Verse Of The Day : I am still confident of this: I will see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living. Psalms 27:13 (NHEB).
LISTEN : It is hard to overcome obstacles when you are already defeated in your mind. This means that, to win in life you must win the battle of thoughts (imagination). You can’t win unless you have a winning mindset; and you can’t experience a future you can’t imagine. To experience a great future, you should first of all have it in your mind. My dear, if you can’t see it you can’t grab it. The future you want to experience you should first see with the eyes of faith. Because faith sees the invisible, therefore, it is not hard to believe that the invisible will eventually becomes visible. That is, when you walk by faith, your expectations will certainly become your experience (Mark 9:23). What you imagine and believes God for will find expression in your life. Right in the midst of troubles, David believed that, the best is yet to come. He said, “Therefore I am still confident of this: I will see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living.” (Psalms 27:13). Beloved, situations in your life shouldn’t kill your dream of a great and better future. Be confident of the future you desire to create, so that, when obstacles arise, they will not stop your progress, instead, it will bless you with experience for a greater height. Beloved, to create a great and better future for yourself, you must be positive and hopeful ; trust in the power of God ; and never lose hope. My dear, Hopelessness kills dreams and frustrates and abort destinies. Yes, hopelessness is an enemy of greatness. If you are hopeless your ability to attempt something new dies. So, no matter what happens, never lose hope. Beloved, don’t accept defeat. Always put on a winning mindset and you will win. Be wise!

TOPIC : ARE YOU PREPARED TO WORK FOR GOD?
Monday, March 2, 2020
Bible Verse : I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night comes, when no man can work. John 9:4
LISTEN : Are you prepared to work for God? My dear, now is the time. The time to work for God and pursue His purpose. We all owe our lives to Him. Therefore, our top priority should be to please Him always. (Matthew 6:33). We can work together with God to fulfill His purposes in the earth. We should fulfill our own purposes through God’s eternal purpose. Beloved, you are created to fulfill God’s purpose for your life. And this you must do with urgency because we all have limited time in the earth. You should discover why God created you and how to fulfill that purpose. Jesus said, “I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night comes, when no man can work.” (John 9:4). Like Jesus Christ, you should know your purpose of existence – you are created to serve God’s purpose. And the purpose of God for your life is to do His will and faithfully spread the good news of His kingdom to the world. So, pursue the will of God and fulfill His purpose for your life, because you do not have all the time in the world. Be wise!
Prayer : Heavenly Father, I know that, I am created to do your will. Therefore, help me to serve you for the rest of my life, in Jesus’ name, amen!
