"The Lord is the one who goes ahead of you; He will be with you. He will not fail you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed" - Deuteronomy 31:8 (NIV). 

There is a whole industry of motivational speakers. It's purpose is to inspire those who listen with words of encouragement. On occasion everyone of us needs to receive such uplifting messages, especially when low or need that spark to get life going.

There is no better place to find motivational and inspirational messages than in God's rich word. Right from the begining God's word has declared all that believe in Christ have overcome this world and all its trials because of the finished work of Christ on the cross.For He said "In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world" (John 16:33).

As believers we are already new creatures in Christ (II Corinthians 5:17). We are already the righteousness of God (II Corinthians 5:21). We have already overcome Satan by the blood of the lamb and the word of our testimony (Revelation 12:11). And we continue to overcome whenever we resist, counteract, and destroy the works of the devil in our lives. In fact, whenever we resist the devil he will flee from us (James 4:7).

So anyone who is in Christ, is already an overcomer. Indeed, the word of God says, "No in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. (Romans 8:37).

Whenever you go in a race you may have doubts about completing or emerging victorous. The believer in Christ right from the set is assured of victory because Christ has gone ahead of us to prepare a banquet for those that believe in Him.

Prayer for today: Lord Father God of Abraham, maker of heaven and earth, what a joy to know that because of faith in you I have overcome and I am more than a conqueror, so I walk confidently as one victorous, this I pray in Jesus's name

    As believers God has given us hope that our lives are not empty and meaningless, like so many others. He has given us the hope to carry us through the lowest of moments. “I wait for the Lord, my whole being waits, and in His word I put my hope” (Psalm 130:5).
    Today, may that hope that you have in Christ sustain you through whatever circumstances you may be facing.

    Prayer for today: Lord Father God of Abraham, maker of heaven and earth, today I pray in the wonderful name of Jesus that the hope I have in you lifts me up and sustains me in all situations as a conquer, in whose name I pray.
