Even in these confusing and frightening times, God wants you to lead an abundant life. Peace and joy and the other fruits of the Spirit are given to you to draw on all the time. When you work on developing fruit in the good times, you have a reserve for difficult times. Mature Christians know how to draw on the peace that can only come from the Prince of Peace who lives inside them.
As a child of God, you need to know how to be steady and stable no matter what the circumstances. Allow His peace to guard your heart and mind so you are prepared to handle times of crisis when they come.
2 Corinthians 7:10
Regret is running the lives of countless people by stealing their joy. Certainly, you have things you wish you had done differently. But there is no sense becoming burdened with regret over something you have no power to change. You need to understand this is the way the devil works. God will warn you so you can change your mind before you make a mistake, Satan waits until it is too late, when you can no longer do anything about it, and then tries to heap regret and condemnation upon you.
Do not allow Satan to steal from you any longer. Ask God for forgiveness, if you have not already, and leave your regrets in the past.
The Right Words
Genesis 17:5, 15,-16
God gave Abram and Sarah new names that carried significant meaning. Each time their names were called, the future was prophesied: Abraham would be father of a multitude and his princess, Sarah, would be a mother of nations and kings.
Now the right things were spoken over Abram and Sarah. Words proclaimed in the natural realm reached into the realm of the spirit where their miracle was. Those words came into agreement with God’s Word and called for the miracle God had promised.
Words are containers for power. Carefully watch over your words and walk through life with abundant joy!
