Moment by Moment

Our need for strength daily is found in this moment, this very second. Since nothing past the present moment is guaranteed, and with each breath a new challenge, God gives us strength moment by moment. Often I hear, God give me strength to make it through this day, but it should say God, give me strength to make it through this moment, the now, right now. Since the day is 24 hours long and we tend to think the day is guaranteed to us, we neglect to ask for God’s strength now, for it is this very moment that we need God’s strength most.

John 16:33John 16:33
English: King James Version (1611) - KJV

33 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.

“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.”

Peace can only be found in Christ and nowhere else. The truth of the matter is once a Christian is saved they often find the level of tribulation and the frequency with which it comes much greater than when he or she was lost. When the world is hectic around us, and the trials of life are upon us, where could you go for help but too the Lord who has overcome the world?

I John 4:4John 4:4
English: King James Version (1611) - KJV

4 And he must needs go through Samaria.

Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is He that is in you, than He that is in the world.

The peace in the moment is not necessarily relief from the trial, but from an understanding that victory is possible over the trial which can be laughable to many as near impossible, but to the child of God, nothing is impossible or too hard for God.

Jeremiah 32:27Jeremiah 32:27
English: King James Version (1611) - KJV

27 Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh: is there any thing too hard for me?

Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh: is there any thing too hard for me?”

So, Child of God, take a moment today to thank God, to praise God, and to rest in God. In doing so you will feel refreshed, re-energized, and ready for the next moments challenges. Have a Great Day and I look forward to seeing you at church tonight.
