Ready to Fight the Fight with Christ
Falling apart at the seams
Do you ever sweat over the small stuff or feel like you are falling apart at the seams? Have you ever lost your zeal and zest to persevere and press forward. Do things you need to do or call attention to pile up to where there is no interest because it would not really change things anyway? If you have experienced this, welcome aboard my boat. Please take a seat and we can share our struggles.
There are many days I feel like sitting down and giving up. Giving up on what? Giving up on pressing forward. This life is not always easy. In fact it can be darn hard. But giving up would be giving up on Jesus and his promises for me. His love endures forever Even when I am in my pity party or low down he is there. Oh what an awesome God I serve. A life without the Father is dull, dry and empty and without meaning. It is a dead end road and a long journey getting there.
Power in Christ
So what do I need to do? Well, I have to start proclaiming Gods Word and who I am in Christ. He has given me the gifts, the living truth and his Living Word that he will not forsake nor leave me. There is an enemy out there in dark places and in the World. There is a spiritual war going on. The enemy is looming to haul me out of here or anyone he can bring down. It is no kidding, for reels. He will use others in the world that are evil he has captured to fight with him. He is the looser. He knows it. Christ has overcome for us. Ignorance and or lack of knowledge and truth will keep many down. Many will be deceived. His intention is to take down anyone that loves Christ and deceive them. It is a battle of good and evil. It is obvious 'things' are not getting better in the World. If you take the L out of the word, world, you get Word. The Word of God is for our benefit to rise up in Christ and be in the world but not of the world.
The Goliaths, defeated!
The time is getting closer to the return of Jesus. It is time for this child to step up. It is not always easy street, practicing faith. It is hard when there are past due bills staring you in the face or the rent is short. The jobs and wages are way down and the electric bill is due in a couple of days with no paycheck in sight. These Goliaths can mow one down or make one get up and dress for battle. I have to take position as David did with Goliath. We all have Goliaths. They can stare us in the face. They can make us want to run and flee for cover. Christ has overcome for me so why do I fear?
Well I can look in the mirror and say it is the enemy. I can look in the mirror and decide I need to step it up. I need to shake off the dust. It is a new dawn. I get the Word of God, I open the pages. I confirm who I am in Christ. I know who I am, I speak it. I can say the devil made me do it he would love that, but I make some choices that put me in a position to be hurt. There is so much to learn and we never graduate until we graduate to eternity. I have to choose to not take it lying down. stand up, look up , reach up, claim what is mine in Jesus Christ. I have authority to boot the devil out of here, again. I have got to make the effort to pick up the heavy phone and talk to a prayer partner or a friend. It is not time to sigh and cry. I have done my share, and there will probably be more but what is the most important thing in my life is my relationship with Jesus. He WILL take care of me and all those past due bills. I do not think the creditor's can eat me for lunch. Thank You God. He is my all and my supply. I do not think he is going to hang me out to dry on a limb and say psyche.
There is no guaranteed pay check coming but was there ever? Life always changes. God is the only guarantee. Jobs, 401K, stocks, pension, sick leave, insurance, paid vacation are no guarantee. I did have those finer things in life. Today those guarantee's are gone, used up. I am not a lone ranger. God is not and He is my pay check. He is who I trust. So what is it going to be for me? I can choose to go the mile with or without Christ. I can believe in Him and His promises or bury my head in the sand because I want to hide. I have had to look in the mirror and decide what is it going to be? Because times are hard am I going to throw in the towel? That helps no one with the love of Christ. I need to keep focused on the prize, Jesus Christ. He paid the price so I am forgiven and have eternal life with him in Paradise. I need to be accountable to share good news of salvation and seed planting. Nothing will take me farther from self then helping someone else. I am here to love God and my neighbor as myself.
I Adore You
The closer I get to Jesus it seems the harder the enemy tries to edge in. Ive had it, I am done with his lies. I am the head not the tail. I am a child of the Almighty God. I am not going to wave a flag defeated by bills, landlord, job, bank, attorney, politician, taxes, government or the enemy.
Children of God we are redeemed and sanctified in Christ. We have a hope, a future, a supply, power, creativity, wisdom, peace. Our names are written in the Lambs Book of Life. When the chips are down and things do not look very pretty we have a promise because we are sons and daughters of the King of Kings. We can declare the living word of God in every area of our life. His power enables us to stand and show the world Jesus is in us and works through us. God has given us all power over the enemy, nothing will trample or hurt us because we have power and favor. Do not let ways of the World cause fear or disturb you because Christ has overcome for us.
The enemy is the tree of evil so chop him down with the power of Christ in you. Christ is the tree of life so chow down on His luscious and good fruit. Keep on- keeping on, even when you feel you can not, He can.
Please enjoy the video I left for you. Walk with Jesus.
My Love, Skye
