I wanted to share the words of my devotional this morning from “My Utmost for His Highest” by Oswald Chambers. We sometime have life forces pounding on us that seem more than we can stand. We are moaning “enough”. But Oswald reminds us…
Perseverance means more than endurance, more than simply holding on until the end. Oswald Chambers
Revelations is a book of hope reminding us that we can survive this life if we just hold o and trust Him.
“A person’s life is in the hands of God like a bow and arrow in the hands of an archer. God is aiming at something we can not see, but our Lord continues stretching until His purpose is in sight, then he lets the arrow fly.” Oswald Chambers
Even though we feel we can take no more, if we continue to maintain an intimate relationship with Christ our faith in Him will help us persevere.
“Faith is not some weak and pitiful emotion. It is a strong and vigorous confidence built on God’s love for us.” Oswald Chambers
“The real meaning of eternal life is a life that can face anything it has to face without wavering.” Oswald Chambers
So as you face the trials of this life, raise and uplifted hand above and I promise He has a hand reaching down to you to help you survive. He never puts more on us than we can tolerate.
And in closing I remind us all of the power of kindness. Kindness has a power of strength that can not be measured and it can sometimes be the one thing that helps us survive, whether we give it or receive it.
Reach out to be kind.
