Hi, sweet saints!!! A powerful thought for us to ponder is that the earth is the perfect setup for us as people to defeat darkness with the power of God living in us!!! Wow!!! Where do you see darkness and how is Father calling you to defeat it with His help??? Oh Father promises us this:
“We can do all things thru Christ who gives us strength.”
As far as it concerns us as individuals, we can always choose to walk in the light, resting in our Father’s sufficient grace for us as victory. However, others can choose to stand against light as Father’ gives them freewill. We can pray over them with HOPE – having only powerful expectations as Jesus prayed for Simon Peter saying:
“Simon, Simon, Satan has asked to sift each of you like wheat. But I have pleaded in prayer for you, Simon, that your faith should not fail. So when you have repented and turned to me again, strengthen your brothers.”
We do not need to live in their abuse if they choose not to turn to the light because in doing so, we only condone it to continue. However, even if apart, we can continue to pray for their victory in Jesus!!!
I love the words of this serenity prayer:
“God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
Courage to change the things I can,
And wisdom to know the difference.”
In Jesus’ day, not everyone who had light shared with them accepted it. Jesus still had a heart of hope for them!!! The same is true today!!! However, Peter was one who overcame the darkness and stood for Jesus!!! HOOORRRAAAHHH!!! SO CAN WE, PRECIOUS SAINTS!!! SO CAN WE!!! GOING FOR THE LIGHT WITH YA’S AND SHARING IT AS JESUS DID FOR ALL THOSE WHO WILL BELIEVE AND ACCEPT IT!!! CONTINUING TO PRAY FOR THOSE WHO HAVEN’T!!!
God’s Holy Spirit can work beyond all we can ask or imagine and we can be assured that He loves people more so than our hearts can!!!
I LOVE THIS SONG HERE ABOUT BEING SALT AND LIGHT IN THE WORLD FOR JESUS, JUST AS JESUS WAS IN ORDER TO DEFEAT THE ENEMY AND BRING HEAVENLY VICTORY!!! PROUD OF YOU FOR DOING THE SAME!!!
