Scripture of the Day - March 14, 2012

Ephesians 5:18 And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;
19 Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord;
20 Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;

Often times when people want to escape the troubles in life they reach for alcohol to drown their sorrows but it doesn't help. It only compounds the problem. In fact, nothing in this world will help you escape the troubles of life. If you truly want to escape the troubles of life be filled with the Spirit. Don't focus and dwell on your troubles, rather focus on God and focus on His word. Thank God even in the hard times; for it's the hard times that show us what we're made of. Draw near to Him and He will see you through anything.

Three Hebrew young men were thrown into a fiery furnace for not bowing to the King's statue. They stood against the status quo of the day and stayed focused on God. They didn't fixate on their impending doom, no, they trusted in their God and their God stayed with them in the fire and delivered them out of the fire. 

God will stay with you through whatever you are going through if you stay with Him. He will deliver you out of your troubles if you keep your focus on Him. Look ahead to the victory! Thank Him always!
