Friends! Jesus forewarned us of the many trouble we would encounter in this world and he assured us of the victory we have in him but we also have a part to play in winning the battle;
We live in a troubled world where covid-19 has ravaged through nations causing a big pandemonium. Who knew there was anything like this that could bring China to a standstill and affect the global markets? The headlines are shocking and bad news spreads daily like a wildfire. And these things can be quite disheartening but we have Jesus Christ who we can thank for an assuring victory in him.
When my flesh burn with desires for things of this world and my stomach churns with hunger for food to feed my flesh.
When my throat is dry and it thirst for the temporary waters of this world and my eyes lust for the worlds beauty with the power that it gives.
When my will is weak to fight off peer pressures and my strength is failing to flee from this world’s pleasure. Lord, I pray that your word will prevail in me.
Do not let my past dictate my future.
Do not let my present life unfold with ungodly features.
Make my future align with your plans and purpose for me.
