It’s Sunday night, a night of bittersweets. . .
Most of us have enjoyed a beautiful day alone or with family and friends . . .the house is quieting down, lovers may be cuddling up for a movie, friends may be finishing up conversations . . .preparations for the next day have been made . . .or not. No matter how we feel about it or how we’ve decided to address it, we have all realized by now that tomorrow is Monday.
Seems like most of us dread Mondays. Lord knows I’ve had some times where I was downright depressed about Mondays. I’m not even joking.
But, Frans, I’m trying something new that I wanted to get you in on. I just discovered that I have a drug that I can take that’ll help me deal with Mondays, Tuesdays, Bluesdays and all the other days too. Check this out:
20 My son, give attention to my words;
Incline your ear to my sayings.
21 Do not let them depart from your sight;
Keep them in the midst of your heart.
22 For they are life to those who find them
And health to all their body. (Proverbs 4:20-22, NASB)
So, are you trying to tell me that reading the word brings me health and life? Oh yes, chile. Yes, I am.
No matter what Monday holds for you, or any day for that matter, you can face it with joy, confidence, security, and love by taking your medicine. Read the word of God, listen to scripture, write it down, memorize His words, soak them in! Soak them up! The thing is, unlike any other medication, there is no danger involved in overdosing. Try and see. Put the word of God on everything you are facing. He is so worth it. You can take Him at His word. His word is His bond. He is trustworthy and His word works for our lives, NOW!
19 “God is not a man, that He should lie,
Nor a son of man, that He should repent;
Has He said, and will He not do it?
Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good? (Numbers 23:19 NASB)
Not sure what Monday holds for you but you don’t have to bow to it. You serve a very big God who has put His spirit in you and left His word for you to wield as a mighty sword to combat Satan, call him out as the liar that he is, take over your day and be victorious in all of the things that He will put your hands to!
So, which verse or set of verses will you look up tonight? All the power you need lies within you through the holy spirit and can be activated by encouraging your faith through the word of God.
Take some time to get into the word then stand up and shout with a voice of triumph, “bring it on Monday!!!”
