MORNINGTIME 3246 
 
And he said, Who art thou, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest: IT IS HARD FOR THEE TO KICK AGAINST THE PICKS. And he trembling and astonished said, Lord, what wilt thou have me to do? And the Lord said unto him, Arise, and go into the city, and it shall be told thee what thou must do. Acts 9:5-6. "Pricks; to offer vain and perilous or ruinous resistance". A Prick was an ankle ring with internal nails placed on the ankle of an animal known to kick at his master. The action of a sudden kick would push the internal nails into the ankle causing pain. To stand still or just walk was relatively "painless." For the Christian, the Believer, the Follower of Christ, YOU HAVE ALREADY BEEN TAUGHT AND PREPARED TO VICTORIOUSLY AND OBEDIENTLY COME THROUGH EVERY TRIAL AND CHALLENGE YOU WILL FACE TODAY, WITH PRAISE IN YOUR MOUTH AND THANKSGIVING IN YOUR HEART. The Lord will not put on us more than we are able to handle. And ALL that we face today, WE ARE ABLE TO HANDLE, IN, THROUGH, AND WITH CHRIST, FOLLOWING THE LEADING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT. To not follow His Leading is to "kick against" His Will. And to go against Christ is painful. Again, you have already been taught and trained to handle EVERYTHING that comes into your Life, TODAY. Just Call on Christ in your moment of need.  The Lord has given us every resource we need to Victoriously Triumph OVER every opposition to the Lord's Will. So, will you Praise His Name in all things, TODAY? No, it's not easy, but Christ in you makes it doable. Why do "hard" things touch your Life? To Grow you even more in Christ, that someday, you WILL Praise Him in ALL Things. Again, ALL THINGS. In total Victory over flesh, self, and the old man nature. Over all satanic influences. Over deceptions. Over lies and the world. Walk with Christ, Grow in Him, learn to hear that Still, Small, Voice of the Holy Spirit, even in the "noisiest" situations. LIFE is all about Christ, and in Him, you will, Be Blessed.
