THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK
Is there an area of your life in which you need God’s help but fail to ask His guidance and assistance because sometimes you feel you’re asking for too much and too often? Scripture encourages us to go to God with all our needs and even tells us in James 4:2 that we have not because we ask not! In truth, Jesus longs to give us the desires of our hearts, pour out His favor and blessings. Ask the Lord for what you need. You don’t have to be overwhelmed by depression, despair, sickness, or other challenges of the enemy. Remember, the same Spirit that raised Christ from the dead dwells in us through Jesus; and there is nothing that can stand against the power of God. If we rise up and declare by faith, “He whom the Son sets free is free indeed and claim our victory in saying, “I am restored and healed in the name of Jesus!” and “ No weapon formed against me will prosper!” , we declare the Word, and activate His power within us! Just step out in faith and ask for God’s favor! Pray, asking Him to search your heart and mind and cleanse any unforgiveness that may be blocking your prayers and affecting your relationship with Him. Though someone may have wronged you, nothing on this earth is worth losing your peace with Almighty God. Today, choose forgiveness and don’t let anything stand in the way of the good things and wonderful plans and purpose God has in store for your future! Just ask Him for your needs, fear not, and walk righteously before Him! He’ll be there!
HAVE A BLESSED WEEK IN THE LORD!
