The Greatest Love of All by Joel Osteen

And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.
1 Corinthians 13:13, NKJV

TODAY'S WORD:

In our culture today, so many people are confused about what love is. We love pizza, movies and sports, but we also love our family and spouse. If we look to the Word of God, we see God’s definition of love. First Corinthians 13 tells us that “love is patient and kind. It does not envy, nor boast. It is not proud. It is not rude. It does not seek its own way, is not easily angered, and keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not rejoice in evil, but rejoices in the truth. Love believes, hopes and endures. Love never fails.” This is how God responds to us, and this is how we should respond to the people in our lives—with patience, kindness, hope, humility and love. Scripture tells us that God is love, and His character never changes!

Today and every day, know that God loves you with an everlasting love. He will never leave you nor forsake you. He is for you and has a good plan for you. Receive His perfect love today and let Him transform you from the inside out. His love is the greatest love and will last throughout all eternity!

PRAYER FOR TODAY:

Father, thank You for loving me. Thank You for doing a work in my life. Help me to be more like You. Help me to see others the way You see them and respond in love because You are love. I bless You and honor You today in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Attitude Is Everything by Joyce Meyer
..He [can be trusted] not to let you be tempted and tried and assayed beyond your ability and strength of resistance and power to endure, but with the temptation He will [always] also provide the way out (the means of escape to a landing place), that you may be capable and strong and powerful to bear up under it patiently.

— 1 Corinthians 10:13 (AMPC)

Some of the challenges we face in life may be very difficult ones, but God never allows more temptation to come upon us than we can bear. In fact, with every temptation, He always provides a way out.

The scripture above not only says He provides a way out, but it also says He gives us the strength to bear up under trials with patience. That means we can go through them with a good attitude! Maintaining a good attitude in the midst of something unpleasant is the key to victory, and it enables us to enjoy the journey.

Prayer Starter: Lord, thank You for being with me through all of life’s difficulties. Help me today to keep a good attitude, knowing You are working on my behalf behind the scenes. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

The Home Team by John Hagee
1 John 2:14
I have written to you, fathers, because you have known Him who is from the beginning. I have written to you, young men, because you are strong, and the word of God abides in you, and you have overcome the wicked one

Fathers, God has a plan and a purpose for each one of you! Those on “the home team” need you, our “most valuable players,” more than ever before. Fathers, your children need you.

Your children need to see you loving God with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength (Mark 12:30). Your sons need you. They need a real-life example of how a man of God lives his life with integrity. They need for someone to demonstrate a strong work ethic, to tell them that diligence is worth the effort, to exhibit the honor in providing for and loving your family well.

Your daughters need you. They need your tender embrace, to know that your arms are a place to find confidence, comfort, and strength. They need you to show them how real men love and respect their wives, how they protect their household.

Your church needs you. It needs your dedication to the Lord, the boldness of a man committed to Jesus Christ. Your community needs the power of your testimony and your genuine desire to elevate those around you.

God in heaven needs you. He needs for you to recognize that He never intended for you to bear the load on your own. When the weight of responsibility is too heavy to carry, He needs for you to trust Him with it. Cast all your cares upon Him, and He will carry the burden that bows you low.

Fathers, we respect you. We love you. We need you.

Blessing:

Heavenly Father, thank You for showing me what a good Father looks like. Thank You for loving me so deeply that I cannot comprehend it. Thank You for being my strength when I feel weak. Thank You for patience and forgiveness when I fail. Thank You for power to be like You. In the name of Jesus…amen.

Do Fathers Really Matter? by Dr. Charles Stanley
Deuteronomy 6:1-9

Families are struggling today, and this has been happening for decades. Although there are many theories as to why, the best solution is found in God’s Word. After all, He designed the family to be the foundational unit of society, and He knows best how it should operate. No family goes without hardship, but God’s principles can help people navigate those ups and downs in a way that glorifies Him.

Scripture clearly teaches that the Lord has entrusted headship in the home to the husband and father (1 Corinthians 11:3). This doesn’t mean that men are superior or more spiritual than women (Gal. 3:27-28); it simply shows that God, in His sovereign wisdom, has given them different roles.  Even though our culture may find this offensive, it doesn’t change God’s ordained order, nor does it excuse fathers who abdicate this role.

According to Scripture, the father’s responsibility is to lead his family physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Most dads work hard to provide for material needs, and many give the family adequate time and love. But how many are diligent to lead spiritually?

Dads are responsible for teaching their children to read Scripture and pray, as well as for modeling righteousness. Wives and churches contribute to the spiritual training of children, too, but fathers will be held accountable to the Lord for spiritual leadership.

Although this assignment is daunting, God has provided both His Spirit and His Word to guide and empower dads to accomplish it. When fathers take their rightful place, family relationships will improve.

You Are Who God Says You Are by Jerry Savelle
I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; marvelous are Your works, and that my soul knows very well (Psalm 139:14 NKJV).

God has made each one of us in His image, perfectly designed with an identity ideally suited to accomplishing all He has called us to do.

However, most of us do not reach adulthood with this identity intact. Instead, we form an image of ourselves based on information we’ve received from our parents, peers, and circumstances.

Perhaps, like many, you were told you were stupid. Or maybe you were rejected by your peers because you looked different or failed in some way. If this is the kind of information you used to form your identity, then you will likely see yourself as a failure.

By taking on that false identity of a failure, you will surely live your life in defeat. You can pray to God all you want, asking Him to change your circumstances, but until you change your identity nothing is going to change.

Jesus Christ came to give you a new identity. He died and rose again to give you His identity. It is only in Him that you will discover the identity God intended you to have from the beginning of time.

In Him you have been made the wisdom of God. You have status with God and man, and you are a winner in every situation in life. In Him you are a champion, not because of anything you did, but because of what God freely did for you in Christ.

God says you are in Christ; therefore, every one of the 130 “in Christ” scriptures is talking about you. Determine today to throw off the old identity that is holding you back, and be who God says you are!

Confession: I am not who people say I am. I am not who circumstances say I am. I am not who my past says I am, and I am not even who I think I am. I am who God says I am!

The Head And Body Are One by Joseph Prince
Colossians 1:18

And He is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things He may have the preeminence.

God’s Word says that Christ is the head and we the church are His body. So Christ and the church are one. Christ and you are one! You cannot say that God sees Christ the head perfect but His body imperfect. Or that Christ is accepted but His body not accepted. The measure of Jesus’ acceptance with God is the measure of your acceptance with God!

So it makes no sense to say that the head is well but the body sick, that the head is rich but the body in lack, or that the head is at rest but the body full of stress. My friend, what Jesus is before God, you His body are. As He is, so are you in this world (see 1 John 4:17)!

Today, God wants you to lay claim on Christ being your head. Start believing that all His perfections, and the delight and joy that He brings to the Father’s heart, He has set to your account. And you will begin to realize that as Jesus is a sweet-smelling aroma to the Father, so are you!

The more you begin to see that you are one with Christ, the more you will realize that whatever you need right now, He is dispensing to you. If you are sick in your body, Christ your head imparts His health and healing to you. If you lack wisdom, Christ your head freely imparts His wisdom to you. If you have any lack, Christ your head gives you His exceeding riches.

Beloved, have this rich revelation that Christ and you are one. You can never be separated from Christ your head from whom comes all the supply for your body—all the power, wisdom, provision and health. So declare, “As He is, so am I in this world!”

You Have Enough Time by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome
And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpiller, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you (Joel 2:25).

As a Christian, when you give yourself to the study of the Word and fellowship with the Holy Spirit, evident changes begin to manifest in your life. These changes should immediately reflect in your lifestyle, especially your speech, your communication.

True Christian maturity is the ability to speak correctly or wholesomely, in line with the Word, irrespective of the situation. For example, if you needed to get somewhere or complete a project and the time limit you’re given is closing in, don’t panic or get into a frenzy. Don’t start lamenting and complaining that you don’t have time. Don’t cut your time short with your words. Keep your composure. The God who lives in you is the owner of time.

Read our opening verse again and observe what the Lord said. He’s a restorer of time. He restores wasted years, which means He can restore wasted months, wasted weeks, wasted days, wasted hours, wasted minutes, wasted seconds, and wasted moments. Hallelujah!

So, don’t panic because of time. When you panic, you take actions in fear, and fear is of the devil. As long as you’re panicking, you can’t have a miracle. So, refuse to panic for “lack of time.” 1 Kings 18:46 explains how Elijah was transported by the Spirit of God to outrun horses. Philip was transported by the Spirit of God to another city, faster than any supersonic jet of our day (Acts 8:39-40).

Always remember that you’re not an ordinary person. You live a miracle life; whatever amount of time there is, is what you need! And because you live a miracle life—the supernatural life—if the task or project you’re on requires an hour, you can do it in a shorter time. Have this consciousness.

Every so often, say to yourself, “I have enough time in life to be all that God has destined me to be, and to do all He’s called me to do and finish my course.” Hallelujah!

Open Heavens: Watch Your Back! by Pastor E.A Adeboye
Sunday June 16th 2019
Memorise: Continue in prayer, and watch in the same with thanksgiving; Colossians 4:2

Read: 1st Peter 5:5-11 (KJV)
5 Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble.
6 Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:
7 Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.
8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:
9 Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.
10 But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you.
11 To him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.

Message
Watchfulness means to be alert and expectant as you monitor someone or something in your care, or as you await the arrival of someone important or a significant event.

To be watchful is to be alert to things around you as you live your daily life. The Bible warns us to be vigilant by closely watching the activities of the devil, mortifying all vulnerabilities to temptation, looking out for the enemy’s wily attacks and being ever prepared for the return of our Lord Jesus Christ. Our watchfulness should begin with the words of Proverbs 4:23, which says:

“Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.”

The Holy Spirit refers to this as renewing the mind in Romans 12:2, which is best done by filling our minds with the undiluted word of God (Hebrews 4:12). Having set a watch over the thoughts and imaginations of our hearts, we then need to bridle our tongue in order not to sin with it (James 1:26, 1st Peter 3:10). Finally, 1st Peter 4:7 says:

“But the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer.”

As Christians in these last days, we are called to watch unto prayers more than ever before.

Why do we need to be watchful? The Holy Spirit answers this in 1st Peter 5:8, which says:

“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour.”

Let us follow the example of our Lord, who took the need to be watchful seriously in the last hour before His sufferings began. Knowing what was about to happen to Him, He was so sorrowful and decided to take His disciples to have a private moment at the Garden of Gethsemane. It was at this retreat that Jesus gave His disciples the sure antidote to temptation. He said in Matthew 26:41:
“Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.”

We are therefore called to be alert to dangers which can erode and shipwreck our faith in Christ such as false teachings, worldliness, love of money, inordinate ambition, sinful pleasure, sexual immorality and all other works of the flesh. Complacency or failure to watch can be very dangerous indeed. It led to the sudden death of Abel, who was killed by a brother who spoke peacefully with him in one minute but rose up to kill him in the next (Genesis 4:8). Sanballat and Tobiah, the enemies of the Jews, would have successfully terminated Nehemiah’s building project if not for watchfulness (Nehemiah 4). I pray that God will expose every activity of the enemy in your life and family today in Jesus’ Name.

Prayer Point
Father, as You did with Elisha, help me to always be one step ahead of my enemies, in Jesus’ Name (2nd Kings 6:8-12)

A Beautiful White Horse by Deborah Waldron Fry
In a vision, I saw a beautiful white horse, "champing at the bit." :D
"Beloved. Get ready, get ready, get ready. It is time to run with the Horses. I have been training you, My Child. You are like a war horse made ready for battle. 

Through all of your trials, you have learned to laugh at fear. You have learned through many trials that I will NEVER leave nor forsake you. Because of all that I have brought you through, you are now afraid of nothing and no one. You know that your victory lies in Me. You are refined as pure gold. You rejoice in My Strength and you do not hesitate to use My Sword. You in Me and I in you.

We are a fearsome team, Beloved. You are greatly feared by the enemy because My Holy Spirit dwells in you. I reveal to you My plans straight from My War Room. I give you feet like hind's feet, to tread upon the high places. On your War Horse of the Spirit, so shall you run. You shall run and not be weary, like a FIRE consuming the stubble. You shall run through every troop set against you and LEAP over every obstacle! NO weapon can EVER succeed against you, My Child. Laugh at that spirit of fear. He FLEES in My Presence! For it is not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit, says the Lord of Hosts. Run, My Child, run into My PURE freedom! Run, My majestic one, run in the beauty of My Holiness and set the captives free!

"Champing at the bit": Eagerly awaiting in an impatient way to do something
...Proverbs 32:30 No wisdom, no understanding, no counsel can avail against the Lord. 31The horse is made ready for the day of battle, but the victory belongs to the Lord.

...Psalm 18:29 For by You I can run against a troop, and by my God I can leap over a wall.
...Job 39:19 “Do you give the horse his might? Do you clothe his neck with a mane? 20 Do you make him leap like the locust? His majestic snorting is terrifying. 21 He paws in the valley and exults in his strength; he goes out to meet the weapons. 22 He laughs at fear and is not dismayed; he does not turn back from the sword. 23 Upon him rattle the quiver, the flashing spear, and the javelin. 24 With fierceness and rage he swallows the ground; he cannot stand still at the sound of the trumpet. 25 When the trumpet sounds, he says ‘Aha!’ He smells the battle from afar, the thunder of the captains, and the shouting.

...Revelation 19:11 Then I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse! The One sitting on it is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war. 12 His eyes are like a flame of fire, and on His head are many diadems, and He has a name written that no one knows but Himself. 13He is clothed in a robe dipped in blood, and the name by which He is called is The Word of God. 14And the armies of heaven, arrayed in fine linen, white and pure, were following him on white horses.

Faithful Companion by Tammy Lang Jensen
For behold, darkness will cover the earth and deep darkness the people; but the Lord will rise upon you and his glory will appear upon you (Isaiah 60:2)....

The Lord keeps speaking the above scripture to me. I see a young boy standing between two trees in a dark forest. He has a flashlight in his hand, and he looks pleased as he turns it on and sees that it is working. God is still the light, fire and glory in your midst. He is the way-maker and chain-breaker, a Faithful companion that sticks closer than a brother. Greater love has no man than this that a man lay down his life for his friend (John 15:13).

When the deep darkness comes, will you lay down your life or run for your life. You will need a warriors cry and a heart for your mother, brother, friend. I hear many in the body crying for help. The Lord brought me to this scripture. You have said, I am overwhelmed with trouble! Haven’t I had enough pain already? And now the Lord has added more! I am worn out from sighing and can find no rest (Jeremiah 45:3).

The Lord said to remind you, he is not a hard task master, as some think hard. He is preparing you in this season of process. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything (James 1:4). Bringing you to the completion of who you are called to be, fulfilling your whole purpose. But I have raised you up for this very purpose, that I might show you my power and that my name might be proclaimed in all of the earth (Exodus 9:16)....

You are a living Epistle, you are my eloquent writing to the world. Let the world see and understand who I am through you!
You are my writing on the wall for the whole world to see....

Hang On by Kenneth Copeland
So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.

Isaiah 55:11

Did you know that the battleground for the problem you’re facing right now is in your mind and on your lips? If you’ll hit the devil with the Word and cast the care of the situation over on God, you’ll win.

Let me warn you though, hanging on to the Word isn’t always easy. The devil knows that if he doesn’t steal it from you, you’ll use it to enforce his defeat.

So don’t be surprised when he sends an evil spirit to exalt itself against the Word of God. If you’re sick, he may begin to tell you, “You’re not healed. You know that healing’s not for today. Even if it were, it wouldn’t work for you. It might work for someone else but not you.”

If he starts to tell you that kind of thing, don’t buy it! Don’t start worrying around about it and thinking, Oh my, I’m afraid I’m not going to get healed. I sure don’t feel healed. Why, I’m probably going to just get worse and worse....

Remember this: It’s the Word that does the work, not the one holding on to it. It’ll work for anyone who’ll put it to work. It’ll work for you just like it worked for Jesus when He walked the earth.

He told Satan, “It is written!” No matter what the devil tries to tell you, refuse to let go of the Word. Tell him what is written concerning your situation. Let the Word fight its own fight. It’ll whip the devil every time.

Look Deeply by Billy Graham
Open my eyes to see wonderful things in your Word.
—Psalm 119:18 (TLB)

Some, who doubt that the Bible is the true Word of God, doubt it because they are unwilling to ascribe to God anything they cannot themselves achieve.

If you have any uncertainty about the inspiration of the Bible, go back and look at it again. Look at it in the light of a person who has been staring at a mud puddle all his life, and who is confronted for the first time by a view of the ocean!

Perhaps you are only now catching your first glimpse of God’s unlimited power. Perhaps you are only now beginning to understand Him for what He actually is. For if God is the Spirit that Jesus declares Him to be, there is no problem of providence, there is no problem of His sovereignty in the affairs of men, there is no problem of His inspiration of the men who wrote the Bible. Everything fits into place, once you understand who and what God really is.

How can you know the Bible is true? Here are 5 reasons to believe what it says.

The Bible helps us know God better, but how should you approach reading and understanding it?

Jesus Came for the Brokenhearted by Rick Warren
“He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted” (Luke 4:18 NKJV).

Any idea where the phrase “broken heart” comes from?
It comes from the Bible and is thousands of years old. In Psalm 69:20, David said: “Scorn has broken my heart and has left me helpless” (NIV).

David wrote about it centuries ago, but doctors say it’s a medical reality. When you go through a traumatic event, your brain releases chemicals to deal with it, and some of those chemicals actually weaken the tissue of the heart. It’s called broken heart syndrome.

What causes a broken heart? Here are some of the most common ways our hearts get broken:

We get disappointed because things don’t turn out as we’ve planned.
We’re rejected by someone we love or someone we think loves us.
We resent others by holding on to past hurts.
But here’s some amazing news. It doesn’t matter what you call a broken heart or how you got it; Jesus can help. In fact, in Jesus’ very first sermon, he says it’s one of the reasons he came.

Whether you’ve been let down by disappointment, rejection, or resentment, Jesus came to heal your heart.

Jesus said about the Father, “He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted” (Luke 4:18 NKJV).

If you’ve been hurt, God wants to help. The Bible says in Psalm 147:3, “[God] heals the heartbroken and bandages their wounds” (The Message).

You’re never closer to God than when you’re hurting. He’s here to help.

Will you let him?

Release Your Cares and Rest by Joel Osteen
"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest."
Matthew 11:28, NIV

TODAY'S WORD:

God wants to give you rest to refresh and restore your soul—your mind, will and emotions. It’s so easy to get caught up in the “busyness” of life, and before long, your mind, will and emotions are so “spun up” that you can barely think straight! But even in the rush of life, you can find rest, ease and relaxation. God wants you to enjoy your life. That’s why He tells us to come to Him. God wants to take care of everything that concerns you so that you can find rest in your inner person.

Imagine how you would feel if someone came up to you today and said, “Give me all of your monthly bills. I’m going to pay them.” You’d get pretty excited, wouldn’t you? But it wouldn’t happen until you did your part to actually hand that person your bills. They can’t pay them for you if you never release them. In the same way, when we release our cares and concerns to God, He promises to take care of them.

Today, choose to release your cares to the Lord. Let Him fill you with His peace and joy. Receive the rest that He promises and enjoy the fulfillment and blessing He has for you!

PRAYER FOR TODAY:

Father in heaven, today I humbly come to You. I choose to cast my cares on You so that I can live in Your rest. Thank You for Your goodness to me. Help me find ways to share Your goodness with those around me today in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Fear Not by Joyce Meyer
No man shall be able to stand before you all the days of your life. Just as I was with Moses, so I will be with you. I will not leave you or forsake you.

— Joshua 1:5

I have heard it said there are 365 references to "fear not" in the Bible. I know there are at least 355, according to Dake's Annotated Reference Bible, one "fear not" for almost every day of the year.

Do you really want to obey the scriptures and "fear not"? If so, you will be in good company because every person in the Bible who was ever used by God to any degree was told over and over by Him, "Fear not."

One of those people was Joshua. Joshua, the man God chose to follow Moses, had a big job ahead of him: to lead the children of Israel into the Promised Land.

God wasn't telling Joshua to be like Moses, but that He would be to Joshua what He had been to Moses. God would not fail or forsake Joshua. He was saying, "Fear not, Joshua, I will be with you!"

When God tells you He will be with you, that means no matter what the circumstances are like, everything will work out all right because God will never fail you or forsake you.

Prayer Starter: Lord, I lift up all of my fears, worries and concerns to You right now. I choose to believe Your Word—that You will never leave or forsake me. Because of You, I don’t have to fear. Help me to keep moving forward, knowing You are with me every step of the way. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

The Revelation by John Hagee
As the Father loved Me, I also have loved you; abide in My love

From Genesis through Revelation, God demonstrates His deep desire to be with us. How amazing that the Creator of the universe longs to spend time with us.

In Genesis, God lovingly fashioned Adam from the dust of the ground and breathed His own breath into him (Genesis 2:7). As He molded Adam and Eve, He formed them in His own image. He wanted us to recognize Him, to relate to Him. In the garden of perfection that He had created just for them.

If you are longing for fellowship with God Almighty, if you are reaching for Him, He is reaching back to you. The eyes of the Lord run to and fro across the earth; He wants to show Himself strong on behalf of those who are loyal to Him (II Chronicles 16:9).

Be careful not to confuse His longing with any sort of need. God does not need us. He is all-sufficient unto Himself. He needs nothing from anyone. How awe-inspiring that He wants us! He desires to spend time with us, to communicate with us, to revel in our presence just as we revel in His.

From the beginning through the end, God has shown us over and over, with deep love and faithful promises, that He longs to be with us. Whisper His name, and He is there. At your lowest point, He stands beside you. In your moments of quiet joy, He is there. Embrace the wonder – God wants you.

Blessing:

Heavenly Father, I am once again in awe of You. Thank You for creating me, for searching for this lost lamb, and for bringing me into Your fold. Your desire to spend time with me reminds me that I am loved. I am valuable. I am worth knowing. Because You say so. May I seek out Your presence every day. In the name of Jesus…amen.

Unity in the Body by Dr. Charles Stanley
Ephesians 4:1-6

The church of Jesus Christ is truly unique: It is composed of people from countless backgrounds, who have a variety of opinions on many different topics—yet they are one in Christ. As believers indwelt by the Holy Spirit, we all belong to God’s family and have a special relationship with one another. We are spiritual brothers and sisters who are called by our heavenly Father to live in harmony.

Unity in the church occurs when God’s children live in submission to the Holy Spirit and let Him control their attitudes, emotions, words, and actions. When the Spirit rules each one, the goal becomes to please Him in our interactions with others instead of demanding our own way. This is necessary if we hope to “walk in a manner worthy of [our] calling” (Eph. 4:1).

Some Christians try to function independently because that’s easier than living in humility, gentleness, and patience with fellow believers. But we need each other. The fellowship of believers is an important part of God’s design for our spiritual growth.

Unity in the church requires a willingness to yield to each other for the sake of our spiritual family. This kind of self-sacrifice is fueled by genuine love, which unselfishly acts for the good of another (agape in Greek). It’s the glue that keeps the body of Christ together and enables us to live in harmony (Col. 3:14). When we hold tightly to God’s words and are knitted together in love, we honor Jesus Christ and have a strong defense against divisions and factions.

From Trial to Testimony by Jerry Savelle
My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience (James 1:2-3 NKJV).

Did you know two people can go through exactly the same circumstance and see the situation completely differently? A victory-minded person will see every trial as an opportunity to apply the Word of God and create a testimony of victory. A defeat-minded person will see a trial as yet another problem to struggle through in life.

Winners never see tests and trials; all they see are opportunities. Others who are looking on may think they are going through hard times, but winners don’t see it that way.

God’s will is that every trial is turned into an opportunity to bring increase to you in some way. He wants you to come out of every trial with the advantage. It is never God’s will that the devil succeeds against you.

The Bible says, “And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose” (Romans 8:28 NKJV). When you are walking in love with God—following His plan and purpose for your life—you can face every negative situation with complete confidence. You know God will turn the tables as you exercise your faith in His Word.

The Bible says, “What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?” (Romans 8:31-32 NKJV).

It is always God’s will that you turn each trial you face into a testimony of victory. When you accept the fact that God plans for you to benefit and increase in every negative situation, you can face your trials with joy. You can walk through anything with joy, knowing that the outcome will be a testimony to the goodness of God.

Confession: I walk by faith, confident that God works out every trial and situation for my good. I walk in complete and total victory, knowing I am called according to God’s purpose.

Condemnations The Root Cause by Joseph Prince
Romans 8:1, NASB

Therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.

When you have a plant with sickly leaves, it would be foolish to just treat the leaves without knowing the root cause of the problem. Similarly, when “leaves” of sickness, poverty and destructive habits start sprouting in your life, you need to know what the root cause is.

Experts will tell you that it is stress. They may go a little deeper and say that it is fear—fear of the future, of rejection, of loss, of death and so on. But is fear really the root? Or is there something deeper than fear?

The Bible shows us that the most fundamental cause of problems in our lives is condemnation. With condemnation comes fear. Fear then induces stress which brings about the symptoms of the curse.

This is what happened to Adam. Long before he faced poverty, sickness and eventually death, he had stress. Because of his sin, God told him, “In the sweat of your face you shall eat bread till you return to the ground” (Genesis 3:19). Sweat speaks of stress. But before there was stress, there was fear because Adam told God, “I heard Your voice in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; and I hid myself” (Genesis 3:10).

But what made Adam fearful? Adam only feared when, seeing his nakedness, he realized that he had sinned against God. He felt so ashamed and condemned that he hid himself. God then asked him, “Who told you that you were naked?” (Genesis 3:11). There was no one else in the garden other than Adam and Eve, so we know that it was probably the devil who told Adam that he was naked.

My friend, condemnation is the root cause of the symptoms of the curse manifesting in your life. That is why you need to know that at the cross, God took all your sins, put them on Jesus and unleashed the full fury of His wrath against them until Jesus cried out, “It is finished!”

All your sins have been completely punished in the body of Christ who was condemned for you. The root cause of all your problems has been dealt with. This means that the devil cannot enforce the curse in your life apart from your receiving condemnation. So come to the place of no condemnation and no sick leaves will sprout in your life!
