Morning Prayer, Friday, October 15, 2021 - WORD(S) OF THE DAY: I GOT YOU
Father God, when things get a little too tough for me or life just seems to squeeae me a bit too hard, my prayer is please help me to stand strong until the pressure eases up. Amen
"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
“There's no storm God won't carry you through; no bridge God won't carry you over and no no battle God won't help you win." Sometimes it is hard to stick with what we started. Maybe you got frustrated because things were not going the way you had planned or maybe you are discouraged because circumstances are hindering your progress. Either way, you were not able to stick with what you started. I think about what if Jesus had not had stickability. You know what, they beat him, spit on him, lied on him and was just totally against him. These were the same people he was tasked with dying on the cross for. When road blocks and stuff get in your way do you give up? When things do not work out as you planned in your head and heart do you throw in the towel? We do sometimes, you know. You started a business and for the first six months sales were slow, so you kind of figured maybe it wasn't God's plan for you. God never promised us that this life would be easy. What does Jesus tell us in John 16:33, "In this world, you will have trouble . . ." He let us know right there that this life would not be easy but he also said, "But take heart, I have overcome the world.." What does that mean? Well, to me it means "I got you." He does you know have us so no matter how hard things get, just know you are not in this thing alone.
