When All Else Fails ...

Written by Joyce C. Lock


Continued from page 1

"God always answers in time. So, bug off, Satan. Get out of our face. It makes no difference if you make us fear or not. God is still God and it is impossible for Him to fail."

It isn't even about getting angry enough at Satan. It's realizing that you have a Heavenly Father that loves you beyond anything Satan can threaten. To listen to Satan lying about God's love for you is only torment and it is not true. To agree with Satan is to call God a liar.

And, once we realize that, we might want to ask God's forgiveness and, thereafter, run to Him at onset; to ask God to remove all negativity, as we don't want to dishonor Him in even our thoughts. And, when such a request comes fromrepparttar heart, God is honor bound and faithful to answer.

God is love. That is Who He is. He loved you while you were yet a sinner. He choose you before you even knew Him. He does not change. His love is still there, for your taking, and His love never fails.

Though,repparttar 138321 best part of warfare isrepparttar 138322 V I C T O R Y !!! And when it comes, through your tears of joy, you might not only thank God for His unfailing love but also apologize for forgetting ... God's word is true, His love is real, and He always answers in time!

Considerrepparttar 138323 lilies how they grow: they toil not, they spin not; and yet I say unto you, that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.

Luke 12:27

God temperedrepparttar body so there would be no schism, but that members would finally realize 'havingrepparttar 138320 same care, one for another,' is not negotiable. We're to haverepparttar 138321 same care forrepparttar 138322 custodian asrepparttar 138323 preacher,repparttar 138324 same respect forrepparttar 138325 follower asrepparttar 138326 leader,repparttar 138327 same love forrepparttar 138328 sinner as our most cherished friend.

Therefore, those members ofrepparttar 138329 body whose service we think to be less honourable ~ upon these we bestow more abundant honour. And, once we do so, we will begin to discover one shouldn't have thought more highly of themselves than they ought (Romans 12:3). But also, ministries will begin to flourish wherein all members will rejoice!

Is not thisrepparttar 138330 fast that I have chosen? to looserepparttar 138331 bands of wickedness, to undorepparttar 138332 heavy burdens, and to letrepparttar 138333 oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke?

Isaiah 58:6

Until then, we mourn for The Suffering Church.
