Have you ever noticed that when you ask someone “Who are you?” a lot of times they’ll say, “I’m a salesman.” “I’m a minister.” “I’m a coach.” “I’m a teacher.” Many people find their identity in what they do.

The problem with this kind of thinking is that people identify themselves with their negative habits and strongholds, too. I hear people say, “I’m an alcoholic; I just can’t beat it.” No, that’s not who you are, that’s what you do.

But if you keep thinking that way and talking that way, it will become so ingrained on the inside that you’ll convince yourself that it’s true, and it will keep you from rising higher. There was a drug dealer who was embarrassed by his work.

He didn’t want to live that way.  Servant of God told him what I’m telling you, “That’s not who you are. If you’ve accepted Yeshua as your Lord and Saviour, then who you are is a child of the Most High God.

It’s time to start acting like it because you have a destiny to fulfil.” As a believer, you are the righteousness of God in Messiah! You are the head and not the tail! You are an overcomer! Today, embrace who you are in Messiah and don’t ever let your performance change your identity.

A Prayer for Today

“Father God, thank You for who You are and for who You’ve made me. I declare today that I am the righteousness of God in Messiah.

Help me to keep my identity in You and glorify You in all that I do in Yeshua the Messiah name Amen.

Are you facing something today that seems impossible? With man it may be, but with God, ALL things are possible. If you seem to be in an impossible situation, get “with God!”

Sometimes it’s so easy to focus on our problems and try to solve them in our own strength. But remember, the battle belongs to the Lord. He has a plan for your victory.

He has a plan to give you a way out. He is making the things that seem impossible, possible. You can trust Him today. The Bible says that He has plans for your good, not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.

Start believing and confessing today, “I am with God, and with God all things are possible!” Are your bills piling up? With God, all things are possible. Do your relationships need healing? With God, all things are possible. Is there sickness in your body?

With God, all things are possible! As you meditate on God’s Word, His power is activated in your life. He will strengthen you and lead you forward into that place of victory He has in store for you.

A Prayer for Today

“Heavenly Father, thank You for making a way where there seems to be no way. I choose to trust You, and I believe that all things are possible!

Show me Your power today. Work through me to encourage those around me to trust You more in Yeshua the Messiah name. Amen.

In Yeshua, everything is complete! There is nothing but fullness in His presence; fullness of joy and eternal pleasures. He is all set to grant you these. To enjoy God’s fullness of Joy, you should choose “life” in Messiah – a life of living righteously.   Choose life over death.

Let’s see Genesis, the beginning. Genesis 1:27 says “God created man in his own image”. Ezekiel talks about God being made of fire and was like molten metal till His waist. We see a tremendous light shining around Him (Ezekiel 1:27).

According to John 4:24, God is Spirit. Yet He has a form. Yeshua gave His life for every one of us (Hebrews 2:14,15). The blood of Yeshua the Messiah cleanses us from all sin (1 John 1:7,9).

Today we have a hope in Yeshua. Just ask Yeshua to wash us with His blood. Give up our wicked ways. Don’t hide behind the lust of the flesh. Open our heart for Yeshua.

He shall wash and transform us. And we shall experience the joy of God’s presence in this world. Let us turn to Yeshua today.

A Prayer for Today

Dear Lord, I come before Your presence.  I acknowledge that I have sinned against you.  Now, I come with a repentant heart.  I want to be delivered from the bondage of sin.

Lord Yeshua, cleanse me by Your blood so that I shall be glad and enjoy the eternal pleasures in this world and in the world to come. Bless my family and make us prosperous.  I thank You for receiving me and filling me with peace and joy.  In Your mighty name I pray, Amen.

In our day to day life, there might be circumstances like hurricane which may cause us to fear and to tremble. At those helpless moments, remember that there is a mighty God who can surpass every limitation and save you from perils. He will say, “Peace! Be still” (Mark4:39) and calm your situation to make you shine in this world!

According to the promise “I, the Lord, have called you in righteousness; I will take hold of your hand.  I will keep you and will make you to be a covenant for the people and a light for the Gentiles, to open eyes that are blind, to free captives from prison and to release from the dungeon those who sit in darkness” (Isaiah 42:6,7).

The Lord will hold your hand also to fulfil your destiny in life.  So, do not worry.  You will live and shine as light in this world for His glory! Not a single word that He promised to you would ever fall on ground.  The faithful and unfailing God would help you for sure. 

A Prayer for Today

Loving Heavenly Father, I come to You in the name of Yeshua. I know that You love me so much and You will not let me go. I thank You for that. Lord, anoint me to accomplish Your will on earth.

At all situations help me to praise You wholeheartedly, because according to Hebrews 13:15 “Through Yeshua, therefore, let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise–the fruit of lips that openly profess his name” offering the sacrifice of praise to You is Your will. I pray this prayer in the matchless name of our Lord and Saviour Yeshua the Messiah, Amen.

Isn’t it interesting how easy it is to put things off? We plan on doing something. We have good intentions. We just plan to do it later. “One day I’m going to start exercising. One day I’m going to get my finances in order. One day I’m going to forgive that person who hurt me.”

The problem with this kind of thinking is that “one day” never comes. There will always be some reason to keep delaying it. Is there something in your heart that you know you need to do?

Maybe God has been dealing with you, and you keep putting it off. You think, “As soon as I get through this busy season, I’ll spend more time with my family. As soon as I get a pay raise, I’ll start tithing my income.

As soon as my child gets out of diapers, I’m going to get my family back in church.” But friend, good intentions don’t equal obedience. The quicker you do what you feel down in your spirit, the happier you’re going to be.

Don’t let unfinished business keep you from God’s best. Step out. Obey His voice and walk in the blessing He has for you!

A Prayer for Today

“Father, thank You for Your patience and grace toward me. Search my heart. Show me the way to go. I choose to obey Your voice quickly and honour You in all that I do in Yeshua the Messiah’s name. Amen.

God longs to pour out His favour and blessing on you. He longs to show you His goodness and provision. He promises to do His part, but you have to do your part. You have to be diligent.

First of all, be diligent in seeking His ways and following His commands. Then, be diligent with what you have in your hand, with your time and resources. In Matthew 25, Jesus tells a parable about three men whose employer entrusted them with some money called talents.

Two of the men were diligent and invested the talents and received a great return. The third man was afraid and buried what he was given. The first two men were rewarded and praised for their diligence while the third man was rebuked.

Follow the example of the first two men and look for ways to be diligent with what you have in your hand. Whatever you do, do it with excellence. Be the best you can be and go the extra mile even when you think it goes unnoticed. Understand that when people don’t notice, God notices and promises to reward the appetite of the diligent.

A Prayer for Today

“Heavenly Father, thank You for Your favour and blessing on my life. Today I choose to be diligent. I choose to live in excellence and do everything to the best of my ability. I give You all the glory in Yeshua the Messiah’s name. Amen.

Throughout the Bible, we have examples of how God suddenly showed Himself strong on behalf of His people. But sometimes when we’ve struggled in an area for a long time, it’s easy to just give up and accept things the way they are.

One of the enemy’s favourite lies is to tell you that nothing is ever going to change. He’ll tell you that you’re never going to get well, that your marriage isn’t going to work out, that you’re never going to break that addiction.

But it doesn’t matter how long you’ve been in those circumstances; God can change things in an instant! In a split second of time, He can turn it all around. One touch of God’s power can heal your body.

One touch of His favour can promote you. One touch of His goodness can solve that problem. Just one touch from Almighty God can instantly change your life.

I encourage you today, keep believing, keep standing, and keep hoping. Don’t let the enemy drag your thoughts down because God is working behind the scenes. Your time is coming, and I declare that your breakthrough is going to happen suddenly—in an instant!

A Prayer for Today

“Father in heaven, I choose to trust that You are working things out for my good. I choose to stand in faith, believing that my season of breakthrough is coming.

Give me Your strength and peace as I patiently wait on You in Yeshua the Messiah’s name. Amen.

Our words have the power to pollute or purify. If we constantly complain, we release poison into our life. Complaining is not based on our circumstances, it’s based on the attitude of our heart.

If we keep the right attitude during our time of adversity, God will honour us. When we truly trust God, there are times we will have unanswered questions—don’t let that keep us from fulfilling our destiny.

When we have a heart full of gratitude, it leaves no room for complaining. We can always find something to thank God for no matter what kind of adversity we may face in life.

So, decide today to live a life of thanksgiving! Don’t allow the poison of complaining prevent us from receiving all God has for us!

A Prayer for Today

“God, I believe in the power of the spoken word. When I am tempted to complain or speak negative words today, I will listen to that quiet voice inside me that tells me to hold them back.

I will spend a quiet minute meditating on what I have to be thankful for and adjust my attitude so my words today reflect my joy. In Yeshua the Messiah’s name – Amen.

Anybody gets distressed at closed doors because it slams too hard on a step towards their future dreams and wishes – a closed door on your job, a shut womb, a latched portal on your marriage, a sealed door that has terminated your ministry anointing from flowing further, a relationship that has put a lid on never to be removed. 

Have you ever faced any such doors that are sealed over a long period? The doors could have closed.  But, how do you choose to respond to it?

Paul and Silas, the great apostles of God, were arrested, beaten and their feet were fastened in the stocks for preaching the word of God. Did they regret their ministry and blame God for this suffering?

No! They began to pray and sing hymns to God with all their heart, mind, soul and strength. The God Almighty, enthroned in the praises, descended on them (Psalm 22:3). He smelled their praises and thanks as sweet and pleasant aroma. He loosened their fetters and set them free.

The foundations of the prison were shaken and all the doors were opened automatically. Because of this occurrence, the keeper of the prison and his household accepted the Lord Jesus as their personal Saviour in that same night and they were blessed by Him (Acts 16:23-34).

When God opens a door, no one can shut it! Beloved, did you see how Paul and Silas responded to their shut doors? They praised the Almighty God with all their heart.  Today, choose to praise Him. 

He is more than worthy to be praised.  Start giving thanks for all of His goodness in your life and praise would flow freely from your heart.  Praise is such a powerful weapon against all negative emotions and thoughts. 

It will break all the strongholds of the enemy in your life.  Lyell Rader says: “If you can’t pray a door open, do not pry it open.”  Yes, it means do not use the strength of your flesh and the knowledge to open a door. 

Just believe in His goodness and keep praying and praising. Every shut door would fling open automatically before you. The Bible says, “Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you” (Luke 11:9).  Yes, at the end you would see the promise, “See, I have placed before you an open door that no one can shut” (Revelation 3:8) beautifully shining before you!

A Prayer for Today

Loving Father, all these years I have used my physical strength, my wisdom and my efforts to open the shut door before me.  Today, I surrender that they all have turned out to be futile. As Your word says, I commit myself to praise you at all times. 

Fill me with songs of praise and worship.  Let my unbelief, doubt and fear vanish as I keep praising Your great name.  As You did for Paul and Silas, let the shut doors open before me.  May Your name alone be glorified through this.  In Yeshua the Messiah’s name I pray, Amen.

In Scripture a man came to Yeshua and said, “My little daughter is very sick. She is close to death. Will You come to my home and pray for her?”

Yeshua agreed. But along the way, He kept getting stopped, one interruption after another. Finally, word came back to Him saying, “No need to come. You’ve waited too late. The little girl has died.” The people were upset and very distraught.

But Yeshua said to them, “Don’t be afraid. If you will only believe, the little girl will be well.” Notice the phrase, “Only believe.” This was Jesus’ promise to the father. Yeshua went to the home, laid hands on the little girl, and she came back to life.

One of the greatest abilities God has given each of us is our ability to believe. Are you facing a situation that seems impossible?

In the natural, you don’t see how you can get well, or how you can overcome the addiction, or how your family can ever be restored?

God is saying to you what He said to them, “If you will only believe, I will turn the situation around. If you only believe, breakthroughs are headed your way!”

A Prayer for Today

“Father, thank You for Your hand of victory upon my life. Thank You for making a way even when there seems to be no way.

I choose to stand in faith. I choose to believe, knowing that You are ready, willing and able to cause me to overcome in this life in Yeshua the Messiah’s name. Amen.
