Good morning! Happy Thursday to you all. That Labor day holiday threw my week off, but I’m here! (Giggling) It’s back to school for my kids and back to school for me. We are all in an exciting time in our life and we owe it all to God!
Romans 8:9-11 (NKJV)
9 But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. Now if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he is not His. 10 And if Christ is in you, the body is dead because of sin, but the Spirit is life because of righteousness. 11 But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.
PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT:
STOP LIVING A DEFEATED LIFE!
Attention believers of the Most High God,
This is a PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT: If in fact you are a believer of Christ then the Spirit of the Living God dwells within you. Since the Spirit of the LIVING GOD lives within you, it’s important that you know that the power that God used to raise Jesus from the dead dwells within you. SO, STOP LIVING A DEFEATED LIFE! You are filled with POWER!
When the doctors give you an ill report, don’t walk around with a defeated look on your face, trust in the POWER that is within you. If God can raise Jesus from the dead, surely He can heal you.
When your current employer hands you a pink slip, don’t walk around feeling defeated, rely on the POWER that is within you. If God can raise JESUS from the dead, surely he can give you a newer and better job. Promotion comes from God.
When your money is funny and friends are few, don’t walk around throwing yourself a pity party. Tap into the power of God and know that He is the great provider and He is a friend that sticks closer than a brother. There is power within you so STOP I repeat STOP living a defeated life!
It’s no wonder that people on your job, in your community, in your church, and even in your family never want to come to church or find Jesus because when they look at you they question does God really exist. STOP LIVING A DEFEATED LIFE! At the first sign of trouble immediately begin to pray for God to be your peace. Ask God to give you strength for the people who are watching you. Ask God to plaster a smile on your face to hide the hurt in your heart. Ask God to guide you through this trial. Then begin praising Him. Praise God for His power, praise Him for His protection, praise Him for being God. When you tap into the power that dwells within you, you should be able to walk in victory. You may lose some battles and even get some scraps and bruises along the way, but isn’t it great to know the war is ALREADY WON?
I decree and declare that no weapon formed against you shall prosper, I speak courage into your life, I speak confidence into your life, (not confidence in your ability, but confidence in God’s ability through you), I decree and declare that the enemy has no dominion or rule over your emotions, I bind the spirit of defeat in the name of Jesus, I bind low self-esteem in the name of Jesus, I bind fear in the name of Jesus, I bind a complaining spirit in the name of Jesus, I bind complacency in the name of Jesus, I bind anything and any person who is against the will of God in the name of Jesus. You are more than a conqueror and I say walk in your victory and know that in the end YOU WIN!!!!
Have a blessed day and embrace the power within! After all, we WIN!!!
