Encouragement For Today July 17, 2018 From the Bible - John 16:33



These things I have spoken unto you, that in Me you may have peace.  In the world you will have tribulation:  but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

Your Attitude Is Not Determined By Your Handicaps Or Your Circumstances!
People say, ”Oh, I can’t do that.”  Or is it that you mean, “I won’t do that”.
 
Some people say, “I can’t do that, I’m handicapped.”   Helen Keller was blind and deaf, but she graduated from college with honors, wrote books and became a well known speaker.  My children have heard me say that so many times that they hate Helen Keller.
It does no good to say, “If my circumstances would change, I would change.”  Wrong.  If you’ll change, it doesn’t matter what your circumstances are.  You choose your attitude, and your attitude determines your success.
Look at the circumstances of Jesus’ life.  His birth was considered illegitimate.  He lived in scandal every moment of his life.  Rome said he was a traitor.  The religious leaders said he was a heretic.  He was crucified between two thieves and buried in a borrowed grave.  When he came out of the grave, he didn’t go to his disciples and say, “Run for your lives I never dreamed it would be like this.”
Jesus says, “you will have tribulation:  but be of good cheer…” He did not say that from ivory towered walls of security.  He said it the night before he was to be slaughtered as the Lamb of God on Mt. Calvary.
I am here to tell you today that God is greater than your circumstances…however bad it may seem, God is greater than any crisis you’re facing.  Lift up your heads and rejoice.  You are more than a conqueror!
