A friend of mine told me, “The devil is out to get us all, I’m just about tired of fighting.”Have you ever felt that emotion? I certainly have!
It does seem that there are times we need, let me re-phrase that to times I need help. I am trying to be positive and know that everything is going to be alright but then I get a sick feeling in the pit of my stomach that makes me stop… that’s when I have to get out my Bible and encourage myself knowing that ultimately everything WILL be alright.
Isaiah 41:10, Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.
Hebrews 10:25 So let’s do it—full of belief, confident that we’re presentable inside and out. Let’s keep a firm grip on the promises that keep us going. He always keeps his word. Let’s see how inventive we can be in encouraging love and helping out, not avoiding worshiping together as some do but spurring each other on, especially as we see the big Day approaching.
Psalm 133:1 Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!
It is said that Christians are the only people who kill their wounded. Oh my God, I wish that wasn’t true, but I have seen it with my own eyes. Someone makes a mistake and the pack attacks! When Satan attacks one of our own and they are being pulled apart by the lions of this life we need to rush the devil head on and spear him with the sword of the Word. We must take the wounded and hide them in the safety of the herd and help them until their wounds heal.
Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
