The Same Power Lives in You

romans 8 11

Verse of the Day:  Romans 8:11

And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies because of his Spirit who lives in you.

As born again believers your body is a temple for the Holy Spirit. You have the same Spirit that raised Jesus Christ from the dead living inside of you. The grave could not hold Jesus, He was resurrected to be seated at the right hand of God. You are more than a conqueror over sin and death because you have the same victory through Jesus Christ! The same power that calms the raging sea, the same power that moves mountains, the same power that gives us hope lives in you and in me.

The Full Armor of God

Ephesians 6 11 2

Verse of the Day:  Ephesians 6:11

Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.

Just like a soldier going into battle you too must put on our full armor. God has equipped you with all you need to stand up to the devil’s schemes and plans. He has given you the belt of truth, the breastplate of righteousness, the gospel of peace, the shield of faith, the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God. Stand your ground against evil with your feet firmly rooted in the Lord and fight the good fight of the faith. There is one other thing you need before you go into battle, you must recognize that you already have the victory through Jesus Christ.

 

Walk by the Spirit

Galatians 5 16

Verse of the Day:  Galatians 5:16

So I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh.

It doesn’t matter what kind of temptation comes knocking at your door you can only get so far with your own willpower. You may be able to fight the desires of the flesh by yourself for a little while but soon willpower alone will not be enough. Instead of trusting your own willpower, trust in God’s power, His Word and the Holy Spirit to guide you in the way you should go. Instead of trying to do it on your own, walk by the Spirit and be victorious.

Start Your Day with Prayer

1 Corinthians 16 13 (2)

Verse of the Day:  1 Corinthians 16:13

Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong.

Whether you realize it or not, you are constantly fighting spiritual battles against the rulers of darkness and evil and you never know what the new day may bring. Be vigilant, on guard, standing firm in your beliefs. Be brave and courageous knowing that through Christ the victory is yours. Start each day with prayer asking God to give you courage and strength to face whatever comes your way.

More than Conquerors

Romans 8 37

 

Verse of the Day:  Romans 8:37

No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.

 

We may have confidence in knowing that no tribulation, suffering, persecution, absolutely nothing can separate us from the love of Christ.  His love is not earned so it cannot be lost, it is undeserved and limitless.  We are not just conquerors, we are more than conquerors, not just in some things but in all things through Jesus Christ!
