I will love thee, O LORD, my strength. The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower. I will call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies (Psalm 18:1-3)
After much discouragement from the most unlikely places these past few weeks, Continue reading
For the weapons of our warfare are not physical [weapons of flesh and blood], but they are mighty before God for the overthrow and destruction of strongholds, [Inasmuch as we] refute arguments and theories and reasonings and every proud and lofty thing that sets itself up against the [true] knowledge of God; and we lead every thought and purpose away captive into the obedience of Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One)(2 Corinthians 10:4-5 AMP)
We are engaged in a battle, but we are not fighting against people (flesh and blood). We are fighting against forces and authorities, and against rulers of darkness and powers in the heavenlies. Satan is our enemy. Continue reading
- I place all my trust and confidence in the Lord and I put no confidence in the flesh – I declare myself to be dependent upon God. I know that I cannot save myself, nor set myself free by my own efforts and resources. I know that apart from Christ I can do nothing. I know that all temptation is an attempt to get me to live my life independently from God, but God has provided a way of escape.
- I consciously and deliberately choose to submit to God and resist the devil by denying myself, picking up my cross daily and following Jesus. I know that my soul was not designed by God to function as master. I know that rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and insubordination is an iniquity and idolatry.
Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus.

For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.
And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. Continue reading

Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain. And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible. I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air: But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway (Philippians 3:14) .

“…wait for the promise of the Father, which, saith he, ye have heard of me. For John truly baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence” (Acts 1:4-5)
The Holy Spirit, who is the Spirit of God, is a promise from God, our Heavenly Father, to all who have been genuinely born from above. He comes to live within you and to give you eternal life. Continue reading
