August 13th – Romans 12:12

Romans 12:12 

I absolutely love the book of Romans. It contains much wisdom from the apostle Paul for our daily walk with Jesus. And some of his best advice is the way to handle adversity that comes our way. Rejoice in hope, be patient in trials, and always pray. We can rejoice knowing that whatever problems we face, God has already won the battle and given us victory. And the hope we place in Him, results in much needed rest and peace for our troubled souls. (Ps. 62.5) Endurance and patience in all things, especially the bad, keeps us from giving up and giving in before we see the light God promises at the end of the tunnel. And being constant in prayer keeps our mind focused not on the problem, but the problem solver. For prayer is one of our greatest weapons against the schemes of the Enemy. It is our lifeline to God. And we know that each prayer is carried by our great Intercessor, Jesus Christ, who lays them at God’s throne of grace, and sees everyone answered!
