So, I will strengthen them in the Lord, And they shall walk up and down in His name,” Says the Lord. Zechariah 10:12 NKJV
Sometimes we must speak from our own personal experience. God saved us from something (death and condemnation), for something (to be His witnesses here on the Earth). Jesus saved us so He can use us to reach other people with the Gospel!
I started sending out these messages thirteen years ago. God was speaking to me. Jesus stirred my soul with passion for Him. I felt like other people needed to hear what God was showing me. I needed an outlet to express what Jesus was doing in my life.
Jesus wants us to be so moved by Him we overflow into the lives of other people!
My family and I have fought through many hardships and trials. Jesus delivered us through every one of them. What did I learn? Life is a struggle. But the battle is the Lord’s. Victory is ours when we take a stand on the solid rock of faith in Jesus Christ!
In seasons of trials and tribulations we took a stand of faith in Jesus. During seasons of uncertainty we stood in faith on God’s promises. Jesus did not deliver us from our problems. Jesus delivered us safely through them!
God gave us the grace to experience joy in seasons of weeping and mourning. He gave us peace in the eye of the storm. We were not dragged down by our circumstances. We rose above them. We walked up and down the battlefield of life in Jesus mighty name!
We did not do it in our own strength. Our faith did not see us through trials and testing. Jesus did. We set the Lord always before us. He took our right hand and we were not moved. Jesus carried us when we could not go on. Jesus comforted us when we wept!
Is God your refuge and hiding place? Is He the answer to all your problems? Turn to Jesus today. Take your stand of faith on His promises!
God is not asking you to muster up an extra measure of faith. He is not asking you to harden yourself for battle or prepare and train yourself for the attacks of our enemy. God is calling you to fight the good fight of faith by surrendering to His will for your life.
Jesus will strengthen you. You can walk up and down the circumstances of your life in His name today!
Today may be your day to fight the good fight of faith. Take your stand on the promises of God. Trust Jesus with your circumstances. Jesus will give you the strength to walk up and down the obstacles and high hurdles of your life.
Do not be moved by trials and hardship. Be moved by the Spirit of God!
Your faith can overflow into the lives of people who need Jesus to carry them safely through the minefields of life in a fallen world. Take a stand of faith in Jesus today!
