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

To Cancel

2 Cor.5:17 “This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. ‘he old life is gone; a new life has begun!”

How does this resurrection power benefit me? Over the next few days, God Himself will unpack this truth and help us see clearly the difference resurrection power makes in our lives. The first thing is, Resurrection Power Is The Power To Cancel Your Past. Read the rest of this entry

Same Power

Rom. 8:11The Spirit of God, who raised Jesus from the dead, lives in you. And just as God raised Christ Jesus from the dead, he will give life to your mortal bodies by this same Spirit living within you.”

Jesus is alive and for us, this is worthy of celebrating every single day. Jesus is alive and it is a big deal. John 14:19 In just a little while the world will no longer see Me, but you’re going to see Me because I am alive and you’re about to come alive!” (MSG, emphasis added). Read the rest of this entry

Freed

Rom. 3:23-24 “For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard. Yet God, in his grace, freely makes us right in his sight. He did this through Christ Jesus when he freed us from the penalty for our sins.” (emphasis added).

Being a Christian is summed up in one word and that word is “Done”. It is because of what Christ has done that we can do what He has called us to do! We stand tall not on the authority of our dos [prayers, giving, serving], but on the authority of the complete work of Jesus on the cross of Cavalry. Read the rest of this entry

Much BIGGER!

Eph.3:20 (TPT) “Never doubt God’s mighty power to work in you and accomplish all this. He will achieve infinitely more than your greatest request, your most unbelievable dream, and exceed your wildest imagination! He will outdo them all…”

 

Imagine that what God offers us is more stunning than anything we could dream of. God says He can do infinitely more than we can ever think or imagine, bigger than all our what ifs’ put together. The beauty of Christianity is this, Read the rest of this entry

Purposeful

Deut.7:6 “For you are a holy people, who belong to the Lord your God. Of all the people on earth, the Lord your God has chosen you to be his own special treasure.”

 

You would hardly hear Christians refer to themselves as holy. I have never heard it and I have been saved for more than twenty years. The word holy intimidates us meanwhile it is God’s big picture for us. Holy just means set apart. God wants to move us from where we are currently to where He wants us to be.

Winning Side

Ps.126:1-3 (MSG) “It seemed like a dream, too good to be true, when God returned Zion’s exiles. We laughed, we sang, we couldn’t believe our good fortune. We were the talk of the nations—“God was wonderful to them!” God was wonderful to us; we are one happy people.”

Ps.126:2-3 “We were filled with laughter, and we sang for joy. And the other nations said, “What amazing things the Lord has done for them.” Yes, the Lord has done amazing things for us! What joy!” (emphasis added). Read the rest of this entry

The Fire

Acts 2:1&3 (TPT) “On the day Pentecost was being fulfilled, all the disciples were gathered in one place. Then all at once a pillar of fire appeared before their eyes. It separated into tongues of fire that engulfed each one of them.”

1 Kings 18:38Immediately the fire of the Lord flashed down from heaven and burned up the young bull, the wood, the stones, and the dust…” As the fire of God falls in this season, God’s fire is not going to consume our sacrifice Read the rest of this entry

Aflame

1 Kings 18:38 “Immediately the fire of the Lord flashed down from heaven” (emphasis added)

This season, the fire from God will flash from heaven into your situation, in the Mighty Name of Jesus. It will, the fire will come! Read the rest of this entry

No Match

Ex.15:11 (ERV) “Are there any gods like the Lord? No, there are no gods like you—you are wonderfully holy! You are amazingly powerful!  You do great miracles!

This is Baal – 1 Kings 18:26-28 “So they prepared one of the bulls and placed it on the altar. Then they called on the name of Baal from morning until noontime, shouting, “O Baal, answer us!” But there was no reply of any kind. Then they danced, hobbling around the altar they had made.
