Faith Not Sight

FatihNotSight

Are you walking by faith or sight today? In other words, are you choosing to believe God no matter what your circumstances look like, or are you making decisions and focusing your mind on what you can see.

As believers, we have to remember that we aren’t just subject to this natural realm–what we can see, hear, touch, and smell. No, we have access to the unseen, supernatural realm where all the promises and blessings of God are stored. When you choose to walk by faith, you are opening a door from the natural realm to the supernatural realm and drawing the blessings of God into your life.

Remember: with God seeing isn’t believing; believing is seeing! Throughout the day, begin to declare, “Father, I want to thank You that my payday is coming. You said no good thing will You withhold because I walk uprightly. I believe even right now You’re arranging things in my favor.” As you walk and live by faith, you will live a life pleasing to God. You’ll see His blessing and favor in abundance, and you’ll fulfill the destiny He has in store for you!

Set Yourself Free

SetYouFree

 

Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.
John 8:32, NIV

Did you know that wrong labels can keep you from your destiny? You are not who people say you are. You are who God says you are. People will label you not good enough, too slow, too old, too many mistakes. God labels you strong, talented, valuable, more than a conqueror. Make sure that you’re wearing the right labels. Don’t go the next 20 years allowing one negative comment to hold you back.

Many people don’t know any better. They wear the negative labels like they’re the truth. They become so engrained in their thinking that they end up becoming what people say they are instead of what God says they are.

Are there labels that are holding you back today? What a coach said? What a counselor said? Even negative comments spoken by your parents? This is the time to remove every negative label. People don’t determine your destiny; God does. The only power that label has over you is the power that you give it. If you will remove it; if you will forgive that person and quit dwelling on it, then that label will have no effect on you!

PRAYER FOR TODAY:
Father, thank You for Your truth which sets me free. I choose to let go of every negative word spoken over me. I choose to forgive those who have hurt me. I embrace Your Word which is my identity in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Freedom

20130203-061940.jpg

All throughout the scriptures, God’s mission was to bring freedom, life, and blessing to those who followed Him. When Jesus walked the earth, He went around doing good and bringing healing; setting people free. If you feel overwhelmed by the pressures of the world today, remember, where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom! When you accept Jesus as your personal Lord and Savior, He makes His home on the inside of you. That means His Spirit lives within you so wherever you are, His liberty and freedom are with you, too! When you constantly focus on external things: distractions, cares, and worries of the world, you magnify them in your life until that’s all you see. But when you focus on what God has given you: peace, freedom, and abundant life, those are the things that you will see manifest in your life. Focus on His freedom today by declaring His goodness in your life. Sing a song of praise and thank Him for His hand of blessing and freedom. As you do, you will rise higher, and you will live the abundant life He has prepared for you!

A Prayer for Today

Father in heaven, thank You for loving and setting me free. I cast my cares on You today and choose to focus on Your freedom. I bless You today and magnify You in my life. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
