always in charge
In your patience possess ye your souls
Luke 21:19

Rhapsody of Realities Daily Devotional For Saturday 4th September 2021

The words above are the words of Jesus, and
He’s telling you to always be in control while
you wait it’s an attitude of victory. When you’re
confident in the Lord, in His ability and power at work
in and through you, nothing shakes you.
Perhaps you suddenly received news that your
spouse, child or a loved one has been rushed to the
theatre for an emergency procedure. Instead of being
rattled, be in charge and in control. Don’t start pacing
the floor, edgy about the situation: relax. Take charge!
Never panic or be overwhelmed with fear when
you face dire circumstances or opposition maintain
your composure and use your authority in Christ. Pray
in rest, for He’s brought us into His rest. Take a hold of
God’s Word, knowing who you are and your authority
in Christ, and then issue commands. Tame the situation.
The challenges you face are “bread” for you
they’re the springboard to your next and higher level of
glory. That’s why the Bible says, “Count it all joy when
you go through diverse tests” (James 1:2). 2 Corinthians
4:17-18 calls the adversities you face “light afflictions,”
transient and short-lived troubles—they produce for
you a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory.
There’s nothing in this world that should get
you ruffled or agitated. Meditate on these words of
Jesus in John 16:33 AMPC: “I have told you these
things, so that in Me you may have [perfect] peace
and confidence. In the world you have tribulation
and trials and distress and frustration but be of
good cheer [take courage be confident, certain,
undaunted]! For I have overcome the world. [I have
deprived it of power to harm you and have conquered
it for you].”


I’m in charge and in control of my life and circumstances. I’m strong, bold and courageous, functioning from a vantage position of rest because God has separated me from the world and given me a life of faith and victory through the Word. I live victoriously and triumphantly above sickness, disease, inflation and terror. I’m more than a conqueror, for greater is He that’s in me than he that’s in the world. Hallelujah!
