The Rock Of Our Salvation And Our Strength (Psalm 62:5-7)

My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation is from him. He only is my rock and my salvation: he is my defence; I shall not be moved. In God is my salvation and my glory: the rock of my strength, and my refuge, is in God.

Psalm 62:5-7 (KJV)

When we place all our trust and expectation in the goodness and faithfulness of our God, we will not be disappointed. While God often works through other people, let us remember always that He alone is the rock of our salvation and our strength.

Speak Words Of Life (1 Peter 3:10-11)

For he who would love life and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips from speaking deceit. Let him turn away from evil and do good; let him seek peace and pursue it.

1 Peter 3:10-11 (NKJV)

If we want to love life and see good days, we cannot speak words of evil or deceit. Our words reflect what is in our heart, and so as we deliberately fill our hearts with God’s Word, as we allow the love of Jesus to saturateĀ us, we will find our words naturally coming into alignment with life and peace. Today, let us be mindful of this tremendous power that lies in our tongue, and let us purpose in our hearts to only speak words of life.

Fellow Laborers With God (1 Corinthians 3:9)

For we are fellow workmen (joint promoters, laborers together) with and for God; you are God’s garden and vineyard and field under cultivation, [you are] God’s building.

1 Corinthians 3:9 (AMP)

Every born again believer has an assignment from God, we have a role to play when it comes to God fulfilling His plans and purposes in this earth. As we yield to God’s plans and purposes for our life, we ourselves are molded, shaped and developed in the process, the Holy Spirit working in us to make us more fully into all He has called us to be.

The Believer’s Authority (Luke 10:19)

Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.

Luke 10:19 (KJV)

Every believer has been given authority in the name of Jesus over all of the forces of darkness. When confronted with things coming against us, we are to pray with confidence as well as speak boldly to the storms and to the mountains of life. And so let us stand firm in this authority, and let us rest in the quiet assurance that because the One who has already overcome the world now lives on the inside of us, we get to partake in His overcoming and see the fruits of it manifest in our lives.

Choose Love (Romans 13:8)

Owe no one anything except to love one another, for he who loves another has fulfilled the law.

Romans 13:8 (NKJV)

The key to loving is to first receive God’s love for us. The more that we receive His love, the more will we be able to reflect it into our world. May we resolve to live lives of radical love, and in so doing follow the example of the One who loved us first.

Fellow Laborers With God (1 Corinthians 3:9)

For we are fellow workmen (joint promoters, laborers together) with and for God; you are God’s garden and vineyard and field under cultivation, [you are] God’s building.

1 Corinthians 3:9 (AMP)

Every born again believer has an assignment from God, we have a role to play when it comes to God fulfilling His plans and purposes in this earth. As we yield to God’s plans and purposes for our life, we ourselves are molded, shaped and developed in the process, the Holy Spirit working in us to make us more fully into all He has called us to be.

Trust God’s Vision For Your Life (Genesis 12:1-2)

Now the LORD had said to Abram: “Get out of your country, from your family and from your father’s house, to a land that I will show you. I will make you a great nation; I will bless you and make your name great; and you shall be a blessing.”

Genesis 12:1-2 (NKJV)

God has a promised land for every single one of us; there is a dream He has placed in our heart, and the journey there is one of faith and grace. When we are willing to trust God’s vision for our lives, we will find that He will lead us into places of greater blessing, and He will give us more opportunities to be a blessing to others.

Look To God For Strength And Peace (Psalm 29:11)

The LORD will give strength to unto his people; the LORD will bless his people with peace.

Psalm 29:11 (KJV)

God has promised to give us strength and to bless us with peace, yet the key is for us to remember each day to turn to Him in faith and expectancy. And so let us realize that He is our source for absolutely everything, and that it is in our total and complete dependence upon Him that we actually find our strength, our peace, and anything else we may need.

Lay Hold Of The Newness Of Life (Philippians 3:12)

Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me.

Philippians 3:12 (NKJV)

We are continually called to press on to lay hold of all that God has prepared for us. May we be comfortable with the journey, with the fact that we are still a work in progress, yet may we always press more fully towards who we have been created to be in Him. Each day offers a fresh opportunity to let go of the old, and to lay hold of the newness of life in Christ Jesus.
