Bible Ballistics: BBs #132   Keep ON Keeping ON???? How do we keep on keeping on when we just get so tired of it? Only one way!!! In learning to trust our God in all things–not easy but do!!! How? We’re enabled by His Spirit. Philippians 4:10-13, “But I rejoiced in the Lord greatly,

that now at the last your care of me hath flourished again; wherein ye were also careful, but ye lacked opportunity. 11 Not that I speak in respect of want:

for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am,

therewith to be content.

12 I know both how to be abased,

and I know how to abound:

every where and in all things I am instructed

both to be full

and to be hungry,

both to abound

and to suffer need.

13 I can do all things

through Christ which strengtheneth me.

How? “through Christ which strengtheneth me.” I must keep my trust and confidence in the one who sustains me. It’s not always easy, it’s not always painless—it’s often severe and even chronic. But I have to remember:

For I reckon that

the sufferings of this present time

are not worthy to be compared

with the glory

which shall be revealed in us.” Romans 8:18,

We keep our eyes on the eternal not the temporary. Keeping our eyes on Jesus not the world or the suffering. He has made us worthy—and royalty:

And they sung a new song, saying,

Thou art worthy to take the book,

and to open the seals thereof:

for thou wast slain,

and hast redeemed us to God

by thy blood

out of every kindred,

and tongue,

and people,

and nation;

10 And hast made us unto our God

kings and priests:

and we shall reign on the earth.

Revelation 5:9-10
