Thanksgiving: I Thank the Lord for the freedom to Love! I Thank the Lord that choice is given to all Men! I Thank the Lord that through our suffering, He is still great!
It is written, “It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery. Mark my words! I, Paul, tell you that if you let yourselves be circumcised, Christ will be of no value to you at all. Again I declare to every man who lets himself be circumcised that he is obligated to obey the whole law. You who are trying to be justified by the law have been alienated from Christ; you have fallen away from grace. For through the Spirit we eagerly await by faith the righteousness for which we hope. For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision has any value. The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love. You were running a good race. Who cut in on you to keep you from obeying the truth? That kind of persuasion does not come from the one who calls you. “A little yeast works through the whole batch of dough.” I am confident in the Lord that you will take no other view. The one who is throwing you into confusion, whoever that may be, will have to pay the penalty.” Galatians 5:1-10
Prayer: I pray Father that all who have been mislead by the lord of confusion be brought back into your light!
It is Written,“This is why we never give up. Though our bodies are dying, our spirits are being renewed every day. For our present troubles are quite small and won’t last very long. Yet they produce for us an immeasurably great glory that will last forever! So we don’t look at the troubles we can see right now; rather, we look forward to what we have not yet seen. For the troubles we see will soon be over, but the joys to come will last forever.” (2 Corinthians 4:16-18)
“This is why we never give up. Though our bodies are dying, our spirits are being renewed every day.” If I learned one thing about living in Christ, it is the knowledge of the flesh and Spirit. Though your Spirit will spend eternity somewhere, your flesh is destine to return to dust. So we find this truth about the Flesh, “For our present troubles are quite small and won’t last very long. Yet they produce for us an immeasurably great glory that will last forever!” We can not let our present troubles supersede the destiny we have in the Lord! “So we don’t look at the troubles we can see right now; rather, we look forward to what we have not yet seen.” Believe in the Glory of Heaven. God has set for us a beautiful place where we shall spend the rest of eternity with him.
“For the troubles we see will soon be over, but the joys to come will last forever.” This is the truth of the Lord that we hold on to. When we call upon the Lord, we as for the Spirit of Joy in every situation. God’s Word assures us that our troubles will not last always and that Joy will soon come. It is by the renewing of the spirit daily that produces this ever lasting hope within us. Don’t look at your situation today and say it is Lord of your life, but lean unto the promise that God has set before you. God is always here to remind us that his Grace is sufficient through every situation.
