Surrender

Most people do not like the word Surrender. For many the word means giving up or losing. This is especially true in the me first culture of today. But if we want to truly walk as a disciple of God’s, we cannot skate over the beautiful truth of surrendering.

When our bodies are out of alignment, we can definitely feel it. If we do not have our doctor check things out, our bodies will continue to decline. Not just physically, but emotionally, mentally and spiritually. We will start experiencing more defeats than victories.

Until we bring our thoughts and actions into proper alignment with God, we will continue to wear out. We will continue being out of alignment. But when we completely lay everything at the foot of the Cross, we become properly aligned with the will of God. Our hopes and dreams stop being centered around us and start being centered on the will of our Heavenly Father.

When we get caught up in the culture of the world, it can be tough to get realigned with the will of God. But surrendering everything to God is the first step to living a victorious and abundant life. I pray you take that first step today. ~OC

Unity

Today’s a new day! Unity is something we desperately need in our world these days. We are surrounded by so much division. All you have to do is scroll through social media, turn on the news or go to a family get together. The Us vs.Them mentality has divided nations, families and churches. But the truth is, there is no such thing as Us vs. Them. There is only Us. Until we embrace this truth, we will continue to have division in our communities, state, nation and world.

So here’s my challenge. In our world today. I hope you will join me in praying daily for God’s love, forgiveness and grace to be poured out all across the world. May we each humble ourselves and pray for unity in our families, communities and churches. May our world experience a beautiful healing. ~OC

Waiting

Waiting. For most of us, waiting is not one of our favorite things. What do you do when life finds you in a state of waiting? When all we can do is wait. Waiting on test results. Waiting on a relationship to be mended. Waiting for a breakthrough. Waiting for a sign from God that it will not always be like this… waiting can be taxing, discouraging and deflating. Waiting can cause us to question our faith. To question God.

But what if waiting is the season God is using to grow us? That there is purpose behind the waiting. God wants us whole and He wants us free, and He will often take us on a journey of discovery before we get to the fulfillment of what we hope for. God has your back and He wants what is best for you. God is for you and will not forsake you, even in the middle of your biggest storm. Even during the waiting. ~OC

Passion

Today’s a new day! Because we were created by God for his glory, our desire should be to know and share His truth passionately with a lost world. ~OC

Watch Who You Model

Your spouse is not your model. God is.

Your friend is not your model. God is.

Your career/job is not your model. God is.

Your church is not your model. God is.

Your pastor is not your model. God is.

Your favorite entertainer is not your model. God is.

Be careful who or what you model. ~OC

A Prayer

Dear Jesus, your amazing words speak of healing and restoration and I thank you for the miracles and healings you still perform today. Today I claim those promises over every one that needs a healing touch from you. I believe in the healing power of faith and prayer and I ask you to begin your mighty work in the lives of those needing to feel your healing touch in their bodies. Please surround those needing healing with your supernatural peace and strength and give them the faith to believe that all things are possible for you. Protect them from the lies and discouragement from the enemy and let the miraculous healing begin. Thank you Jesus. Amen. ~OC
