Remember Your Remedy

“The anecdote to the devil’s temptation is the affirmation of the Father.” –Steven Furtick

The pastor who speaks against lust also faces the temptation, again and again.  The counselor who guides another through depression may also confront her own bouts.  Often what we struggle with most is what we preach best.  Try it.  It’s more real that way when you do; you have experience!  When you serve God even through sin and shame, our Father affirms you as His own.  Jesus reminds you He is your remedy.      

…If anyone serves, he should do it with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ… 1(Peter 4:11, NIV).
