1 Corinthians 15:57

But thanks be to God who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ

Do you know you are a Champion!?!

Yes you heard me you are a Champion. You’re not a Champion because I say so or because you say so. No, you are a Champion because God says so! If God gives us the victory then we are Champions!

My challenge to you today is not to walk around like a defeated, weak, nominal Christian. My challenge for you today is to understand God has made you a Champion and that is what you are!

Be blessed and be victorious!

Training: Be the best You

John 3:27

To this John replied, “A man can only receive what is given him from heaven”

We always get in trouble when we try to take things that aren’t ours.

Of course in the retail sense, this is called stealing or robbery. However sometimes we commit a different type of “robbery.” Any time we try to act or be like somebody else we are in a sense trying to “rob” their identity.

Friend God doesn’t want you to be like somebody else. He wants YOU to be the best YOU you can be. So if you are comparing yourself to someone else, cut it out. We should keep our eyes on Christ.

Be blessed!

Psalm 95:6

Let us kneel before the Lord our Maker

There is power when we surrender our lives to God.

There is a universal sign that all languages and people groups understand: Placing your hands up is the sign for surrender.

Friend when we surrender our lives to God that is the break through point where we can see him work in our lives to bring healing, blessing, and prosperity. If you are struggling in an area of your life today perhaps there is something you need to surrender to God?

Jeremiah 29:11

For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future.

Life basically comes down to two choices: 1) Our Will 2) God’s will

Here are 4 benefits of doing God’s will in our lives.

1) When we do things God’s way we have no regrets.

2) When we do things God’s way we do them right.

3) When we make Godly decisions we can enjoy the decisions tomorrow.

4) When we do things God’s way we are assured that He will bless what we are doing.

Do God’s will in your life today.

Ephesians 3:20

Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we can ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us

Do you have a God-sized dream for your life?

Believing God to loose 3 lbs, get a $1 dollar raise, or just to survive in life is not a God-sized dream. God-sized dreams are dreams that are bigger than you. Just think of it; this could be the year you get that degree, start that business, get totally in shape, or you name it.

Friend don’t let the devil trick you into settling for a small dream. Ask God for a God-sized dream and then don’t let go of it.

Be blessed!

2 Timothy 3:16

For all scripture is God breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting, and training in righteousness

God’s Word is relevant, and it never changes. God’s Word doesn’t talk about the truth; it is the truth. God’s Word doesn’t just understand our problems; His Word contains the solutions to our problems.

Friend if you are facing a battle today find out what God’s Word says about that situation, and then stand on that promise, no matter what! If you do you will be an overcommer in life!

Psalm 78:13

He divided the sea and led them through; he made the water stand firm like a wall

God can make a way for you!

Yes, God can get you through that financial issue. Yes, God can get you through that relationship issue. Yes, God can heal that hurt and pain in your heart.

Friend there is no limit to what God can do. Don’t settle, don’t waiver, don’t throw in the towel.

Be blessed

Proverbs 3:5-6

Trust in the the Lord with all your heart and lean no on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him and he will direct your paths

Our Part: We are to trust God with everything we hold dear and important. We are to realize we can not solve every problem we have with our own wisdom and skill.

His Part: God promises that IF we will trust him and place our lives in his hands that he will direct, guide, and protect us.

Do your part because God will do his.

Be blessed

Training: Abundance

Psalms 66:12

You brought us to a place of abundance

Friend God wants you to live in abundance.

God doesn’t just want you to scrape by in life. He doesn’t want your marriage, career, vision, dreams, or life in general just to be OK. You can live 2013 in abundance but only when you do things God’s way.

If I was to ever write a book on how to mess up my life, the central theme would be, do things MY way. Friend 2013 can be a year of abundance for you.

Read it, Speak it, Believe it: “You brought us to a place of abundance.”

Be blessed

ManDurance-Training

Titus 3:14

Our people must learn to devote themselves to doing what is good and not to live unproductive lives

If you want to mess your life up here is how to do it:

1) Make decisions that benefit you now instead of in the future
2) Become close friends with negative people
3) Doubt God’s plans to bless your life

Friend God wants us to live productive lives. Avoid the above at all costs!

Be blessed
