“And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose” (Rom 8:28)
One of the major weapons of the devil is discouragement. This is one of his favorite fiery darts. To be discouraged it means losing courage and confidence until you are unable to do something you need to do. Discouragement is an attack on the emotions and the will. It weakens them. You cannot find joy and excitement in the things you need to do. Courage is the mental strength to stand and persevere in times of fear, danger or difficulties. Courage ends in success. Discouragement ends in failure and defeat. There is no middle road. No Christian should be discouraged! Reject depression! The Holy Spirit is life, truth, power, peace and joy! Be filled with the Holy Spirit!
The scripture above should be memorized by all believers and applied daily. It is the trumpet call of faith and strength for all the children of God. It says that God is totally in charge of your life! You are not in charge! The devil is not in charge! The confusing circumstances are not in charge! God is in charge! It says that ‘all things work together for good’ not some things, not only the good things. But all things! God will arrange the scattered pieces of the puzzle until they ‘make sense’. Each piece is important. Some moments in life are painful, some a boring and some are happy. Do not look too much at each piece separately because you shall be distracted! Look at the big picture! Look at what God wants to do in your life! Let God arrange the pieces together and then you shall see what God sees, the beautiful love story of Jesus reflected in your humble life. God alone knows the end from the beginning. God loves you and you love God! That is all that matters! Success must follow!
Dear Believer, God has called you to His presence to be His son and servant. This calling started from the foundation of the world. It did not start today! This calling is supernatural, active and powerful. It will work wonders in your life. May God’s perfect will be done in your life, in Jesus name, amen!
