29 For by thee I have run through a troop; and by my God have I leaped over a wall.
33 Who through faith subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions.
34 Quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, waxed valiant in fight, turned to flight the armies of the aliens.
35 Women received their dead raised to life again: and others were tortured, not accepting deliverance; that they might obtain a better resurrection:
As a child of God, you have the capacity to do great things for God. Apostle Paul speaking in Philippians 4:13 says “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.” Understand that you are not ordinary, you are supernatural; you are the image of God, you are His likeness (Genesis 1:26-27). The ability of God is at work in you because Christ is in you. The Person of the power of God, the Holy Spirit, is resident within you. You are not ordinary. When you came into Christ, you became a new creation, old things of the past, of failure, lack and defeat passed away and all things have become new. You are now entirely brand new, and your experiences ought to reflect your new status. You are not the ‘once upon a time’ defeated person anymore. You are born a victor, born after the order of Christ, who is our perfect example. Jesus Christ broke every natural limit on His way to the cross of Calvary and fulfilled His destiny in grand style. This is the template you ought to follow as a believer. Nothing must hinder your progress; no situation or circumstance should weigh you down. Refuse to embrace impossibilities, don’t utter statements like “I can’t do this, or I can’t achieve that”. You are of faith; therefore, you cannot be limited. Stand up and declare like Paul did “I can do all things through Christ that strengthens me”.
The Psalmist in our opening Scripture said, by God, he has run through a troop and leaped over a wall. This same God is the same yesterday, today and forever; He is the strength of your life! God’s ability at work in you is sufficient to help you break old records and set new ones. Records which can only be broken by another person who carries the same eternal life as you. No matter who is playing on the field in your area of specialization, you can meet up and surpass them, by God. Be bold to declare “by my God, I surmount challenges, I break records and set new ones; by Him, I become a global force to be reckoned with.” Believe it! Refuse to settle for anything less than excellence; don’t settle for anything less than the best that God has for you. Make up your mind to do great things for God in your generation. Expand the scope of your vision. The Word declares, “Enlarge the place of thy tent, and let them stretch forth the curtains of thine habitations: spare not, lengthen thy cords, and strengthen thy stakes; For thou shalt break forth on the right hand and on the left; and thy seed shall inherit the Gentiles, and make the desolate cities to be inhabited” (Isaiah 54:2-3). Dream big and have a desire to cause a godly change in your generation. You were born for such a time as this, to make a difference and be the best your world has ever seen or known. What are you waiting for? Arise and shine!
My Solid Front (Confession):
In the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, I declare that I am more than a conqueror through Christ who loved me. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me!
Isaiah 60:1-3; 2 Samuel 22:20.
