Today Reminder – 11 May 2017

A reminder for today
So don't be misled, my dear brothers and sisters. Whatever is good and perfect comes down to us from God our Father, who created all the lights in the heavens. He never changes or casts a shifting shadow. (James 1:16-17)

There are many pitfalls in today’s world and as a Christian we face many challenges. We live in a world where the obvious is questioned and people want to be gods. This is an age-old sin that destroys good people. People will do anything to mislead us and pull us down. Those that are lost will find anything that they can use to discredit our faith and make a mockery of our God. God never changes, it is man that tries and change God. If we are not happy with what God wants we turn against Him. So many have fallen for the enemy’s lies and turned away from God, because of their worldly desires. Everything comes from God. God created the heavens and the earth and He created you and me in His image. That is why everything in you points to an intelligent designer. Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it. (Psalm 139.14) 

Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see (Hebrews 11:1). Faith is what separates us from the unbelievers. Faith is what we have in what the lost cannot see. I know that God exists, I see it in my life and in the world that He created. I have no doubt and I believe in Jesus more and more each day. The very story of Jesus resurrection started mere days after His death and that is impossible to be a legend. Legends take years to formulate. The disciples and hundreds of other people were eye witnesses to the resurrection of Jesus. These were fear filled men that suddenly turned into fearless men that died without denying the resurrection of Jesus. What makes a man believe so badly if he did not see it with his own eyes? The fact that historical documents tells of the death of Jesus and that His enemies did not look for His body, they made up stories points clearly to His resurrection. 

Do not be misled by people who seek only their own glory. Do not allow the enemy for hamper your faith. Stand firm in our faith and trust God. He has a plan with all and with your faith you can change the hearts of those that seek your destruction. Jesus gave His life for me, so I gladly give my life for Him and for you, my friend. 

Lord, do not led the enemy bring doubt into our lives. Fill us once more with your Holy Spirit and give us the wisdom and strength we need to face the enemy. In Jesus name.

Have an awesome day, dear friend of Jesus.
