THEME: PERSECUTED BUT NOT ABANDONED; STRUCK DOWN BUT NOT DESTROYED
WORDS OF HOPE:
God has destined us His children to rule over all the circumstances of life. Nothing is programmed to win over the new creature in Christ, and that is, you!
Life on earth is noted by many to be full of anxiety, pain, depression, harassment and torture. Our case as children of God, however, is different. Why is it different with us? Verse 7 of our anchor text reveals that there is TREASURE in us. This treasure is the Holy Spirit. He is God’s deposit guaranteeing God’s full purchase. Now, the Holy Spirit is resident in our spirit, housed in our bodies.
This treasure in the earthen vessels of our bodies ensures that:
i. We never get greatly anxious or in pain or sorrowful (distressed), when trouble shows up on every side.
ii. We never/do not lose hope (despair), when life serves us perplexity (tough, complicated, complex things we cannot /do not understand or have answers for).
iii. We cannot be/are not deserted, abandoned, dumped when we are harassed, oppressed, ill-treated, and persistently annoyed (persecuted) – especially because of our beliefs or what we stand for.
iv. We are not/cannot be wiped out of existence, die, annihilated when we are lowered in spirit, demoralized, looked down upon (cast down).
Be conscious of the Holy Spirit in your life. He is real and not a figment of anyone’s imagination. He is a real person and holds the key to all your victories in life. Engage Him and relate to Him as a person.
• Thank God for the presence of the Holy Spirit in your life.
• Pray and ask Him to guide you into your next level of success.
Blessed Holy Spirit, thank you for your rulership in my life. I yield myself to you fully and I dominate the circumstances of my life in Jesus’ name. Amen
