Daily Devotional – 11/11/13 “SAVED”

Yea, we all know that when we accept God into our life that He saves us but did you know that being saved means you’re Soaring Above Valleys Every Day? See, each day that you walk for God the enemy’s job is to knock you down and when he shows up, it’s not to make you wobble but it’s to make sure you fall hard enough to stay down. See, the enemy wants to make sure you fall into the lowest valley so that you may not have the strength to pull yourself out of but my bible tells me in Exodus 15:2, “The LORD is my strength and my song; he has given me victory. This is my God, and I will praise him–my father’s God, and I will exalt him!” He wants to make sure you walk through the darkest valley so that you might not be able to see your way through but my bible tells me in Psalm 23:4, “Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.” He even wants you to get comfortable in your valley so that you’ll want to stay but what you need to do is remind that ole enemy that you’re saved which means you’re Soaring Above Valleys Every Day! Psalm 27:1 says, “The LORD is my light and my salvation–so why should I be afraid? The LORD is my fortress, protecting me from danger, so why should I tremble?” So why are you afraid of what the enemy pledges to do when you’re saved? Why are you running out of fear of what the enemy is throwing at you when you’re saved? Why are you hiding from the storm when you should be rejoicing in it? I mean, you are saved right? Then you should know that Psalm 91:2-4 says, “This I declare about the LORD: He alone is my refuge, my place of safety; he is my God, and I trust him. For he will rescue you from every trap and protect you from deadly disease and He will cover you with His feathers; you will take refuge under His wings. His faithfulness will be a protective shield.”

Stop stumbling and sinking yet stand up straight and strong. Stop scattering and start staying steadfast in your faith. Stop searching for what’s lost and seek those things that can be found. Stop sacrificing yourself and start serving God. Stop settling for anything and speak things as though they are. Stop suffering because you’re saved which simply means you can Soar Above Valleys Every Day because God is your strength and with Him you can defeat the enemy, reach that which was once impossible, be who they said you couldn’t, overcome that which broke someone else, recover from that which claimed someone else’s life, rebuild on the foundation somebody said was cracked, smile when someone tried to snatch your joy, live when somebody said you’d die, rise when they said you’d fall, walk when they said your knees would buckle from the pressure and survive after they stabbed you in the back. So if you’re SAVED then SAY IT and ACT LIKE IT!!
