Thank You, Holy Spirit.
Jesus didn’t leave The Father when things got very tough and calamities befell Him while here on earth. Instead, He got closer to GOD. And we ought to be Christ-like, right? Hmmm… our righteousness is indeed filthy…if the only time we act right is when things work in our favor.
Shedrach, Meshach, and Abednego were humans like us. They told the King then that they were not going to bow down to his god even if GOD forsakes them and this great act of faith brought GOD down into their midst in the fire and they weren’t hurt in any way.
Why are we; the Chosen Generation, Royal Priesthoods, Holy Nation, Peculiar People now bowing to the hurts, pains, hardships, and calamities that befall us, thus forsaking GOD for the world? Why do we break so easily when our faiths are being put to the test? “Job”, a being like you and I, held on to GOD despite the mighty calamity that befell him.
Remember; you can do all things through Christ who strengthens you (Phil 4:16). You can overcome the hardships and pains and hurts and calamities through Christ who strengthens you.
So when the going gets tough, stick to GOD; when it gets tougher, get much closer to GOD. NEVER leave/be far from The Source so you don’t get lost.
1 Corinthians 10:13
“There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able: but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.”
Not in Christ yet? Or was in Him before but no more? You can join the winning team now by asking GOD sincerely to forgive you, confessing your sins to Him and confessing Him as the only Lord and Saviour. Ask Jesus to come into your life to be the Lord of you, promising to forsake all your sinful ways.
