From the Father’s Heart for you today:
You are Beloved. Called by My name for good works that I prepared beforehand that you should walk in (Eph. 2:10). Follow Me (Matt. 16:24). I am continually calling.
Don’t rest in the victory of yesterday or yesteryear. Keep moving forward and following Me. I am not static. Don’t ever be content and settle down in complacency, patting yourself on the back or resting on your laurels.
Let’s keep going. Press on (Phil. 3:12). Run YOUR race unencumbered (Heb. 12:1). Don’t slack off just because you think you are out ahead.
Eyes on Me. Eyes on Me. Eyes on Me, the author and perfecter of your faith (Heb.12:2).
Have your armor on (Eph. 6:10-18) with prayer and fasting, not neglecting a single piece. Daily soak your shield of faith in the truth of My Word. Do not neglect it.
You want victory. Do not neglect all that I have given you for just that.
Do not allow the enemy to persuade you (Col. 2:4) of anything that does not line up with My Word. Don’t let him talk you into surrendering your armor or weapons of warfare (2 Cor. 10:4). Don’t agree with his discouragement. Use those divinely powerful weapons.
Your enemy is a great deceiver. He’s a liar and a sweet-talker. If he can’t get you to agree with the lies, he will deceive you into thinking that you are strong enough to just “relax a little today,” “take some shortcuts,” “don’t be so serious and so hard on yourself,” “live a little,” etc, etc.
Keep coming to Me for your battle plans and raise the standard for others to come to attention, to take notice and courage, and
“Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.” Romans 12:21
“Keep watching and praying that you may not enter into temptation; the spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.” Matt. 26:41
-Where have you become complacent or discouraged?
-What is one thing you are going to do about that TODAY?
-Are you agreeing with the enemy is some area? Ask the Lord to show you clearly and then seek out His truth to agree with. Write it down.
