STRENGTH: Jesus Left His Wallet Behind (Philippians 2:5-7)
God’s power is at its best when I am weak.  What Christ accomplished wasn't by accessing His divine powers - He had became human. He accomplished what He did because He was completely surrendered, humble, and reliant upon the Holy Spirit.   #HolySpirit​ #LetHimWin​ #YourFutureIsBright​

January 1, 2021
The Strength Of God's Plan (Matthew 2:1-16)
God's prophesies spoken over you are more powerful than the tactics of the enemy. Anytime God comes up with a plan - He needs a person.
