“The LORD is faithful to all his promises and loving toward all he has made.” Psalm 145:13
…One of my all time favorite passages. Can you not feel the Peace, the Comfort, the Promise of His Faithfulness? One of the saddest things I observe in others is when they give up on their own promises from God. Don’t give up. Don’t spend your time pondering the shortcomings of the past. Allowing your mind to fear disappointment, even if it has been a reality with sting upon your life, it isn’t going to help to Comfort you.
~But God CAN, and because He is with you, you CAN, too!
- C=Commit all your ways to Christ, in Him Alone is the Victory!
“Commit your work to the LORD, and your plans will be established.”
- A= ALL things are possible with God!
“…but with God all things are possible.” (Matt. 19:26)
- N=Never give up!
“And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.” Gal. 6:9
Because I work a lot with people on their health and fitness goals, this is an area I see people give up a lot. Their quitting may only be temporary and sometimes they persevere, only to fail to see that they haven’t really begun at all, like they never find that next gear of tenacity.
A large part of Overcoming is:
- recognizing the barriers that repeat themselves on your path.
- recognizing that when God sets you on a path you stay on it and persevere until He tells you otherwise.
- recognizing and addressing the self imposed limitations you place upon yourself OR the self imposed limitations of others that you allow to hold you back as well.
I see these same patterns in the lives of Believers as they stay in a holding pattern of delayed blessing or break through. God is Sovereign and He is Faithful. IF he has made a promise and embedded it within your heart, you can rest with absolute security that it is yours at HIS appointed time and season. The One who has begun a good work in you is faithful to complete it. In the meantime, He wants to shape us up- just like consistent and persistent rest, exercise and diet-we will be transformed physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. The more we yield, the quicker the Victories come!
He’s got you! And doesn’t it feel good? You are loved by the Absolute Beloved of Heaven. He is in you, on you, all around you. He is your vehicle and He desires to use you to be His vehicle for break through and lasting change in others. You can do it, I know YOU CAN!
Much Love, Prayers and well wishes on this Fine Friday!
