Starting Over With God-Part 7

October 11


When God is nudging us to step out in faith and do something we do not think we can do, or that we do not think we are capable of doing, it can make things hard on us. We must be determined to be a man or woman who walks by faith. We must realize that we cannot do this in our own strength. Our determination to live the Christian life must be based on the fact that I’m in Christ and Christ is in me, and He is the One who empowers me to live this life. 

My friend, we must remember that we are living within a small portion of time, and in this time, we are to run with endurance the race that is set before us. We must choose to run this race knowing that I’m in Christ and Christ is in me, and He empowers me to run the right way. Yes, there will be difficulties, but we must choose to respond the right way, and if we choose to respond the wrong way, we will find ourselves right back where we might be today. When we choose to respond the wrong way to difficulties it will stunt our spiritual growth. Put your faith in God’s word and choose to respond God’s way!
