1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 Be joyful always


1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.

Looking back on the last few months the trial and tribulations seemed to be come at me like a whirl wind.  I found myself at times thinking Satan you sure are wanting to get the best of me.  I found myself saying I just cant take anymore and wondering what is my lesson in all this that is going on.

man in praiseAs if losing my mother wasn’t enough right around the corner was something else lingering at the door.  I became frustrated wanting it all to just STOP! I would lash out at the enemy telling him to back off he has no control over me and something else would happen.  The test became overwhelming at times and my flesh would become angry. Knowing that just giving into the anger I was pleasing the enemy and not God.  Needing to turn to God and pray even harder should of been the first thing I did.  So disappointed in myself because the one person that knows all to well what is going on inside me was wanting me to reach out to him as much as I was needing  him.  So I decided to deal with the enemy I needed to remember verses in the bible that dealt with the enemy and rebuke him out of my mind and let him know he will not win.  For each trial and tribulation over the last few months instead of asking God why? I chose to find the positive side and to be joyful.  We don’t always know  at first the lesson we are to learn from each event that happens in our life.  But when we seek our father he never fails to shows us.  God hears more that we say, he answers more than we ask, he gives more than we imagine but..In his own time, In his own way!

Learning know matter what the situation good or bad we need to always be joyful and give praise to God.  We need to be intentional praying to him and having that daily time devoted to him and serving him each day.  To understand that we can become weak but God has given us the armor to defend ourselves against the enemy.  It is that when Satan feels we are weak he attacks his purpose is to create confusion and conflict.  God has no desire to confuse us he does allow Satan to test us but the real test is are we going to call out to God and lean on him or give into our own flesh that only please the enemy?

In all that I do I want to please God and give thanks each day for all that has been given to me know matter the situation.  I want to be worthy of entering the kingdom and to always appreciate that Christ laid down his life for us.  I love God and in Christ name I pray each day in all I do that it be only to praise our father.
