I got this message today in my email from JosephPrinceMinistries and I am sharing it with you all. Hope you are blessed by it.
...how much more will those who receive God's abundant provision of grace and of the gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man, Jesus Christ.
(Romans 5:17, NIV)
-- Today, I want you to know that you don't have to live another day feeling insignificant or unimportant.
-- Nor do you have to spend another day striving for success, praise or approval.
-- God's abundant and unmerited favor is surrounding you today because of the finished work of Jesus Christ!
-- Knowing and receiving God's unmerited favor are so important to experiencing the victorious and abundant life you have in Christ. That's why, this summer we are declaring 100 Days Of Favor over your life.
-- For these 100 days, not only do I want you to fully realize that God's abundant favor is yours today, I also want you to be thoroughly immersed and saturated in that same favor—in fact, not just for 100 days, but for the rest of your life!
-- And the way to experience God's unmerited favor every single day is to believe that it's already yours—without you doing ANYTHING to deserve it.
-- So many people fall into the trap of chasing favor or trying to earn it, which ultimately leads nowhere and only produces heartache, frustration and disappointment.
-- My dearest friend, this is not God's way. God wants you to focus on Jesus and His love for you, shown through what He did for you on the cross. Why? Because that is the only thing that is unchanging, sure, secure and eternal. It goes beyond the fickle nature and uncertainty of the world. And it will do for you what your self-effort cannot.
-- His love and His favor on you are what God wants you to stay focused on.
-- The Bible tells us in Romans 5:17 (NIV) ...how much more will those who receive God's abundant provision of grace and of the gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man, Jesus Christ.
-- Beloved, through Jesus' finished work at the cross, you've received His abundant provision of His grace and His free gift of righteousness to walk in an intimate and loving relationship with God, receiving His favor everywhere you go. That is how you reign in every area of your life!
-- Today, you can know with full assurance in your heart that Jesus loves you perfectly. He knows all your flaws and all your mistakes, yet He accepts you unconditionally and loves you perfectly.
-- When you begin to understand this, you will realize that it is truly unmerited favor from Jesus that you know you do not deserve, did not merit and cannot earn for yourself that will perfect every imperfection and weakness in your life.
-- Beloved, let's continue to turn away from our efforts and attempts to fix our external circumstances. I know that when you look only to Jesus, you will live in an abundance of His blessings and unmerited favor.
** Living in the free-flowing favor of God, **
For the next 100 Days, I want you to expect, to earnestly look for the favor of God like never before.
