"Things Aren't Getting Better.
They're Getting Worse!"

     Today we're fasting from the thought that says, "Things aren't getting better. They're getting worse!"

     Thinking this way is NOT AN OPTION.
     This thinking keeps us bound to the past, or moving backwards. The media espouses negativity. The spirit of darkness is behind so many of the world's thoughts and mindsets. The devil promotes doom and gloom to get people depressed, on drugs, fearful and timid--- distracted from the worship of God and the work of the Gospel.
     The world is full of bad news --- the economy is getting worse, society is getting worse, etc. But we reject this thought TODAY!

  1. The path of the righteous... gets brighter and brighter until the full day (Proverbs 4:18).
  2. "Evil men and imposters will go from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived." (2 Timothy 3:13). But the opposite is true about you! Goodness follows you; therefore, you go from good to better!
  3. Adopt "running over" thinking. Don't think "glass half full or glass half empty." Think: My cup runs over (Psalm 23:5)!
  4. Your life is going to end up better than it started! (Ecclesiastes 7:8 says, "Better is the end of a thing than the beginning.") Haggai 2:9 says, "The latter days of this house shall be greater than the former."
  5. Believe that God has saved the best for last. John 2:10 says, "... But you have saved the best for last!" That's His nature. Your best days are ahead of you, not behind you.
  6. God only has the best in mind for you. In Luke 15:22 the father said, "bring the best robe and put it on my son..." We need to think like sons and daughters of God rather than slaves. We are not dogs waiting for the crumbs from the table. We are sons and daughters, and even when we've failed, God intends for us to experience His best!
  7. Follow the pattern of how God does things. He takes us from the Old Covenant to the New Covenant; from the blood of animals to the blood of Jesus; from the law to grace; from sin to righteousness; from sickness to health; from adversity to prosperity; from defeat to victory; from unclean to clean; and from empty to filled. Everything in God's Kingdom gets better and better. The Kingdom of God is in you (Luke 17:21) therefore, expect things to get better and better in every area of your life.


FEATURING:   No matter what is happening in this world. things are getting
                          better and better for me! God has made me righteous through
                          His blood; therefore, my path is getting brighter and brighter
                          My inner self is being renewed day by day. Evil people ma
                          go from bad to worse, but the goodness of God follows me,
                          so I go from good to better every day.
                          I can celebrate in the presence of my enemies because my cup
                          runs over and never runs out! God has saved the best for last
                          in my life and my latter days will be better than my former days.
                          In Jesus' Name.
