Because He himself was tested through what He suffered, He is able to help those who are being tested

Wig’s Word of God Today 1-12-2011

Because He himself was tested through what He suffered, He is able to help those who are being tested. Hebrews 2:18

Hebrews 2:14-18, Psalm 105:1-2, 3-4, 6-7, 8-9 & Mark 1:29-39
 
We all live with temptation each and every day allowing ourselves to learn how to be faithful to God’s plan in our lives. It is something we cannot escape giving us courage to accomplish a Divine Plan laid out for us since the beginning of time. There will be trials and tribulations for each of us in our own special way designed by God through an ever functioning presence He allows to take place by His amazing grace. Every person experiences this temptation; your pastors, your parents, saints of all eternity and yes, even Jesus. These temptations are something we will face because simply put; we are human. It’s how we act on this temptation that defines our lives.
 
Jesus took the time we learn in the Bible to separate Himself and pray often. “Rising very early before dawn, He left and went off to a deserted place, where He prayed.” Mark 1:35 A trait we must learn to follow ourselves and something I commit myself to each and every day. No matter what I am experiencing in my life through temptation and disappointments, I get up early every day at 4:44 AM to get closer to God through studying His Word, praying and proclaiming. Prayerful living can overcome any type of temptation by seeking God’s wisdom in His Word and surrendering it all to Christ Jesus. We must learn that loving our love of Christ requires us to experience temptation to live a complete life in God’s Will. I’ve heard it said many times in my life: It’s not how you start the race, it’s how you finish it.
 
And so we pray: Heavenly Father, today we pray unceasingly for Jhaysonn’s cure and funding of treatment Medicaid has stopped paying for. We pray people will go to this link Lord and donate if they can to help this young seek a cure for his cancer: www.jhaysonnscure.com. We pray Lord to overcome temptation by Your love to gudide us to be faithful to Your Word. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
 
God Bless,

Romans 8:28
 
His Purpose Given Each and Every Day
 
Humanity’s children share His blood
Flesh of man from Heaven up above
Destroying our fear of the Evil One
Temptation thwarted by God’s Only Son
 
He suffered all kinds of evil for us
Never looking to run in disgust
Faithful High Priest before God
Like us He learned to give total trust
 
Glory rests in His Holy Name
We learn not to seek our own fame
To trust and abide by Christ’s Truth
Temptation oath humanity’s proof
 
A town gathers at His door
He healed many and made the devil poor
Retreating often to be alone and pray
His purpose given each and every day

About Thomas Joe Cruz-Wiggins

My name is Thomas Joe Cruz-Wiggins. I first recognize Christ as my Savior in all things. I am married to my best friend and Soul-Mate in Christ, Antonia Cruz-Wiggins. I am a University of Florida graduate of Public Relations, a US Navy Veteran and a Montessori Elementary School Teacher. I love life and God's help of living it! I follow the Light of Christ in everything I do! I love writing poetry about the Lord and I create a new poem from each Scripture I discern in my daily mediations. You can almost follow the poem by looking at the readings for each day. I started sharing this small yet personal scripture study four years ago when one day I was reading the bible and the Holy Spirit moved me to share the verse with a group of about 40 Christian Men in my Emmaus Ministry who get together weekly to celebrate the Lord and talk about His Truth. Since then the number of people I share my study with has grown to over 650. I enjoy an open loving dialog about anything I write and I have strived to write what I know the Lord wants me to share steering clear of offending anyone’s spiritual beliefs because I share my work with people I meet in public when I strike up a conversation about the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It took almost 2 years to begin writing what the Holy Spirit leads me to say. I believe that all Christians must unite as One Body of Christ’s Love to accomplish the joy of living with love, honor and respect. I reach out to Humanity to share His Salvation be it Baptist, Catholic, Protestant, Episcopal or any other religion or belief. I seek to mirror His Compassion, His Simpleness, His Charity and His Love. While I am Catholic, I believe we must all unite in the Lord to become One Body in Christ to bring our children back to The Church. I am humbled to share my study with you. Please feel free to comment any time. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is my Joy because I am a Disciple of His Truth. I am honored to share my Bible study with anyone you may recommend. As always, I remain, Yours in Christ, Thomas Joe Cruz-Wiggins
