Many people allow their happiness to be based on their present circumstances! If their circumstances change, then so does their mood from good to sad. The Apostle Paul was in prison when he wrote the book to the Philippians yet he said, “rejoice in the Lord always and again I say rejoice”. Phil. 4:4. Why was he able to pin these words and wrote references about joy 15 times in this small book? Because his happiness was not based on the moment, but was based on the Lord’s joy which is eternal! Rejoice in Him today!
God’s destiny for your life is seldom a straight line. Don’t give up believing when you hit a curve! He will see you through! “When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; And through the rivers, they will not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be scorched, Nor will the flame burn you.” Is. 43:2.
Unless you have a revelation of grace, you will miss the entire heart of God!
We walk by faith, not by emotions!
Many people think of ministry as “out there” or some special calling! However, ministry is all around us! Jesus did so much of his ministry one on one. Don’t fall into condemnation because you feel like you’re doing nothing! Open your eyes to all the opportunities around you on a daily basis!
Right thinking leads to victorious living! Change your mind, change your life!
