A Tremendous Resolve To Win —
In The Pandemic of 2020.
I posted this article below a number of months ago and it came up when I started to go online.
Many of us are facing things we have never seen before; a world wide pandemic. We have become suddenly unemployed, we have been facing new hardships that have sprung upon us that no one could have anticipated.
Also, financial challenges that will have to be faced head-on even though there is a two trillion dollar stimulus package coming, we have to exercise great caution in how we use it.
But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power that is in us, will be of God, and not of us.
Greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world.. I can do all things through Christ Who strengthens me. He will be giving you wisdom that is pure and peaceable, full of mercy and good fruit.
He has been, and always will be, calling you by name. He will forever say to you:
“If My People who are called by My Name, will humble themselves and pray, and seek my Face, and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear them from Heaven; I will forgive their sins, and I will heal their land. My eyes will be open, and My ears attentive to prayer made in this place,” 2 Chronicles 7:14.
“Seek The LORD while He may be found; call upon Him while He is near,” Isaiah 55:6.
“Trust in The LORD with all of your heart; lean not upon your own understanding. Acknowledge Him in everything you do and He will direct your path. Keep your heart with all diligence for out of the heart come the issues of life,” Proverbs 3:5-6.

There is an important play taking place in a football game, where the team needs a touchdown to win. There are only seconds left on the clock in the final quarter.
The ball is thrown to you and the defense is starting to converge on you. Obviously you have the ball and the defense is there to stop you at all costs.
The timing of the throw to you was perfect yet you see the obstacles beginning to surround you very quickly. Do you run to the sideline to stop the clock , or do you go for it?
Some one stumbles in their attempt to tackle you; an opening suddenly appears, and you see it. It’s time to run, it’s time to jump over the obstacles, it’s time to head for the goal line.
Only you have the Word That Was Sent. Only you can deliver the revelation that The LORD gave you, to carry the message to the people that your message is meant for.
You are developing a tremendous resolve to win, to be the instrument The LORD created for the purpose of meeting the lost where they really are. Be fully persuaded therefore that what God has promised, He is able also to perform.
You have the helmet of salvation, the breastplate of righteousness, the sword of the Spirit, the belt of truth, your feet are shod with the preparation of the Gospel of peace, and now you are ready to stand against all the wiles of the adversary.
You can do all things through Christ, because He has strengthened you.
He is faithful Who promised, and He will do it.
