Your Word for This Day: “More Than a Conqueror!”

Thursday, August 17, 2017

 “Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.” Romans 8:37

The Bible gives us a list of things that will come up against us and cause us at times to stumble and fall, but it also goes on to say that despite what we go through, we are more than a conqueror, not because of ourselves, but because of whose we are.

We belong to Jesus Christ.

And, because we belong to Him, His strength is available to us and His wisdom is our wisdom. As a child of God, His power is within you.  It lives in you and it was placed there to enable you to deal with the issues of life.

You are not alone.

You are not defeated.

You are not a failure.

You are a child of God and you are more than a conqueror.

Lift yourself up today and walk in the true knowledge of who you are.

 

Your Word for This Day: “Trained to Reign”

Tuesday, August 15, 2017 

Those who receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ. Romans 5:17

 Why do I go through so much difficulties?”

“Why can’t life be easier for me?”

“When will all of this come to an end?”

“Why don’t I have any friends?”

There are more questions than answers for many of us, and so, at times confusion reigns in our minds and affects our emotions. No one is exempt from the challenges of life, but know this: you will win the battle if you refuse to quit.

God is training you and equipping you to reign in the place He has destined for you.

There is purpose in what you go through.  There is a reason for the pain.  The principal thing is that in the end you will REIGN.

You are greater than you imagine and stronger than you look.

Know that God has you in His hands, it’s all written in His book.

You are being trained to reign.

 

Your Word for This Day: “Exceeding Abundantly”

Monday, August 14, 2017

“Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us.” Ephesians 3:20

God is able to do all things for you, and with you, but it will only be done according to the power that is at work in you.

The power at work in you is an exceeding great power.  It is the power of God that is very present in your life.

You do not have to go through life with a defeated mentality.  You do not have to always feel frustrated or even suicidal.

If you would tap into the power that is in you, you will be able to soar above the clouds of despair and depression.

Life is meant to be lived. 

Life is a beautiful gift from God.  Life is yours for the time that you are on earth.

Stop enduring life.  Connect with the power that is in you and begin to live.   Forget your mistakes and your yesterdays.  Declare that you have the exceeding abundant power of God living on the inside of you.  Run, jump, shout, do whatever you have to do and activate the power inside of you.

 

Your Word for This Day: “Stronger than That!”

Friday, August 11, 2017

“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might.” Ephesians 6:10

Do you realize that many people think that disciples of Christ are are very weak and inconsistent?

You hear all about people who say that they love God but do not live as people who actually do love God.

You, however, because you know who you are and whose you are, do not fall into that category.  You are stronger than that. 

You are wiser than that.  You are more focused than that.  You know who you are and you are on your way to fulfill your destiny.

Yes, the problems come.  Yes, the challenges are there.  Yes, the temptations are real. Yes, the pressures of life do exist. All of the above is real, but you are stronger than that.  You have One on your side who has enabled you to persist. You have God on the inside who causes you to triumph.

It may be all around you.  All the others may be still struggling with their identity and trying to discover who they really are, but you, you have begun the journey of self-discovery and you are stronger than that.

 

Your Word for This Day: “Doing All Things Well”

Tuesday, August 8, 2017

“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”  Philippians 4:13

God does all things well.

He made you well.

He gave you talents and abilities that enable you to do so many things.  And, it is up to us to discover exactly what we can do well and max that out to the best of our ability.  That is where our strength lies.  That is where we were wired by God to perform well.

We must be thankful for the things that we do well and also be thankful for the things that we do not do so well. Gratitude is the key. 

Remember, God does ALL things well.  Do what you can do to the best of your ability and bring glory to God.  Do not fall for the criticism of others whose job it is to make you feel inadequate about the things that you may not be able to do well. There are others who will do what you cannot do well.  God brings the balance to life.  Where you are weak, He has made others strong. 

Today, whatever you have to do, do it to the best of your ability as service unto God. He is empowering you and strengthening you. Do your part well and all will be well.

Your Word for This Day: “Living From Above”

Friday, August 4, 2017

“And raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus.” Ephesians 2:6

When was the last time you looked out on the world from a very high place? I am sure that you would agree with me that seeing things from a higher level is different from seeing things at a lower level. That is because the higher you go, the smaller and more insignificant the things on the ground level appear.

From an airplane’s view, the houses on the ground look tiny as compared to when you are on the ground.

So it is with life.  When you are on the level of the challenges they seem insurmountable and more than you can handle.  At times, they make you feel that you will never get through or even survive this season of your life.  But, could it be that it seems this way because you are looking at it from the ground level?

It’s time to change your position.  Look at it from above. 

How do you do that?  By looking at it through the word of God.  God’s word is the elevated position through which we must view life, no matter what stage of life you are in.

When you look at things from a high place, you will realize that it is indeed tiny and it will soon pass. Always remember, you are a conqueror through Christ and you can do all things through Him who gives you strength. Nothing can break you. This too will pass.

 

Your Word for This Day: “Accurate Representation”

Thursday, August 3, 2017 

“Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God.” 2 Corinthians 5:20 

Have you ever been chosen to represent your school, workplace, church or company at an event? Well, if so, you know that it is a great honour to do so. You become the face of whatever your are representing and how you conduct yourself will reflect on the organization.

When God made you, He made you to represent Him on the earth. 

When someone trusts you to represent them, you must not take that charge lightly. It is a great honour. And, to ensure that we represent God accurately,  He gave a manual to help us to do so.

How are you representing the One who made you and gave you your identity?

Be sure that you are bringing glory to Him by being the best that you can be, wherever you are, and doing whatever He has asked of you.

We can accurately represent the One who gave us life. He has given us His word and His Spirit to help us.

Let’s make the effort to be an accurate representation of our heavenly Father. It is worth the effort for it produces great blessings.
