All of us have had heartache, sorrow, pain, confusing times, and loss. They are not supposed to tear us down… but build us up. We GAIN STRENGTH by wallking through such times.
Think of a mountain climber…. it takes muscles to climb to the summit. The same goes with spiritual battles. We need to build up our spiritual muscles of faith to ascend the mountain of God. Looking forward to reaching the summit and enjoying the view. How about you??
“But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit, 21 keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.” Jude 1:20 (NKJV)
