It is in our challenges that allow gratitude and grace to emerge. When challenges arise, rely on the inner love that God put in you. God loves us with a perfect kind of love, and perfect love casts out fear.
Also, when you are in the midst of a challenge, say "Thank you" for it, because you will know that brighter days are ahead and that there is nothing to fear. The principle of non-resistance states: "Because God is love and love protects all things, then refuge is found in God." You can be rest assured knowing that it is through this appreciation that you see God work wonders in your life.
So embrace your walk and be grateful for the sun rising each day. Better days are ahead and before you!
Our God is a God that has the whole world as his footstool. He needs to be glorified and honored upon the earth. When we think big and think outside of the box, we are literally taking hold of what part of the price Jesus suffered and died on the cross for us to do.
Jesus came so that we would have life and have life more abundantly. What steps are you taking to honor God for giving you life and great opportunities on earth?
When presented with a great opportunity to share your faith with someone, do not hesitate to recognize God at work. Any action that you do, no matter how big or small has a ripple effect in eternity. God promises that his word does not return unto him void. He is there, mighty and strong to help you accomplish his work in the earth.
So think big! Be creative! Be fun endearing and encouraging to others. Know that all the forces of evil cannot stamp out the good God has in store. What God has blessed cannot be cursed.
Colossians 1:18 “And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things he might have the preeminence.”
Financial Scripture is a Confession point on tithing previewed from Jae Magazine, covering the book of Colossians and excerpted from In Defense of Stillness by Jae Elizabeth, the world's largest scholastic compilation of full financial verses.
It is so important to keep God first place in our lives. Tithing, which is the act of giving 10% of your income to ministry, is an act that demonstrates this. It demonstrates to the Lord that his ways are higher than our ways and that we trust and rely upon him for financial provision. Be encouraged to open up your hearts and minds and follow this principle. God’s word promises that he will open up the windows of heaven and pour you our a blessing that you do not have room enough to receive.
Moreover, tithing places priority on helping the man of God, the poor, the widows, and immigrants, which is what it was put in place to do. Often times, we get caught up in our daily lives and it can be easy to overlook those in need. Tithing provides a safeguard so that churches and ministries have the financial capacity to sustain themselves and to do goodwill around the world for the less fortunate. Be encouraged to set aside your income and tithe. When you give cheerfully, you are giving unto the Lord.

Financial Scripture is a Confession point on obtaining the proper employment previewed from Jae Magazine, covering the book of Colossians and excerpted from In Defense of Stillness by Jae Elizabeth, the world's largest scholastic compilation of full financial verses.
We all want recognition for a job well done. Did you know that you are accepted in the beloved by God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ? Did you know that you are loved right where you are, for who you are and not what you have done?
We have all been tempted to have our jobs define who were are as an individual. But our jobs is merely a function that we perform to sustain ourselves financially. We all have different methods of earning our “daily bread”. The truth we have to hold fast to is whether we “love” our jobs or not, we are beloved by God himself. And when men do not recognize us for our works, God is there in heaven, cheering us on.
When we recognize that our identity is in being a child of God, that is when the true freedom comes. Be encouraged that no matter what your vocation is, you are loved by virtue of belonging to God himself.

Financial Scripture is a Confession point on having the financial provision to spread the good news, the gospel of Jesus Christ previewed from Jae Magazine, covering the book of Colossians and excerpted from In Defense of Stillness by Jae Elizabeth, the world's largest scholastic compilation of full financial verses.
Our callings to ministry come from God himself. Do you ever feel an unction to go towards a certain direction? That is not a coincidence, nor is it a surprise to God because he put that desire in you. You only need to trust God for the provision to complete the task set out in from of you. Because God placed the seed in you for his good purposes, your job is to grow, trusting him to water and cultivate and fertilize that seed. Often times, we take on extra heavy-laden burdens that should be cast upon Jesus, whose yoke is easy and burden is light.
Know that by putting God first, he will direct your path in a way that will send you towards light and hope. You need not be afraid for what is up ahead: he has ordered your steps and you are accepted in the beloved. Be encouraged to know that God is a God that shines good things upon people, and he will provide you with everything you need for the road ahead.

Our good works will live on long after we pass away. That is the essence of our legacy, and the great joy that we have in knowing that there will be people positively effected by your life that you will never know. Having knowledge of this allows you to be more purposeful in your walk with God.
You can wake up every day knowing that your work is not done in vain, but has a ripple effect of optimism on the planet. We are all connected to each other as human beings, from the cradle to the grave. Bask in the promises of God that you work unto the Lord, doing good and benefiting others, which leaving behind a treasure that will not moth, rust or be destroyed. It will outlast you.

Financial Scripture is a Confession point on having the grace of freedom from vain toil in finances previewed from Jae Magazine, covering the book of Colossians and excerpted from In Defense of Stillness by Jae Elizabeth, the world's largest scholastic compilation of full financial verses.
Jesus told us to take his yoke upon him because his yoke is easy and his burden is light. So when we labor for righteousness sake, laboring for the Lord, it is not done in vain. Nor, when we work on behalf of God, he meets us more than halfway and comes in strong and mightily. What is relief that we do not have to take on yokes that are too great for us to bear? What satisfaction and joy we can take from God knowing that through his grace, we have sufficient help for whichever projects come our way.
I know that this knowledge and wisdom of God is especially useful when I am undertaking activities in which I am not accustomed or familiar with. It is refreshing to carry along that foreknowledge of God’s goodness, knowing that his love extends in this way. When you feel heavily burdened, be encouraged to hand that problem over the Jesus and let him guide you to a path of peace.
Colossians 1:2 “To the saints and faithful brethren in Christ that are at Colossae: Grace to you and peace from God our Father.”

Grace and peace comes from our heavenly father, who is God almighty. He is to be reverence and glorified in all ways. My heart fills with love as I feel his presence in my life. When things are confusing, I know that I can turn to God for guidance and his light shines in me, directing my paths and showing me the way to go. He is indeed our Way-Shower, and knows the first from the last. It is in him that we move and have our being.
What can separate us from God’s love? Nothing. That is the remarkable and distinctive feature: his love and mercy endures forever, and God’s grace and peace is merely an extension of that.

Scripture tells us that Jesus created the earth. In what ways can you bring Christ to the creations you have in your life to glorify God?
Colossians 1:9-23 “For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray and make request for you, that ye may be filled with the knowledge of his will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, to walk worthily of the Lord unto all pleasing, bearing fruit in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God; strengthened with all power, according to the might of his glory, unto all patience and longsuffering with joy; giving thanks unto the Father, who made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light; who delivered us out of the power of darkness, and translated us into the kingdom of the Son of his love; in whom we have our redemption, the forgiveness of our sins: who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation; for in him were all things created, in the heavens and upon the earth, things visible and things invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers; all things have been created through him, and unto him; and he is before all things, and in him all things consist. And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence. For it was the good pleasure of the Father that in him should all the fulness dwell; and through him to reconcile all things unto himself, having made peace through the blood of his cross; through him, I say, whether things upon the earth, or things in the heavens. And you, being in time past alienated and enemies in your mind in your evil works, yet now hath he reconciled in the body of his flesh through death, to present you hold and without blemish and unreprovable before him: if so be that ye continue in the faith, grounded and steadfast, and not moved away from the hope of the gospel which ye heard, which was preached in all creation under heaven; whereof I Paul was made a minister.”
Colossians 2:15 “having despoiled the principalities and the powers, he made a show of them openly, triumphing over them in it.”
Financial Scripture is a Confession point on having supernatural financial protection previewed from Jae Magazine, covering the book of Colossians and excerpted from In Defense of Stillness by Jae Elizabeth, the world's largest scholastic compilaiton of full financial verses.
I become overwhelmed with joy and peace knowing that God, who is our provider is also our Way-Shower and protection over our life. This means that I can allow Jesus to come in and literally take over what I need. Jesus said that his yoke upon us is easy and his burden in light. I take him at his word because he has given us the victory of death and defeat on the Calvary cross and is seated at the right hand of the Father. That word ensures our supernatural protection, particularly in the area of finance. What can you do to today to give honor and glory to God almighty who has triumphed over all evil principalities and powers? Be encouraged to keep your head held high knowing that you are God’s workmanship and beloved child. And as as father, he will give you the supernatural protection that you need. Just continue to trust and rely on him.
