Withstand And Stand
“Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm.” Ephesians 6:13 (ESV)
Life has a way of doing its best to try to knock us down. There are times when it feels like everything is coming against us at the same time. Storms, trials, tribulations, trouble, heartache, heartbreak, and disappointments all seem to show up at the same time.
Rejected But Blessed
“The stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone.” Psalm 118:22 (ESV)
It does not make a difference how strong a person may be, rejection is not easy for anyone to take. The feeling of rejection can leave someone to a place of never trying anything again. Rejection from a job, a school, a loan, or anything is hard to take, but we should never allow rejection to be the final say over our lives.
“I was glad when they said to me, “Let us go to the house of the Lord!” Psalm 122:1 (ESV)
As this New Year has begun we find ourselves at the first Sunday of 2019. This is a great opportunity for us to start our year off right by being in the House of The Lord.
Called And Appointed
“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I appointed you a prophet to the nations.” Jeremiah 1:5 (ESV)
No matter how old we are we are still learning things about ourselves. For some of us we are learning how strong we really are, because of some things that we have had to overcome.
