What’s taking control over your life?

Are you letting peace take control in the midst of this time of unrest and turmoil? 

Are you at a point where you feel anxious and feel as though everything around you is going 100pmh?  Take a moment and ask yourself, “Why am I in such a hurry and constant rush?”

The word “peace” appears in the Bible 420 times. It is very clear that the Lord wants you to live in peace. God is not in a hurry and desires for you to slow down and let His peace rule in your heart. 

“And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be thankful.”- Colossians 3:15

Finding peace is easier said than done. Whether you are dealing with job stress, family, relationships, financial problems, or any other obstacle that may come your way; it can be difficult to find peace. It’s only through Christ, The Prince of Peace, that you can find true peace.

Being in a constant hurry can make you have health problems making you feel tired, anxious, frustrated, and disappointed with everything around you. This is not God’s desire for you!

“I’ve said these things to you so that you will have peace in me. In the world you have distress. But be encouraged! I have conquered the world.” — John 16:33

Today, I encourage you to take some time to sit down and meditate on God’s promises. He has promised to be your peace and will break down every wall of anxiety, frustration and disappointments. Know that you can take all of your cares to Him and He will give you peace of mind and rest in your weary soul.

The good news is that in this life, there will be hardships, but they only last so long. Be at peace knowing that it’ll all be over soon, and that God is in control.

Who Is Your Identity In?

People talk about the word identity but, do you know what it means to have an identity in Him? 

You are not defined by what your family and friends say you are, you are not defined by what social media thinks you are, and you are not defined by your mistakes and failures. 

You are who God says you are, you are defined in HIM

When there’s so much chaos around us, it’s easy to forget who you are in Christ when you are not building yourself up with His word to get you a strong foundation in knowing who you are in Him. 

 “Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you, before you were born, I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.” 

(Jeremiah 1:5) 

Look at yourself the way God looks at you by the Word of God. 

 “You are fearfully and wonderfully made by God.”

(Psalm 139:14) 

When the devil comes to attack, steal and destroy you, what are you going to do? You can choose to let him accomplish his evil plan; or you can be BOLD and let him know you are the child of the Most High. 

 “You are one with Christ as he is one with his father.”

(John 17:11) 

Remember this: A new life has begun when you are born again in Christ.”

Have you ever asked yourself, “what does it mean to have ‘gratitude?’”

Are You Leaning On God’s Love?

What is God’s love?

“Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God. Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love” – (1 John 4:7-8)

God’s love is so sufficient and more than enough.

God’s love is: 

More than your insecurities!

More than your hurt!

More than your troubled times!

Learning how to lean on God’s love:

  • Put God first in your life.
  • Trust in Him.
  • Listen to His voice.
  • And rest in His love.

Remember: “Lean on His everlasting love.”

TOMORROW’S ELECTION!

Many people will be disappointed and excited tomorrow during the election, as they know in their mind, that this is the most important election of their lifetime!

Most people will be voting on what’s important to them or close to their hearts. However, just as in every other area of life, Christians should draw on biblical principles when deciding on which candidate to support and to vote into the most powerful position in America.

Franklin Graham once said, “There’s no perfect person—there’s only one, and that’s the Lord Jesus Christ, but he’s not running for president of the United States.”

As a Christian, our responsibility when we cast our vote will be to understand the principles of God’s Kingdom and His values, and then compare these with the content and character of whatever person, party, platform, or policy for which we will cast your vote.’’

The truth is that we don’t even know what is going to happen. it is so important for us believers to continue to walk in Victory no matter how the election turns out. Our faith and hope in God are good virtues to keep in mind when we are voting; knowing that we have overcome by Faith!

A few things to remember:

* Christ Himself is our victory

* Christ’s victory secures our victory!

* We have overcome by Faith!

* Faith is the victory and we have won the victory!

It is important for us believers to continue to walk in Victory,

no matter what circumstances look like!

“But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ” – (1 Corinthians 15:57)

JESUS MATTERS

There is a Name that is the most powerful Name.

A name that triumphs over any problem, any trials, and tribulation. The one whom the Name represents was given all authority in heaven and on earth. (Matthew 28:18)

Whose Name causes the demons to flee, the lame to walk, the deaf to hear, and the blind to see?

The Name that is above all Name; The Name of Jesus

Isaiah 9:6 says, “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.”

Why is the Name of Jesus so powerful?

Mark 16:15, 17-18, says, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. And these signs will follow those who believe: In My Name, they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.” 

The authority of the Name of Jesus has power.

Romans 10:13 says, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”

The Name above all names, His Name is greater.

Jeremiah 10:6 says, “There is none like you, O Lord; you are great, and your name is great in might.”

When we speak His Name, we shall be saved.

Romans 10:13 says, “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

The Name of Jesus works in every area of your life.

JESUS MATTERS!
