#2 of 21 days of prayer- Hamp Greene
So many power points this early morning. JOY is a choice.
Pastor Hamp reminds us of the teaching of Paul. Do not be anxious about anything BUT in EVERYTHING by PRAYER AND PETITION, with THANKSGIVING, present your request to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your heart and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Speak God’s word over your life. Your children’s life. Your situation, Your mountain that you are facing. There is power in his word. PUT HIS WORD INTO PRACTICE. Meditate on it. OBSESS over it.
We have to “FIX” our minds on things that are true, noble, right, pure, etc. If we will do these things the God of PEACE will be with us. Remember happiness is EXTERNAL and joy is INTERNAL.
Lastly, As I wake this morning, I do not know what lies before me today, only God does. BUT, as I listen to praise music this morning and I am getting back into my early morning routine, I am thankful that of all scriptures that Hamp could have used, he used my favorite, the one that the Lord has brought into my life over and over. So many times, that friends have actually labeled it as my scripture. Hamp was referring to Philippians but then quoted 2 Timothy 1:7, God did NOT give us the spirit of fear, but of power, love and SELF DISCIPLINE.
WALK THRU THIS DAY KNOWING AND CLAIMING…. That the same power that raised Jesus from the dead LIVES IN US. (through our mistakes, our mishaps, it has overcome our past, our sin and it endures, His power lives in US)
