Think BIG...

Don't think small when you pray. God has a way to bring your dreams to pass if you'll dare to be bold enough to ask. His resources and abilities are unlimited, so dream big! The victories you’ve had in your past are not even going to compare to the incredible victories God has for you in your future. It's time to expect bigger and better things

"For the Lord your God is going with you! He will fight for you against your enemies, and He will give you victory!" (Deuteronomy 20:4).

Dont be a slave.......

2 Peter 2:19 says, "You are a slave to whatever controls you." You can be a slave to a bad attitude, a slave to worry, a slave to lust, a slave to food. In the scope of your destiny, it's a small thing to let a bad temper control you. It's a small thing to let fear or worry control you. Your destiny is too great. Your assignment is too important. Your future is too bright to let something small hold you back. How do we resist temptation? In Matthew 26:41 Jesus said, "Pray that you don't enter into the temptation." Notice He didn't say, "Pray that you'll never be tempted." "God, please don't let me have a negative thought. God, please don't ever let me have a wrong desire." That's not realistic. He said, "Pray that you don't enter into the temptation." The reason many people keep giving in to the same thing year after year is because they never ask God for His help. We can't overcome temptation on our own or break addictions in our own strength. We need God's help. We have to humble ourselves and say, "God, I don't want to be critical and sour. Help me to have a good attitude." "God, my mouth keeps getting me into trouble. Help me to bite my tongue and not say things that I shouldn't." "God, I don't want to watch the wrong things. I don't want to pollute my mind." If you ask God to help you, He will give you the strength to overcome.

Today, I encourage you to make up your mind that things can be different. This is a new day, and you don't have to give in to the same old temptations. The enemy doesn't have any new tricks. He's going to keep pushing those same buttons. But if you will dig your heels in and stand strong, even if the temptation doesn't go away, God will give you the strength to overcome it. You don't have to be a slave to self-pity, a slave to a bad attitude, or a slave to an addiction. God created us to be free, and today is your day of freedom! Call on the name of the Lord and He will help you. He will strengthen you and empower you to overcome so you can live the life of victory He has in store for you!

Value every moment

Teach us to number our days aright, that we may gain a heart of wisdom”

(Psalm 90:12, NIV)

Sometimes, our days can be so full and busy that we forget how precious and fragile life here on earth really is. It can be so easy to allow little things to creep in and steal our peace and joy. Maybe something doesn’t go our way, or someone says something upsetting. Even traffic can cause us to get our focus off if we let it. We have to remember that each day is a gift. If we choose to focus on what’s wrong, we’ll miss the beauty that each day has to offer.
I encourage you today; don’t let the precious moments of life pass you by. Don’t wait for holidays and birthdays to show people that you care. Remember, each day is unique and irreplaceable. You have been given time that can be invested or wasted; hours that can be used or misused. That’s why the psalmist prayed to God, “Teach us to number our days.” He was saying, “Teach us to value every moment we’ve been given.” As you keep a proper perspective, you’ll gain a heart of wisdom. You’ll draw closer to God and experience the full blessing that He has for you!
