But God showed His great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners. Jesus, our Lord, was handed over to death because of our failures and was brought back to life so that we could receive God’s approval. You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly.
Romans 5:8, Romans 4:25, Romans 5:6
DO NOT FRUSTRATE THE GRACE OF GOD!
Do not treat the grace of God as meaningless. For if keeping the law could make us right with God, then there was no need for Christ to die. Is the law, therefore, opposed to the promises of God? Absolutely not! For if a law had been given that could impart life, then righteousness would certainly have come by the law.
Galatians 2:21, Galatians 3:21
Challenge every single impossibility idea or negative attitude that still lurks furtively in the back of your mind.
He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all–how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things?
So, what do you think? With God on our side like this, how can we lose? If God didn’t hesitate to put everything on the line for us, embracing our condition and exposing himself to the worst by sending his own Son, is there anything else he wouldn’t gladly and freely do for us? And who would dare tangle with God by messing with one of God’s chosen? Who would dare even to point a finger? The One who died for us—who was raised to life for us!—is in the presence of God at this very moment sticking up for us. Do you think anyone is going to be able to drive a wedge between us and Christ’s love for us? There is no way! Not trouble, not hard times, not hatred, not hunger, not homelessness, not bullying threats, not backstabbing, not even the worst sins listed in Scripture:
They kill us in cold blood because they hate you.
We’re sitting ducks; they pick us off one by one.
None of this fazes us because Jesus loves us. I’m absolutely convinced that nothing—nothing living or dead, angelic or demonic, today or tomorrow, high or low, thinkable or unthinkable—absolutely nothing can get between us and God’s love because of the way that Jesus our Master has embraced us.
God is RIGHT and does all things RIGHT. The Lord will PERFECT all concerning me.
IN EVERY SITUATION CHOOSE GOD.
Yet He knows the way I take; when He has tested me, I will come out like gold. “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
Job 23:10, Jeremiah 29:11
ONLY YOU ARE RIGHTEOUS, ONLY YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO RULE
God’s rightful place is seated on the throne of your heart as Lord and Savior.
No fear, no negative thinking or speaking! God is working everything out for good according to His riches in Christ Jesus in glory…in everything DO NOT COMPLAIN for this is the will of God.
If it tarries WAIT for it….
He is enlarging and stretching our capacity causing us to grow into maturity. The discipline is training for our walking in fulness of life with Him.
Father God forgive me for complaining —which is actually accusing You of not handling things rightly. You are all-knowing,
all-powerfully and more than enough. You are Lord. Help me to trust You in all things and restore the joy of my salvation!
Give me a steadfast heart…then…
I entrust all my life and all that it entails to Your hands, help me to grow in trusting obedience more each day. I give thanks
with a grateful heart and praise Your Holy Name for You do all things good. I bow in submission to Your perfect will and resist
every negative thought and word that the enemy tries to infect my heart with. I serve the Only righteous and living God. Amen.
For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
2 Timothy 1:7
I thank God–through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, with the mind I myself serve the law of God!
We have the mind of Christ and take no provision for the flesh
Lord help me to know You as a very present help in time of need and Your Holy Spirit as the one who leads and guides me
into all truth every step of the way for You are my life. Give me the confident blessing of the assurance of knowing Your
loving kindness fails not. Amen.
Nothing is impossible with God
I can do all things through Christ who strengths me.
The joy of the Lord is my strength
In His presence is fullness of joy.
The infilling abiding of Your love is poured out generously by Your Holy Spirit.
Those that trust in the Lord are never put to shame.
Wait I see on the Lord and He shall strengthen your heart.
Yet I am confident I will see the LORD’s goodness while I am here in the land of the living.
And the gates of hell shall not prevail against this Rock upon which I stand and who is the foundation that no man’s hands can lay. This is the church, Christ’s body that is being built by God the Master Builder.
As the Spirit of the Lord spoke through Jahaziel in 2 Chronicles 20:17,
“You won’t fight this battle. Instead, take your position, stand still, and see the victory of the Lord for you, Judah and Jerusalem. Don’t be frightened or terrified. Tomorrow go out to face them. The Lord is with you.”
Not one of God’s promises fails.
His love endures forever
His love never fails.
Nothing can separate us from the love of God…
Unless we choose to walk away from Him in rebellion or be led captive by deceit.
Amos 3:3 says “how can two walk together -going the same direction —unless they agree, are saying the same thing…
speaking the same language?” God is watching over His Word to bring it to pass as we walk in agreement with His Word for our lives.
1 Peter 3:10 says,
“He who would love life and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil and his lips from speaking deceit.”
I may not be able to perfectly tame my tongue, but I can choose my words. Jesus said it starts with what we put in our heart:
“For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks” (Matthew 12:34)
As God’s Word becomes a priority in my life, one benefit is the overflow from my heart to my mouth.
“He who has knowledge spares his words, and a man of understanding is of a calm spirit”
The Lord will rescue me from every evil deed, and will bring me safely to His heavenly kingdom; to Him be the glory forever and ever. Amen.
2 Timothy 4:18
Yours, O LORD, is the greatness, the power, the glory, the victory, and the majesty. Everything in the heavens and on earth is yours, O LORD, and this is your kingdom. We adore you as the one who is over all things.
1 Chronicles 29:11
Keep me from sinning. Do not let anyone gain control over me. Then I will be blameless, and I will be free from any great offense.
Don’t let evil conquer you, but conquer evil by doing good.
For sin will have no dominion over you, since you are not under law but under grace. In your anger do not sin. Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry, and do not give the devil a foothold.
Romans 6:14, Ephesians 4:26
No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it.
1 Corinthians 10:13
He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. No evil shall befall you, nor shall any plague come near your dwelling–— the place where you are at one with God. The Lord dwells within His people and He knows those who are His. Your heart is His sanctuary.
This is how we take our stand–
The Risen Christ, Faith’s Reality–The Risen Christ, Our Hope–Our Final Victory
We’re standing on the Rock and our names are on the Roll, we’re BELIEVERS.
He that comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him.
In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world
In “My Utmost For His Highest” -Oswald Chambers says,
“The same people who refused to talk about their adversities before they were saved often complain and worry after being born again because they have the wrong idea of what it means to live the life of a saint.
God does not give us overcoming life— He gives us life as we overcome. The strain of life is what builds our strength. If there is no strain, there will be no strength. Are you asking God to give you life, liberty, and joy? He cannot, unless you are willing to accept the strain. And once you face the strain, you will immediately get the strength. Overcome your own timidity and take the first step. Then God will give you nourishment— “To him who overcomes I will give to eat from the tree of life . . .” (Revelation 2:7). If you completely give of yourself physically, you become exhausted. But when you give of yourself spiritually, you get more strength. God never gives us strength for tomorrow, or for the next hour, but only for the strain of the moment. Our temptation is to face adversities from the standpoint of our own common sense. But a saint can “be of good cheer” even when seemingly defeated by adversities, because victory is absurdly impossible to everyone, except God.”
In Revelation 15:2-4, John gives witness to what he sees–
I saw something like a sea made of glass, the glass all shot through with fire. Carrying harps of God, triumphant over the Beast, its image, and the number of its name, the saved ones stood on the sea of glass. They sang the Song of Moses, servant of God; they sang the Song of the Lamb:
Mighty your acts and marvelous,
O God, the Sovereign-Strong!
Righteous your ways and true,
King of the nations!
Who can fail to fear you, God,
give glory to your Name?
Because you and you only are holy,
all nations will come and worship you,
because they see your judgments are right.
