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

At the most we are not all aware that the Devil has conjure up a plan to trap us and to put us at odd with God. However, if we search the scriptures we would realize that the Devil has an ultimate plan that we have got to neutralize.
The scriptures highlighted Job’s relationship with God as a man who was perfect and upright and one who feared God and hated evil (Job 1:1). Central to his belief was the fear of God and not wanting to curse God in any way shape or form, not himself, his wife nor his children. He was so conscious of this that after his children feasted he would send and sanctify them, and offer burnt sacrifices to God for them (Job 1:5). This he did continually as his role as shepherd of his family. Continue reading
LET EVERY person be loyally subject to the governing (civil) authorities. For there is no authority except from God [by His permission, His sanction], and those that exist do so by God’s appointment (Romans 13:1 AMP)
Paul clearly states in Romans 13:1 that only God can give authority to anyone, and so “EVERY person” (all believers) is obligated to be subject to the governing authorities. God Himself put these rulers in their places of power. They are there by God’s appointment.
He went on to say in verse 2 that those who disobey or rebels against the authorities are disobeying and rebelling against what God has ordained, and they will be punished. Continue reading
Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus.
(2 Timothy 1:7)
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) .
