Hard Times May Come, But He’s There With Us Through Them All
Though we aren’t promised an easy life, we are told that Christ will be there with us when we believe in Him, that he won’t give us more than we can handle with His help, and even our hard times can be used to glorify God.
Humble And Bold
Philippians 4: 10-13
But I rejoiced in the Lord greatly, that now at the last your care of me hath flourished again; wherein ye were also careful, but ye lacked opportunity. Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, [therewith] to be content. I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.
Our keys verses are Philippians 4:12-13 to focus our hearts and minds on how Christ will deliver us during our time of trouble. We learn through the experience of the Apostle Paul, a prisoner in Rome, to rejoice in the Lord, meaning to be in the company of the Almighty is more significant than his suffering. Specifically, in verses 12 and 13, he exhorts temperance with Spiritual boldness, full of the Spirit and hungry for the Word of Christ (John 1:1). While experiencing the Grace of God while suffering in the flesh, we can do all things with Christ who strengthens us.
Jehovah El Gemuwal, The LORD God of recompense - Jeremiah 51:56; we thank You for the balance of Love (Christ) during our times of affliction. We come with a spirit of oneness being abased (humble) and bold with Your Spirit. We decree and declare the blessing (the indwelling of the Holy Spirit) upon those who structure a balance in our lives, so that; we seek to be full of Your Grace and hungry for Your Word. Now, for the Kingdom and Glory of God, we petition, with anointing, in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, Amen.
