Many fall away because they do not understand My ways. Circumstances may not fit their grid of how life should work. They judge Me if I do not answer according to their expectations. Many become bitter and fall away, or become disillusioned and lose hope, failing to trust in My goodness and faithfulness.
During these last days, the love of the great Body will grow cold. My Word is always your guidebook for living because I am the Author of life. You must trust in Me absolutely and completely in order to endure until the end. My grace is truly sufficient to live the overcoming life no matter what comes your way.
Instead of questioning why you are going through difficulties, declare that I am with you to heal, save and deliver. I am more concerned about your character than everything going the way you want it to. Trust in Me to bring you through whatever it is that you face. Remember that there are eternal rewards that will make everything in this life pale in comparison. And most of all, remember that I am your great reward!
Matthew 24:12-14 The Message (MSG)
11-12 “In the confusion, lying preachers will come forward and deceive a lot of people. For many others, the overwhelming spread of evil will do them in—nothing left of their love but a mound of ashes.
13-14 “Staying with it—that’s what God requires. Stay with it to the end. You won’t be sorry, and you’ll be saved. All during this time, the good news—the Message of the kingdom—will be preached all over the world, a witness staked out in every country. And then the end will come.
Proverbs 4:20-23 New Living Translation (NLT)
20 My child, pay attention to what I say. Listen carefully to my words.
21 Don’t lose sight of them. Let them penetrate deep into your heart,
22 for they bring life to those who find them, and healing to their whole body.
23 Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life.
