NO EXCUSE TO LIVE DEFEATED

Posted on June 29, 2013 at 2:30 PM

As a Jesus follower we have been given EVERYTHING we need to live a victorious and beautiful life in partnership with Christ.  

We have not been promised an easy life by any means, but we HAVE been given all the tools we need to overcome every hardship and difficult thing that comes our way. God made sure, we as His children were given every spiritual gift to be able to live free, redeemed, restored and healed in every area of our life. As we embrace how God has destined us to live, we in turn are able to help usher others into this same victorious way of living. 

In the bible, in the book of Ephesians, Paul was trying to get the church of Ephesus to understand the kind of life they could live if they would just embrace what God had already given them once they accepted Christ into their lives. These were Christians who were living like spiritual beggars, yet had a rich spiritual bank account that God was waiting for them to embrace.
 Paul let them know that they had no excuse to live in a defeated manner.  

As Christians we have it all, adoption, acceptance, redemption, forgiveness, wisdom, inheritance, the seal of the Holy Spirit, life, grace, and citizenship. We are rich beyond measure.

I love how Pastor Tobin Wilson from the Lake Burien Presbyterian Church put it in one of the church newsletters. 

Simple but powerful. Based off of Psalms 23. 

The Lord is my Shepherd ----- that's a Relationship! 

 I shall not want ----- that's Supply!  

 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures ----that's Rest! 

 He leadeth me beside the still waters -----that's Refreshment! 

 He restoreth my soul ----- that's Healing!  

 He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness --that's Guidance! 

For His name sake ----- that's Purpose!   

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death--that's Testing!  

 I will fear no evil ----- that's Protection!  

 For Thou art with me ----- that's Faithfulness!   

Thy rod and Thy staff comfort me -----that's Discipline!  

 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies------that's Hope!   

Thou annointest my head with oil -----that's Consecration! 

My cup runneth over ----- that's Abundance! 

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life----that's Blessing!   

And I will dwell in the house of the Lord -----that's Security!   

Forever ----- that's Eternity!   

God has given us EVERYTHING we need through His great love for us, to live VICTORIOUSLY.

Inspiration is the one thing that you are probably going to need once you are willing to achieve any goal in life. I am sure that you have been trying to express the same thing and it sure is the best thing.

This is a powerful message to all Christians out there who are struggling with their lives. I believe that this is just exactly what I needed to hear. It is true that we don't have excuse to live defeated because we have the Lord on our side and He is battling with us. He has already won the battle so we need not to worry about this life. As long as we trust in Him and believe that He won't leave us, then expect that your life will be wonderful and beautiful just like what the Lord wants it to be.
