How many times have you heard someone say, how long must I endure this? We seem to think that we have to endure things that the enemy tries to throw at us. But the word says, The Lord's Mercy Endures Forever. How many times does the Lord have to tell us, to cast our cares over to Him?
The next time you ask, how long you must endure, stop and remember His word. You only have to endure until you give it to Him.
1 Pet 5 v 7...Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you....
This scripture tells you how long you must endure, until you cast your cares upon Him so that He might exalt you, deliver you out of your trouble in due time. When is due time, when you give it up and give it to Him. AMEN!
PS 138 v 7-8.....Though I walk in the midst of trouble, You will revive me; You will stretch out Your hand against the wrath of my enemies, and Your right hand will save me. The Lord will perfect that which concerns me; Your mercy, O Lord, endures forever; Do not forsake the works of Your hands....
This scripture tells us that the Lord will save us from our enemies. That He will perfect that which concerns us. If you have sickness in your body, then give it back to the LORD, so that He may perfect that which concerns you. He already took it once on the cross, why are you trying to take it back.
This is where our Faith comes in. We have to trust in the LORD and in His word to do what He tells us to do. We make something so simple so hard. That is why it is so important to stay in His word and know what His word tells us to do in every situation of life.
Prov. 16 v 20....He who heeds the word wisely will find good, and whoever trusts in the LORD, happy is he....
Prov 29 v 25...The fear of man brings a snare, but whoever trusts in the LORD shall be safe...
What is a snare? It is a trap. The enemy puts fear of something in you, so that he may trap you and keep you in his snare, in his hands. When you cast out that fear and trust in the LORD, then you are putting yourself into the LORD's hands. Whose hands would you rather be in? The choice is up to you.
A good scenario, when a child runs and jumps into a parents arms because they trust that parent to keep them safe from whatever is chasing them, or scaring them. The same is true with us and our Father in heaven.
The next time fear creeps up in you, stop and resist the devil, do not place yourself into his hands, instead jump into the arms of the LORD, HE is more than able to rescue you from that snare whatever it might be. AMEN!
Remember His Mercy Endures Forever, not just this one time, not just for a little while, but FOREVER. AMEN!
STAY IN THE WORD!
