In the name of Jesus, please continue to bring healing to our hearts and minds so we can stay tuned in to your plans and purposes.
Always remember, my brothers and sisters, that God is far greater than any of our problems. For those who are in the heat of spiritual warfare, hold on! Keep your confidence! In Christ, the battle is already won. My brothers and sisters, troubled times are the times when we cling tighter and become stronger in the Lord. Do not to fall apart, give up, cave in nor quit.
There are some of us crying out for justice and relief. Try to remember David’s dilemma, and if this is not what you are facing now, then we must pray for those caught in the devils snare. David, in Psalm 31 cried: “O LORD, I have come to you for protection; don’t let me be disgraced. Save me, for you do what is right. Turn your ear to listen to me; rescue me quickly. Be my rock of protection, a fortress where I will be safe. Psalm 31 and do not dwell on what’s happening around you. God not only extends His grace, but God also extends justice to those who try to harm us.
Hebrews 2:1-4 says: So we must listen very carefully to the truth we have heard, or we may drift away from it. For the message God delivered through angels has always stood firm, and every violation of the law and every act of disobedience was punished. So what makes us think we can escape if we ignore this great salvation that was first announced by the Lord Jesus himself and then delivered to us by those who heard him speak? And God confirmed the message by giving signs and wonders and various miracles and gifts of the Holy Spirit whenever he chose.
Brothers and sisters, these scriptures were warning to the Hebrew people of the dangers of drifting away from the Word of God…from God. Drifting is very dangerous in that often times we don’t even notice that we are actually drifting away. Some of us are in the fast lane moving faster every day and yes I’m sure that some days we all could use a few more hours to accomplish our affairs.
However, drifting starts out very subtle… one stops studying the Bible, praying or going to church…actually it can start in various ways. People start to drift when there are rumors going on about someone in the church or someone who offended him or her. The subtle drifting takes one into extreme trouble waters……When we are way out in in the deep waters it takes great effort to swim back. We need help getting back to shore.
Stop for a minute, then ask yourself, “Am I drifting?” If the answer is yes…then start swimming back now…Come back! Some of you may be asking how? How do I come back? Well, Peter, when he saw the strong wind and the waves, he was terrified and began to sink. “Save me, Lord!” he shouted. Shout unto the Lord and ask Him to save you from drifting farther away from Him. Say what David said in Psalm 69:1(NLT) …He said, “Save me, O God, for the floodwaters are up to my neck.”
