Romans 5:1-8
"Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with
through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom also we have obtained
introduction by faith into this grace in which we stand; and we
in hope of the glory of God. And not only this, but we also exult in
our tribulations, knowing that tribulation brings about
and perseverance, proven character; and proven character, hope; and
hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured
within our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us. For
while we were still helpless, at the right time Christ died for the
ungodly. For one will hardly die for a righteous man; though perhaps
for the good man someone would dare even to die. But God
His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ
died for us."

-As you go on today just remember that times will get rough, and you
may want to give up, but just hold on a little while longer because
trials come only to make you stronger. I was once told as a young
that there is no way you can fail in God, but the only way you can
fail God is if you quit and give up being in him. Every day as we go
on this journey the enemy is going to try at every hand to make you
quit, for he is already defeated , but he doesn't want you to
it, because he know his time is up and if you know that he is
powerless against you! Always remember that since the devil is
defeated his strategy is to make you think otherwise, just as if a
team knows that they are going to lose to the better team they will
still try to use the strategy that they have planned out to make
themselves look good and to try and throw the other team off. Just
think of yourselves in that situation...You are on the team that is
going to win and already has the victory, and the devil is that
losing team, he knows he has lost but he will try to use that same
game plan that he has used from the beginning of his fall to throw
you off the path and put you on the bench and out of the game, but
just remember that you have the greatest superstar on your
team...Jesus Christ...and the greatest coach...God the father...and
the greatest trainer...the holy spirit helping you in this battle.
Hold on and press on in this christian walk, for trials,
tribulations, and suffering bring patience and perseverance, and
patience and perseverance brings experience and proven character,
that experience and proven character brings hope, and that hope does
not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out within
our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us. So when you
go through just know that suffering will bring peace, hard times
bring rest, and rough days will bring perfect days in our Lord and
Savior Jesus Christ, for our divine instructor the Holy Spirit has
been given to you by the master to get through hardships because he
promised that he will "Never Leave You Nor Forsake You!" Be
Encouraged my brothers and sisters in the faith for the greater the
test the greater the testimony, because the devil tries to destroy
you, discourage you and throw obstacles in your way but as it says
the book of Romans 8:28 "ALL THINGS work for the good of them that love
the Lord and are called according to his purpose", God is with you
through it all and he is bringing you through the storm so that your
testimony will be stronger before his people and that they will see
his glory through you his broken yet sanctified chosen vessel. Walk
in his will and live according to his purpose!

"Hebrews 13:20-21...
Now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord
Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the
everlasting covenant, Make you perfect in every good work to do his
will, working in you that which is wellpleasing in his sight,
Jesus Christ; to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen."

May God's Grace And Peace Be With You All!

-Your Brother In Christ
