Your Future Starts Today!

by Henry Fernandez

Today God wants you to release your faith in a new way. You can leave the past behind and move forward to a new place of complete and total freedom in the Lord.

It doesn’t matter what your current problems are because they cannot stop God’s plan for your life. He has begun a good work in you, and He will complete it (Philippians 1:6)!
But you need to understand that your future is not based on the world’s economic systems or your present circumstances.

You can begin to walk in your full potential by aligning yourself with what God says about your future!

Fear and unbelief are the enemy’s main barriers to the manifestation of God’s promises in your life. The Lord is saying that if you want to prosper, you’re going to have to do things His way, using the principles of His Kingdom.

What’s Your Issue?

In Matthew chapter 9 we see the story of a woman who had an “issue of blood”:

A woman who had been subject to bleeding for twelve years came up behind him and touched the edge of his cloak. She said to herself, “If I only touch his cloak, I will be healed.” Jesus turned and saw her. “Take heart, daughter,” He said, “your faith has healed you.” And the woman was healed at that moment (Matthew 9:20-22).

This woman had an issue. You’ve got an issue. I’ve got an issue. We all have issues, but God says, “I want to settle your issues! I want to set you free so you can walk in freedom and victory.”

The woman in this story had lived with her issue for 12 long years. Can you imagine? Perhaps there is some difficult issue you’ve just learned to “live with” too.

But this woman got fed up with her condition and decided to make a turn. The Bible says, “She said to herself…” Notice this key to her turnaround. She changed her self-talk until she was aligned with the promises of God.

So, what are you saying to yourself today?

Are you going to just sit there until you die? Are you going to sit there and keep complaining? Or are you going to activate your faith and believe God for the breakthrough you need?

Ready for a New Beginning

I believe God has a new beginning for your life today. I believe He is ready to give you a fresh start. The Lord is saying, “Your faith is about to be renewed. Even though you have struggled with some issue for years, I can make you whole in a mere moment!”

The woman with the issue of blood said to herself, “If I only touch his cloak, I will be healed.” In the same way, you need to declare your breakthrough even before you see it come to pass. It’s time to boldly say to yourself, “I am free! I am blessed! God is releasing His favor in my life!”

When you activate your faith in this way, a bright new future can be closer than you think.
