Saturday, March 7th

For our present troubles are small and won’t last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever! So we don’t look at the troubles we can see now; rather, we fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen. For the things we see now will soon be gone, but the things we cannot see will last forever. 2 Corinthians 4:17-18

So humble yourselves under the mighty power of God, and at the right time he will lift you up in honor. Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you. Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour. Stand firm against him, and be strong in your faith. Remember that your family of believers all over the world is going through the same kind of suffering you are. In his kindness God called you to share in his eternal glory by means of Christ Jesus. So after you have suffered a little while, he will restore, support, and strengthen you, and he will place you on a firm foundation. All power to him forever! Amen. 1 Peter 5:6-11

We are learning that there are many amazing things that happen as we walk with God by faith in a world that has many present troubles. The most most amazing thing of all is that we are getting to know God intimately as he turns the suffering of troubles into avenues of grace in our lives. Living our lives fully for God is all about perpective and the passages above do a great job of bringing to us the perspective we desperately need so that the purposes God has for us in the midst of our "Lion's Den" trials are fully realized. We really can stand firm and be strong in our faith. We really can be a Daniel in a "Lion's Den" kind of world.

Lord, help me to humble myself before you and your mighty power. Thank you that your care for me is unending. Help me to give my worries and cares to you more fully than ever before. Help me to stand firm against the ememy of my soul. Thank you that I can count on you to lift me up in honor. I am grateful, Lord, that you retore, suport, strengthen, and place me on a firm foundation. All power to you forever! Amen.

With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright violation? My site has
a lot of exclusive content I've either authored myself or outsourced but
it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over
the web without my permission. Do you know any solutions to help stop content from being ripped off?
