He answered, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.'”
Today most of the born again believers get worried about their spiritual life whenever they see the circumstances opposite of their expectations. Then they start focusing deeply to their conditions; the mess of their life makes them totally out of control in their emotions. This is time when many born-again believers give an open opportunity to devil; that always is searching for this kind of moments. In such environments the believers lose their strength and courage and get discouraged and even they search the target to blame for their bad condition.
But Bible doesn’t teach to do so because Lord Jesus Christ taught that we are not to lose our peace, we are not to get trouble because of the circumstances around, 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.”
This is Jesus’ promise that He has overcome this world. In our bad situation our very first responsibility is to dig ourselves into the word of God. The Bible says that Jesus is the living word of God. When we read and believe the word of our Lord God beyond our circumstances then Jesus starts helping us through God’s word. The word of God is the strength of God and peace of God we should remember that whenever we lose our peace this the clear indication that we are walking according to the word of God.
The word of God can’t work when we don’t give proper time to study and to meditate upon it. We are to make intimate relationship with God. The Bible indicates that it is not possible that if we are in this world and this will not come against us; surely it shall be coming against us many times but when we would be have the deep understanding of God’s word and God’s promises then ultimately we would be have a strong relationship with God then the power of His word means Jesus Christ would help us being a peace inside us to fight against our bad condition and to help our faith to believe His promises. God’s promises are for our good not for our bad. A born-again being is a spiritual being so being a spiritual person he has to follow the victory do’s and don’ts of God’s word because God’s word is spiritual and it changes the spiritual atmosphere. The spiritual atmosphere is the primarily part our believer’s life what is good in spiritual real; surely it shall be good in physical realm as well. So, from today start walking according to God’s word to be in intimate relationship with God so that we could walk in permanent success for every kind of situation given by God.
