📯One with a contrite heart has a willingness to change and detests sin. Their spirit breaks at the sense of doing something wrong that is against The LORD their GOD. They know they are weak and have inconsistencies and they know that they need The LORD and they desire to be greater for Him alone wanting nothing for themselves. He draws close to those with a contrite and broken spirit, but those with a hard heart He does despise. Remain broken and contrite before The LORD and you will watch Him work in your life as never before. Let not your heart be hardened! The hearts of mankind have grown hard and cold because of sin and lawlessness abounding in this world. Can’t you see it all around you? Don’t be like them. Don’t miss your chance! The righteous will suffer and endure many sorrows, so if you are walking in righteousness in this wicked world you will suffer many and great afflictions, but The LORD has made you a promise: MANY ARE THE AFFLICTIONS OF THE RIGHTEOUS BUT THE LORD SHALL DELIVER YOU FROM THEM ALL! He will not ever forsake you! Though this world shall persecute you and hate you for the cause of Christ, for this you are blessed and most favored of GOD above all. Remember this as you walk out there today!
📯Walk that righteous path and be strong in The LORD and in the power of His might! For it is through the fire of afflictions that our faith is born! It is through the suffering that we become as bold as a lion in Christ Jesus! It is in the highlands of afflictions where He builds His strongest warriors. The LORD never promised us we wouldn’t suffer… but He did promise us that He would be our Deliverer and Redeemer! Hallelujah to The LORD of Hosts, to the GOD of Angel Armies! It is worth it all because one day when this life is done and we stand before Him, He promises that He shall wipe away all of our tears! He bottles them all and keeps them in a jar and writes our name in the Book Of Remembrance and in the Book Of Tears. On that day those books shall be opened as you stand before Him, and many and great shall be your rewards, crowns, and jewels. You shall be granted to rule and reign with Him in the new earth and in the new heaven. All of the sufferings of this life are nothing compared to the joy that is to come!
He is worth it ALL!
