The Redeemed Challenge – Day 26

Good morning! Today is Day 26 of the Redeemed Challenge! In today’s chapter of the book, we see that when we gave our hearts to the Lord, we became righteous through our faith in Jesus. Sometimes we try to earn our salvation or work to gain God’s approval. But the good news is that we don’t have to strive for God’s approval because we are already seen as a treasure to God. If you have accepted Jesus as Lord and Savior, then God already approves of you, accepts you, and loves you.

The Redeemed Challenge – Day 25

Good morning! Today is Day 25 of the Redeemed Challenge! What a powerful and amazing privilege we have to be able to pray to God. In today’s chapter of the book, we are reminded that God hears our prayers. Whatever it is you are dealing with today, bring them to the Lord. Many times we view prayer as a last resort. But it should be our first step in any battle we are facing. Prayer is so very powerful. And God hears all of His children’s prayers. We might get discouraged when He doesn’t answer a prayer in the way we hoped. But that doesn’t mean He didn’t hear you or answer you. We have to trust that He knows what is best in our lives.

The Redeemed Challenge – Day 24

Good morning! Today is Day 24 of the Redeemed Challenge! In today’s chapter of the book, we learn that we have the mind of Christ. The next time you are tempted to berate yourself for not thinking clearly, remind yourself of this truth. In my home, we have numerous Bible verses on our bathroom mirror, and this is one of them. My husband and I will sometimes make negative comments about having a bad memory, so this reminds us that we have the mind of Christ. The next time you are tempted to say that you make poor decisions, you aren’t smart, or you have a bad memory – remember you have the mind of Christ.

The Redeemed Challenge – Day 23

Good morning! Today is Day 23 of the Redeemed Challenge! Other people in our lives might hurt us or let us down. But in today’s chapter of the book, we read that we have been adopted into God’s family. You are never alone and never forgotten, for you belong to the King of Kings. God wants you. Think about that for a moment. The King of Kings. The Lord of Lords. The Great I Am. Almighty God wants you. He has adopted you into His family with great pleasure.

And I have something else I wanted to share with you today. Someone shared this with me on Instagram, because it goes so well with the things we have been talking about throughout The Redeemed Challenge. It is a clip from the movie Overcomer. (Hopefully you can still get to it without logging into IG.) Enjoy! https://www.instagram.com/tv/B2pNgJyFOs3/?igshid=11a9agf8b55vc

The Redeemed Challenge – Day 22

Good morning! Today is Day 22 of the Redeemed Challenge! (And it is You Are Redeemed’s first birthday! Insert confetti! 🎉)

Many of us tend to focus on what we perceive as flaws. But in today’s chapter of the book, we read that we were made in God’s own image. Hold onto this truth the next time you are tempted to put yourself down. Most of us have a magnifying glass on each and every one of our own flaws. We put ourselves down and only focus on the things we wish were different. But remember – God created you and He doesn’t make mistakes.

The Redeemed Challenge – Day 21

Good morning! Today is Day 21 of the Redeemed Challenge! In today’s chapter of the book, we read that nothing can separate us from God’s love. What an uplifting verse that give us encouragement with whatever we are facing today. We all face scary things in life. Just because we have given our lives to God doesn’t mean we won’t have struggles. Our enemy will attack us in different ways, trying to bring us down. But we need to remember that God is always there. We are never alone. And nothing can ever separate you from the love of the Lord.

The Redeemed Challenge – Day 20

Good morning! Today is Day 20 of the Redeemed Challenge! In today’s chapter of the book, we read about the fact that we are forgiven. This is something that we know is true as Christians. Yet we don’t always allow that truth to sink deep into our hearts. I hope you can hold this truth in your heart today. If you are a Christian, then you are forgiven. Allow this word “forgiven” to release you of whatever regrets you are holding onto. Whatever burdens you are gripping, let them go. Once you do, you will feel a weight lifted off your shoulders. You were never meant to carry those things around. The price has already been paid by the blood of Jesus.

The Redeemed Challenge – Day 19

Good morning! Today is Day 19 of the Redeemed Challenge! In today’s chapter of the book, we read a powerful truth, that we are Christ’s ambassador. We represent Jesus wherever we go. How amazing that we hold this position of influence? As Christians, we really do have a lot more power than we realize. We have the opportunity to positively influence everyone we encounter. Instead of letting the world bring us down, let’s start making an impact on those around us.

The Redeemed Challenge – Day 18

Good morning! Today is Day 18 of the Redeemed Challenge! Sometimes we get discouraged about the roadblocks in our path or dreams that didn’t work out like we planned. In today’s chapter of the book, we read about something that brings us hope. Whatever path you are on, God will continue His good work within you. I heard my pastor say recently that God loves us too much to leave us the way He found us. I really loved that because without Him we are nothing. But with Him, think of the amazing people we could become. Think of the things we could accomplish. And our hopes and dreams can come to fruition in much bigger ways than we could have imagined.

Good morning! Today is Day 17 of the Redeemed Challenge! In today’s chapter of the book, we read an amazing reminder that we sometimes forget – the Holy Spirit is with us 24/7. Sometimes we might feel as though God is out of our reach. Since we can’t see Him face-to-face, we might doubt that He is there. But as Christians, we have the Holy Spirit living inside of us. All day, every day. He is there!
