“The Lord is with you, you mighty man of valor!” Judges 6:12, NKJV
The scripture says, “God has purposed it, who can annul?” That’s saying, “What God has already set up, who can stop it?” Don’t be concerned about who doesn’t like you or how big your challenges are. Stop telling yourself that you can’t achieve your goals. It’s already set up, and you’re on time.
If you’ll keep honoring God, being your best, what God has set up will find you. You won’t have to go after it; it will come after you.
Many people feel inadequate to do anything for God. But God doesn’t see you as inadequate. He sees you as complete, lacking nothing in Him!
You may feel that you’re average. You may think you’re ordinary, but God sees you as a champion. He believes in you and regards you as a strong, courageous, successful, overcoming person. You may not see yourself that way, but that doesn’t change God’s image of you.
God still sees you exactly as His Word describes you. Dare to start seeing yourself as God sees you—as a victor!
When you recognize what God has done, you don’t take for granted that it was His hand all through your life that got you to where you are today. Then, it’s easy to stay grateful. It’s easy to thank Him.
It’s easy to go to church. It’s easy to be good to others. Recognize that where you are in life is because of the mercy of God. Give thanks every day.
God has the final say. He has not brought you this far to leave you. He’s shown you His goodness, His favor, and His mercy in the past, and He’ll do it again in the future.
Our loving God is a God of restoration. If you are in the midst of a struggle, God has not left you and He never will.
God has great things waiting for you on the other side of this dark day. Hold on, child of God, and know that even while people try to tear you down, God is building you up. Make the decision that today will be a great day in Jesus’ honor. Regardless of what you perceive in the natural, God is working to make you holy and acceptable to Him in the supernatural.
The key to living a life filled with God’s blessings and favor is to keep God in first place in your life. When you put God first and make it your highest priority to please Him, you can expect a blessed, fulfilled life.
When you go through the day with a smile, you are rejoicing. By having a cheerful countenance, being friendly and fun to be around, you are giving praise to God.
PRAYER FOR TODAY: Father, thank You for giving me a spirit of boldness. Thank you for bestowing upon me a spirit of strength, love, and clarity of thought. I give myself over to You. I give over my heart, mind, and entire self. Have Your way in me and lead me into Your victory in Jesus’ name. Amen.
