Verse of the Day

At that time the Spirit of the LORD will come powerfully upon you, and you will prophesy with them. You will be changed into a different person. [NLT] 1 Samuel 10:6

……

I’m sure there have been times when you’ve thought “there must be more to life than this”? And because you lack the motivation/power/confidence/self-worth to try to make the changes you would like to see, you end up feeling a little frustrated and overwhelmed, skewing your outlook in life. It doesn’t have to continue this way. You can still be that success story you desire to become. Those positive predictions you made in your younger years, of what you said you will become in future, are still very much attainable. All you need is the help of the Holy Spirit. The power of the Holy Spirit is available to transform every dead/dormant/deactivated/forgotten dream in your life into living, working, successful realities. Don’t you think it’s time for a change? Don’t you think it’s time to end every “junk” talk that you’ve said concerning your life out of frustration? I think it’s time to ask the Holy Spirit for the power to transform you into the kind of person that is not easily overwhelmed / frustrated. Someone who understands their identity in Christ and whom Christ has created for greatness. Someone who will never give up on his idea/dream/goal, just because someone told them it was impossible or that it appears too good for them. Someone whom God will make a wonder and a marvel to his generation! Can I get an Amen!

Verse of the Day

God the Father knew you and chose you long ago, and his Spirit has made you holy. As a result, you have obeyed him and have been cleansed by the blood of Jesus Christ. May God give you more and more grace and peace. [NLT] 1 Peter 1:2

….

Isn’t it wonderful to know that before we existed, we were loved, cherished and loved, and as a consequence of all the aforementioned, we were chosen? And because He chose us, God made us Holy (regardless of how bad things were in our lives) through His Holy Spirit. And because of the presence of the Holy Spirit in our lives, we were transformed into children who are obedient to the WORD of God, and most importantly our lives now have meaning because we have been cleansed by the shed blood of Jesus Christ. Isn’t all this knowledge wonderful to your soul? I don’t think I could have lived a life where nothing made sense, a life devoid of purpose, a life devoid of Christ. Thank you Lord for Jesus! Thank you God for the Holy Spirit! That you Lord for your grace and peace without which I probably would have given up on life a long time ago! The Knowledge of your love for me gives me hope, gives me assurance, gives me a certainty that my life is worth living!  Hallelujah, may your name be praised forever more. #Verseoftheday #PeterChallenge

The LORD is my rock, my fortress, and my savior; my God is my rock, in whom I find protection. He is my shield, the power that saves me, and my place of safety. [NLT] Psalm 18:2

Ask the Lord to strengthen your faith and lean on Him for help as you navigate your way through your goals. Asking Him to be your rock means regardless of what happens; you know you can depend on HIM to help you in your time of need. Not only will He help you, He will shield you from the torrents of disappointments that may try to sabotage the success of your goals this year. Let Him help you, and you will find that there is indeed no god like Jehovah. Indeed there is no god like our Lord Jesus. Go to Him, and you will never be dismayed that you did. #Jehovah is a dependable God!

But you, O LORD, are a shield around me; you are my glory, the one who holds my head high. [NLT] Psalm 3:3

The Lord Jehovah is your shield, your glory, the one who lifts you up even after you think you’ve failed :). One person’s failed event could be another’s mock event. The practice one before the real test. Even after you’ve given it your best and you didn’t get the results you expected, don’t let that unsettle you. At least you’ve learnt what your strengths and weaknesses are, and should be ready for the next bout on the ring. And this time around, you will not fail. #A failure is only a failure because he thinks he is one! #A person whose head is held high by the Lord surely cannot be a failure? #It’s still full steam ahead working out our goals with the Lord by our side, and dusting ourselves up after a few “mock knock downs”.

“But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I said to you. [NASB] John 14:26
…….
Every person at some time or another will always need help. As you try to implement your plans for this year through sheer hard work and persistence, never giving up at any sign of difficulty, try not to forget to ask the Holy Spirit for Help. With Him by your side, He makes the work times infinity much faster . Well, let just say, because He helps you with your timing, your memory, your to do list, your actions and much more, He makes the whole process a lot easier. And with God by your side, you are already almost at your desired goal. You can achieve anything with the help of the Holy Spirit of God!
