I pray that you are in high expectations of what the Lord has for you today. I want to begin this first daily inspiration of the New Year by saying expect the Great! Expect God’s best for your life while you pursue Gods best in your life. Our pursuit should always start with the intent of understanding the truth in all life situations. Everything we need, every good desire, every healing, every answer, every miracle and every breakthrough lives inside the kingdom of God. When we decide to seek the kingdom of God, we are pursuing to know the mind of Christ where we encounter the truth that sets us free (John 14:6). When we seek to know the mind of Christ we enter the kingdom of God where He supplies all our needs according to His riches in glory through Christ Jesus (Phil. 4:19). When we know the mind of Christ, we are protected by His covering of grace and truth which keeps us in the path of His blessing where we experience the presence of Eternal Life.
Often in life, we get distracted by pursuing things and people before we pursue God. We end up opening ourselves up to be hurt because we left the covering of His grace and truth that sets us free (John 8:32). Where in your life do you need to encounter God’s truth? Where ever you are experiencing opposition in your life, you need to encounter God’s truth so that you can be set free by the truth He reveals. At the beginning of all truth is faith. The word of God tells us that faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God (Romans 10:17). When we hear the word of God we are hearing faith that is at the beginning of us understanding the truth that sets us free.
Be encouraged to know, although you may be currently experiencing opposition of what may seem like a permanent setback and even hell on earth; even this can not separate you from the love of God (Romans 8:31-39). God’s love is so perfect that His love is our grace and truth that empowers us to move all opposition out the way. So whatever is attacking you it is time for you to fight back with the word of faith, as you trust God to reveal His truth that will set you free in that area of your life. His word is our mighty weapons of war; to win against whatever is trying to kill, steal and destroy the abundant life He has already secured for us ( 2 Corinthians 10:4).
If you desire to learn how to trust God as you learn how to strengthen your faith while you overcome life’s opposition and life challenges, I welcome you to join Virtuous Women’s Lounge Community. On Monday, January 9th we are starting our 40 days of Spiritually Fit For Life New Year Experience where you will begin to learn how to fight with the mighty weapons of God and encounter the truth that will set you free to live the life you desire. When the truth sets us free we no longer have to be a slave to fear. Knowing His Spirit Of Truth reaffirms our identity in Him and strengthens our ability to get lasting success in life.
Jonathan David and Melissa Helser of Bethel Music is our photo inspiration. Their single, “No Longer A Slave To Fear” reminds us that we have access to the power, love and sound mind of God so we no longer have to be a slave to fear (2 Timothy 1:7).
