As I understand It – 1 John 1:7 (NIV)

7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin.

For Your Consideration – Victory and Struggles

March 21, 2023

He waited patiently while we spun ourselves from one focus to the next without so much as a moment’s time to consider what had been done for us.
And He waited, knowing that we needed Him. And battles and struggles continued, as did our victory which we could not see

And our lack of all things needed for an abundant life also continued. And we struggled with why. It was clear in the Word that we had been blessed!

  • Genesis 1:28 (KJV)28And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

  • Isaiah 51:2 (KJV)2 Look unto Abraham your father, and unto Sarah that bare you: for I called him alone, and blessed him, and increased him.

  • Genesis 12:1-3 (KJV)1Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will shew thee: 2 And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: 3 And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.

We were there in them and were entitled to the same!

But the distraction of the struggles were too great — battles that would have been no more of a nuisance than removing our shoes and wiping the soil from our feet before entering our homes. But we dallied and became lost.
