2 Cor. 5:20 - We are ambassadors of the Anointed One Who carry the message of Christ to the world, as though God were tenderly pleading with them directly through our (your) lips. - You and I are called to be "speakers of truth." We have been given an assignment from heaven. We are called to be a voice to a lost and dying world and to bring the message of hope, love, peace, and forgiveness to those who walk in darkness. Open your mouth and let the Gospel message flow out. God will fill your mouth with His words of life.
Heb. 3:12 TPB So search your hearts every day, my brothers and sisters, and make sure that none of you has evil or unbelief hiding within you. For it will lead you astray, and make you unresponsive to the Living God. - It is so important that you and I examine the condition of our heart on a daily basis. Why? God never changes in His love towards us. He is always extending His mercy and grace, but if we are not careful we can drift away from Him. Before long, you don't even notice that you are not as passionate and in love with Him as you used to be. Prov. 4:21 says, "So above ALL, guard the affections of your heart, for they affect all that you are." TPB
Titus 2:11- God's marvelous grace has manifested in Person, bringing salvation for everyone. - God's grace is available to every human being. It's available to the one who loves God just as much as it is to the one who hates Him. His grace was given before you and I ever were born, committed our first sin, or made the decision to serve Him. His grace is not based off of how good or bad we are. We can't earn it and we don't deserve it. All anyone is required to do is reach out and take it. It is a gift!
2 Cor. 9:10 - This Generous God Who supplies abundant seed for the farmer, which becomes bread for our meals, is even more extravagant toward you. First He supplies every need, plus more. Then He multiplies the seed as you sow it, so that harvest of your generosity will grow. - Are you faced with a financial need right now? Then ask God for seed money. This verse states that God will multiply our seed AS WE SOW IT. Ask God to show you where He wants you to sow and then trust Him to extravagantly multiply that seed to meet your every need.
Trina Hankins - God is on my side, for the BLOOD has been applied. Every need shall be supplied, and nothing shall be denied. So I enter into rest, and I know that I am blessed. I have passed the test, and I will get God's best. - Make this your confession today and rejoice in the fact that God is for you and will meet your every need.
Jn. 14:12 "I tell you this timeless truth: the person who follows Me in faith, believing in Me, will do the same mighty miracles that I do - even greater miracles than these...You probably remember the little song, "This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine..." You and I are called to manifest Jesus in the earth. We are to let our light shine for all to see. We have been given the same power, authority and ability, in Christ, to do the same works as He did. No matter who you are, or what your calling is in life, you carry the answers to a hurting world. The lost around you need to see the power of God demonstrated through you. Let your light shine today!
Acts 3:4,6 TPB Peter and John, looking straight into the eyes of the crippled man, said, "Look at us!"...Then Peter said, "I don't have money, but I'll give you this - by the POWER of the Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, stand up and walk!"- Peter knew the POWER within him. He understood that the same power that raised Christ from the dead now took up residency on the inside of him. You and I, as Believers, have been given this same power. We must learn to stop looking outwardly, begging God to do things for us, but begin to look to the power of God that is already in us. This same power will heal your body, change your circumstances, meet your needs, and deliver you from every addition and bondage.
Jn. 14:26 TPB But when the Father sends the Spirit of Holiness, the One like Me Who sets you free, He will teach you all things in My Name. And He will inspire you to remember every word that I've told you. - The Holy Spirit is the part of the God-head that reveals, declares, and transmits truth to us. He gives us revelation concerning the things of God, such as, His plan for our lives. He will reveal all we need to know about our future and if we will listen for His leading, He will guide us safely through each step of our day. He will bring to our remembrance the Word that we have studied and hidden in our heart. How awesome is that?
Eph. 1:7 Since we are NOW joined to Christ, we have been given the treasures of redemption by His blood - the total cancellation of our sins - all because of the cascading riches of His grace. - Have you ever seen the little Russian dolls were one is hidden inside the other? As you open each one another one appears. This is how our redemption is. It's not just our ticket to heaven, but it is loaded with hidden treasures. Treasures that belong to us right now. Through the shed blood of Jesus, and our union with Him, we now have access to everything He died to give us. Open God's Word each day and you will find one treasure after another.
