j0182038God’s Word  …the words of the LORD are flawless, like silver refined in a furnace of clay,       purified seven times. 

Psalm 12 God Protects The Faithful

 Thank you Father for your beauty… You are a Holy God; you are a mighty God; you are the creator of all things.  Thank you for your unfailing everlasting love.  Great is your faithfulness. It is through your faithful love, your sacrificial love that is Jesus Christ.  Thank for Christ interceding for us and filling us to overflowing… Your daughters will love deeply, forgive quickly and use words that lift up.  Help us LORD, for the godly are no more; the faithful have vanished from among men.   Everyone lies to his neighbor; their flattering lips speak with deceptive words. Your daughters will be faithful love their neighbors; and not be deceptive.   May the LORD cut off all flattering lips and every boastful tongue that says, “We will triumph with our tongues; Your daughters will watch their words, your word says the power of the tongue brings life and death and those who love it will eat it’s fruit.  May we eat the fruit of our good words.  “Because of the oppression of the weak and the groaning of the needy, I will now arise,” says the LORD. “I will protect them from those who malign them.” Thank you for protection, Father and strengthening us through you mighty presence.  the words of the LORD are flawless, like silver refined in a furnace of clay, purified seven times.  Thank you for refining us, purifying us to be more like Christ… O LORD, you will keep us safe and protect us from such people forever.  Thank you for blessing us with your love. Thank you for your Provision and abundance in our households, and family.   Thank you for your promises in your flawless word of hope… In Jesus name we pray…Amen!

God’s Promise
He is my loving God and my fortress,
       my stronghold and my deliverer,
       my shield, in whom I take refuge,
       who subdues peoples under me.
O LORD, what is man that you care for him,
       the son of man that you think of him?
Psalm 144:2-3
 

Encouragement Shared:
The glory of the Lord is equipping us  for the battle[s]…
In our hands God has given us shield and the sword for battle…
The shield is faith…so we can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.
The sword is every word of God breathed into the Holy Scriptures and sown in the tablet of the heart…
For the battle is not mine nor is it yours…
The battle is the Lord’s just as David proclaimed before his victory, The Battle has been won! All those gathered here will know that it is not by sword or spear that the LORD saves; for the battle is the LORD’s, and he will give all of you into our hands.” 1 Samuel 17:47…
So what ever the battle is the victory has been won through the blood of the lamb and by the word of his testimony! For me personally, the victory is the day of salvation for my son; It is done; and by his wounds Jon his healed, redeemed, sealed and being sanctified through the on going storm he is in the midst of.  So by the word of the Lord we are to stand firm: So he said to me, “This is the word of the LORD … ‘Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,’ says the LORD Almighty. Zechariah 4:6
I am in awe of his miraculous and wondrous works, I am excited by the glory of his presence…The presence of the I AM!

• 2 Samuel 22:40
You armed me with strength for battle; you made my adversaries bow at my feet.
              
• Psalm 18:34
He trains my hands for battle; my arms can bend a bow of bronze.

CB014446The Storms Will Pass…
The vision to see past the storm, he arms us for battle through the glory and might poured upon us. It is through the vision of his glory he strengthens us!  It is an anointing that pure and holy that is what is displayed for all to see.  we are an aroma pleasing unto the Lord and to those saints whom are diligently seeking him too.  But, to those whom are perishing it is an aroma of death.   My sisters you are anointed women of God in partnership with the King of Kings; Lord of Lords to rebuild ancient ruins being restored through the power and might within you.   Glory to the Lord!  To our God and King may you continue to rest in the shelter and the shadow of the ALL MIGHTY!    

Mercy, peace and love be yours in abundance,
Love in Christ,

“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace.  In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”  John 16:33

 

Encouragement Shared:[ Extra Ordinary Faith]

David Believed-He had EXTRA-ORDINARY faith…

This day the LORD will hand you over to me, and I’ll strike you down and cut off your head. Today I will give the carcasses of the Philistine army to the birds of the air and the beasts of the earth, and the whole world will know that there is a God in Israel . All those gathered here will know that it is not by sword or spear that the LORD saves; for the battle is the LORD’s, and he will give all of you into our hands.”  As the Philistine moved closer to attack him, David ran quickly toward the battle line to meet him. 1 Samuel 17:46-48

CB033027We all have our Goliath if you will…
We all have our Goliath’s and the true act of faith is to know that battle is not ours but the battle belongs to the Lord.  Perfect love expels fear;    1 John 4:18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love. How do we do this?  Solomon writes: How does a young man remain pure? By living according to your word. Psalm 119:9-Faith comes by hearing- Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word of Christ. Romans 10:17

j0443254Put God’s Word Into Practice…

Peter states, -Put these things into practice: Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that your brothers throughout the world are undergoing the same kind of sufferings. And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast. 1 Peter 5:8-10 And of course put on- “The

 

Put on the “Full Armor of God” Ephesians 6-

Ephesians 6:13
Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.

In Context-Ephesians 6:12-14
