(Romans 12:1-8; 1 Corinthians 6:18-20)Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? If any man defiles the temple of God, he shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple are you?
1 Peter 5:10;1 Peter 5:10; And God of all grace, who called you to His eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast.
Strengthen, and establish you.
At times when you set down to rest and you begin to think about your life, do you sometimes feel that you are being torn down by your troubles instead of being built up by God? Well, believe it or not, God and your troubles are both at work, one to build you up and the other to tear you down. There is always that spiritual warfare going on within us against the spiritual nature of God that is fortifying us.
The pressures in our lives are the battle going on between the two.,but rest assured that the battle belongs to God and He will remove those waring traits and replace them with peaceful qualities that are so much better. God is restoring us with His wisdom, confirming His purpose in our lives, strengthening us with His power and creating an eternal nature within us.
Though things may seem hopeless now rest in the promise that God has a far better life planned for us then what we are going through right now. When we look around at the way things are and what we hear daily on the news things can look very hopeless to some people, but good always wins out over evil, so keep the faith and rest in the assurance that we are not alone. God promised us His Spirit that lives within each of us and that is what gets us through the hard times.
