Daily Devotion – October 12

Day 284 – October 12

In Christ

“Convinced of this, I know that I will remain and continue with you all, for your progress and joy in the faith, so that in me you may have ample cause to glory in Christ Jesus, because of my coming to you again.”
Philippians 1:25-26

Do you ever wonder what it would be like to be able to say these words without pride and in all sincerity? Each one of us has an internal desire to make a difference and to matter. No matter the personality type, gender, race, or cultural distinction we all want to matter! The problem is that we can have something good to say on a social media page or in a video we put out and show the world our highlight videos, but if we aren’t doing what we are typing it’s a lot of noise with no real impact. Your life’s work is who you are and what kind of man or woman you are matters a lot more than how successful we think you are! It is possible to be a public success and a private failure, but no matter how many people celebrate you publicly, if you are walking with Jesus and operating in Christ and your new self you will become what God made you to be and be able to be a private success full of His grace and truth.

Try this: Whatever advice you would give me to be encouraged and stay faithful, write it down for yourself and do it! You will be amazed how God has put in you what you need if you remain focused on Him and the task He has for you. You can do it!

We’re more than conquerors in Christ.
