One of my favorite signs says:
“Good morning! I’ll be handling all your problems today. So relax and enjoy your day. Blessings, God. P.S. I love you.”
Someone once said:
“Do not face the day, until you have faced God in prayer.”
When you woke up this morning. . .did you expect this to be your best day ever?
What was your expectation for the day? Was it different than yesterday or the day before?
Did you have any expectation for today or were you just glad you made it through another night?
Do you expect to feel better today than you did yesterday? And, just as importantly, do you expect to feel even better tomorrow?
Do you expect God to move in the lives of your loved ones?
Do you see your days filled with previously unknown opportunities where you can tap into previously unused potential?
Do you expect to make divine appointments or supernatural connections?
Do you expect to receive divine revelation or direction during your morning prayer time?
Think about these questions. . .review them again and again in the outline we provide you when we teach the Word.
If you take the time to meditate on these questions, you will realize that with the proper inspiration and motivation, you can wake up full of supernatural energy to do great things for the Kingdom of God every day.
In Ephesians 1:19-20, the Apostle Paul tells us:
“I also pray that you will understand the incredible greatness of God’s power for us who believe him. This is the same mighty power that raised Christ from the dead and seated him in the place of honor at God’s right hand in the heavenly realms.”
Let’s look at seven ways to make your tomorrow and every day after . . .your best days ever.
1) Look at Every Day As A Potential Day for Miracles.
We serve a right now God. . .wanting to manifest His power IN THE PRESENT.
God is not the Great I Was or the Great I Will Be. He is the Great I AM. He is a present, right-now God.
Yes, we should stir our faith and the faith of others by the recounting of our Lord's miracles. But we must be expecting miracles "in the moment"...this moment. . .our defining moment.
Acts 5:12 in the New King James Version says:
“And through the hands of the apostles many signs and wonders were done among the people. . .”
I encourage you to write down the areas of your life where you need miracle manifestation.
It doesn’t matter how impossible your situation may seem . . . because as it says in Luke 1:37 in the Amplified Bible, Classic Edition:
“For with God nothing is ever impossible and no word from God shall be without power or impossible of fulfillment.”
As human as Mary was, she is not remembered for her humanity but because of her faith in a virgin birth.
Above it all, I believe she anticipated the reward of faithfully fulfilling the call of God upon her life.
We can learn much from Mary.
She believed what must have seemed absurd.
Today she is an example in proving that nothing is impossible with God.
We encourage you to Create a Personalized Confession. . .TODAY. . . on how to make the impossible….possible…using the Word of God.
“Heavenly Father, I’m so thankful for Your Word. I’m so thankful that whatever I ask in prayer from Your Word …and believe that I receive…it will be granted to me according to Mark 11:23-24.
“I rejoice that you are empowering me to overcome every attack of the enemy and that you infuse me with inner strength causing me to be self-sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency according to Philippians 4:13.
“Father, your Word says that if I believe on you and I do. . .that I shall do the greater works. I rejoice that all things are possible to those who believe and I believe according to John 14:12.
“Lord, I’m ready to shout because nothing is impossible to me and that no word from you is impossible of fulfillment according to Luke 1:37.
“I believe that when I wake up tomorrow, it is going to be the best day of my life.”
“And, I call all this done in the strong name of Jesus. Amen.”
2) Speaking words Of Faith Guarantees A "God" Result for this day.
Proverbs 25:11 in the Amplified Bible, Classic Edition says:
“A word fitly spoken and in due season is like apples of gold in settings of silver.”
Words are important. They are powerful. They have the ability to build up or tear down.
A word fitly spoken can change the course of a person’s life.
A Word from the Lord that is obeyed leads to blessing. . .when those same Words are ignored it can destine a person to a life of mediocrity.
Words can inflict pain or joy . . .misery or laughter. But the real question is: what’s behind those words.
Words start wars.
Words bring peace.
Words justify the believer.
Words condemn the unbelieving.
Our words have consequences . . . and we decide whether they are good or evil.
Proverbs 18:20 in the Amplified Bible says:
“A man's [moral] self shall be filled with the fruit of his mouth; and with the consequence of his words he must be satisfied [whether good or evil].”
Words will either bring life or they can bring death to you. . .
Proverbs 18:21 says:
“Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.”
Whether your words bring life or death is up to you.
Proverbs 18:21 in the Message Bible says:
“Words kill, words give life; they're either poison or fruit—you choose.”
Here’s the bottom line. . .it’s found in Proverbs 18:20 in the Contemporary English Version which says:
“Make your words good-- you will be glad you did.”
One last thought. . .don’t waste your words on strife or conflict. . .use them to promote God’s kingdom.
3) Each Day Contains The Potential For Good News.
Proverbs 25:25 in the Amplified Bible, Classic Edition says:
“Like cold water to a thirsty soul, so is good news from a far [home] country.”
How can we make a good day … a greater day.
By remembering this. Every breath you’ve taken, experience you’ve lived, thing you’ve accomplished has brought to this moment. If you are older, rejoice, you have a lot of experience upon which to make a decision.
If you are younger, rejoice, you have a lot more experiences that will allow you to grow up wise in God’s wisdom.
The events in your life are never an accident. They are carefully orchestrated by God who chose you before you were ever conceived in your mother’s womb so you could do great things in His Kingdom.
Every book you read you will read with greater understanding because now you know more than you’ve ever known.
You have a deeper revelatory insight than you had yesterday or the day before yesterday.
How can I be so sure that each new day carries the potential for good news?
Ephesians 3:20 in the Amplified Bible, Classic Edition says:
“Now to Him Who, by (in consequence of) the [action of His] power that is at work within us, is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly, far over and above all that we [dare] ask or think [infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams].”
The New Living Translation of Ephesians 3:20 reads this way personalized.
“Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within <<Your Name>>, to accomplish infinitely more than <<Your Name>> might ask or think.”
Now that ought to make you shout HALLELUJAH. THANK YOU JESUS.
4) Gloomy Tunes Guarantee An Overcast Day.
You will never reach your desired result in life by listening to the wrong people (which you probably know but are you still doing it?). It may surprise you to learn that listening to the wrong music can adversely affect your destiny as well.
Proverbs 25:20 in the Amplified Bible, Classic Edition says:
“He who sings songs to a heavy heart is like him who lays off a garment in cold weather and like vinegar upon soda.”
We love music.
Music is an incredibly powerful force. Few things move people like music.
But think about the songs you sing and the songs you hear.
For instance, I grew up with the music of Ray Charles. I like Ray Charles but there are some songs I won’t listen to. One of them is called: “Born to Lose.” That song is scripturally inaccurate and could become a self-fulfilling prophecy for you.
As children of God, we have been designed and destined to win.
So there are certain songs we don’t need to listen to … like Garth Brooks song “I’ve got friends in low places.”
How about the crying songs? It’s my party and I’ll cry if I want to. Blue eyes crying in the rain.
Listen to music that will inspire you. Our morning playlist alone includes:
Talking With Jesus by Brandon Lake
Graves Into Gardens by Elevation Music
Just Can’t Stop Praising His Name by Ron Kenoly
Healing Oil by Kim Walker Smith
O Happy Day by the Edwin Hawkins Singers
This Joy That I Have by Shirley Caesar
The Days of Elijah by Judy Jacobs
Break Every Chain by Jesus Culture
Ephesians 5:19 in the Amplified Bible, Classic Edition says:
“Speak out to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, offering praise with voices [and instruments] and making melody with all your heart to the Lord,”
Faith-filled music will help you overcome seemingly impossible odds and intense adversity.
5) What You Look Upon The Longest Becomes The Strongest.
Job 31:1 in the New Living Translation is a rather direct scripture. It says:
“I made a covenant with my eyes not to look with lust at a young woman.”
Galatians 5:16 in the King James Version says:
“This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.”
I first heard this Galatians verse taught as a “quit quit” and “don’t don’t” verse. In other words, live a godly life by not going to movies, not watching television, not dancing, not smoking, not drinking, not even looking at girls or anything that doesn’t happen within the four walls of the church.
The verse says: “…you shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.”
The word fulfill is the Greek word teleo (G5055) and it means:
“to bring to a close, to finish, to end, to pay.”
In the Strong’s Concordance the Greek word (G1939) for lust means:
“desire, craving, longing, desire for what is forbidden, lust.”
The Greek word for lust is mentioned 38 times in 37 verses according to the Hebrew Concordance of the King James Bible.
As I began to read those verses. . .I felt stirred to discuss the first one on the list which is Mark 4:19 in the Amplified Bible, Classic Edition:
“Then the cares and anxieties of the world and distractions of the age, and the pleasure and delight and false glamour and deceitfulness of riches, and the craving and passionate desire for other things creep in and choke and suffocate the Word, and it becomes fruitless.”
Our focus determines our future.
What we focus on the longest. . .today. . .will become the strongest. . .in our daily thought life.
If I continually think on the things of the flesh I will be dominated by the flesh.
If I make conscious decisions throughout the day to focus on the Holy Spirit and spiritual things I will be led by The Holy Spirit.
Colossians 3:2 in the Amplified Bible, Classic Edition says:
“And set your minds and keep them set on what is above (the higher things), not on the things that are on the earth.”
6) Self-justification Will Never Impress God.
This key is true. . .every day.
Job 31:40 in the New King James Version says:
“Then let thistles grow instead of wheat, and weeds instead of barley.” The words of Job are ended.”
Job was an admirable man.
Job was also a very human man. That should give all of us a lot of hope since God spoke very highly of Job and loved him in spite of his justifications about why he was righteous.
He spent a lot of time comparing himself to others.
The more he looked at others, the better Job felt about himself.
Hebrews 12:12-13 in the Message Bible really stirred my spirit when I read it. The verses say:
“So don't sit around on your hands! No more dragging your feet! Clear the path for long-distance runners so no one will trip and fall, so no one will step in a hole and sprain an ankle. Help each other out. And run for it!”
What would make people sit on their hands and drag their feet. . .it happens when we make excuses trying to justify what we’ve done or didn’t do.
The American Heritage Dictionary says that an excuse is “the act of justification.”
Before we make any excuses, we need to check out what Proverbs 24:11 in the Message Bible says:
“Rescue the perishing; don't hesitate to step in and help. If you say, "Hey, that's none of my business," will that get you off the hook? Someone is watching you closely, you know— Someone not impressed with weak excuses.”
What’s a weak excuse? Anything that suggests the power of God cannot quicken your faith so you can overcome every obstacle.
Here’s an absolute fact.
Successful people make plans. . .unsuccessful people make excuses justifying why they haven’t completed their assignment.
2 Thessalonians 3:10 in the Message Bible says:
“Don't you remember the rule we had when we lived with you? "If you don't work, you don't eat." And now we're getting reports that a bunch of lazy good-for-nothings are taking advantage of you. This must not be tolerated. We command them to get to work immediately—no excuses, no arguments—and earn their own keep. Friends, don't slack off in doing your duty.”
If we spend our lives looking for excuses. . .justifying our inaction. . .we’ll never find the time to find the answer to our problems.
People with excuses will never be remembered for what they did . . . or even what they could have done.
7) Faith Will Always Get The Attention Of God. . .every day.
Luke 1:45 in the Amplified Bible, Classic Edition says:
“And blessed (happy, to be envied) is she who believed that there would be a fulfillment of the things that were spoken to her from the Lord.”
Human emotion will never depart from our lives.
I will always experience emotions and so will you.
Emotions will come representing themselves as faith.
God's heart may be moved by my tears. But God's hand is moved by my faith.
My answer is in His heart. My results come through the movement of His hand.
There is one more thing we want to share with you.
God hears when you speak to your faith. . .which will make it grow.
2 Corinthians 4:13 in the Good News Translation says:
“The scripture says, “I spoke because I believed.” In the same spirit of faith we also speak because we believe.”
There are also times. . .when you will speak about things of faith before they ever manifest in the natural realm.
Romans 4:17 in the Amplified Bible says:
“(As it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations,) before him whom he believed, even God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were.”
The boldness of your faith will open doors of opportunity for you.
So you see … when we look at the Word of God with the proper motivation and understanding … our tomorrows will be filled with possibilities from the Word of God.BLOG COMMENTS POWERED BY DISQUS
