DON’T FOLLOW THE MULTITUDE
Most (about 90%) of us are worried about the future. They are talking the wrong talks. They have conformed themselves to the world (which has nothing good to offer). So if the world (which has nothing good to offer) is suffering, they are suffering. If the economy is going down, they are going down with it. Romans 12:2 encourages us (as children of God, followers of Jesus Christ) to be transformed by the renewing of our minds. We are God’s people. We belong to Zion. All things are possible with God.
GOD IS YOUR FATHER
Have you seen a son of a president begging for job, food, cloth, accommodation, etc? Or worrying because he will be unemployed, hungry, naked, etc? O FAITHLESS GENERATION! Although the unemployment rate may be high, there may be famine, etc., they don’t affect him as the president’ son. Jesus said in Matthew 6: 25 that “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat, or drink; or about your body, what you will wear” The Creator of the universe is your Father. You are the son or daughter of the I AM. He knows what you need before you ask Him. The good news is He owns all things. If God is your Father, Jesus is your High Priest and the Holy Spirit is on the inside of you,Everything you would ever need in life has been made available. The Lord is your shepherd, you shall not want in life. Psalms 23.
FACE THE FUTURE WITH HOPE
Let us face the future with hope and a believing heart because the Light (JESUS) of the world has not been extinguished and cannot be extinguished.
Because He lives, we know that the future is bright. What you focus on magnifies. If you focus on your problems, they will magnify. I will advise you focus on Jesus; He is the Light that shines before us. Though the path ahead may be dark, He will shine before us. Hebrews 8:13 says Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. Paul said in Romans 8:31-32 that if God be for us, who can be against us? He (GOD) who didn’t spare His own son (JESUS), but gave Him (JESUS) up for us – how will He not also, alongside with Him (JESUS) graciously give us all things? It’s high time we stopped worrying about the future because God has already made the necessary provisions for us. Let us pray each day, asking the Lord to show us the way, the right way or path to succeed. Faithful is He who has called us. He will do it.
Satan wants to hinder us from enjoying God’s best for our lives. The next time he shows up in your life, trying to make you feel like you don’t qualify for God’s grace. To make you feel like you don’t qualify for a job, you don’t deserve that promotion. You won’t have a bright future. That sickness is going to kill you. Your friends are better than you, they are talented but you are not. You are poor, you can’t make it, etc., just tell him this “Satan, Jesus defeated you years ago. I belong to Jesus. You have no power over me. If Jesus hadn’t resurrected, the story would have been different. But Jesus rose from the dead. He has given me power over you. I am the bona fide property of The Most High God. No Weapon forged against me will prosper. Every tongue that rises against me is condemned. I am equipped with possibilities. And because He lives, I can do all things. I am talented. I am healed. I can get that job, that promotion. I am not poor because He was made poor so I can be rich. No man can curse me. I am the greatest person the world ever saw.” As you make such declaration, Satan will be paralyzed. He won’t have power over you. Just as the pilot controls the plane, Satan wants to control your life. Resist the devil and he shall flee you. If he comes through a person to talk you down, resist such person. It could be your spouse, friend, brother, sister, pastor, mother, father, etc.
BEST DAYS AHEAD
The life we live today is better than yesterday’s. And because He lives, the BEST Life is ahead of us. Quit worrying about those things you couldn’t do in the past life. The present is what you have. Make the right choices today to enjoy a better life tomorrow. Our life is not a mournful vigil over our sinful past and present. No, life is a hope – filled journey into God’s intended future. And Because He lives, we know that “death is no longer what defines life, but rather life (has become) what defines death.”
Because He lives, I can face tomorrow Because He lives, all fear is gone Because I know He holds the future, And life is worth the living, just because He lives
