Father, I thank You that Your Word is always powerful and it never loses its power. Hallelujah! And according to Your Word, You are the same - yesterday, today, and forevermore. I thank You, Lord. If I'm down in the valley, You are with me. And when I'm on the mountaintop, You're with me. Praise God! Wherever I am, You're always with me. According to Ecclesiastes 1:9, there is nothing new under the sun. And the thing that has been is what will be again. And that which has been done will be done again. In other words, my brothers and sisters, we all have been going through some rough times, and as Christians we are getting more persecuted. However, the Lord is saying that people have always gone through trials, and Kingdom children have always suffered violence. And this is nothing new. But one thing that has not changed is His Word. And the way we handle these trials is the same way that God's children have always handled them, and that's with the Word of God. O Lord, help us to understand that we have a choice. We do not have to take the junk that satan throws at us. You can fight like the soldiers and warriors that you are. The Word of God becomes your equalizer. Equalizer means a person or thing that equalizes, especially a device to counterbalance opposing forces. God's Word will counterbalance, counterweigh or equalize anything that you need for it to do. Hallelujah. Maybe things have changed, but praise God, God's Word never changes and never will. No, it is just as powerful as it has ever been. Praise God! In the name of Jesus, Amen, and amen.
