The Christian life is not a perfect life …we will be the first to admit that we need a Savior (rescuer, deliverer, champion, knight in shining armor, friend in need).
No, we don’t have it all together … we live in an imperfect world with imperfect people in imperfect relationships…God keeps us safe from the hands of the wicked.
We have our moments of deep discouragement and failures …we recognize it, but we do not lose heart. God has to approve anything Satan wants to do. Read Job 1:10
We have relationships that don’t always work in our favor …. we depend on God for wisdom. We watch death take away our loved one — but His grace is sufficient and His power is made perfect in our weaknesses . We have miscarriages of both injustice and dreams, but God’s plans are bigger than our wildest miscarriages.
We go to God in prayer with tears in our eyes, and God dries away our tears and brings comfort to our aching hearts.
As CHRISTians, we take everything that concerns us to God in prayer…bad things happen to everyone. When it seems like a situation is hopeless or the matter at hand is too overwhelming, we may be tempted to doubt God. But we are reminded that no problem is beyond God’s sovereign care for His children. He has promised to take care of us (Philippians 4:19), make good plans for us (Jeremiah 29:11), and love us beyond measure (Romans 8:37–39).
When Satan reminds of our past, God reminds us of our future. We set our eyes on the prize of the High Calling of God.
People hurt us, God heals us. We stumble — but He orders His angels to guard us wherever we go. When we call on God … He answers and He remains at our side until the storm passes over.
We fight! We overcome! We believe!
