Topic: How To Access What Is Inside You [Monday February 12, 2018]
“I had fainted unless I had believed to see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.” –Psalm 27:13 (KJV)
Yesterday I told you that all that you need to succeed and shake your world is in you. The way to access what is in you is to first believe you have it. From our scriptural text, David said he almost fainted. He said everything around him was making him faint and give up, but he had to believe.
Child of God, chose to believe the word of God! Refuse to allow your circumstance, dictate to you. Don’t allow the feelings, the pressure or whatever it is that is happening around you to determine your state. You belong to God and God cannot fail. If God cannot fail, you cannot fail either.
The Psalmist said ‘I would have fainted unless I believe to see the goodness of God. In order words, I am not returning without achievement. I will not give excuses; I will succeed.
Christians are supposed to be tough, based on the information that they have received that their position is solid. Beloved, your position is unshakeable. We are standing on an unshakeable ground. The Bible says having done all to stand. Stand, therefore! You don’t stand frightened and shaken, you stand your ground.
Not only should you believe, give Him the praise. Thank Him for what you have. Thank Him for His mercy that endures forever. It doesn’t come for a moment, it endures forever. His loving kindness towards you is forever. In Psalm 107 for about five times scripture said the same thing, ‘for His mercy endureth forever’. Learn to praise Him for His goodness. Learn to praise Him for His mercy because it is because of His mercy that we are not consumed. God by Himself qualified you, so don’t disqualify yourself. There is so much inside you; so bring it out.
