|One of those days--
1 Thes 5:18--In everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you (kjv).
Have you ever had "one of those days" when it seemed like everything you try to do blows up in your face? Well so do I! So far I've had three Monday's this week, and it's only Wednesday. It reminds me of the first message I preached. The scripture was taken from Amos 5:19:
As if a mad did flee from a lion, and bear met him; or went into the house, and leaned his hand on the wall, and a serpent bit him. It was talking about how the Day of the Lord will be when He comes. Well there have been times lately when I just knew that the day must be near. I don't suppose you ever have those, but if you do just remember what Paul said in 2 Cor 4:8-9 We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed; Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body. Trials may come and hardships may arise but ,God is still in control. 1 Cor 10:13 There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it. Some of the things we go through, we don't enjoy but we will be the stronger for going through them.
