Do you feel weak and discouraged today?
Are you about to throw your hands up in defeat today?
Do you trust no one anymore?
I bring you my Hope in a Risen Savior and Lord!
To start today, I would like to share this song.
It is my intent to use it to perhaps lift your spirit.
We need to sincerely lift one another’s hands up in prayer.
Prayer does changes things.
Let’s get back to prayer!
Getting back: It sure is an uncommon confusing world we live in now.
Still my hope and trust is alive and well in Jesus Christ!
I can only take you as far as where I am at myself.
Still I am an imperfect human as anyone else.
If we are constantly looking at a person you will see their human frailties after awhile.
Just study all the biblical giants of the faith.
That is because, none of us have arrived yet!
Surely one day we will arrive to the other side!
We are to strive for the mark.
Some today are saying, “I don’t trust anyone anymore!”
Still the devil can cause us to get cynical if we are not really careful.
Our confidence should never be in the flesh anyway!
Still it does not mean we can never trust again.
We trust God, and look above for all our answers.
Then The LORD will put certain ones in our lives to encourage and help us.
Here is a link that seems to fit here more on this main subject:
Now I’m closing today with this wonderful Third chapter in Philippians with 21 verses.
“Finally, my brethren, rejoice in The LORD. To write the same things to you, to me indeed is not grievous, but for you it is safe.
Beware of dogs, beware of evil workers, beware of the concision.
For we are the circumcision, which worship God in the spirit, and rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh.
Though I might also have confidence in the flesh. If any other man thinketh that he hath whereof he might trust in the flesh, I more: circumcised the eighth day, of the stock of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, an Hebrew of the Hebrews; as touching the law, a Pharisee; concerning zeal, persecuting the church; touching the righteousness which is in the law, blameless.
But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ.
Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ, and be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith: that I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death; if by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead.
Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect: but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus.
Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
Let us therefore, as many as be perfect, be thus minded: and if in any thing ye be otherwise minded, God shall reveal even this unto you.
Nevertheless, whereto we have already attained, let us walk by the same rule, let us mind the same thing.
Brethren, be followers together of me, and mark them which walk so as ye have us for an ensample.
(For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ: whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.)
For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, The LORD Jesus Christ: Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself.” Philippians 3:1-21
God bless you all.
