WARRIORS ARE IN GOD's ARMY
YOU ARE NOT ALONE
You may feel that your trials are overwhelming, but when you read about the trials that others face, you are humbled by their magnitude. Scripture tells us that Moses and the Israelites were fleeing the Egyptian army.. they were blocked by the Red Sea. With little hope of survival, they thought they would have to fight a battle they would surely lose. But they did not know God was with them. God parted the Red Sea and the Israelites escaped. There are many stories where followers thought they were alone in their situation. What if you were placed in a fiery furnace, or in a lion’s den, or sent to fight a giant... these biblical figures were never alone. God worked miracles through Jesus and they lived through the experience. That is how God works when you trust Him and when you follow Him.
You will encounter storms, you will be placed in uncomfortable circumstances and wonder how the heck will I survive this. How can I make it when I only have me to depend on. There will be times when you have no one to turn to. You are never alone, God knew your problem before it crossed your path. He enjoys having His child come to Him for help. We honor Him by asking for help, we display the level of our FAITH when we turn our troubles over to Him.. then let go.
CRACKED AND BROKEN
Are you feeling broken, filled with emptiness? Feeling as though you have given as much as you can and need a re-charge. God loves working with broken pieces, all you need do is submit your broken spirit to Him.
Feeling broken can be caused by many things. Professional, personal, world events, or health and loss. You may visit a Doctor, but he cannot mend a broken spirit. Doctors are trained to PRACTICE medicine. God was never trained, and He never has to practice, because “GOD IS.” He is the answer to your un-asked questions, the cure for what ails you, your bright and morning star, a guide when you wander in the valley shadowed by death. He can do anything and everything.
There will be days when you feel inadequate to handle the challenges of the day, that is normal. The wealthiest people and the poorest people have those days. Leaders and servants have those days, no one is exempt. What makes us different is, some are believers and will seek Jesus Christ our Lord, others will arrogantly think they can manipulate the events of life to make themselves whole.
As creator of heaven and earth, God is the Master Craftsman. God scooped clay from the earth, held it in His hands and molded nothingness into a living being. He can take your broken pieces, rearrange them and make you whole again.
How sweet the name of Jesus sounds to the believer’s ear, it makes the wounded spirit whole., it calms the troubled heart, feeds the hungry soul and gives the weary rest.
