Daily Devotion

We all need a little help.  Overcoming a lifetime of making poor choices can be a real struggle.  Below are some bible verses that will help you to overcome. 

When you speak these words in faith with a sincere heart, they will become a bridge for you to walk on, to carry you forward.   They are life changing and life forming.  These words, spoken out loud will empower you and transform you right there in your struggle.  They will help you to manage those emotions that are too hard for you to handle alone.  I encourage you to meditate on these scriptures and get them down in your spirit because they are keys to your success.  Your goal is to make your spirit man stronger than the cravings of your flesh and to bring balance to your soul:  Your will, your mind, your emotions, and your intellect.  The only way to do that is to hang out with the word of God, in addition to making those healthy choices and your exercise regimen.

I also pray that you will understand the incredible greatness of God’s power for us who believe him. This is the same mighty power that raised Christ from the dead and seated him in the place of honor at God’s right hand in the heavenly realms.  Ephesian 1: 19-20


For God wanted them to know that the riches and glory of Christ are for you Gentiles, too. And this is the secret: Christ lives in you.  This gives you assurance of sharing his glory.  Colossians 1:27
