This has always been one of my favorite scriptures. Found in Acts 17:28, it simply says, “For in him we live and move and have our being.”(NIV) Wow. What does that mean to you? I see it as He is our everything! If you are a Christian, Jesus the Messiah resides in you. What an awesome thought. You’re never alone – never without everything you need.
The devil, also known as the accuser, whispers those negative things in your ears. He whispers failure and hurt and self-pity. Right now I know you can you hear the particular things he whispers to you.
In John 16:33 Jesus said, “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
There it is in black and white. You’re going to have troubles long as you’re alive. But, the troubles of this world have been conquered by Christ. Hang on to the hem of His garment. Live and move and have your being in Him. The opportunity is there for the taking. Gwen~
