2 Thessalonians 3:3 But the Lord is faithful, who shall stablish you, and keep you from evil.
Tonight I was blessed to have my first preaching appointment, having announced my calling last week to my home church. I’m still in awe that God would see fit to use me for such a position. And I’m humbly grateful that He finds me useful for anything to further His Kingdom.
My text was mostly the third chapter of 2 Thessalonians. The above referenced verse brought a thought to mind, one I don’t think I had earlier. I remember once hearing a fellow say to an older gentleman “I don’t believe there really is a devil”. The older man replied “Try resisting him a while, then tell me you don’t believe he’s real”.
There’s no doubt that Satan is real. There’s also no doubt that he’s looking to trip each one of us up every chance, in divers ways, that he can. But, praise God, our Lord is faithful and all powerful. We may still have many battles to fight but Jesus has already secured the victory! Just hold fast to Him; He will never fail you.
May God bless you,
