Good morning brothers and sisters. May the peace of God be upon you! This morning as I was looking for a scripture, I found one that I wasn't looking for. That is how amazing God is. He knows what needs to be said and what I need to hear. Sometimes I get caught up! I get caught up in wanting people to know the Jesus that I know. And in that getting caught up, I forget to be still and listen. But this morning was different. My every thought has been on the Lord this morning. And He had me read that even though this world wants to bash Him and bring His children down, they preach the gospel. How? By how we react. And what my family is going through right now, is how He is going to open the eyes of some. He will reveal Himself to them in His time. I just have to keep running the race. I have to love my Judas. I have to pray for my Judas. I have to pray for our nation. I have to stand firm with my full armor on knowing that Jesus is right beside me all the way. Philippians 1:12-18. But I want you to know, brethren, that the things which happened to me have actually turned out for the furtherance of the gospel, so that it has become evident to the whole palace guard, and to all the rest, that my chains are in Christ; and most of the brethren in the Lord, having become confident by my chains, are much more bold to speak the word without fear. Some indeed preach Christ even from envy and strife, and some also from goodwill. The former preach Christ from selfish ambition, not sincerely, supposing to add affliction to my chains; but the latter out of love, knowing that I am appointed for the defense of the gospel. What then? Only that in every way whether in pretense or in truth, Christ is preached; and in this I rejoice, yes and will rejoice. See sometimes they don't even know what they are doing. By attacking, they should have you drawing nearer to the Lord. And when God uses this for His glory, how many will see, repent and turn to Jesus. Rise up child of God, praise Him.
