Fresh Hope – Day 109

Whatever you see, experience and hear, has POTENTIAL to not only affect you, but also to define you.

If something bad happens, if you hear something that’s negative, if you experience a situation that’s not good, you can potentially be defined by that. It can AFFECT your life… If you let it.

We let things that have happened to us, define us.

‘I’m no good… I can’t… It won’t happen…’ are defining statements that will affect us. Words have the potential to determine our future.

God’s Word has the POWER, not just the potential to define your life.

When you read or hear the Word of God, and when you dwell on it, when you know it, when you start to speak it and live by it, it will define your life.

Here are some great promises and reminders this morning… Dwell on them and let THEM define you.

When you think you can’t do something…

“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” – Philippians 4:13

Can I believe God for this?

“Whatsoever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it shall be yours” – Mark 11:24

I don’t feel strong enough to fight this…

“He that is in me is greater than he that is in the world” – 1 John 4:4

God, my enemy is too big…

“If God is for me, who can be against me?” – Romans 8:31

Why isn’t this plan working, Lord?

“Many are the plans in a man’s heart, but it’s the Lord’s purpose that prevails” – Proverbs 19:21

Will God help me out in financial difficulty?

“And my God will supply all my needs according to His glorious riches” – Philippians 4:19

God, have You got a great purpose for me?

“For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you” – Jeremiah 29:11

God, I feel like giving up…

“Do not grow weary in doing good, for at the proper time you will reap a harvest if you don’t give up” – Galatians 6:9

Lord, I don’t know which way to turn…

“I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go” – Psalm 32:8

God, where are You?

“Draw near to God and He’ll draw near to you” – James 4:8

Lord, please help me out here…

“When you walk, your steps won’t be hampered; when you run, you will not stumble” – Proverbs 4:12

Nothing seems to be going right, Lord…

“There is no wisdom, no insight, no plan that can succeed against the Lord” – Proverbs 21:30

I challenge you to take those verses and make a note of them, highlight them in your Bible, pin them on your fridge…

If you don’t read it, you won’t know it.

If you don’t know it, you can’t use it.

If you don’t use it, it won’t define your life.

Love His Word. Speak His Word. It has the POWER to change your life.
