MORNINGTIME 3903by Benjamin Munsell on December 15, 2021
These things I (Jesus) have spoken unto you, that in Me ye might have Peace. In the world ye shall have Tribulation: BUT BE OF GOOD CHEER; I HAVE OVERCOME THE WORLD. John 16:33. When Jesus says He has Overcome the world, that means that Satan, all his demons, imps, followers and ALL worldly situations ARE FULLY, TOTALLY AND COMPLETELY UNDER HIS FEET AND UNDER HIS CONTROL. Satan and man, both CAN NOT TOUCH YOU, EXCEPT IT GOES THROUGH THE THRONE ROOM FIRST. Satan is angry because he knows his time on earth is short, BUT HE STILL CAN'T "HAVE" YOU UNLESS THE LORD ALLOWS IT. And as a Christian, Satan's "allowances" are like a dog on a very short leash, he can only go so far, AND NO MORE. Why? The Lord Jesus will use anything and everything He wants to to Keep you (if you start to wonder off) and to Grow you in Christ. That includes growing in Holiness, Righteousness, Purity and Patience, all the way unto and into CHRISTLIKENESS. You can willingly Grow in Christ just as far as you want to, and He will help you every step of the way. When Satan seems to be having his way with you, it's ONLY because Christ is working something into, or out, of you that He has determined you need. SATAN CAN NOT RUN ROUGHSHOD OVER YOU ANYTIME hE WANTS TO. That's why the Bible says to Praise the Lord IN ALL THINGS, AT ALL TIMES, because He Knows the future and has The Best for us on His Mind. As much as possible, take your mind off your circumstances and situations and ask the Lord to direct your steps, work out all the details and order your day as He has determined. He has nothing but The Best planned for you and He will do whatever it takes to bring it to you. Thank the Lord for, and Learn from, all your trials, troubles, testing's and tribulations as they are ALL for your Benefit. This is the hardest thing you'll ever do and it is that simple. And it will be SO worth it, that you'll wonder why you didn't Thank the Lord sooner, even in the middle of it. Rest Assured, you WILL, Be Blessed.
