For those of you who need encouragement to walk in the obedience of the Lord today, the following scripture is meant to do just that. It comes from 1 Peter 1:3-12. And although our life is not our own, we can still walk boldly even though things will not be perfect.
"Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade. This inheritance is kept in heaven for you, who through faith are shielded by God’s power until the coming of the salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time. In all this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. These have come so that the proven genuineness of your faith—of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire—may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed. Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy, for you are receiving the end result of your faith, the salvation of your souls."
Be encouraged in the Lord today and know that you can indeed get through anything you may be going through, because the Lord is on your side and He resides in you. Because of that, you are blessed in the city and blessed in the field. And there is nothing you can't get through. You're going to make it. Be encouraged as you live a living hope in the Lord.
