Happy July! Happy Monday! Happy 4th of July!
Look, it’s a new month and a new day. Do you know what that means?
God’s brand new mercies are available to us! Let me tell you how I know.
22 Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed,
Because His compassions fail not.
23 They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness.
24 “The Lord is my portion,” says my soul,
“Therefore I hope in Him!”
25 The Lord is good to those who wait for Him,
To the soul who seeks Him.
26 It is good that one should hope and wait quietly
For the salvation of the Lord.
- Lamentations 3:22-26 NKJV
Today and the rest of this month, I just want you to remember
you get to reset!
If you woke up with any complaints, switch them to praise even if your emotions/attitude are telling you not to.
Matter of fact, try this, repeat after me…
"Lord I thank you!"
Now keep saying it until you can’t say it no more! (I said it right)
If you woke up with pain or sickness, exercise your privilege of prayer and speak healing over yourself through the word. (Isaiah 53:5)
If you woke up to bad news, trust that God is a very present help in the time of trouble. (Psalm 46:1)
If you woke up feeling like you’re not good enough for God’s blessings, read Lamentations 3:22-26 out loud and just meditate on it today and the rest of this month!
Here is how you can read it if ya need it:
Through the Lord's mercies, I am not consumed! His compassion for me will not fail. It's brand new for me this morning, and every other morning I rise! The Lord is all that I need so I can place my hope in Him today! The Lord is good to those who wait and seek Him, so I will continue to hope and wait for Him and His salvation! The salvation that has freed me from sin and rescues me daily!
I truly hope you enjoyed your holiday weekend and that you have a safe 4th of July! I know everyone doesn’t celebrate the 4th, BUT we can all remember and celebrate the liberty that we find when the Spirit of the Lord is present! (2 Corinthians 3:17)
Be set free! Invite Him in this morning to walk with you the rest of the day! Let Him know you’re aware of Him and I pray that He will let you know He is present ;)
Let me know if I can pray for you! =)
