It is through the grace of God that we are able to have an intimate relationship with Him. And now, we can also work for the things that will please him. May our hearts always find joy in serving the Lord for He wants that everything we do be done out of our obedience to Him.
More than the conflicts that occur here in the physical world, there is a greater battle being fought in the spiritual realm. Victory is secured but the assaults of the enemy for the authority over the world still lingers. So how do we wage war against the schemes of the enemy?

There are days when we feel defeated because we choose to stay away from the presence of Christ. But only if we remain seated with Him and trust in His power that we can live victoriously each day that arrives.
To win our daily battles against our enemies, we must stand firm with Christ! Impossible things are made possible as we trust in the Lord!
We fight the Devil’s lies that lead to worry, grumbling, and discontent by filling our hearts each day with thanksgiving. The God that we serve is committed to our good, so even before we receive the answer to our prayers, we can choose to give thanks. All the promises God makes are YES in Jesus Christ!
What are you most grateful for today?
Be on guard and constant alert, for the enemy is always lurking around, waiting to attack and to use our weaknesses against us. In whatever you do, always be in tune to the Holy Spirit and live a life in line with the word of God. #CRCII#VOTD#StandFirm#faith#bible#VerseOfTheDay
Guard your heart and do not let the enemy distract your focus on God. Remember the good things He has done and believe that He has more in store. Continue immersing yourself in His word and never stop offering your cares upon Him. Let His will be done in your life!
Be careful of the things that fill your mind. Having negative thoughts may be used by the enemy to take you away from the presence of God.
Let the Lord's Word equip you with a renewed mind that reflects His glory and beauty. Focus on God that you may be filled with thoughts that bring hope and courage for you to endure each day that comes!

HOW TO GO DEEPER INTO GOD’S WORD
The Psalmist in Ps. 119:103 said - "How sweet your word is to my taste — sweeter than honey in my mouth." Whether we admit it or not, oftentimes, this is not the case.
So, how do we read our Bibles so that it makes an impact in our lives the way God intends to?
The first step is to familiarize ourselves with it. That means that to commit to make time for it. Schedule a specific time to read and enter in. Take note of the context of the chapter you're in and the people who are involved.
On your second reading, take good note of words or parts of scripture that capture your thoughts and feelings. These themes will help you gain understanding of what God wants to say as you read the Bible some more.
As you go over your reading for the third time, begin to spend some time in prayer. Create a prayer or a personal declaration based on the scripture you are reading as a way of claiming and enforcing the power of God's Word into your life.
On your fourth reading, ask God to show you how He wants you to live based on the Word He has impressed upon you. Put everything you have heard into practice. Then you will begin to live a life that walks according to the word and promises of the Lord.
Through reading the word of God, we build up intimate connection with the Holy Spirit. It is in hearing the life of Christ and it making an impression deep in our hearts that the renewing of mind and spiritual growth occurs. As Christians, let us develop a life long habit of daily reading of the Word and continuous walking with the Lord. #VOTD#CRCII#bible#habit#VerseOfTheDay
Satan tries to deceive us and he wants us to think that he is greater than us and still in contol over us.
We were made in the image and likeness of our Lord, so just as He won the spiritual battle, we also have the victory over the enemy. So keep your focus on the Lord and do not let the enemy deceive you by letting him have the authority over your life! You are victorious!
Ephesians 6:12 says, “For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.” So don’t fight the wrong battles.
The real war is not against man, but against Satan and his principalities who try to deceive us into sin. We cannot beat them using human methods but thru every weapon God has issued — His Word, prayer, truth, peace, and righteousness in Jesus Christ. With God on our side, we’re able to stand up to everything the Devil throws our way.
Knowing who God designed you to be is the first step to living out your destiny. However, spiritual wisdom and understanding in this matter don’t just fall from the sky. You need to ask great questions and ask the right people.
When you dig deep and inquire of God’s will for your life, He will surely answer. Ask for wisdom that comes only from Him; it is the key to an empowered, well-invested life.
The Lord has already blessed us with everything we need even before we know it. It is part of His plan for us to abound in favor with Him. Let us be secured that He will sustain us even in times of trouble. So for us to experience more of His abundant favor, choose to stay in His presence and trust that He will do great things for us. ❤
In the same way that Jesus was in fellowship with His disciples, it is our responsibility as Christians to also be in fellowship with our brothers and sisters. Let us be willing to move and encourage one another and correct each other in love. And to be one in heart and in mind in our faith with the wisdom that comes from the Holy Spirit as we grow together in the knowledge of God.
It is said in the Bible, whatever we ask the Lord in prayer, it shall be given to us. In order to grow in full understanding of His wisdom, we must learn to earnestly ask for the Holy Spirit to guide us deeper into the Father's heart.
As we desire to receive more of God in our lives, let us prepare our hearts as He fills us with His promises and new revelations!
The Bible says, when believers gather in Jesus’ name, everyone should be prepared with something that will benefit all. Whether it’s through a song, a lesson, a testimony, or a prayer, we should aim to serve and encourage one another because it reflects the very nature of Jesus Christ; He came to lift us up!
So let’s spend our times of community well and we can start with the desire to bless every person we meet. We are all given one of God's many wonderful gifts, so let’s use them to build each other up in the faith.
The faith that comes from hearing the Word of God has the power to move mountains and break strongholds, but it is nothing without action. Instead of just knowing, let us act based on our belief and the enablement that comes from God will empower us to make a difference in the lives of the people around us.
As beloved sons and daughters of God, let us walk on this earth equipped with overflowing love and encouraging one another to grow in faith. Just as Jesus did when He came into the world, we will also be living testaments of the love of God to the ends of the earth.
Let us strengthen one another through prayer and fellowship in the presence of God's great love!
As believers, we are called to manifest the glory of the Lord. When you remain faithful to Him and keep His word in your heart, God will enable you to stand as a bright example so the people around you can find the everlasting hope and comfort only He can give.
Today Lord we ask that you do incredible things in us, for us, and through us so that many will come to know You. Help us love You and honor You with everything that we’ve got so we can shine for You.
Through the blessing of accepting Jesus Christ, we are able to freely enjoy His abundant provision and the fullness of our inheritance in Him. As co-heirs with Christ, we must ask the Father for wisdom to live according to His purposes that will lead us to a glorious life. So, believe and accept Christ for He is the way to fulfilling our purpose in life.
The Lord has already blessed His people and part of our blessing is the Kingdom of God. In His Kingdom, there's no lack. We have been given full access to experience the entirety of our inheritance within His glorious presence.
Let us be hopeful upon God, the source of our everything. Do not be afraid because He has already provided for those who hope and wait upon Him!
How great it is to belong to Him and to His Kingdom that lives on forever!
Because we abound in grace through Jesus Christ, we gained life instead of death. Through the power of the cross, death no longer has power over us and we have eternal life that God has promised us. So, live a life that will eternally bring glory to God and rejoice in the gift of life that He has freely given us!
Our God is greater than any power there is in this world. The reign of the enemy here on earth and his authority over you is broken because of what was done on the cross. Believe that the Lord your God, who conquered death, is bigger, stronger and more powerful than all the troubles you face. We are overcomers, not because of our own strength, but because of Jesus Christ who lives within us. #QOTD#CRCII#Jesus#Overcomer#QuoteOfTheDay
As God's children, it is important that we build an intimate relationship with Him. It is when we seek His glorious face that we are being transformed from one degree of glory to another.
No one who stays in the presence of God remains the same. So, let us ready our hearts by spending time with the Lord in prayer and devotion. Be willing to receive His transformation as He takes us to a higher level of faith!
2 Peter 1 speaks about the great blessing of coming to know Jesus Christ. When He has called us to Himself, He has given us everything we could ever need so we can live lives that would please Him, for the praise and glory of His name.
So today, let’s take a moment to thank Him that His promises came through for us. He has provided for us. He kept us under His protection. He filled our hearts with joy. And He has more in store because He is a loving and trustworthy God. All glory and honor to Jesus!
It is through faith that we receive the life of true abundance which only comes from knowing Jesus Christ. Let’s pray for a faith that will stand firm in any circumstance for the Lord has a perfect plan for us. Let us exercise our faith in God through believing that He can do great and mighty things and lead us to our promised land!
In order for us to experience the overflowing provisions of the Promised Land, we must first align our way of thinking with God and lose all our fears and doubts against the giants in our lives. There is a fulfilling of promises if we see through the spirit the plans that God has laid out for us and press on towards living our life like Christ. #QOTD#CRCII#PromisedLand#Overcome#QuoteOfTheDay
On the way to the promise land, we shall pass through the wilderness. Here, peace is a must need for the heart to endure such conditions. A peace that gives rest and goes within the depths of one's being. The goodness and unconditional love of God provides us with this by giving His Word and promises to each and every one.
Take a firm hold on His promises and declare them upon your life. Trust and surely you will enjoy the peace that only Jesus provides even in the midst of problems and negativity.
Fullness of joy can only be found and be experienced in knowing who the Lord is, what He has done and what He can do. From understanding Jesus Christ being our Savior to having Him as the foundation of our hope and faith--- this gives us a deeper, and everlasting gladness than anything this world has to offer.
We rejoice even in the midst of uncertainties because we are secured in the promises of God that He placed in our hearts! Whatever circumstances come our way, our faith and joy is anchored in His goodness!
Starting today, rejoice in the Lord always! Again we say, REJOICE!
True disciples of Jesus Christ do not cower in times of trouble or suffering. They are found faithful and remain so, being assured that God is able to make them victors in any circumstance.
Lord, we know that You are bigger than any problem we face so by Your grace, we will not turn aside or lose hope. Give us wisdom and direct our steps so at the end of it all, we will be found righteous and precious in Your eyes.
It is by faith that we experience the goodness of God in our lives. We do not have to worry about any troubles that come our way because if we have our faith in God, He will surely show His perfect plan for us. Let us be sure of our faith in God as we live a life that pleases Him.
Jesus brought us back to our eternal destiny: to spend eternity dwelling in the presence of the Lord. The enemy wants to rob us of the wonderful things that are in store for us by God, but Jesus came to break the curse once and for all that we may experience the fullness of God. Let us follow our Shepherd Jesus Christ because He is the Way, the Truth and the Life. #VOTD#CRCII#Abundance#Life#VerseOfTheDay
In times of trouble and doubt, God has paved the way to victory in our lives. Just as Gideon and the 300 Israelites conquered and defeated the Midianites, in their small number the greatness of our big God was displayed. Their faith in the Almighty God delivered tens of thousands of enemies upon their feet!
We, the army of the Lord God Almighty, have received the strength to overcome what is before us even before we know what it is that's in front of us. He has delivered all works of the enemy upon our feet and He has made us victorious over them. We have received victory!
The Cross of Christ is wonderful thing if we understand what it means.
It is the power against sin’s hold on us.
It is the restoration of everything we have lost because of our disobedience.
It is freedom from anything that holds us back to come to God and enjoy a relationship with Him.
It is through the Cross that you’ve been set free!! Receive it today in Jesus’ name.
One of the blessings of the cross is that we can receive the life that God wants for us— a life of abundance, prosperity and victory! We can receive them if we accept and believe what God has done on the cross. Today, pause for a moment to thank the Lord, ask Him to strengthen our eyes of faith to see what He still has in store when we follow Him.
The curse that was inflicted unto us when Adam and Eve lost their focus on God was finally broken the moment we accepted Christ in our life. Everything against us was left on that cross and we can experience a life of abundance through believing in Jesus and obeying His word. #VOTD#CRCII#Abundance#Faith#VerseOfTheDay
The effect of sin's curse upon man was the cutting off of our relationship with God. But because of what Jesus did on the Cross, He became the bridge that reconnects us to God, and our relationship with Him was restored!
Strive to grow an intimate relationship with God by seeking His glory and dwelling in His presence daily.
The Lord wants to shower all His best to you but it will not happen apart from Him. Making God your Master and authority in your life will surely bring you protection, fulfillment, peace, and well-being.
Like Jesus, learn to pray “Father, not what I want but Yours be done.” And you will see that our wise and loving God will not let you down.
Our obedience matters to God. Everytime we choose to obey God, expect that He can make even the impossible things possible for us. Let us live an obedient life so we can witness more of God's work in us and through us.
Eating from the tree of life means denying ourselves and doing something out of pure obedience. Let it be known that the fight is against death and it was already won through Jesus Christ and His resurrection. The time is now to speak up, be heard, and be the source of life to those around you. #QOTD#CRCII#TreeOfLife#Jesus#QuoteOfTheDay
Jesus came down from heaven to defeat death and free us from its hold on us. And on the Cross where Christ gave Himself away, life was given to us and our relationship with God was restored.
From being the instrument for death, the Cross now became the symbol of our salvation!
Oh what unconditional love it was, that Jesus gave His life for us that we may be saved and free from the bondage of sin. Our old self is gone and we are born again through the resurrection of Christ Jesus.
This new life that we have received, one that is in unity with Him, let us live it to fulfill His calling for us and be the salt and light to the world.
It is no longer I who lives, but Christ who lives in me! #VOTD#CRCII#UnconditionalLove#VerseOfTheDay
Jesus took all of our sins away on the cross, and with it He disarmed the prideful and all the false authorities that condemns. Let nothing hinder you from the truth that you are set free and no longer slaves of sin. For Christ came not to condemn but to save! Rejoice in the victory of the Cross!
Because of God's unfailing love for us, Jesus was crucified to give us life. Through the cross, all our sins were taken away and we are saved from anything that the enemy holds against us.
Today, let us remember everything that God has sacrificed for us and may we always cling to the cross as we wait upon Him.
While we were dead to our sin and cut off from Him, God brought us back by sending His son Jesus Christ to the cross on our behalf. The shedding of His blood wiped out all of the Enemy’s hold against us and we have been set free. Such amazing grace!
Today, may you be empowered to spend your life faithfully in light of what Jesus has done. May you experience the power of the cross that is in you as you tell others about God’s wonderful love.
“I also pray that you will understand the incredible greatness of God’s power for us who believe him. This is the same mighty power that raised Christ from the dead and seated him in the place of honor at God’s right hand in the heavenly realms.” | Ephesians 1:19-20 NLT #HeisRisen#ResurrectionSunday#JesusLives#CRCII#QuoteoftheDay#QoTD

So let us remember what Jesus has done on the Cross, His great sacrifice freely given to us that we did not deserve. Thank the Lord and receive His amazing love and mercy!
Jesus, the Lamb of God who knew no sin, laid down his life to save us from our sins. Through the blood of the Lamb, we have been set free and released from our iniquities. Today, remember what God has done for us by taking your part in the body and blood of Christ. Receive Him wholeheartedly that His power may protect us and be with us in this life!

With every word you speak and every laying on of hands you do in the Name of Jesus, you release healing. It’s not because of you but because of God’s anointing in you.

You are called to manifest God’s glory through your gifts. He has deposited greatness in you that you will only recognize if you remain in the position of worship. You can always ask the Holy Spirit to remind you and empower you with instruction, faith, and authority to declare God’s goodness wherever you go.
Receive the boldness to minister to those around you today because the Holy Spirit is with you! Lift Christ up and He will draw men to Himself.
