God has caused us to prosper in spite of difficult circumstances. Through all the ups and downs and stresses of life, God has made us fruitful. Genesis 40:51 “It is because God has made me fruitful in the land of my suffering.” In fact God often uses difficult circumstances to show us what we’re really made of and to cause us to come up higher but even more importantly for his glory. He teaches us that in this life we will have tribulation, count on it! But in the midst of all these things we are more than conquerors!
Romans 8:37 (NIV) says, “No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.” All these things refers to trials, whether persecutions, or famine, or death. Against these things, Paul says, “we are more than conquerors.” God shows us that He can bless us while we have the problem, while we have the affliction, while people are hating on us. Doesn’t matter who likes you and who doesn’t, you don’t need everybody liking you, only the right people! Amen!!
If God be for you he’s more than the whole world against you. Psalm 68:19 says, “Blessed be the Lord, who daily loads us with benefits, the God of our salvation!” And because God’s Word says so, believe that every day of your life is loaded with benefits. Every morning, when you get up, believe that it is a day that the Lord has made, and rejoice and be glad in it.

Happy Labor Day America! With an emphasis on Labor, America is truly a great country indeed! One thing I can say conclusively about Americans is We Work Hard! I read a book recently that talked about how weekends are no longer a period of rest because people are now working 7 days week. Being more interconnected through technology it seems the office is never closed. The constant messages and email alerts from our phones have us constantly working. If this is the case, you’re out of balance. Work is a blessing! It brings fulfillment it allows us to provide for our families. However, God meant for us to have rest! If he didn’t he wouldn’t have implemented sleep into our body’s system. God himself rested. Genesis 2:2-3 “And on the seventh day God ended His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had done.”
Enjoy the luxury of rest God intended for you to have. You’ve earned it. Although it’s an American holiday, you don’t have to live in America to labor and work hard! Happy Labor day to all the Working People of the world. Happy Labor Day to all SCW readers around the world. We love you.
