AUGUST 21-27, 2016
“The very day I call for help, the tide of battle turns. My enemies flee! This one thing I know: God is for me! I am trusting God – oh, praise his promises! I am not afraid of anything mere man can do to me! Yes, praise his promises.” (Psalm 56:9-11 TLB)
I like to remind myself always of the words the Lord spoke to me as we entered into 2016. Otherwise, the events of life can make you forget. I found that whenever God says a thing, life immediately begins to happen to counter it. Our response to the happenings of life is so important. Do we let life negate it or do we stand armed with the word reminding life how it should happen.
It may take a while but as long as what you’re holding before life is your word from God, life will surely play it out. I have learnt that life will always bow to the word of God. That is why we must be armed, dressed up and armed with the full armour of God and our commitment to God’s word, no matter what! Are the events of life slowing you down? Are they preventing you from stepping out of the boat? Or are they clouding your view that you can almost not see where you’re going?
Dear Sister, God is for you! Nothing and no one can change that. God is for you! He has said that He will stand with you, by you and for you as a solid, immovable and unshakeable rock. He is also that rock to crush the enemy’s attacks. Even when you make a mistake, He will not bail out on you. He will stand with you there showing you how to make it right. He has determined not to let you go. God is not giving up on you, so you don’t give up on yourself. God will not let you down. You can trust Him with your life.
Though it may tarry for a while, don’t give up! Don’t look for solutions outside Jesus. He said to see possibilities. What are you seeing in your life, about your life? If you’re seeing it, know that He let you see it. No matter how impossible it may look, He has said they are our possibilities, and if we would trust in His love for us and acknowledge His presence and His power in us to make it happen, those possibilities will surely become our realities. Don’t let your beautiful possibilities fade into impossibilities or frustrating possibilities. No matter what life tries to make you believe, hang in there, holding on to that great possibility you see. Your God, who is for you will surely bring it to pass.
Be strong and take courage! I pray that the peace of God will dwell in your heart and your mind richly. I pray God will grant you this day the wisdom you require to make the right choices, the right decisions and the right judgement. God is helping you! He is helping you incredibly and granting you success today. In Jesus mighty name, Amen! Your life is beautiful! Go and enjoy it unapologetically!!
