Ten or so years ago, there was a movie entitled “Fifty First Dates” starring Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore.   In the story. . .Drew Barrymore has short-term memory loss; she can’t remember anything that happened the day before.

So every morning the Sandler character has to woo the Barrymore character all over again from the beginning hoping she’ll like him.  At the end of the movie, he prepares a video for her to watch each morning which remind her of things in her life which she was forgotten.

That’s a movie. . .but let me tell you about something and someone who is real.

There are seven things God is giving each of us.  However, sometimes it seems we have short term memory loss when it comes to remembering what God has done for us.

That’s why we have a book of life. . .called the Bible which we can and should refer to on a daily basis.

The enemy of your future...Satan only has three abilities: to deceive, to tempt and to accuse.

You can defeat him with three scripturally guaranteed strategies.

Revelation 12:10-11 in the King James Version says:

“And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.

The verse says that when salvation, strength, the Kingdom of God and the power of Christ come. . .the devil. . .the accuser of the brethren is cast down.

Revelation 12:10 in the Amplified Bible says it this way.

“Then I heard a strong (loud) voice in heaven, saying, Now it has come—the salvation and the power and the kingdom (the dominion, the reign) of our God, and the power (the sovereignty, the authority) of His Christ (the Messiah); for the accuser of our brethren, he who keeps bringing before our God charges against them day and night, has been cast out!

I remember the first time I ever spoke in London there were probably 500 plus people in our Debt Free Army rally.

If you’ve ever heard me speak at one of our seminars you know that I enjoy getting people to laugh while driving home the points about financial freedom.

But on this Saturday morning. . .the audience wasn’t laughing even though my words should have prompted laughter. English audiences are known to be a bit reserved.

There were a few empty reserved seats on the front row so I climbed on top of those chairs and asked how many of those in attendance had ever heard of James Brown, the American soul singer.  Probably, 95% of the room raised their hands while smiling.

So I started singing. . .yes, I started singing “I Feel Good” by James Brown but I changed the lyrics a bit.

“Wo!  I feel good (dun a dun a dun a dun) just like Jesus said I would.

I feel good, (dun a dun a dun a dun) like I knew I would
Jesus  is So good, so good, I got Jesus.  (dun a dun a dun)

Never let your circumstances define your destiny.  Rather create the circumstances that will assure your destiny.
