Your present condition does not dictate your future, your faith in God does.
The Word of God is living and active. If you confess the Word of God over your heart and life, it will not return void. We encourage you to meditate on these confessions.

Confession


And I have put my words in thy mouth, and I have covered thee in the shadow of mine hand, that I may plant the heavens, and lay the foundations of the earth, and say unto Zion, Thou art my people. (Isaiah 51:16)

The Lord has put His words in my mouth therefore I shall be his mouthpiece, and because He covers me I shall not be afraid to speak.

Selling Out

Our Daily Devotional:

Selling Out

Hebrews 12:16 NIV: See that no one is sexually immoral, or is godless like Esau, who for a single meal sold his inheritance rights as the oldest son.

The momentary wants, passing pleasures, or even immediate needs of this life can at times easily cloud our thinking, and draw us to act in ways that are not truly in our own best interest. Esau, in his moment of need, considered his birthright a worthless thing. "Look, I am about to die," Esau told Jacob, "What good is the birthright to me?" As Christians, we have a birthright ourselves�an inheritance in the Kingdom of Heaven. It is truly a shame how many of us, for needs or wants, will consider our inheritance as nothing. We may not think of it that way. But when we knowingly sin in order to fulfill a selfish momentary want, or we decide our need outweighs God´s will and do not put our faith in Him, we sell out.

Hello Gi,

Temptations come and temptations go, the question is will we give into them or not? We can rejoice when we don't and praise God for His strength. It isn't sin until we give into the temptation so may we be strong always in the Lord and look ahead to the prize/reward when we don't give in!

Repentance is a God given opportunity to enter into the blessings of the Lord and escape from the oppression of the enemy.
We would like to pray for you, please leave your request below.
