You Are ‘Righteous’ In God’s Eyes

’Unskilled in the word of righteousness.’ Hebrews 5:13 NKJV Paul writes, ‘Everyone who partakes only of milk is unskilled in the word of righteousness… he is a babe.’ Righteousness isn’t a condition you achieve through human effort, it’s a position God places you in when you trust in Christ. From then on, God wants you to see yourself as ‘righteous’, which is how He sees you.‘By the deeds of the law no flesh will be justified in His sight, for by the law is the knowledge of sin. But now the righteousness of God apart from the law is revealed… to all and on all who believe.’ (Romans 3:20–22 NKJV) If you’re struggling to be righteous to get into Heaven, read this: ‘He made Him who knew no...

How To Walk By Faith

‘Walk in the steps of the faith which our father Abraham had.’ Romans 4:12 NKJV The Bible talks about those ‘who also walk in the steps of the faith which our father Abraham had.’ How do you walk like that? (1) Abraham believed ‘God, who gives life to the dead and calls those things which do not exist as though they did.’ (Romans 4:17 NKJV) When God makes you a promise, He has the power to bring it to pass, even when all the evidence and surrounding circumstances run contrary to what He said. (2) ‘Who, contrary to hope, in hope believed… [and] he became the father of many nations.’ (Romans 4:18 NKJV) When all reason for hope was gone, Abraham still hoped. Why? Because his hope was in God!...

The Truth About Money

‘Do not overwork to be rich.’ Proverbs 23:4 NKJV Having more money can give you more opportunities to do good in the world. Jesus said, ‘This Gospel of the Kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.’ (Matthew 24:14 NIV) And fulfilling that Commission will require money—lots of it. But money by itself will never make you happy or secure. Solomon, one of the world’s richest men, writes: ‘Do not overwork to be rich; because of your own understanding, cease! Will you set your eyes on that which is not? For riches certainly make themselves wings; they fly away like an eagle towards Heaven.’ (Proverbs 23:4–5 NKJV) When one of the...

How To Fight—And Win

‘Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, to which you were also called.’ 1 Timothy 6:12 NKJV Here are six proven Bible strategies for defeating the enemy when he comes against you. (1) Think boldly. ‘Fight the good fight of faith… to which you were also called.’ Plan and calculate like a general preparing for battle; study how to engage and defeat your enemy the devil. (2) Pray boldly. We are told to approach God’s throne ‘boldly’ (see Hebrews 4:16). Don’t be bashful with God. He’s your ‘Abba’, which means ‘Daddy’. And you’re His redeemed child, so approach Him with confidence and ask for what you need. (3) Speak fearlessly. The apostle Peter writes, ‘Speak as though God...

Be Resilient (2)

‘In all these things we are more than conquerors.’ Romans 8:37 NKJV If you conclude that your best days are over—they are. If you think they’re ahead—they are. After losing his job with a Fortune 500 company, Leonard was fearful and depressed. Then it occurred to him that if he gave up, what would he be teaching his son? If he didn’t overcome his challenges, his son would learn to let his challenges beat him. Leonard was determined to show him that although his dad got knocked down, he could get back up. So he dug out his CV and called his friends to tell them he needed a job. Several months and many interviews later, he had four job offers, and now works for a company that values his...

Be Resilient (1)

‘We may be knocked down but we are never knocked out!’ 2 Corinthians 4:9 PHPS Like trees that bend in the wind, resilient people gain strength from adversity because they know how to do these five things: (1) Stay connected. Solomon said, ‘Two are better than one… If either of them falls down, one can help the other up.’ (Ecclesiastes 4:9–10 NIV) When Barbara Smith’s son was killed, she started a bereavement group to unite others. ‘We’ve saved each other,’ she says. (2) Monitor their self-talk. Watch how you ‘spin’ your situation. Catch yourself speaking negatively and reframe it in light of Scripture. God’s Word says, ‘What you say can mean life or death.’ (Proverbs 18:21 NCV) Instead of...

God Wants You To Succeed (4)

‘For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.’ Joshua 1:8 NKJV In Scripture the word ‘success’ simply means knowing and doing God’s will for your life. It’s that simple! For Joshua, success meant entering the Promised Land, conquering it, living there, and enjoying all its blessings every day. Listen to what God told him: ‘Only be strong and very courageous, that you may observe to do according to all the law which Moses My servant commanded you; do not turn from it to the right hand or to the left, that you may prosper wherever you go. This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe...

God Wants You To Succeed (3)

‘You made them rulers over the works of Your hands; You put everything under their feet.’ Psalm 8:6 NIV How can you know God wants you to succeed in life? Three reasons: (1) Because He created you. In Genesis God said, ‘Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness.’ (Genesis 1:26 NKJV) The words ‘image’ and ‘likeness’ are important. Think about it: we sometimes tell a child, ‘You’re the image of your mother/father. You’re just like her/him!’ Because you are God’s supreme creation, He poured into you His mind, His power, His wisdom, and everything else you need to succeed. Once you grasp the truth of that and begin to act on it, your outlook will be transformed. You will start...

God Wants You To Succeed (2)

‘I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.’ 3 John 1:2 NKJV Jesus said, ‘What will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul?’ (Mark 8:36 NKJV) And to drive home His point, He told the story of a rich man who died and went to hell, while a poor man on his doorstep went to Heaven. Bottom line: nothing is more important than your salvation! But God also has a plan for your life, and He wants you to succeed. John writes, ‘I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.’ Note the phrase ‘in all things’. That includes your health, your mental and emotional well-being, your family and...

God Wants You To Succeed (1)

‘All these things shall be added to you.’ Matthew 6:33 NKJV Some people think that God’s sole purpose is to save their soul, help them become as morally upright and as spiritually mature as possible, and one day take them to Heaven to live with Him. And in a sense that’s true. But here’s what isn’t true—that God is not interested in your job, your health, your relationships, your finances, or your dreams and goals because somehow those things are carnal, worldly, and temporal. When you think like that, you ‘spiritualise’ every promise you read in Scripture, and when you pray, you believe the only thing God wants to do is help you become more spiritual. Let’s look into the Scriptures and...
