Be encouraged: Part Two
March 17, 2021
God used Paul’s imprisonment to encourage others to trust the Lord in many types of circumstances in this life that we might find ourselves.
Philippians 1:12-14 TPT (Paul’s Imprisonment)
12 "I want you to know, dear ones, what has happened to me has not hindered, but helped my ministry of preaching the gospel, causing it to expand and spread to many people.
13 "For now the elite Roman guards and government officials overseeing my imprisonment have plainly recognized that I am here because of my love for the Anointed One.
14 "And what I’m going through has actually caused many believers to become even more courageous in the Lord and to be bold and passionate to preach the Word of God, all because of my chains."
Whatever this Covid-19 pandemic has thrown at you to try and hinder you, we can turn it around like Paul did and use it to preach the gospel. Praise God! I must say that I have been given more opportunities in different ways to go and present to the world Jesus Christ.
In a shaky world our God is still stable. You can depend on Him to get you through your problems causing you to be victorious over them, even when it looks like you are done and can’t reach the goal. I found that if I can just catch my breath, I can make it. Knowing that there are those that are praying for me makes it even easier to keep up it the race.
Father, I lift up my family to You in Jesus's name and ask that You give them hope in a hopeless situation. That You extend Your hands of grace that are filled with mercy to cover them from the top of their heads to the tips of their toes. We break the assignment that is set to destroy them, and speak a healing over them now. In Jesus's name, Amen.
Blessings on the journey, and remember that the best is yet to come.
