Hey guys and welcome back to The Faith Filled Friends. We are so glad to have you join us today. The team here on The Faith Filled Friends have been working hard to produce high quality devotions everyday. Today’s devotion will question and challenge you, don’t feel like that is a bad thing. And today, we will be sharing the fantastic MercyMe song with all of you, “Greater”. So let’s jump straight into it.
What do you do when hard times hit? What do you do when you feel overwhelmed by temptation? Think about these questions.
Did your answer sound anything like, “try harder”, or “try to sin less”, or even “worship harder at church”. These are almost default tactics when things don’t go our way. We try to be something more by giving more of ourselves, but this is not what God says to us. He says:
““Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.”” And continues on by saying, “”Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”” Matthew 11:28-30
God hasn’t called us to be alone and try to solve our problems alone. Jesus gave us the Holy Spirit who now dwells in each and everyone of us. This life isn’t easy but God is always with us and He will give you rest. The devil and all the forces in hell cannot stand against the Holy Spirit inside each of us. So when temptations and pain strikes, we need to run to God for He is our provider and our shield.
1 John 4:4
“You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.”
Let Jesus take your burdens and your pain, for when we are weak, He is strong.
