Good Monday morning, friends! Let’s start this week off on the right foot — knowing that we have side-stepped some obstacles just to get here today. Maybe you woke up late, didn’t have your Wheaties, or perhaps your give-a-d*amn is busted. Well, let’s kick those crummy feelings to the side just like you’ve done so many times before. Chin up, stand up straight, and fix your eyes on the prize — Our Creator!
“You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.” 1 John 4:4 (Biblia.com)
“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.” ~ John 16:33 (Bible Gateway)
Chew on these two meaty verses. I pray that they sustain you for the week (if not a lifetime). God never promised that we wouldn’t encounter trouble in our lives, but he did promise never to leave us or forsake us. Some of our roughest battles teach us just how strong we are as long as we stay in the fight. We don’t quit. We pray! Fall on your knees and ask God to command his angels concerning you to guard you in all our ways. Then expect him to move. As long as your desires are in sync with his plan, you’re in good hands. Nothing is impossible for God. He can do all things but fail.
