Just Alive or True Life?

Daily Encouragement – 

How are you doing? Are you just barely existing? Is your soul truly alive? 

Life is so much more than having a beating heart and drawing breath. All the animals are alive, but they do not have life. Just because you are living does not mean you have life. 

I have designed you to rule and reign with Me! I have called you to more than just a meager existence, but to be fruitful, multiply, and build My Kingdom! 

You are designed to thrive and excel in every area of your life! You have been called out of mundane survival to know Me and make My name great in all the earth. 

Come close to Me! Follow Me! Obey My voice so your very being may have the true life I designed for you! Come and step into My Kingdom of fruitfulness and true life as you walk with Me! I love you My child!!!

Jeremiah 38:20 But Jeremiah said, “They shall not deliver you. Please, obey the voice of the Lord which I speak to you. So it shall be well with you, and your soul shall live.

Powerful, Potent, Precious!!!

Daily Encouragement – 

I love you My child. I am opening up the heavenlies and accomplishing objectives on the earth just because you ask. If you only knew how powerful your prayers really are.

I do not let even the smallest seemingly pathetic prayers fall to the ground. I take them up and place them in a treasure chest where I keep my most valuable things. These prayers are treasures to be poured out upon you at a specific time for a specific purpose. 
In the same way, they are powerful weapons with which to combat the enemy. 

Continue to press in to Me and watch the treasure trove and spiritual armory overflow and the enemy be beaten back because of your prayers powering and enabling My servants to gain the victory.

Your prayers are not pathetic or puny but powerful, potent, and precious for advancing My Kingdom. Never back down! Never relent! Never give up! I love you My child!

2 Corinthians 10:3-6

True Ministers of God

Are you a True Minister of God? Read on to find out everything this entails…

This morning, while reading in 2 Corinthians, I stumbled across some very interesting verses that are important for us to dwell on that our lives may be lived as God desires. For those of you who have decided to become a True Follower of Christ, you are called a minister of Christ (2 Cor. 3:6). Although you may never be called to be a full-time minister or pastor as I was eleven years ago, you are a minister right now!!! In His letter to the Corinthians, Paul gives each one of us an idea of how we should be living, and what we should expect as we follow Him!!!

2 Corinthians 6:3-4a “We live in such a way that no one will stumble because of us, and no one will find fault with our ministry. In everything we do, we show that we are true ministers of God.”

This is something we must always be wary of. Our lives as representations of Who God is must not give Him a bad light in anything that we do or do not do. We must be always living as His children. No pressure! I am thankful that the grace of God covers my failures, but I must be open and say that I am not perfect…and neither are you. So I am in good company 🙂 Our openness and transparency about our faults allows others to grab ahold of the truth of grace working in us.

4b “We patiently endure troubles and hardships and calamities of every kind. 5 We have been beaten, been put in prison, faced angry mobs, worked to exhaustion, endured sleepless nights, and gone without food.

Most of us have experienced at least some of these, but we have much more to expect if we are truly following in the footsteps of Christ!!!

6 We prove ourselves by our purity, our understanding, our patience, our kindness, by the Holy Spirit within us, and by our sincere love.

How are you proving yourself this week? Ask Holy Spirit to help you be the proof of Christ in the midst of every negative situation.

7 We faithfully preach the truth. God’s power is working in us. We use the weapons of righteousness in the right hand for attack and the left hand for defense.

The Truth of God radiating from us, the power of God working through us, and His righteousness working in us are the weapons and defense against the enemy and his forces!!!

8 We serve God whether people honor us or despise us, whether they slander us or praise us. We are honest, but they call us impostors. 9 We are ignored, even though we are well known. We live close to death, but we are still alive. We have been beaten, but we have not been killed. 10 Our hearts ache, but we always have joy. We are poor, but we give spiritual riches to others. We own nothing, and yet we have everything.”

It does not matter where we are, what we are doing, what people’s response to us, or accusations against us are. Our situation does not dictate how we are to act or conduct ourselves. As we rely fully upon The Lord, He will give us the ability to triumph in any circumstance and shine forth His glory in every trial.

Remember, that no matter where you are or what you are doing, you are being a minister of Christ!!! Are you proclaiming the Truth of who He is and what He is doing for you no matter what is going on around you? Are you being a light of hope in a dark world? Are you giving and accurate representation of who He is? Or are you causing others to view Christ falsely or making Him seem powerless and puny?

You are a minister of Christ and I bless you with the ability to radiate His truth, walk in His righteousness, and bring glory to God through the working of His power and sharing of His love!!!
