FOR EVERY NEED, THERE IS A PROMISE

For all the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us.

2 Corinthians 1:20 (NKJV)

God knows what you are in need of. For every need that you have there are the promises of God to meet that need. Every single promise of God in Him is Yes, and Amen, to the glory of God. When the promises of God are fulfilled, He gets the glory. Therefore you know that He watches over every Word of His to confirm it in your life.

GOD’S WAY LOOKS GOOD ON YOU

Listen, My son, and be wise, and keep your heart on the right path.

Proverbs 23:19 (NIV)

As humans we are creatures of habit. Some of us have been Christians for years, while others only for a few days. Nevertheless, we all have been redeemed from destruction. Even though we have a new nature living on the inside of us, the Bible says that we need to put off the corrupt man and put on the new man. When we purposefully change our habits and remove the corruption in our lives, we are “putting on the new man ” (in Christ); we are keeping our hearts on the right path.

LIFE IS NO MASQUERADE

Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor what is evil. Cling to what is good. be kindly affectionate to one another with brotherly love, in honor giving preference to one another.

Romans 12:9-10 (NKJV)

Everyone can discern someone who is wearing a mask. We need to be sincere in our love towards others. You show your love by your actions. We always hear about tough love, but that isn’t the only love. God’s Word says to honor one another by giving preference to each other. Esteem others higher than yourself, even if they don’t deserve it. In like manner you are allowing the fragrance of Christ to flow through you.

TO KNOW AND BE KNOWN

My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me. 

John 10:27 (NKJV)

You are the sheep of His sheepfold. He knows you by name. The beautiful thing is that a sheep knows their shepherd’s voice. You know His voice because His Spirit lives in you. When you read His Word, He speaks to you and makes known His will. He also ministers to you when you are in His presence. When you pray, He gently talks to you in a still small voice.

HOW TO AVOID DEAD ENDS

There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death.

Proverbs 14:12 (NKJV)

Everyone has an opinion on how to live. They may be right in the eyes of men but not necessarily right in the eyes of God. What is easy and comfortable could lead to destruction and turmoil. The easy way is not necessarily God’s way of living. Let’s take the principles we learned from the Bible and apply it to our lives. That’s the right way and in the end, it will lead to life everlasting.

SOAR TO HEIGHTS OF AN EAGLE

But those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint. 

Isaiah 40:31 (NKJV)

An eagle has the ability to soar to altitudes of 10,000 feet or more, and can soar for hours using the natural wind currents and thermal updrafts. God has compared the person who waits on the Lord to the likeness of an eagle. As you devote your life to Him in word and deed, you will find the strength to soar like an eagle to new heights that you could never have reached without the power of God.

STAY IN YOUR LANE, AND FINISH YOUR RACE

I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. 

Philippians 3:14 (NKJV)

In a race, there is only one person to be crowned the winner. God has called you to a specific race. We are all running the race that God has placed before us. The Apostle Paul said, “I press on toward the goal to win the prize.” There is a “press” that has to happen if you are to win the prize. Let’s refocus today and keep our eyes on the prize that God has set before us.
