Anything is Possible

“What do you mean, If I can?” Jesus asked. “Anything is possible if a person believes.”

~ Mark 9:23 [NLT]

Some days can be a bit lackluster or uninspiring. If you’re having too many of those days, maybe it’s time to be inspired to do great things. It’s possible if you believe. However, this belief is not in your capabilities but rather in God who can provide for you something far greater than what you’re thinking now. Use your imagination then trust God!

RESPONSIBILITY OF TEACHERS 
1 Timothy 3:2-3; James 3:1

In Jesus’ Name, I Pray God’s Will for You

May you realize that with the privilege of sharing the gospel comes a great responsibility. I pray that your behavior will always be above reproach. May you be temperate, self-controlled, gentle, and able to teach. I pray that you will not forget that those who teach are judged more strictly. I pray, therefore, that you will always remain in Him and walk closely with our Lord, Jesus Christ.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Daily Wisdom

“He had to be made like his brothers in every way, in order that he might become a merciful and faithful high priest in service to God, and that he might make atonement for the sins of the people.”

~ Heb 2:17

What heart can conceive or tongue express, the infinite depths of the Redeemer’s condescension in thus being made like unto his brethren—that the Son of God should assume a finite nature, subject to the sinless infirmities necessarily connected with a time-state and a dwelling on earth; that he should leave the bosom of his Father in which he had lain before all worlds, and should consent to become a inhabitant of this world of tears; to breathe earthly air; to be an eye-witness of, and himself share in human sorrows; to have before his eyes the daily spectacle of human sins; to be banished so long from his native home; to endure hunger, weariness, and thirst; to be subject to the persecutions of men, the flight of all his disciples, and the treachery of one among them whose hand had been with him on the table; not to hide his face from shame and spitting, but to be mocked, struck, buffeted, and scourged, and at last to die an agonizing death between two malefactors, amid scorn and infamy, and covered, as men thought, with everlasting confusion and disgrace! O what infinite condescension and mercy are displayed in these sufferings and sorrows of an incarnate God! The Lord give us faith to look to him as suffering them for our sake!

Be Rooted

Don’t team up with those who are unbelievers. How can righteousness be a partner with wickedness? How can light live with darkness?

~ 2 Corinthians 6:14 [NLT]

It can be a challenge at times to work with unbelievers. Putting God first is a major paradigm shift that changes how many decisions are made. Because of this, it is very important to be strong and rooted so that you influence Godly ways onto others and not soak in the ways of an earthly mind. Remember to be a light to others by showing others how God always shines love and grace. 

Share Your Burdens

Share each other’s burdens, and in this way obey the law of Christ.

~ Galatians 6:2 [NLT]

Life was not meant to be done alone. We are communal creatures. We were created both to be in community with one another but also to be in a relationship with God. When we go through tough times, we need a tribe of trusted others to rely on. Be willing to share your burdens with others and be open to help others when they are in need of a friend to lean on too!

Evening Prayer

OVERCOMING FEAR 
Joshua 1:6; 1 John 4:18

In Jesus’ Name, I Pray God’s Will for You

I pray that you can overcome fear, for there is no grace with fear. May God strengthen you with confidence in His love, forgiveness and acceptance so there will be no place for fear. Remember that there is no fear in love but perfect love casts out fear. Whenever the father of lies feeds false and exaggerated ideas into your mind, I pray that you will know that Jesus has overcome the enemy! Instead, abide in God’s Word so that you shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free. May you be strong and courageous; do not be terrified, do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
