Persist & Pursue: Power

February 28, 2022  •  Leave a Comment

God’s word shows us THE WAY to live.

The words "THE WAY" can mean a path or direction, or a particular method of doing things. The concept of THE WAY also has to do with ACTION, not just belief.

Matthew 5:41 ~ If anyone forces you to go one mile, go with them two miles. Go the EXTRA MILE. When we bear our burdens cheerfully and share generosity with others it makes it possible for God to demonstrate HIS GOODNESS even in the face of those with evil intent.

Jesus instructs us to demonstrate strength and POWER by freely giving away more than an enemy can take.

In Luke 10:19, Jesus gives us the assurance that He has given us the POWER to overcome all the power of the enemy and nothing shall harm us.

Power comes from God to those of us who are followers of Christ and are on a journey to submit to him and bring out the truth of the Lord’s prayer, where it says, “Your will be done.”

Persist & Pursue. Pray God’s promises. Let’s be POWERFUL. Together.
 


Persist & Pursue: Be Grateful

Let’s TAKE TWO and ponder this:

The Bible consistently exhorts us to be attentive in our mind and hearts, to let go of our attachment to ourselves and to be in the moment. To be aware of God’s daily provision for us.

Take time each day to: 

Get Quiet. 

Be Grateful.

 Speak Your Truth. 

Connect. 

Pray. 

Let Go. 

Let God.

Gratitude opens our spiritual eyes. There’s a beautiful cycle in giving God thanks: the more we thank Him, the more we see Him working in us and around us. Gratitude helps us sense God’s presence, His personal care and His perfect timing.

This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.~Psalm 118:24
