This is the day

Standard

This is the day the Lord has made, we will be glad and rejoice in it.” Psalm 118:24

Today has been made by God. Believe it and you’ll see it! Name you day as ‘made by God’, not the devil, not people, enemies or economy, but God!

Many of us are waiting for our good days to come. Don’t put off being glad, waiting for your day. Today is made by God. See the good things in today.

Joy is a decision! It doesn’t always just come to us. Our joy in life is not based on what happens. We can choose to be happy ‘in spite’ of what is happening. Every day is “this” day, not just Friday or Saturday.

Everyday is made by God for you to rejoice in somehow, someway.

Be Blessed!

Abundance

Standard


Psalm 23:5 – “My cup runs over”

It is hard to find anywhere in Scripture where God does not provide more than enough!

Manna in a wilderness, oil for a widow, bread and fish for a multitude, flour for the widow of Zaraphath, wine at a wedding – God’s nature is to be exceedingly generous. Creation itself shouts the fact that God is gloriously, abundantly generous.

It is religion that has made Him seem small minded – withholding, stingy.

God’s greatest generosity is seen in not withholding His only Son and not condemning us but paying the highest price for our salvation!!

He is the God of ‘more than enough’, our God is the God of ‘exceeding abundantly above all we ask of think’ – Ephesians 3:20

Renewal

Standard


Job 14:7-9 “For there is hope for a tree, if it is cut down, that it will sprout again, And that it’s tender shoots will not cease. Though it’s root may grow old in the Earth, and it’s stump may die in the ground, yet at the scent of water it will bud and bring forth branches like a plant.”

Even though a tree may get ‘cut down’, it’s roots grow old and it’s stump die, at the ‘scent’ of water it will revive, begin growing again and come alive.

We need to reach out to every ‘cut down’ person and bring them into the Presence of God and even the ‘scent’ of living water will revive a dead soul.

We should never give up hope for anyone that they can be revived to God, no matter how old.

God is the secret to reviving ourselves, churches and families.

He is a river – the river of life! This river runs through His house every time we worship!

Speaking in new languages

Standard

2 Corinthians 4:13 – And since we have the same spirit of faith, according to what is written, “I believed and therefore I spoke,” we also believe and therefore speak.

Faith is a spirit, an attitude, a feeling – of courage, boldness, confidence, of ‘all things are possible’.

When we are filled with the Spirit of faith – the Holy Spirit, we will speak a new language of positive, upbuilding, creative words.

Faith speaks to:
1) Your circumstances – ‘Be still’, Jesus says to the storm’

2) Yourself – Tell yourself ‘Have faith in God’

3) God – Speak your prayer of faith to God.

Jesus is the High Priest of our confession!

FAITH SPEAKS.

What are you saying to your world today?

Perspective

Standard


Acts 28:3 But when Paul had gathered a bundle of sticks and laid them on the fire, a viper came out because of the heat, and fastened on his hand.

Paul has gone from one major problem to another, all of them threatening death. He escaped the storm only to be shipwrecked. He escaped that only to be bitten by a poisonous snake.

However, Paul believed God in every problem. He knew the problem was an opportunity.

The locals believed the snake would kill him. But Paul SHOOK IT OFF! He doesn’t die, so the locals now change their perspective because Paul’s perspective of a problem was positive. They say “He’s a god!”

This problem is the beginning of a major revival that sweeps the Island of Malta.

Life can seem like a series of problems but they are all just opportunities if we will change our perspective.
