A friend of mine sent me this powerful message that I wanted to share. It is hope for those who are struggling and feel like they will never recover. The truth is that Christ is more than enough to meet you where you are and take you to the peace of where He is! He can always make a way for you. Please read and be blessed.
Victory in Jesus
But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. (1 Cor. 15:57)
Thanks be to God for the victory that we have gained through Christ our Lord and Saviour Jesus. For all of history men and woman have feared death and hell and the grave. They have feared sickness and spirits and every kind of fear that lurks in the dark place and the recesses of our hearts and soul. This has been the bondage of humanity and it manifested itself in shackles and chains. When we consider what was done at Calvary. When we consider the complete and total victory of Jesus on the cross and His resurrection. When we consider the freedom that was loosed that day, the freedom that broke every chain and every shackle, should not our spirits soar with peace and joy and celebration? He who the Son sets free is free indeed. Totally liberated, a total and final work of victory on the cross of Christ.
Brothers and sisters are you walking in that freedom today? You have been called to walk in liberation and not bound by the shackles of this world, for in the world there is fear but in the Lord there is freedom from fear. In the world there are chains of corruption but in the Lord there is liberation and purity. There is not a single genuine saint that does not have the power within him to rise up and walk victoriously over every burden, every chain, every fear. It is what we are called to and it is what we have been equipped for. The same Spirit that abides in you is the Holy Spirit of the Living God who raised Jesus from the dead. It is the same Spirit that caused David to run at Goliath. It is the same Spirit that dwelt in the Hebrew children who spoke to the mightiest man in the world and told him that they would never bow down to his gods. It is a Spirit of Love and it is a Spirit of power and it is a Spirit of a sound mind.
Your destiny as a saint is to be an overcomer. One who can, by the power of God endure all things and yet glorify God. One who can be more that a conquerer in Christ. This is true in every walk of life and in every generation. It is true in our personal walks and corporately as the Body. It will be even more apparent in the near future as the forces of darkness descends upon the world at large. The gross darkness that is to assault the Church can only be combated in and by the power of the Holy Spirit who magnifies the Lord Jesus Christ in us. Corporately and personally the opportunity to walk in Christ and the victory He achieved for us at Calvary is increasing daily. To Him be the glory!!!

I seek first the kingdom of Christ because everything else in this world is perishing. All that I have is from God who is always faithful. I have worked hard all my life and will continue as long as God lends me breath. The mistakes and bad judgments I made in my life all stemmed from me trying to work things out by myself. I have learned the hard way that the victory over all of my problems and the answers to all of my desires lie solely in my Savior, Jesus Christ.
It is now my desire to share the words that God gives me to encourage and give hope to others who need the strength that only faith in Christ can give.
