I hope you are all enjoying the summer and the great things that come with it - sunshine, beach days, thriving gardens, getting outside and experiencing life to the full! I have an update on my summer in the works, which will be posted later this week. But I felt the need to share this today - it is too good to keep to myself! I am feeling the passion today, so bear with my preachin' below ;)
I get daily email encouragements from Joseph Prince Ministries, and today's was very powerful for me. I know it will also encourage you; the Word of God never returns void, so I know it will at least plant a seed in whomever has a chance to read it.
This devotional talks about how we need to be fighting FROM the place of Victory that Jesus has [already] secured us, instead of fighting FOR Victory in our lives. Fighting FOR Victory in our challenges is a waste of time and energy, because God has already taken care of it- He has the Victory and that work is finished because of what Jesus did on the Cross! I hope you take a couple minutes to read it and let it encourage you, and propel you forward in your life as another tool in your toolbelt for a life of following Christ :)
I thank God for the ways His word comes alive in this generation. He is not done with us yet; there are better days in store for each one of us! No matter what you are going through, choose to believe that there are greater things ahead for His Church and His people on the earth!
Jeremiah 29:11 (MSG): "I know what I'm doing. I have it all planned out—plans to take care of you, not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for."
Romans 8:37 (CEB): "But in all these things we win a sweeping victory through the one who loved us."
