Today Reminder - 17 July 2012 (Kindness)

My prayer for you for today is that God will restore, support and strengthen you as He places you on a firm foundation in Jesus name.

1 Peter 5:10-11
In His kindness God called you to share in His eternal glory by means of Christ Jesus. So after you have suffered a little while, He will restore, support, and strengthen you, and He will place you on a firm foundation. All power to Him forever! Amen.

Kindness - God called you to share in His eternal glory. I have often wondered about the time we have here on earth and I so often find myself being negative about life and all the bad that happens around us. Just as I get to a point where I feel strong and free from the worldly burdens, the enemy will launch a new attack. It is almost as if you cannot get to place or a stage where you can just chill for a while and bask in God’s grace. Every time we reach a new goal, there is mountain to climb. Life seems unfair in this as we struggle from one day to the next and to make it worse we are constantly reminded by the media how “cool” it is to live a Godless life when we see or hear what the rich and famous are up to. 

My dear friends, is it not so that when you are not on a diet you can walk past the sweets aisle and not give it one thought, but the minute you are on a diet you can almost taste those sweets and chocolates and the temptation suddenly appears to be unbearable. It is in this that the enemy has become relentless. He seeks out your weaknesses and he will focus all his attacks on them. What we must not forget and I plead once more with you to remember every minute of each day that life is a breath compared to eternity and that our time here is only a little while. When temptation is hampering your relationship with God, call out to Him and ask for strength and support to restore you. When the mountain lies ahead of you, remember that with faith we can move mountains, whoever and whatever they are. Keep your heading focussed on Jesus and rise with me today as we continue our struggle for a little while, keeping our heads up and our hearts filled with His love and strength. 

I will not fall nor will I lose the fight as I journey on through today, to live, to love and to overcome in God's kindness.

Have an awesome day dear friend of Jesus
