Isaiah 54:17 New International Version (NIV)
17 no weapon forged against you will prevail,
and you will refute every tongue that accuses you.
This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord,
and this is their vindication from me,”
declares the Lord.
NO WEAPON ~
GOD HAS THIS
Words hurt and can make our emotions go crazy. Words can either push us further or backwards in life. I have found myself at a crossroads before of a big decision. Do I press forward with God or not? I know more today than I did years ago and I watched lives change. Some of those lives changed the positive and I see their walk with God. Other lives changed without God and I see the destruction in their lives. I also see that it doesn't only affect the person but their family and friends. I miss the Jesus I saw in some people and I must be honest about that. People who had titles in church of Pastor, Worship Leader, a person I saw weekly at church and the list goes on. We don't need a title to work for the Lord or to know who we are in life.
We must remember that the devil is real and he goes about to destroy you. If he can destroy you, then he has destroyed the world of God through your life. Only you can accomplish somethings while on earth and you were purposed for greater. I know this because each of us are purposed for greater. Look around you to see a person who is faithful to God and their determination to do the right thing. No Christian aren't perfect but determined in most cases to follow the will of God. Turning away from God is turning away from freedom of thoughts that drag you down and heaven bound.
1 Peter 5:8 (NIV)
Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.
A good reminder is one of who God is to you and others. He is the almighty and supplies our lives with wisdom, knowledge and gives us an opportunity to live in freedom of yesterdays. God is so much more to all of us. My prayers continue today for you, your family and friends. Purpose this a good day and watch yourself. Be aware that the devil doesn't want you to prosper. You have an opportunity today to serve God or not. My choice is the serve God with all my heart, soul and might. I've seen a lot of changes in my life. I've been in the rough spot of where are you God and I've been in the spot of peace knowing God is right here with me.
It's how we view things in life that matters. Just like the glass of water half full or half empty. Which way do you view it? I choose the positive and at least I still have water, so half full. Don't believe any lies of the devil and watch your thought pattern. Happy New Day to you!
