Face Your Overwhelming Challenges with Christ Helping You

Good morning, Happy Souls!

Are you feeling motivated this morning?

I know that I certainly am.

Bill Keller has written another terrific
devotional that I want to share with you.

Everyone has big problems sometimes.
The problems can easily become too big
to bear. For billionaires, the scope
of their wealth can increase the size
of their burdens.

But we have a Saviour who is always
there to share our burdens . . . so
that we can carry them.

The devotional begins below:

It is easy to quit, it takes courage to
fight! As you can imagine, the vast
majority of the 40,000+ emails for
prayer we get every single day here
at Liveprayer are from people fighting
the battles of this life. Relationship
problems, health issues, financial
concerns, some sort of bondage, the
death of someone they loved, legal
cases, employment and school issues,
the entire gamut of battles we all
face during our journey through this
life. Most people are looking to God
for their hope and strength knowing that
He is their answer. However, many come
ready to give up, to quit.

My friend, let me share a word with you
this morning that I pray will encourage
you as you fight your daily battles. I
realize guys like Tony Robbins and the
self-help gurus make millions to tell
people what I am about to share with you
for free. It may seem like a very
simple and basic word, but when you
fully comprehend it, it can be the
difference between you living a
defeated life or living a life of

*When you face the battles of this life,
it is easy to quit. It takes no skill
to give up. The spineless and gutless
run. Cowards are people who when faced
with life's challenges, let fear
paralyze them into doing nothing. When
you face the battles of this life, it
takes courage to fight. It takes guts to
face the battles life brings our way and
not back down. VICTORY ONLY COMES TO

The key is knowing that our strength to
fight comes from the Lord. It is our
faith in Christ that gives us the ability
to stand and fight the battles of this
life. When Goliath was taunting the
armies of Israel, the mighty men of
Israel's army cowered in their tents as
the heathen giant blasphemed God. They
simply lacked the faith in God to fight
this Philistine warrior. David, a mere
shepherd boy did not hesitate for a
second to take on Goliath. He had no
doubt that he would win because the Lord
was with him. David had FAITH that God
would lead him to victory and armed with
that faith, he went out and slew the

How many of you today cower in your
homes in the face of great battles that
need to be fought? Others who are
facing those exact same battles, are
out there living in victory because
they exercised their faith in Christ!
You see, what it boils down to is having
the faith in the Lord that He will help
you fight and get victory over whatever
battles life may throw your way. Jesus
told His disciples that in this world
they would have trials and tribulations.
He then went on to tell them to "be of
good cheer" because He had already
overcome this world. What that means is
that as you put your hope and faith in
Christ, He will give you the strenght to
stand and fight the battles of life and
be victorious.

I love you and care about you so much.
I know many of you are facing great
battles in your life. I am honored that
God has allowed me to be here each day
to stand with you and help encourage you
to not quit, but keep fighting. My word
for you today is that there is VICTORY
IN JESUS! He is your hope, He is your
strength, and when you trust the Lord,
He will lead you to victory over whatever
battle you may have to face during this
life. When you have Christ, the ONLY way
to lose is to quit.

I will be praying for you today.
Praying that you will be encouraged to
keep pressing on in fighting the battles
you are facing today and will face
tomorrow. If you know Christ as your
Savior, He will give you the strength
to not only stand and fight, but to be
victorious. It is easy to quit, it
takes courage to fight. "Be on your
guard; stand firm in the faith; be men
of courage; be strong." (1 Corinthians
16:13 NIV)

In His love and service,
Your friend and brother in Christ,
Bill Keller
