  • Abundant Rain

    Today's Scripture
    You gave abundant showers, O God; you refreshed your weary inheritance. (Psalm 68:9, NIV)

    It’s easy to lose our passion for life. At one time we loved to laugh, looked forward to the day, were believing for our dreams, but when things didn’t work out as we thought, we came into a dry place and life lost its flavor. You smile, but there’s no joy behind it.

    Sometimes we’re dry because we’re tired, the challenges have taken longer than we thought, and it seems we’ll never overcome them. We can be dry because somebody did us wrong, and instead of letting it go, we’ve become bitter.

    You may feel the blahs, but this is when you have to take control of your thought life. That’s where the battle is taking place. God sees what you’re going through, and He’s about to give you an abundance of strength, joy, health, and resources. You’re coming out of that dry place into more than enough.

    Get your hopes up. Start expecting the abundant rain. That’s the way our God is.

    A Prayer for Today
    “Father, thank You that You are not limited by the dry places in which I sometimes find myself. Thank You that You see what I’m going through, and You’re sending the rain with overflow and abundance. I believe the victories in my past are going to pale in comparison to the victories in my future. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
  • Increase in Favor

    Today's Scripture
    And Jesus increased in wisdom and in stature and in favor with God and man. (Luke 2:52, ESV)

    Did you know that one way our faith is released is through our words? There is a connection between speaking God's favor and receiving His favor. You can increase in favor. It's not enough to just believe you have favor or expect favor; you have to take it one step further and declare favor.

    Every day you should declare, I have the favor of God. I have favor on my business, my finances, my family, and my health. When you speak something out, you're giving it the right to come to pass. When you're in a difficult situation, instead of complaining about it, you need to declare, the favor of God is turning this around.

    His favor is bringing healing, freedom, vindication, and victory into my life. It's one thing to think it, but when you declare it, things begin to happen in the unseen realm. You've hoped, you've prayed, you've believed that's good but it's time to start speaking favor.

    A Prayer for Today
    Father, thank You for the gift of Your favor that I can freely receive and increase in. Thank You that Your favor is endorsing me, bringing me to prominence, and taking me to new levels. I believe and declare that Your favor is bringing me whatever I need at this very moment. In Jesus Name, Amen.
  • Grow Through It

    Today's Scripture
    I make known the end from the beginning, from ancient times, what is still to come. I say, 'My purpose will stand, and I will do all that I please.' (Isaiah 46:10, NIV)

    Sometimes we look at the painful times in our lives when we're hurting, we're lonely, we're undergoing medical treatment and think they can't be a part of God s plan.

    You have to trust that even then, God doesn't make any mistakes. He's already designed your life down to the smallest detail. God didn't promise that there wouldn't be any pain, suffering, or disappointment. But, He did promise that it would all work out for our good.

    The key is what you do in your times of pain. Difficulties, heartache, suffering they don't leave us the same. If you go through a divorce or a legal battle, or if you have a friend who betrays you, eventually you will get through it, but you will be different.

    You can come out bitter, or you can come out better. You can come out with a chip on your shoulder, or you can come out with a greater trust in God. My challenge is, don't just go through it; grow through it.

    A Prayer for Today
    “Father, thank You that there is a purpose for whatever pain comes my way, and You only allow what You know will work for my good. Thank You that though I may not understand it now, You will use it to shape my life for the better. I believe I will grow through it. In Jesus Name, Amen.”
  • Eagles or Crows?

    Today's Scripture
    Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you. (Philippians 4:9, NIV)

    God has put favor connections in your life people who have what you want, who are further along. Are you overlooking them? Or are you intimidated by their success so you hold back?

    God put them there so you could connect. If you will honor them and learn from them, then because you're connected to someone with more favor, more influence, and more vision, that favor will flow down to you. You will see new doors open, influence in greater ways, and promotion that you couldn't have reached on your own. It will come because of a favor connection.

    You cannot hang around with chickens and reach your destiny. You can't spend all your free time with crows, people who complain, or with turkeys, people who have accepted mediocrity. You need people who are soaring like eagles, people who are taking new ground, people who are out of debt, people who think bigger than you, and people who are exposing you to levels that you've never seen.

    A Prayer for Today
    Father, thank You that You have already lined up these favor connections for me. Thank You for the people You've set in place to help me go further. Help me to disconnect from people who are hindering my growth and to connect with people who are favored. In Jesus Name, Amen.
  • Remember Your Dream

    Today's Scripture
    May he grant your heart's desires and make all your plans succeed.(Psalm 20:4, NLT)

    We all have dreams we're believing for, but we may have hit some setbacks. Our dreams can get buried under discouragement, past mistakes, rejection, failure, and negative voices. It's easy to settle for mediocrity even when we have all this potential buried inside.

    Your dream may be buried, but it's still alive. It's not too late to see it come to pass. The key to reaching your destiny is to remember your dream. What has God put in your heart? What did you used to be excited about? Why do you think it's too late, it's too big, or it's not possible? Get your passion back. You haven't missed your opportunity or had too many bad breaks. Stir up your faith. God is going to resurrect what you thought was dead.

    You may have tried and failed, but dreams that you've given up on are going to suddenly come back to life. God has the final say. He hasn't changed His mind.

    A Prayer for Today
    “Father, thank You for the dreams and desires You put in my heart. Thank You that I can stir up my faith and know that You can resurrect what I may have thought was dead. I declare that it is never too late to see my dreams come to pass because You have the final say. In Jesus Name, Amen.”
  • It's All in the Plan

    Today's Scripture
    In him we were also chosen, having been predestined according to the plan of him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of his will. (Ephesians 1:11, NIV)

    It's easy to go through life wondering how things are going to work out, hoping we make the right decisions, and being stressed over our finances. You don't have to worry about your future. Your life is divinely orchestrated. God has already laid out the plan.

    The apostle Paul says God is working all things according to His will. It's not according to who likes you, how much talent you have, what family you come from, or even how many mistakes you make. It's according to His will. He is behind the scenes not only directing your steps, but directing the steps of the people you need. He's not just in control of your life, He's in control of your circumstances.

    Nothing happens randomly. You are not at the mercy of setbacks. You don't have to get upset because a door closed. God wouldn't allow it if it wasn't on your blueprint. It's not going to keep you from your purpose; it's leading you to your purpose.

    A Prayer for Today
    Father, thank You for Your promise that You will work out Your plans for my life. Thank You that I can stay in peace knowing that You are working behind the scenes and directing the outcomes. Help me to be patient and know that You are bringing me into my purpose. In Jesus Name, Amen.
  • Single Day Turnaround

    Today's Scripture
    And Pharaoh declared to Joseph, I, the king of Egypt, swear that you shall have complete charge over all the land of Egypt. (Genesis 41:44, TLB)

    After thirteen years of being imprisoned in Egypt for a crime he didn't do, there was nothing in Joseph's circumstances that looked as if he would ever accomplish his dream of ruling a nation. But one day Joseph was called before Pharaoh to interpret Pharaoh's dream, and Pharaoh was so impressed that he made Joseph the prime minister of Egypt.

    On the previous day, if you had told Joseph this would happen, he would have said, Are you kidding? Don t you see these bars? You may be in an unfair situation that seems as though it's never going to turn around. You don't need everyone to be for you; you just need the right people to be for you.

    God has already lined up people in positions of influence who will open doors you couldn't open and bring you opportunities and promotion that you didn't see coming. As was true for Joseph, you don't have to find them, they will find you. It is the hand of God in your life.

    A Prayer for Today
    “Father, thank You that what so often looks like trouble or a setback is really Your hand moving me toward Your purpose. Thank You that what's unfair is going to push open doors and bring opportunities I could never experience without it. Help me to be patient while You work things out. In Jesus Name, Amen.”

  • Keep It on the Outside

    Today's Scripture
    If you are angry, don't sin by nursing your grudge. Don't let the sun go down with you still angry get over it quickly. (Ephesians 4:26, TLB)

    It's okay to feel anger, to feel hurt, to feel disappointment, but it's not okay to let those feelings stay. You can't take them in so close to your heart that that's all you think about, and you wake up the next morning upset, wanting to pay somebody back, not excited about your future.

    If you keep thinking about it, reliving the hurt, and dwelling on what they said, you're allowing it into your heart. You have to guard your heart from that. Keep it on the surface, on the outside don't bring it into the secret place of your heart. When you face opposition, trouble, and bad breaks, that's when it's easiest to let anger and bitterness in.

    In those times when you don't understand it, come back to the place of peace, the place of trust. Don't let what's outside get inside. Your heart needs to stay positive, hopeful, peaceful, and at rest. Keep God on the throne.

    A Prayer for Today
    Father, thank You that there is a secret place in my heart where You dwell and where I can abide in peace. Help me guard against all the negative things that try to get in. I can't stop the circumstances around me, but I will stop the anger and bitterness from getting in me. In Jesus Name, Amen.
  • Take the High Road

    Today's Scripture
    And Laban said to him, Please stay, if I have found favor in your eyes, for I have learned by experience that the LORD has blessed me for your sake. Then he said, Name me your wages, and I will give it. (Genesis 30:27 28, NKJV)

    For many years Jacob worked for his father-in-law, Laban, who lied to him, cheated him, and treated him unfairly. Jacob could have walked away in anger, but he took the high road and kept being his best, and Laban's livestock increased abundantly because of the favor on Jacob's life. But when Jacob finally decided to leave, Laban begged him to stay, offering him whatever wages he wanted.

    You may have people who haven't kept their word to you. They don't value who you are. Don't be offended. Be a Jacob and keep doing the right thing. They may discount you now, but there will come a time when they recognize they are blessed because of you, and they'll do anything to keep you. When Jacob left, he was not only a very wealthy man, but he left with the respect and the honor that he wasn't given for many years.

    God is your vindicator. If you stay on the high road, He'll make it up to you.

    A Prayer for Today
    “Father, thank You that You see everything that has happened to me. Thank You that I can let go of every unfair thing and forgive quickly before bitterness can come in. I declare that You are my vindicator, and You will make my wrongs right. In Jesus Name, Amen.”
  • Say No

    Today's Scripture
    For the one who sows to his flesh, will reap from the flesh ruin and destruction, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life.
    (Galatians 6:8, AMP)

    When we sow to the Spirit, when we do the right thing when it's hard, we're going to reap blessings, favor, increase, abundant and eternal life. But if we keep giving into our fleshly, carnal desires, doing whatever we feel - I feel lazy, so I'm taking a sick day. I feel like compromising, so I'm giving into this temptation. I feel like staying up all night and being on the internet, so I'll skip classes tomorrow you'll only reap ruin and destruction.

    But when you discipline yourself to take the high road, when you tell your flesh no, you're sowing to the Spirit. It may not happen overnight, but if you keep making those choices, a great harvest is coming. The next time your feelings tell you to get upset, to be offended, or to compromise, just say, No, you're not my boss. You don't control my life. I'm going to do what s right and become all I was created to be.

    A Prayer for Today
    “Father, thank You that I can choose to be disciplined and say no to the flesh and its desires. Thank You that every day I can take my feelings off the throne and allow Your Spirit to control my life. Help me to sow to the Spirit and do what's right. In Jesus Name, Amen.”

  • What's in Your Future?

    Today's Scripture
    How abundant are the good things that you have stored up for those who fear you, that you bestow in the sight of all, on those who take refuge in you. (Psalm 31:19, NIV)

    Sometimes we act as though God has a limited supply of favor, but He has unlimited resources. When God laid out the plan for your life, He put in it everything you need to fulfill your destiny. He's already lined up the right people, the right breaks, favor, and increase. If you keep honoring God, you'll come into a stored-up blessing at the right time. You won't have to go after it; it will find you.

    What God has destined for you can't go to anyone else. When you understand this, it takes the pressure off. You don't live frustrated, wondering when a dream is going to come to pass, worried that a problem is not going to work out, or jealous because a friend got a promotion. You stay in peace knowing that what has your name on it isn't going to go to anyone else. You know your time is coming. You know that God will get you to where you're supposed to be.

    A Prayer for Today
    “Father, thank You for the abundance of good things You have stored up for me. Thank You that when I keep You first place and honor You, blessings will chase me down and overtake me. I believe my times are in Your hands, and You have some surprises in my future. In Jesus Name, Amen.”
  • The Reward of Integrity

    Today's Scripture
    A good name is more desirable than great riches; to be esteemed is better than silver or gold. (Proverbs 22:1, NIV)

    Your reputation is one of the most valuable things you have. You can have great riches and yet be despised, looked down on, and seen as shady. But when you're a person of integrity, other people say, I can trust them. They always do the right thing. They're honest, fair, and consistent. They don't talk one way and live another way.

    Your name is too important to let it become tarnished by not having integrity. A life of integrity will take you much further than being dishonest and manipulating. You can't fudge on your taxes or turn in an exaggerated expense account and expect God's favor. You may gain some material things, but you lose with God. He controls the universe. There's a lot we can get away with, hide, manipulate, and exaggerate. People may not see it, but God does. Anything you gain without integrity won't be what it should have been. Be honest. Be trustworthy. Be a person of your word.

    A Prayer for Today
    “Father, thank You that You are not limited to seeing me as other people see me. Thank You that You see my heart, and You know my faithfulness to You. Help me to live a life of integrity. I want my life to stand out as one who brings You praise. In Jesus Name, Amen.”
  • Release Your Faith

    Today's Scripture
    When he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to shout, Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me! (Mark 10:47, NIV)

    When a blind beggar named Bartimaeus heard that Jesus was passing by, he started to shout, Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me! Technically, Jesus was the son of Joseph and Mary. Bartimaeus called him the Son of David, which was the Old Testament messianic title, because he recognized Jesus as the Messiah. When he cried out to Jesus, he was saying, You are my Messiah, my deliverer, my healer, the Most High God. Have mercy on me! Jesus stopped in His tracks.

    I can imagine Him thinking, Here's someone who knows who I am, someone who believes I have all power, someone who's expecting My goodness. His faith is real. When Jesus healed Bartimaeus, He said what He's also saying to us, Your faith has made you whole. Your faith is going to turn things around, open the right doors, and bring unexpected favor. Keep expecting it. God is passing by. Release your faith. It's going to happen sooner than you think.

    A Prayer for Today
    “Father, thank You that just as You restored the sight of Bartimaeus, You can do the impossible in my life. Thank You that I can bring You the desires of my heart. Help me be bold to ask You for the big things only You can make happen and to release my faith. In Jesus Name, Amen.”
  • Stop the Leak

    Today's Scripture
    The start of a quarrel is like a leak in a dam, so stop it before it bursts. (Proverbs 17:14, MSG)

    One of the biggest challenges we all face is getting along with other people. We have different personalities, different temperaments, and come from different backgrounds. When somebody doesn't agree with us, or they're doing what we don't like, it's easy to quarrel with them, try to straighten them out, and prove our point. Before long we're at odds, mad at each other, and offended. You can feel the tension and stress. What's happened? We've allowed strife in.

    When we let our guard down and say things that are disrespectful, hurtful, and demeaning, we damage our relationship and open the door to strife. That's why the Scripture says, Give no place to the enemy. Strife can't just come in whenever it wants; you have to open the door. To never have an argument or say a wrong word is not reality, but when we allow strife to become common we're constantly arguing, saying hurtful things, being disrespectful, we're headed down the wrong path. Stop strife before it bursts and tears relationships apart.

    A Prayer for Today
    “Father, thank You for the promise of blessedness when I take the high road and am a peacemaker in relationships. Give me wisdom to know when to keep my mouth closed and overlook something that bothers me. I recognize the destructive power of strife and give no place for it. In Jesus Name, Amen.”
  • Remember Your History

    Today's Scripture
    He replied, The LORD, before whom I have walked faithfully, will send his angel with you and make your journey a success. (Genesis 24:40, NIV)

    When Abraham was old and close to death, he told his assistant to travel back to his hometown to find his son, Isaac, a wife. The assistant asked him how he would know if it was the right girl, and Abraham was saying, "Don't worry because I have a history with God. I've seen His faithfulness over and over down through the years. I am confident it will happen. I have walked with God and seen His goodness."

    Instead of wondering if something's going to work out, worrying about your health, or stressing out over your finances, remember your history with God. Look back at what He's done. As Abraham did, you'll see times when God brought a promise to pass that looked impossible, He provided when you didn't see a way, He showed you mercy and turned a situation around. Whatever you face, keep walking in faithfulness and be confident that He will do it again and make your journey a success.

    A Prayer for Today
    “Father, thank You that Your hand has been upon my life in so many ways. Thank You for the countless things You have made happen for my good that I could never make happen. I believe You are protecting me and will make my journey a success. In Jesus Name, Amen.”
  • Where Is Your Focus?

    Today's Scripture
    For we are powerless against this great horde that is coming against us. We do not know what to do, but our eyes are on you. (2 Chronicles 20:12, ESV)

    King Jehoshaphat and the people of Judah were surrounded by three major armies. They could have panicked, but instead Jehoshaphat called people together to pray. He didn't deny the facts or act like the problem didn't exist. He admitted they were powerless, but he followed it up with, "But our eyes are on You, God. You are all-powerful."

    When you keep God on the throne, you'll be in peace when you could be panicked. You'll be praising when you could be complaining. God told Jehoshaphat to march toward the enemy, and he appointed singers of praise to walk ahead of the army. The Lord worked a mighty victory, and they didn't even have to fight.

    Your problems may look too big, and you may be powerless, but you have the "Most Powerful Force" in the universe on your side. Keep God on the throne. You may not know what to do, but when your eyes are upon Him, He'll make a way where you don't see a way.

    A Prayer for Today
    “Father, thank You that You are in control of all the situations in my life, and You are fighting my battles. I choose to guard my mind from worrisome, anxious thoughts that trap me in negativity and discouragement. The throne of my life is reserved for You. In Jesus Name, Amen.”
  • Don't Go by Your Circumstances

    Today's Scripture
    Abraham fell facedown; he laughed and said to himself, Will a son be born to a man a hundred years old? Will Sarah bear a child at the age of ninety? (Genesis 17:17, NIV)

    Sarah was over ninety years old when she gave birth to Isaac. This is way too old in the natural, but we serve a supernatural God. He can make a way where you don't see a way. Don't talk yourself out of your dreams. Don't give up on what God promised you. You can still give birth. You can still meet the right person, still start your own business, still go to college, and still break the addiction. That seed is alive in you.

    Here's the key: You can't judge what's in you by what's around you. All of Sarah's circumstances said, You'll be barren your whole life. You're too old. No woman your age has babies. It's impossible. If she had believed that lie and let that seed take root, the miracle birth would never have happened. You can draw in the negative with your doubt or you can draw in God's blessings with your faith. Don't let what you see around you cause you to give up on your dreams.

    A Prayer for Today
    “Father, thank You that I am not limited by my circumstances. Thank You that what surrounds me does not determine the seeds of greatness You have placed within me. I believe that the supernatural plans You have for me are going to take me where I could never go on my own. In Jesus Name, Amen.”
  • Rise Again

    Today's Scripture
    Though the righteous fall seven times, they rise again. (Proverbs 24:16, NIV)

    Very few people can look in the mirror and say, I am good. We think, Not me. I fall short. I struggle in areas.

    But when you say, I am good, it's not because of who you are; it's because of whose you are. You are a child of the Most High God. He handpicked you, breathed life into you, and crowned you with favor.

    Don't go around intimidated, insecure, feeling as though you don't measure up. Your performance doesn't determine who you are; your heavenly Father determines who you are.

    When you fall down and make mistakes, thoughts will whisper, Look at you! You're a hypocrite. Don't live with that heaviness. Just answer back, I may have fallen, but I got back up again. Hold your head up and feel good about who you are. You may not be where you want to be, but you're growing, improving, and coming up higher. Celebrate where you are. Thank God for where He's brought you so far.

    A Prayer for Today
    “Father, thank You that You are the Most High God, and because I am Your child, I have royalty in my blood. Help me when I fall to never stay down in discouragement and condemnation. I declare that I am righteous because of who You are. In Jesus Name, Amen.”
  • Will You Wait for Them?

    Today's Scripture
    "And while he was still a long way off, his father saw him coming. Filled with love and compassion, he ran to his son, embraced him, and kissed him." (Luke 15:20, NLT)

    The prodigal son took his father's inheritance and wasted it all on wild living and partying. Yet when he finally came home, notice that his father was waiting for him. Despite what his son had done, I can imagine the father walking to the end of the driveway several times a day and looking for him. And seeing his son, the father ran out and hugged and kissed his son. Then he told his staff to throw a party and celebrate his son's return. Never once did the father bring up the son's faults. He didn't condemn him as undeserving. He was full of compassion, love, and restoring mercy.

    Sometimes we think we have to tell people everything they're doing wrong and change their mind, but the Holy Spirit is the one who convicts. Our job is to keep loving them when they don't deserve it, when they don't listen, and when they're making bad decisions. Keep praying and encouraging them. They're in the process of changing. Today may be their turning point.

    A Prayer for Today
    “Father, thank You for waiting for me with a heart of compassion, love, and restoring mercy. Thank You that You have called me to have that same heart and attitude for all the people in my life. Help me to wait for them, to love and encourage them, and to be there for them. In Jesus Name, Amen.”
  • God Bless Mothers

    Today’s Scripture
    “So give your father and mother joy! May she who gave you birth be happy.” (Proverbs 23:25, NLT)

    Today we celebrate Mother’s Day. We honor their love, life and investment into families. Proverbs 31 talks about the woman who honors the Lord and tells us that she deserves honor. In verse 28 it says, “Her children arise and call her blessed.”

    Today, we rise up and bless the mothers, but we also rise up and bless all who honor the Lord! Psalm one says that when we take delight in His laws, when we put Him first place, we open the door to His blessing in our lives.

    A Prayer Today
    “Father, today I choose to bless and honor You as I bless and honor my own mother. Thank You for the gift of family and for showing us Your nurturing nature through the heart of a mother in Jesus’ name. Amen.”
  • Freedom

    Today's Scripture
    "So ought not this woman, being a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan has bound think of it for eighteen years, be loosed from this bond on the Sabbath?" (Luke 13:16, NKJV)

    This lady who came into the synagogue where Jesus was had been bent over for eighteen years. She had been bound by the enemy for so long that I'm sure she thought it was permanent.

    When Jesus called her a daughter of Abraham, it meant she was a part of the covenant that God made with Abraham. She wasn't just any woman. She had rights and privileges because she was in the family line of Abraham.

    As with her, you're not just anyone. You're a child of the Most High God. You have rights because of who you belong to. You weren't created to be bound by sickness, an addiction, or any limitation.

    Get ready because the chain breaker is about to step in. If Jesus were here today, He would look at you and say, You are loosed from what's holding you back. Your day of freedom has come. The chain is coming off. You're being released into healing, released into favor, released into new levels.

    A Prayer for Today
    “Father, thank You that You have come into my life as my Savior, as my provider, as my healer, and as my chain breaker. Thank You that my chains are gone, and I've been set free. I believe that every force that has been holding me back has been broken. In Jesus Name, Amen.”
  • Your Father's World

    Today's Scripture
    "So don't be afraid, little flock. For it gives your Father great happiness to give you the Kingdom. (Luke 12:32, NLT)

    We knew a very successful widowed man who remarried, and at the age of sixty-five found out they were going to have his first child. When his wife gave birth and he held his baby boy, he was overwhelmed and began to weep for joy. He looked his son in the eyes and said, I can't wait to give you my world.

    That's the way our heavenly Father feels about you. He's been thinking about you a long time. He didn't create you to be ordinary, to just make it through life. He's lined up amazing opportunities, good breaks, and the right people. He's saying to you, I can't wait to give you My world.

    His world is big, filled with joy, filled with favor, filled with blessings, and filled with love. In His world, you are His prized possession. What He has in store for you is going to boggle your mind. My question is, are you expecting your Father to give you the kingdom?

    A Prayer for Today
    “Father, thank You that it is Your great happiness to give me the kingdom. I declare that as Your child I am coming to You for all the favor, joy, peace, and opportunities You have lined up for me. Thank You that You are my Father and I live in Your world. In Jesus Name, Amen.”
  • You're Going Up

    Today's Scripture
    "But Noah found favor in the eyes of the LORD." (Genesis 6:8, NIV)

    The people in Noah's day were living wildly, partying, worshipping idols. God was so upset that He was about to destroy the earth through a great flood, but Noah found favor with God.

    Why did he find favor and not all the people around him? The next verse says, He walked faithfully with God. Noah could have just compromised like everyone else, but he made the choice to honor God and keep Him first place.

    There is a blessing on your life that will push you up when others are going down. God told Noah to build a 450-foot long ark. No one had heard of such a thing. It seemed impossible. But God will never ask you to do something and not give you the favor to do it. You have the favor.

    The question is, do you have the faith or are you talking yourself out of it? Remember that just one touch of God's favor will catapult you to a new level.

    A Prayer for Today
    “Father, thank You that You are the true and living God, and You reward those who honor You. Thank You that my obedience can never earn Your favor but it can lead to it. Help me to be bold, to dare to believe, and to dare to take some new steps of faith. In Jesus Name, Amen.”
  • Look Up and Listen

    Today's Scripture
    "Look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near." (Luke 21:28, NKJV)

    Hebrews 12:1 says that seeing we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us run the race that is set before us.

    Can I tell you, all of heaven is cheering for you? You are not running alone. Heaven's grandstands are packed with people who believe in you. Jesus says that when you're discouraged and tempted to give up, look up and by faith hear the cheers from the heavenly saints.

    Imagine every morning if you received a personal text from Abraham, Sarah, David, Moses, Ruth, or Noah. When you woke up each day, there was a message telling you how much they believe in you and how you are well able to make it. After all that these heroes of the faith went through, their words carry some weight.

    If you could hear them, they're saying, Stay encouraged. Victory is coming. Favor is coming. We made it, and you're going to make it. God did it for us; He's going to do it for you.

    A Prayer for Today
    “Father, thank You for the heroes of faith whose lives help show me how to live for You and who are cheering me on from heaven today. Thank You for their messages of perseverance and overcoming hardships. Help me to look up and listen and draw strength for my race. In Jesus Name, Amen.”
  • Better Is Coming

    Today's Scripture
    "Better is the end of a thing than the beginning of it." (Ecclesiastes 7:8, AMPC)

    You may have had a rough start, but you don't have to have a rough finish. Better is the end. Don't keep dwelling on the negatives of the past. God is saying, Something better is coming.

    You may be going through a rough spot today, but better is coming. Don't cancel out the better by dwelling on the regrets, the failures, and what didn't work out. If your mind is always on yesterday, you're going to move in that direction.

    Better is coming, healing is coming, and breakthroughs are coming. You're not defined by your past; you're prepared by your past. If the past hadn't happened, you wouldn't be prepared for the better that is coming your way. You may have made some mistakes, but you can't do anything about what happened yesterday.

    Living with guilt is not going to make anything better. It's time to drop it. You'll not only feel a weight lift off of you, but you'll step into the better things God has in store.

    A Prayer for Today
    “Father, thank You for my past, the successes and victories as well as the mistakes and failures. Thank You that the past has prepared me for today and for the better things You have in store for me. I believe breakthroughs are coming, new opportunities are coming, and healings are coming. In Jesus Name, Amen.”
  • Meek Isn't Weak

    Today's Scripture
    "Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth." (Matthew 5:5, NIV)

    Meek doesn't mean weak. Meekness is strength under control. When you ignore someone's negative comments, when you don't pay attention to other people's insults and criticisms, you're not being weak; you're being meek. You have the power to fight, you have the strength to straighten them out and let them know how you feel, but your strength is under control. You're not wasting your time and energy on things that are not between you and your destiny. If you stay on the high road, God will take care of your enemies. He can defend you better than you can defend yourself.

    My message is very simple: Quit letting other people get you upset and steal your joy. You can't control what people do; you can't control what they say, but you can control how you respond. Quit letting their negative comments upset you. You're not defined by what they say. Don't give it the time of day. If you maintain your meekness, God will fight your battles.

    A Prayer for Today
    “Father, thank You that I have the power to remain quiet because You have worked meekness into my life. Thank You that I can stay on the high road and let You take care of other people's comments and attitudes. I've made up my mind that I'm going keep my joy. In Jesus Name, Amen.”
  • Days of Acceleration

    Today's Scripture
    “Behold, the days are coming,” says the LORD, “when the plowman shall overtake the reaper, and the treader of grapes him who sows seed.” (Amos 9:13, NKJV)

    The prophet Amos was saying there’s coming a time when a man will be out plowing the field and sowing the seed, but the harvest is coming up so fast, the growth has so sped up that the harvest pops up as soon as he sows the seed. The plowman can’t keep up with it. Typically, in those days, the plowman would have to wait seven to eight months once he sowed the seed for the harvest. But Amos said the day is coming when it’s going to be simultaneous. As soon as you sow the seed, the harvest will begin to spring forth.

    I believe you and I are living in the day Amos talked about. You’re sowing the seed, doing the right thing. It should take months, even years, but as soon as you sow, the harvest is there. Blessings are overtaking you, favor that you didn’t deserve. It’s not the usual process. It’s not going to be what’s been in the past. God is in the acceleration business.

    A Prayer for Today
    “Father, thank You that You can make things happen faster than I could ever imagine. Thank You that You can accelerate my harvest, accelerate my deliverance, and accelerate my healing. I am believing that blessings are overtaking me even now. In Jesus Name, Amen.”
