More Than Conquerors

TODAY’S VERSE
“In all things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us”
Romans 8:37 (NIV)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Life can get hard. There are so many days that I wake up and I can hardly conquer brushing my teeth, let alone all the battles I have lined up for the day. How can I possibly win the difficulties I am facing? And yet Paul writes, “Does it mean he no longer loves us if we have trouble or calamity, or are persecuted, or hungry, or destitute, or in danger, or threatened with death?” Paul answers, “No despite all these things”; despite all these struggles and difficulties, what? Despite all that life can dish out, “in all things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.” But this isn’t simply getting a victory in a negative circumstance. No, Paul says that we are more than a conqueror. It is more than coming out on top of a difficulty. It is living with the realization that we are His child no matter what our circumstances. We are more than a conqueror, we are His ambassador.  We have been chosen by God to live for Him and are part of His family. Today, when problems come up, when it seems that everything is going wrong, remember that Christ has given you everything you need to be a conqueror. But more than a conqueror, He has called you to be His beloved child, an heir with Christ, set free with His blood and given power by His resurrection.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Father, thank You for making me more than a conqueror over all the difficulties I go through. Thank You for loving me and giving me everything I need to live for You. Help me believe this Father and live in it’s reality today.
AMEN

Strength And Song

TODAY’S VERSE
“The LORD is my strength and my song; He has given me victory. Songs of joy and victory are sung in the camp of the godly. The strong right arm of the LORD has done glorious things!”
Psalms 118:14-15 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
I love the two words, “strength” and “song” together. They go hand in hand; His strength, our song. Here is the Psalmist. He had seen God’s strength move on his behalf resulting in a great victory and his heart bursts out in singing. That’s because sometimes words alone are not enough. Our soul must express itself in melody. And yet, how many times do we fail to respond to God’s strength on our behalf? Remember the ten lepers that Jesus healed? Only one came back to even give thanks. Can you imagine? Forget a victory in battle. Their body, full of putrefying skin, had just been miraculously healed, and nine out of ten did not even say, “Thanks.”  And sadly, Jesus noticed. He asked the one who returned, “Where are the other nine?” Unfortunately, He’s still asking today. Where are we? Where are our praising hearts? Where are the songs of our souls that lift to the heavens in adoration for all that He has done for us? We have no excuse. We have been healed. Today let’s lift our voices in praise for all His strength on our behalf.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, my heart sings in praise and adoration for all You have done for me. You are the Almighty and all loving God who has saved my soul. I thank You and praise Your Holy name.
AMEN

Worship God Alone

TODAY’S VERSE
“Gideon made a sacred ephod from the gold and put it in Ophrah, his hometown. But soon all the Israelites prostituted themselves by worshiping it, and it became a trap for Gideon and his family.”
Judges 8:27 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
What was a great political victory ended up being a Spiritual defeat. The Israelites had done evil in Gods sight so He allowed the Midianites to take over their land and persecute them. An angel of God came to Gideon and told him that he was chosen by God to lead his people to victory over the Midianites. However, Gideon doubted the Angel and three different times he asked God for a sign in order to know if what he heard was true. It was a sort of divination like the casting of lots. This kind of testing God comes close to superstition. Soon the objects become sacred like magical bones or cards that we see in so many mystical practices. God warns about such practices. He does not allow idolatry nor does He want us to put magical powers in objects of chance. But that is what Gideon did. Here God led Gideon into battle and against all odds Gideon and the chosen 300 soldiers defeated a vast army. And Gideon knew it was God. God talked directly to him, yet after such a victory he took gold and made an Ephod. It was a vest worn by someone who was going to “divine” God’s will by casting bones or looking for signs. And the result was, instead of God getting praise and worship, people worshiped the Ephod. They relegated God’s mighty love, grace and power to a magical vest! What do we worship? What superstitions do we allow to creep into our life? What “magical” behavior must we perform in order to receive God’s grace? Today, worship God alone. He alone is the giver of love, grace, forgiveness and mercy. He alone deserves our praise and adoration. Worship Him– we need nothing else. 

TODAY’S PRAYER
Lord, so often I am so desperate for a sign I take my eyes off of You. Forgive me. You alone are worthy of all my praise and worship. You alone are all power, love and forgiveness. I worship You.
AMEN
