Covenant . . .

stronger

The word “can’t” should not be in our vocabulary.

Who decided to take the word “can” and add ‘n’ega‘t’ivity?

The word starts off positive, hopeful and encouraging… The way we started out… And ends in doubt, fear and termination…

We can commit to a new diet…

But we won’t commit to fasting to break stronghold and heal diseases…

We can commit to a workout plan..

But we won’t commit to working in our communities…

We can commit to watching a new television series or reality show…

But we won’t commit to reading God’s word daily…

We can commit to checking our social media faithfully…

But when it comes to God’s commandments we are unfaithful…

We can commit to gossiping and simply talking about our problems…

But we won’t commit to speaking life over them and into them to change them…

We can commit to a list of vacations each year…

But we won’t commit to attending church every Sunday…

We can commit to making time for our friends…

But we won’t commit to helping the friendless…

We can commit to making and achieving goals for ourselves…

But we won’t commit to changing the lives of some else…

We can commit to praying to God when we need a blessing or need help…

But we won’t commit to spending quality time with Him to learn His heart…

With the incomprehensible amount of power that we obtain, how do we allow ourselves to ever be defeated?

How is it that we will commit to what kills us and neglect what heals us?

We have the power to speak to the mountain and tell it to move… yet we stand in front of it complaining about how we can’t move it…

We make covenants to things of this world that have no benefit to our eternal life.

We use the same power that God put in each one of us to complain about what we can’t do instead of showing this world what all we can do.

Somewhere our priorities got mixed up.

Instead of spending so much time focusing on the problem we have to change our attitudes.

Stop committing to what you can’t and give power to what you can.
