Shepherd vs. Cowboy

Ps.26:3 “Your constant love is my guide and your faithfulness always leads me.” (TEV, emphasis added)

Who is your shepherd? I hope that by now you can say Only Jesus! A lot of us know people or are people that travel. When we travel to new places, sometimes we go around the city just to appreciate the sights. Read the rest of this entry

Can He?

Ps. 121:1-2I look up to the mountains—does my help come from there? My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth!”

The Charge

Acts 15:32-33 “Then Judas and Silas, both being prophets, spoke at length to the believers, encouraging and strengthening their faith. They stayed for a while, and then the believers sent them back to the church in Jerusalem with a blessing of peace.”

Purpose & Produce

2 Cor.4:17 “For our present troubles are small and won’t last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever!”

 

The next fact you need to know about suffering is, In The End, We Win. No matter how tough the battle is, in the end, we win. Check the scriptures; that is what the Bible tells us from Genesis to Revelations. Read the rest of this entry

Be Still

1 Pet.5:10 (BSB) “And after you have suffered for a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to His eternal glory in Christ, will Himself restore you, secure you, strengthen you, and establish you.” (emphasis added)

Pain is not palatable for anyone, not even Jesus. But God’s Words says, if something strange is happening to you, do not think it is something strange. I am not saying that pain is palatable. Read the rest of this entry

Nothing Strange

1 Peter 4:12 “Dear friends, don’t be surprised at the fiery trials you are going through, as if something strange were happening to you.”‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬

The way people deal with challenges sometimes is very interesting. People go through challenges as if something strange is happening to them. God says it is not strange. Read the rest of this entry
