The Matters of the Heart

“Jesus didn’t say, “Whosoever shall speak to God about this mountain.” He said we should speak directly to the mountain the desired end result. From a worldly point of view, that sounds foolish. But 1 Corinthians 1:27 explains that God has chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise. It’s always going to sound foolish to the world when a Christian talks as if what God has promised is reality, especially when those promises seem to contradict the natural evidence around us. But if you want to keep the enemy defeated, that’s the kind of talking you’d better be doing. The Bible says God Himself talks that way! In Romans 4:17, it says. “He calleth those things which be not as though they were.” God doesn’t wait for circumstances to line up before He speaks. He causes them to line up because He speaks. You can do the same thing if you’ll make your words agree with His and speak them out of your mouth in faith. “But what if nothing happens right away?” you may ask. “What if the circumstances don’t immediately change?” When Jesus spoke to the fig tree in Mark 11:14, He didn’t go back and check to see if anything had happened to it. No, once He had spoken it, He considered it done. Follow His example. Let your faith speak. Agree with God’s Word!”

What a word the day before our UNITY prayer. We speak in faith our desired end result and count it DONE in JESUS name.

Victors! More than Conquerors! That’s what the Bible says we are. I know you’ve heard that many times before, but today I want you to let the reality of it really sink in. I want you to spend some time meditating about what those terms actually mean.

The dictionary says that victory means “final and complete supremacy or superiority in battle or war, success in any contest or struggling involving the defeat of an opponent or the overcoming of obstacles.”

To conquer means “to get the better of in competition or struggle, to master, suppress, prevail over, overwhelm, surmount, to gain superiority, to subdue, to vanquish, to crush, to defeat.”

Once you get those definitions firmly in mind, you’ll realize in Jesus you’ve gotten much more than a ticket to heaven. You’ve got the best of the world you’re living in now. Through Him, you’ve overcome it, mastered it, suppressed it, and prevailed over it.

No wonder 1 Corinthians 15:57 shouts, “Thanks be to God! Because He gives us the victory, making us conquerors through our Lord Jesus Christ!”

Why don’t you shout too! Shout thanks to God today for making you an overcomer. Praise Him that you are joined up with the One who has conquered the world, the flesh, and the devil. Shout hallelujah and enjoy the victory!

The Matters of the Heart

The scripture “do unto others as you would have them do unto you,” is alive and doing very well. It does not matter what your title is, this is to us all.

Treat people the way you want to be treated. Reaping what you have sown will either be an elephant size pill or a delicious bowl of vanilla ice cream.

Be very careful how you treat people because it’s coming back to you.
