LIVING YOUR LIVES IN AN UNFRIENDLY WORLD
Little ones, fear not what is coming. Do you remember when Elisha’s servant was afraid, and the Lord opened his eyes to see the army of heaven surrounding him? Nothing surprises Me and nothing happens to any of you without My approval. I beseech you, don’t lose your confidence that the I AM is leading you. Internalize that I know the end from the beginning and that I hold all of you by the hand as you grow into the full stature of Myself.
Remember, all things work together for good for those who love Me. I desire you to live your lives to the very fullest, even when living your lives in an unfriendly world. I learned obedience through the things I suffered and it is no different with you. Trust Me dear ones, as I trusted My Father.
“When the servant of the man of God got up early the next morning and went outside, there were troops, horses, and chariots everywhere."Ah, my lord, what will we do now?" he cried out to Elisha. "Don't be afraid!" Elisha told him. "For there are more on our side than on theirs!" Then Elisha prayed, "O LORD, open his eyes and let him see!" The LORD opened his servant's eyes, and when he looked up, he saw that the hillside around Elisha was filled with horses and chariots of fire.” (2 Kings 6:15-17 NLT)
“And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren. Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.” (Romans 8:28-30 KJV)
“though He was a Son, yet He learned obedience by the things which He suffered. And having been perfected, He became the author of eternal salvation to all who obey Him,” (Hebrews 5:8-9 NKJ)
“until we come to such unity in our faith and knowledge of God's Son that we will be mature and full grown in the Lord, measuring up to the full stature of Christ.” (Ephesians 4:13 NLT)
