It is harder today to have a solid, scriptural marriage relationship than ever before. The competition for our attention is enormous. Materialism has caused many Christians to attempt to keep up with their neighbors. Many men have married their jobs—often at the expense of their marriage.
Jesus called the twelve who accompanied Him “disciples.” The word itself is derived from another word—“discipline.” A disciple is one disciplined in the ways and walk of the Master. We are called to a God-controlled life!
What—how—does God want me to think? Especially when I face trials, temptations and tests! He has given you and me His own heart and mind recorded in His love letter—the Bible. And since there is nothing more powerful than the Word of God, when we take time to memorize scripture verses, the Holy Spirit brings them to our remembrance when we need strength, wisdom and direction.
You will always face tests, trials and temptations. The Holy Spirit will use these memorized verses to make you an overcomer in every battle you must fight. Go to work. Don’t say “I can’t”. Philippians 4:13 says that you can!
