“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.” – Joshua 1:9
Today Dear Saints of Abundant Harvest Fellowship Philippines, I would like to share with you what God has continuously impressed in my heart this day: Do not lose heart. Do not fall and give up but steady yourself by God’s grace, move out of your comfort zone and seek His face. Many of us might be facing trials and tribulation; but if we are centered on God’s will, standing for righteousness- living a life of purity and holiness then we can be assured of victory over our circumstances.
Your situation may look bleak, or things may have gone ill and the problems and trials you face seem insurmountable but stand in faith and fix your eyes on what is unseen- fix your eyes on Jesus the author and finisher of our faith for He has gone before us to show us the path, that there are rewards for the each trials you win over- not by our might or power but by the Spirit of God.
I would like us all to take this time to reflect and know that our light and temporary trials are nothing compared to that eternal weight of Glory, the great reward of one day seeing our Father face to face, yes we may be pressed but we are not crushed- we maybe persecuted but not abandoned, struck down but not destroyed- and though we are hurting, if we fix our eyes on the eternal and stand in faith, fixing our eyes on Jesus- we will succeed and we will overcome, that the afflictions are but molding tool to prepare us for what God has in store, In Jesus Name Amen!
Have a blessed day everyone! – Pastor Lyle Lopez
