In the world you WILL have trials and tribulations, but, the Lord says to be of good cheer, because He has overcome the world (John 16:33). Isn’t it wonderful to know that we can have confidence in a God that He has His sympathetic and empathetic eye on us? So much so that God sent His son to endure and overcome EVERYTHING that we are to face in the world!
Paul tells us in Romans 8:32 that God spared not His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He WITH HIM ALSO freely give us all things? He’s given us the remedy for endurance in this wine press we call life! There can be no fine wine without the process of the wine press. In order to extract the goodness of the grape a process called pressing is implemented, and the great part is this: it gets better with time! That’s right! Fermentation is synonymous with adversity! Like any fine wine we are to get better with age! The longer you endure, the better you are!
Someone said that adversity builds character, but may I submit to you that adversity, like the wine press and the process of fermentation, doesn’t build character alone but also EXPOSES what we lack thereof! Time plus endurance makes us better, so that WE may be poured out as a drink offering to glorify God as a testimony of His loving kindness toward us!
Saints lets allow God to be God in our lives, and never fail to tell others “Please drink responsibly!” And last but not least remember, family…The Press is On!
… blessings Y’all!!
