1Samuel 17:47 "And that all this assembly may know that the LORD saves not with sword and spear: for the battle is the LORD'S, and he will give you into our hands"
Think of the Lord as your body guard. It is the responsibility of the body guard to ensure the safety of the one he is required to protect. That is exactly the case with God. He fights your battles and makes sure you are safe when you let Him. Allow Him to fight your battles for you.
Colossians 1:16 (NKJV) “For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him.”
Everything begins with God. You were made by Him, you did not create yourself and until you understand that, life will never make sense. If you want to discover your purpose in life, don't turn to the world for an answer, but to God.
2 Corinthians 12:7 “And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above measure.”
As we all at one time or another face this in our lives and wonder why these things or circumstances come our way, don't doubt or allow our enemy to confuse you. God who loves you, has a wonderful plan for your life and if allowed will complete that plan.
James 1:19,20 "So then,my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath; 20 for the wrath of man does not produce the righteousness of God."
Sometimes you need to be quiet and listen to what God is saying. Trying to fix things in your own strength will only make the situation worse. Trying to reason out why you are facing the challenges in your life will not bring the solution. Trust God, listen to His voice and know that He is able to bring you through every challenge, victoriously.
James 1:16,17 "Do not be deceived, my beloved brethren. 17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning."
Do not believe the lie of the devil. God is a good God and He does not want to harm you. He may allow certain things to come into your life that are uncomfortable and challenging but He will always give you the strength to overcome every problem. You need to be firm in the knowledge that God cares for you and that every good thing in your life is a gift from Him.
Matthew 7:16-20 "You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles? Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Therefore by their fruits you will know them"
The fruit exposes the root! The fruit in one’s life acts as a mirror upon the heart; it reflects the substance within. Don’t follow the flesh, follow the fruit! Be a fruit inspector in your life and in those around you!
1Cor 2:9-10 - “But as it is written: ‘Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him.’ But God has revealed them to us by His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God.”
Many Christians do not realize just how deep of a relationship they can actually have with God and just how much God really wants to bless them. Can you believe that because of what Jesus did on the cross, we have full access to God through the Holy Spirit? God is just looking for people who are desperate enough to go after Him!
Colossians 2:10: "And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power"
Praise the Lord that I am not a freak accident of nature, who just crawled up onto the beach somewhere, somehow, only having a magic wand called time – siem-salla-biem and the frog changes into a man. Between me and that goo, there is an entire zoo. No, No I am created and put together by God; yes I am handmade, thus complete.
1 Peter 5:8 “Be sober, be vigilant, because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.”
If there is balance in your life, the devil can’t come in. If you have self control, he will not be able to lead you astray. Be sober, be vigilant and remember that the victory of God is in you. The wisdom of God is in you. The power of God is in you.
