Lord, I don’t want to be double-minded. So help me focus on You, and Your will. Lead to those people You want me to help.
Celebrate National Food Day
October 24 was “National Food Day.” The newscaster on television said so. After I heard that good news, I got all excited about a day to celebrate food. Wow! What a wonderful idea. How can I celebrate?
So . . . after thinking about it, I came up with an exciting plan to celebrate. It’ll surprise you. So . . . can you guess what I did to celebrate?
Victory and freedom, will I ever be there? Again I chose to overeat last night, including ice cream. Lord, forgive my gluttony. (This was written a while back. Praise God for His delivering power. New Day of Victory. )
Child, wrong choices postpones victory. However, you have free will to choose. So, will you choose your victory or ice cream? Last night, you chose ice cream. Now what will it be today? Food pleasure or victory and freedom, you get to choose.
Lord, I want victory and freedom.
Then Child, you have to let go of your food pleasures to gain your victory and freedom.
Lord, I’m sorry I disappointed You last night.
Child, I hurt for you because I know what could be. I know the victory and freedom I hold in My hand for you. Yet you chose self-pleasure with food instead of the victory I designed for you.
Lord, I’m weak.
Don’t you know every time you say “no” to temptation, it increases your strength? My child, I don’t want you walking through life defeated. Instead, I want you walking in victory.
Today you’ll have another temptation. This time say “No” and experience the thrill of victory. Find your pleasure in victory over temptation. With every battle can come the exhilarating thrill of victory and freedom. Only you can make this choice. I won’t force you. I’m ready to provide all the strength you need to resist temptation. But only if you ask. Then My strength will come.
Lord, help me to submit myself to Your will.
Child, every choice you make today may seem small in your eyes, but I know the eternal impact. Every choice you make today affects your future. Choose well for it is you who determines your future. I’ve already planned for you a hope and a future, but it is you who chooses to accept My plan or not.
Now choose well. My way will guarantee you victory and freedom. Choose the way of self gratification and eventually it’ll bring defeat. Defeat is birthed from selfish desires, selfish pleasures, and self gratifications. Total and final victory comes through submission to My will. Now Child, which way will you choose?
I have victory already planned for you, but you determine how long it takes you to get there. You also have the ability to choose victory or not. But I’ve already have it planned for you. As you walk in My will, you’ll experience victory. Now go forth in victory, My Child.
Yes Sir. Help me Sir.
Child, I’m here for you. Call on Me for I am ready to provide whatever you need, especially endurance and strength.
The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord, and He delights in his way. Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down; for the Lord upholds him with His hand. Psalms 37: 23-24. NKJV
”For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29: 11 NIV
