1 Peter 4:12 (KJV)
12  Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you:

Over the course of my ministry, how oft have I said:

" MAJOR ILLNESS/TROUBLE/TRIBULATION IS WHEN IT HAPPENS TO ME!

minor illness/trouble/tribulation is when it happens to you!"

As I drove to my music class this past week, I carried on a lengthy spiritual conversation when someone encountering a business problem WAY beyond my understanding and/or pay grade.

As I listened intently to this person describing the size of the mountain he faced, I almost chuckled (in the spirit, of course).

I gently quoted the above Scripture to him and encouraged him with its Words:

1 Peter 4:12 (KJV)
12  Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you:

WITHOUT any political leaning, I read this past week:

" If you think they're going to give you your country back without a fight, you are sadly mistaken,"

So.............................

" If you think they're going to give you ___________ (YOU fill in the blank!) without a fight, you are sadly mistaken,"

" MAJOR ILLNESS/TROUBLE/TRIBULATION IS WHEN IT HAPPENS TO ME!

minor illness/trouble/tribulation is when it happens to you!"

WE ALL HAVE OUR OWN AND UNIQUE PERSONAL DEMONS AND BATTLES TO FIGHT!!!!

Philippians 2:12 (KJV)
12  Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.

" WORK OUT YOUR OWN SALVATION WITH FEAR AND TREMBLING!!!!"

Beloved, this BATTLE we each fight is REAL!!!!

That mountain YOU face IS daunting and that angry Goliath IS 10 feet tall!!!

satan will NEVER stop-NEVER EVER STOP-trying to thwart YOU and defeat YOU!!

John 10:10 (KJV)
10  The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.  

Just as soon as YOU ascend one mountain and exalt in the victory, satan has another mountain/obstacle even more daunting awaiting YOU!!

Ephesians 6:12 (KJV)
12  For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.  

Just because YOU want to do the RIGHT thing, live Holy for the Lord and do EXPLOITS IN JESUS NAME does NOT mean satan agrees with YOU!!!

Matthew 11:12 (KJV)
12  And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.  

When WE became Christians, (BY THE WONDERFUL AND AMAZING GRACE AND LOVE OF GOD!), we became SOLDIERS OF THE CROSS-

NOT passengers on a vacation cruse ship!!!

2 Timothy 2:3 (KJV)
3  Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.  

THIS IS ALL OUT WAR!!!

Mark 9:29 (KJV)
29  And he said unto them, This kind can come forth by nothing, but by prayer and fasting.  

TODAY, it matters not how big YOUR mountain is, IT

" CAN come forth by nothing, BUT by PRAYER AND FASTING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

Whatever the mountain in YOUR life is, best be about doing more PRAYER AND FASTING!!!!

AMEN!!??

GETERDUN!

GOD BLESS YOU!!
