“For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them” (Ephesians 2:10 NASB).
No matter what anyone else has to say about those of us who belong to Jesus, we know that we are His Workmanship–He created us to do good works and we will by faith–do all things well.
The last two days have been particularly challenging for me, but I refuse to give in and cave because of all the challenges. In my spirit, I heard The Lord say, “Don’t think about what you’re going through, focus on encouraging others.”
Even though this was a message for me, I think others may feel that it is applies to them as well. When we focus on others, we don’t have time to have pity parties or to dwell on the negatives. In life, stuff happens and we do not have the ability to control most of what happens. So, when it happens we either fix, pray about it and move on, or allow the circumstance to control us. I don’t know about you, but I refuse to allow my circumstances to control me–I have too much work to do.
God–in His infinite Wisdom–always speaks and directs those who are willing to listen. I’m so glad that I heard Him speak and I will conquer all the negative stuff that has happened within the last 24 hours. I am victorious in all things and nothing the enemy attempts to use against me shall in any way succeed in my life. Of this one thing, I am confident–He who began a good work in me, is faithful to complete it. I am created for good works, not pity parties. I am created–to be a witness of God’s love, mercy and grace. I am created–to encourage all who think they are in this fight alone. You are never alone. Jesus promised to be with us always! He never breaks His promises!
Just as I am created for good works–so are you–now get busy, in the name of Jesus!
