DIG for Friday the 22nd of April…..you can get rid of that problem in our life…..Philippians 4 v 13

Last night in our Bible study I had a vivid picture of a huge rock.

A person was on top of this and I saw them drop a very small piece of dynamite into a hole in the rock.

As the person went away the dynamite exploded and the rock disappeared.

I think the Lord was showing me that the rock was a big problem and the dynamite was the power inside us, saying we can remove and overcome any problem in our path.

As born again believers we have the powerful Spirit of God inside us, at our disposal.

We can do all things through this power (Philippians 4 v 13).

We can be more than conquerors in all areas of life through Jesus (Romans 8 v 37).

We can be overcomers in all things in this life on earth.

The Lord was showing me that if we use the power that He has given us we could do anything!

We have the power, but we are required to use it.

It is like having electricity but not putting on the light switch, until it is turned on it is useless.

There is no problem in this life that cannot be sorted with “a little piece of God”.

God’s power is bigger than any problem we have and God is not surprised by our problems; He was equipped us in such a way that we can defeat anything that comes across our path.

Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord for the awesome power that you have put on the inside of me”.

Philippians 4 v 13…..I can do all things through Christ which strengthen me

DIG for Saturday the 5th of September…..the shield of faith…..Ephesians 6 v 16

When you have faith in something you put your trust in that thing, you have confidence in that it will do what it is supposed to do.

Our faith (our hope and trust) should be placed in Jesus and His finished work and nothing else.

Faith in our own self worth, our own effort and works, our own religious performance is useless.

If we are trusting in anything other than Jesus we are deluded.

The Roman soldier had great faith in his shield, faith that it would stop anything that the enemy could through at him.

As a child I was very impressed when I saw for the first time the way that Roman soldiers would make a covering with their shields (like a tortoise shell) and then march into, through and over an enemy.

Our faith in Jesus is our shield and our protection, and it can protect us from everything, from ALL the fiery darts of the wicked (Ephesians 6 v 16).

There is nothing that the finished work of Jesus cannot, and has not, overcome.

And through faith in Jesus and His finished work we are more than conquerors over ALL situations (Romans 8 v 37).

There is no sin that Jesus has not dealt with, no illness that Jesus did not take on His own body on the cross and no poverty that Jesus did not vanquish.

Faith in Jesus and His finished work will get you through any and ALL difficulties, problems and situations.

Put your faith, hope and trust in Jesus this morning.

Speak this out…..”Thank you Lord for the finished work of Jesus Christ, and thank you that through Him I am an overcomer”.

Ephesians 6 v 16…..Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked

DIG for Sunday the 2nd of August…..conquerors, overcomers and victorious; your identity in Christ…..Romans 8 v 37

In the message at MGF today I continued teaching on our true identity; that is who we are in Christ and through Christ.

The Word is full of encouraging truths about how we should live our lives here on earth through Him.

We are more than conquerors through Him (Romans 8 v 37).

We are victorious through Him (1 Corinthians 15 v 57).

We are overcomers through Him (1 John 4 v 4 and 1 John 5 v 4 and 5).

Through Him we can, and should, be winners in this life.

But we will only be winners if we are persuaded that we are conquerors, overcomers and victors and start behaving appropriately.

“As a man thinketh so is he” and “death and life are in the power of the tongue” are important spiritual laws we live under.

If we think like conquerors and speak like conquerors we will more than likely behave like conquerors.

But, if we think like losers and speak like losers we will definitely behave like losers.

Jesus came to destroy the works of the enemy, so that we could live lives of abundance, health and prosperity (John 10 v 10 and 3 John 2).

Even in difficult and hard times (we will suffer persecution) we need to think and speak like conquerors and winners.

We need to know that because of our position in Christ we are already coming from a state of victory.

We are already victorious because of what He has done.

Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord that as a gift of grace through faith in the finished work of Jesus Christ I am more than a conqueror and am an overcomer in this life”.

Romans 8 v 37…..Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us
