Some people confuse confidence with cockiness or arrogance. It is pleasing to God that we be confident in our relationship with God and in ourselves. We are not to be boastful but we should be clear and confident that God has created us for great things; we are marvelous and fierce; and the best is yet to come.
There are some things in life that are an absolute guarantee. One is if you improve, expand and increase your prayer life; your relationship with God will improve, expand and increase.
It is much easier to be critical than to be correct; to be condemning than empowering. Resist the easy path of being judgmental and live with the measure of grace for others that you receive daily from God.
God has a way of giving us what we need in very unexpected ways. So don’t look for your blessing to come from familiar sources. Be open to a new path of provision.
God is the creator and source of all that is true love. True love is unconditional, unmerited, and unlimited. We can’t buy it, earn it, demand it. It is a pure gift, freely given, and freely received. True love considers the best interests of the other and does what is loving. When we say, “I love you” do we mean it?
It has been said that ‘You gain strength, courage, and confidence every time you face your fears.’ I think you also gain spiritual muscles every time you face your fears with your faith establishing your living witness of God’s power working in your life.
You may be experiencing some challenges right now in your life. Know that God has an escape plan and an elevation plan. So turn your eyes away from the storm and your ears toward heaven and listen for Divine instructions for your escape and elevation. You are going to rise above this storm.
Do not take the challenges you meet today personally. Breath deep and be still before God before you respond. Nothing is coming at you that God and you can’t handle.
You got this! The tasks that are before you today are well within your capacity. Really is there anything to hard for you and God together! You got this.
