John 1:12 (ESV): “But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God”
A son has a legal right to his father’s possessions as an inheritance. It is the same when we are born of God, when we also become partakers of the inheritance He gave us. Knowing who we are and who's we are will get us to walk in divine victory and fulfilment in all areas of our lives.
Ephesians 3:20 (KJV): “Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,”
God’s ability is beyond all we can fathom, so let us strip off all the limitations we had placed on Him and know that He is more than able; only believe, that’s the prerequisite to activate His ability.
1 John 5:5 (GNB): “Who can defeat the world? Only the person who believes that Jesus is the Son of God.”
There is only one requirement to being an overcomer in life, and that is to believe that Jesus is the Son of God, however things may be looking for you. Believing in Jesus as the Son of God is believing in the authenticity of what He has done for us.
2Timothy 1:7 (KJV): “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”
Power, love and a sound mind are essential components of effective Christianity. This morning understand that God gave these to us, as His children, that we may walk in victory and peace on a daily basis in everything we do.
Psalm 73:28 (CEV): “It is good for me to be near you. I choose you as my protector, and I will tell about your wonderful deeds.”
In the world where money, careers and human intellect is man’s security - choose God as your security and your life will be in safe and unfailing hands.
Psalm 30:6 (GNB): “I felt secure and said to myself, "I will never be defeated."”
Both defeat and victory in life begins in the mind; tell yourself this morning that you will never be defeated and watch yourself move into a position of a victor in everything in life.
John 15:7 (NLT) “But if you remain in me and my words remain in you, you may ask for anything you want, and it will be granted!”
God has given us the power to ask and to have whatever we want in life, but it all begins with having the Word in us. Choose to spend time in His word and your desires will transform into His desires, and your life will be fulfilled.
Isaiah 58:11a (NLT): “The Lord will guide you continually, giving you water when you are dry and restoring your strength”
If you are worn out and weary from all the pressures of life, press into Him, who will replenish you. God gives you a ‘new life’, and power to face every battle. Today, allow Him to replenish you, as you drink of His water which will give you strength to face another day.
Isaiah 51:12 (NLT): “I, yes I, am the One who comforts you. So why are you afraid of mere humans, who wither like grass and disappear?”
Fear only the One on High, for from Him comes your salvation and life. Give all your worries and fears to the Father who will fight on your behalf. Find comfort under His wings and see how He will set a table of honour before your enemies.
Jeremiah 30:17 (NLT): “I will give you back your health and heal your wounds”, says the Lord”
If you are sick in your body or mind or you have battle-scars of life - I urge you to stand on this promise of God, claim it and speak it. In Jesus there is healing, for He already paid for your sickness on the cross of Calvary!
