Hebrews 12:1-2

Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,

2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Hebrews 12:16-17

16 Lest there be any fornicator, or profane person, as Esau, who for one morsel of meat sold his birthright.

17 For ye know how that afterward, when he would have inherited the blessing, he was rejected: for he found no place of repentance, though he sought it carefully with tears.

Verse Of The Day

Hebrews 4:12

For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

Acts 20:35

35 I have shewed you all things, how that so labouring ye ought to support the weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, It is more blessed to give than to receive.

WALK IT OUT

It’s a brand new year with brand new opportunities! It’s a great time to refocus and reprioritize the things of God and His plans for your life in this season. The more you focus on the Lord: reading, praying, and studying the Word of God the more your desires will align with His will for your life and the more He can reveal and give to you. Seek the Lord and lay out your requests before Him, and trust that He will direct you and show you the way you should go. The Lord will bless you abundantly with the things that matter the most in your life which are spiritual and enduring even as you prosper in the natural. Remember not to become super focused on pursuing material gains that will ALL pass away while forsaking the pursuit of spiritual fruit in your life which is the most important for you and the body of Christ as a whole. Trust the Lord and trust the process as He leads and guides you from day to day. Unfortunately we live in a sin sick world, and will all have to deal with the negative influences and hurtful words and deeds of those around us who fail to walk in the Spirit and in obedience to the Word by choice or negligence. This is the day that the Lord has made so rejoice in it and give praise for all of the great things that lay before us! God is good and He is faithful to do exactly what He has promised each of us His children, so trust Him and never doubt. What you need God’s got it, so seek ye first the Kingdom of God that he can supply it for you and for me!

STAND ON THE WORD

Psalm 37:4-7

4 Delight thyself also in the Lord: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.

5 Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.

6 And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday.

7 Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass.

WALK IT OUT

Facing a difficult test on today? Find peace in the word. Praying for a miracle? Believe that God is still doing great things in your life and mine! Have a dire need? Know that God is your provider.  Stuck in a difficult situation and can’t see your way out?  Stand still and see the salvation of the Lord. God promised to do a new thing in the bible days, and He is still able to do so on today!!  Sad, broken, depressed, and/or oppressed? Look to the hills, because your help comes from God who sits high and looks low. He cares about you! He will never leave you nor forsake you! Trust Him and obey what He directs you to do, and everything will turn out right in due season!

You are more than a conqueror through Christ Jesus! No matter what you face on today go forth knowing Jesus is with you. You are not alone. The battle is not yours. Victory is yours!! Rejoice!!
