JANUARY 8

Destined To Win
“Now thanks be to God Who always leads us in triumph in Christ and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place.”
2 Corinthians 2:14

Nothing but constant victory is in the plan of God for our lives. Why? Because Jesus already won the victory for us in every area of life. We are to walk in such victory that as we go about our day there is an aroma of victory that is to emanate from our lives as a fragrance for all to smell. If you have used a diffuser you can understand this. Place a fragrant oil in its holder and light a candle under it. In a short period of time the air all around becomes filled with that fragrance. That is how the Father sees us in Christ and how the rest of the world, satan and demons are supposed to view our lives in this earth in Christ. Don’t be cheated out of your victories. Stand for them! They are already yours.
 
Scripture reading: John 16:33; 1 Corinthians 15:57; Romans 8:35-39

No Condemnation
“There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus…”
Romans 8:1
The sense of guilt, unworthiness and feeling unfit to receive from the Lord because of sin and past failures is something that plagues many of us as believers. This fact must be clear in our minds: JESUS CHRIST PAID THE PRICE FOR EVERY SIN, PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE.” We have an Advocate and a High Priest before our Father Whose Name is Jesus Christ. The Scripture teaches us how to deal with sin and failure: go to Jesus, confess it, as for forgiveness, receive forgiveness and go forth in righteousness. Thoughts of what you did may attempt to stay in your mind. Don’t receive them. Something that I have found helpful for years is this – after receiving forgiveness, do a good thing, a God thing, something that the Bible tells you that you can do for God instead of standing around and allowing your mind to try to keep you in the past. Rebel against those thoughts. This is practicing righteousness. By doing this you will learn both how to receive forgiveness and how to practice righteousness.
Scripture reading: 2 Corinthians 5:21; 1 John 1:9-2:2; 1 Corinthians 15:34

Be Aware of The Tenses

“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ.” Ephesians 1:3

In this New Covenant there are some small, subtleties that we must remain conscious of because of the role that they play in the accuracy of our prayers and in our standing in faith and in our proficient receiving from the Father. We must renew our minds to the tenses in which certain things are written to us in the New Testament. The redemptive work of Christ is a finished work; nothing can be added to it neither can anything be taken away from it. That speaks volumes to us. It tells us that everything that we could ever want or desire that is good in this life has already been paid for and accomplished in the finished work of Christ. His resurrection from the dead declares that. Basically, that is telling us that we are not trying to be blessed, nor are we trying to get the Father to bless us. WE ARE ALREADY BLESSED! Our approach to receiving or appropriating our blessing is to approach the Father with thanksgiving in these areas of blessing. Not seeing and understanding little things like this become detrimental to the accuracy of our prayers and our receiving what the Bible says is ours. I want to challenge you today to become acutely aware of the past tense as seen with regard to our blessing and position in Christ in the New Testament. This slight adjustment in your focus will revolutionize your vital life in Christ.

Scripture reading: Ephesians 2:1-10

Boast In The Lord

“But of Him are ye in Christ Jesus, Who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption: that according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.” 1 Corinthians 1:30-31

Keep this simple truth in mind: no matter how good you are at something or what it is that you accomplish, remember that your ability and success is all because of Jesus. Our boasting is not to be in our accomplishments, but in the Lord. Refrain from pride, for it will lead to destruction and from haughtiness, for it will cause one to fall. Remember to give God the glory for every one of your successes, no matter what sort they are.

Scripture reading: Proverbs 16:18; Jeremiah 9:23-24

Watch Your Step!

“It is inevitable that stumbling blocks should come, but woe to him through whom they come.” Luke 17:1 New American Standard Bible

In this time that we live, opportunities to be offended are in abundance. As you walk this pathway of Christian living, you will have to be acutely aware of what is in your path. There will be little things and big things that the enemy will attempt to use and magnify through the actions of others. There is a very simple solution for you and that is TO CHOOSE NOT TO BE OFFENDED! Someone might say, “How is that possible?” The way to do it is to get to know God as love, follow His example and receive His commandment to walk in love. If you will do this you will find the Holy Spirit lighting your path in such a way that you will see how to deal with these things and some of them you will see even before you get to them. It will take time and dedication. You can do it!

Scripture reading: Psalm 119:165; 1 John 2:1-10

Keep Hope Alive

“Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit Who was given to us.” Romans 5:5 NKJV

Have you ever wondered why real Bible hope can’t disappoint you? The answer is simple: because God loves us and He has poured out His love in our hearts by means of the Holy Spirit. Hope, from the perspective of the Word of God, is a joyful, confident expectation of something that God has promised. Of course, the things the Father has promised are found in the Bible. Since God cannot lie, there is no reason for us to doubt what He has spoken. Therefore, since He said it, we are to rejoice about His promises, looking forward to their manifestation in our lives with the same kind of expectation that a child has about receiving something that he or she has asked their parents for as a present for Christmas. Now, here is the icing on the cake: God demonstrates His love for us through what He did for us through Christ Jesus. On top of the fact that He cannot lie, He has assured us of every good thing through the love He has shown us by Jesus Christ. This is the love that He poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit. It’s time for us to believe and receive with joyful, confident expectation everything that is already ours in Christ Jesus. KEEP HOPE ALIVE!

Scripture reading: Romans 5:8; 2 Corinthians 1:20
