THE ENCOURAGEMENT CORNER - EQUIPPED BY GOD!
God has equipped us for victory. All we have to do is be in relationship with Him and listen to His direction.
"Incline your ear [submit and consent to the divine will] and come to Me; hear, and your soul will revive; and I will make an everlasting covenant or league with you, even the sure mercy (kindness, goodwill, and compassion) promised to David." (Isaiah 55:3 AMPC)
We have been sealed and ratified by the blood of Jesus into an everlasting covenant. He will make us exactly who we were created to be and equip us to carry out His will.
"Now may the God of peace [Who is the Author and the Giver of peace], Who brought again from among the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep, by the blood [that sealed, ratified] the everlasting agreement (covenant, testament), Strengthen (complete, perfect) and make you what you ought to be and equip you with everything good that you may carry out His will; [while He Himself] works in you and accomplishes that which is pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ (the Messiah); to Whom be the glory forever and ever (to the ages of the ages). Amen (so be it)." (Hebrews 13:20-21 AMPC)
God has a standard that He has equipped us to meet. It's not on me or on you to go it alone. God is with us every step of the way!
"He [God] Himself has said, I will not in any way fail you nor give you up nor leave you without support. [I will] not, [I will] not, [I will] not in any degree leave you helpless nor forsake nor let [you] down (relax My hold on you)! [Assuredly not!]" (Hebrews 13:5 AMPC)
I love that God empowers us without limits.
"Behold! I have given you authority and power to trample upon serpents and scorpions, and [physical and mental strength and ability] over all the power that the enemy [possesses]; and nothing shall in any way harm you." (Luke 10:19 AMPC)
LET THIS BE YOUR PRAYER:
Lord, I desire deeper intimacy with You! Let me reflect deeper wisdom, insight, understanding, and discernment in my quest for You and in my interactions with others. Thank You for Your covering that protects me. May I ever reside under the shelter of Your arms, right next to Your heart. Lord, let Your Kingdom come, and Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven, through me.
"HE WHO dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall remain stable and fixed under the shadow of the Almighty [Whose power no foe can withstand]. I will say of the Lord, He is my Refuge and my Fortress, my God; on Him I lean and rely, and in Him I [confidently] trust!" (Psalm 91:1-2 AMPC)
