Praise your way through


While laying in bed the enemy tried to attack me with worry and anxiety early this morning. At first I just lay there. Thoughts churning in my head. For awhile I found myself meditating on the wrong thing.

Then my stomach started to tie itself in knots. I began to feel nauseated. But, then this still small voice gently reminded me. Pay attention to what you’re thinking about. Holy Spirit, my helper showed up.

And I opened my mouth and began to worship my God. Telling Him how awesome He is.
Lord I thank you that you love me. I thank you that you are for me. I thank you that you love yourself some Tomeca. I thank you that you are my righteousness. I thank you that you are my shield and my buckler. I thank you that you are my peace. I thank you that you are my strength. I thank you that in you I find safety. I thank you that in you I find rest.

Lord you are good! Lord you are mighty! There’s nobody like Jehovah. You’re my God.
You’re the almighty God. You’re the one true God. I join in with the angels and I cry holy, holy, holy. You’re my way maker. You’re Jehovah Jireh. Before the situation came you knew I would go through it. This didn’t come as a shock to you or take you by surprise. You already made a way of escape for me. I lean into you this morning.

I put my trust in you today and everyday. I refuse to worry or be anxious about anything.

Let me tell you after a short while I felt peace. Not my peace but the peace of God came in.

Philippians 4:6
Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.

Philippians 4:7
And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

I don’t know what you’re facing this morning and I don’t know all the answers, but I know the One who does.
He loves us this morning. He has our backs. We are not alone. He hears and He cares.

Father,
We lean on, rely on and confidently put our trust in you this morning.
Thank you that you have our best interests at heart and that you will bring us out with the victory.

In Jesus name
Amen

Sounds crazy right?


Have you ever talked to yourself? I have and I do. I not only talk to myself but I answer myself too. Some would say call the patty wagon this chick is off her rocker or her meds one. Somebody get her a patch, drip or pill. She needs help.

But, no I’m not. You see the enemy comes at us all the time with situations and circumstances that come to steal not only our joy but our peace as well. he throws everything at us but the kitchen sink. You know ; when all hell is breaking loose and some crazy thought just pops into our head. Or you are just doing whatever and the craziest thought just crosses your mind? I mean it comes at you out of nowhere.

Well, did you know that you don’t have to take every thought that the enemy would try and present to you. his greatest weapon, the one he uses most often is the power of suggestion.

At those times; open your mouth and say out loud, ” I don’t take that thought, that’s not mine” Cast the thought down. You may have to do it over and over because he’s a persistent little bugger.
But the word says resist him and he’ll flee.

2 Corinthians 10:4
(For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)

2 Corinthians 10:5
Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;

James 4:7
Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

The enemy would love to have us operating in our flesh.
You know the expression, ” I feel some type of way”? I used to say that all the time until I learned that if I keep the enemy in the arena of faith, he can’t touch me. he’s constantly trying to get us to look at the situation. Feel the hurt. Etc.

My emotions don’t get to dictate to me how I’m going to feel. How it looks is temporal. Subject to change. But the word of God is my higher truth. When I’m going through something I have learned to go to God’s word and find out what He has to say. When I find it, I speak that and that only.

So many days I had to keep my mouth shut so that I wouldn’t disqualify myself from what God was trying to do in my life.

Now I’m not saying I’m some super human who doesn’t feel anything but I am saying; I don’t let my feelings rule over me. I make a conscience decision to live from the position of victory and only the Word of God has the power to keep me their. It’s not in my own strength.

These practices didn’t happen over night. I’ve listened to hours upon hours of teaching on words and the tongue.
I sometimes still have to remember to put what I’ve learned into use. . The enemy would love to have us laid up with a straight jacket on not knowing if we were coming or going. But he is a liar. And the father of them.

John 8:44
Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own:for he is a liar, and the father of it.

Please know today that you are going to make it! You win! You are not alone!
If you are not in a good bible based church that teaches you the word of God ask Holy Spirit to lead you to one in your local area. You need a place to fellowship. You need a support system.

My husband and I prayed and Holy Spirit led us to our home church. Our lives are being transformed and changed.

If you don’t know Jesus as your personal savior- pray this prayer with me. Speak it out loud so you can hear it with your own ears.

“Lord Jesus, I ask You to come into my life and forgive me of all my sins. I confess my sins before You this day. I denounce Satan and all his works. I confess Jesus as the Lord of my life. Thank You for saving me. I believe with my heart and I confess with my mouth that You rose from the dead. I am saved. Write my name in the Lamb’s book of life. Today is my God-day with the Lord Jesus! I pray this prayer to the Father in the name of Jesus.
Amen.”

Welcome to the Body of Christ!!!!!
