I decided I needed a faith booster….so I got into the Word, and as usual, It did not disappoint. Join me in a spirit of joy, faith and promise….even though the ground beneath us might crumble and give way….I can hear my Father singing over me…It’s going to be okay…(Tasha Layton song Into the Sea)
For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. 2Timothy 1:7
Faith Triumphs in Trouble
1Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, 2through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. 3And not only that, but we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance; 4and perseverance, character; and character, hope. 5Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.
Christ in Our Place
6For when we were still without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. 7For scarcely for a righteous man will one die; yet perhaps for a good man someone would even dare to die. 8But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. 9Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him. 10For if when we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life. 11And not only that, but we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received the reconciliation. Romans 5 1-11
The Parable of the Fig Tree
32 “Now learn this parable from the fig tree: When its branch has already become tender and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is near. 33 So you also, when you see all these things, know that [e]it is near—at the doors! 34 Assuredly, I say to you, this generation will by no means pass away till all these things take place. 35 Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away. Matthew 24 33-35
These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” John 16:33
Because you have kept My command to persevere, I also will keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth. Revelation 3:10
So whatever the world or the enemy uses to try to trip us up…..we need to keep focused, up, looking up, fighting the good fight, praying without ceasing and resting in God’s promises because He is faithful!! We are already victorious through Christ Jesus our King!! If He is for us then who can be against us?
Our work is almost finished here….let Him be finding us showing Christ’s love and witnessing to the lost in our last breath on this earth…it’s almost here, we’re almost Home, hang on siblings….it’s a bumpy ride but we know the One who holds us, and He will never let go.
The Spirit and the bride say Come, Come Lord Jesus!!

Very comforting. The world system has already been tried and found guilty. It will be obliterated soon enough. :)

33 These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”
