As I reflect on life, I realize that no matter where I am, I am better than I was! Life throws many challenging blows at us but we must be willing to be a good soldier. (Not just when things are going well but even in the rough times). We sing the song I’m a Soldier in the Army of the Lord”, so we have to be that soldier at all times. If the Soldiers in the Natural Army were to tuck and run at times of war and hardships, where would we be? (Thank You Soldiers for your service).
We must gird our loins and go into warfare. If and When we get to a place where we can not go forward, then we must stand still and mark time until the way is made for us to go forward. In the Word of God, there was no protection given for our backs so don’t turn around or go backwards. Ephesians 6:13-18.
Whoever told us that LIFE would be a bed of roses (saved or unsaved) was so mistaken. LIFE is just what is says LIFE! Now how we deal with or handle it makes all the difference. Will you cry? Yes and how many tears will never be known. Will LIFE always go the way you want? Will people always be for you or in your corner? Will we be hurt by those who we love or love us? These are some serious questions and the answers are and will be surprising to some. That is why the Word of God tells us to “Lean not on our own Understanding” (Proverbs 3:5)
Think back and then begin to “Thank God” for where He brought you from and where He’s taking you! Don’t get weary in well doing and Don’t Faint! (Galatians 6:9). Be Encouraged!
