Good morning Lovelies. Father God, we bless Your holy name today! Thank You for your goodness, thank You for Your crown of steadfast love and mercy. We recognize all that You have done for us, all that You continue to do now, and all that You will do in the future. Thank You that Your plans for us are good and that You renew our strength. Thank You that You have redeemed our lives from the pit, You have forgiven our sin and healed all our disease. You are Restorer of the broken, Healer, and Redeemer. You are Father, You are Friend, slow to anger, and abounding in loving-kindness. You are Faithful, You are True, You are Powerful, You are forever with us. Father give us the courage to seek forgiveness. Remind us that confession is never a mistake; it frees us from the chains of the enemy. We know we cannot hide our hearts from You. Help us to let go of our bitterness and fear, and purify us with the knowledge that You have taken away every sin. In the Mighty Matchless name of Jesus. Amen.
We have all done things for which we are ashamed of, and we live in the tension of what we have been and what we want to be. We can let go of our past guilt and look forward to what God will help us become. Don’t dwell on your past. Instead, concentrate on your relationship with Him.
The reason that many of us are not happy with ourselves is because we choose to live beneath our privilege. Many of us have shackled the hands of God in our lives and settled for mediocrity instead of striving for excellence. God wants to really do some miraculous things in our lives, but because of our mentality, we forfeit those things. We have to get God out of the mental box we have placed Him in with our words and our minds. And we must allow Him to be great and mighty in our lives! Because great and mighty is our God!!!!
Your situation is not going to change until you change your mind! Your higher calling is not gonna be reached until you change the way you view God and His Power. You must let Him be God. This is not to say that He needs our help in being God, but some of us block our blessings by not acknowledging who He is and not believing in His Power. Stop saying that you won’t make it or you can’t do it. Stop saying that you are not worthy of it or you are not good enough! Stop allowing your situation to speak to you.
Just because you are in trouble does not mean that trouble is in you! Your present circumstances and situations are not inside of you, even though it may be happening to you. Just because you are being tried and tested does not mean that you caused the test or trial! You just come out of it better than before and God will still be God! You have all the potential in the world and God has all the power, therefore, you should be everything that you are capable of being those ingredients.
Your high calling is where your peace of mind is, where your joy is, and where your blessings are. You must get past this test so you can win the prize. Don’t take the same attitude you had before, make God know through you! Let God be God in your life and you will not only move closer to the prize but you will draw others to God!!!
“Press towards the mark of the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.’ Philippians 3:14
Live life, give people hope and share your heart, wisdom, and resources. Never place a period where God says there should be a comma.
As always peace and blessings, be safe. Take advantage of your opportunities but never allow your opportunities to take advantage of you. Remember God loves you and so do I. © 5.7.18
