Healing-Friday Freedom

He heals the brokenhearted
    and binds up their wounds.

Healing-Thursday Thought

He heals the brokenhearted
    and binds up their wounds.

Psalm 147:3 ESV



What area of your life (anger, resentment, bitterness) are you blocking God from coming in, healing you, and making you whole?

Healing-Wednesday Word

He heals the brokenhearted
    and binds up their wounds.
Psalm 147:3 ESV



There is an ad for Neosporin where kids are sitting around comparing scars and each is claiming to be the toughest. One girl attempts to show her scar, but under her bandage the skin looks perfectly fine because the healing ointment has worked so well. So the other kids believe she is telling lies about what caused her scar.

When you allow Jesus into your life He will heal you so well that people won't believe what you've been through!

Enough-Friday Freedom

Lord, you alone are my inheritance, my cup of blessing.
    You guard all that is mine.
Psalm 16:5 NLT



Lord thank You for being my portion. You alone are all that I need. When I am tempted to covet what someone else has remind me of all that You are to me. Thank You for your abundant grace and mercy! AMEN

Lord, you alone are my inheritance, my cup of blessing.

If you have God in your life (the Creator and Master of all) what else do you need?

Enough-Wednesday Word

Lord, you alone are my inheritance, my cup of blessing.
    You guard all that is mine.
Psalm 16:5 NLT


If all you do is obsess over what other people have, then YES their grass will look greener. Stay away from that line of thinking! "Water your own grass" by cultivating your own spiritual gifts and asking what God's plan is for your own life. Trust Jesus Christ to be more than enough in your life then grow and flourish like never before!

Enough-Tuesday Truth


The Lord is my chosen portion and my cup;
    you hold my lot.

Psalm 16:5 ESV



Trust in God and worry over your situation don't mix. Do you trust God to be enough or not?

Union-Friday Freedom

For sin will have no dominion over you, since you are not under law but under grace.
Romans 6:14 ESV


Jesus thank You for giving me new life. In you I am renewed. Old habits and desires do not define me. I am in Christ. Help me to live in that freedom everyday. When I am tempted and discouraged remind me, through Your Spirit and Your Word, that sin no longer has dominion over me! AMEN

Union-Thursday Thought

Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, to make you obey its passions. Do not present your members to sin as instruments for unrighteousness, but present yourselves to God as those who have been brought from death to life, and your members to God as instruments for righteousness.
Romans 6:12-13 ESV


Do you understand that sin is a choice? Well for those of us in Christ it is. We have been freed from the bondage of sinful habits and desires. Why would anyone want to live in that anymore?

Union-Wednesday Word

So you also must consider yourselves dead to sin and alive to God in Christ Jesus.
Romans 6:11 ESV

Just like the caterpillar goes through a change to become a butterfly, in Christ we have done the same. We are not what we used to be. We have a completely new nature. God makes us new.

Union-Tuesday Truth

For if we have been united with him in a death like his, we shall certainly be united with him in a resurrection like his. 
Romans 6:5 ESV


A shift in perspective can be greater than a change of circumstances. Remind yourself each day that you have already won the battle with sin, in Christ!

For if we have been united with him in a death like his, we shall certainly be united with him in a resurrection like his. 
Romans 6:5 ESV


In Christ you have died to your old nature and been resurrected with Him. When you don't see yourself as a new creation remember that God still does.

Lord thank You for new life. I know that through the power of Your Spirit I can live in victory over my sinful nature. Before knowing You I was dead in my sin. But You have set me FREE! Jesus show me how to live in that freedom! AMEN

Obedience-Thursday Thought

But what fruit were you getting at that time from the things of which you are now ashamed? For the end of those things is death.
Romans 6:21 ESV




Before knowing Christ you were free live anyway you wanted to. But what good was coming from that?

Obedience- Wednesday Word

Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, to make you obey its passions.
Romans 6:12 ESV


When someone decides to eat healthier and and avoid certain foods over a long period of time the results are interesting. Greasy foods can make you sick. Soda can give you a headache. Processed foods will taste terrible. Over time a person doesn't have to try and avoid these things, because their appetite has changed. Living a godly is hard work, but over time it gets better. When you seek Jesus zealously sinful habits and negative relationships will make you sick. Certain sins become so repulsive that you naturally stay away from them and feed your spirit with the things of Christ.

Obedience-Tuesday Truth

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.
Romans 6:12 ESV

Jesus knows that we are not perfect. That's why He died to give us a new life and new relationship with God. The Christian life can be overwhelming sometimes. But remember, its not about perfection, but progression! Keep pressing forward.

What I love about statements such as this one is that if God gives us a command, then He will also empower us to execute it. Have you accepted Jesus as Savior and Lord? if so then the power of Christ in you will help you live a righteous life.
