Gal. 6:9 And don't allow yourselves to be weary or disheartened in planting good seeds, for the season of reaping the wonderful harvest you've planted is coming! - Have you been investing time, money, energy, and emotional seed into someone or something? If you know that where you have been investing is a "God Thing" then you can be sure that your harvest is coming. Many times we are looking for an immediate return on our sowing, but harvest takes time. God sees your endeavors and He will reward you. Hang in there, your harvest is coming!
Ps. 27:1 The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? - This Scripture has one common theme, its the Lord Who is the Supplier of LIGHT(wisdom, direction, understanding) SALVATION(deliverance, preservation, deliverance from danger, protection, health, liberty, restoration, nothing missing, nothing lacking, nothing broken) and STRENGTH. Make the Lord your priority, your go to, your all in all. He has and is all you need!
2 Cor. 4:13 Yet we have the same spirit of faith as he who wrote, I have believed and therefore I have spoken. We too believe and therefore we speak.- Speaking words of faith, on a consistent basis, will release the power that is contained within those words into your circumstances. Words of faith charge the very atmosphere with possibilities. The impossible becomes possible. The negative energy produced from grumbling and complaining delays your breakthrough. Like those who drill for oil, consistent pressure of the drill, brings breakthrough and the oil gushes forth.
Rm. 10:11 - For the Scriptures encourage us with these words: Everyone who believes in Him will never be disappointed."- We all believe in something and someone. Many times our belief in certain individuals, our job, our abilities fail us. They come up short. They disappoint. If our believing is only based on who and what we can touch with our five senses then we will be disappointed. Believe in Him! Our Faithful Father will never fail, never tease, never pretend, never condemn, never change His mind about you. He is a safe and sure place to put your trust.
1 Jn. 4:7 Those who are loved by God, let His love continually pour from you to one another, because God is love. - God, has lavished His great love upon the world. Sadly, the eyes of humanity has been blinded by the enemy. God's desire is that His children, you and I, allow this endless love to pour through us to those around us. This love is far reaching and when we allow it to pour through us, even to the most unlovely, it can melt the hardest of hearts. Your challenge today is to pour on the love!
Matt. 11:28 - Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy-laden and overburdened, and I will cause you to rest. I will ease and relieve and refresh your souls. - While working in the hospital, I attended to patients who at times had great difficulty breathing. They labored to catch their next breath. It can be a very frightening thing. Often, we can become so weighed down with life's problems, that it's hard to catch our breath. Can you hear the Masters voice saying, "Come to Me!" He's the One with the answers. He's the One with the solution, one that you may never think of. He has the power to bring peace in the storm, rest for your mind, will, and emotions, and exactly the right answer for your situation. Go to Him!
1 Jn. 3:11- The beautiful message you've heard right from the start is that we should walk in SELF-SACRIFICING LOVE towards one another. - "SELF" always wants to sit on the throne of our hearts. It wants what it wants and it wants it now, no matter who it hurts. Jesus shows us a better way, LOVE! His very life is a picture of what it means to put others first, even to the point of suffering a brutal death. He did that for you and me. He had committed no crime, no sin, yet He willingly sacrificed His life for all of humanity. This same LOVE is in you! It's time for you and I to release it by putting others first.
Jm. 2:17 "Faith alone without works is dead." - Motivational speaker and success coach Jack Canfield made this statement, "The one thing that separates winners from losers more than anything else is winners take action." What has God been prompting you to take action towards? What have you been postponing, delaying, ignoring, and stuffing that God has told you to do? God wants us to be a success in every area of our lives but He waits on us to take action. TPT says, "So then faith that doesn't involve action is phony (dead, fruitless). What are you waiting for? Get up and take action towards what God has told you to do!
Prov. 28:26 - ...when you lean on wisdom from above, you will have a way to escape the troubles of your own making. - The words of an older song say, "Lean on me, when you're not strong, I'll be your friend, I'll help you carry on." Jesus, is saying to you and I today, "Lean on Me, when you're not strong, when you've messed up again, when you've taken matters into your own hands and made a wreck of things." He wants to help us out of every situation. Yes, even the ones of our own making. He has the answer to everything and His wisdom will solve every problem no matter how bad it may seem. So, lean not on your own understanding, in ALL YOUR WAYS acknowledge Him.
Prov. 6:23 - For truth is a bright beam of light shining into every area of your life, instructing and correcting you to discover the ways of Godly living. - God's Word is truth! The truth found in the Word of God acts as a bright light that shines on any area of our lives that is not pleasing to Him. If we will choose to step into the light and not hide from it, we will find victory and freedom. Let truth (light) envelop you. Saturate your mind with truth. Hold truth up against the dark areas, the lies, the hidden things, and allow that light to expose and expel, correct, and give you Godly instructions for your life.
