Stand Strong!

Have you ever heard this line “You can experience God’s best in your life”? But you feel like you don’t qualify. I remember going to a game show years ago. I lined up to see if I would be chosen to be on the show. The line was long. I was feeling like I would never get on the show. “I don’t know anybody. It must be fixed. People have been planted to make it look like the line is real…” I thought. Then we apply that thinking to not slight God and him letting us win on a game show.
In life how do you battle through the feelings of inadequacy and insecurity to live in a dimension where there is so much more that God has ordered for you to walk into.

Not just every once in a while.
Not just a few special times a year.
But today and every day moving forward!

Scripture calls it favor, and it belongs to you! But you must decide something first...

Are you going to settle for where you are? Or are you going to stand and believe that His everyday favor can take you places you never dreamed possible? It IS possible to settle for mediocrity, whether your life and circumstances are good OR bad.

Some of you may be going through difficult circumstances. You may be going through financial issues. Or you may have been given a bad report on your health. Or you have been dealing with relational problems that you just can’t seem to fix. No matter what is going on in your life, you can trust God today.

Look at the promise from the Bible in Jeremiah 29:11. I love how it reads in The Message translation. God says, “I know what I’m doing. I have it all planned out — plans to take care of you, not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for.”

God’s word promises that He will take care of you, not abandon you, and give you an amazing future. But it requires something from you. You’ve got to decide you’re not going to settle, that you’re going to believe for His best—His favor in your life.

Today, start declaring that you are more than a conqueror and that God will provide for your needs. And remember, nothing is impossible with God.

If you do this, I promise you that you’ll begin to see God change your circumstances. You will see His favor unleashed on your life.

God is going to take you places that you’ve never thought possible.

Remember, we serve a good God — a God who wants you to receive His best for you each and every day. When you believe this and live it out, your life will never be the same and you’ll live at a whole new level of blessing and favor!

Stand strong,
Joel & Terri
