BELIEVE GOD FROM START TO FINISH

The conception of every new thing comes with much excitement and energy. The new thing could be an idea, vision, dream, goal month, baby, business; a new job, car, ministry, a new exercise routine; name it; any new thing! As you progress in the new thing though, you may experience challenges, twists and turns and or even growth spurts (the teenage stage of anything)! I encourage you this week to trust God in every stage of it.

He who begun a new thing in you will bring it to completion (Philipians1:6). As child of God, His plans for you are orchestrated by Him. Like a symphony conductor, allow God to walk you through the symphony of your life. Partner with Him in each stage of the process; in the exciting times and through the challenging period. I believe God likes to show Himself strong on your behalf through those twists and turns, that’s when we see His mighty hand of salvation, deliverance healing and restoration. We get to experience God as the chief conductor bringing the ensemble of the new things to high climax-all things working for our good (Romans 8:28). By consistently involving and trusting God, when you meet your goal you can testify to “thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ (1Corinthians 15:57)! Yeaaah! Kudos to you!

Commit your ways to the Lord and He will establish them. No matter where you are with your goals right now, commit that stage to the Lord right now. Engage God in it. God rejoices at your success. He celebrates with you (Zephaniah 3:17), believe God for every area of your life. Have faith in God. He will see you through to the end.

LIVING AS THOUGH GOD IS FOR YOU

Lately I have been reflecting on Romans 8:31 which says, “If God is for us, who can against us”. Then I though surely what would I do differently daily know that God is for me?

The truth is God never changes, His promises are sure. So, God means it when He says He is for you. God does not lie, and He cannot change His mind (Numbers 23:19.) Furthermore, Jesus says in, behold I am with you always, I will never leave you or forsake you. I am with you to the end (Matthew 28:20, Deuteronomy 31.8.). So surely if you knew that God is for you right now, what could you do differently? Can you evaluate your situation right now and picture God right there with you? Ephesians 2:4-7 says we are seated in heavenly places with Jesus Christ. This is pretense tense, meaning right now Jesus is with you!

I challenge you this week to live as though God is right there with you. Pursue life with boldness and courage. Dream big and engage God in your dreams. Since you are that close with Him anyway, ask for His guidance, ask God what you do not understand. Ask Him about the past, the present and the future. Make the Holy Spirit your personal consultant! Pursue your dreams and destiny with faith and tenacity.

Pursue life! Live to the fullest knowing that God is for you and nothing- I mean nothing will separate Him from loving you. Go forth and conquer, unleash the potential in you. You are already guaranteed victory through Jesus (1 Corinthians 15:57). Look at the situation at tell it “GOD IS FOR ME” because it is true; GOD IS FOR YOU!
