8 “But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”
Today’s Inspiration: Wishing you a joyous blessed Pentecost. These are the days of miracles. We need to be like Stephen who is full of faith and power and did great wonders and signs among the people. Acts 6:5. No one was able to resist the wisdom and the Spirit by which he spoke. V10. Such wisdom was also in King Solomon who received great wisdom from the Lord the world has never seen.
How essential it is for us to topple the work of the enemy with the wisdom of God by our proclamation through His magnified word. His word heals and delivers you from wrath. His word ensures the transfer of wealth from the kingdom of darkness to the Kingdom of His love. Walk in the light so that it will enlighten every dark road you tread.
For every trial there is a root. Pray to the Lord for the root to be revealed. Your physical problem is either related to a spiritual root or a natural negligence. If it is natural negligence it must be dealt with in the natural way. But if it is due to a spiritual root you must address it and bind the word of God to your spirit and loose the physical problems that caused the pain in the natural. Both repentance and binding and loosing is needed.
To break free, we have to control the mind that is always filled with fear and insecurity which is the biggest root of our problems. God did not give us a spirit of fear but a mind of love. Power and a sound mind when we were first baptised in the spirit. Acts 1:8, 2 Timothy 1:7. We need to count our blessings and name them one by one. Even if you have no strength to do what you desire to do, you can read, write and reflect the lessons from the trial and emerge as overcomer. Revelation 12:11. Remember that you are more than conquerors so don’t let Satan torment, harass or deceive you. Do not be ignorant of satanic devices. God be praised. Let’s be filled today with fresh baptism of the spirit.
Prayer: Lord fill me, mould me, align me, refine me to Your will. We are Your workmanship and stand steadfastly on Your promises. Let our faith not be shipwrecked but be used by You to perform wonders for the Glory of Your name. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
1 John 4:18
18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love.
Today’s Inspiration: Fear is our greatest enemy and has to be conquered by love for love casts out fear. 1 John 4:18. To nurture the damaged trees of wrong done to us is to be a prisoner of the past. To refuse to forgive is also destructive. Unforgiveness choked the life out of marriage or out of family relationship and friendship. To avoid forgiving would mean imprisoning your emotions.
It costs the Lord Jesus at Cavalry to bring us forgiveness. If we are to bear the image of God we cannot afford not to forgive our offender. Forgiveness carries a condition that it starts with us first to forgive the offender. To accept God’s forgiveness and to refuse to forgive our offenders is a wicked act as Jesus explained in the parable of unforgiven servant in Matthew 18:21-35. When you don’t forgive and you choose to be bitter against the offender, you have made yourself a slave to the offender.
