Who doesn't want to feel secure? To know everything is going to be okay. You have all you need.
Sister, that security you long for...it is totally yours.
As a believer, the essence, the core of who you are is ALWAYS safe. You are always provided for in abundance.
What in your mind do you value most? What consumes your energy and your time? Where is your hope?
What you feed in your heart is what grows within you. Where your treasure is, there is your heart.
What thoughts and feelings are you feeding? Is appeasing your flesh your priority or do you fuel the spirit residing inside of you?
When our treasure and heart is on things above, we experience the full joy of our salvation and what Christ has done for us. We position our self to receive.
In this place, moths cannot destroy. Thieves cannot steal. Waters cannot drown. Pests cannot devour. Fire cannot consume. Man cannot harm.
Nothing and no one can rob you of your inheritance. You are the daughter of a king. That is your identity. Its who you are.
You are loved. You are chosen. God has plans for you. He sees you. He longs to prosper you and not to harm you.
When we know this is true, we can relax. We can live in peace and joy. We can love from a place of abundance.
Stay close to your Good Father. Focus on Him. Ask him for wisdom and He will show you what to do.
Man and circumstances may be unreliable, wavering and disappointing, but you have a constant, steady and reliable foundation.
Sometimes we just lose sight of that.
When He did, his WORDS created the world (Genesis 1).
Nothing exists that He did not speak into existence.
God created us in his image. We get to rule over the world, the plants and animals. We too get to create (Hebrews 2:5-9)
What are you creating in your life by the words you speak? What are the words you think?
Our words have power.
The Spirit of God dwells in us beginning with His Word. His spirit gives us eyes and ears to understand Scripture.
Through the Word and His Spirit, our bodies are quickened and our spirits our encouraged. His Word written and spoken is living and active and sharper than a double edge sword. The Word of God is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart (Hebrews 4:12).
Not only did it call life into existence, it continues to bear life and truth in us.
Wives, if you are not feasting on His Word you are depriving your spirit of power and peace.
What words of truth will you speak to breath life into you marriage?
Pick up your Bible. Read it everyday.
If you want some consolidated truths, a great resource by Joyce Meyer is a little purple book called The Secret Power of Speaking God's Word. It takes Scripture as affirmations you can speak into all areas of your life. You can look under topics (marriage, depression, fear, worry, finances) and there are Scriptures lined up ready for you.
I encourage you to create peace in your mind and life by speaking God's Word. Put on those Words, like garments each morning.
Words have power, starting with the strings of sentences in your mind. Choose them wisely as they create your feelings which fuel your actions which ultimately create your results. How you are experiencing life now, always goes back to words.
Where we are in life proves what we are thinking. When we change our perspective, we can change our lives and our relationships.
