I want to tell the truth and shame the devil. It’s not always easy to have peace, or joy but it is something that is essential in this Christian Life. I want to encourage you ladies not to let life and it’s experiences dictate your peace.
Let’s dive in.
I want to start by letting you know about a recent funeral experience that had me live this message before I shared it with you all, and share how God brought me through it and the blessing of seeing my brother. It’ll all make sense at the end.
Here we go!
News spread quickly. My uncle who was only recently admitted to the hospital passed away. A huge lump formed in my throat. Then anxiousness hit me as drama quickly spilled out. So many thoughts and memories flooded my brain. Then all of a sudden a tramatic childhood memory of a family member threathenning to kill me if he ever met me came back. Would he be there? It was his uncle too? The next week flew by and the drama continued. I prayed as often as thoughts of worry popped up. I prayed and even a friend prayed and fasted for the best outcome. Was I marching my family into harms way so many our worries loomed in my head. Prayerfully I entered in the funeral home and I was fighting against fear so much that I was shaking. I just kept praying and sat next to my husband and made it through the ups and downs of service.I will share more later.
There’s so many tactics that has happened in the last several years by evil people doing evil things happening that often times it’s almost more comforting to shrink back. The school shootings, grocery store massacres, daycare slaughters and fear mongering. Makes you want to hide behind all the reasons why not to try to fight well. Eventually becoming less adventurous, not really more aware but more anxious.
And before you tune this out and say here she goes talking about anxiety again. It’s necessary to deal with the elephant in the room. It used to be a time where you’d feel comfortable going to any outing or any big crowd or stadiums. It may just be me but I don’t think I’m the only one that experiences that uneasiness that comes with just doing things a little bit more adventurously. As the end of days gets closer it seems like evil imaginations evil practices evil things are ramping up to steal, kill, and destroy just like always.
I don’t want to capitalize on those things that are not Christ-like as to not give glory to them.
I do however want to expose the unfruitful works of darkness and encourage you ladies to stand therefor! Just as I mentioned in the previous podcasts about the importance of putting on the whole armor of God and I’ll say it again. It is vitally important to put on the whole armor of God so that your mind is shielded from doubt, so you are shielded from discouragement, and so that your mind is shielded from fear so that your ears don’t listen to the whispers and lies of satan. So that your heart is not deceived and led away to things that seem good but aren’t good for you. This is something that I’ve been praying about. It seems like it’s so easy not to have right perspective on things because there’s so many delusions going on nowadays.
Things are appearing one way but they’re certainly not that way. Everything is trying to get redefined by non-creators I hope you caught that.
Logic is out the window these days, but
Remember only God can define what He made.
We as the created cannot overthrow what God says and has set in motion for thousands and thousands of years. Many have tried in arrogance and an error to do just that.
Pretending like they know better than God and they don’t.
All those things that are ungodly, all things that are put in motion, and all those things that are coming to distract and destroy will fall before our Almighty God. Everything! Every high place, every High ranking person/ leader /official, everyone will have their reckoning before the Lord.
the Lord is soon to come so don’t get fall for being distracted.
It seems like evil is going to win sometimes but remember satan is already a defeated foe.
Christ is King and God is still God. Make the choice today to not let past tragedies and past mistakes and past knowledge of things that can go wrong affect your peace.
You aren’t a risk analyst so what does information do for you?
Information like that causes you to stop living in a way. The enemy comes subtly due to his cowardness and you owe to yourself not to stop living before you die because you don’t get any time refunds.
Live everyday to the fullest.
Make sure we are applying God’s word.
Philippians 3:13-14 NKJV says
Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 3:13-14 NKJV
The scriptures talk about having your heart and mind guarded by Christ Jesus and that’s paraphrasing so let’s go to the scriptures to see what it actually says.
Philippians 4:6-9 NKJV
Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things. The things which you learned and received and heard and saw in me, these do, and the God of peace will be with you.
Philippians 4:6-9 NKJV
Enjoy what is written for you.
Psalms 34:4 NKJV
I sought the Lord, and He heard me, And delivered me from all my fears.
Submit to God
Resist the devil
And live ladies.
Or you can keep getting fed air sandwiches and being told your full.
Let me tell you about how I was blessed to see
My brother who I seen for about 20 years.
Out of all of the things that I mentioned before this was really a highlight to all the craziness. It was like hugging my dad. He has been gone into glory for 21 years now. It was so good to see him and have dinner with him. Take photos share laughter and just do life together for a moment. At the end was bittersweet as I watch from a distance as he checked out at the register and then scan the door to see if he was still there. He wasn’t he had to get back on the road. So our family gathered our things and proceeded to our car were for a moment I was hoping to catch a glimpse of him still sitting in the parking lot but he was gone. So me and my grown self cried all the way home and some of the night feeling like I would never get to see him or hug him again because it had already been 21 years but that is so good and thankful that he put it on my husband’s heart and my brother’s heart to not ever lose touch again so I’m excited about our future and with that ladies. Always
check on another sister and always remember to trust God as you cry and repeat God bless you!!!!
