Romans 8:35-37 (NKJV) Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written: “For Your sake we are killed all day long; We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.” Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.
Are you facing a difficult situation at work?
Are you facing a crisis in your business?
Are you being persecuted for your faith in God at work or in school?
Are you facing any hard-pressed situation?
What is God saying about your situation?
Have you sought His face in your quiet time with Him? Book Chapter and verse of His assurance to help you anchor your faith in Him.
Have you taken time to listen to preaching and teachings so that faith comes while listening to His word? Remember, keep planting and watering the seed by listening and reading up on topics that are relevant to the situation that you are facing. Squeeze fear out of your life by replacing it with the word that produces faith and establish peace in your heart and mind. The devil wants you to stumble and fall while looking at the circumstances. Jesus wants you to stay focused on His word especially the promise that He has given you when you spend time with Him in the closet. Remember, faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen. The personal word that’s given to you is the substance of faith.
We live in a broken and fallen world where the devil is the god of this age. He is a manipulator, deceiver, and thief. There is absolutely nothing good in the devil. Jesus has given us a heads up regarding the scheme of the enemy and the hierarchy of the devil’s establishment. We must not allow fear to torment us. We should rather allow faith to build up in our hearts. The same energy spent on thinking about fearful outcomes can be spent on meditating on the perfect love of God. Faith is established when God has spoken to us personally regarding what we are to do. This can be done when we spend quality time in quiet moments with God by worshipping, praying, and reading the word. Jesus has declared God to us and given us the full counsel of the word of God to lead, guide us and to have the ability to differentiate between good and evil. Faith will grow into a firm conviction that refuses to stumble and fall regardless of what the enemy throws into our path in their attempt to pluck the seed of the word out of our hearts!
Sermon Series: Teacher, Do You Not Care that We Are Perishing?
罗马书8:35-37 谁能使我们与基督的爱隔绝呢？难道是患难吗？是困苦吗？是逼迫吗？是饥饿吗？是赤身露体吗？是危险吗？是刀剑吗？ 如经上所记：我们为你的缘故终日被杀；人看我们如将宰的羊。然而，靠着爱我们的主，在这一切的事上已经得胜有余了。
