  • USE IT OR LOSE IT

         Luke 10:19..."Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.       Why is it that we are not seeing the results when we use our power and authority? Could it be because we are not close to the Father...maybe we have been following Him at a distance.     This is one of the most powerful Scriptures in the Word of God that has been given to those of us who know who we are IN Christ. We must be born again to have this authority over the power[...]

    PERFECT LOVE

            1 John 4:18...There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts our fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love.     There are many kinds of fears, doubts and worries coming through the spirit of fear, which comes through the evil one. He uses whatever means of fear he can use to convince you of being unworthy in the sight of God.   He uses fear to make you believe you will never make the mark. He uses fear to cause you to see every little ache, pain or sickness to lead you to your death bed.  [...]

    I DIDN'T SIGN UP FOR THIS!

        2 Cor. 1:3-4...Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.      As I grow In Christ I realize that this life is really not about me. The story may be, but truthfully, I have to say once in a while, "I didn't sign up for this!" I have learned that I may not have signed up but I did surrender self to Him and His way. I did ask Him to use me...and [...]

    PRAYING IS SPIRITUAL WARFARE

      I am asking everyone to agree with me in prayer today for all who have been held in bondage of an addiction that is life threatening. We who are followers of Jesus, have been given power and authority over all the enemy (Luke 10:19)...this includes every evil spirit sent to steal, kill and/or destroy the lives of our children and loved ones. The reason so many evil things that are happening  and  are hurting us is because we have not used our power and authority. Please today...Command by the authority of Jesus Christ that the spirits of drug/alcohol and all other [...]

    THE ADOPTION PROCESS

             Rom.8: 14-17....For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God. For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, "Abba, Father." The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs....heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together      We all know what 'ADOPTION' means....an outsider has chosen us to become His child, [...]

    THE AARONIC BLESSING NUMBERS 6:24-26

          Num.6:24-26...The LORD bless  you and keep you; The LORD make His face shine upon you, and be gracious to you; The LORD lift up His countenance upon you, and give you peace.   I love this Scripture above all Scriptures because this is telling me how precious I am to my heavenly Father, and how precious you are too. I heard a break down of the Hebrew meaning of this with more English meaning than actual Scripture in our Bible, as it  gives more insight to His love and wanted to share it with you all. THE LORD BLESS YOU.... May your heavenly Father (He [...]

    HOT MESS

       Jeremiah 29:11... For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.      We all have been or still are a HOT MESS!  I have heard that phrase much in the past couple of years and have now heard the definition of it. HOT MESS means ....A person who looks really good on the outside, yet is in a turmoil and mess on the inside.    I have been that person, and sometimes feel I am still that person. I truly believe this could be the definition of a work[...]

    CHOOSE TO HAVE A HAPPY HEART

         Prov.15:15...All the days of the afflicted are evil, but he who is of a merry heart has a continual feast.      We are given choices as to how we may think or feel, and how we choose makes a world of difference. Sometimes it gets hard to choose to think the right way and not allow offense to come in to bring us into strife and discontent.     Read a good example of this and want you to read it too!     Enjoy!    The story’s told of a wise old man. Every day he and his granddaughter would sit outside his gas [...]

    SPIRITUAL WARFARE IN THE UNKNOWN REALM

        2 Cor.4:4...But even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them.      Have you thought about or meditated on those Scriptures that tell us of the god of this age and the supernatural powerful beings called angels, and the power they possessed to do all they did in the earth?    Have you ever considered Daniel praying for help from God, and an angel was sent but did [...]
