Happy Sunday EVERYBODY!
I just got this awesome song in my spirit right now to uplift you if you’re feeling down about your situation. It’s by Bryan Popin called I Can Make It! I don’t know what it is that you’re facing right now but you need to know that the God inside of you is saying YOU CAN DO THE IMPOSSIBLE. You have Christ in you the hope of Glory and because He lives inside of you, He will make a way out of no way for you.
To them God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.
In order for you to do the impossible this year, you have to shift your mindset. You can only be transformed when you start to renew your mind. You have to put away the childish behaviours of yesterday and tap into the meat of God’s Word for this year.
When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things.
You cannot afford to be emotional about everything. It’s time to build some back-bone in your spirit. How else can you remain steadfast if you’re always cowering away from every test, obstacle or set back. The reason why we overcome by faith in the first place is because you will face tests, you will face trouble but you have to take heart and know that with Jesus on your side, you can overcome anything that’s in this world.
These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”
Yes, disappointments may come, people might let you down, you may even be frustrated by yourself this year….but I repeat, fix your eyes on Jesus, the Author and Finisher of your Faith. You will pull through, you will make it. Do not be discouraged, do not be dismayed. There are more for you than there are against you. Understand that you will face an intense spiritual battle this year, so you must guard you heart, guard your mind from negative thoughts, guard your spirit by wearing your armor at all times.
Whether you realize this or not, you are already enlisted to fight in the good fight of FAITH for this year. Don’t act like you aren’t a soldier for Christ by putting your head in the sand. Many people remain weak in the church because they simply don’t want to fight the battle that’s right in front of them. Stop waiting for others to fight your own battles...pick up your sword (The Word of God) and Fight. You cannot imagine the frustration I feel sometimes when I see complacent Christians in the church not wanting to confront injustice, not wanting the challenge the status quo because you’re too afraid of what sister or brother so and so will say about it. God is in the business of restoring righteousness with His people this year…so yes, that means challenging the current status quo. You will have something to contend with. David had to fight Goliath…so church of Jesus Christ, it is an expectation that you will learn to slay some giants this year. Can I get an Amen to that? ….ohhhhh the silence…
looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
