Did you know that no matter how you feel right now, someone wants to be where you are, someone wants to have what you have and someone wants to be like you? You were created to be a vessel for God to use but God cannot use a discouraged servant.
Worry interferes with God’s Spirit in our lives. Despite the temptation to feel discouraged, we must overcome this as Christians. By saying about ourselves what the Bible says about us, we are made overcomers. What does the Bible say about you?
Are you sick? The Bible says in Isaiah 53:5 that by His wounds you are healed.
Are you weak? The Bible says in Psalm 27:1 that your God is the strength of your life.
Are you experiencing failure? The Bible says in Romans 8:37 that you are more than a conqueror through Christ. Are you trapped? The Bible says in John 8:36 that the Son has set you free. Are you facing lack? The Bible says in Philippians 4:19 that your God shall supply all your needs.
Words of confession of God’s Word indeed work wonders! When the Word of God prevails in your life, people will see it in your dominion, in the way you talk, in the way you walk. Are you ready to win today? Say to yourself, “I AM AN OVERCOMER!”
Do you compare yourself with others and measure yourself by yourself? Remember, when you are not content and spend much of your time thinking about what you do not have, you may be slipping into unhealthy doubt that can lead you away from God to scepticism, cynicism, then hard-heartedness. These are the walls that stand as barriers between you and the Spirit of the Father.
The wall of Jericho had stopped the Israelites from entering the land whereas Jericho was God’s promise to the Israelites (Joshua 6:4-5). Nevertheless, faith joyfully confesses its victory. As the Israelites joyfully shouted their victory, the wall of Jericho fell. What is the wall in your life that stops you from receiving from God?
Joy is your conquering power (Nehemiah 8:10). “This is the day the LORD has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it” (Psalm 118:24). With this joy, break every wall of unhappiness, envy, jealousy, discontentment, offence and pain of the past that stands between you and the Spirit of the Father, in Jesus’ name. As that wall is broken in your life, experience the Bible come alive and the fulfilment of God’s promises.
