Triumphant Victorious Reminders
As Paul greeted in every letter, so I echo, "God's grace and peace be unto you in Jesus name". His supernatural power to empower us to rise above shame and sin along with making our crooked paths straight. That alone amazes me.
As my husband reminded me this morning, just think, GOD is always looking for a way in - never a way out. His love wants to bleed into our relationships with family, friends, coworkers, neighbors, etc. to cause us to fight FOR one another in prayers of His Word and covering.
As we look for a way IN to keep our relationships; some may have co-parts that don't and are looking for a way OUT. It is now my prayer for those to begin to look not for a way out; but press INTO HIM! It takes brave ones to look for a way in.
Jesus is our greatest example.
How do we not quit?
How do we not allow weariness to make us want to give up?
We focus on Jesus Who doesn't know quit - HE has wit to make us laugh with no fear of the future because HE is our future and HE has our future.
HE has you, your future, your children and HE is your faith to faith. HE is your glory to glory. He is your perpetual increase.
Today I am reminded that we are runners of faith that run with and to Jesus Who is our Finish - we are no longer runners that run from hard - we are equipped to do hard WITH HIM so when others watch you and marvel, it is so we can glorify HIM yet again.
The Triumphant Victorious Reminder is simply this: Miracles take place in the midst of hard; never the easy.
