Manna For Today: Monday, August 7, 2017
II Timothy 2:3 – You therefore must endure suffering as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.
God doesn’t call us to worship suffering or to pursue it but to endure it as it occurs in our lives. The means by which we endure is none other than Christ Himself. God assures us that “we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us.”
The only question that remains is, will we trust His Word in this area of our lives? The temptation will be to avoid or somehow work around the suffering we experience but there will be that issue in life that you can’t ignore or cover artificially.
To identify with Christ in His suffering is to trust Him in yours and know what Christ knew. He will never leave you nor forsake you.
Remember, you are loved!
Peace and blessings!
