Topic: Achieve More For Him [Saturday, June 17th]
Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place (2 Corinthians 2:14).*_
In these last days, the Lord has specially graced His Church for significant attainments and ever-increasing glory. If there was ever a time to commit yourself to the Lord and do more for Him, it’s now. However, don’t expect everything to go smoothly just because you’ve decided to do more for the Lord. You’re likely to face adversities for daring to go the extra mile and do bigger things for the Master, but refuse to be moved. Our glory and victory in Christ is an eternal one. Read our opening verse again. In the midst of trouble, you’ll be triumphant as you set your focus on the Lord and what He’s called you to do.
Yes, there’s an adversary; there’s a dark realm over this world and in this world, which we’re set against; but the Word gives us clear instructions on what to do. It says, “Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand” (Ephesians 6:13).
Don’t weaken or cower under the pressure; put on the whole armour of God! Be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Trust Him, for you’re sufficient in His sufficiency, and as a result, you can achieve whatever you set your heart to achieve.
I’m from above. Though I live in this world that’s influenced by the devil, I don’t belong here; I hail from God. I refuse to bow to pressure; rather, I stand tall always, knowing the Lord is the strength of my life.
FURTHER STUDY: || James 1:2-4 My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; 3 Knowing [this], that the trying of your faith worketh patience. 4 But let patience have [her] perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing. ||
|| 1 Corinthians 10:13 There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God [is] faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear [it]. ||
|| Philippians 2:12-13 Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. 13 For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of [his] good pleasure. ||
