Embrace The New You
These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world (John 16:33).
I can remember, when I was a boy, the trauma of growing up. All of the responsibilities of life became real to me, and I was concerned that I would not be able to handle them all. Yet, with the help of my family, I was able to make the transition from youth to adult with guarded anticipation. God was really with me and I was able to see that the things I feared did not happen.
We will have trials, tests and even anguish as we make the transition from our old way of life, to our new life in Christ. You may ask why does this happen. Well, I can only tell you that the devil does not want to let you go. He wants to keep you in bondage and in fear. Yet, we can safely trust in the Lord to provide the deliverance we need on a daily basis.
This is the way it is in the life of the believer; many of the things you are anticipating will not come to pass as you continue to put your trust in the Lord.
As we take in the Word of God, something happens to our spirit man. He actually gets stronger. That’s right! A daily diet of the Word of God will bring us to maturity in Christ.
We stand today in the fullness and power of the Word of God. No more nurturing harmful thoughts of the imagination. We take this moment to breath the breath of God and to embrace His expectation of love, joy and peace that surpasses our own limited understanding.
