FIGHT FOR THE LOVE OF YOUR LIFE
Let's Pray Before We Start:
Dear Heavenly Father
Lord, I ask that you be with me, leading and guiding me through whatever you have planned for me as I begin my devotional. I am aware that I am not where I used to be or where I would like to be, but what I do know is that I am in Your hands. I give this moment to You as I pray for my family and myself. I ask that you be with us through every trail and that seems unbearable. I know that your word tells me that no weapon formed against me shall prosper and that every word that rises up against me shall be condemned on the day of Judgement. Help me as I grow closer to you, to be more like Jesus, and less like the world I see. Please cover my family and I in Jesus' priceless blood. Give me a heart that will trust you with everything. I appreciate you and I love you.
Pease help me in this time as I draw close to you and become more like Jesus and less like the world that I see. Keep me and my family covered in the precious blood of Jesus. Give me a heart to believe all things in you. I love you and I thank you. I pray all this in Jesus Christ name Amen.
A RELATIONSHIP TO BELIEVE IN
This week, we focused on growing closer to God and developing a personal relationship with Him, but what does that actually mean? I am aware that we are supposed to study our Bibles, pray, fast, and do good deeds towards everyone, but in this day and age that we live in, these things can be quite difficult. When we look about, it looks like everything is bad, depressing, difficult, and a constant struggle. This is especially true once we are apart of the Kingdom of God, where life is supposed to be easier. God takes our relationship with Him very seriously, and so should we. There would be no hesitation in confronting, or at least desiring to confront, someone who disrespected someone in your family, this is how God is with us. All of this is being said because I mentioned yesterday that the devil, your enemy, prowls around like a roaring lion in looking for whom he may devour. Therefore, don't even believe for a second that Satan would ever allow you to have an intimate relationship with your heavenly Father; he won't allow it.
According to John 10:10, the devil's objective is to steal, kill, and destroy. Have any aspects of your life—health, fulfilling relationships, or time with your heavenly Father—seemed to have been stolen from you? Do your finances, career, dreams, or desire to advance in something you have your heart set on feel like they are dead or dying in your life? Do you feel like your plans to develop a business, relationship, raise your children well, have a wonderful marriage, or a relationship with the person you want to marry coming apart? Does anything you do seem to make sense?
The enemy is on your trail because he knows that the moment you decide to be who God has called you to be, it's game over for him and the kingdom of darkness. Yes, the devil's entire strategy is to steal, kill, and destroy, so if you're trying to find joy, peace, happiness, and to not be anxious or worried but can't seem to get there, guess what: the enemy is on your tail. I'm here to encourage you in fighting for your goals. Keep going because God is with you and He won't abandon you or leave you. We focus on fasting because it brings us nearer to the Lord our Father. Trust in the love that was intended specifically for you.
Give it to God if this week has seemed like an incredibly difficult one to get through and you feel like the world is on your shoulders. Take five minutes each day to take deep breaths in and out, exhale and inhale, and as you do this, think on the things that are good, lovely, and true as a challenge to yourself to get closer to God. You can make a difference in your life and the lives of your family by telling yourself that you are more than enough, God has your back, you are not alone, and God is not angry with you. I am the righteousness in Christ Jesus. These affirmations are true, not just something to get you through. It's possible that you haven't been paying attention to things like this, but God sees you, He knows your thoughts, feelings, and circumstances, and He wants you to know that you can put your trust in Him because He has brought you this far and will do so again. You owe you just five minutes of your time.
3 Scriptures To Mediate On And Questions To Ask Yourself
2 Corinthians 5:21
Reflection of the week:
Consider these verses as a reminder of how crucial it is to spend time alone with the Father. You should use this opportunity to talk to God, pray, and seek his help with whatever troubles you may be experiencing. Keep your focus on the Lord because you are His vessel and He is your provider and defender.
Scripture #1: What is the enemy trying to steal from you?
John 10:10 (KJV)
The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.
Scripture #2: Will you mediate on whatever is good and true?
Philippians 4:8 (KNIV)
Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—mediate on these things.
Scripture #3: Do you believer that Christ died so that you can become the righteousness Of God?
2 Corinthians 5:21 (KNIV)
For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.
We all have worries and thoughts that negatively impact us. I made the decision to start and embrace a journey that I think God has given me to do to inspire others. Allow God to influence your ideas so that you can fulfill your calling. Whatever it is will have an effect on both you and other people. Don't let the enemy take away from you the gift or ability you have. Don't let him kill that what's on the inside of you nor destroy your future plans for living amazing and have an incredible intimate relationship with your Father in heaven.
