Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet our inward man is being renewed day by day. For our light affliction, which is but for a moment (as seen from God’s eternity), is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, while we do not look at things which are seen but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal. 2 Corinthians 14-16(NASB)
Happy Wednesday! This is the day that the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it. Today I encourage you to take time out and reflect over your life, the last year and a half has been challenging times for all of us. We have witnessed and experienced, so much lost; and on many different levels. But God…he has been a strong tower in our life. One thing we can do is to continue to keep our faith and focus on God. Remember God is control. And He will and can do anything but fail. We must trust the process and the journey! God will give us exactly what we need on a daily basis!! Allow him to fill your cup until it overflows. As a sign of expectancy, open up your hands and receive what God has for you today. And remember what God has for you is for you! No devil can stop what he has destined for you! He will give us strength for the journey! God is stretching our faith, and he’s asking us whose account do we believe? Do we really believe that his word is true; and that HE is better than Allstate? We can depend on him! I know for myself God will do anything but fail! And for some of us, he’s maturing us, it’s important for us to KNOW who we are in Christ. And also to have a fluid prayer life, to seek God’s face first, prior to making any decisions, or moving in our flesh. Amen! In doing so we acknowledge the need for guidance and direction in our life. Remember the God we serve is a jealous God. And so many of us are guilty of putting everything before him. Think about the lessons that you learned during this past eighteen months, and remember God will use every ounce of pain, disappointment, and heart-ache to make you better and not bitter. Believe it or not there is a purpose for this pandemic. It’s greater than you and I put together. And in the end, God will be glorified! Every day focus on the goodness of God, and allow him to confirm in your Spirit what he’s trying to work out within you. Amen!
Spirit of the living God, father once again we come humbly before your throne, giving all thanks to you for blessing us to see another day. Truly there is none like you in all the earth. Lord forgive us for falling short of your glory and for our sins and iniquities. Lord help us to be the light in this dark world. Father we believe that you are the author and finisher of our faith! Lord thank you God because you promised to supply every need of ours according to your riches in glory in Christ Jesus. Thank you God that we believe that better days are coming! Father we thank for greater is he that is within us, than he that is of this world. We believe that no weapon that is formed against us, can, shall, or will prosper. Oh Lord we believe that our best is yet to come. Lord we thank you because we also believe that you are able to do exceedingly and abundantly above anything that we can ask or think. Thank you Lord that we will be triumphant over every obstacles that we are faced with on today. Allow us to set aside our own challenges, and be a blessing to someone else who can’t repay us. Father we pray that you will continue to keep us safe and protected from dangers seen and unseen. And we know that for those who love you, that all things are working together for the good, for those who are called according to your purpose. Help us to be obedient as you order our steps and give us guidance and direction. We are going to push, press, and praise our way through. Father we are thanking you for being the good shepherd and because of that; we shall not be in need or want for nothing. We pray that the power of your love will bring us closer together globally, as we take a stand against the devil! We bind up every plot, plan, and scheme of Satan. We declare and decree that we are our brother’s keeper! We declare and decree that are we are walking by faith and not by sight. For it’s in your darling son Jesus, we pray, give thanks, and say Amen!
