Summary: Our God who is not bound by space or time has closed every gap there is by sending Jesus, his only begotten Son to this fallen place; just so we'll have every resource we could possibly need in order to conquer all obstacles. Either we are for the Lord or we are not! It is as simple as that!

God did not make us to be a part of this demanding lifestyle, to struggle through it and to be swayed by its complexities, and to be buried eternally without even a trace of our spiritual identity. If this is what we think life is all about; we really don't know a thing about God's character and his supremacy. The truth is, God created us for eternal fellowship with him in heaven. Though we chose free will over that relationship; He continued to be a part of our lives until we decided we preferred having a king instead. He gave us kings. That still didn't do much for our ongoing complaining. We continued to disappoint him with our demands and disobedience. He gave us a way to his kingdom by sending us Jesus. According to the latest studies; there are more than four thousand religions, each claiming to be the only way for wordly substance and eternal peace.

A decision has to be made concerning our future. Either we are for the LORD or we are not! It is as simple as that. Once that decision has been considered firmly and with all sincerity; we are to rededicate ourselves to it on a daily basis until our last breath here on earth. Not because we might forget who we are in the LORD; but because the more dedicated we are in our walk with and toward the LORD, the more the enemy will want to target us. He sees our plan and determination as a threat. He even finds it appalling since the only reason he got kicked out of heaven was the fact that he wanted to be held equal to God if not higher. Isaiah 14:12-14 explains, "How you are fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! How you are cut down to the ground, You who weakened the nations! For you have said in your heart: 'I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God; I will also sit on the mount of the congregation On the farthest sides of the north; I will ascend above the heights of the clouds, I will be like the Most High.'"

So if and when are starting to feel frustrated because unexpected obstacles have been coming at us from all sorts of direction; we must remember that Satan is equally as frustrated with our walk. Instead of questioning why God hasn't done something to stop Satan's nonsense; we must believe that He is already sustaining us during Satan's attacks. 1 Peter 5:8 reads, "Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour."

Not that I want to give Satan so much more credit than that which he deserves; but we truly are not equipped to fight him on our own, without the help of the Holy Spirit. Though we are made in God's image and we possess all of his awesome attributes; we are still in Satan's territory. God did not make us for this world. He made us for eternal fellowship with him in heaven. And since we managed to claim our own free will; God will continue to honor our wish until our free will desires a relationship with him above all else.

Our God who is not bound by space and time closed every gap by placing his only begotten Son on this earth. And through him; He showed us what it takes to overcome every extreme and vile plot of the enemy just so we will have a physical understanding of his amazing love and provisions for us. Matthew 16:24 reads, "Then Jesus said to His disciples, "If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow."
