My fellow believers, when it seems as though you are facing nothing but difficulties, see it as an invaluable opportunity to experience the greatest joy that you can!
For you know that when your faith is tested it stirs up power within you to endure all things. And then as your endurance grows even stronger it will release perfection into every part of your being until there is nothing missing and nothing lacking. (Jam 1:2-4)
We’ve all been there – screaming up to the Heavens - WHEN WILL ALL THIS LA LA END?!?
The thing is, it’s not the problem that so actually hurts us, it’s the cognitive knowledge that we will (once again, and so easily) quit in the process.
There’s a great song playing on Christian radio right now by Michael W Smith that shows how GOD is BIGGER than whatever is set against us:
… It may look like I’m surrounded,
But I’m surrounded by You
It may look like I’m surrounded
But I’m surrounded by You…!
What he's encouraging us to see is that even though the enemy looks to have us surrounded, if we would just look up (from the sand that we've so often buried our heads into), we'd see that GOD has in fact surrounded the enemy!!!
URGENT PRAYER REQUESTS
NB - The prayer requests were coming in thick and fast and getting too long to just be tagged onto the daily encouragement. As such I've created a separate page for you to view on the below link which will be updated constantly ...
The Lord Bless you for caring
