Jordan For Jesus #003 "God Wins" (Thursday Series) by Jordan Elizabeth on 2014-03-06 07:07:50
No matter what you may be facing in life.. God always wins. He alone is the eternal God. Every situation that we face in this life is temporary, and God has overcome it all. The war against sin was won on the cross. The spiritual war is won on our knees, and in the end Jesus will return to this earth to win the war against satan.
Anytime you think that no one can possibly understand your situation just remember all of Jesus' suffering on the cross. Know which battles to fight, which battles to let God fight, and which battles God has already won. Because we, as followers of Jesus Christ, are in Christ, and we are on the winning side.
Keep trusting God with an unshakable faith, because the outcome is God has already won. Guarding the words you speak is so important! Words have significance and are truly powerful. The power to speak life and death is in the tongue. Words kill or give life. Choose to speak life!
Be kind, honest and just. Speak God's truth in His love! Speak Jesus and let all of your words continuously point to Him in everything! Let Christ, who is life, be your voice!
"No weapon forged against you will prevail, and you will refute every tongue that accuses you. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and this is their vindication from Me," declares the LORD." Isaiah 54:17
"The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit." Proverbs 18:21
“I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” John 16:33
"The righteous person may have many troubles, but the LORD delivers him from them all." Psalm 34:19
"He says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.” Psalm 46:10
"The LORD will fight for you; you need only to be still." Exodus 14:14
"For the LORD your God is the one who goes with you to fight for you against your enemies to give you victory." Deuteronomy 20:4
While life is so uncertain, one thing is: God loves us so much, and He will never abandon us. No matter what happens in the coming days, months, or years, God is in control. And He will give us the strength to overcome any trial that comes our way.
Jordan For Jesus #039: Find the GOLD in People
Find the GOLD in people. If you only see fault, error, wrongs, sins, and what is bad, in people, then you have no time to love them. You cannot judge people and love people, at the same time, which is why the Word of God instructs us to look for what is good in people. When we look for the good, in people, we are choosing to see people through the eyes of God.
Slightly Obsessed #212: Believe
Sometimes it feels like just getting out of bed sets us up for defeat. But we shouldn’t be surprised. God clued us in thousands of years ago in the book of Job when He warned us that we are born for trouble as surely as sparks from a fire will fly up into the sky.
Slightly Obsessed #211: Can a Worm Fly?
Darkness is God’s secret place, where He fashions a new creation away from the prying eyes of His enemies. In the chrysalis of the closet, He plans and weaves and forms His beloved into something that will burst forth with joy at the proper season.
Slightly Obsessed #210: Arise
A few short moments taken to restore a woman to health had kept Jesus from the bedside of a girl who lay dying. Messengers arrived with the news that Jairus’ little daughter was dead, striking fear in his heart as they destroyed the hope to which he clung.
Slightly Obsessed #209: Look Up
An ancient king faced certain destruction as enemy warriors amassed before him in a surprise attack. His response is our answer for the trials that threaten to destroy us today.
