Today’s Inspiration: As we approach 2019, a year of fruitfulness, it is the season for evaluation of performance for 2018 n renewal of new goals. If our faith is true and sincere, we will have no difficulty to obey the word of God, and walk through the promises. Words without action cannot bear fruit. God’s word cannot be profitable to us unless we have faith to appropriate it to a reality.

Jeremiah 23:29.
In the days of Moses, Joshua, David and Gideon’s days, it was not by sword that they see miracles and possess the land nor did the arms of the people bring them victory. It was His right hand and the might of His countenance and His Love for them that brought them victory. Psalm 44:3.
It was God who is our King that brought victories to Israel. Therefore we should boast of the Lord forever. Through God only can we push back our enemies. So it was not the tools and skill that is important though it helps. Most importantly is God’s grace and love that brings us victory over the enemies.

It’s only when we appropriate the word in our hearts can our faith be strong to bring His promises to reality and all fear, anxiety and stress evaporates. Psalm 1:1-3. God wants to flourish you just as He flourished men and women of God since ancient days.
