He sets the course for victory

“He holds victory in store for the upright, He is a shield to those whose walk is blameless, for He guards the course of the just and protects the way of His faithful ones” – Proverbs 2:7-8.

Are you facing a challenge or difficulty that seems overwhelming? When you stand strong and remain faithful to God, He promises to set your course for victory. And victory doesn´t necessarily mean everything is going to go our way all the time or work out the way we planned. The Bible says that the real battle we face isn´t in our circumstances, it´s in our minds. The enemy is after your thoughts. He´s after your peace and joy. He knows that when you have peace, it´s a sign that you are connected to the Father. When you hold on to your peace and choose to be joyful, you are walking in victory, and it´s just a matter of time before your circumstances line up.

Remember, God knew every person who would wrong you, and He´s already laid out your vindication. God knew every disappointment, and He´s already laid out new opportunities. God knew everything that would be stolen, and He has already laid out your restoration. Rejoice today knowing that He has set your course for victory in every area of your life.

Stumbling block to stepping stone

“For though a righteous man falls seven times, he rises again…” – Proverbs 24:16a.

Life is full of things that try to push us down. We all face disappointments and setbacks. Maybe you got some bad news concerning your health or maybe some other problems. That was a setback. It’s easy to get discouraged or lose your enthusiasm or even be tempted to just settle where you are. But if we’re going to see God’s best, we have to have a “bounce back” mentality. That means when you get knocked down, you don’t stay down. You get back up again. You have to know that every time adversity comes against you, it’s a setup for a comeback.

Remember, as a believer, the same power that raised Christ from the dead lives on the inside of you. There is no challenge too difficult, no obstacle too high, no sickness, no disappointment, no person, nothing that can keep you from your God given destiny. If you stay in faith, then God will turn what was meant to be a stumbling block into a stepping stone, and you’ll move forward as a champion full of faith and victory.

Make Room

“A good man leaves an inheritance to his children’s children, but the wealth of the sinner is stored up for the righteous.” – Proverbs 13:22.

Notice, God has already laid up good things for you, They already have your name on them. If you’ll keep honoring God and making room for them, then eventually they will find their way into your hands, the hands of the righteous. That means right now something is headed your direction. If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, then you are righteous.

My question is, are you making room for it? Are you taking off the limits in your thinking? Get rid of any old thoughts that are talking negative, There will always be voices that will try to talk you out of it. But that’s when you have to rise up in faith and embrace His promises so you can make room for the blessings He has in store for you.

Life without a dream.

“Where there is no revelation, the people cast off restraint…” – Proverbs 29:18.

We know an orphanage, every Sunday they go down to the slums and take a few children to the beach. They call it “Dream Day.” As the children play in the sand and water, as they look at the beautiful ocean and watch the magnificent sunsets, they talk to them about how God knew them before they were formed in their mother’s womb, how they have seeds of greatness on the inside. They speak vision into them. Now, they’re finding that these children from the slums are overcoming incredible odds, getting scholarships to colleges, breaking out of poverty, becoming leaders in the community. Their dreams are coming true.

Scripture tells us that when people don’t have a revelation of God’s love and His Word, ultimately, they perish. It doesn’t say where there is no money, where there is no opportunity, where there is no talent people perish. What limits us is a lack of vision and understanding about God’s plan for our lives. Today, encourage yourself to let God’s Word shape your vision of the future. Let today be your dream day. Set aside the cares of the world. Set aside distractions and worries and look to Jesus, the Author and Finisher of your faith.

Right companions

“A man of many companions may come to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.” – Proverbs 18:24.

Your destiny is too big to accomplish on your own. That’s why it’s so important to be connected to the right people. We have to understand that God has already arranged for certain people to speak faith into you. He has already placed people in your path that will inspire you, challenge you, and help you accomplish your dreams. The reason some people never reach their highest potential is because they never get away from the wrong people.

Recognize today that not everyone can go where God is taking you. You’ve got to be connected with people who understand your destiny. You don’t have time to spend on people who are always pushing you down, telling you what you can’t do, or never giving you their approval no matter how hard you try. Friend, life is too short to drag people along. If you will get the wrong people out of your life, then God will bring in the right people so you can fulfill the destiny He has in store for you.
