See, I am doing a new thing!
Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?
I am making a way in the wilderness
and streams in the wasteland.- Isaiah 43:19
If there is one thing that I love about Jesus it is His ability to restore and redeem. Truly, He takes those things that life tries to ruin us with and if we are willing to stand firm, anchoring ourselves in God’s truth we will find the victory that is ours in Christ. It’s not a question of maybe, but its an absolute reality that today, in this present moment, no matter how painful or challenging it might, we have everything we need through the resurrection power and grace of the risen Lord Jesus.
I want you to chew on that thought for a moment. You have everything you need to win each battle thrown your way today through Jesus. Every lie, every deception, every bit of the enemy’s plot against you has no power over you unless you neglect the power inside of you through Jesus.
Yes, it is true that we give power to the lies of the enemy. We very easily allow ourselves to become pawns in his game of our destruction. Yet, we have the mind of Christ. We are more than conquerors and no weapon can be formed against us. Truly, His joy and His truth are what our hearts need. We must stand firm in it and stand upon it if we’re going to make it in this life.
Today, I’m choosing with everything inside of me to claim and live in the victorious life that I have in Christ. To believe good things for my situation and for the people in it. Understanding that the issue isn’t people or things, but an enemy who loves to twist, deceive and distract.
Lord, I am yours. I surrender my thoughts to you. Today I claim the victory that is mine in Christ over my thought life. Glorify your name in me, I pray, in Jesus name, Amen.
