It’s a sweet assurance that you are not alone in your battle. It’s encouraging being surrounded by people with strong faith. Truly, having a place called home is such a blessing.
As we strive towards holiness and righteousness before the Lord our God, God Himself is dealing with our character, individually and congregationally. We encounter a lot of dealings along the way. It’s true that in this end-time generation, even righteous before the Lord our God will struggle to survive this challenge of holiness. It’s difficult to be holy, yes, but it’s possible. You got to have that fighting spirit within. Let’s not limit God.
As God deals with our hearts, may He find us purely adoring Him. Let’s not keep any residue of worldliness and worldly passion, because such rot our soul, and eventually shake us, sending our spirit into confusion. Let’s claim we did not ended up like this. We’d came this far to fail.
Let neither the fears nor the cares of this world ever sway us in running the race set before us. We’re fighting the battle that was won on the cross two thousand years ago. We are just claiming our victory – claim it! In Jesus’ name!
