July 6th 2018 – Overcomer

“He who overcomes, I will grant to him to sit down with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne” (Revelation 3:21)

“For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith.” (John 5:4)

We are world overcomers not because of who we are or some great feat that we have accomplished, but because we are born of God.  When we made Jesus the Lord and Savior of our lives we were born into His family, the family of God.

All God says to us to do is believe it.  The second part of this verse states, this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith.  Our faith is our belief of Who God is, what He has and what He can do.  Our faith is our knowing that God is for us and not against us.  Our faith is our trust that He has made us world overcomers.  So again, it’s not about us but it’s about Christ in us, the hope of glory.

Today, see yourself as one who overcomes the world and not one who is overtaken by the world.  See yourself as the victorious one, because you are in Him.  Remember He lives inside of you.  Who lives inside of us?  The Greater One lives in you, the One who created the stars and every living thing, the One who died on the cross for you.  He didn’t die at Calvary’s hill for Himself, He did it all for you, and He wants you to partake of all that He paid for you to have.

Prayer:

Heavenly Father, Today, I am a world overcomer because of You who lives in me.  I believe this by faith. My faith is in trusting you God and believing that what you said is true. I am a world overcomer. Thank You Lord for loving me and being involved in my life. I pray this in Jesus’ name, Amen.

June 2nd 2017 – Lay it Down

“For if in anything I have boasted to him about you, I am not ashamed. But as we spoke all things to you in truth, even so our boasting to Titus was found true.” (2 Corinthians 7:14)

Are you carrying something around today that God never intended you to carry? The shame and guilt of each of our lives is one of the greatest burdens we hold, but often we are crushed by it because we refuse to put it down. Some of you may have awakened this morning to a flood of memories of past sins and evil intentions. Maybe it’s not something you did, but something someone did to you and you have held onto unforgiveness. Whatever the case may be, God desires to remove that burden of sin and shame from you and in return, give you new life.

(Matthew 11:28-30) “Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light.”

Shame and guilt will sink even the most powerful Christians, but even for the weakest believer, there is rest for their soul as they hand over their shame to Jesus. You see friend, when Jesus was on the cross, the Bible tells us that our shame was nailed up there with Him. All our evil thoughts, actions and words were placed there to be destroyed forever. When we ask Jesus to forgive us of our sins, He wipes those sins away along with the shame that is attached to them. Because of Jesus, we can lay down our guilt and shame never having to pick them up again.

“Lay it down at the foot of the cross..”

Prayet:

Heavenly Father, I know I have done wrong things, and I come today asking again for your forgiveness. Wipe away the sin and the shame that is with it. Help me to focus on You and the love You have for me. Fill me with Your Spirit so that I can encourage others to find rest in You. In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.
