returned from Mayo and are facing tough circumstances with Rick, however, we have to focus on God's truth. We are more than overcomer's through Him who loves us. We are living this truth and focusing on Him and His word relying on His strength and His power.
“Whatever we focus on, we empower.” If we focus on negative things, we empower negativity in our lives.
If we focus on selfish and carnal things, we empower our fallen nature. If we murmur, complain and focus on how unfair everything seems to be in a difficult situation, we are not helping resolve the issue. Instead, we’re actually empowering more frustration, anger, bitterness, disappointment and injustice in our lives.
If we choose to focus on the positive of Kingdom truth, however, then we empower the love, light and life of Jesus to fill us and flow through us!!!!!!!! The apostle Paul put it this way when mentoring believers in Philippi:
Whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report…think on these things (Philippians 4:8 KJV).
What’s incredible is that Paul wrote this from prison. He was locked up in awful conditions, not sure if he would live or die. Yet he wrote again and again about things like joy, rejoicing, eager expectation, the privilege of walking with Christ, hope, confidence and peace.
Near the end of his letter, he shared how this is all possible—by choosing what we focus on. By deciding what we think about. By filling our mind with thoughts that are “true…honest…pure…lovely…good. WE ARE TO FOCUS ON GOD'S TRUTH THAT IS FOUND IN HIS WORD!
I can't get enough of His truth!!!
Whatever your situation is today, God knows about it. He sees you and hears the cry of your heart. And if you will give Him your problems and do what He tells you to do, you will access His overcoming love, grace and power and be more than a conqueror.
Because in Christ, as He is, so are we in this world!
WOW WOW WOW! I'm standing on these truths!!!
Will you join me???
