A Winning Strategy Against The Enemy

Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” (James 4:7)

 
Scripture refers to the enemy as a roaring lion on the prowl. And on the surface, it doesn’t look like we stand a chance. He’ll attack you through anxiety, frustration, anger, sadness, and confusion.
 
The good news is his attack isn’t a sneak attack. He is roaring. You can hear him coming.
 
The question is… how do you win against a roaring lion?
 
Here’s the key: You don’t run — you resist!
 
You stand your ground in Christ and ask for His help because only He can protect you from the enemy’s attacks.
 
Alone, you’re an easy target. But when you stand in Christ’s authority, that’s when the enemy has to run from YOU.

Today’s Word With Joel & Victoria Osteen – Wait With Confidence

TODAY’S SCRIPTURE:

“…See how the farmer waits for the land to yield its valuable crop and how patient he is for the autumn and spring rains. You too, be patient and stand firm…” 
(James 5:7-8 NIV)

TODAY’S WORD:

In the book of James, the Bible tells us that we should wait for God’s promises like a farmer waits for his harvest. Now, I’ve never seen a farmer plant a crop and then worry night and day about whether or not it’s going to come up. He doesn’t lose sleep thinking, “Oh, I hope that my corn is going to take root. Please, God, let my corn bring a harvest.” No, he waits with confidence, knowing that the harvest will come. He does his part, and he knows that seed will produce a good crop. 

In the same way, we should wait confidently for the promises of God. We have to stand firm on His Word. It’s not enough to just hope that your situation is going to turn around. Instead of the attitude, “I hope I get well,” have the attitude of confidence and say, “Thank You, Lord, that I am getting well.” Start waiting like the farmer. Wait with a knowing. Wait with confidence. Be sure that as you put God’s Word into practice, just like the farmer, you will see that harvest of blessing in your own life in return.

PRAYER FOR TODAY:

Heavenly Father, thank You for Your faithfulness in my life. Today, I choose to stand firm on Your Word. I choose to follow Your commands and believe that I will see Your promises come to pass in my life in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Today’s Word With Joel & Victoria Osteen – Waiting 

TODAY’S SCRIPTURE:

“…Faith without works is dead”
(James 2:20, NKJV)

TODAY’S WORD:

Are you waiting for God to do something in your life? One thing I’ve learned is that waiting should not be a passive thing. When we’re waiting the correct way, we’re on the lookout. We talk like what we are believing for is going to happen. We act like it’s going to happen. We’re making preparations. 

It’s just like when you’re expecting someone for dinner; you don’t wait till they show up before you decide to start cooking. Most likely you start early in the day. You make sure the house is clean, you go to the grocery store, and maybe you buy some flowers for the table. You make preparations because you’re expecting someone. Well, that’s the attitude we need to have while we’re waiting for God’s promises to come to pass. Put your faith to work. Prepare for the answer to come. Keep standing, keep believing, and keep hoping because your answer is on the way!

PRAYER FOR TODAY:

Father God, I choose to put actions behind my faith today. I trust that You are at work in my life. I will wait the right way—with expectancy—knowing that my faith in You opens the door for Your hand to move in my life in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Be Humble (James 3:13)

Is God Waiting On YOU?

“Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.” (James 1:22)

 
Have you ever prayed for God to move a certain way in your life, and then it seemed like nothing happened?
 
It can be discouraging to feel like God doesn’t hear your prayers. But the reality is, He always hears them and He always cares.
 
So, why the delay?
 
Sometimes, it may be that our plans simply don’t line up with His. But other times when we’re waiting on God, it may actually be that He’s waiting on us.
 
God may want to do something not just for you, but throughyou. You may be the vessel He wants to operate through in order to make a difference in the situation you’re praying about.
 
I don’t know what God has put in your heart, but if it feels like nothing’s happening and you’re stuck waiting, perhaps He’s actually waiting on you to take action. -Steven Furtick
