DECIDE YOUR FUTURE

“These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world”. John 16:33
Once upon a time, the Bible records that David took his army to fight on the side of the Philistines and before they came back the Amalekites had raided their entire camp, took away their wives, children and everything they had and it seemed all hope was lost. When David was in this situation the scripture says even his own turned against him, and he cried and cried until there was no more tears. There is nothing wrong in crying, it is not an act of faith when something happens and you say I won’t cry. You are a human being, don’t be ashamed of crying, even Jesus wept. It is not an act of faithlessness when you cry and it does not make you any less a man. When you have people you truly love and they misbehave or are greatly afflicted, you may cry like Jesus did for Lazarus, but issue is after the tears, what else? David cried and then he encouraged himself and got up. In other words spoke to himself. Child of God, I want to encourage you, despite today’s challenges never open your mouth to say what the devil is doing.
Don’t give him the credit for anything that is going on in your life, rather wake up every morning and create your environment. Bake your cake, put the candle sticks on them, put some music, blow your candle, dance your dance and eat your cake, drink your soada or your juice and if no one sent you a card, write one for yourself. Sing to yourself in psalms and hymns. When you wake up in the morning as your feet land on the ground declare: this is the day the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it.
Declare that the day answers to you. Declare that you will pursue,overtake and recover all today. Declare that the sun, moon and stars are working on your behalf. Declare that you will go out with joy and be led forth with peace. Decide what your day should be and it will yield to you
