Devotion For January 30

You Are Abraham’s Seed And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs accor4ding to the promise. Galatians 3:29 NKJV The Biblical term “Abraham’s seed” refers in both the Old and New Testaments to those who have received righteousness (right standing before God) by faith. When we receive righteousness by faith in Jesus Christ, we are called Abraham’s seed. God made many promises to Abraham’s seed, and He established an inheritance for each and every one. This inheritance becomes available to each and every individual the moment he or she receives righteousness by faith. To find out what belongs to you, read Deuteronomy 28: 1-14. You’ll see that God promised you’ll be blessed coming in and blessed going out. You’ll be blessed in the city and blessed in the filed. You’ll be blessed in everything you set your hand to do. God said He would make you the head and not the tail, above and not beneath. He declared that when your enemy comes in one way, God will cause him to flee seven ways! God loves you and wants you to enjoy the inheritance He has prepared for you. Determine today to study God’s Word and discover all the promises that are yours. And then, make the decision to reeve all that is yours, giving glory to God. Confession: Thank you, Father, for loving me enough to leave me a wonderful inheritance through my faith in Jesus, who made me righteous. As Abraham’s seed, I know I am a rightful heir to this inheritance, and I determine to discover and receive all that you have...

Fight For What Is Yours And the devil said to Him, “If you are the Son of God, command this stone to become bread.” But Jesus answered him, saying, “It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every Word of God. Luke 4:3-4 NKJV. What bread is for your body, God’s Word is for your spirit. It is through His Word that you came to know who you are in Christ Jesus. Once this becomes revelation to you, no one can ever take it away. When you know who you are in Christ, your days of weakness and defeat are over. The devil will always try to challenge the revelation of who you are, just as he tried with Jesus. But, just as Jesus did, you can boldly declare to the devil, “It is written!” He cannot steal from you any longer. Tell him, “You’ve defeated me for the last time. I’m entitled to be blessed. I’m entitled to health. I’m entitled to prosperity. You’re not stealing from me any longer!” Although the devil seems to be a powerful opponent, he is a defeated foe. Jesus has already defeated him. He has been stripped of his stolen authority and power. You, however, are a world overcomer. You are no longer a loser; you are more than a conqueror in Christ Jesus. All you have to do is shake your Bible at the devil and declare, “It is written, I am more than a conqueror in Jesus name!” Confession: I know who I am in Christ. I am a new creation. I am the righteousness of...

Enemy Tactics The Lord said to Moses, “Come now, therefore, and I will send you to Pharaoh that you may bring My people, the children of Israel, out of Egypt.” But Moses said to God, “Who am I?” Exodus 3:10-11 NKJV One of the major tactics of the enemy is to keep you from finding out who you are in Christ. As long as you think you are something that you’re not, the devil can keep you in bondage. As soon as you get a revelation of who you really are, your days of weakness and defeat will end–and the devil knows it. When you were born again, God made you a champion, more than a conqueror in Christ. You were completely recreated and you instantly became a new creation, complete with the ability to win in every situation or circumstance. It doesn’t matter what you’ve done or how insignificant and ineffective you once were; God is the master of making champions out of nobodies. That’s what He did with Moses. Moses didn’t initially see himself as God saw him, as the deliverer of God’s people. In fact, Moses angered the Lord when he asked Him to send someone else. Moses’ refusal to see himself as God saw him created a big problem. God had to include Aaron in the leadership team, which caused trouble later on. However, when Moses began to see himself as who God had really made him to be, he took his place in God’s plan and excelled as a great leader of God’s people. Don’t let the enemy’s tactics keep you in bondage one...

Free From Fear The Lord is my light and my salvation, whom shall I fear? Psalms 27:1. There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts our fear. 1 John 4:18 NKJV. There are no circumstances under which you can afford to allow fear into your mind or heart. If given entrance, fear will neutralize your faith and open the door for the devil to work in you life. Interestingly, there is a spiritual correlation between faith and fear. Just as faith activates God, so fear also activates the devil. Faith is the substance of things hoped for; fear is the substance of things dreaded. Faith is the spiritual force that works for you; fear is the spiritual force that works against you. Fear is never to be tolerated; it is to be cast out by the perfect love of God. Meditating on the love God has for you is the most effective way to put a stop to fear=filled thoughts. Read what God’s Word has to say about His love you; believe and have faith in His Word. He is your loving heavenly Father. All of His plans and intentions for you are for good and for blessing. Fear of failure is a common tool the devil uses to stop us from fulfilling the call of God in our lives. But know this: a God of love would never ask you to do something without first giving you the ability and resources to succeed. However, the fear of failure will activate the devil and cut you off from the resources that God has for you. It is...

Devotion For January 23

Always Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place. 2 Corinthians 2:14 NKJV Did you know that victory is always yours — that it actually belongs to you? The key word in the scripture above is always. The knowledge that God always causes us to triumph gets rid of the “win a few, lose a few” philosophy people are so fond of. I’ve had people say, “But, brother Jerry, I haven’t always triumphed.” My answer is always the same: “Well, we know that’s not God’s fault because the Bible says God always leads us in triumph. What some fail to realize is this: just because the Word says God always leads us to triumph in Christ, it doesn’t mean we will never be attacked or have adversity. It is what we do during the attack that determines whether we win or lose. I made up my mind years ago that I would never accept failure. Since that time, I’ve experienced setbacks and I’ve faced many opportunities to fail. But I’ve learned that the battle is never over until God has an opportunity to turn what seems to be a defeat into a triumph. No matter what kind of persecution, adversity, or attack you may be under, according to God’s Word the victory is already yours. You can get discouraged and choose to give up before it comes, but I am totally convinced that God already has a victory planned for you. You have the potential to experience triumph in every situation —...

Act Fearlessly Fear is a spiritual force. It is one of Satan’s greatest tools to get an open door into your life. It could manifest through the fear of not being good enough, the fear of lack, the fear of rejection, the fear of failure. Satan will try to intimidate you through words, actions or external signs. But none of those things can become a reality or come into manifestation until you act upon them Negative or fearful thoughts may come into you mind, but you can refuse to meditate on them and chose to immediately reject them. Circumstances may appear discouraging, but you can refuse to let go of your confidence and faith in what you know about God and His Word. If you respond in fear and act on intimidation, those fears can become a reality in your life. Fear will bring things to pass just as faith will. Job said, “The thing which I greatly feared has come upon me”. (Job 3:25) The devil can not do anything that he wants to do anytime that he gets ready to do it, if he could, why would he have to deceive you first? Satan is limited when he can’t get you to act on his threats through fear. 1 John 4:18 NIV tells, “There is no fear in live. But perfect love drives out fear…”. And we know from 1 John 4:8 that God is love. Run to God, spend time with Him, act on His Word and fear will have no place in you. Take courageous steps of faith and you will see God move in...

Spiritual Laws This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success. Joshua 1:8 NKJV Just as God established physical laws, such as the law of gravity, so there are spiritual laws that have been set in motion by God. And they are just as sure as physical laws. God’s physical laws can be found in a physics book; His spiritual laws can be found in the Word of God, the Bible. Although it is God’s will that you be fruitful, blessed, healed, and prosperous, there are some prerequisites to obtaining these blessings. And these prerequisites are found in His Word, specifically in Joshua 1:8, which we read above. The spiritual law and it’s prerequisites found in this verse can be summed up simply like this: talking the Word + meditating (murmuring to your self) the Word + acting on the Word = prosperity, wise dealing, healing and success. I have applied this spiritual law consistently to my life and ministry for many years now, and it never fails to produce the promised results. But this law wasn’t just written for Jerry Savelle; it was written for you too. And when you begin to apply it to your own life, you can expect the same results. Confession: I make the quality decision today to study the Word of Gd concerning my areas of need. I believe the Holy Spirit revels...

Confident Faith Therefore Do not cast away your confidence, which has great reward. For you have need of endurance, so that after you have done the will of God, you may receive the promise. Hebrews 10:35-36 NKJV. Did you know your ability to stand on God’s Word and stay focused on what you cannot yet see with your eyes will determine how much of God’s goodness manifests in you life? Every promised victory we achieve in life is made up of these three components: The initial assurance and confidence that God is going to come through.The season where it appears as though nothing is happening.The manifestation of the promise. I’ve learned it is the second component that usually offers the greatest challenge to our faith. So, how do you remain confident and exercise patience when nothing appears to be happening? You do what Moses did. The Bible says, “For he looked ahead to the reward (promised by God) … for he endured (steadfastly) as seeing Him who is unseen. Hebrews 11:26-27 AMP. Moses kept his eyes on the reality of the invisible, not on the visible natural circumstances. This ability to stay focused on the reward ahead enabled Moses to be faithful and fulfill God’s calling on his life. Every challenge you will ever face is an opportunity for you to build strength of character to endure the “nothing is happening” seasons of life. Determine to remain confident and endure these seasons with patience, and you will most certainly see the manifestation of God’s promise. Confession: I hold fast to my confident faith as I choose to continue in...

Devotion For January 16

But You belong to God, my dear children. You have already won a victory over those people, because the Spirit who lives in you is greater than the spirit who lives in the world. 1 John 4:4 NLT At the time of Israel’s exodus from Egypt, there was no mightier army on the face of the earth than Pharaoh’s army. Imagine what it must have been like for the Israelites to see that army pursuing them with chariots and horses, with shields and swords and spears. If it were happening today, it would have been tanks and hummers and aircraft coming at them all at the same time. The Israelites thought they were dead. So what did Moses tell them to do? He said, “Don’t be afraid. Just stand still and watch the Lord rescue you today. the Egyptians you see today will never be seen again. The Lord Himself will fight for you. Just stay calm.” (Exodus 14:13-14 NLT) Just stay calm…That’s kind of hard to do. Sometimes the devil comes at us with everything he has, with all his temptations and all his deceptions. We think we’re not going to survive it. Yes, we will. The Bible says, “But you belong to God, my dear children. You have already won a victory over those people, because the Spirit who lives in you is greater than the spirit who lives in the world.” (1 John 4:4...

Devotion For January 15

Determination They made an opening in the roof above Jesus by digging through it and then lowered the mat the man was lying on. When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralyzed man, “Son, your sins are forgiven” Mark 2:4-5 NIV How determined are you to do what it takes to connect with the life and power of God? In the book of Mark , we find the story about a group of men who’d evidently heard about the ministry of Jesus, and they believed their paralyzed friend could be healed. But just knowing Jesus could heal their friend was not enough. They had to be determined to do whatever was necessary to get that paralyzed man into the presence of Jesus. Jesus saw their faith in their determination to get to Him — even if it meant ripping up someone’s else’s roof. He saw their determination to connect with the source of all life and power. How determined are you to get into the presence of Jesus? How determined are you to take the time to meditate in the Word of God and allow God to speak to you? If you find yourself unable to spend much quality time in the the Word, perhaps you have an overcrowded life? I don’t know the need you may be facing today, but connecting with the life and the power of God begins with your determination to get into His presence. And when you do, you’ll find sufficient grace to meet your every need. Confession: Father, I thank you for giving me the wisdom I need to adjust my...
