Defeat Your Giants

Shield (2014_03_10 01_21_18 UTC)All believers are being attacked right now. It appears to be more than ever before. Whether it’s in their health, finances, family relationships, friendships, employment, or a vast list of other areas, or even a combination of many; we are all battling giants right now.

But did you know that your victory is closer than you think? Do you realize that when you are close to your turnaround and God’s blessings are coming towards you…warfare heats up.

Ephesians 6:12: For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.

Ephesians 6:11: Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil.

The closer your victory gets, the worse things are going to become. The devil is going to throw everything he can against you. Everything that bothers you will intensify. Everything that can go wrong, will go wrong. It’s just his way of trying to get you to give up and fail. He doesn’t want you to see God’s blessings. He doesn’t want to hear you recite God’s word. He doesn’t want you to be successful!

Let’s make the devil angry today!

  • When things go crazy…Pray!
  • When everything is going wrong…Trust and Believe in God!
  • When circumstances are overwhelming…Speak God’s Word over them!
  • When you see no way out…Speak to your giant mountain and proclaim victory in advance!

Stand your ground!

God’s Word is final. You may not see a way, but God has a way. It may not look like you’re winning right now, but you will. There is absolutely nothing impossible with God. He can turn any situation around in a blink of any eye. So get ready…your giants have already been defeated and your life is about to become bigger and better than ever before!

Deuteronomy 20:4: For the Lord your God is he who goes with you to fight for you against your enemies, to give you the victory.

YOU WIN! THE VICTORY IS YOURS!

Just hold on for you serve an AWESOME GOD!

God will provide

Build Your Faith

Feed Your FaithEvery day is a chance to see God work in us and work through us. Whether you need healing in your body, soul, mind, relationships, business, ministry, finances or family; God is with us every step of the way. Throughout the Bible, He has shown us time and time again that nothing is impossible with Him. He is willing and able to heal every area of our lives. We don’t have to wonder when or fear that it will ever happen.

Isaiah 41:10: Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

It is so important to continuously build our faith. By spending time alone with Him every day, reading the Bible to seek His wisdom and knowledge, and making your needs known to Him through prayer along with thanksgiving for His answers should be all part of our daily lives.

When you disconnect from the your daily distractions and spend time alone with God, you’ll find yourself more peaceful and knowing what path to take. God will make sure to guide your footsteps and restore your soul.

The more time you spend with God, the more you begin to know Him. Your life will begin to change and reflect into His image, into His ways, into His amazing truth. Nothing will be missing and nothing will be broken. God is our everything. He will make sure to take care of the massive big problems you face as well as all the teeny tiny ones. Your life will change beyond anything you could have ever imagined and your life will be an incredible testament to God’s love. He was, is, and will always be everything you need.

Every Day Blessings

Waking UpWhen you wake up in the morning, how do you look upon your day?  Are you stressed with all the things you need to accomplish or do you wake up and say THANK YOU LORD, I’m excited about what you have in store for me today?

However you see your day begin is the kind of day you will encounter.  If you start your day with thanksgiving, no matter what happens to you, you will be able to easily overcome the pressures and stresses.  But, if you begin your day thinking o’ man, here we go again…it dramatically effects your outcome.

See, when you can look back over the years and see God’s goodness and blessings, you can be positive that they will continue.  You will be able to know that all is well, no matter what you see in the natural. God works in mysterious ways and you never see His blessings coming towards you until they hit you over the head.  That’s His amazing grace upon you.  There is nothing you can do to earn His grace; it is a free gift from Him.  Once you accepted Jesus as Lord and Savior, you received God’s forgiveness of sins, as well as, His free gift of Grace. (Ephesians 2:4-8)Today is a Gift

By your willingness to trust, listen, and surrender to Him; brings the blessings to you unexpectedly.  They are never early and never late.  They always seem to come at the very last minute which takes a lot of faith on your part; knowing that He will provide whatever it is you need, at the very moment you need it.

So, embrace and thank Him for His amazing grace that is bolting towards you.  Thank Him for helping you in those dark moments when you can’t see a way out.  And, thank Him for His blessings that will continue to run you down and over take you.

He is the Alpha and Omega. (Revelation 1:8)  Nothing is too hard or impossible for Him! (Luke 1:37)  For He created you exactly the way you are and knows every strand of hair on your head.  So, be positive and confident in all your ways.  There is no telling what God will bring if you start knowing that every day is a blessing for something amazing to happen!

The Pain of Stress and Worry

Many of us struggle with stress and worry.  With all the “What Ifs” in life and all; life can be overwhelming at times.

  • Maybe your child is heading in the wrong direction.
  • Maybe you received a bad report from your doctor.
  • Maybe you are having financial problems.
  • Maybe you have too many things to accomplish and not enough time.
  • Maybe you have experienced a major change in your life recently.
  • Maybe your in a difficult relationship.

Whatever the case may be, worry and stress are very destructive.  When we over analyze or over think things, we become consumed by them.  Your daily life becomes “one-way” thinking, so to speak.  You eat, drink and live that particular situation until you simply can’t function correctly and you become irrational. That is a sure fire way for the devil to create chaos in your life.  He loves when you become “stressed out” or “too concerned” about something because he will take advantage of that very situation and make it worse than ever before.

John 10:10 tells us “the thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy…”

So, as you can imagine, the devil loves when we give him an opportunity to mess with our lives.  Stress and worry is one such way.  When we stress and worry, we tend to react too quickly and without analyzing the consequences of those actions.  The devil can use that against us.  He may tell you to go one way, when in all reality, you should have went the opposite direction.  That’s his style, taking advantage of anything he can and making life a living hell during the process.  So, what can we do about it?

Well, Jesus understood how destructive stress and worry could be.  He knew that we would be setting ourselves up for physical illnesses if we allowed these destructive emotions to rule our lives.  They can easily develop into migraines, pains in your body, difficulty in sleeping, digestive problems, obesity and even heart disease.  These are all very good reasons to take Jesus’ advice in this matter.  He specifically tells us not to worry, but instead, He says to look to God’s unfailing love and provision.  Bottom line, TRUST IN HIM!

The goal is to overcome the issue.  By putting God’s word into practice; you will become victorious over stress and worry.  It helps us to keep our focus on Jesus, no matter how we feel.  This in turn, allows Him to take care of the situation for us.  For He knows what the best outcome is, so why don’t you allow Him to be your healer, provider and protector.  Simply put…Whatever you need…HE IS!

The best way to use scripture is to have them handy.  Every time you become worried or feeling a little anxious, stop what you are doing, and state the scripture.  What this does is help you align yourself with God’s word and keep your focus on Jesus at all times.  This releases the pressure of stress and worry because no matter what, Jesus has got you covered.  He knows that it may feel like a setback to you, but in all reality, it is a setup for something greater.  Repeat after me…”God is handling all of my problems today and does not need my help.”  So, relax and have a Great Day!

KEY SCRIPTURES TO OVERCOMING STRESS AND WORRY

Matthew 6:25-27  “For this reason I say to you, do not be worried about your life, as to what you will eat or what you will drink; nor for your body, as to what you will put on.  Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing?  Look at the birds of the air, that they do now sow, nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them.  Are you not worth much more than they?  And who of you by being worried can add a single hour to his life?”

Matthew 11:28-30  “Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest.  Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and YOU WILL FIND REST FOR YOUR SOULS.  For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”

John 14:27  “Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful.”

1 Corinthians 7:32  “But I want you to be free from concern…”

Proverbs 12:25  “Anxiety in a man’s heart weighs it down, But a good word makes it glad.”

Philippians 4:6-7  “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.  And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”

1 Peter 5:6-8  “Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you at the proper time, casting all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you.  Be of sober spirit, be on the alert.  Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.”
