To Him Be Glory And Dominion
Is there confusion, doubts, anxiety, or worries that are taking control of your life? This is the work of the devil. The devil will do what ever it takes to get your thoughts and you away from our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Being strong in our faith in Christ, Jesus tells us that He will not put anything on us that we will not be able to bear with His help. He tells us that He will never ever forsake us. If we are tempted by evil God will give us a way out of that situation. He will not leave us with no way out. As we get closer to God so will the devil try even harder to pull us away. We must stay strong in our faith of Jesus Christ. He is our only way to God. Some may be in the middle of a situation that is truly dire in there mind. But do not think that is all we have left. We need to look to the heavens and in God's time we will be brought out of any situation that one may be in. There is more to life with Jesus Christ. It is eternal life in Heaven with our one true God. Our time here on earth is just a blink of an eye compared to what is in our future as believers in Jesus Christ. We have hope given to us by the grace of God. Without it what would one have to look forward to? Nothing but death. That is a sad shape to be in. God loves us and wants us to love Him. God is not of confusion, doubts, anxiety, or worries. Jesus Christ is the way out of those things. Let us pray to God today in Jesus' name and ask Him to get rid of those things that are not of Him, to keep us from the evil that is around us every day and to quicken our faith in Him in Jesus name we ask these things. Amen
1: The elders which are among you I exhort, who am also an elder, and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, and also a partaker of the glory that shall be revealed:
2: Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind;
3: Neither as being lords over God's heritage, but being ensamples to the flock.
4: And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away.
5: Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble.
6: Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:
7: Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.
8: Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:
9: Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.
10: But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you.
11: To him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.
