2 Timothy 3:16-17 (NKJV): “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.”
God’s Word is true, and is here to equip us to run the race – accurately, correctly, and in perfect stride. Keep holding firm to the truth that it will thoroughly equip you for every good work.
Jeremiah 1:9-10 (NKJV): “Then the LORD put forth His hand and touched my mouth, and the LORD said to me: ‘Behold, I have put My words in your mouth. See, I have this day set you over the nations and over the kingdoms, to root out and to pull down, to destroy and to throw down, to build and to plant.’”
God has called you to take territory. Stand your ground and declare today – never be dissuaded from it – that you are a weapon at His disposal, ready to take back what belongs to the kingdom of God.
Colossians 1:21-22 (NKJV): “And you, who once were alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now He has reconciled in the body of His flesh through death, to present you holy, and blameless, and above reproach in His sight.”
We all have a past; but in Christ we have a future. Always remember that, in Christ, we are holy, blameless and above reproach – irrespective of what may happen or what may not happen.
2 Timothy 1:8-9 (NKJV) "Therefore do not be ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me His prisoner, but share with me in the sufferings for the gospel according to the power of God, 9 who has saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace which was given to us in Christ Jesus before time began"
This life will have its obstacles and challenges; we may face persecution, ridicule and rejection but take great heart in knowing that God has called you and chosen you for a Holy calling and a life full of purpose.
Hebrews 4:14-15 (NKJV) "Seeing then that we have a great High Priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin."
We can overcome against our weaknesses and faults, because, greater is He that is in us than he that is in the world. He Overcame... we will Overcome!
Daniel 6:26 (NKJV) "I make a decree that in every dominion of my kingdom men must tremble and fear before the God of Daniel. For He is the living God, And steadfast forever; His kingdom is the one which shall not be destroyed, And His dominion shall endure to the end."
When we stand on God's Word; immovable, unshakeable and fully persuaded then the world has no choice but to take notice and acknowledge that there is only one true King and Lord over all.
Exodus 8:22-23 (NKJV) "And in that day I will set apart the land of Goshen, in which My people dwell, that no swarms of flies shall be there, in order that you may know that I am the LORD in the midst of the land. I will make a difference[a] between My people and your people. Tomorrow this sign shall be.”’
God has set us apart as people so that when calamity strikes, God's hand of protection is over us. Know and recognize that He is our strength and shield!
Isaiah 6:6-7 (NKJV): “Then one of the seraphim flew to me, having in his hand a live coal which he had taken with the tongs from the altar. And he touched my mouth with it, and said: ‘Behold, this has touched your lips; your iniquity is taken away, and your sin purged’.”
The fire from the altar of God's throne, has not only cleansed us but it has also set us on a path into our destinies. You may feel disqualified but take courage that God has purged you clean to be His messenger.
Romans 12:1-2 (NKJV): “I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.”
The only way we can walk in the victory that the Word of God promises us, is to live as the Word instructs us. Let us take charge, not bound by this world, and allow God's Word to do His work in our lives.
1 Peter 2:9 (NKJV): “But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvellous light”
You are not ordinary but extraordinary; not here by chance but chosen; and not common but royal. You are special, set apart and consecrated. You are part of God’s holy people called to be agents of change and you carry the manifest love and power of our Heavenly Father.
