Living A Good Life

Are you enjoying a good life, or have you allowed your mind to be filled with gloom and doom? Tha life of God is available to you because He sent Jesus so you can enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows). The Father’s intent is that you will experience His extravagant goodness, and come behind in no gift.

PRAYER:

Father, I desire to know you more intimately, for as I know you better, you will give me, through your great power, everything I need for living a truly good life. You even share your own glory and your own goodness with me! Lord Jesus, you have made me a king and priest – a royal house to serve as a priest unto God, my Father. I give you everlasting glory! You rule forever! You are an awesome God. Amen!

Scripture Reading John 10:10; 2 Peter 1:3; Revelation 1:6

An Overcoming Lifestyle

You are an overcomer by the word of your testimony and blood of the Lamb. Your testimony is not just words, but your everyday-going-to-work life. Look yourself in the mirror every morning, and declare that Jesus is Lord over your spirit, soul and body–that Jesus has been made unto you wisdom, righteousness and redemption. You are the body of Christ, you have the nature of God. This is the victory that overcomes the world, even your faith. Expect to have a good day. Remember, you are more than a conqueror through Him who loves you!

PRAYER

Father, I yield myself to the control of the Holy Spirit that I may bear His fruit of love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, good ness, faith, meekness and temperance. Help me remember to be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry. If I become angry I will not sin by nursing a grudge. With your help I will resolve my anger before sunset, and live at peace with all men as much as it is possible with me.

Scripture Reading Galatians 5:22-23; James 1:19-20; Ephesians 26-27; Romans 14:9

Equipped for Service

God wants you to fulfill your divine destiny. Put on the full armor of God, and continually build yourself up on your most holy faith; walk in love. God has given you His power and ability. He gave gifts to the believer: apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers to bring you to maturity and fullly equip you that you should do the work of ministering toward building up Christ’s body (the church). Attend a Bible-believing church, read and study the Bible, and pray. You are equipped for service!

PRAYER

O LORD, your love endures forever, and you will perfect that which concerns me. Through the Word I am put together and shaped up for the tasks you have for me – I am thoroughly equipped for every good work. I am confident that you will complete this great work you have begun in me – you will bring it to a flourishing finish on the very day Christ Jesus appears. Amen.

Children of Light

In Matthew 7:14 Jesus said you are the light of the world. Do not hide your light under a bushel by ignoring a friend or brother in need when it’s in your power to help him, or speaking harshly when a kind word would turn away wrath. Let your light so shine before men that they may see your moral excellence and your praiseworthy, noble, and good deeds and recognize and honor and praise and glorify your Father Who is in heaven (Matt 5:16 AMP).

PRAYER

Father, thank you for the Word who became flesh and dwelt among us. In Him was life and the Life was the Light of men. We are children of the Light, walking in Light and we have fellowship with one another, as the blood of Jesus purges all our sin. When we confess our sins, you are just to forgive us and to cleanse us from all wrongdoing. In Christ Jesus, through the shedding of His blood, we are redeemed. Amen.

Scripture Reading John 1:1-14; Ephesians 5:8, 1 John 1:7-9; Ephesians 1:7

Life in the Spirit

There was time when I tried to live by the rules of my church, but the legalistic doctrines were choking the life out of me. Then, I discovered Life in the Spirit, and my life was forever changed! Jesus came to give you a more abundant life, He and the Father live in you, and have given you the Holy Spirit to help you learn how to walk and live [habitually] in the [Holy] Spirit [responsive to and controlled and guided by the Spirit(Gal 5:16a). When you were born again, God gave you His nature and His ability. You can choose to live in and by the Spirit of God.

PRAYER

Father, I thank you for strengthening those whose hearts are fully committed to you. You prove yourself mighty on their behalf. LORD, you have done great things for your people, and we are filled with joy! We are a happy people, replacing the lower life for the higher life of the Spirit. Thank you for the great things you have done and are doing for us in the name of Jesus, amen.

God Directs Your Path

There is a way that seems right to man, but it leads to destruction. The good news is that God knew you before the foundation of the world, and He sent the Holy Spirit to help you make wise choices that lead to the more than abundant life. This path was designed by your Heavenly Father because you are His own handiwork (His workmanship), recreated in Christ Jesus, that you may do those good works which God planned beforehand for you paths which He prepared ahead of time, that you should walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for you to live] (Ephesians 2:10 AMP). Ask Him to order your steps in His Word because His Word is a lamp to your feet and a light to your path.

PRAYER

Father, may I always listen for Your gentle whisper. Thank You for sending the Holy Spirit to take me by the hand and guide me into all the truth. He speaks only what He hears, and He will tell me what is yet to come. In all my ways I acknowledge You, and You shall direct my path. In the name of Jesus, I thank You for Your great love for me. Amen.

A Soldier of Christ Jesus

The Apostle Paul said that he had fought a good fight. The fight you are in is the good fight of faith. When you were born again, you were given a prayer armor (Ephesians 6:10-18), and now you are an enforcer of the triumphant victory Jesus won at Calvary. Jesus stripped Satan of all his armor, and gave you spiritual weapons of warfare. You cannot be defeated if you stand, and having done all to stand, continue standing. The Word is your Sword, and victory is yours. You are an overcomer by the blood of the Lamb and the word of your testimony.

PRAYER

Father, with Your help, I endure hardship with others like a good soldier of Christ Jesus. My desire is to please You, and carry out Your orders. You are my Commanding Officer. I affirm that I am strong in the Lord and in Your mighty power. Putting on the full armor of God I stand against all the schemes of the devil. I purpose to remain alert, praying always with all kinds of prayers for all the saints everywhere. I throw aside everything that would hinder and entangle me, in the name of Jesus. Amen.

Scripture Reading 2 Timothy 2:3-4; Ephesians 6:10-18; Hebrews 12:1

Fruit of the Spirit

You are called a tree of righteousness, the planting of the Lord. God has given you His nature and His ability to develop fruit, which has to be cultivated; it doesn’t appear overnight. He imparts His gifts to you—things like affection for others, exuberance about life, serenity. You develop a willingness to stick with things, a sense of compassion in the heart, and a conviction that a basic holiness permeates things and people. You will find yourself involved in loyal commitments, not needing to force your way in life, but able to marshal and direct your energies wisely. (Read Galatians 5:22-23 The Message.) This is the fruit of the spirit in action.

PRAYER

Father, your Spirit lives in me, and I am swift to hear. I have learned it’s more important to listen than to be heard. I purpose to be slow to speak, and choose the words I speak with grace. I am slow to become angry. May my recreated human spirit, under the control of the Holy Spirit bear fruit — joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness and temperance, in the name of Jesus. Amen.

Scripture Reading James 1:19-20; Galatians 5:22-23

Children of God

When you were a child, you may have never received the nurturing and affirmation that you need to overcome obstacles to your success. There is a heavenly Father who wants to reveal Himself to you and define who you are. Let go of the past, and forgive those who have hurt you. When your father and your mother forsake you, the LORD will take care of you (Psalm 27:10). You have a Heavenly Father who chose you to be His very own child. He accepts you, and gives you His power and ability. You are a joint-heir with Jesus, and your Father is not withholding any good thing from you. You are not an orphan; you are not fatherless. Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God (1 John 3:1a)!

PRAYER

Father, thank you for working within me, giving me an obedient heart, for helping me do what you want. In everything I do, I purpose to stay away from complaining and arguing. I will live a clean, innocent life as a child of God in a dark world. May my life shine out among the inhabitants of this world like a beacon light as I hold out to them the Word of Life. I offer this prayer in the name of Jesus. Amen.

Flourishing Love

It is God’s intention that His people manifest love to one another, exhorting and encouraging each other. Let us hold fast to our confession of faith, and set aside the doctrines and traditions of men that divide and separate us. Determine to have the same love, and look out for not only our own interests, but also for the interests of others. Denominational walls are coming down, and we are reaching across the great divide to shake hands and learn from one another; we are not an island unto ourselves. By this shall all men know that we are His disciples, if we have love for one another.

PRAYER

In the name of Jesus, I pray for the Body of Christ. May our love flourish and I pray that we will love others appropriately. Help us to love one another sincerely and intelligently. May we live the life of a lover, circumspect and exemplary, a life Jesus will be proud of; bountiful in fruits from the soul, making Jesus Christ attractive to all, getting everyone involved in the glory and praise of God. Amen.
