Today Reminder – 6 April 2017

A reminder for today
Since he himself has gone through suffering and testing, he is able to help us when we are being tested. (Hebrews 2:18)

Life is all about ups and downs. Each day we face many different challenges and we walk through the storms of life as the enemy persecutes us. He is relentless in his pursuit of our destruction and he walks through this world like a lion devouring it’s pray and hunting with an insatiable need to destroy. Each day we travel on our life journey with many of these obstacles that the enemy creates. I love the quote “The enemy fights the hardest when he knows God has something great planned for us”. We often find ourselves in a place where we feel that these burdens are just too much.

Jesus came into this world to save us and from the word go the enemy wanted Him to fail. Therefore, Jesus was tested and went through terrible suffering until He finally gave His life. Note that Jesus gave His life out of His own free will. His life was not taken from Him and this is an important point to remember. Now, He went through all this suffering and testing so He knows what we face each day. He knows the difficulties we have and the burdens that we carry. He knows how hard it is and He knows where you are. That is why Jesus knows how to help us when we are being tested and He knows how to equip us when we are challenged. He knows, because He went through it too. 

Today I want you to take all those problems and burdens and challenges and give them to Jesus. Nothing we face is as big as the God that stands behind us. He will give you the wisdom and the courage to face your storms and He will guide you through the mountains that awaits you. Finally, He will give you strength to defeat the enemy and all his plans. I love to remind the enemy of his destination and to remind me of mine. Be strong, my friend, God is stronger.

Lord, we pray that you guide us through this day and help us to face the enemy and overcome all the challenges that awaits us. Lord, take our burdens and our problems and give is wisdom so that we can make the right choices. Help us to open our hearts and minds for you so that we can hear your voice and follow you as you guide us today. Lead us away from temptation and deliver us from evil. Let us carry your armour fearlessly. In Jesus name.

Have an awesome day, dear friend of Jesus.
