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.

Embrace Him.God Gives

Get to know Him.

Love Him.

Praise Him.

Thank Him.

And everything will be alright!

Decision Making

Decision-MakingHave you ever been in a decision making situation and had absolutely no idea which way to go? I have been in these types of situations so many times in my life, I stopped counting long time ago. The key to making good decisions is to stop and wait. What I mean by that, is sometimes we are simply too close to the situation and our minds go in so many different directions that it becomes impossible to make a good decision.

It’s kind of like running our mouths without stopping to think about what we’re trying to say, in the kindest way of saying it. Sometimes people can be rude or cruel, just by the way they are saying things. They could be completely telling the truth but if they don’t stop to think about what they are going to say or how they are going to say it, it can come across so brutally that people become angry towards your bluntness rather than listening to the truth you are actually saying.

Proverbs 15:1 “A gentle answer turns away wrath, But a harsh word stirs up anger.”

It’s the same thing with decision making. When you have a difficult situation that you really need an answer to, you start thinking about all the “what ifs” of life. If I go this way, this could be the result or if I go that a way, the result could be different. And it’s easy to get caught up in all the “what ifs” to only never make a decision. Or worse, making the wrong decision.

Don’t let your words or your decisions be made with folly or too much thought. Yes, we need to think things through and make good decisions. But the key is to stop and and surrender the situation to God. Whether it’s finding a soul mate, a financial situation, medical decision, making purchases or any other type of decision…the Bible will always have the answer.  If you don’t have a Bible with you at the time, you can simply slow down, get quiet and talk to God. Let Him take charge of the situation and fill you with His peace that surpasses all understanding. When you do this, your decisions will have better results and amazing long-term implications.

God knows the end from the beginning. He knows what path your life is to take and the results He wishes to see in your life. Every decision needs to include Him for the optimum results.

Decision-Making2

Philippians 4:6-7 “Do not be anxious about anything, 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.”

So today…surrender it all. Begin every moment, every thought, every word, and every decision asking God for His wisdom. He will give you the peace and wisdom to a more rewarding life and better decision making. He wants the absolutely best for you in all areas of life. Let Him guide you, for there is nothing too hard or too small for our Heavenly Father. And when God is involved with the decision making process, you can boldly and confidently walk in peace straight ahead, looking forward and never looking back!

Give Thanks

happy-turkey-day_give-thanksAh, the wonderful time of Thanksgiving. Sitting around the table with family and friends. Enjoying each other’s company filled with happiness and laughter. And, we certainly can’t forget about all the turkey, trimmings and pumpkin pie. What a glorious day to enjoy each year. The wonderful aromas filling the air.

But, have you ever taken a moment to look at the word, Thanksgiving. Do you realize that it can be broken down into two words? THANKS and GIVING!

When I think of Thanksgiving…sure, I remember all the wonderful memories of the years gone by. Cooking in the kitchen, enjoying the laughter, and watching football on TV. It is an amazing time for all to be had.

Have you ever realized that it could and should be a daily occurrence? Every time we wake up, we should THANK THE LORD for a new day. We should be thankful and grateful for the amazing day He has in store for us. It doesn’t matter what our circumstances look like at the moment. He has the answers and His ways are far beyond ours…so, we should be thankful that He will provide, heal, strengthen, and guide our steps.

We should also wake up each morning and be on the lookout of GIVING to someone in need. Giving is not just financial. You can GIVE a smile. You can GIVE time. You can GIVE kindness. You can GIVE a helping hand. There are so many ways to GIVE to our fellow man without breaking the bank. We just need to keep our eyes open and be ready to move when God shows us the way. It can be something as small as opening a door for someone. The key here is not to miss a moment; for giving is a beautiful way of living. You never know what that person is going through and you just might be God’s answer to them.

Let’s take a quick glance at what the Bible says about “Thanksgiving”:

  • 1 Thessalonians 5:18  “Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”
  • Psalm 107:1 “Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever!”
  • Philippians 4:6 “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.”
  • Luke 6:38 “Give, and it will be given to you. Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap. For with the measure you use it will be measured back to you.”

See, every day is filled with opportunity. It can be filled with anger and depression or it can be filled with love and laughter. We all have a choice to make every time we wake up in the morning. So, from now on, how will you treat Thanksgiving? For me and my house, I will serve the Lord and continuously be thankful in all things and give whatever and wherever He leads me.
