God's Got Your Hand
In life, it’s always a good thing if you go into a challenge with the upper hand or as some would say, a strong hand. The reason for this is that nobody likes to lose, and defeat is never a thing to be happy about.
Unfortunately, with every passing day, there are people facing disappointments and defeat in their lives. They are unhappy that their chances of ever achieving their dreams are fast fading away or that the people they depend on for support have disappointed them.
However, if you believe in God, your case has got to be different because He already planned a path of success and fulfilment for you the day you became born again.
According to Ephesians 2:10 (Amplified Version), God has predestined you to achieve great things and to live the good life. So, you must not expect anything less from life. If you believe that you are not getting a good deal in life, even though you’re born again, begin to demand better outcomes from life because you’ve got God’s backing.
Consider Isaiah 45:1-3 for a moment:
“This is what the Lord says to his anointed, to Cyrus, whose right hand I take hold of to subdue nations before him and to strip kings of their armor, to open doors before him so that gates will not be shut: I will go before you and will level the mountains; I will break down gates of bronze and cut through bars of iron. I will give you hidden treasures, riches stored in secret places, so that you may know that I am the Lord, the God of Israel, who summons you by name.” (Isaiah 45:1-3 NIV)
You can personalise the above scripture because you are the anointed of the Lord. God knows you will face challenges and opposition in your quest to achieve your life dreams so, He is strengthening you to fight the good fight of faith and to lay hold of all that is yours in Eternal life.
Press forward this week with courage, and the doors of opportunity will open up for you because the presence of God is with you. The Holy Spirit has got a hold of your hands, which means you have the upper hand on the issues of life.
Your future is secure!
