Not Enough

Sometimes when I try to write the way I feel about the Lord...try to express what is so very deep down in my soul...I just can't seem to get it out!  The words I can think of just aren't enough.  When you think about His love...His mercy...His know that there is nothing you can say that adequately explains what you feel.  Pondering on this today it came to me that...

there aren't enough letters in our childlike alphabet...
there aren't enough colors in the crayon box of our minds...
there aren't enough notes in the keyboards of our souls...
to express in songs how much we love our Savior!

Jesus...truly...the sweetest name we know.  He is the one who gave us life so we could live forever.  Some day...very soon...we will see Him face to face.  Can you only imagine that?!!  Oh what a day...sweet glorious day...that is going to be for all of us!  But until that day comes...keep worshiping Him and praising Him.  Keep pressing in...holding on...believing with all that you have in Him.  Just keep on loving Him and know that He loves you.  And keep on spreading His Word...keep telling others how much He loves them and that...yes...He is coming back and they need to be ready.

He died for us so that we can live...forever and ever...with Him!

John 3:16
16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.

We must pray and defeat satan before he has the chance to pounce on us. Satan is just hiding in the shadows...the murky places of our life...trying to take root within our thoughts so he can beat us down and cover us in his slime...placing his (satans) purpose for us in our minds. Satans purpose for us...if we will listen to him...then becomes our mess...our pain...our defeat!

We live in a world that is filled with darkness...cosmic powers...spiritual forces of evil. When you break it all down that means...satan and all of his demons are running rampant...wreaking the air all around us and on the earth we walk on. We have all experienced the enemys tactics against us...the things he does are real.

I learned a long time ago that if you give satan just a bit of breathing room in your life that before long he will begin to live and thrive there. It takes him no time at all to get a foothold...eventually a death grip...on you.

But...if you are a Christian there is an just need to put it on daily...

The Whole Armor of God

Ephesians 6:10-18Amplified Bible, Classic Edition (AMPC)

10 In conclusion, be strong in the Lord [be empowered through your union with Him]; draw your strength from Him [that strength which His boundless might provides].
11 Put on God’s whole armor [the armor of a heavy-armed soldier which God supplies], that you may be able successfully to stand up against [all] the strategies and the deceits of the devil.
12 For we are not wrestling with flesh and blood [contending only with physical opponents], but against the despotisms, against the powers, against [the master spirits who are] the world rulers of this present darkness, against the spirit forces of wickedness in the heavenly (supernatural) sphere.
13 Therefore put on God’s complete armor, that you may be able to resist and stand your ground on the evil day [of danger], and, having done all [the crisis demands], to stand [firmly in your place].
14 Stand therefore [hold your ground], having tightened the belt of truth around your loins and having put on the breastplate of integrity and of moral rectitude and right standing with God,
15 And having shod your feet in preparation [to face the enemy with the [a]firm-footed stability, the promptness, and the readiness [b]produced by the good news] of the Gospel of peace.
16 Lift up over all the [covering] shield of [c]saving faith, upon which you can quench all the flaming missiles of the wicked [one].
17 And take the helmet of salvation and the sword that the Spirit [d]wields, which is the Word of God.
18 Pray at all times (on every occasion, in every season) in the Spirit, with all [manner of] prayer and entreaty. To that end keep alert and watch with strong purpose and perseverance, interceding in behalf of all the saints (God’s consecrated people).

Always remember...

We have the answer for anything that comes upon us and He is living inside of us...JESUS! He is our Rock...our fortress...our deliverer...our help when any trouble comes upon us in this life.

Walk On

I read this quote in Fervent this morning;

"Walk on. Have Faith. Fear not."

So good! God didn't call us to have a spirit of called us to life! If you are living in fear...without will start slowly sinking until before you know have been sucked down into total distress! Don't go there!! Stop living in fear and begin to live in faith!

As long as we are walking with the Lord...letting Him be our Guide and lead us...we can do what that quote says..."Walk on!" God won't let us down! He is there for us giving us strength through any situation we find ourself in. When fear grips us we need to battle on...get in the Word...Pray...allow the Lord to vanquish the fear...and carry on with what the Lord has for us.

2 Timothy 1:7 AMP
For God did not give us a spirit of timidity (of cowardice, of craven and cringing and fawning fear), but [He has given us a spirit] of power and of love and of calm and well-balanced mind and discipline and self-control.

Whatever you are going through at this time in your life...

God's. Got. It.

Give everything that's causing you stress or fear to the Lord.
give it all too Him!

1 Peter 5:7
Casting the whole of your care [all your anxieties, all your worries, all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares for you affectionately and cares about you watchfully.

The Lord really is our Rock...our Refuge. Call on Him always. Let Him give you the strength and faith you need to stand up and walk through the difficulties of your life.
