FS WORD OF POWER
April 22, 2020
There are certain things we have to, ought to and must LET GO…
Today as you read this let me address THREE LIES that you have to let go of:
1) “You are not strong enough to do this” – But scripture says in Psalm 46:1-3 “God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore, we will not fear, though the earth gives way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, 3 though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging.”
2) “You are not brave enough to do this”- But scripture says in Joshua 1:9” Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”
3) “You have messed up too much to have any hope” But scripture says in 2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!”
And in Lamentations 3:22-23:
The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases, his mercies never come to an end;
23 they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.
The enemy is a LIAR- always has been, always will be. There is no truth in him- at all. Everything he says, everything he suggests and tempts you with is a LIE! He is out after one thing and one thing only: to destroy your life by believing his lies! I believe that for every Lie the enemy wants to snare you with- God has a word of TRUTH! Because everything God says is true. God is not capable of lying according to Numbers 23.19 “God is not a man, that He should lie, Nor a son of man, that He should repent; Has He said, and will He not do it?
Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?” And Apostle Paul reassures us in Hebrews 6:18 that:” it is impossible for God to lie, we who have taken refuge would have strong encouragement to take hold of the hope set before us.” Yeshua said: I AM the Truth!
Moreover, we should:
Let go of complaining — focus on gratitude.
Let go of being a pessimist — become an optimist.
Let go of harsh judgments — think kind thoughts.
Let go of worrying — trust divine providence.
Let go of discouragement — be full of hope.
Let go of bitterness — turn to forgiveness.
Let go of hatred — return good for evil.
Let go of negativism — be positive.
Let go of anger — be more patient.
Let go of gloom and doom — enjoy the beauty that God has created around us.
Let go of jealousy — be happy and bless others- it´s our turn soon!
Let go of gossiping — control our tongue and speak to encourage and to empower.
Instead we should LET GOD be our focus and Hope! Let me encourage you today to have FAITH in him who will never lie to you! God can be trusted, and he is reliable! Allow me to close with one of my favorite scriptures (and I have many…) James 1:17: “Every good thing given and every perfect gift is from above; it comes down from the Father of lights [the Creator and Sustainer of the heavens], in whom there is no variation [no rising or setting] or shadow cast by His turning [for He is perfect and never changes]. It was of His own will that He gave us birth [as His children] by the word of truth, so that we would be a kind of first fruits of His creatures [a prime example of what He created to be set apart to Himself—sanctified, made holy for His divine purposes].
