Keep your eye on the prize. Run the race set before you, when you stumble, pick yourself back up, shake it off and continue on. We are each one individually called for a different purpose… satan and his minions are working overtime in these days, many, if not most, Christians are finding themselves under some pressure, and worse, under extreme persecution to the point of death. Why must we suffer?? Well, is He not worth it? The One who endured such extreme persecution and horrific death, The One who gave Himself as the ransom for others, The One who conquered death, rose again and sits at the Right Hand of God? OH YES, He is very much worth anything we endure. Times will come for each and every believer when they will find themselves in the fire and there will be many who question and even turn their backs on our One True Lord… we must prepare ourselves spiritually, to be able to endure and stand physically. What has the Lord Christ Jesus, our Holy God, called you to? For me personally, I keep praying that no matter what the circumstances of my life are, that I cling tightly to the One who is my Salvation, nothing else matters, nothing. I wrote this for me, a reminder which I need on a daily basis, but sharing in case there is any other who need it. May our Lord God’s Will be done in earth, as it is in heaven and may all glory, praise and honor be His forevermore, AMEN.
And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.
1 Corinthians 2:9
But, as it is written, “What no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man imagined, what God has prepared for those who love him”. . . .
For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith for faith, as it is written, “The righteous shall live by faith.”
In my Father’s house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also.
For it has been granted to you that for the sake of Christ you should not only believe in him but also suffer for his sake. . . .
1 Peter 2:9
But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.
For it is God who works in you, both to will and to work for his good pleasure.
