“Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.”
Philippians 3:13-14 NKJV
“I long for you to desire and pursue My destiny for your life more than you desire to hold on to your past. I am your strength. I am the strength you need to release those you’ve held prisoner in your heart through unforgiveness. You will release them and you will let them go, says the LORD. Know that I will never let the pain of your past outweigh the glorious future I have in store for you. My daughter, I’m creating in you a desire for Me and My will for your life. You will enjoy what you’ve never experienced in Me. You will let go of the familiar, and you will reach with everything in you to lay hold of My purpose and plan. You will let go of the hurt and pain, and you will reach and lay hold of all I have preordained for you to walk in. Your days of being a victim are over. Your days of replaying and reliving the past are over. That’s behind you now. I will help you walk in total and complete freedom. Says the LORD.”
“Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.” Luke 10:19
In my life, people have thought my soft voice and small frame meant that I was weak. However, they were amazed to see Jesus, who is the Lion of Judah, roar from within me.
It doesn’t matter how short your stature, how soft your voice, or how small your frame. Nor does it matter your economic status, ethnicity, or background. You are strong and powerful in Christ! Let Him roar through your obedience and lifestyle! Let Him roar through your determination and trust in God! The Lord being on your side makes you a mighty force to be reckoned with.
He is your power source, so stay vitally connected to Him. More now than ever, draw everything you need from your relationship with the Lord. You are powerful and He has given you the victory through Christ!
Prayer: Thank you Lord for speaking to me. No matter the sound of my voice or the size of my frame, You have made me strong and mighty. Help me Lord to walk in the power You have given me. Roar from deep within me and be glorified in my life. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
(Read Matthew 28:18; I John 4:4; 1 Corinthians 15:57)
