Psalms 119:42 by mvcquotes on DeviantArt

Good morning! I pray that you are as excited as I am about today and the opportunities that lie ahead! Today’s verse weighs heavily on my heart because we are in a day and age where right is called wrong and wrong is called right! Man’s heart is so confused and so misled by the god of this world. Let’s dig in the word and find Jesus in today’s verse.

So shall I have wherewith to answer him that reproacheth me: for I trust in Jesus. We have all been at some point in our lives, after salvation, where we have had the skeptic make every effort to question our faith. Those who do not believe in faith do not have that peace which surpasses all understanding (Phil. 4:7). But as a believer, I recognize that Christ took my punishment on that cross. I could have been left to my own devices, living a life of “trying” to be good. But as a child of the King, I am able to choose, as Joshua stated in the Old Testament, Joshua 24:15a … choose you this day whom ye will serve; 

Who do you serve? If you serve the Lord, you will have an answer for anyone who asks you about your faith. Even if you have never personally led someone to the Lord, you can still talk about what Jesus did for you, my friend. You can give your own testimony and share the joy and freedom that came with your salvation. If you don’t remember the Bible verse’s address and the exact wording, share what you do remember. Tell the person that you’ll get back to him with the exact reference and wording. Don’t let the devil get you caught up in the jots and tittles. Trust in the Holy Spirit’s ability to bring back to memory what He needs to you to speak!

The days have indeed grown more evil and hearts are even harder than when I was first born again in 1980. 2 Tim. 4:1-5 I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; 2 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. 3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; 4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.  5 But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry. We are in those days when people have voted into pastoral office, preachers who preach what the people want to hear and not what they need to hear.

Because of this, we seem to be required to have even more fervency in sharing Jesus Christ with a lost and dying world! Lead them to Christ and trust the Holy Spirit to do His work. Trust in the Lord Jesus to accomplish what needs to be done in your heart as well as the hearts of others. I may not understand why He has led me into a certain situation, but you can be sure it is because He wants God to have all the glory, not me! That is why I continue with this blog. If only a few sets of eyes read its contents, I pray that the Holy Spirit will work in that heart!
