Let’s face it, wherever we are at this point in our lives –be it good or bad– is the result of our choices. The good news is that each day is a new day, and no matter what our past may be, we still have the opportunity to make the one free choice that could literally change everything.
God created in us this indescribable “void” or “yearning” for love that most of all spend our entire lives trying to find and fill mostly in the wrongs ways. God has designed us this way, and only He can fill the void and fill it to overflowing. — That is the abundant life!
The only offensive weapon in the entire Armory of God is the Sword of the Spirit. It is a “double-edged” sword meaning that one side is His Holy Word found in the Bible, the other side is the power of the Holy Spirit leading and guiding our hearts, our thoughts and our tongues. The only way for this weapon to be effective is in the daily personal journey with Jesus Christ. The power of life and death is in the tongue.
What are fiery darts and how does the shield of faith quench them? Everyday we can expect fiery darts (flaming arrows) to come blazing at us from every direction. Some of the hottest are fired carelessly from the ones we care about the most, the key is holding, and thusly buliding, up the shield of faith.
The Holy Spirit is given to each of us. Gifts of the Holy Spirit are given by the Holy Spirit to bring the good news of Jesus Christ to all nations.
Day 9 – SHOD YOUR FEET- August 14th, 2013
and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. Ephesians 6:15
DAY 9 of 365 – SHOD YOUR FEET
Shod your feet with the Gospel of Peace. It is recognizing and turning obstacles into opportunities through out the day as God unfolds the day before us. Gospel means the story of Christ’s life and teachings, esp. as contained in the first four books of the New Testament, namely Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. Gospel of peace is the Good News of Jesus Christ.
· It is that Kingdom of God found within and around us — choosing the “effective will of God” in ourselves and to all in our sphere of influence.
God is “the Truth.” The Bible is the “truth about the Truth.” Theology is the “truth about the truth about the Truth.” Christian people live in these many truths about the Truth, and because of them, have not “the Truth.” Hungry, beaten, and drugged, we had forgotten theology and the Bible. We had forgotten the “truth about the Truth,”
ALL TRUE ROADS LEAD TO JESUS CHRIST
Anything that you allow to come in between you and your relationship with Christ has the potential to become an idol. DO NOT let your problems become your idol
DAY 6 of 365 -THE BREASTPLATE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS
This episode “The BREATPLATE” is about understanding the Righteousness we have in Jesus Christ in us through faith. Many Christians are overwhelmed with this sense of being totally unworthy. It is a lie straight from the Enemy’s camp. However, by standing and speaking aloud the truth of God’s word and by the power of the Holy Spirit we come to know we are MORE THAN CONQUERORS in Christ Jesus.
What do you do when fear grips your heart with anxiety and envelopes your being with sheer panic? Frozen with fear at what to do next there still remains in us “free choice.” The choice is to surrender to the fear or surrender to trust in God despite what we see going on in our world. To rise above the fear (and anxiety) requires focus.
