The God of more than enough! John 16:33

Good morning everyone,
Do you know that you serve a God that is more than enough to take care of anything that you might come up against?  There is nothing that you can face that He has not already faced!  In John 16:33, Jesus tells us, "I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace.  In this world you will have trouble.  But take heart!  I will overcome the world."  See, we serve a God that never said it would be a cake walk, but if we stay faithful, we can have all the cake that we want to eat.  So many times people get discouraged and disheartened to the point of giving up because they feel as though they are alone.  They wonder how they could have ever gotten to the point they are at:  Lowest of lows!  They may even blame the God that created them for the mess they are in and they simply turn their back on Him!  By believing in the scriptures, there is promise after promise assuring each of us that He will carry us when we need to be carried and He will deliver us when we need to be delivered.  In the midst of turmoil there is peace, if you allow God to be your peacemaker!  So when you have trouble and you will, remember to take heart and He will help you overcome each and every obstacle.  Ephesians 1:13-14 says it's in  Christ that you, once you heard the truth and believed it (this message of your salvation), found yourselves free --signed, sealed, and delivered by the Holy Spirit.  This signet from God is the first installment on what's coming, a reminder that we'll get everything God has planned for us, a praising and glorious life.
Your brother in Christ,

  1. Paul, your posts are always so uplifting for me! Thank you! I'm sorry I don't comment, but I try to read each one!

    One of my favorite verses:
    Why are you cast down my soul? Why groan within me? Trust in God! I will praise Him still. My savior and my God! (Ps 42)

    Punctuations are my own addition... ;) I love this verse and it reminds me that I have to trust God through everything!
    God Bless you brother!
