Do Not Receive The Lie!

Do Not Receive The Lie!

26. And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honored, all the members rejoice with it. 27Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular. 1 Corinthians 12:26-27

Sometimes when we go through things it is so very easy to think that we are the only ones suffering. This is not true. Many in the body of Christ are going through suffering in some form or another to different degrees. The Lord knows what you can handle. Does God bring suffering? No, but He does allow it and it works together for good for those that love God.

We look at Job and how satan went before the Lord and received permission to come against Job. Is today any different? God may very well be saying, "that you His servant are doing all the right things". Then like Job the enemy comes along and says but God if you take away this or that he or she will not serve you. They will curse you and quit walking with you.

Do NOT receive the lie! You have come this far by faith and need to keep on going. Though the enemy tries to destroy your faith, it will not be destroyed because what the enemy meant for evil God is going to turn for good. Today you may be going through the fellowship of His sufferings but know that the Lord is for you so who can be against you. Remember to pray for your brothers and sisters who are also going through this season with you and that you are all part of ONE body. When one suffers we all suffer. We are NOT just suffering on our own. Let us get our eyes off of ourselves and place our eyes firmly on Jesus the author and finisher of our faith and keep our eyes open to the needs that are around us. It is amazing that as your pray for others even during your own time of suffering that grace is there to overcome.

You are an overcomer and have faith to move mountains. See those mountains moved now, in Jesus name. Faith is the victory that overcomes the world. Overcome beloved, overcome.

9Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world.
1 Peter 12:9 (NKJV)
