Are you experiencing a life of joy and peace? Or do you simply get by? Do you say to yourself, well life would be better if this was different or if that were better or if that had never happened? Well, today is a new day! Put these principles into practice and enjoy a happier life.
Romans 8:1-2 says: “So now there is no condemnation for those who belong to Christ Jesus. And because you belong to him, the power of the life-giving Spirit has freed you from the power of sin that leads to death.” No matter what you have or have not done, there is forgiveness. And once you receive forgiveness, condemnation no longer has a place in your life. Embrace the truth that Jesus paid for every sin, think about the truth in Romans 8:1-2 and receive forgiveness.
Honor God in Everything
In First Samuel 2:30, God said, “I will honor those who honor me.” He wants to bless His people with favor and blessings, but He wants them to acknowledge and realize that the blessings in their lives come from Him. He doesn’t want them to strive for promotion and the world’s benefits in their own strength.
Recognize the Work of the Holy Spirit
Romans 8:11 says, “The Spirit of God, who raised Jesus from the dead, lives in you. And just as God raised Christ Jesus from the dead, he will give life to your mortal bodies by this same Spirit living within you.” This verse is talking about more than simply the resurrection of your physical body. It is also talking about the power that’s available to you while you’re still on earth. Right now, you can live in the power of the resurrection!
Change Your Words
The words you speak matter. In fact, Proverbs 18:21 says, Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.” If you dwell on what you think is wrong with your life, your life will be sadder and less fulfilling. Instead, concentrate on all God has done for you and let that thankfulness permeate your conversations.
Remember Whose You Are
Jesus paid the ultimate price for your freedom. By His blood, you have direct access to your Heavenly Father, you have been adopted into the kingdom and all the blessings of God belong to you (Read Deuteronomy 28). Don’t spend another day settling for less. Let the truth of whose you are so envelope you that it changes your outlook.
