Deuteronomy 7:6 "For you are a holy people, who belong to the LORD your God. Of all the people on earth, the LORD your God has chosen you to be his own special treasure."
Do you realize how special you are? You are His holy people, His special treasure! How awesome is that? Of all the people in the world, God chose YOU! From the foundation of the earth you were on His mind. He designed you just the way you are with a specific purpose. You are an original. There is only one YOU! Don’t you forget that!
Romans 12:2 “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”
How do we change the way we act? We must first change the way we think. The way we think is a result of what we’ve chosen to meditate on. If you want to act the way God wants you to act, you must first learn to meditate on His thoughts by renewing your mind with His Word. Challenge yourself today to make it a habit to read and meditate on His Word on a daily basis and watch your life transform!
Ex 31:3 “And I have filled him with the spirit of God, with ability and intelligence, with knowledge, and all craftsmanship”
When God pronounced man’s creation He said He is creating something that resembles Him. That to me means that all of us have our unique gifting and talents. When you begin to appreciate that, you stop wasting time trying to be like the next person. When you begin to appreciate your strengths and apply them, you begin to blossom. I challenge you to appreciate your gifting because that is where your blessings lie.
Ezekiel 37:1 “The hand of the Lord was on me, and he brought me out by the Spirit of the Lord and set me in the middle of a valley; it was full of bones”
Although it all looked very dry in that valley and disarranged, when the Word was spoken, every bone obeyed and came to its place, but only when the Holy Spirit was spoken out over them was there a result. Speak into they dry bones this day that you, see and glorify the Lord.
James 1:5 "If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him."
You need the wisdom of God to be able to full fill the purpose and plan of God for your life. Godly wisdom is the key to being in the prefect will of God and experiencing supernatural provision in your life.
In Matt 9:37-38 Jesus said: “The harvest truly is plentiful, but the labourers are few. Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out labourers into His harvest.”
If Jesus could have reached everyone by himself, He would have. He chose to allow us to be His hands and feet to our generation. Who are you going to be Jesus to today?
1Peter 3:9 "Don’t repay evil for evil. Don’t retaliate with insults when people insult you. Instead, pay them back with a blessing. That is what God has called you to do, and he will bless you for it."
When you are in the middle of being falsely accused, when someone has deeply hurt you or let you down, the easier it is to retaliate than to do what Jesus did. The Word says to bless them. Pay them back with a blessing! Yes, it sounds unfare, but always remember how Jesus forgave you when you didn’t deserve it. If we take the “high road” by blessing others when they don’t deserve it, we will walk free from the bondage of offence.
Romans 3:20 (NKJ) “for by the law is the knowledge of sin.” Romans 7:7 “What shall we say then? Is the law sin? Certainly not! On the contrary, I would not have known sin except through the law.”
In (Romans 7:7) Paul continues: I had not known sin, but by the law.” The existence of God is nowhere defended by Scripture. The fact is taken as being obvious. Who He is and what He has done is clearly explained. Neither is there any doubt as to His sovereign authority over His creation or what our attitude should be towards Him as Creator He sets the rules. We have the responsibility to obey and rejoice in His goodness, or disobey and suffer His judgement.
Matthew 5:6 “Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness; for they shall be filled.”
Praise God, there is so much more of God and in God that He still wants us to partake of, its all available in Christ, through the Holy Spirit. Receive, live, and be that testimony that this world so needs.
Isaiah 54:17 “No weapon formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue which rises against you in judgement you shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is from Me,”says the Lord."
When the devil attacks you in some area of your life, don't sit around crying and begging God to save you. Don't let the powerhouse of God's protection go to waste. Refuse to be afraid of his weapon, because according to His Word, it cannot prosper. It IS your rightful heritage as a servant of the Lord.
