Today Reminder - 07 October 2013 (Day 5 - Living in the Kingdom)

A reminder for today
So King Shishak of Egypt came up and attacked Jerusalem. He ransacked the treasuries of the LORD's Temple and the royal palace; he stole everything, including all the gold shields Solomon had made. (2 Chronicles 12:9)

How are you my dear friend and how was your weekend? After such an awesome week I had a challenging weekend. Saturday morning I picked up two major injuries in our morning training and they seemed to escalate to an unbearable state yesterday. This bombarded me with questions on the typical stuff, like why and how and should I continue. I ended up in a place yesterday where I thought that I am confused and this constant pain made everyday things difficult. 

My dear friend, I realised once again that we live in world where God’s kingdom is under constant attack and that our enemy hates it when we prosper in God’s name and especially when we give Him all the glory. You see the enemy wants you to fail in God’s army so that you can question God and give up on Him.

We are always under surveillance from the enemy and they are always looking for good time to bring us down and to turn our focus away from God. This made me realise that with or without injuries I will continue my struggle and do all that I can for the glory of our Lord and the continuous fight to expand God’s kingdom.

Come with me today and let us pick up our armour and take on this day, because the God that is within us is an all powerful God and nothing can bring us down. Our strength and our determination come from an unlimited source and God will never let us fail as long as we hold on to Him and follow His direction and guidance. Our King is and was and will always be. There is no other like Him.

Have and awesome day dear friend of Jesus
