When I was a kid, I was small and most of the kids would pick on me until they found out that I had a big brother.
Life can pick on you, trails and tribulations. God did say take up your cross and follow me, He did say if I suffer you also will suffer.
2 Timothy 2:12 ` If we suffer, we shall also reign with him. The devil is a bully, but God is your big brother. The Bully is a liar and the father of all liars. He is a deceiver and destroyer. But he is no match for your big brother , your big brother is all powerful and all knowing, He is the true big brother, I use to get on my big brother last nerve, but he love me and care for me, he would give me his last, made sure I was not hungry even if he had to go hungry, he would keep my deepest and darkest secrets. When I was broke he gave me money, when I cried all night he was there with me. Now if an earthly brother can do that what about your heavenly BIG BROTHER. Our BIG BROTHER JESUS came into the world to destroy the works of the devil, our BIG BROTHER JESUS is the Author of our salvation. Not only did He suffer for us, He also arose victorious for us. It was for the joy set before Him He endured the cross that we may have eternal life not eternal death. 1 Cor. 15:55 ‘Where o death, is your victory? where, O death, is your sting? Because of BIG BROTHER JESUS we do not fear death and we do not fear life. Our Big brother came that we may have life and have life to the fullest. The devil came to steal, he wants to steal your joy, he wants you to be condemned by God, he wants you to feel guilty, he wants you to feel unworthy. Romans 8:1 ‘ There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus. Maybe you have been bullied by the devil picking on you, making you fight against yourself, when you sin and do something wrong ,make a mistake. Romans 3:23 ‘ For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. That is why BIG BROTHER JESUS came. This is a new day, a new year, The first day of the rest of your life. We must let the devil know that you have a BIG BRITHER and His name is Jesus. He will never leave me or forsake me. He restores my soul and when God restores you, it does not matter who is trying to bind you or who is fighting against you. All you need to know is that when God brings you up, no demon in hell can bring you down. I thank GOD for my BIG BROTHER JESUS. My BIG BROTHER CAN Wear so many hats, He can be whatever I need at the time I need it. My BIG BROTHER is my High Priest, He is my lawyer, why do I need a lawyer? because during times of tribulation, demons begin to attack your faith. Satan brings false accusations against you during the trial of your faith. Hebrews 4:14,15 ‘ Seeing then that we have a great High Priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities, but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. Our BIG BROTHER HAS BEEN THROUGH WHAT WE ARE GOING THROUGH.
The battle is not ours but our BIG BROTHER. This day, this year turn your battles over to your BIG BROTHER. He has heard your cry, we can not let the bully Satan deceive you into thinking that no one cares or that your BIG BROTHER has not heard you. God knows your moaning and your groaning . God knows what your tears mean when they well up in your eyes. If you call on Him, He will answer you. Trust your BIG BROTHER.
