A short-changed life!

Verse of the Day

For as he thinks in his heart, so is he. [NKJV] Proverbs 23:7a

For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword [NKJV] Hebrews 4:12a

……..

You cannot determine everything in your life with the way you feel, but with the way you think, with the way you speak. Speaking the Word of God activates your faith, changes your mind set and your thinking; and is that key in unlocking the doors to your miracles. Do you know that the word of God is living and filled with power? Do you know that? Do you know that when God’s word is activated in your life, His Word can fortify you against any giant, any obstacle, and any person that could ever stand in the way of your progress in life? Do you know that? Don’t you think it’s time you started empowering your mind with all that God says concerning you. Don’t you think it’s time you started speaking the words of God into existence into your life, into your life’s situation? Don’t short-change your destiny with your negative thinking; change it with the word of God. And with God on your side, you can never be defeated! #Verseoftheday #Devotional #Bible #JesusCan #Depression #Suicidal #Suicide #GivingUp #Encouragement #confused #confusion #Peace #breakthrough #hurt #pain #StinkingThinking #WordOfGod #ThinkGod #ThinkLife

Verse of the Day

The LORD continued to appear at Shiloh, and there he revealed himself to Samuel through his word. [NIV] 1 Samuel 3:21

….

Someone may have told you that in order for you to communicate with the Lord, you will need to hear His voice audibly. And to know it’s truly Him He needs to appear to you in person in order for you to believe. You don’t need God to appear to you in person for you to believe, you simply don’t, for indeed He can reveal himself through His written word, through His spoken word, through the Holy Spirit, through various means, He is the Lord and He will do what He pleases. However it’s not farfetched to believe that He can appear to you in person if He wishes to. Here, we are told that as young as Samuel was in the Lord, the Lord continued to appear to Him through His Word. And who is this word of the Lord that is being referred to? Jesus Christ! Even before Christ took on human flesh, He Was! You see, in the beginning the Word already existed. The Word was with God, and the Word was God. (John 1:1) The Word became human and made his home among us. He was full of unfailing love and faithfulness. And we have seen his glory, the glory of the Father’s one and only Son. (John 1:14). So where I’m I going with this, Jesus can still reveal himself in person to you, it’s not bonkers to think so 🙂 and you’re not out of your mind, if you happen to see Him. However, if you among those who haven’t seen his person, it still doesn’t mean He’s not who He is, and that He loves you any less! #He is God, He is Sovereign, He is Who He is, creator of heaven and earth! #VerseoftheDay #SamuelChallenge

Verse of the Day

Not a single one of all the good promises the LORD had given to the family of Israel was left unfulfilled; everything he had spoken came true. [NLT] Joshua 21:45

God promised Abraham to give his descendants (the family of Israel) the land of Canaan as their possession (Genesis 17:8), and not only did they possess it, they are still dwelling there till this day – in spite of every challenge that came their way. Every promise, every single one of them, as innumerable as they all were His promises to His friend Abraham, to Abraham’s descendants, every single one of them all came to pass. Now check this, What Promises has Jehovah given to you, and because it’s been a few days/months/years since you’ve had them, you’re now in quandary, wondering if they will ever happen? Yesterday we learnt that Jesus #Christ will be to His people what their faith needs and what the circumstance requires. Do you need Him to give you peace while He’s preparing a way to make His promises happen? Ask Him for it. Come-what-may, regardless of how fiercest the storm you’re facing maybe, one thing is certain. God’s promises to you will NEVER EVER GO UNFULFILED. You can bet your life of Him. His promises will surely come to pass in your life, now that I’m certain of! #JoshuaChallenge #Verseoftheday

Verse of the Day.

But they do not know the LORD’s thoughts or understand his plan. [NLT] Micah 4:12a

….

You may be experiencing some discomforts, maybe at work, home or even at your favourite place. Don’t let the way others treat/think of you affect your joy/how you see yourself. Whatever it may be will not destroy you; and even though it appears to be stealing your joy, the purpose of the Lord, His words and design for your life, will indefatigably stand. You will never be relegated to become a failure in life; neither will your days be spent in sadness and bitterness. No one knows the thoughts and plans of the Lord, only He knows, and He’s working it all out for you. Take heart, #Jesus cares!

As for God, His way is blameless; The word of the LORD is tried; He is a shield to all who take refuge in Him. Psalm 18:30 [NASB]

……

I woke up this morning with a list of a few things I was unhappy about. My first thought wasn’t “thank you Lord Jesus for another beautiful day” which was usually my response at the sight of day break, but instead, I woke up #tired, irritated, upset, unsettled as my mind ran through a list of things which had probably been etched in my mind of thinking just before I sank deep into sleep the night before. But as I sat here going through my list of testimonies “Overwhelming powerful, awesome, wonderful, excellent, beyond belief/imaginable things that God has done for me” I couldn’t help but realise God’s word, His promises to me have not only been certain/sure, but have been true, tried and tested. It beggars belief, that after everything, EVERYTHING God has done for me, I would sink so low to wake up being ungrateful. He has never failed before in my life, and He’s not going to start to fail now, He has never been unfaithful, – in fact to be truthful I have found Him to be constant, consistent and always on time. His love never changing, His favour has been so indescribable. And to top it all, His Words are not for me only but for you too, for everyone. Your day/life may not be as you wanted or planned it, but having #Jesus makes all the difference. Don’t just take my word for it, try Him yourself.

Thank you Lord Jesus for restoration! I have hidden His word in my heart – Can’t be having a repeat of this morning again 🙂
