“Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.”Ephesians 6:13
Knowing who you are enables you to stand under the pressures of life when they come to you. When you know that there is a purpose for your life, you are able to stand and with the help of God and others in your life, come through the problems successfully.
God who made you, has put within you the strength and the fortitude needed for every situation that will confront you.
Encourage yourself today.
There may be challenges in your home, on your job, with your health and even in your relationships… but know this today, you are stronger than you think. With God, you can get through it and come out looking better than when you went it.
But, in the midst of it all know that you were built to stand.
Greater is He that is inside of you than everything that you are going through.
“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.
“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.
“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.
“When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth, for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come.”John 16:13
We all have a unique sound. That voice inside of us, the one that talks in a tone that is special to us. That voice is the Spirit of God placed there by God. He has given us His Holy Spirit so that He can speak with us and lead us in the way that we should go.
If we would listen to the sound on the inside of us, we would develop the ability to understand ourselves more.
It is a special sound, a unique sound, a sound that only you could identify because it is your sound.
Do not get so caught up in the world that you fail to hear your sound. Do not lose yourself so deeply in other things, that the sound on the inside cannot get your attention.
That sound was placed there by your Creator because He knows that you would need it to guide you through life.
Connect with the sound of the voice of God. You will not regret it.
