Daily Spirit & Word; 648:
Has Jesus Promised More Than He Can Deliver?
Good morning my friends, I want to encourage the Saints in Christ today, those who have surrendered their lives to Him as LORD and Saviour. Why? Well it’s because sometimes, there are brothers and sisters in Christ who seem to be a bit down. They seem to want or need something more, but with shoulders down and arms drooping, they walk in and out of ‘church’ not getting what it is they need. And I’m feeling so sad, because I know there’s POWER waiting for them, if they’ll just tap into it. It’s as if they’re living with this feeling or question, “Has my Lord Jesus promised more than He can deliver for me?”
“Has my Lord Jesus promised more than He can deliver for me?”
- Perhaps, you came to Jesus expecting life to be a bed of roses.
- Perhaps it’s because you thought you would always feel powerful and strong in the Spirit.
- Perhaps it’s because you expected to never have to suffer or go without the good things in life.
Whatever the let-down is, you NEED encouragement today; because Jesus can deliver all things in abundance. His promises are always TRUE and can be found to be true for every truly converted believer.
Jesus Christ CAN and WILL sustain you in everything. Believe it again, believe it afresh today.
Did you get to the verse in your Bible that promises; “I can do ALL THINGS through Christ who strengthens me”… If, like me, you make notes of powerful Bible verses at the front and rear of your Bible, then turning to these often will give encouragement. Especially when you find them to be true when you live them.
Philippians 4:11-13 (NLT) The Secret Strength For Contentment.
11 Not that I was ever in need, for I have learned how to be content with whatever I have.
12 I know how to live on almost nothing or with everything. I have learned the secret of living in every situation, whether it is with a full stomach or empty, with plenty or little.
13 For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength.
It’s NOT a Secret my friends. Jesus has revealed it in the experience of the Apostle Paul and countless thousands of other followers of Jesus; we can FACE ANYTHING when we get the strength for our weakness through Jesus Christ.
- If you have ANY need in your life today; come afresh to Jesus Christ.
- If you have SOMETHING you need help with today, come to Jesus Christ first.
- If you want a SITUATION SORTED, then come to Jesus, because He wants to give you His strength.
Avail yourself of the POWER that’s available today: You won’t just be contented, but overflowing.
If you are feeling downcast, disheartened, discouraged today; then bring it to Jesus.
He’ll lift up your soul. He’ll fill you afresh with Holy Spirit. He’ll give you the NEW WINE of the Kingdom. It will be like a fountain within, you will not be able to turn it off. Joy overflowing from within. Do you want that? Come to Jesus NOW in prayer and be strengthened and encouraged.
Has Jesus promised more than He can deliver? No my friends, but there’s more, much more than you can ever imagine stored up for you, tap into the power source of the Universe, come to the Lord Jesus Christ and you’ll see.
PRAYER: Dear Lord Jesus, forgive me for those times that I’ve doubted You. I come to you now and trust You afresh in everything. I know Lord that I can do ALL THINGS in the power and strength that You provide through Holy Spirit living in me”. Amen.
Determine in your hearts today; “I’m going to share with Jesus all my desires and longings today.” Amen.
Every blessing in Jesus for a wonderful week,
