Do you ever feel overwhelmed by all of the needs of those around you?
Maybe you feel that your small contribution will never make a difference in the world. Never underestimate what one small demonstration of God’s love could do for someone . . .
because the love of God is the power that changes lives.
If you feel the Lord speak to your heart about loving on someone, then do it.
You might end up buying your friend’s coffee, or babysitting so a couple can have a much-needed date night, or simply being there to listen when your coworker works through some personal struggles.
There is power in loving and blessing others, even when it seems small!
So today, if you have an opportunity to love someone in a small way, remember, it could have a big impact on their life!
Today, God wants to be obvious in your life!
He wants to be obvious in your relationships, obvious in your home, obvious at your job, obvious in your finances and so much more.
How do you make Him obvious?
You simply need to trust in His great love for you and the promises of His Word! His heart is to bless you! The more you know His incredible love for you, the more you will experience Him in all areas of your life. Then you will begin to pour out the overflow of His love into the lives of others, making Him obvious in every way.
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit(Romans 15:13 NIV).
I want you to think about a dollar bill. You don’t know it’s history, what it has paid for or where it has been, but you do know its value. The value is determined by the United States Treasury Department that printed the bill.
Do you know it is no different when God looks at you? It doesn’t matter where you have been or what you have done, God knows your value because when He looks at you He sees His Son. You are worth far more than gold. He loves you unconditionally and has a plan and purpose for your existence.
So, every time you see a dollar bill remember . . .
Your worth is found in Jesus!
You are enough!
Everything in our world is geared to tell you that you are not enough. If you’re the best athlete in the world, you’re still not quite good enough. Or you’re not good looking enough, not smart enough, not talented enough. We’ve all heard these lies.
That’s why it is crucial that we find our identity in Christ!
Second Corinthians 12:9 says, But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.
Christ in you is always enough!
When you were a child, did your mom ever tell you to, “Stand up straight and don’t slouch!”? Or perhaps, you tell this to your own children.
Posture can say a lot about someone, especially when it comes to their confidence. It’s the same with your spiritual POSTURE!
The enemy wants to keep you hunched over so that you never get a glimpse of what God wants to do in your life. If you can learn to recognize the lies and have the determination to stand up straight, you will be amazed at the outcome.
A change in your posture means a change in your PERSPECTIVE!
When you are looking to God and His purposes, your limitations become opportunities to see Him do the impossible!
