Be Strong in the Lord

Be Strong in the LordIn 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).  Ephesians 6:10 AMP

 

The Lord Is Your Strength

We must realize that part of Satan’s plan for end-time believers is to make us weary. Daniel 7:25 gives a vivid description of a vision the prophet Daniel received regarding the last days: “And he ‘shall wear out the saints of the Most High'” (AMP).

But God wants you to be encouraged. Romans 8:37 (AMP) gives Christians this good news: “Yet amid all these things we are more than conquerors and gain a surpassing victory through Him Who loved us.” ‘More than conquerors’ means that before trouble ever starts, we already know who wins. I like that, don’t you?

We can purpose in our hearts to maintain such an intimate relationship with God through prayer and His Word that we are constantly being strengthened by the power of His promises. Intimacy with God produces strong Christians who can outlast the devil!

Live your life totally confident in God’s strength and have no fear of the trials that can produce weary warriors and fainting saints. Remain strong ‘in Him’ and in the power of His might.

Prayer Starter: God, You alone are my strength. I won’t let Satan make me a weary Christian, but I’ll remain strong in my intimacy with You.

Draw your strength from God as you draw near to Him, through studying the Word of God and in prayer. Strengthen your relationship with God and He will give you strength for whatever you face.

Fight the Good Fight

Slide 1Fight the Good fight of faith; lay hold of the eternal life to which you were summoned and for which you confessed the good confession of faith before many witnesses.   1 Timothy 6:12 AMP

 

We are to “fight the good fight of faith” against the enemy – but what does that look like practically? Here are six key strategies:

1. Think aggressively. Plan and calculate, like a general preparing for battle, how to engage and defeat the enemy.

2. Pray fervently. Hebrews 4:16 instructs us to approach God’s throne confidently. Step forward with confidence and tell Him what you need.

3. Speak fearlessly. First Peter 4:11 (AMP) says, “Whoever speaks, [let him do it as one who utters] oracles of God.” You and I are to have a spiritually commanding voice against the forces of evil.

4. Give abundantly. The way we give is the way we receive (see Luke 6:38). Live a life of generosity.

5. Work intently. Whatever we put our hand to, we need to do it aggressively (see Eccl. 9:10). Stir yourself up in the Holy Spirit and get the job done.

6. Love unconditionally. As children of God, we must love others as God loves us, unconditionally and sacrificially.

Take these steps, and when the enemy comes, you’ll be filled with God’s power and be unbeatable.

Prayer Starter: Lord, I don’t want to sit back and miss the fight You’ve called me to. As I move forward, show me how to apply these six strategies in my fight against the enemy.

Let Your Light So Shine

Let Your Light ShineLet your light so shine before men that they may see your moral excellence and your praiseworthy, noble and good deeds and recognize and honor and praise and glorify your Father Who is in heaven.   Matthew 5:16 AMP

I recently heard a bible teacher say if you aren’t sure what God’s plan is for your life, you can at least shine for Him. So for now, I will stand for Him and SHINE!

A Nation on Our Knees

Get Nations Back on their Feet First Get down on our kneesA nation on our knees

Someone has said that if Christians really understood the full extent of the power we have available through prayer, they might truly pray for our country the USA.

During WWII there was an adviser to Churchill who organized a group of people who dropped what they were doing every day at a prescribed hour for one minute to pray collectively for the safety of England, its people and peace. There is now a group of people organizing the same thing here in America. If you would like to participate … Every evening at 9:00PM Eastern Time (8:00 PM Central) (7:00 PM Mountain)(6:00 PM Pacific), stop whatever you are doing and spend one minute praying for the safety of the United States and for a return to a Godly nation. If you know anyone else who would like to participate, please pass this along. Our prayers are the most powerful asset we have.

If my people who are called by my name will humble themselves 2 Chronicles 7 14

God’s purpose gives us value. (Proverbs 19:21)

God’s purpose gives us victory. (Psalm 139:13-16)

God’s purpose gives you vitality. (2 Timothy 1:12, John 16:33)

Many plans are in a man’s mind, but it is the Lord’s purpose for him that will stand. Proverbs 19:21 AMP

The Lord will perfect that which concerns me; Your mercy and loving-kindness, O Lord, endure forever-forsake not the works of Your own hands. Psalm 138:8 AMP

The Lord has made everything (to accommodate itself and contribute) to its own end and His own purpose-even the wicked (are fitted for their role) for the day of calamity and evil. Proverbs 16:4 AMP

So shall My word be that goes forth out My mouth: it shall not return to Me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please and purpose, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it. Isaiah 55:11 AMP

For David, after he had served God’s will and purpose and counsel in his own generation, fell asleep and was buried among his forefathers, and he did see corruption and undergo putrefaction and dissolution for the grave. Acts 13:36 AMP

We are assured and know that all things work together and are for good to and for those who love God and are called according to His design and purpose. Romans 8:28 AMP

Making known to us the mystery of His will. In accordance  with His good pleasure which He had previously purposed and set forth in Him, for the maturity of the times and the climax of the ages to unify all things and head them up and consummate them in Christ, things in heaven and things on the earth. In Him we also were made God’s heritage and we obtained an inheritance; for we had been foreordained in accordance with His purpose, Who works out everything in agreement with the counsel and design of His will. Ephesians 1:9-11 AMP

God is Awesome!

God is in ControlGod heard my prayers, saw my tears and felt the anguish in my heart. God sent Angels to help me with the smallest of details. God used the US Postal Service, Emails, FaceBook, the telephone and prayers to send me the help I needed. In His love for me, He knew what I needed before I did and He met my needs. I am in awe of His love for me and the wondrous joy and peace He gives me from having Him in my heart. God even arranged to send me signs to let me know He was with me.

His grace and love are all I need and yet He gives me more. Thank you God for loving me. Thank you God for being with me in my darkest hours. Thank you God for sending Angels to watch over me and to help me. Thank you God for Your mighty power to OVERCOME the world and everything in it. Thank you God for freedom, liberty and justice. I stand on the Word of God and claim Your promises. I give You all the glory in the name of Jesus!

My best friend and soul-mate is now in heaven with the Lord. I grieve with the loss of my husband, but know that through God’s love and mercy, Gary is now at peace. God is with me and comforting me. The outpouring of love and friendship from family and friends have been a true blessing. It warms my heart to know that Gary touched so many people’s lives. He was a good man, a good husband, a good father, a good American and a good friend. I am honored to be his wife. I love you Gary!
