What Drives You

Jennifer Cole

"To be mature is to be basic. Christ! No more, no less. That’s what I’m working so hard at day after day, year after year, doing my best with the energy God so generously gives me." Colossians 1:28-29, Message

This verse gets me out of bed every morning excited, passionate and revving on all 8 cylinders! God has hardwired me with the desire to help equip the world with the basics. Why the basics? Well, just like a house can only be well-built on a strong, solid foundation -- the basics of faith are what you build your LIFE upon, so it’s super important that we are strong and solid in the basics! We are never too old, too young, too mature or too spiritual -- the basics are for everyone, in every season, in every country!

So, what drives you? Has God illuminated a Scripture or two to you that just seem to perfectly describe the passion He has hardwired into you? Put that Scripture on your mirror, in your car, on your phone or computer screensaver -- everywhere you can so that your God-given purpose and passion are always on the front burner of your heart and mind! And, if you haven’t yet had that experience of a Scripture just “jumping off the pages” to your heart, you can experience that -- just ask and seek!

Say This: “Father, thank You that You’ve hardwired into me a passion and excitement, and I thank You that the Scriptures will confirm and illuminate those desires. I ask You to please help additional Scriptures to ‘jump off the page’ to my heart, to encourage and invigorate me to pursue the purpose You’ve put in me. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.”

Have You Heard??

It’s probably safe to say that most of us could recite John 3:16 from memory, any time, any place! But do you want to know what I love just as much as John 3:16? John 3:17! Let’s check it out together today:

“For God did not send the Son into the world in order to judge (to reject, to condemn, to pass sentence on) the world, but that the world might find salvation and be made safe and sound through Him.” John 3:17, AMPC

Nothing could describe how much you are loved by the Creator more than knowing that He sent His Son to the Cross so that you could be saved and made safe and sound through Him. Man oh man -- can’t you see it? Have you heard?? YOU are LOVED.

Boom! Mic drop.

‘Nuf said.

Say This: “Father, WOW -- You love me with such an incredible love! Thank You for sending Jesus to do the finished work of the Cross, so that I could be saved and made safe and sound through Him. You are my Lord and Savior, and I thank You for loving and rescuing me! In Jesus’ Name. Amen.”

High Five!

Jennifer Cole

“Be happy with those who are happy...” Romans 12:15, NLT

Today I’m virtually high fivin’ you!!


Because you’re awesome. Because you’re unique. Because God made you quirky, funny, talented and special -- a genuine masterpiece!

And hey -- how much more fun would life be if we gave out a whole lot more high fives every day? Today I challenge you -- spread cheer, love and appreciation all around you by sharing smiles, high fives and hugs! It’ll be contagious!

Say This: “Father, thank You for all the wonderful people in my life. Help me know how to appreciate and cheer them on, and thank You for putting people in my life who appreciate and cheer me on too! In Jesus’ Name. Amen.”

Facing Opposition?

Jennifer Cole

“...He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.” 1 John 4:4, NKJV

Have you ever thought about this -- sometimes you can know what something IS by knowing what it ISN'T. For instance, you may be searching for your “dream home” -- and that journey may take you through a lot of “isn’t” before you can spot the one that “is!” But did you also know that this idea can be helpful for figuring out what’s going on in the supernatural too?

Here’s what I mean -- If you want to know what God is doing...just find out what the devil is opposing! If you want to know what God is anointing...just look at what the devil is fighting against. 

You can probably think of things you’ve seen the devil opposing and fighting all around you. In what ways has the enemy come against you? What types of complaints have you been hearing from naysayers? What challenges have you had to push through? It’s a very good sign that you are hot on God’s trail and the devil knows it -- so he’s been trying to stop, thwart, discourage and hinder you from pursuing it.

The devil doesn’t know everything, but he does know some things. He is not omnipresent, omniscient or omnipotent -- but he does have thousands of years of human history as a reference point. When he recognizes God's hand and anointing on someone or something, he fights it. 

Thankfully, because of Jesus, the devil is completely defeated and facing a very bleak eternal future in the lake that burns with fire. However, we would be wise to recognize that until that time, the enemy looks for what God is touching and whom God is anointing and he goes to work to suppress and oppose those things. When we recognize this, we will actually have a better grasp on what the Holy Spirit is doing!

From this perspective, now you can recognize the enemy’s opposition and take it as confirmation that you are smack-dab in the middle of God’s will and heading into even greater things! Don’t let the enemy cause you to quit. Stay in the game and allow the hand of God to work in and through your life in an even greater way! The devil is defeated and greater is He who lives in you than he who lives in the world!

Say This: “Father, thank You for helping me to recognize what You are up to in this world and in my own life by discerning those things the devil fights and opposes. Today, I choose to be strong in the Lord and Your plan for my life. I choose to be bold and walk in the anointing that is upon my life. Satan is defeated and Jesus is Lord of my life! In Jesus’ Name. Amen.”

Here's the Secret

Jennifer Cole


Where do you want to be in life in 1 year...5years...20 years…? What do you want your relationships to look like...or your health, your finances and your career? It’s important for each of us to intentionally set goals for our future. But, how we reach those goals is not through some lofty theory or mysterious’s simply a matter of making daily choices that align with those goals. If you put your foot down one in front of the other, aiming down the right path every day -- you WILL reach wherever that path leads to!

So this is my encouragement to you today -- know where you’re heading and what you’re aiming for, and then every day make progress towards it. Keep yourself heading in the right direction. Yes, every now and then you might take a misstep, and when you do -- pull yourself up by the bootstraps and march on! After all, it’s what you do over-and-over again -- those daily, habitual actions -- that makes the real difference.

I’m praying for you and cheering you on in your journey! I trust that the Lord is helping to direct your steps into all the blessings He has in store for you!

Say This: “Father, I am so thankful that your plans for me are full of joy, abundance, peace and blessings. I ask You to please help me every day to aim my feet in the right direction -- help me to establish daily actions that lead me down the right path into all that You have for me in my journey and in my calling. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.”
