Do you face impossible odds?
February 19, 2010
"The LORD will fight for you, and you have only to be silent."
There's an amazing military story that's told about the epic Battle of Waterloo fought in 1815. Maybe you recall from world history that the French Emperor Napoleon was intent upon conquering the world and seemed unstoppable.
At the time of this critical battle, all that stood between Napoleon's quest for world domination and the defeat of the British Empire was England's Duke of Wellington and the Anglo-Allied armies. But given Napoleon's momentum, hope was bleak.
The only communication tool to relay the battle details were signals in the sky projected by ships at sea. And when those first signals appeared overhead, a wave of horror washed over those awaiting news. The signals read: "Wellington defeated."
All hope seemed lost; grown men wept openly. But then people slowly began to notice more words appearing from behind some moving clouds. And when the whole could be seen, it said: "Wellington defeated Napoleon at Waterloo."
Now listen, when Jesus died on the cross everyone thought he was history, too. But on that glorious third day our Lord and Savior Jesus arose from the grave. And the rest of the story could be told: Jesus defeated death at the cross!
Even if you face impossible odds, never give up. With Jesus you cannot be defeated. The victory is sure! The one who conquered death will make a way for you.
YOU ARE NOT DEFEATED. THE VICTORY IS SURE!
OUR THANKS TO YOU!
Do the words rested... peaceful... and refreshed describe you today? Or do the words stressed... rushed... and pressured better describe your way of life?
If you're like most Christians, you'd probably have to admit those last three words more accurately describe your life most of the time!
The good news is that it doesn't have to be this way... even when your life is one big pressure-cooker. And in my new book, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out, I'll show you why.
Based on the principles from Paul's letter to the Philippians and Psalm 23, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out will help you find true peace and rest in a world that is anything but peaceful and restful. It's the perfect "pause" button you need!
So please request your copy of Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out when you give online today! --Jack Graham
