One Crisis after Another – February 23, 2015

Today’s Scripture… “It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.”  – Matthew 4:4

Thoughts for Today… We’ve all had them.  Those days (even weeks) when it just seems like there is one crisis after another.  When we get one problem solved, another arises.  When one hardship is overcome, another begins.  It’s like a never-ending cycle sometimes. You know what I’m talking about?

It’s easy to get discouraged sometimes.  But we shouldn’t lose heart, because God is at work in our lives even in the midst of pain and suffering.  It’s important for us to remember to partake of a healthy diet of God’s Word each day, in order that we might avoid growing weak spiritually, because… every negative thing we think during our time of hardship, God has something positive to say…

Don’t forget to read the Word this morning as you start your day.  It might be just what you need to be renewed and strengthened.  See what God has to say to you!

Have a “Wonderful DAY in Christ,”
