We all experience our own hell as we walk through life. Some days are worse than others – some are completely free of it – while others seem to hold absolutely no relief. Winston Churchill spoke these words when in the midst of what seemed an unwinnable war, but they resonate for any circumstance we face in life.
Jesus, the true Son of God, Son of Man, faced off with the devil some two thousand years ago and defeated him. His power has no hold on us anymore as long as we put our faith in our Savior. We can even face the pangs of hell while here on earth and keep on pushing through with His help.
If you consider what our fate should have been, had Jesus not paid the ultimate price, the flames of damnation would have swallowed us up the minute we were born. Our God loves us too much to allow that to happen. He has clothed us in the fire proof garment of His Word and through it we can face the toughest challenges Satan throws our way.
We will face days that seem hopeless, times when life seems futile, hours when fear tempts us, minutes that suck the life out of us and seconds that frustrate us. With God’s armor, we have the protection necessary to make it through the fire.
Don’t ever give up. God as a plan for each second of our lives. He is in control and He loves us more than we deserve. With Him we can face even the scorching, flames of hell, because He has already won the victory.
