For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength. [NLT] Philippians 4:13
You have Jesus’ strength to do all the things you’ve set your mind to achieve this year. He has already given you the power, the leverage, the understanding and the wherewithal that you will ever need to attain success. You’ve done the planning, the preparation, have invited the Lord Jesus for His counsel, and the work has started in earnest. Don’t lose your patience, your heart, your sight of the goal or take the wrong action because of some of the challenges that may come your way. No one said it was going to be easy. But you have the assurance that it will all be worth it. # Who told you your strength has its limitations? #Why are you still listening to people who like reminding you that your plans are unrealistic since you don’t have the wherewithal to achieve them? Have you not the strength of the Omnipotence, a superior strength backing you as you make your way through this 2014? #Superior strength is what you have and will ever; don’t give up on the dreams!
So be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid and do not panic before them. For the LORD your God will personally go ahead of you. He will neither fail you nor abandon you.” [NLT] Deuteronomy 31:6
It’s true that the work involved in transforming your plans from once a figment of your imagination to reality is numerous, immense and enormous in nature. Confusion of where to start may have set in, and you’re now probably considering ditching the whole idea, and just settling for the ordinary. Don’t you know that the workload entailed can never defeat you? Since during the planning and preparation stage you asked #JEHOVAH God to help you to make your plans a success this 2014, the tasks to do in getting your projects off the ground cannot conquer you. Be of sound mind; be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Trust and rely on Him solely and He will never disappoint you. Don’t let the workload devastate you, be of good courage, and do all you can to get the work started. You are well on your way to your breakthrough. You are well on your way to seeing your plans realised this 2014. You are well on your way in making your dreams a reality. You are well on your way to a great start this 2014! #Shake, shake your body loose! #Don’t let your life be intimidated, oppressed, harassed, and tormented by the work it needs to get to where it desires to be! #Still no quitters invited, permitted or needed! #Hard work is still the name of the plan!
O LORD, you are my lamp. The LORD lights up my darkness [NLT] 2 Samuel 22:29
Since God has made you into a light, you no longer have any links with Darkness. Everything that brought unimaginable sadness, shame and scandal, humiliation, distress, broken heart, broken promises, disappointments, abandonment, rejection, trials of many kinds, was Darkness. But thank God for God, Our bright and Morning Star, came in and took away everything that reflected darkness in our lives and transformed us all into lights. Because in truth, nothing, not even darkness can ever stand in the brightness of His light, His glory. So don’t waste a moment longer of your life on those dark moments that used to throng your life, and focus on the fact that you are now reflecting the brilliance and brightness of God’s glory, our Lord Jesus Christ, and for that reason, no form of darkness can ever be able to withstand you all the days of your life!
