The Dunamis Power of God by Deborah Waldron Fry
I saw a Believer and all around him was what looked and sounded like crackling electricity and I heard it was the "Air of Expectancy; the Dunamis Power of God."

"Beloved. Expect miracles to happen. You no longer walk in the flesh, but in the Spirit. I have chosen you. I have made known to you the glorious riches of My Mysteries, which is Christ in you, the hope of GLORY. As you walk in faith, the very atmosphere of heaven invades your space. You carry My Presence. My Spirit dwells in your heart. My Child, this Holy Potential Energy within you is always ready to be released. I have positioned you right where you need to be for such a time as this. I will show you HOW GREAT this Treasure within you is.

Just ask, Dear One. Be in a constant state of expectancy that something GOOD is about to happen. I am GOOD and there is no darkness in Me. My plans for you are always for GOOD and not for evil. I have anointed you to lay hands on the sick, to cast out demons, to open blind eyes, and to raise the dead. This Dunamis power, My Power, is in your hands. I am the Vine, you are the branches. Draw upon Me, My Child, for My Supply is unlimited and never ending. All of creation waits in eager expectation for My sons and daughters to be revealed. I baptize you with Fire. I am blowing upon the embers. You shall be like an electrical storm in the midst of the darkness, Beloved. Arise and shine in the Power of My Shekinah Glory, release the very Zoe LIFE of your God!

AIR OF EXPECTANCY:The state of thinking or hoping that something, especially something good, will happen.
POTENTIAL ENERGY: the energy possessed by a body by virtue of its position relative to another. Stored energy; electric charge.

SHEKINAH GLORY:the visible manifestation of the Presence of God.
DUNAMIS: Greek:Strong's 1411:INHERENT power, power residing in a thing by virtue of its nature, or which a person or thing exerts and puts forth; Power for performing miracles. Strength, power, ability.

...2 Corinthians 4:7 Now we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the surpassing greatness of the power is from God, and not of us,
...Romans 8:18 I consider that our present sufferings are not comparable to the GLORY that will be revealed in us. 19The creation waits in eager EXPECTATION for the revelation of the sons of God.
...Colossians 1:26the mystery that was hidden for ages and generations but is now revealed to His saints. 27to whom God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles the glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.

A Bouquet of Flowers by Tammy Lang Jensen
As I met Jesus in the garden, he handed me a bouquet of flowers. As I looked at them, I realized they were constantly changing in my hand. 

One minute they were jasmine, then irises, then orchids. I asked Jesus,”Why is the bouquet changing every couple of minutes?”

He said, because I know you love many flowers, not just one and my heart desire is that your life would be full of the things you love. But then he showed me something, with a lesson in it. We were in a lush green valley standing in the middle of the most magnificent herd of horses you have ever seen. I immediately started looking at all the horses thinking of names, daydreaming of my vision for a ranch. Before long, I realized I was no longer talking with Jesus. I was enamored with the blessing and all I needed to do.

Did you know the enemy can bless you right out of your relationship with Jesus? Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, then for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God (Matthew 19:24). This is a gentle nudge to keep your eyes fixed on Jesus and not on his hand. As long as your heart is buried in your savior you can never go wrong....

Excellence Requires Discipline by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome
Seest thou a man diligent in his business? he shall stand before kings; he shall not stand before mean men (Proverbs 22:29).

When it comes to the quality of your work, it’s either what you do is excellent or it’s lackluster. As a child of God, whatever you do, wherever you work, make up your mind to be excellent, because you’re of an excellent spirit. Tell yourself, “If it’s not excellent, I’m not done.”

Everything you do and are involved with must be the best, because you’re a child of the best. Don’t settle for average. To be excellent, you’ve got to practise it. If you’re a structural engineer, for example, don’t construct mediocre structures; structures that can’t, and wouldn’t stand the test. Go all out to apply the right engineering principles and technology to build quality design and construction. Refuse to cut corners; use only the best materials.

Carry out detailed research on your work, on the right tools and materials you need to make you the best and the preferred amongst many other great options. Distinguish yourself as someone with an excellent spirit. The Bible says concerning Daniel, “…an excellent spirit was in him; and the king thought to set him over the whole realm” (Daniel 6:3).

Yes. Excellence makes you a leader, but it requires discipline. The Bible says, “And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things…” (1 Corinthians 9:25). The word, “temperate” means discipline, to have self-control. 1 Corinthians 9:27, “But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection….” Again, this refers to discipline; subjecting yourself to the right and necessary trainings, and sometimes rigours, in order to be the best at what you do.

There’s excellence in your spirit, and it’ll manifest in all you do as you carry out your assignments with a lot more diligence.

CONFESSION
I have an excellent spirit, and I produce excellent results in all I do. The Holy Spirit is at work in me, both to will and to deliver excellence, in accordance with His perfect will. I’m a success, because I function with the wisdom of Christ and His superabundant grace. Glory to God!

Memorise: He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, and lifteth up the beggar from the dunghill, to set them among princes, and to make them inherit the throne of glory: for the pillars of the earth are the LORD’S, and he hath set the world upon them. 1st Samuel 2:8

Read: Genesis 41:39-46 (KJV)

39 And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, Forasmuch as God hath shewed thee all this, there is none so discreet and wise as thou art:
40 Thou shalt be over my house, and according unto thy word shall all my people be ruled: only in the throne will I be greater than thou.
41 And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, See, I have set thee over all the land of Egypt.
42 And Pharaoh took off his ring from his hand, and put it upon Joseph's hand, and arrayed him in vestures of fine linen, and put a gold chain about his neck;
43 And he made him to ride in the second chariot which he had; and they cried before him, Bow the knee: and he made him ruler over all the land of Egypt.
44 And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, I am Pharaoh, and without thee shall no man lift up his hand or foot in all the land of Egypt.
45 And Pharaoh called Joseph's name Zaphnathpaaneah; and he gave him to wife Asenath the daughter of Potipherah priest of On. And Joseph went out over all the land of Egypt.
46 And Joseph was thirty years old when he stood before Pharaoh king of Egypt. And Joseph went out from the presence of Pharaoh, and went throughout all the land of Egypt.

Message:
As observed by the Preacher in Ecclesiastes 1:9, some life events are capable of repeating themselves in history.

One of these is the rags-to-riches story described in today’s Bible reading. Joseph had been sold into slavery in Egypt by his brothers, and as if that was no enough, he was also framed and cast into prison, where he remained for some years until God’s favour rose over his destiny and took him to the throne as second-in-command of the largest empire on earth, even though he was a stranger there. The familiar story has some hidden lessons we can learn. First of all, God will do whatever He has purposed in His heart to do, regardless of any obstacles on the way. Although Joseph was destined to be great, his brothers thought they could abort God’s plan for his life by selling him to slavery. They could never have imagined that they were actually sending him to the place where his dreams of greatness would be fulfilled. Likewise, when Potiphar’s wife framed him, little did she know she was only acting as an instrument to bring about the fulfilment of God’s plan for him. In fact, Pharaoh’s butler could been reinstated without him dreaming about it. God however made him dream about it so that Joseph could be known, and his gift of interpreting dreams could be used to save lives (Genesis 50:18-20).

Beloved, are you passing through the furnace of envy and jealousy of those you consider to be your brethren? Joseph’s experience can be repeated in your life. All you need to do is keep your focus on where God is taking you to. Joseph was focused and that was why he achieved his purpose in life. Some people give up on their dreams in the face of adversity. This is not right, because Proverbs 24:10 says:

“If thou faint in the day of adversity, thy strength is small.”

Are you in the prison of despondency and uncertainty? I prophesy into your life today that you will ascend from that prison to the throne of joy and glory in Jesus’ Name. Those looking down on you shall begin to look up to you, and you will fulfil your destiny in Jesus’ Name. For you to fulfil your destiny gloriously, you need to align yourself with the Author of your destiny: Jesus Christ is His Name. That destiny which Satan, sin and the wicked people of this world have battered shall be restored, and today shall be your day of coronation in Jesus’ Name. Congratulations!

Prayer Point
Father, please take me to the place where Your purpose for my life will be fulfilled in Jesus’ Name.

God Wants You Well by Kenneth Copeland
If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the Lord thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the Lord that healeth thee.

Exodus 15:26

Has the devil ever tried to put you under condemnation by telling you that it’s contrary to the principles of faith to use doctors and medicine when you need healing? If so, here are some encouraging words that I believe will help you put your heart at rest.

It is God’s will to heal you. That’s the first and most important thing for you to understand. If your faith is strong and you can believe the Word without wavering (regardless of what circumstances or symptoms come against you), then you’ll be able to receive that healing by faith alone.

But that kind of faith takes more than just hearing a few sermons about healing. It takes a deep personal revelation of God’s healing power. So, if you haven’t yet developed that kind of faith, the doctor is your best friend.

If you’re not certain whether your faith is strong enough or whether you need a doctor’s help, follow the instructions of the Apostle Paul (Colossians 3:15) and let peace be your umpire.

If fear rises up within you when you think about doing without medical help, then go to a doctor. And go in faith! On the other hand, if you have a sure confidence within you that healing is yours strictly by faith, let your faith do its work and receive your healing directly. Whether or not you go to the doctor is not the issue. It is what you do with your faith.

Either way, you can rejoice knowing God is working with you, meeting you at the level of your faith. Thank God for your healing—however it comes!—and do not let Satan put you under condemnation. It is none of his business!

A Sacred Institution by Billy Graham
Follow after the things which make for peace, and things wherewith one may edify another.
—Romans 14:19

The home is basically a sacred institution. The perfect marriage is the uniting of three persons—a man and a woman and God. This is what makes marriage holy. Faith in Christ is the most important of all principles in the building of a happy marriage and a successful home. The secret strength of a nation is found in the faith that abides in the hearts and homes of the country.

A strong marriage starts with God at the center.

Prayer for the day
May we so love one another, through You, Lord Jesus--that our homes will be reflections of the glory of Your inestimable love.

How Will Your Decision Affect Others? by Rick Warren
“Each of us will give an account of himself to God. So don’t criticize each other anymore. Try instead to live in such a way that you will never make your brother stumble by letting him see you doing something that he thinks is wrong” (Romans 14:12-13 TLB).

One of the biggest mistakes we make in life is forgetting how much our actions influence the people around us. Every day you are tempted to make decisions that may seem best for you but could have a devastating effect on the people around you. If you want to make wise decisions, you need to ask, “Will my choice harm other people?”

That’s the opposite of our culture. Our society teaches us to think only of ourselves. But God wants you to think about others, not just yourself. In fact, the Bible says that one day you’re going to be judged by God on how your decisions affected other people.

Romans 14:12-13 says, “Each of us will give an account of himself to God. So don’t criticize each other anymore. Try instead to live in such a way that you will never make your brother stumble by letting him see you doing something that he thinks is wrong” (TLB).

You may not like hearing this, but you are being watched—all the time. If you’re a parent, you should be especially aware that little eyes are always observing. You’ve got to be careful about what you say and do because you’re influencing not just your life but the next generation as well.

Show respect for authority. If a police officer pulls you over for a ticket, even if you think he’s wrong, you treat him with respect.

Don’t call in sick when your family is actually going to the beach for the day.

Don’t bring supplies home that you stole from the office to use for personal benefit.

Don’t cheat on your taxes—and then brag in front of your kids about all the ways you’re ripping off Uncle Sam.

Don’t watch the awful stuff that’s on TV and in the movies with your kids. Think about whether you should be watching it at all.

Mature people limit their freedom for the benefit of others. Not because you’re afraid of what other people think, but because you’re motivated by love. In situations where there is no clear right or wrong, you have to ask yourself, “How will my decision affect other people?”

Talk It Over

How does pride affect your ability to clearly consider how your choices affect other people?
Does it matter if the other person thinks what you’re doing is wrong even if you think it’s right? Why or why not?
Practically speaking, what does it look like to limit your freedom for the benefit of others?

Invest In Yourself by Joel Osteen
...they have made me a keeper of the vineyards, but my own vineyard I have not kept.
Song of Solomon 1:6, NKJV

TODAY'S WORD:

Living a balanced life brings peace, joy and health to every area of your life. When you are out of balance in your life, you open a door to the enemy. If you're always on the go, constantly working, and never taking time for yourself, you will end up stressed out and overwhelmed, and you won't be able to enjoy life the way that God intended. Solomon was good at taking care of everyone else—his family, his friends, his work. He made sure everyone else was happy, but in doing that, he neglected to take care of himself. Are you living like that today? Do you spend all your time on other people, but not any on yourself? Eventually, you will burn out and won't be able to reach out to others. Decide today to begin investing in yourself. Take time to relax and rejuvenate yourself. Appreciate and enjoy the great things God has placed in your life. When you are refreshed emotionally, physically and spiritually, you are able to give to others more effectively. As you bring balance to your life, you will begin to enjoy life to the fullest.

PRAYER FOR TODAY:

God, my plate is full. I spend much of my time running, serving, doing. Remind me that it is OK to slow down and enjoy a quiet moment with You. Refresh my spirit and help me to live a balanced life with You at the top of my To-Do list. In Jesus' name - Amen.

Carried in His Arms by Joyce Meyer
I will say to the LORD, "My refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust."

— Psalm 91:2

At various points in our lives, all of us feel we’re getting “out of our depth” or “in over our heads.” There are problems all around: a job is lost, someone dies, there is strife in the family, or a bad report comes from the doctor. When these things happen, our temptation is to panic because we feel we’ve lost control.

But think about it: The truth is that we’ve never been in control when it comes to life’s most crucial elements. The only thing that holds us up—and the thing we can be most grateful for—is the grace of God, our Father, and that won’t change.

God is never out of His depth, and therefore, we’re safe when we’re in life’s “deep end” because we can trust that He will always carry us in His arms.

Prayer Starter: Thank You, Father, that You are a refuge for me. I know that because You are with me, I can feel safe and secure. Thank You that no matter how difficult life may seem, I can be at peace because You will never let me go. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

The Routine of Life by John Hagee
1 Timothy 6:18-19
Let them do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to give, willing to share, storing up for themselves a good foundation for the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life

Do you ever get discouraged by the routine of life? After all, most of us haven’t slain a giant, camped out in the belly of a whale, led a million people across a desert, or healed the sick when our shadow fell across them.

Don’t be discouraged! Shepherds, fishermen, tax collectors, farmers – our heroes of the faith were just everyday people leading ordinary lives until God put His finger on them to do extraordinary things.

Too often, we search for the huge moment that it will define our faith. What we overlook are the small, seemingly insignificant places where God begins to build the character and characteristics for the plans He has in mind for us.

Jesus reassures us that, if we do something as inconsequential as giving a cup of cold water in His name, there is a reward in that small act (Matthew 10:42). That is an easy starting point!

When we are filled with the Spirit of God, we are full of power to impact our worlds, our spheres of influence. When we do small things well over a long period of time with great love, they add up to a life of big impact for Jesus.

Blessing:

Heavenly Father, give me the courage to take the first step – to give in Your name, to invite someone to church, to volunteer, to pray with a hurting friend, to do any small thing to bring You glory. Help me be faithful in the small things and remember that, even if I receive no other recognition, You see and are pleased. In Jesus’ name…amen.

The Cross: Grace Displayed by Dr. Charles Stanley
Romans 3:21-27

At Calvary, the Lord displayed His grace for the entire world to see. The cross represents the intersection of His holiness and His love. From there, He poured out mercy on an undeserving population: all of humanity, including you and me.

Our holy God is absolutely without fault. He’s so perfect that no earthly man or woman can look upon Him and live (Ex. 33:20). The problem has to do with our sinful nature—we all have an inborn desire to rebel against His authority (Rom. 3:10). Anyone who thinks otherwise is deceiving himself (1 John 1:8). It’s important to understand that God hates sin. He cannot let evil abide in His presence, so He pronounced a death sentence on sinners (Rom. 6:23).

But Scripture also tells us that God is love (1 John 4:8), and He created people with the intention of caring for them. In fact, the Lord desires that all people spend eternity with Him. Yet there remains the problem of our sin and the penalty that we owe.

The Lord cannot violate His own nature. Though God loves mankind, His holiness would be compromised if He permitted the filth of sin into His presence. So the Father made a way to cleanse dirty hearts and transform wayward natures: He put the sin of all mankind on Jesus Christ’s shoulders.

The Father sent His holy Son to be a perfect sacrifice on our behalf. In other words, Jesus Christ took our sin upon Himself and died on the cross in our place. By trusting Him as our Savior, we receive His forgiveness and are made new (2 Corinthians 5:17). From then on, our Father sees us as holy, perfect, and welcome in His presence.

Bring Glory To God by Jerry Savelle
Are you under pressure? You you feeling overwhelmed and challenged? If you are, you need to understand that it was brought on by Satan. He brings heaviness – heaviness of spirit, heaviness of mind, and even heaviness physically. Whatever you do, don’t blame God for the trial. He is not the author of trials.

Jesus said that once the Word is sown in a man’s heart, Satan comes immediately to steal it and to take it away. He also told us that there are five major avenues that Satan uses: afflictions, persecutions, the cares of this world, the lust of other things, and the deceitfulness of riches (Mark 4:14-20). Satan is the tempter; he is the one who brings condemnation to you. He is the one that brings heaviness, not God (1 Peter 1:3-7).

The Apostle Peter describes it this way in verse 7: though it be tried by fire. Many times the trials that you are involved in feel like a fiery furnace.

God wants you to know that you can endure anything Satan brings against you. And if you will follow the instructions in His Word, you will come out on the other side of that trial like Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego did (Daniel 3): untouched, unharmed and totally protected!

God knows Satan is a spiritual outlaw and that he is out to kill, to steal, and to destroy. BUT God gave us weapons that are not carnal to use to fight Satan (Ephesians 6:10-18). God has put in our hands the means whereby, regardless of what Satan brings, there is a way of escape. God is glorified when we use these weapons and defeat Satan. God doesn’t receive glory when we are beat down. Jesus tells us just exactly how we can glorify our Father: “If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; So shall ye be my disciples.” (John 15:7, 8). Notice, Jesus doesn’t say anything about God receiving glory when we are beat down and defeated. He said God is glorified when we are full of His Word and that Word makes us fruitful or productive.

I have good news for you today, you have been provided a way of escape! Remember Isaiah 54:17 says: “No weapon formed against thee shall prosper.” Even though Satan will bring situations to you and try to steal the Word out of your heart, you can bring glory to God when you take His Word and resist the devil until he flees. You are a testimony that God’s Word works. You are more than a conqueror through Him.

Confession: , “I am a conqueror! It may feel like I am in a furnace now, BUT, I will resist the Devil, and he will flee! God has provided my way of escape. I will bear much fruit and bring glory to my God!”

Getting Filled With All The Fullness of God by Joseph Prince
Ephesians 3:19

to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.

We would all like to experience more health, abundance and success in our lives. God, being God, has all of these things, won’t you agree? So to be full of God is to be full of health, abundance and success. But how does one become full of God?

In the past, I was told that to be “filled with all the fullness of God,” I had to fast a certain number of days, pray a certain number of hours and speak in tongues incessantly! I am not belittling fasting, praying or speaking in tongues, but to be filled with all the fullness of God is not about what you do. It is not even about your love for Christ. It is actually about knowing the love of Christ! No one ever told me that if I knew how much God loves me and focused on His love for me, I would be full of Him.

When God made you, He designed you to run at optimal level when you are filled with His love, like a car that runs at its best when it is filled with the right kind of petrol or gasoline. When you realize how much God loves you and you feed on His love for you, you will be supernaturally filled with the fullness of God.

And to be full of God is to be full of everything God is to you and has for you. To be full of God is to come to a place of life, health, peace, abundance—total wellness.

Also, when you are conscious of how much God loves you and you become filled with the fullness of God, what follows is the next verse—God doing exceedingly abundantly above all that you can ask or think, according to the power that works in you (see Ephesians 3:20). You will experience the tremendous blessings of God exploding in your life! You will become a blessing magnet!

So as God’s beloved, continue to be nourished by His love for you, and experience more health, abundance and success in your life!

Open Heavens: The Works of the Flesh by Pastor E.A Adeboye
Sunday May 26th 2019
Memorise: Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof. Romans 6:12

Read: Galatians 5:19-21 (KJV)
19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,
20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,
21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
Open heaven 26 may 2019

Bible in one year: 
Leviticus 6-7,
Jeremiah 43,

Hymnal: 
Sing hymn 12

Message:
The flesh is the Adamic nature that everyone is born with. This nature is subject to sin and is under its bondage.

However, when a person becomes born again, he or she dies to this nature as it is nailed to the cross of Jesus, and so sin no longer has dominion over such a person (Romans 6:6, Galatians 5:24). To live in this dominion, we must continually stand our ground in faith against the works of the flesh whenever suggestions to do them arise in our mind. Allowing the works of the flesh to manifest in your life after becoming born again implies choosing to be dominated by the flesh again (Romans 6:16). The Holy Spirit lists some works of the flesh in today’s Bible reading, and He makes it clear that those who engage in them cannot inherit the kingdom of God. It’s true that after becoming born again, we are still susceptible to the works of the flesh because of the moral body we live in (Romans 6:12). However, when Jesus returns to transform us, this mortal body will be done away with and we will have a new body that is no longer susceptible to sin (1st Corinthians 15:35-54). For this reason, the Holy Spirit admonishes us to subdue the needs and desires of our present body through self-denial and discipline so that the works of the flesh do not find expression through any of its parts. He says in Colossians 3:5:

“Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry.”

He also says in Romans 8:13:
“For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.”

Please take note of the terms the Holy Spirit uses in these verses. As Christians, we are to mortify our bodies and not the flesh because our flesh, which is the old Adamic nature, is crucified already. The mortification of our body must be done consciously and deliberately. Sharing his personal experience on this, Apostle Paul says in 1st Corinthians 9:27:

“But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to other, I myself should be a castaway.”

Beloved, no matter the spiritual height you have attained, you have to keep subduing your body through self-denial and discipline so that it does not mess you up. This is the reason why I always say that one cannot be too careful when it comes to the issue of sin. May the Lord help us to finish well and strong in Jesus’ Name.

Action Point
Abstain from anything that triggers sinful desires in Your body such as going to night clubs, unnecessary body contact with the opposite sex, pornography and ungodly jokes.

We Live In The Victory of Christ by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome
But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ (1 Corinthians 15:57).

In Christianity, we pose a solid front! We don’t chicken out; we don’t live in fear; we’re bold and strong, irrespective of the troubles or adversities we face. We maintain our faith-filled confessions. We’re confident about life; confident that come what may, we’re more than conquerors.

There’re those who say, “Well, you don’t know what life will bring forth; you never can tell what’s going to happen tomorrow.” That’s not us; we don’t talk like that! We know what will happen tomorrow: tomorrow, we’ll win; we’ll still be shouting, dancing, and rejoicing in victory. Why? It’s because the script has been written: all things work together for good, to them that love God (Romans 8:28). Our light afflictions produce for us a far more exceeding, and eternal weight of glory (2 Corinthians 4:17). We triumph always in all things and in every place (2 Corinthians 2:14). Hallelujah!

The “Script,” the Word by which we live, says we’re victors forever, come rain, come shine, and we’re simply acting it out. Part of that script says in Romans 8:35, “Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?” After considering all these things, the Spirit’s conclusion, who is the “Scriptwriter,” is that we’re more than conquerors.

In Isaiah 54:16-17, again, the “Scriptwriter” wrote, “Behold, I have created the smith that bloweth the coals in the fire, and that bringeth forth an instrument for his work; and I have created the waster to destroy. No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.” What a word! If this doesn’t give anyone the confidence to face life and win, then nothing will.

You’re invincible. Your life is for the glory of God. Nothing in this world can defeat you or put you under as long as you live in the victory of Christ. There’s nothing to struggle with or try to overcome, because you have triumphed already with, and in Christ. Don’t allow the circumstances of life try to make you think otherwise.

CONFESSION
I walk in the reality of all that’s written about me in the Scriptures. The Lord is my Rock and my Strength, He’s the glory of my life. In Him, I’ve overcome the world. I’m walking in the victory of Christ. I win every day, reigning in life through Christ Jesus. I make progress. I walk in peace with prosperity. I’m healthy, vibrant and strong. Glory to God!

Discover What the Name Can Do by Kenneth Copeland
Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth.

Philippians 2:9-10

Once you make up your mind to keep the commands of Jesus and begin to allow the Word to dwell in you richly, the Name of Jesus will become far more powerful to you. It will become more than just a word. It will become a force that will cause every circumstance and every demon that tries to stand in your way to bow its knee to your command.

I tell you, the Name of Jesus works. There is far greater power in it than any of us have yet realized.

My faith is so set on the authority of the Name of Jesus that there are times I just say, “In the Name” and the power of God comes on the scene.

In fact, I’ve discovered that the Name of Jesus—just the Name alone—is effective when spoken by a Word-abiding believer. Revelation 19:13 says the Name of Jesus is the Word of God! So, when an evil spirit is trying to bring sickness, poverty, depression or any other garbage into my household, I don’t have to quote every scripture I know to stop him. I can just point my finger at him and say, “Jesus!” That’s like throwing the whole Word of God in his face at one time!

Discover for yourself what the exalted Name can do. Begin to speak it with confidence and authority. There is power in the Name of Jesus.

Jesus Is Matchless by Billy Graham
You have your life through Christ Jesus. He showed us God's plan of salvation; he was the one who made us acceptable to God . . . 
—1 Corinthians 1:30 (TLB)

More and more I am becoming aware of the truth that people change people as much as ideas change people. The power of personality is strong. One could find many illustrations to prove that often personality is greater than the idea. Such is the case with Christianity.

The secret of the power of Christianity is not in its ethics. It is not in Christian ideas or philosophy, although Christianity has a philosophical set of ideas. The secret of Christianity is found in a Person, and that Person is the Lord Jesus Christ. Men have discovered other philosophical and ethical systems, but they have not found another Jesus Christ. No one in history can match Him.

What makes Jesus so special? Billy Graham explains.

Read and share this resource explaining the importance of Christ.

Prayer for the day
When I tell others of Your love, help me to hide my personality in Yours, Lord Jesus.

The Low Riding Cars by Tammy Lang Jensen
The Lord was showing me images of low riding cars this morning. The ones with hydraulics that make the front end bounce up-and-down. I realized you really don’t see those cars as much anymore. 

They were a passing fad, and unfortunately those adjustments made to the car did not improve its driving ability, what the car was originally designed for.

If anything, the car was hindered, and when sitting so low could not be driven over obstacles or just anywhere. The Lord gave a stern warning about getting caught up in fads in the church building. What seems to be the latest and greatest new thing. Because as time wears on, fads will fade away. But the truth of God will stand forever. In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God (John 1:1). Remain steadfast in the truths of God, and don’t become obsolete. All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction and righteousness; that the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works (2 Timothy 3:16-17)....


Let the word of God furnish you, like a well furnished home. Let Christ be the firm foundation on which it’s built. Not a lot of fluff, but a lot of foundational truth. So you may be asking, what is the truth? The truth is, Christ will return one day while no one knows the hour....”Are you ready?” The word tells us in Matthew 24:36- But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. Our job is to just trust and obey and do the works of the Lord. Because quite frankly my friends, someone is dying every day and going to hell because they never heard the good news, the gospel of Christ.

The fact that heaven and hell are real, and not choosing is a choice in and of itself, choose Christ and live. The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life and have it more abundantly (John 10:10). The word of God assures us that on the third day he rose, we serve a risen savior! But what Christ did between the crucifixion and the resurrection are just as important. I am the living one; I was dead, and now look, I am alive forever and ever! And I hold the keys of death, hell and the grave! (Revelation 1:18).

I hear people prophesying all the time about the keys being passed out, keys of promotion, revelation, wisdom and knowledge. And that is all well and good, but don’t lose sight of the most important key, the key to the grave. Once you were dead in your sins, but now you are alive forever more. Thank you Jesus for the redemptive power of your blood. So keep the main thing, the main thing; and keep your eyes on Jesus. Return to your first love and say this with me: “I am my beloveds and my beloved is mine” (Song of Solomon 6:3)....

Decide What’s Best, Not Just What’s Good by Rick Warren
“'I have the right to do anything,’ you say—but not everything is beneficial. ‘I have the right to do anything’—but not everything is constructive” (1 Corinthians 10:23 NIV).

Some things are not necessarily wrong; they’re just not necessary. Most choices you make in life are not really a matter between good and bad. They’re more a matter of what’s best for you.

The Bible talks about this in 1 Corinthians 10:23: “‘I have the right to do anything,’ you say—but not everything is beneficial. ‘I have the right to do anything’—but not everything is constructive” (NIV).

Some things are morally neutral. To make a good decision, you need to go to a higher standard and ask, “Will I become a better person because of what I’m about to do?” That’s called the improvement test.

I remember many years ago when Kay was nursing our baby, who always got hungry about noon, so she would sit down to feed the baby and turn on the TV. What’s on TV at midday? Soap operas. So she started watching a soap opera as she fed the baby. Evidently, soap operas run into each other. One leads right into the next one. Pretty soon she was watching two shows, and then three. That’s a long time for a baby to keep getting fed!

After a while she said she realized she wasn’t doing this for the babies anymore. She was actually rearranging her schedule to make sure she could see those shows. She’d start thinking, “I’ll do ironing right now” or “I’ll clean up the kitchen,” and she’d make sure she was near the TV.

Suddenly she got connected to the lives of fictional characters. She became intimately interested in the lives of people who didn’t even exist! Then one day it hit her like a ton of bricks: “I am wasting my life! This does not make me a better woman or mother or wife. It has no redeeming value. I could be caring about people who do exist.”

Are you more interested in fictional people on TV than you are in Paul and Peter and the disciples and what God wants to do in your life? Do you invest your time in the shallow lives of people who fill celebrity magazines? Are you glued to ESPN from the moment you get home on Friday until Monday morning?

Are these things evil? No. Are they bad? No. But the question is not, “Is there anything wrong with it?” The question is, “Will it make me more like Jesus?”

What are some activities or habits that are not bad but aren’t God’s best for you?
