WORD 4 Today 2/29: Well then, if we emphasize faith, does this mean that we can forget about the law? Of course not! In fact, only when we have faith do we truly fulfill the law. Romans 3:31 NLT; But by shifting our focus from what we do to what God does, don’t we cancel out all our careful keeping of the rules and ways God commanded? Not at all. What happens, in fact, is that by putting that entire way of life in its proper place, we confirm it. MSG

Confess: Today, on this EXTRA DAY this year I will EMPHASIZE MY FAITH!  I intentionally SHIFT MY FOCUS from the circumstances around me & I LOOK TO Jesus the AUTHOR & FINISHER of my FAITH!  I am CONFIRMING Jesus is FIRST IN MY LIFE! - P. Rick

WORD 4 Today 2/28: We conclude that a person has God’s approval by faith, not by his own efforts. Romans 3:28 GW; We’ve finally figured it out. Our lives get in step with God and all others by letting him set the pace, not by proudly or anxiously trying to run the parade. MSG

Confess: Again I have GOD’S APPROVAL because I MAINTAIN my FAITH IN HIM!  I am IN STEP WITH GOD today!  He is ALL that MATTERS to me!  I want to INFLUENCE OTHERS for Him! - P. Rick

WORD 4 Today 2/23: No matter who you are, if you judge anyone, you have no excuse. When you judge another person, you condemn yourself, since you, the judge, do the same things.

    Always, Always, Always BE HOPEFUL!

    Always, Always, Always BE HOPEFUL!

    Faith gives SUBSTANCE to the things we hope for (Hebrews 11:1).  That is BASED on the Word of God.

    Proverbs 13:12 tell us that: Hope that is deferred, that is prolonged or delayed, makes the HEART sick.  But when the dream is fulfilled it becomes a TREE of LIFE!


    Hebrews 10:23 (NKJV) Let us hold fast the CONFESSION of our hope without wavering (seize and hold fast and retain without wavering the hope we cherish and confess and our acknowledgement of it -AMP; hold tightly to the hope -CEV; We must continue to hold firmly to our declaration of faith -GW; hold tightly without wavering to the hope we affirm -NLT), for He who promised is faithful.

    (MSG) Let's keep a firm grip on the promises that keep us going. He always keeps his word.

    Keep CONFESSING the WORD, hold tightly the CONFESSION of your HOPE!

    Be blessed!
