“A Struggle Within - It's All About Love"

" “A Struggle Within - It's All About Love"

As a small child could you always feel the presence of God surrounding you? Was it a feeling of serenity, peace, joy and happiness! The feeling was indescribable! Were you afraid to tell anyone because you weren’t sure they would understand how you felt? The creation of God is phenomenal! Did you ever visualize God speaking through the wind in a still small voice telling you that He truly loved you and that you would experience His love through out your life? You knew it wasn’t going to be easy because of the challenges of life, yet God assured you that He would stay the coarse with you when things got tough. He promised that, “He would never leave you nor forsake you” because He knows there is a war going on between the flesh and spirit. Paul said it so well in, Roman 7:15- 17 “I don’t understand why I act the way I do. I don’t do what I know is right. I do the things I hate. Although I don’t do what I know is right, I agree that the Law is good. So I am not the one doing these evil things.” (CEV). As reading this passage I can to a conclusion that this “Struggle Within” was going to be a tedious journey because if Satan has his way, we would definitely lose every battle. The end result: We must strive to be like Jesus and this only comes through His love for us as we read His Word! We cannot win this battle alone but we can win it through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior because He is our Redeemer and He will always come to our rescue! This is why we say, “It’s All About Love.” (1 Corinthians Chapter 13!
