Where There Is Pollution, There Is A Solution

God gave me the phrase yesterday as my sister and I were talking. Complaining about problems in our world: race, schools, workplace, homes, marriages, children, churches, and the government will not resolve the issue. Believers are created to bring the light wherever we set our feet. God has given us the keys to living life in hopeless situations. Christ is the hope of glory; we don’t need to look further but what is within us.

For solutions, seek God’s guidance, fast, stand in the gap/intercede for others, and listen to prophets/teachers that give the word in line with the word of God. David, Esther, Moses, and Jehoshaphat are examples in the bible concerning turning problems into solutions.

In 1 Samuel 30, when David and his men returned, their wives, families, and possessions were taken from them. David and the men cried loud until they were weak and couldn’t cry. After weeping, David strengthened himself in God and inquired of Lord. David asked God “Should I pursue them?” God said to pursue, and you shall recover all. So David and his men pursued them and recovered all; they ate and danced from the goods they received.

Esther had to save her Jewish people from being killed because of a decree that went out by the King due to the evil influence of Haman. She proclaimed a three-day fast. Finally, she approached the King and delivered her people. Read the book of Esther.

Exodus 32:9-14 Easy Read Version: 9 The Lord said to Moses, “I have seen these people, and I know that they are very stubborn. They will always turn against me. 10 So now let me destroy them in anger. Then I will make a great nation from you.” 11 But Moses begged the Lord his God, “Lord, don’t let your anger destroy your people. You brought them out of Egypt with your great power and strength. 12 But if you destroy your people, the Egyptians will say, ‘God planned to do bad things to his people. That is why he led them out of Egypt. He wanted to kill them in the mountains. He wanted to wipe them off the earth.’ So don’t be angry with your people. Please change your mind! Don’t destroy them. 13 Remember Abraham, Isaac, and Israel. These men served you, and you used your name to make a promise to them. You said, ‘I will make your people as many as the stars in the sky. I will give your people all this land as I promised. This land will be theirs forever.'” 14 So the Lord felt sorry for the people. He did not do what he said he might do—he did not destroy them.

Jehoshaphat, when going into battle, received a word from God after fasting and praying. 2 Chronicles 20:20 Jehoshaphat stood and said, “Hear me, O Judah and you inhabitants of Jerusalem: Believe in the Lord your God, and you shall be established; believe His prophets, and you shall prosper.” 21 And when he had consulted with the people, he appointed those who should sing to the Lord, and who should praise the beauty of holiness, as they went out before the army and were saying: “Praise the Lord, For His mercy endures forever.”

Where there is pollution, there is a solution.

PrayerLord, thank you for giving me the word of God as a guide for solving everyday challenges. I repent for complaining about problems in my life. You created me to be the light in the darkness. You left the Holy Spirit to lead and guide me into all truth. Christ is in me, the hope of glory. I seek you, God, when problems come. I intercede for others. I fast and receive the word of the prophets in line with God’s word to receive solutions to problems. You always cause me to triumph through you, God. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

To Receive Beyond and Above, Faith Works By Love!

The phrase came to me as God has been dealing with me about love. It starts at home. It is easy to love someone you don’t live with every day. When you pray for God to check your spirit, He will do just that. God revealed to me areas I can improve. One day I was talking to my mom, and she told me, “I’m not you, and you are not me.” God put a check in my spirit and said she was right. Sometimes it can seem like we are saying what is right, not realizing it is doing more harm than good. God is correcting me every day because in order to receive on a higher level, our love walk has to go to a higher level. To whom much is given, much is required (Luke 12:48). Pray for people but make sure we are walking in love with them as well; they both operate together. You will see things transform in you mostly.

Galatians 5:6 Easy Read Version: 6 When someone belongs to Christ Jesus, it is not important if they are circumcised or not. The important thing is faith—the kind of faith that works through love.

I watched a movie dealing with two sisters. One of the sisters didn’t go to church and seemed to have everything in her favor. Due to a divorce, she moved in with her sister, that went to church and was married. She brought her two sons along with her. Her sister told her it was not fair she got a wealthy husband and children. She had been going to church, doing everything right and still couldn’t have children. She said it wasn’t fair and there is no God. Her sister told her don’t say that, “I just believe things will turn out as it should in the end.” She had more faith than her sister that went to church. She got what she spoke. It turned out great for her in the end because she had faith and discovered what she was searching for was in her all along.

Only through Jesus’ blood are we even worthy to approach the throne. Luke 17:10 Living Translation says: In the same way, when you obey me, you should say, ‘We are unworthy servants who have simply done our duty.'”

The sister that did everything right and went to church felt entitled. However, her heart was not right. God resists the proud but gives grace to the humble. Humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, and in due time he will exalt you (1 Peter 5:5-6). The other sister knew she didn’t deserve it, but she had faith that everything would turn out great. The movie is almost the flip side of the prodigal Son and his elder brother in Luke 15, starting at verse 11. The prodigal son was not afraid to ask for his portion. However, he was not mature in handling his money and lived a wild life without God. The prodigal Son came to himself after he lost everything. Just like the younger sister came to herself after leaving her husband in the movie. He humbled himself, and God restored him. The elder son was unhappy because he served his father and didn’t live a wild and riotous life. He felt his brother didn’t deserve a feast for bad behavior. The eldest sister in the movie was the same way. The goodness of God leads to repentance (Romans 2:4). Remember, love is not boastful or self-seeking (Read 1 Corinthians 13). The only thing we should boast about is God. Our righteous acts are like filthy rags before God (Isaiah 64:6).

Love is also patient. Through faith and patience, we inherit the promise (Hebrews 6:12). Thanksgiving/praise, preparation, and expectancy are actual waiting. I like the phrase Gloria Copeland used “Faith takes it, but patience keeps it.” You take it when you pray; then, with patience, you will keep it alive while you are waiting.

To receive beyond and above, faith works by love.

Prayer: Lord, thank you for loving me when I don’t deserve it. God, I repent for feeling entitled to receive something from you because of my righteous acts. I deserve hell, but you sent your Son Jesus to die for me. Now I have eternal life. Even on my best behavior, it is meaningless. It is an honor for you to receive me as your child. God perfect me in love. I receive the promise through faith and patience. In Jesus’ name! Amen.

To Overcome What is Wicked, Faith Is The Ticket!

Friday morning, God gave me the blog phrase. I started rejoicing and got encouraged. There has been a lot of evil in this world and in our cities. It can cause fear, anxiety, helplessness, anger, and discouragement. We can do everything we can in the natural. However, to combat evil, we must tap into the supernatural through faith in Jesus and trusting God’s word.

Romans 1:16-17 King James Version: 16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and to the Greek.17 For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.

Galatians 3: 11 King James Version: 11 But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident: for, The just shall live by faith.

Hebrews 10:38 Easy Read Version: 38 The person who is right with me will live by trusting in me. But I will not be pleased with the one who turns back in fear.”

The devil uses fear to keep us bound, but believers use faith to counteract evil. The wicked flee when no one pursues, but the righteous are bold as a lion (Proverbs 28:1). Instead of running away scared when crime, sickness, disease, or any evil happens in your life, run to it believing and speaking the word of God. What is taunting you like a Goliath in your life day and night? Do like David in 1 Samuel 17. David said, “You come to me with a sword and a spear, but I come to you in the name of the Lord.” David said, “This day (write the date), the Lord will deliver you into my hands.” David used what he had and slayed the giant. Mark 11:24 NIV: Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. It was already yours in the spirit realm when you prayed, so act like it.

Our battle is in the spirit realm when it comes to evil. Ephesians 6:12 12 states, For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. We have to put our spiritual armor on every day. Don’t be like the majority; take your authority!

To overcome what is wicked, faith is the ticket!

Prayer: Lord, thank you for sending your Son Jesus to die for me. Because Jesus conquered evil, I have eternal life and dominion over the earth. I repent for running away in fear when evil comes. I run to my giant and face it head-on without fear, trusting and believing in the word of God. I am more than a conqueror through Jesus Christ! In Jesus’ name! Amen.

Shout With A Trumpet Blast! You Are Free At Last!

The phrase came for the blog during my quiet time. Many of us are under attack. The answer is in our praise. As believers we are not like the majority, we take our authority with putting on the armor God (Ephesians 6:10-18) and through praise.

Numbers 10:9 NIV Version  When you go into battle in your own land against an enemy who is oppressing you, sound a blast on the trumpets. Then you will be remembered by the Lord your God and rescued from your enemies .

Psalm 68:1-6 NIV Version: May God arise, may his enemies be scattered; may his foes flee before him.May you blow them away like smoke—as wax melts before the fire,may the wicked perish before God.But may the righteous be glad and rejoice before God;  may they be happy and joyful.Sing to God, sing in praise of his name,  extol him who rides on the clouds[b];rejoice before him—his name is the Lord.A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows,    is God in his holy dwelling.God sets the lonely in families, he leads out the prisoners with singing.

Psalm 34:1-8 NIV Version: I will extol the Lord at all times; his praise will always be on my lips.
I will glory in the Lord; let the afflicted hear and rejoice.Glorify the Lord with me; let us exalt his name together.I sought the Lord, and he answered me; he delivered me from all my fears.Those who look to him are radiant;
    their faces are never covered with shame.This poor man called, and the Lord heard him; he saved him out of all his troubles.The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear him, and he delivers them. Taste and see that the Lord is good;  blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.

My Aunt Mary told me that God revealed to her this is “The Year Of Jubilee” (year of release and rest). I believe because the word of God says believe in the prophet and you will succeed/ prosper (2 Chronicles 20: 20}. God has used her to prophesy in my life and it came to pass. Anything that is binding you, receive your release in Jesus name!

God gave me Vickie Winans’ “Shake Yourself Loose”. The lyrics are powerful. She gave her testimony how she had several ulcers and was 200 pounds. She said she would cry everyday for 6 months straight due to problems in her life. She heard T.D. Jakes’ message and he said you can shake yourself loose. Vickie Winans did it through praise and she was loosed from her affliction.

I love the part of the song that says: Shake loose everything that binds you up, who told you that you can’t make it? When God says that you can shake it. Shake loose, everything that binds you up. Praise him like its your last chance. Get up and do the David dance. I heard you were feeling down, that Satan had you bound. No you don’t have to stay. Yes, you can leave today. Just like in the bible days, when men began to pray. Those jail cells start to shaking. Those chains they start to breaking. I want you to know you’re about to break through. Jesus took the keys and gave them to you. Don’t let the enemy keep you in bondage. Praise your way through! Come on and shake loose. Every worry, every care. Praise your way through! Come on and shake loose. Those chains that bind you . Should only remind you. Praise your way through! Come on and shake loose. Problems, know that He will solve them. Praise your way through, come on and shake loose!

Shout with a trumpet blast! You are free at last!

Prayer: Lord, thank you for being my glory and the lifter of my head. I put on my spiritual armor everyday and use my weapon of praise to the defeat the devil. I repent for allowing my situation to keep me bound. I declare “The Year of Jubilee.” I shout with the voice of triumph because I am free. Who the Son sets free is free indeed! Thanks be to God who always causes me to triumph through Christ Jesus! In Jesus name! Amen!

Be On One Accord, In The Lord.

God brought back one of the phrases I kept a month back as I spent time alone with God. The devil loves chaos, division, and confusion because where there is unity, there is strength. We have to be in line with the word of God for the power of God to manifest.

Agree with the word of God. A powerful Pentecostal Evangelist, R.W. Schambach, said in one of his sermons: “One minute we are speaking the word of God then the next minute we let our flesh get in the way of the spirit.” Remember, the flesh cannot inherit the kingdom of God, only the spirit through faith. Our soul must align with the spirit to receive from God. James 1:8 says a double-minded person is unstable in all His ways and will not receive anything from God. Speak what the word of God says to be in one accord with God.

We should be in harmony with others during different stages in their lives. Romans 12:15 says rejoice with those that rejoice and weep with those who weep. Philippians 2: 2-5 Amplified Version: 2 make my joy complete by being of the same mind, having the same love [toward one another], knit together in spirit, intent on one purpose [and living a life that reflects your faith and spreads the gospel—the good news regarding salvation through faith in Christ]. 3 Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit [through factional motives, or strife], but with [an attitude of] humility [being neither arrogant nor self-righteous], regard others as more important than yourselves. 4 Do not merely look out for your interests but also the interests of others. 5 Have this same attitude in yourselves which was in Christ Jesus [look to Him as your example in selfless humility]; God can flow through our churches when we have love and concern for each other.

God led me to Nehemiah Chapters 1-5. Nehemiah fasted, repented, mourned, and prayed for the people of Israel because Jerusalem was in ruins. Nehemiah found favor with the King because of God. The people stood together in unity. They faced a lot of ridicule and people trying to stop them from rebuilding the wall. But they stood firm, trusting in God, ready to fight. They rebuilt the wall in 52 days.

We need each other. 1 Corinthians 12:21 NIV: The eye cannot say to the hand, “I don’t need you!” And the head cannot say to the feet, “I don’t need you!” Our body, every part, functions together. Deuteronomy 32:30 says with the help of God, one can chase 1000 away two can chase 10,000. Strength is in numbers, where two touch and agree it is done, rather good or bad. If it is not in line with God’s word, do not agree with it. Amos 3:3 says how can two walk together except they agree. Every aspect of life, including our relationship with God, He will not work if it is against His nature, character, and His will for our lives.

Hold fast to what God says because the wrong confession glorifies the devil; confessing the word of God glorifies God. Keep meditating, hearing, and confessing the word of God, so your soul aligns with your spirit for results. Do everything out of love, and we can live in unity because God is love; where love rules, the power of God operates. We need each other, and when we unite in faith, more can be done in less time.

Be on one accord in the Lord.

Prayer: Lord, thank you for your love that you sent your Son Jesus for my redemption. I repent for not walking in love and unity with others. I speak your word only, not the circumstance, so I can receive and be in harmony with God. I get with other believers to pull in heavy loads I can’t carry alone. Thank you for placing people in my life for your purpose and glory. I give you the praise and honor. In Jesus’ name! Amen.

Don’t Be Like The Majority. Take Your Authority!

We have heard the phrase used for the military: “The few. The proud” As believers, we are soldiers in the army of God. Genesis 1:28 Amplified Version says: 28 And God blessed them [granting them specific authority] and said to them, “Be fruitful, multiply, and fill the earth, and subjugate it [putting it under your power]; and rule over (dominate). We don’t have to put up with evil and darkness when we have the Holy Spirit and the light of God’s word.

1 Peter 2:9 King James Version: 9 But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.

Peculiar means distinctive, different from the rest. We don’t have to accept anything that is not God’s character and nature, letting it rule over us. We rule as believers by submitting to God’s word, resisting the devil, and then the devil flees from us (James 4:7). I heard an anointed preacher who said everyone is always saying, “The devil is busy.” The preacher said, “Yes, the devil is busy because we are busy running our mouths speaking the wrong thing.” “Why don’t you say the devil is under our feet and speak the word of God over the situation?”

As royalty, I decree a thing according to the word of God, and it is established (Job 22:28). We are made in the image and likeness of God, who spoke the world in existence and said “Let there be light” in darkness. We as believers can do the same and say let there be healing, restoration, love, protection, peace, provision, deliverance, wisdom, and light in our darkest situation. No matter how it looks, take your authority. Stop letting conditions dominate you and cause you to live in fear. Get mature people of God to intercede for you when you are weak and need someone to talk to. There is strength in numbers. We need each other.

Romans 15:1-2 Message Version: 15 1-2 Those who are strong and able in the faith need to step in and lend a hand to those who falter and not just do what is most convenient for us. Strength is for service, not status. Each one of us needs to look after the good of the people around us, asking ourselves, “How can I help?”

Don’t be like the majority. Take your authority!

Prayer: Lord, thank you for giving me authority over the earth. I repent for failing as a ruler over the earth and my life. I take my stand by submitting to God, resisting the devil, and the devil flees from me. I am peculiar and set apart from the rest because I serve a true and living God. Thank you, God, for giving me the Holy Spirit to lead and guide me into all truth. Thank you for the people you have placed in my life to strengthen me because we need each other. I take my stand against darkness and rule in God In Jesus’ name! Amen!

Stay Lit With The Holy Spirit!

Most people use the term “lit” when something is exciting, or when they get a buzz from drinking or drugs. As believers in Jesus Christ, we can stay “lit” by allowing the Holy Spirit to transform us. The phrase came about by spending time with God during my quiet time.

We can stay “lit” by being in the presence of God, worshipping and praising God for who He is.

Psalm 16:11 NIV Version: 11 You tell me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence,

with eternal pleasures at your right hand.

We can stay lit by being filled with the Spirit. It is better than getting drunk or getting high off drugs, which is temporary. God’s high is everlasting with no adverse effects. It transforms us inside and out.

Ephesians 5:18 Christian Standard Version: Don’t get drunk with wine, which leads to reckless living, but be filled by the Spirit.

We can stay lit by the lifestyle we live. As believers in Jesus, our lifestyle should resemble the fruits of the Spirit. We can have peace in the storm by trusting in God. We can walk in love even when someone does evil to us. We can have joy during pain. We can endure challenges when our hope is in God. People will know you are of God without quoting scriptures because the evidence/fruit will show in our lives.

Matthew 5:18 Common English Version: 16 In the same way, let your light shine before people, so they can see the good things you do and praise your Father in heaven.

My Aunt Mary would say, “Judge a tree by the fruit it bears” (Matthew 7:20). Believers bear the fruits of the Spirit. Matthew 5:22-23 Amplified Version: 22 But the fruit of the Spirit [the result of His presence within us] is love [unselfish concern for others], joy, [inner] peace, patience [not the ability to wait, but how we act while waiting], kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control. Against such things, there is no law.

On Wednesday, I saw a faith-based movie on Tubi titled “Wake Up Call.” At first, I turned it off when I saw it was a low-budget film. However, the Holy Spirit led me to watch it again. It was a lady who went to church every Sunday but during the week partied, got drunk, lived with her boyfriend she was not married to, and behaved like she did not know God. Her parents tried talking to her, but she got offended and angry. Her Father kept praying for her, gave her over to God, and walked the life of God out before her. She came home drunk one night with her friends who did not attend church. One of her friends told her, “You are just like the rest of us. The only difference is you just get up early and go to church after staying up all night partying.” She got angry and told her to leave. It was her wake-up call. She realized her friend was telling the truth. It was a wake-up call for her to change her life.

God wants us to enjoy life as believers. However, our lifestyle should show the love of God and the fruit of the Spirit. Our light should shine so bright that people should want to know about the God we serve. We are in the world, but not of the world. When we sow to the flesh, we reap corruption; but, when we sow to the Spirit, we have life and peace (Galatians 6:8). Flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God (1 Corinthians 15:50). It means we can only inherit the things of God through the Spirit with faith, hope and trust in God not through our emotions/feelings. Don’t settle for a temporary high. Taste and see that the Lord is good (Psalm 34:8). Lamentations 3:22-23 Easy Read Version: 22 The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end;23 they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.

Stay lit with God’s Spirit!

Prayer: Lord, thank you for giving me the Holy Spirit. Without you and the Holy Spirit dwelling in me, I can do nothing. I let my light shine so people can see your goodness and glorify my Father, which is in heaven. I repent for sowing to my flesh & reaping corruption. I sow to the spirit and reap life and peace. I bear fruit by spending time in the word of God and staying in your presence. The love of God flows through me and draws people into the kingdom of God. May God be glorified in my life. In Jesus’ name! Amen!

Do Not Doubt . God Sends The Rain During the Drought

Thursday, it rained after being without rain for an extended period. Judy Jacobs’s song “Rain Dance” came into my spirit while driving. So I turned the music on at home and danced. I was like Elijah, “I hear the sound of abundance of rain” in the spirit realm. A lot of us may be going through a dry season. So get ready for the rain and prepare the field for the shower!

Prayer is the key to receiving the rain. The word of God says we should always pray and not faint or give up {Luke 18:1).

1 Kings:8:41-42 Living Translation: 41 Then Elijah said to Ahab, “Go get something to eat and drink, for I hear a mighty rainstorm coming!” 42 So Ahab went to eat and drink. But Elijah climbed to the top of Mount Carmel and bowed low to the ground and prayed with his face between his knees.

We should expect that what we prayed for is done according to God’s will, which is God’s word.

1 Kings 18:43: 43 Then he said to his servant, “Go and look out toward the sea.”

Hold onto your faith, for God is faithful. Act like it is already done; be on the lookout for it. The race is not given to the swift or the strong, but those who endures to the end will receive the promise (Ecclesiastes 9:11) 

1 Kings 18:43-46: The servant looked, returned to Elijah, and said, “I didn’t see anything. Seven times Elijah told him to go and look. 44 Finally, his servant told him the seventh time, “I saw a little cloud about the size of a man’s hand rising from the sea.” Then Elijah shouted, “Hurry to Ahab and tell him, ‘Climb into your chariot and go back home. If you don’t hurry, the rain will stop you!'” 45 And soon the sky was black with clouds. A heavy wind brought a terrific rainstorm, and Ahab left quickly for Jezreel. 46 Then, the Lord gave exceptional strength to Elijah. He tucked his cloak into his belt and ran ahead of Ahab’s chariot to the entrance of Jezreel.

Do not doubt. God sends the rain during the drought!

Prayer: Lord, thank you for your faithfulness. I wait in expectancy for what you promised in your word. I repent for giving up during the wait. I trust your timing; I pray, give thanks, endure until the end, and receive the promise. It is done in Jesus’ name! Amen.

Once God Starts To Bless, Don’t Slip Back In Your Old Mess!

The blog phrase came to my sister as we were talking about how we can forget about God after God gives us grace and blesses us. We have all been guilty of it. My sister was telling me how God wants to do more for us. However, we become comfortable and camp out where we are. We spend time with God, but it is a bare minimum. God wants to take us from faith to faith, glory to glory. God created us as believers in Jesus to glorify Him and take dominion over the earth for His purpose. God wants to get His people off the world’s system and depend totally on Him. God wants His people to take dominion wherever we go. We are crying out for change; however, with that passion and anger, God can use us in that area to make a difference, with His guidance.

Deuteronomy 8:11-19: 11 Be careful that you do not forget the Lord your God, failing to observe his commands, his laws and his decrees that I am giving you this day. 12 Otherwise, when you eat and are satisfied, when you build fine houses and settle down, 13 and when your herds and flocks grow large and your silver and gold increase and all you have is multiplied, 14 then your heart will become proud and you will forget the Lord your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery. 15 He led you through the vast and dreadful wilderness, that thirsty and waterless land, with its venomous snakes and scorpions. He brought you water out of hard rock. 16 He gave you manna to eat in the wilderness, something your ancestors had never known, to humble and test you so that in the end it might go well with you. 17 You may say to yourself, “My power and the strength of my hands have produced this wealth for me.” 18 But remember the Lord your God, for it is he who gives you the ability to produce wealth, and so confirms his covenant, which he swore to your ancestors, as it is today.19 If you ever forget the Lord your God and follow other gods and worship and bow down to them, I testify against you today that you will surely be destroyed. 20 Like the nations the Lord destroyed before you, so you will be destroyed for not obeying the Lord your God.God wants us to remember Him when He delivers us for.

Solomon is an example in the bible of not remembering God. He started out asking God for wisdom to rule the people and was humble. God gave him wisdom along with wealth. He got the wealth and wisdom and did everything his heart desired. Solomon had a lot of wives and mistresses. He turned his heart from God. At the end of his life, Solomon lived in regret. Solomon said all that he had was useless and vanity. Solomon said the best thing to do is to honor God, enjoy the fruits of your labor, and enjoy the people you love, which we can not do without God.

Job was the opposite of Solomon. He was an upright, wealthy man. He honored God when he had the wealth and when he lost everything. God gave Job double for his trouble. While on a high, he served God, and at his lowest, he served God. During a difficult situation, Job said, “Though He slays me, yet will I trust him.” The devil catches us unaware to make us turn away from God. In the morning, the devil comes at you, and night while you are sleeping. That is why Joshua 1 says to meditate on the word day and night to be strong. We must study our opponent, the devil, and stay ready. We can lose focus when things are great and when things are challenging.

When God starts to bless, don’t slip back into your old mess!

Prayer: Lord, thank you for brand new mercies. God, I repent for not being diligent in the things of God and forgetting about you. God I serve you at my highest and lowest moments because you are good and deserve all my devotion. Thank you for saving me from death and hell. I do not take my salvation and your love for granted. I testify about your goodness to draw people to you. I continue in your word and go from faith to faith, glory to glory. I give you the honor and praise in Jesus’ name! Amen.
