You’ve Got Power

You've heard the saying, “Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you respond.” Daily, we are faced with opportunities that will get us upset, frustrated or offended. Maybe you had plans that didn't work out, or someone was rude to you. Maybe you were doing something that should have taken one hour, and it ended up taking three. Life is full of unexpected inconveniences, but even though we can't always control our circumstances, most of the time we can control our reactions to those circumstances.  

Each day, we should go out full of hope, and expect 's favour with a positive attitude. But at the same time, we should recognise that most days are not going to go exactly as we planned. Remember, we were created to live in peace.  

Today and every day pray for peace. Peace is our position of power. If you get stressed because you get off schedule, or get upset because your child wouldn't eat his breakfast, or frustrated because somebody offends you, what you're doing is giving away your power. Instead, make the decision to release those offenses and disappointments so you live in peace, and move forward in the power and victory has given you! 

“Good sense makes a man restrain his anger, and it is his glory to overlook a transgression or an offense.” (Proverbs 19:11, AMP) 

Let's Pray

Yahweh, thank You for the power of peace You have placed in me through Your spirit. Father, today I release every care, concern, offense and disappointment to You. I declare today to keep the peace that You have given, and not let the devil steal my joy! God I trust You, knowing that with You my best days begin today and every day ahead, in Christ's Name! Amen.
