Morning by Morning, July 2 - Wide Open Door

Morning by Morning, July 2 - Wide Open Door

Good morning, Lord Jesus. At Your name, let every knee bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord. Be Lord of all my thoughts and desires, all my circumstances and choices, throughout all the moments of my day.  ...

"A wide door for effective service has opened to me, and there are many adversaries" (1 Corinthians 16:9).

We have an adversary who opposes the advance of the Kingdom of God through our lives. He's a liar and a thief; he accuses and condemns; he distorts the truth and slanders the saints (John 10:10). He's like a roaring lion, trying to intimidate and isolate his prey, always looking for someone to devour (1 Peter 5:8). And he's angry because he knows his time is short (Revelation 12:12).

But our God is greater! Our God is mighty to save! (Isaiah 63:1). Our adversary is defeated by the blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony (Revelation 12:11). And the gates of hell will not prevail against Your people, advancing together as Your church, into the fullness of Your Kingdom (Matthew 16:18).

The door is wide and the harvest is ripe (John 4:35). Now is the time to arise and shine, to breakthrough and advance. Though our adversary will oppose, he will not overcome. Though the battles are intense, the victory is won (1 Corinthians 15:57). We can thank You now and praise You now by faith for all the victories to surely come according to the faithfulness of Your Word and the persistence of our prayers (Matthew 11:24).

Through the victory of the cross, You've forever triumphed over our foe (Colossian 2:15). Now "the God of peace will shortly crush Satan under (our) feet" (Romans 16:20). By the power of the grace of God, we'll go through that door open wide for our effective service as the saints and servants and sons of God. And our adversary, the devil, who'll try his best to oppose our advance every step of the way until the end, can go to hell (Revelation 20:10). In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

Be encouraged today! In the Love of Jesus, Tommy Hays

My Friend,  may you go through every door the Lord has opened wide for your service to our Savior and King, as He crushes your adversary under your feet. Please pray the same for me. God bless you, my friend!
