The Lord has been good to us throughout the year. We read a lot, heard a lot, saw a lot, and felt a lot of almost everything. From the crash of Malaysia airliners to ISIS threats and executions, Firing of rockets to Israel by Hamas, Ebola virus, shooting of Michael Brown and others in US, Sanctions against Russia, abduction of over 200 girls by Boko haram, CEOs telling the World they are gays, etc. But through it all, God has kept us safe. Hallelujah!
As we are remembering the birth of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Saviour, the Only Son of The Living God, let us pray that the peace and happiness we have in Him will be extended to the rest of the world, especially places where people (including Christians) are suffering from poverty, sicknesses and diseases, persecution, threat of death, etc.
Jesus came to set God’s children free from the works of the evil one and I trust that when we do our part by praying, His Spirit will go to those places and comfort the hearts of our brothers and sisters there and send them help in these times of need.
I pray that God shows Himself to you in a greater way in the remaining days of 2014 in Jesus’ Name. Friend, it is not too late to believe. He is more than able to help you achieve everything you set your mind on to do this year. Keep believing, Keep hoping, and Keep trusting in the Lord.
Thank y’all for your help, support, and prayer throughout the year. God bless us!
Thank you Uplifting Christ for a very encouraging message for Christmas giving us assurance and Joy in knowing God is always with us regardless of the Trouble and hardship we encounter in Life.
Isaiah 43:1-3 – Do not be afraid, for I have ransomed you. I have called you by name; you are mine. When you go through deep waters and great trouble, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown! When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you. For I am the LORD, your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Saviour.”
Jeremiah 29 :11-12 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.
Lamentations 3: 33 For God doth not afflict willingly nor grieve the children of men.
Many Blessings Uplifting Christ for Christmas and the New Year for you and your Loved ones.
