Rhythms of Grace, Weekly Devotional, 18 October 2020

What you birth in the flesh, you have to maintain in the flesh. What you birth in the Spirit, will be maintained by the Spirit. The Bible says that, in this world, you will have trouble, but you can overcome because Christ has overcome. You may not feel like an overcomer, but your feelings don’t change the truth. Remind yourself of this all throughout the day. Being positive in a negative situation is not naïve. It’s what leaders do. Keep the right attitude. It’s easy to be distracted by the storms of life, but when you learn how to keep your eyes on Jesus you can accomplish the mission He has called you to.

The more hell comes against you, the closer you are to the goal. The more opposition you face, the more you’re going in God’s direction. Don’t give up, don’t give in, what God has for you is soooo GREAT it will make the difficult days seem like nothing. HOLD ON! Meditate on this wonderful truth today and begin to declare over your life: “I am fixing my gaze on You, Lord, and I’m not going to be moved by what I see or feel right now.” When God’s word is found in your life it’s going to bring transformation. It’s going to bring change to you.

2 Corinthians 5:21 “God made Him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in Him we might become the righteousness of God.”

Because you are the righteousness of God in Christ, the Lord Himself will sustain you and not allow you to be shaken. “Cast your cares on the Lord and He will sustain you; He will never let the righteous be shaken.” (Psalm 55:22). I pray strength for you today to press in and push through. God has an incredible future for you, your days of mourning will be turned into supernatural joy. Hold on and hold strong, in the name of Jesus. Have an overcoming week in CHRIST.
