The Power in Obedience

Who or what do you obey – give yourself to? What is that something that consumes your heart and feeds your soul?  Fear, anxiety and hate are running rampant.  It is time for love, peace and joy to invade your life.

In the midst of crisis, you can find comfort in complying with righteousness.  Your heart can begin to swell with an inner joy when your mind is consumed with unconditional love. Stop giving yourself to the confused, the divided, the selfish and the undisciplined. Follow a true leader.  Connect to the power source of supernatural blessings, protection and abundance!

Surely you know that you become the slaves
of whatever you give yourselves to.  
Anything or anyone you follow will be your master.
You can follow sin, or you can obey God.
Following sin brings spiritual death,
but obeying God makes you right with him.
– Romans 6:16 (ERV, Easy-To-Read Version)

The good news is you that can begin living a life of obedience today! Your Heavenly Father is always ready to be the authority over your life. There is no waiting list or special requirements.  Come as you are and obey the One who forever loves you!   

Fearless Power

What are you most afraid of?  What fear goes beyond the temporary shock of something like a snake, clown or spider? This month, let’s attack the “scary things” that have tried to debilitate progress and become permanent in our lives.  With the power of God, now is the time to conquer our deepest, darkest fears!

For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power,
and of love, and of a sound mind. – 2 Timothy 1:7

Here are some of the fears many of us encounter:

  • Running out of money, resources, or food
  • Making a wrong decision with family or business
  • Fear of failure and the shame or judgement that results
  • Generational curses or demonic influence
  • Rejection in relationships or career path
  • Getting sick or dying from disease
  • Losing control and becoming stressed or depressed

When waging a spiritual assault against fear, you need to know what God’s Word says about overcoming it. This is a serious war – fear wants to control, torment and keep you in bondage. Unforgiveness, jealousy, bitterness and anger are all some of the tactics fear will use to oppress you.  Meditating on God’s Word and hearing the good news of Jesus Christ weakens the grip of fear over your life.  Instead of fear causing anxiety and making you afraid to live victoriously, you can confront it with the powerful promises of God!

There are so many, but here are two scriptures you can store in your arsenal…

Fear thou not; for I am with thee:
be not dismayed; for I am thy God:
I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee;
yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand
of my righteousness. – Isaiah 41:10

In all thy ways acknowledge him,
and he shall direct thy paths. – Proverbs 3:6

Friend, God loves you and wants you to be free. Let Him show you how to live a fearless, blessed life. Seek Him and unleash the supernatural power residing in you. Today is a perfect time to begin a new relationship with your Heavenly Father and…Live Fearless!

Power Choices

Power ChoicesAre you overloaded with information?
Do you live in uncertainty that your life choices are the right ones?  Have you ever felt overwhelmed when it is time to make a decision? Often, feelings of anxiety surface because we try to make important life choices all on our own.  There are so many options to consider… who to trust, where to go, what to believe, which cause to support, when to start or what to do next?  Thankfully, God gives us advice on what to choose.

I call heaven and earth to record this day against you,
that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing:
therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live: – Deuteronomy 30:19

In other words, whatever is presented to you as a “choice” in your personal daily life, mindset or business that brings life, peace and blessings – CONTINUE and GO FOR IT!  Choices that contradict the life God promises in His Word or situations that bring pain, confusion and death – RELEASE and DO NOT CHOOSE.

Envy thou not the oppressor, and choose none of his ways. – Proverbs 3:31

It can be difficult to choose life if the opinions of the world have more influence over you than the Word of God.  Making choices based on spiritual revelation is a humbling process because they are not always popular, supported or understood by others.  Sometimes the decision may not even agree with your own flesh.  Your mind tells you one thing, while your spirit leads you in an entirely new direction.  When you find yourself going back and forth, reasoning or making excuses to justify a decision – ask God for guidance.  He does not want you to choose anything out of fear, anger or desperation. Draw close to Him regardless of the circumstance.  You are His beloved and He honors your free will.  

God desires for you to thrive and live a long, victorious life!  The more you fellowship with Him, the easier it will be to choose the life and blessings he has especially for you.  Today you can begin making decisions with more confidence and power than ever before.  Friend, know that choosing life will always result in good success!

Words we say to ourselves are just as powerful as the words we speak out of our mouths.  This year, let’s thrive on powerful words…the ones we verbalize and the ones we meditate on.

For the word of God is quick, and powerful,
and sharper than any two edged sword,
piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit,
and of the joints and marrow,
and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
– Hebrews 4:12

Let’s choose our Power Scripture for 2014 and tap into this ultimate power source!  I am selecting a scripture that encourages me when I think about it and empowers me when I speak it aloud…

Power of Your Words

word collageEverything you say can and will be used against you – or for you.  Regardless of race, gender, age or financial status, words have the ability to release a blessing or unleash a curse.  Do not underestimate the power to transform your life through the words spoken from your own mouth. 

Death and life are in the power of the tongue:
and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof. – Proverbs 18:21

So what would your life look like if every word you spoke actually manifested?  Do your words produce hope and life?

“This is the start of something good”                              “Anything is possible”
“I am healed and healthy beyond measure”                    “I believe in you”

Or do your words produce hopelessness and death?

“I am sick and tired of…”                                           “I am losing my mind”
“This ____ is killing me”                                        “Nothing is working, I give up!”

Too often, I have let words associated with fear, anger, pain or doubt slip out of my mouth.  I must continually take inventory of my words and thoughts to create a positive atmosphere around me.  My goal is to be filled with words and thoughts that align with the promises of God.  Then, I will naturally speak words of love, victory and faith in every situation! 

What words of life can you add to your vocabulary today?
