YOUR CASE IS DIFFERENT

“A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee”. Psalm 91:7 KJV
 
When I hear people talk about the events in our world today, I just simply locate where they are. How do you read the bible?  Do you think that there is anything happening right now that is strange to God? There is absolutely nothing that is happening now that is strange to God. Take a trip down memory lane and think of all the prophecies that looked impossible that have come to pass. Child of God, the same God who did the miracles yesterday, is still God today and will exceed your expectation.
  
I know that the world is getting darker, but you are not of the world, so your case is different. Don’t join the multitude to be frightened. Don’t be afraid! Your case is different. The covenant shall speak for you. God has you covered. There is nothing happening that He does not know about. Why are you fretting, anxious and worried about what has been pre-determined before the foundation of the world? Why do you include yourself in the negative news as if you are part of the world? How can they know the difference between the believers and those who do not believe if they don’t see you in the midst of the challenge shining as light and coming out with testimonies? The same things that killed others will happen and rather than kill you, it will promote you because your case is different.
 
Beloved, you are not part of the darkness. You are light. And the light shines where there is darkness and the darkness cannot comprehend it. “For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee. (Isaiah 60:2KJV)

Simultaneously, while the darkness is there in the world, there is light on God’s people. So, don’t include yourself in the darkness. Stand firm in the liberty that God has made available to you and boldly declare that your case is different.

YET NOT I

“But by the grace of God I am what I am, and His grace toward me was not in vain; but I labored more abundantly than they all, yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me.” I Corinthians 15:10 (NKJV)

The meaning of life. The wasted years of life. The poor choices of life. God answers the mess of life with one word: “Grace.” Max Lucado. Saul was his name, a notorious persecutor of Christians who was recorded to have approved the killing of Stephen, Acts 8:1-2. On a mission to further his evil cause in Damascus, Jesus met him, Acts 9 – the beginning of a new leaf in his life. I decree, everyone and anyone embarking on a journey to ensure your destruction, meet their ‘waterloo,’ in the Mighty name of Jesus Christ!

Saul who later became Paul rose to be the most outstanding Apostle in his days. Although, he was the least like he attributed, I Corinthians 15:9, his success supersedes all other apostles. He wrote more books in the New Testament than anyone; touched more lives than anyone; traveled more nations than anyone; raised more protégés than anyone; became more influential than anyone; his mess became his message, by the working of grace. Is life becoming difficult for you? Are you in a ‘mess’ right now? You can come out of that difficulty; your ‘mess’ can become a message for your world. Grace is all you need. When you find grace, you find help.

PRAYER
Dear Father, I thank you for the gift of grace (Ephesians 2:8). Today, I receive more grace in my life, family, business, career, finances and ministry, in Jesus name!

KEEP IN MIND
Your ‘mess’ can become a message for your world.

[1/11, 7:33 AM] 919063: Control your anger

Saturday 11th January 2020

A wise man [uses self-control and] holds it back.’ Proverbs 29:11 AMP

 

The Bible says, ‘A…fool always loses his temper and displays his anger, but a wise man [uses self-control and] holds it back’ (Proverbs 29:11AMP). You can express anger verbally or through silence. When you use silence as a weapon to hurt someone, you’re resorting to emotional manipulation and indulging in childish immaturity. When you were a child and someone refused to do what you wanted, do you remember saying, ‘I’m not talking to you anymore’? That may be acceptable behaviour for a child, but not those who are called to be spiritually mature.

If you’re given to frequent outbursts of temper, here are some Scriptures you’d do well to take to heart: (1) ‘Better…one with self-control than one who takes a city’ (Proverbs 16:32 NIV). (2) ‘A person’s wisdom yields patience; it is to one’s glory to overlook an offence’ (Proverbs 19:11 NIV). (3) ‘Do not be quickly provoked in your spirit, for anger resides in the lap of fools’ (Ecclesiastes 7:9 NIV). (4) ‘Be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, because human anger does not produce the righteousness that God desires’ (James 1:19-20 NIV). (5) ‘Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you’ (Ephesians 4:31-32 NIV).

So ask God to help you get your anger under control. Remember: anger is like fire: when it’s kept under control, it can bring warmth and comfort. But when it’s out of control, it can destroy everything in its path.
