Remember that our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory; While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal. YOU ARE MORE THAN A CONQUEROR THROUGH HIM THAT LOVED YOU!
So step out into the world today knowing WHO you belong to. The accuser of The Brethren is running to and fro, attacking God’s People full force, so lift one another up in prayer throughout the day. God bless you all, keep looking up!
