A Nutshell

A Nutshell

          Let me give you the Bible in a nutshell – IF you are IN Christ, everything will be okay.
          The Body of Christ has awaken this morning (perhaps some did not sleep much) to challenges, adversities, fears and troubles.  As long as we live here, we are going to have troubles BUT.
          John 16:(Amplified Bible)  
33 I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have [perfect] peace and confidence. In the world you have tribulation and trials and distress and frustration; but be of good cheer [take courage; be confident, certain, undaunted]! For I have overcome the world. [I have deprived it of power to harm you and have conquered it for you.]
          Believe this and live; don’t believe it and struggle this life to death.  The choice is ours.  Troubles so deep, wide and heavy that we can’t get our minds around this Scripture?  Then don’t be too proud to ask for help! Pray and seek godly counsel! Jesus did not lie when He spoke these words. We either believe Him or we don’t.

            Holy Spirit, minister this Word this morning. You know it is not my heart to be harsh or naïve.  I just know there comes a time that for us to do this life right and well we have to get serious with You.  We have to believe what You say; we have to take Your Word seriously and do it so we can live. The alternative is a defeated life. I don’t want that for me or any of us.   I know life here is hard.  You know that. But I also know You are good and life here is meant to be good even when it is hard and You are the ONLY way that is going to happen.  It ain’t good here without You.  So I am asking You to encourage the discouraged, strengthen the weak, and send help with ‘skin on their face’ to those who really got to see help beside them.
. . .       And encouragement, right decisions, repentance, restoration, forgiveness, surrender, a will to believe, hope, trust – all this and more I am praying for families and people in need this morning.  Folks are in need here, horrible illnesses – just living through the ‘remedy’ is consuming, it takes over time, resources, it just swallows up living – don’t let it, LORD, give them a better way.  . . .   If we did not KNOW that You are good and that this is not all there is we would all despair.  But You are good and in You life is abundant and joy is ours in You.  Thank You, ABBA.  Thank You.  We pray for peace and comfort and safety for our IDOK Troops and their families.  We pray for the peace and prosperity and salvation of Israel. We pray for repentance and revival in America and around the world.  We ask this and more in Jesus Name.  Amen and amen.
