Lord is faithful, and he will strengthen and protect you from the evil one 2 Thessalonians 3:3
Paul wrote to Thessalonians, when they had troubles and confusions. They had trails and persecutions all around them. What Paul taught them?
Already Defeated Adversary
Whom the Lord Jesus will overthrow with the breath of his mouth and destroy by the splendour of his coming 2 Thessalonians 2:8. Lord’ anointing comes when He breathes on us. Jesus before going back to heaven, He breathed on His disciples and they were filled with the Holy Spirit. God breathed into Adam and He had life. Surrender for Lord’ anointing. When anointing comes; enemy will be overthrown and Lord’ splendor will be displayed in our life.
God chose you to be saved through the sanctifying work of the Spirit 2 Thessalonians 2:13. We did not choose Him, He chose us first. He loved us before we knew Him. Then if you depend on Him, Lord will keep you Holy and will take you to Heaven with good testimony. He is the author and finisher of Faith. Why struggle, just surrender and trust for sanctified life.
Might share in the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ 2 Thessalonians 2:14 Jesus said as I overcame the world so will we do it. Jesus even said you will do greater things than Him. Lord asked us to be Holy as He is Holy. Word says we are blessed with all heavenly blessings. Lord wants us to be partners with God to share the nature and God’s glory. Jesus taught us to pray, thy kingdom come. Lord wants us His kingdom in our life. Why are you then downcast?
Peace that passes all understanding
His grace gave us eternal encouragement 2 Thessalonians 2:16. In every situation, even in tough times we will have joy of the Lord and peace of God. Depend on grace and stop looking out for solution. Continue to wait and work hard. Solution will also come at His time. But be at peace during the process.
Continue to do your work.
Encourage your hearts and strengthen you in every good deed and word 2 Thessalonians 2:17. Even if we are put down, blamed and not appreciated. Be of good spirit and work hard as if you are working for God. Let us work with the right attitude. Rewarder is the Lord.
Prayer: Lord, thank you for you are in control even in my tough situation. You are going to bless me through my trails. Troubles will be one of the ways I get the treasures of heaven. Amen.
