When was the last time you poured your heart for God?
Mark 11:23-25, says “23 “Truly I tell you, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in their heart but believes that what they say will happen, it will be done for them. 24 Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. 25 And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive them, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins.”
You are more than a conquer.
Romans 10:17, says, “17 So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.”
You must remember to have the attitude of Joshua and Caleb.
1 Corinthians 16:13 says, “Be on guard. Stand firm in the Faith. Be courageous. Be strong.”
When it looks like it’s not possible, remember that it’s possible through God’s word.
Sometimes you’re just going to have to have Faith when it seems impossible because always know that through God, things will always be possible.
Deuteronomy 32:4, says “Know therefore that the Lord your God is God; he is the faithful God, keeping his covenant of love to a thousand generations of those who love him and keep his commandments.”
Don’t give up, continue to have the attitude of Faith and trust in him.
Where is your obedience?
You have to plant the seed, keep watering it, and keep it clean.
Let it grow into what’s supposed to be!
James 1:23-25, says “23 Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like someone who looks at his face in a mirror 24 and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like. 25 But whoever looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom and continues in it-not forgetting what they have heard but doing it—they will be blessed in what they do.”
When you obey the word of God, you experience the supernatural.
– When you don’t expect something, you don’t receive anything.
James 2:16-18, says “16 If one of you says to them, “Go in peace; keep warm and well fed,” but does nothing about their physical needs, what good is it? 17 In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.18 But someone will say, “You have faith; I have deeds.” “Show me your faith without deeds, and I will show you my faith by my deeds.”
Obedience is an expression of faith in God and believing in his commandments.
You qualify for all the blessings; your harvest will come.
Deuteronomy 28:1-2 says, “If you fully obey the Lord your God and carefully follow all his commands, I give you today, the Lord your God will set you high above all the nations on earth. 2 All these blessings will come on you and accompany you if you obey the Lord your God.”
Refuse NOT to QUIT.
Don’t get DISCOURAGED.
Don’t lose FAITH.
I believe you put yourself in a qualifying position when you trust, have faith, and obey God.
“Jesus replied, ‘Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching.'” John 14:23
What’s your vision for the rest of 2020?
Let’s be honest, 2020 has been disappointing to a lot of us so far. We’re only 8 months into this year, and we have experienced dramatic changes. Plans, & vacations have been canceled as well as schools being shut down. Overall, there has been a lot of unrest.
So, let’s backtrack to the beginning of the year when many of us were so expectant for what was to come.
Many of us went into this year with the idea of having the perfect 2020, writing down our visions, goals, and plans for the year. A lot of negativity has defined in 2020, but we can choose how we will respond to the rest of this year.
Will we walk in fear, or will we walk in faith? Will we speak negativity, or will we speak life? Will we choose dissatisfaction, or will we choose joy? Although we can’t control the future, we can control our thoughts, words, and responses.
What was the vision God gave you for 2020?
Now, take a look at your heart and ask yourself, have I given up on 2020?
The vision that you had when you started this year does it remain the same?
In this scripture, it says that God is still good, and there is still hope.
Proverbs 23:18, says, “Surely there is a future, and your hope will not be cut off.”
Romans 8:25, it says, “But if we hope for what we do not see, with perseverance, we wait eagerly for it.”
I challenge you to ask God for what your vision should be for the rest of 2020.
Let’s choose to speak life over our lives during this time, and to not lose hope in humanity and in our visions.
Habakkuk 2:2-3 says, “And the Lord answered me: ‘Write the vision; make it plain on tablets, so he may run who reads it. For still, the vision awaits its appointed time; it hastens to the end—it will not lie. If it seems slow, wait for it; it will surely come; it will not delay.”
This is a reminder to keep chasing and going after the things of God, no matter what the circumstances might be. His plans and hopes will always be much greater. Keep in mind, to not give up when things get hard because having a vision is being able to see something that isn’t done yet. If you want something to come to past, you have to have vision and faith before it ever comes to reality.
Get ahold of your vision so that you can do it in Christ.
Jeremiah 29:11 says, “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.”
You are loved.
God has a purpose and a plan for you.
