Today Reminder – 31 July 2014 (Day 23 – War)



A reminder for today
I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me (John 14:6)

Today I just want to remind you that you must not accept the lies of the enemy but you should embrace the truth that is in Jesus Christ. Paul said that we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places (Ephesians 6:12). Our battle is not one that is seen but one that happens inside us. We face the waves of a stormy sea and the eruptions of a blood thirsty volcano and sometimes we are the only ones that see our battle. We stand in the midst of this storm as it rages around us and everyone else just carries on with their daily lives. It is here in our battle where the Lord stands so firm with us. It is here when we tremble at the sight of our battles that we rise with hope and we defeat with faith. It is when we stumble and fall and stand up again with determination, and our hearts firmly grounded on the foundation of Jesus, that we carry on no matter the load. It is the knowledge of the Cross and the life that awaits us that motivates us. It is the way we understand the difference between temporary and eternity. And finally it is the way we are loved first that we can love unconditionally without remorse. It is in our walk and in our talk. It is who we are and, it is why we are.

Have an awesome day dear friend of Jesus

Cheers
