FROM VICTIM, THROUGH VICTORY, TO VICTOR

🔥ANCIENT WORDS DEVOTION🔥
Thursday, May 24, 2018

📜2 Corinthians 1:3,4 “Let us give thanks to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the merciful Father, the God from whom all help comes! He helps us in all our troubles, so that we are able to help others who have all kinds of troubles, using the same help that we ourselves have received from God.” GNT

💭Let your TBT (Throw Back Thursday) for today be all the troubles that God has delivered you from. There was a time you had an ‘impossible’ situation and the God of all possibilities came through for you. “…with God all things are possible.” Matthew 19:26

⏭Don’t stop at that. Use these experiences as tools for helping others that are experiencing similar troubles. Let the Light of God in you shine by glorifying Him (giving Him the glory for the deliverance you received) by sharing your testimony, so that they too can glorify your Father. “Matthew 5:16”

😨Having the problem was a headache;
🙂Getting your problem solved is a relief;
😇Helping someone solve their problem will be glorious.

📝Therefore take notes as the Lord delivers you. Each step is crucial; not only for you but also for those you are called to.

💡 In the morning, the issue was a problem. At noon it is a problem solved. In the evening you become a problem solver.©αnneobure

🙏🏾Father, over and over You have bailed me out. Today I ask You to remind me of all the successes I have had in You so that I may encourage others. Thank You for Your Word, in Jesus Name and by the Power of the Holy Spirit, Amen.

🙏🏾SHALOM🙏🏾

Does God Respect Man?

By God’s Grace (kindness) and Mercy (compassion), we are respected. What do I mean by this? Sin came into the world through man and this caused God to turn His face away from man. Man was cursed (due to sin) and could only be delivered through the Sinless Sacrifice, causing God to give His only Begotten Son, Jesus Christ, to die in the place of man, and glory be to God, death could not keep its hold on Him! (Acts 2:24). This is indeed God’s Grace and Mercy.

What does respect mean?

Let’s break this word into two:

  1. Re – a prefix meaning ‘again and again’, repetition.
  2. Spect – to see; to observe; to look; to watch over.

Therefore, respect means:

  • To see someone in a positive Light
  • To show concern; to show pity
  • To turn back towards; to return
  • To help; to extend favor (to favorably look upon)

Why did God do this? Do we really deserve respect? The answer is no. Respect is the undeserved ‘favor’ that is portrayed by the Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. The two words can be used interchangeably.

This is the main reason why destruction CANNOT and will not come upon us.

On A Light Note: Now I understand what scholars mean when they say, ‘Respect is earned and is also two – way’ As I respect God, He in turn respects (favors) me.

Prayer: Lord, thank You for Your Grace and Mercy over my life that has caused You to respect (favor) me. Thank You for seeing me in a positive Light. Thank You for showing concern over my life. Thank You for returning; turning back towards me. Thank You for helping me. Because of this, destruction shall NEVER come my way in Jesus Name, Amen!

Music Corner:

You ask, ‘What does it take to be respected (favored) by the Lord? All you need to do is to say this simple prayer: “Dear God, I come to You in the Name of Jesus. I admit that I am not right with You, and I want to be right with You. I ask You to forgive me of all my sins. The Bible says if I confess with my mouth that “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in my heart that God raised Him from the dead, I will be saved (Rom. 10:9). I believe with my heart and I confess with my mouth that Jesus is the Lord and Savior of my life. Now I surrender. Thank You for saving me!
In Jesus’ Name I pray. Amen.”

Salvation is A glorious epilogue to man’s existence! Being Swallowed up by the Love of Christ, the Word of God being my Favorite Place; I am no longer Faceless! Not a Foreigner in the Kingdom of God, but a Child of God!
