I want to take this time to encourage you to stand on the word of God. Your breakthrough is on the way. Remember it is always darkest just before dawn. God has promised us that joy will come in the morning. At midnight it is still dark outside, but at a minute after midnight it is a brand new day. The condition looks the same, but you have started a new day. That’s why we walk by faith and not by sight. Know that God is working it out for your good and His glory just like he promised in His word.
In this life we are going to face some heartache, disappointment, lost, and setbacks. We are even going to have some negative thoughts that pop in our head from time to time. We must always remember that the battle is in our head. When negative thoughts, disappointment, heartache, or loss comes our way; we must learn to stand on God’s promises. In order to stand on His promises we must first know His promises. So I ask are you studying the word of God? Do you know the promises He has made to you ?
When life starts to get you down remember who you are in Christ.
In the bible the living word of God, it teaches us that we are:
Chosen (Revelations 17:14)
Loved (Galatians 2:20)
Adopted (Ephesians 1:5)
Forgiven (1John 2:12)
Redeemed (Isaiah 44:22)
Complete (Colossians 2:10)
Strong (Romans 4:20)
Warriors (2Chronicles 11:1)
Solider (2 Timothy 2:3)
Confident (2 Corinthians 5:8)
Perfected (1 John 4:12)
Remember that feeling are just feelings they are not right or wrong. They are just what you feel at the time. Your feelings and emotions change constantly. You can’t base who you are on how you feel. Instead base it on who God said you are. Don’t let the things others say about you, define who you are. You are who God said you are, and you can do what God said you can do. We can do all things through Christ who strengthens us.
As you face today know that God loves you and is dwelling inside you, walking beside you, as well as going before you providing a way. Understand that God is in your midnight leading you into a brand new day. Remember joy comes in the morning…..
Be encouraged your breakthrough is on the way. God has a blessing and it is coming your way.
To God Be The Glory In All Things
