Summary: A message about the past belonging in the past.
The message for today is "Jesus Loves me just as I am"
As Bible believing Christians, we are to have confidence in the strength and ability of the Lord. In Him is only perfect peace. Nothing ever worries God or catches Him by surprise because our God is omniscient. The Bible declares that God knows the end from the beginning. There are many people in this world who choose to worry about situations in their life rather than giving the worry to the Lord and trusting in His wisdom to resolve that situation. The Prophet Jeremiah declared in Jeremiah 32:17 "Ah Lord GOD! Behold, Thou hast made the heaven and the earth by Thy great power and stretched out arm, and there is nothing too hard for Thee." Be encouraged to trust the Lord and know that in Him is perfect peace that surpasses all understanding. (Isaiah 46:9-10) (Psalm 56:9-13) (Phil. 4:6-7)
Napoleon was the greatest general of his day and one of the greatest of all time. He was also an astute politician with an unconquerable will to win. His goal was to rule the world and he seemed well on his way to achieving that goal.
History records how he boasted, "Russia next, then Britain, and Napoleon shall rule the world."
When leading his army en-route to conquer Russia, one tiny snowflake fell on Napoleon, ‘Then another, and another, and another, and they kept on falling until Napoleon’s proud army was reeling back, broken and defeated’ not by an enemy’s army nor even a single shot, but by a mass of tiny snowflakes.
Napoleon’s response? "God Almighty was too much for me."

The next time you are tempted to fear the enemy or worry about a situation in your life, remember what the scripture declares in Proverbs 18:10 "The name of the LORD is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and are safe." He is our shield and buckler and nothing by any means can harm God’s elect. Encourage yourself in the strength of the Lord and know that He is with you even in the midst of the storm.
Be strong and show your confidence in the God who created you and know that in the end Victory is promised to come.
We see things on television or hear it on the radio.
People say that this happens and that happens and nothing is going wrong since I gave my heart to the Lord.
The battle is ongoing. You still will have battles, hardship, and things that you will be changing in your lives.
You have to decide how to live your life.
As He wants or as you want.
You may have people say, you should do this or you should do that. I am not condeming them for doing this. The Lord, our God uses people to give us messages. Listen with your heart and pray about what He is showing you.
Alot of us when we are accepting the Lord as our Saviour don’t realize what He gives us.
He gives us eternal life but so much more.
He gives us the opportunity to do things that we never imagined
He gives us gifts we never thought we were good enough to have.
He gives us strength to overcome things
He gives us the opportunity to change things about ourselves that we never thought possible.
He changes us when we ask.
Did you hear me? When we ask.
Have you asked? or have you still felt not good enough.
If you look in the book of Psalms, you will find many things that you like to read
However here is;
Alot of us think that when we give our heart to the Lord we must be perfect or we will be perfect.
The Perfect Psalm
Perfect salvation: The Lord is my shepherd.
Perfect satisfaction: I shall not want.
Perfect rest: He maketh to lie down in green pastures.
Perfect refreshment: He leadeth me beside the still waters.
Perfect restoration: He restoreth my soul.
Perfect guidance: He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness.
Perfect protection: I will fear no evil.
Perfect company: Thou art with me.
Perfect Strength: Thy rod and staff comfort me
If you are just muddling along at what is going on in your life, you should continue to be muddling along because you are not getting it all.
Did you hear me. You are not getting it all.
I have seen many things that people are going through and It takes everything in me to not say,
" hey you are missing out on things."
But that is changing today.
If You live like a man, you will die like a man.
You will get nothing from Him.
If you have accepted the Lord as your personal saviour and you are just plugging along,
