Envy

Tuesday

“A heart at peace gives life to the body, but envy rots the bones.”

Proverbs 14:30 NIV

Is envy sabotaging your joy?

Envy is a sneaky thief and the lie at the heart of all comparison.

It whispers with an incessant voice:

“you are not enough”,
“you don’t have enough”,
“you could be enough if only….”

When you believe the whispers of envy, you are trading an abundant life for an abundant lie.

In Jesus, you are enough. He is not lacking in any area and He has made all God’s resources available to you. In Him, you are embraced, loved, cherished, equipped, empowered, and complete.

God’s plan for your life is not to be consumed by envy.

Confess it, take it to the cross, leave it there.

It is time to take hold of the fullness of who you are in Christ and leave the emptiness of envy at the cross today.

Don’t waste another second on it.

By the Grace of God

Wednesday.1

Good morning,

I wanted to remind you that you are saved by grace so that you can:

Love by grace,
Forgive by grace,
Grow by grace,
Give by grace,
Work by grace,
Eat by grace,
LIVE every moment of your life in the grace of God through Jesus.

“And if by grace, then it cannot be based on works; if it were, grace would no longer be grace.”

‭‭Romans‬ ‭11:6‬ ‭NIV‬

Let the grace of God be the fuel that drives your life today and every day.

Jesus died for it.

Hand of Blessing 

  

“You go before me and follow me. You place your hand of blessing on my head.”
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭139:5‬ ‭NLT‬‬

You may feel like you are on your own to deal with life. That you are on your own to deal with stress. On your own to make it happen, whatever “it” is, but you are not on your own, you are God’s beloved child. His love goes before you and his grace follows behind you. You are cherished and provided for, guided and anointed to walk confidently in God’s love. 

God goes before you to make a way where there seems to be no way, he sets up divine appointments for you to walk in and he brings people across your path that need you. He blesses you with what you need to do what he has called you to do. 

His hand of blessing is on your head.

That means in ALL that you do, big or small, his hand of blessing is on it- because his hand of blessing is on you. 

My prayer for you is that you will begin to see yourself in the light of God’s passionate love for you:

He has chosen you.
Rescued you.
Provided for you.
Forgiven you.
Equipped you.
Goes before you. 
Follows up after you. 

God’s love is not like man’s love. He is not controlling you, He is surrounding you with Himself and there is more freedom in his presence than anywhere else in the world. 

“‘For in him we live and move and have our being.’”
‭‭Acts‬ ‭17:28‬ ‭NIV‬‬

In Jesus, you have permission to live fully in God’s grace and walk confidently with His hand of blessing on you. 

You are blessed, now live it!
