Look at this picture, I hope you remember this story from The Bible (Daniel 3).
A king throws 3 guys into the furnace but God saved them.
Now lets look at this picture again, the way today God want us to see it again and understand. Here I see myself in all of these three guys, one is me as my body, one is me as my heart and soul, one is me as my life and the other is God. It means it is me, my emotions, feelings, my, trust, my belief, my faith, my heart, my mind, my soul, my spirit and everything which is belongs to Me under the great trials, under the great fire of huge temperature.
The king in this world like in this story says bow before me and worship me and I will grant your life and everything you want. Demon knows that you love your wife, demon knows that you love your husband, demon knows that you love your kids, your father, your mother, your family, your boy friend, your girl friend, your lover, your job or may be you love yourself more than anyone else. Demon knows you love money too and all your weak points. And he hits right there at the right time on your weaknesses, very cleverly sometimes when you are on right way to enter The Great Kingdom of God.
But the question is whom you like most??? You can not serve two masters, we can not love the world and the God both. This is what we knows from the Bible, Holy Scripture. It is not that easy to Enter in HIS Kingdom. God paid the A Biggest Price, HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON YESHUAH, for you and you love the world more then HIM and HIS Son. Anything you like more than God is Worshipping idols.
He knows your weakest points, that you love other things in life more than God, so he hit there... he is very clever. He takes those things that you love most so that you blame it on God, so that you ask them back from God, so that you cry for those things and forget to give thanks, so that you loose your faith from HIM. BE WISE KNOW YOUR ENEMY.
FOR YOU FOR ALL OF US GOD SAYS : Seek Kingdom of God first and the other things will be add to you. This is what God Promised you.
Most of the times it is not the devil who creates problems and trials for us, it is we, who are weak in spirit and blame others. Satan tested Jesus on the last day, on the day 40 when JESUS was successfully passed HIS 39 days and night of fasting. Check yourself !! Make yourself strong in spirit.
May be today we are crying and depressed and very sad for what we had lost in past few days or months or years but we why we have forgotten the greatest to the smallest blessings of God we had in our life. Even we can give thanks everyday that we are safe and alive on the land or at least we have two safe eyes, two hands, two legs and a good working brain. Give thanks that Jesus loved us HE died for us. For me, these are the Enough reasons to smile and be happy from the bottom of my heart everyday !!
May be you are going through a very tough time today. But believe me, it is definate that if you are in Christ you have to face these troubles and even more great trials. It is upto you, what you want???? You want yourself on your knees and burn in fire of hell or just want to STAND FIRM with God and be victorious with HIM. Because the battle has already won 2014 years ago by Jesus Christ, Yeshuah our Lord. And that Victorious Man is with you. If you giveup, His great sacrifice on the Cross will gone in vain for you. If not, then stand up with cheer on your face because just by faith in Christ Jesus, You are Victorious!! And faith is dead if it is not in action. He says :
And Moses said to the people, "Fear not, stand firm and see the salvation of the Lord, which HE will work for you today. For the Egyptians whom you see today, you shall never see again. The LORD will fight for you, and you have only to be silent."
1 Corinthians 10 :13
No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and He will not let you tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation He will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.
2 Corinthians 12:9
But He said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for My power is made perfect in weaknesses." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
I can do all things through HIM who strengthens me.
You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.
The whole Bible is written for you, The Word of God is for you because God want you to be save and the others to throw in the fire of hell or punish who do not believe in Him. The Eternal life is for you. First save yourself, stand firmly on firm ground and then save others too. God loves you every day, every moment, HE loved you even when you are in sin. HE is with us all time. HE is giving us and others chances to come and stay in God and bring others to God before its too late.
1 Peter 4:12-13
Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery trial when it comes upon you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you. But rejoice insofar as you share Christ's sufferings, that you may also rejoice and be glad when HIS glory is revealed.
REJOICE IN HOPE, BE PATIENT IN TERBULATION, BE CONSTANT IN PRAYER.
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil,
for You are with me;
Your rod and Your staff,
they comfort me.
Jesus bear the Cross of our sins So that we have eternal life and we are busy and crying for the temporary things, of this temporary world. The wealth is there, above in heaven, seek for it. Every good thing of this world may be not for you because your treasure is up there in heaven. Seek Kingdom of God First rest is in Merciful Hands of our Abba, Father God.
ALWAYS REMEMBER - JOB 5:19
"HE WILL DELIVER YOU FROM SIX TROUBLES; IN SEVEN NO evil SHALL TOUCH YOU."
