“Look for the gifts in everything, especially when you are facing what appears to be a negative situation. Everything that we attract causes us to grow, which means that ultimately everything is for our own good.”
– Rhonda Bryne.
Live life always being thankful to GOD for every situation, with an attitude of gratitude.
Friend, are there battles you have been fighting since the year began? God says, every battle against you will end in praise, and it shall end in your favour.
You will defeat every adversary against you; you will defeat every wicked man who is standing in your way; you will take victory over every challenge that comes your way.
Don’t be scared when your battles become fierce and intense; God says, they won’t consume you.
You will live to tell the story of how you defeated the enemies of your destiny; you will live to tell your victory story and sing your victory song; those who are against you will be disappointed when the battles are over.
Moses stood in the gap on behalf of the army of Israel, and they won the battle. The fact that God was on the side of Israel was enough to guarantee victory.
Because God is on your side, you will win every battle you face. Even if those against you are more than those on your side, you will still win because God is on your side.
Look beyond your battles and see the victory that is on the way.
The battles you face won’t reduce you; God says, they will end in praise, and they will end in your favour.
Pray With Me: Lord, all my battles will end in praise, and they will end in my favour, in Jesus’ name!
Have a blessed day!

Within an unfavourable environment, God created a favourable atmosphere for Elijah; within the environment where things went wrong, God caused things to be fine for Elijah; in the place where others had no provision, God provided for Elijah. Things were not fine in Israel, but God made Elijah’s case different.
Friend, within the same environment that is unfavourable, God will create a favourable atmosphere for you. In the same places where others were rejected, God will cause you to be accepted; in the same places where people are insecure, God will secure you; in the same places where people are hopeless, God will arise on your behalf; in the places where others receive bad news, you shall have good news. Things may go wrong for others, but God will make things right for you.
Your destiny does not depend on what is happening around you; your destiny is not defined or determined by what is happening in your nation. Your destiny is a function of God’s word concerning you; your destiny is all about what God is able to do for you.
Look beyond men and focus on God. If God is on your side, things will turn out differently. If God is on your side, what affects others will not affect you.
Job 22 vs. 29 captures it aptly: “When men are cast down, then thou shalt say, There is lifting up; and he shall save the humble person.”
Pray With Me: Lord, what affects others will not affect me; my case is different, in Jesus’ name!

A young man was getting ready to graduate from college. For many months he had admired a beautiful sports car in a dealers showroom,
and knowing his father could well afford it, he told him that was all he wanted.
As Graduation Day approached, the young man awaited signs that his
father had purchased the car. Finally, on the morning of his
graduation, his father called him into his private study, told him how proud he was to have such a fine son, and how much he loved him. He handed him a beautifully wrapped gift box.
Curious, but somewhat disappointed, the young man opened the box and
found a lovely, leather-bound Bible, with his name embossed
Angrily, he raised his voice to his father and said,”With all your money you give me a Bible?” He stormed out of the house, leaving the Bible behind.
Many years passed and the young man was very successful in business. He had a beautiful home and wonderful family, but realized his father was very old. He thought perhaps he should go to him.He had not seen him since that graduation day.
But before he could make arrangements, he received a telegram telling him his father had passed away, and willed all of his possessions to
him. He needed to come home immediately and take care of things.
When he arrived at his father’s house, sadness and regret filled his heart. He began to search through his father’s important documents
and saw the Bible, new,just as he had left it years ago.
With tears, he opened the Bible and began to turn the pages. His father had
carefully underlined a verse, Matt 7:11,
“And if ye, being evil, know
how to give good gifts to your children, how much more shall your Heavenly Father which is in Heaven, give to those who ask Him?”
As he read those words, a car key dropped from the back of the Bible.It had a tag with the dealers name, the same dealer who had the sports car he had desired.
On the tag was the date of his graduation, and the words…
PAID IN FULL.
How many times do we miss God’s blessings because they are not packaged as we expected?
