'A Year with Jesus' for 4/18/2015
No Matter What!
Note from Jesus
Verses to Live
Read carefully these words from Paul. He lived a life of absolute passion and courage because he believed the promises he shared. These promises are true and will always be true for you! As you read these words, remember that Paul lived through extreme trials and hardships (2 Corinthians 11:24-30) because he personally trusted in the words he shared. The final verses actually come from Paul as he is awaiting martyrdom. His faith is undimmed. His heart is as passionate for Me and the gospel as when he began his ministry (2 Timothy 4:6-8; Acts 20:22-24).
So who can separate us? What can come between us and the love of God's Anointed [Jesus]? Can troubles, hardships, persecution, hunger, poverty, danger, or even death? The answer is, absolutely nothing. As the psalm says,On Your behalf, our lives are endangered constantly; we are like sheep awaiting slaughter.But no matter what comes, we will always taste victory through Him who loved us.
Response in Prayer
Lord Jesus, today I not only thank the Father — with Whom You intercede for me and before Whom you serve as my advocate — but I also thank You for the promises of Your presence in my life and the assurance that You will always be there for me — with me in my trials and with the Father to be my advocate. I thank You, Lord Jesus, for Your being alive, forever, for me and others like me who love You. Amen.
