Key Lessons and Takeaways:

  • The importance of thriving over just surviving.

  • Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.Romans 8:37 (NKJV)


  • No one who hopes in you
        will ever be put to shame,
    but shame will come on those
        who are treacherous without cause.
    Psalm 25:3 (NIV)


  • But He was wounded for our transgressions,
    He was bruised for our iniquities;
    The chastisement for our peace was upon Him,
    And by His stripes we are healed.
    Isaiah 53:5 (NKJV)


  • So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth;
    It shall not return to Me void,
    But it shall accomplish what I please,
    And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.
    Isaiah 55:11 (NKJV)


  • What has been will be again,
        what has been done will be done again;
        there is nothing new under the sun.
    Ecclesiastes 1:9 (NIV)


  • Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.Hebrews 11:1 (NIV)


  • And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.Hebrews 11:6 (NIV)


Hold Yourself Accountable:

  • Make a decision to shift your perspective from reacting to responding to challenges and setbacks you encounter.


Apply the Kingdom Principle:

  • “From that time Jesus began to preach and say, “Repent [change your inner self—your old way of thinking, regret past sins, live your life in a way that proves repentance; seek God’s purpose for your life], for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.””Matthew 4:17 (AMP)


Take Action Now:

  • Ask yourself this question: “Which is bigger the challenge/setback or our God?”
  • Search the Word of God for a Scripture that applies to the challenge you’re experiencing.
