You drew near on the day I called on You, And said, “Do not fear!” O Lord, You have pleaded the case for my soul; You have redeemed my life. (Lamentations 3:57-58 NKJV)
On the day you committed your life to The Lord, The Lord committed your soul to His body and you were blessed beyond all blessings! You got to live forever! Your life had been redeemed by the blood of Jesus!
Now… “Let us search out and examine our ways, And turn back to the LORD; Let us lift our hearts and hands To God in heaven.” (Lamentations 3:40-41 NKJV)
Keep your eyes on the prize! Stay focused on the mission! You were predestined to be a follower of Christ, now follow Him! Let Him lead you down that straight and narrow path where victory will be achieved and death will be defeated!
Ask Christ to dwell inside your heart, ask Him to be your strength so you you can persevere like a good soldier! Keep your feet in sync with The Lord’s and stay focused with His truths! Stand tall and don’t quit! For the time is short and the battlefield is long! Gird yourself with the full armor of Christ and prepare yourself to win the battle!
Stand tall and let Jesus be your all!” Reach for the heavenly realms! Reach for the Spirit that is Christ and pull him close to your soul!
Heavenly Father, Lord high above, we ask that you give us the strength to overcome all things! Help us to realize without you we are nothing! Lord God, we will be joyful in all things no matter our circumstances! We will be good soldiers for Your purpose and not ours! We will stand tall in your all! Father, we ask that you come quickly! It is Your will to be done not ours! In Jesus’ name we pray these things! Amen!
