THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS
Fear looks back,
Worry looks around,
guilt looks down,
But faith lifts up!
11 Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in
whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.
12 I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound:
every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full
and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need.
13 I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.
Light from the Word.
With all that is going on in the world today, one must wonder:
Where is righteousness?
Fornication, adultery, envy, murder, covetousness, backbiters,
proud, boasting, inventors of evil things, covenant breakers,
without natural affection and the unmerciful fill the pages of
the news. (See Romans 1:29-31)
We do well to remember:
1) It's not as bad as it could be,
2) It's not as bad as we deserve,
3)And, it's not as bad as some others suffer.
Let us learn to be "content" with our joy in Christ.
Let us learn to "abound" in the difficulty.
With faith in Christ, we can endure all that the devil tosses at us!
Even the darkest clouds soon break open to show the light!
Remember also, we are MORE than conquerors through
Him that loved us! (Romans 8:37)
