Choose Your Weapon

sky3Test and trials are placed in your way to build your faith , to increase your strength and will to pursue the things of Christ because he is your salvation. When the battle begins choose your attack wisely , practice silence before giving in to loud outburst spewed with hurtful and distasteful words that only lead to more pain. Take the time to just inhale and say Lord I need you . Pick up your bible and read it , this is you plan of action this is how you attack the enemy this is how you divide and succeed. Dry your tears , clear your mind and follow the leading of God, because the way you respond to the issue is how the devil decides to plan his next move .

The bible tells us that we fight not against flesh and blood but against spiritual wickedness , so when people attack you it’s the enemy using them . You have to know that the battle is not yours it’s the Lords , stop trying to fix it yourself and ask him to help you. Let go of everything that’s bothering you by asking God to take it away never to return and have the faith that it shall be done. Stand strong and in the power of Gods mighty hands as he clears the path of destruction like a whirlwind . We serve a mighty God and what the enemy uses to hurt the Lord uses it to heal .

Choose wisely how you approach life and the reactions you offer it in return . We can do all things through Christ , there’s nothing too hard for him, no problem too big or small , nothing too complex or so minor that he’ll refuse to take it on. Many have used God as their weapon of choice and have won each battle , like David in the lions den or his battle with Goliath , Moses with Pharaoh , Noah , Issac , Job , Peter , John , Mary (both) ,and the list goes on . You have victory on your side , come and redeem him and let him work on your behalf , choose the right weapon today and claim the victory !!!

Change Me

photo6After the hurt has come and the pain seems unbearable and your entire thought process is empty what do you do? How do you get back to being happy and hopeful for the future, especially when you have just lost your way . The answer is quite simple , you must ask God to change you . This is a process that we don’t like but it is necessary for your survival . You have to let go of the hurt and hatred and apply the love of God to come into your heart and make things right.

There will come a time in your life when you are hit with the worst blow of heartache and disappointment , but it is in that time that Psalms chapter 51 comes into place. You see in this chapter King David was going through some issues in his life and it was wearing heavy on him so he asked the Lord to change him , he said “create in me a clean heart and renew a right spirit in me”. Asking God for help is the best form of revenge because all it requires is for you  to surrender and have a little faith .

Things seem real bad right now , but place your trust and hope in God. He is a deliverer and provider for his children , we become safe and secure as the victory becomes a reality. Let go of it and ask God to change you from the inside out .

Conviction

tranquility-flowsConviction is an anchor that literally keeps your mind , body and spirit suspended in agony and defeat. You can’t function because you are so heavy with all of the issues of the moment that it becomes almost impossible to comprehend , and no matter how you try to get away from the situation you end up right where you started.  It is the enemies job to use your regrets against you and make you think that failure is the only thing your good at .

Don’t allow shortcomings to take over and steal the identity God has provided , your a child of the Living God and you are exactly as he purposed you to be . The devil can only make the conviction grow when you allow it to engulf you and break you down . As Christians we often forget that some things in life are inevitable and are used as a tool to get your attention and redirect you back on course. God already knew that you would cuss out your neighbor , or take that drink , or sneak around and have that affair. Nothing takes God by surprise so stop beating yourself up , you have been forgiven just confess it and move on .

Sincerity is what moves God to work on your behalf and pour unlimited blessings upon you . Once you step out of the will of God don’t stay stuck there as if all hope is gone , the very fact that it’s eating you up inside is a sure sign that you want to please God . Think about it , if it didn’t bother you there would be no reason for the tears in the midnight hour , or a feeling of shame and worthlessness . Confession is good for the soul , tell God about it and ask for forgiveness and press on to not make that mistake again . Find a way to lift up your inner man and love on God more and more , never returning to that dark place again .

Limited minded people will always question your salvation , but last time I checked they where not Jesus The Christ !!! Stop letting narrow minded folks dictate how you should live and walk in your spiritual relationship . This is a one on one love affair between you and Jesus , work out your own salvation with fear and trembling ( that’s bible) . Have a talk with the master and let him set you free and issue a “not guilty” verdict.

Forgiveness

photo15 The bible tells us to love our enemies and to do good to those that spitefully use us. It seems impossible to fulfill but is anything to hard for God ? If you want to find peace , then let go and move on. Many of us hold on to the past and have escrow that’s built in animosity and hatred.  It’s a shame to live like this , have you even considered that you may be the only participant in this feud ? Do you even remember why your angry or how you even got into this place?

I think it’s important to follow the leading of God and let love abide in and all around you.  Be forgiving as God has forgiven you , if he can forgive and forget why can’t you ? Release the memories of every lie ever told , every unnecessary attack , every malicious act towards you . Simply give it to God and ask him to direct your steps and to create a clean heart in you where you do not judge or wish ill towards your neighbor and learn to let go of the past.

The steps of a good man or woman are ordered by the Lord . Just let go and give it all to him no matter how hard it seems , no matter how you want to retaliate and cause them the same pain you feel . Forgiveness is the first step to reclaiming your joy and setting yourself free so come out of that bondage and begin to live again .

Gods Gift

poem_for_tranquilityOn this day we celebrate the life and resurrection of Jesus . He came from Heaven and took on the form of a man to walk among those that where lost , he preformed countless miracles and gave hope to a dying world. As his journey came to an end , he was taken and made a mockery for the world to see yet he never said a word . They beat him until he could not move as his flesh was torn and his mother watched helplessly.  They hung him on a cross while a crown of thorns pierced his head and still he remained quiet , loving us so much he asked God to forgive the people because they didn’t have a clue what they had done. When he released his spirit back to God the earth quaked and the skies darken and those that loved on him wept greatly . They placed him in a tomb and placed guards at the entrance fearful that his followers would come and take him . But just like he promised on that 3rd day he arose and walked out of that tomb. Death has no hold on our Savior he has risen and he is still alive today .

The death of Jesus was not beautiful nor glamorous , but through all the pain he endured his purpose .  God gave his only son and presented him to the world as the ultimate sacrifice , gifting him to us so that we as his creation might live eternally with him . Thank you Lord for this gift of eternal life and help us to not forget the real reason for this day !!!
