Scripture of the Day:
“If you have raced with men on foot and they have worn you out, how can you compete with horses? If you stumble in safe country, how will you manage in the thickets by the Jordan?” – Jeremiah 12:5

Life has a funny way of bringing you through the fire. It is how we respond to challenges and circumstances that define the level at which we live. If we have a victim mentality, then we remain powerless and never pull out of the things that are holding us back. But we can expect a whole different result when we stand on the Word of God and respond accordingly.
In this life none of us can avoid trouble. But we can’t expect to keep up with the horses if we are still struggling with men. Rise above. Challenge yourself to another level. God didn’t create you to cluck with the chickens but to fly with the eagles.
The battle starts in the mind. To overcome whatever it is that we face, we must speak the truth which is the Word of God. Regardless of our circumstances, we must walk by faith not by sight. Don’t always trust your eyes and your current circumstances. Trust the Word of God. Speak words of faith.
For God’s ways are not our ways. He can do exceedingly and abundantly above all that we think or image. Put your trust in him. Surrender to him. Call upon the Lord. Know that our good good Father is there for his children who truly love him. For God knows the heart. And we can rise above… for we can do all things through Christ who is our strength.
I call you blessed.
Dear heavenly Father, thank you for your Word today. Fill us with all of your goodness. Let your Holy Spirit overflow in us. Wash us clean. Make us new. Purify us from the inside out. Thank you for our very life and breath. We are overwhelmed by your goodness. Help us to speak light and life even when our circumstances might not look good. Help us to trust in you. Let our Words speak your Word even when we struggle to believe. We believe. Help our unbelief. We give you all the honor and glory and praise, in Jesus mighty name. Amen.
