The Hope of Glory

Colossians 1:27 – To whom God would make known what is the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:

If you are not a Jew you were a Gentile.  God has made known the mystery of His glory unto us.  It is all of Him.  It is Himself.  This hope of glory, Jesus Christ, is inside of us.  Always remember that.  No matter what you may be facing, you are never facing it alone.

Jesus is inside of you so you have everything you need.

You carry His name so use it to make your situation bow to you. 

You carry His spirit so weak in tongues to build up your strength to endure.  

You carry His character so people will flock to you to get to know more about him.

You carry Him with the Father in you therefore miracles and signs will follow you, pointing the way to back to Him.  

With Him inside of you, speak His name over whatever is happening, build yourself up while speaking in tongues, be ready to tell others about him and turn around their situations to see the God in everything that you and that they do.  

Jesus is that hope of glory.  No matter what you are facing, no matter what the doctors said, no matter how that child is acting, and no matter what your friends speak about you – Jesus is that hope that you hold unto despite everything.  He is that light that shines in that dark saying or situation.  He is who turns everything around for His good.  

The same Jesus that fed the people from 5 fishes to having 12 baskets leftover;

The same Jesus that told Peter were to cast off and catch more fish than his net could hold;

This is the same Jesus that has showed up for you.  He will not take from you but will add to what you have or create something from nothing.  

Why?  Because this the same Jesus that healed the sick for free and fed those in need.  

Jesus is in you therefore you have divine health with supernatural strength.  Nothing can defeat you.  You are a walking phenomenon.  

Stand up straight with your head high and walk proudly knowing you are never alone.  

Can you remember a time when you thought you were alone and then realized Christ was right there with you; dwelling on the inside of you?

DAILY NEWS – Submit, Resist, And He Will Flee

Submit and Resist and he will Flee

James 4:7

Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.  

Oh!  What a mouth full.  First, there is always a first; a beginning.  We see that we have to submit ourselves to God.  Before you even get to the devil you have to had already submitted to God.  The verse before this mentions God giving grace to the  humble so, first, stand strong in knowing what God has done for you.  

Submission to God means to acknowledge Him in your life.  Begin to thank Him for what He is already doing in your life.  Acknowledge Him for what He has already done.  You have probably been doing this already and by doing so you have gotten the devils attention.  

So, continue to stand strong in God.  Next, resist the devil.  As the devil reminds you of your past mistakes and failures, do not go back to them. The devil cannot force you to do anything.  If you have stopped doing something or given up bad habits, do not go back to them when the the devil confronts you with them.  All he will do is place them before you in your mind and eyesight and all you have to do is focus on remembering what God is and has already been doing in your life.  

Finally, as you resist the devil he turns and runs from you.  He does not just walk away but he runs way.  Why? Because he knows that the only way and reason that you are able to not give in is because you have submitted yourself to God.  Once he realizes this he RUNS away.

Why would the devil runaway? Because he remembers what Jesus did to him before.  Jesus, spoiled everything he had by destroying it; crushing it.  He then gathered all the people and spirits around to see a public display of humiliation to him.  Yes, Jesus publicly humiliated the devil and all his workers in his kingdom.  Then, not only that, Jesus stripped the devil of his clothes!  This is what happens to kings when they are defeated, and given mercy.  They are humiliated but they keep their lives.  Although they have their lives, everyone knows that they were defeated and basically become a laughing example for what happens when you go against a stronger kingdom.  

You can find this information throughout the bible but also summed up in the New Testament in Colossians 2:15.

So remember, you just hold fast on thinking about God and the devil will run away from you like a dog with his tail tucked.  

I love you and Jesus does, too.  

Can you think of a time you ever stood on God and your life got better?
