For the Weary Soliders of Christ Jesus

To those who find themselves constantly fighting error in their church and those who leave because of because it, I want to encourage you in the Lord. You are not alone. Many of your brothers and sisters are fighting the same battle. It is exhausting. Its disheartening. We want so badly to just rest when we enter the Lord's house on Sunday, don't we? And yet, we often times can't. Be encouraged. The time is drawing near. He is with us, leading us into victory. Don't loose heart, but continue to fight the good fight. Don't compromise because you are tired. Gear up! Re-group! Let's continue to stand for truth.

1Co 15:57 But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 58 Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain.

2Co 2:14 But thanks be to God, who in Christ always leads us in triumphal procession, and through us spreads the fragrance of the knowledge of him everywhere.

Heb 12:3 Consider him who endured from sinners such hostility against himself, so that you may not grow weary or fainthearted.

Isa 40:26 Lift up your eyes on high and see: who created these? He who brings out their host by number, calling them all by name, by the greatness of his might, and because he is strong in power not one is missing.
Isa 40:27 Why do you say, O Jacob, and speak, O Israel, "My way is hidden from the LORD, and my right is disregarded by my God"?
Isa 40:28 Have you not known? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He does not faint or grow weary; his understanding is unsearchable.
Isa 40:29 He gives power to the faint, and to him who has no might he increases strength.
Isa 40:30 Even youths shall faint and be weary, and young men shall fall exhausted;
Isa 40:31 but they who wait for the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.

Dear Surphing
Thanks for this encouragement. I always appreciate your inclusion of somuch scripture. These are hard days and it is easy to be discouraged but God is still working out His plan in terms of redemptive history. Grateful for His Grace, Wendy West
