***We Can Do It***



 
God Is With Us
People in the world today are hungry for hope and courage more than food. Their souls long for something that will give them strength. Isaiah prophesied that the baby born to a virgin would be called Immanuel which means God with us (Isaiah 7:14). That baby was Jesus. Jesus said to His followers, "I am with you always" (Matthew 28:20). God said He will never leave us or forsake us (Hebrews 13:5). 


No Fear in Christ
For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind (I Timothy 1:7). When we follow Christ, we can be confident that we will live forever with Him. He promised to prepare a place for us (John 14:3). We do not fear death " we have received eternal life through Him. Paul reminds us that nothing can separate us from the Love of Christ " not trouble, not hard times, not hatred, not hunger, not homelessness, not bullying threats, not backstabbing, nothing in the present and nothing that is coming in the future (Romans 8:35-38).


God Works All Things Together For Our Good
We know that all things work together for good for those who love God, for those who are called according to His purpose (Romans 8:28). God is working in our life no matter what we see or what we may feel. God's purposes are being fulfilled " we can be sure of this. We can trust in His goodness. No good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly (Psalm 84:11). God is good and He can be trusted.


We Can Do Anything Through Christ
The Apostle Paul said, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me" (Philippians 4:13). Christ empowers us by His Spirit within us so that we can do whatever we need to do each day. We can face any situation that comes our way " financial issues, health challenges, conflicts with family or friends, even facing death - no matter what is the situation we can do all things through Christ who strengthen us. 


There Is Hope
With Christ, we have Hope and Courage. We can do hard things, we can fail and start again, we can have a new beginning, we can regain our health, we can get out of debt and prosper. We can overcome the challenges of life " with His help, His hope and His strength. God will never leave us alone " He will always be with us to help us and give us courage. Do not allow fear to torment you. Remember this: "If God is for us, who can be against us?" (Romans 8:31)

Jesus Bless you all
