Okay, life is tough. There are struggles and hardships for sure. Do we really need a revelation from God to point that out to us? Doesn’t the nature of life itself lead us down various paths of difficulties? Of course it does. My concern this week is toward you, the Christian.

In this life’s journey, our Lord Jesus is the believer’s rest. There is a tendency when things are going wrong to focus on the storm, like Peter did after Jesus bid him to come. However, it’s during the storms that we need, more than ever, to magnify the Lord and praise His Name.

In Christ we are overcomers. God is for us, and nothing can separate us from Christ’s love. In fact, in all stages and phases of life, we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. Praise His Name forever! The Christian life is a life of victory through our risen Savior. We are victorious over death, and victorious over the world. We must remember that our victory is in Him, by Him, and through Him. As we keep our lives fixed in God’s Word, giving us a firm grip on the Sword of the Spirit and using it to fight our battles, God will grant us great victories.

May the Spirit of Christ quicken you today in a fresh way. Remember, greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world, and Jesus Himself has assured us: These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.
