Job 13:15 NKJV

15 Though He slay me, yet will I trust Him. Even so, I will defend my own ways before Him.

Struggles : We all know, no one is exempt from hassles, it’s how you deal with them that hold the resolutions to the event. Learn from your mistakes lest you repeat them and learn a harder lesson “lest something worse happen to you”.

Tenth Avenue North put part of this devotional together. Based on their song “The Struggle” There is one thing that I have learned that as a Christian, shortly after acknowledging a problem I may be having it goes away permanently unless I do the same dumb thing, in which case violent illness for 3 days kick in and there are times when I can not afford that either. Some of it is triggered by too many unlawfulness or ungodliness. Be careful who you believe or comply with daily.




Tenth Avenue North – The Struggle

There’s a wreckage,
There’s a fire
There’s a weakness in my love
There’s a hunger I can’t control
Lord, I falter and I fall down
Then I hold on to the chains
You broke When You came and saved my soul
Save my soul

(Chorus) Hallelujah
We are free to struggle
We’re not struggling to be free
Your blood bought and
Makes us children Children, drop your chains and sing

So why, Lord, do I still fail
Do I wear thin
Why do I still give in to temptation
On my own, I am bankrupt
I don’t trust You or take You at
Your word What You’ve promised


Hallelujah, death is overcome
And we are breathing
Hallelujah, our stone hearts become
Flesh that’s beating
Hallelujah, chains have been undone
And we are singing Hallelujah, the fire has begun
Can you feel it (X2)


Lest…The man lowered by his friends to get near enough to Jesus to be healed, not knowing it was his faith in Jesus that healed him, but Jesus saw him later and warned him about his conduct that had obviously been the reason for his illness.

John 5:8-13 NKJV
John 5:14 NKJV

8 Jesus said to him, “Rise, take up your bed and walk.”

9 And immediately the man was made well, took up his bed, and walked.

10 The Jews therefore said to him who was cured, “It is the Sabbath; it is not lawful for you to carry your bed.”

11 He answered them, “He who made me well said to me, ‘Take up your bed and walk.’ ”

12 Then they asked him, “Who is the Man who said to you, ‘Take up your bed and walk’?”

13 But the one who was healed did not know who it was, for Jesus had withdrawn, a multitude being in that place.

14 Afterward Jesus found him in the temple, and said to him, “See, you have been made well.

“Sin no more, lest a worse thing come upon you”.”

JESUS told the woman “go and sin no more”.

John 8:3-11 NKJV

3 Then the scribes and Pharisees brought to Him a woman caught in adultery. And when they had set her in the midst,4 they said to Him, “Teacher, this woman was caught in adultery, in the very act.5 Now Moses, in the law, commanded us that such should be stoned. But what do You say?”6 This they said, testing Him, that they might have something of which to accuse Him. But Jesus stooped down and wrote on the ground with His finger, as though He did not hear.7 So when they continued asking Him, He raised Himself up and said to them, “He who is without sin among you, let him throw a stone at her first.” 8 And again He stooped down and wrote on the ground.9 Then those who heard it, being convicted by their conscience, went out one by one, beginning with the oldest even to the last. And Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.10 When Jesus had raised Himself up and saw no one but the woman, He said to her, “Woman, where are those accusers of yours? Has no one condemned you?” 11 She said, “No one, Lord.” And Jesus said to her, “Neither do I condemn you; go and sin no more.”

Romans 8:18 NKJV

18 For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.
