Your Weapons Of Warfare

It’s been weeks since I’ve felt a desire to write, anything. For someone like me, who is constantly writing in many different forms, that’s saying a lot. But, this morning while praying for a friends grandmother, the Lord placed something heavily on my heart that I want to share.

Many Christians are unable to fight the battles the devil forces them into because they are unaware of the weapons they possess to defeat the attacks of the enemy. The Word is full of wonderful and beautiful stories, but it is also bursting with tactics on how to destroy the adversary.

Regardless of what you are up against, you possess, right now, the ability to win the fight. The Lord gave us promises to stand upon in every situation of our lives, but unfortunately so many Christians are unaware of those promises, resulting in heartbreak, loss and great difficulty.

What do I mean?

Desert, Prison, Promise

I type a letter to the Lord, my fingers furiously flying over the keyboard: “Why, God? Why?” I write to Him.

Those words, the questions of why, I ask more than nearly any other. There are just so many things in my life I don’t understand, so many situations that make absolutely no sense to me at all. I’m in the middle of one right now, in this very moment even as I sit here and write these words.

While I frustratingly wrote to the Lord, a picture flashed through my mind: Joseph sitting in prison followed by the image of the Israelites walking through the desert. The Spirit then said to me:

Everyone has their time in the desert. Many have to go through prison to fulfill their prophecies. Continue reading “Desert, Prison, Promise”

He Is Moving

The Lord is moving.

We may not always be able to see it, feel it, touch it, but He is on the move. God is often doing things behind the scenes that sometimes takes weeks, months, years to come to fruition, but all along, He is moving. Continue reading “He Is Moving”

Don’t Stop Standing

There are so many Christians who have grown weary in their well doing. So many have prayed without ceasing, fasted regardless of difficulty and continued to be sensitive to the Spirit even when the world tells them to turn from Him. So many have continued to stand through exhaustion, fight through discouragement and rejoice in the midst of their continual battles.

It truly is incredible to witness the obedience of God’s Remnant.

Today, I feel the need to encourage those who are feeling the weight of the battles upon their shoulders and the weariness that has crept in on all sides: you will witness your miracle and live your breakthrough.

In The Darkness

There are times in my life when I push against the Lord, when I become so frustrated with what is going on around me that I forget the power that is within me. I allow the world to quiet God’s voice and cloud my vision from seeing the Truth.

He has never failed me, yet sometimes I find myself still wondering if whatever current battle I’m in is the one I will lose, the time when my God just doesn’t step in.

This thought process does nothing but harm me and hinder me from doing what I am called to do. If He has never failed me, why would He start now? Continue reading “In The Darkness”

Resistance

Over the past several days it’s been on my heart to pray against the spirit of resistance. I’m not only talking about the political resistance we see marching on Washington, although that is part of it, I’m primarily feeling a need to pray against the spiritual resistance that’s been infiltrating our daily lives.

Why Are We Worrying?

What is our initial reaction to bad news? Is it terror? Is it anxiety, worry, stress? If we call ourselves Christians and we say we fully trust in the Lord, then when the world bangs on our door, should we, for even a second, worry about what is on the other side?
