Come Flourishing!

1 Cor.15:42-43 “…Our earthly bodies are planted in the ground when we die, but they will be raised to live forever.  Our bodies are buried in brokenness, but they will be raised in glory. They are buried in weakness, but they will be raised in strength.” (emphasis added).

I can imagine the scene; Jesus was taken to the cross and the disciples were thinking, “He told us last night that He would be alive, and we will come alive.” Instead, they saw Jesus crucified on the cross. They must have felt deflated, this was nothing like the great things they had imagined. Read the rest of this entry

New Day

1 Cor. 1:30 “…a clean slate and a fresh start come from God by way of Jesus Christ.” (MSG, emphasis added).

When we come into God’s presence, it is so important that we open our hearts to God, His Word, and to all that God is doing. Do not take it for granted that it will happen every time you come into God’s presence. Be deliberate about it. Read the rest of this entry

New Reality

To Change

Rom.12:2 “Don’t let the world squeeze you into its mould, but let God remake you so that your whole attitude of mind is changed.” (Phillips, paraphrased, emphasis added).

Today’s devotion begins with a question. What would you like to change about yourself? For those who are married, what will your spouse like to change about you? What difference can resurrection power make in your life? Read the rest of this entry

The Exchange V

Ps.126:1-2 (KJV) When the Lord turned again the captivity of Zion, we were like them that dream. Then was our mouth filled with laughter, and our tongue with singing: then said they among the heathen, The Lord hath done great things for them.

 

Yesterday, we said that when God wants to beautify, robe or crown someone, He puts a smile on his or her face. Smiling makes you beautiful. I pray that you will smile physically, you will smile spiritually, you will smile emotionally, and you will smile relationally in the Mighty Name of Jesus. Read the rest of this entry

The New, The Overflow

Luke 5:37-38 “And no one puts new wine into old wineskins. For the new wine would burst the wineskins, spilling the wine and ruining the skins. New wine must be stored in new wineskins.”

Get excited because God is taking away ‘The Old’ in order to establish ‘The New’. God is on your side and God is all that you need. For someone today, God Himself is giving you a new name. The Lord God is giving you a new name. Read the rest of this entry

How Well Not How Far

Heb. 12:1 “Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us.” (emphasis added)

 

Father, even before we dive into what You have for us today and over the next few days, we just want to thank You for Your presence. In Your presence, we are secure, we are safe, we find life, we find hope, we find joy, Read the rest of this entry
