Psalms 19:14 -“May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing to you, O LORD, my rock and my redeemer.”
As we begin a new work week, let us honor the Lord with our speech and what we feed our heart and minds with. Amen?

“The Walk To Freedom” By Casey Treat
Many times, we make choices that are motivated by our fear. We need the money, so we stay in a job we dislike. We don’t want to get overweight, so we eat healthy. We don’t want to feel guilty, so we go to church. These choices all reflect our fears instead of hope. What would happen if instead of operating in fear, you operate in faith?
Making choices rooted in faith brings freedom. We are no longer stuck in a job we hate but see the job as a blessing and a training ground for the better career that is to come. We no longer see the grilled chicken and vegetables as a bland meal but as sustenance for a healthy life. We go to church with the mindset that we don’t have to go, but we love to go and are strengthened in the community of believers. Perspective changes everything!
Renewal Thought: Your freedom is connected to your perspective on things, and shifting perspective will help you see God’s truth at work in your life.
Prayer: Father, I pray that faith and hope will guide my thoughts and decisions. I believe, God, that You empower me to rise above the negatives and live the abundant life You came to give me. With Your help, Father, I doubt my doubts and believe my beliefs. I believe renewal is working in me and abundant life is mine.
Breaking Out of Your Comfort Zone” By Casey Treat
Our strongholds give us a sense of familiarity and comfort. Like that pair of jeans you always throw on, strongholds can be the most comfortable thought you have. You have thought it so many times that you don’t even realize the thought is there!
For instance, do you expect to get sick at least once a year? You just expect it so when it happens, you aren’t surprised and you just embrace it as the change of season. You don’t even realize the stronghold of sickness in your mind because maybe your parents always said it, now you always say it, and it’s a fixture in your mind.
There are many things we automatically believe that have constructed strongholds in our minds. Break out of those comfortable thoughts today! You don’t have to be sick. You don’t have to have a terrible day, you don’t have to have a bad marriage, and your children don’t have to go through “a bad phase.”
Renewal Thought: The Lord loves you and wants you to live an abundant and prosperous life. Begin to see His love and embrace His goodness in order to help you break free from the comfort zones that ensnare you.
Prayer: I pray the Truth of God is making me free from the strongholds that hold me down. I believe that negative expectations will not control my marriage, career, finances, or health. I am transformed by the renewing of my mind to experience God’s perfect Will. I thank you, Father, for healing and strength, peace and joy. I am pulling down strongholds and walking in Your Favor.
The Lord is always there waiting for you to call upon His name; will you make that call today? Have a great Monday everyone!
