l e t . y o u r . p r a y e r s . a l i g n . w i t h . H i s . p r o m i s e — n o t . w i t h . y o u r . p r o b l e m // we live every day lives in an every day world, with every day expectations and every day possibilities and every day facts. and every day we face situations with every day results. but how often do we accept the ‘normal’ result, the ‘standard’ result or the ‘expected result, simply because we have grown accustomed to praying in our problem, rather than praying promise over our problem. it’s easy to become swept away in a diagnosis, a final exam grade, a negative word, a broken relationship or a large disappointment, when it seems to be all you’re seeing, feeling and facing in life. it’s easy to make your decisions based on emotions, and say your prayers based on experience. but God is calling us to greater heights, to deeper truths, to more solid and firm groundings. He is calling us to raise our heads within our trials, and to fix our eyes on Him. because whilst we are far from perfection, His son is the very definition of that which we long for, desire and seek after. we are humans, and our natural response is to feel defeat, or to look at the negatives of situations more often than not, but He is calling us to look at a kingdom promise over a worldly problem — to always see the heavenly goal, before seeing the earthly situation. consider the eiffel tower, which was once a dream and vision, birthed in the heart of a man — had he have forever set his eyes on the fact that someday his dream may deteriorate and need restructuring and maintenance work on it, he may never have created an internationally loved, iconic structure that has impacted and altered the lives of many; and has been the birth place of thousands upon thousands of proposals and declarations of love; in the same way, when you and I focus on our potential problems, and pray in them, and for them, rather than speaking life into them, and praying promise over them — we defeat the faith we once had to build eiffel towers in our own lives. God is calling us to be relentless, persistent and passionate. to speak life and see defeat over satan. (1 john 3:8 / james 5)Instagram: @_jacintanest // @littlekinta

When was the last time you declared out loud “I can”? It’s not something people think to do every day. In fact, most people tend to magnify their limitations. They focus on their shortcomings. But scripture makes it plain: all things are possible to those who believe. That’s right! It is possible to see your dreams fulfilled. It is possible to overcome that obstacle. It is possible to climb to new heights. It is possible to embrace your destiny. You may not know how it will all take place. You may not have a plan, but all you have to know is that if God said that you can…you can!
Today, why don’t you begin to open yourself up to the possibility in your future by simply declaring this verse, “I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength?” At the stoplight, when you’re waiting in line, anytime you have a second, just quote this verse to yourself again. Let it sink down deeply into your heart. As you do, His word will transform you. Faith will rise up in your heart and will boldly embrace the blessings that He has in store for you!

However, greater injuries such as breaks or fractures or wounds that need stitches, are not so easily healed; they need to be tended to by a professional, someone who understands the nature of the injury, and how to heal it efficiently; sometimes it needs to be tended to regularly to assure it is healing properly; these wounds can often take time. too often we allow our wounds that need to be treated by a professional (Jesus) to remain open, raw and aching. preventing us from functioning properly within our present, and being able to step into our futures whole heartedly, because we are in a sense, disabled by the hurts we are choosing to cover over. often by refusing to acknowledge our past wounds, we build up the very infections satan desires us to; such as bitterness, resentment and anger, which spreads through the body; rendering it broken and unusable; and positioning us right where satan wants us. however, Christ is all about overcoming obstacles, rising above our circumstances, and not letting things get us down; and following Him is all about making stepping stones out of stumbling blocks. it’s about being healed in body and mind through faith, and becoming whole through His love, and becoming free from the bondage of bitterness and resentment through His Word and prayer. it’s about letting Jesus resolve and override problems carried over from the past by the renewing and transforming of our mind (Romans 12:2). your future is worth the acknowledgement and treatment of your brokenness; search your heart today (Lamentations 3:40); and let Jesus deal with the wounds of your past.Instagram: @_jacintanest // @littlekinta
