The Word For You Today
Who Are you Relying On? Jesus said, “Here on earth you will have many trials” (Jn 16:33 NLT). You solve one problem, and another one comes along to take its place. They’re not all big but they’re all necessary to your spiritual growth. How do you assess the strength of something? By testing it! The Bible says: “Don’t be...shocked that you are going through testing...it will prepare you” (IPe 4:12-13 CEV). Some of your most life-enriching experiences will come during your worst moments-when your heart is broken, when you feel abandoned, when you’re out of options, when your pain levels go through the roof-and you turn to God. That’s when you learn to pray heartfelt, honest-to-God prayers. When you’re in pain you don’t have the energy for superficial ones. And that’s when you discover, “The Lord is close to the brokenhearted” (Ps 34:18 NLT). God could have kept Joseph out of prison, Daniel out of the lions’ den, Jeremiah out of the slimy pit, and Paul from being shipwrecked, but He didn’t. As a result, each one of them was drawn closer to God and impacted the world around them. Your problems force you to look to God and depend on Him instead of yourself. This is especially hard on superachievers like Paul. “We...saw how powerless we were to help ourselves; but that was good, for then we put everything into the hands of God, who alone could save us” (2 Co 1:9 TLB). You’ll never know what God can do until God is all you’ve got. So place your needs into His capable, loving hands, and watch what happens. This article was from “The Word For You Today”. If you would like to have your own copy, drop us a line with a gift of $20.00 or more (to cover our costs for buying and mailing it) giving us your address and we will be glad to send you a copy next quarter.
Jeremiah 29:11-13 NKJV - For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.
We recently had our power supply coming into the building replaced. The previous one was very old and unsafe. Many thanks to RL Todd Electrical of Caribou who successfully installed a new power supply and new meter. So we should be in good safe shape to continue spreading the good news for many years to come.
SHARE WITH US—If you have a prayer request or a praise, don’t hesitate to share with us: 492-6000 or email us at: email@example.com. We love to hear how God has worked in your life, supplied your need or encouraged you in a certain situation. He gives us life and breath and supplies our needs daily. We have much to be thankful for.
Philippians 1: 3 - 6
I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. (NIV)
