Effort in this life can produce results, but God’s favor is better! Realize you’re righteous and favored by Him today! “For it is You who blesses the righteous man, O LORD, You surround him with favor as with a shield.” Ps. 57:12
As believers, we are not trying to get the victory, but are the victorious maintaining the victory! ” Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us”. Rom. 8:37
We win, because He already won!
If you’ve never had the opportunity to visit a 3rd world country, you’ll never know how blessed we are in America. Yet, I saw so many smiling faces in the people of Guatemala and so little in modern conveniences. Be thankful to God everyday, for everything He has blessed you with. Start first with clean water and food! Everything else is just added blessings! Wow, we should be the most happy people on earth!
God’s blessings are not something you seek after, they are already provided for you in the new covenant! “He redeemed us in order that the blessing given to Abraham might come to the Gentiles through Christ Jesus, so that by faith we might receive the promise of the Spirit.” Gal. 3:14
A carnal mind is simply entertaining thoughts that don’t line up with the word! A spiritual mind chooses the Word over any negative thoughts!
When God opens a door, no one can shut it! Look for His open doors today!
