When you consider your walk with Christ, do you only consider the surface matters and/or sell out for moments of worldly “pleasures”? As Christians, we should see to it that our walk with Christ shares the gospel without us saying a word (but rather through how we conduct ourselves). In this, our biggest weapons are prayer and relationships with others in the church.
Twenty years ago, a single moment changed the world and brought fear to many. We need to remember that fear comes when we take our eyes from God. The answer to fear, therefore, is to never forget how powerful God is; a power that is continually shown in the signs and wonders revealed to us in the Bible (and in our daily lives) if we only have the eyes to see it.
Do you feel like your sufferings are neverending and wonder why God is punishing you? The Book of Job teaches that Satan needs permission to challenge us. God allows this because challenges purify our lives and refine our faith and faithfulness is about more than how many “blessings” we have.
