Have you ever dreaded the day ahead of you? Be encouraged!

Have you ever felt like you couldn't face the day? It put you in a bad
mood to think that you would have to put up with the same things
again?

I have too. What helps me is to remember Philippians 2:5 that says,
"Let this mind be in you that was also in Christ Jesus." ie our
attitude and mindset should be the same as that of Christ Jesus.
Surely in the flesh there were times He didn't want to face his day
either.

People plotting against him, trying to trap him, Plotted against in
the religious commmunity as well as the political. His own people were
his enemies - yet He was always faithful to His calling. God will help
us obey His command in 2 Corinthians 10:5 - we must take every thought
captive to the obedience of Jesus Christ and Col 3:23 - whatever we
do, we must do is as unto the Lord because it is Christ that we are
serving.

Next time you feel like you can't face the day - remember it is not
your family, friends, co-workers, or even your boss you are working
for but Christ Jesus Himself and the Bible promises that God Himself
will give you your reward. Amen!

Savor your Savior!
