It’s easy to try to make God who we want Him to be. Truth is He’s in control of our next breath and the beat of our heart. We must look to Him for love, faith, hope, mercy, grace and comfort. Being a Christian is like being a fish swimming upstream. Gaining the world, is not worth losing your soul.
Lord help strengthen and guide us to look to You in times of despair and sorrow. The wicked ways of the world are of satan. We’re daily in a spiritual battle. Jesus calms the storms and grants His peace that passes all understanding. May our hearts, souls, and minds be daily fixed upon Him.
Mark 12:30 ~ And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.
1 John 4:4 ~ Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world.
Ephesians 6:11-18 ~ Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace
Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God
Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints.
