Your child development_2“The Lord said to Satan, “Have you considered My servant Job? For there is no one like him on the earth, a blameless and upright man, fearing God and turning away from evil.”  You’re in a “middle of a wonderful dream. You’re riding the ocean waves with your family when BAM! along comes a giant sea creature poised for attack.

You begin to thrash away in bed, trying to fight off the monster. When you call out, your mother comes in to see what’s wrong. “It’s all right,” she says, “You had a bad dream,” and now you’re awake. safe in your mother’s arms” (KidsHealth)

My friends, it is probably safe to say throughout our childhood, we have all had our share of nightmares or bad dreams, they usually occurred in our lives between “5 to 8 year-olds, because this is at the point in our lives when we begin having rapidly expanding grasp of real-life perils” that just don’t make a whole lot of since at that age.

But one day, we didn’t have our mothers calming voice there to tell us “It’s all right,” you are only having a nightmare. One day life in itself 51IMgSEH0nL._SL500_AA280_became a never ending nightmare. And then, we found the comfort of a loving savior saying,  “its all right”  I’m here, “Be strong and courageous, do not be afraid or tremble at [life], for the Lord your God is the one who goes with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.” Deu. 31:6 (NASB)

Then we gave it all to Christ “All to Jesus we surrendered All to Him we freely give we will ever love and trust Him In His presence daily live All to Jesus we surrender Humbly at His feet we bow, Worldly pleasures all forsaken, Take me, Jesus, take me now.” And it is at that point, when it seems the nightmares resumed, only this time they came back with a vengeance, an ever ending cycle; a child on drugs.

An unhappy marriage, unemployment, the mortgage due with no finances coming in. Evan the dog dies. We as children of the king can go through a thousand scenarios. But my friends, did it ever occur to you, God is standing back like a proud parent, knowing His Children are unique? For there is no one like them on the earth, blameless and upright men and women, fearing God and turning away from evil.”

bo12While Satan continues His attacks on us with a vengeance. But this my friends is why God’s word must be hid within our heart, [that we will] not sin against” the one who gave His all for our salvation. In addition, we cannot become complacent about our salvation and the time we spend with God.

There can never be a time when what the god of this world places before us in the form of entertainment each evening on our TV’s, becomes more important than spending quality time with God and seeking His presence with a passion right here before the close of history as we know it. My friends, there must be a passion from within, if our goal is life eternal.

Consistent with this, without that passion that builds faith,we will never know that trials and “tribulation brings about perseverance; and perseverance, proven character; and proven character, hope; and hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out within our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us.” which allows us to stay strong as God brags, because He knows we want give up, until we can cross over into the promise land.


So friends stay focused, remain faithful, love one another and endure till the end and never forget to STUDY&PRAY
