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.

We Wrestle Not

Our Daily Devotional:

We Wrestle Not

Ephesians 6:12 KJV: For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

What we wrestle against, as Paul writes, are principalities, powers, "the rulers of the darkness of this world," and "spiritual wickedness in high places." Or do we? That is, do we wrestle? Do we struggle against the things of this world that oppose God? Do we fight to be holy, to "throw off everything that hinders, and the sin that so easily entangles?" Do we wrestle against that which is ungodly, or threatens to bring ungodliness into our lives, the lives of others, or into the church? We are told in Hebrews, "In your struggle against sin, you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding your blood" (4:12). How far are we willing to go to rid ourselves of the things that cause us and others to stumble? Do we find we often selfishly give into our whims and wants from day to day? Or do we wrestle?

Abundant Rain

Deuteronomy 32:2 NIV: Let my teaching fall like rain and my words descend like dew, like showers on new grass, like abundant rain on tender plants.

There are a great many things we hope to grow into, or hope to grow up to be, or hope to keep growing toward. We are like the plants that seek the dew and showers. Blessed are those who seek to remain in Christ as a branch connected to the Vine. We will certainly be filled and we will grow and will prosper. As we grow, a wonderful thing happens. We become less concerned about looking inward. We become less occupied with our own personal spiritual development and we begin to concern ourselves with the needs of others. Our hearts turn toward being ministers of God´s grace, stewards of His word, ready in season and out of season to give an account of the hope we have in Him. We look around at those who need and we pray that through us, a little rain might fall-the kind of rain that nurtures spiritual growth in others. Consider for a moment, the prosperity of life when your heart becomes like Christ´s, being outward focused, and ready to be poured out into the lives of others. That is the measure of true prosperity.
