If you’re a born-again believer, then you are never without God’s divine protection. That may be hard to believe, especially considering the devastation suffered by so many, including Christians, as a result of such things as natural disasters. But the Word of God plainly tells us that as children of Almighty God, we have a secure foundation.
Everything you need to be successful and live a prosperous life is available to you right now, today! That’s part of the abundant life Jesus said He came to give all who would believe on Him (John 10:10). But what if living such a life—having a prosperous and successful future—depended on what was in your past? Would there be anything back there to keep you from living an abundant tomorrow?
When we’re faced with difficult situations, sometimes it’s easy to forget who we are as believers, or what it means to be a child of God. That’s why David reminds us to always remember the benefits that belong to us because we received Jesus as our Lord and Savior.
Did you know when you live according to God’s Word, you position yourself to live a blessed life in which you never want for anything? Jesus was clear on that when He said in John 10:10 that His purpose for coming was that we, as believers, “can have real and eternal life, more and better life than they ever dreamed of” (The Message).
If you are a Christian, then you are filled with spiritual power. On the other hand, you of your own self have no power. That may sound like a contradiction, but let me explain. In Matthew 28:18-19, Jesus told His disciples, “All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.”
Let me ask you a question: What exactly is it that you want out of life? Whatever it is, wherever you are believing God to take you, you can get there. Proverbs 16:3 says, “Commit thy works unto the Lord, and thy thoughts shall be established.” When you commit your works unto God, when you put Him first in everything, He will work with you and see that your thoughts, your desires, are accomplished—according to His will for your life.
