Greetings! I am so grateful for the opportunity to share God's wisdom with you on today. I consider it a joyful moment that I set aside time for these weekly messages of hope and peace for not just your reading pleasure, but a potential change of heart. When we become aware of the power God has in our lives, that power that was bestowed upon Christ in Matthew 28:18, that same power has been extended to us to GO! and make others aware of His power, His grace and His love in their lives too.
So, today, no matter the barriers you face in the work that you do or the people you encounter, become aware that when we are IN Christ, this self-awareness calls for a deep change of heart. Isa. 40:31 says "those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint." We may possess hope, but Isaiah is reminding us that our hope must be anchored "in the Lord." Don't try to do this work alone. Don't rely on your pedigrees, knowledge and self-power to pull the day off! By doing so, you become exhausted, weary, beat down and ready to faint at the end of the day.
Be WINNERS so that you can soar on wings like eagles, run and not get weary, knowing that you have a power in you that is greater than the power of the world, or even your work. On this WINS-day, plug into the Source so that when you pick up your cross today, you are not using your own power to bear its weight, but allowing His power to fuel your hearts, minds and spirits, thereby effecting an end that's a WIN!!
