WALK IT OUT

In this life I’ve had to endure heartaches, pain, loss, disappointments, sickness, betrayals a plenty. However, as I look back and see all God’s brought me through I realize those things I thought were sent to tear me down were actually building me up for such a time as this!! I’m wiser. I’m stronger. To God be the glory!! Somebody shout, “Hallelujah”, and give God the praise!!

STAND ON THE WORD

Romans 8:28

28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

Something To Think About…

You are more than a conqueror through Christ Jesus! No matter what you face on today go forth knowing Jesus is with you! You are not alone! The battle is not yours! Victory is yours!

The Living Word

WALK IT OUT

Do you really want to see this country changed for the better? Do you really want godly leadership for our country? Do you really love your brother and sister, and desire leadership that respects all no matter their race, gender, or creed. If so here’s what you need to do…

1. HUMBLE YOUR SELF
2. PRAY
3. SEEK THE FACE OF GOD
4. TURN FROM YOUR WICKED WAYS

Then, watch God move and heal the land!!

In the bible days they wanted a golden calf and sought various leaders to be raised up to lead them (but they all fell short due to their human weaknesses). It is the same today!! Make the best choice, and invite the King of Kings and Lord of Lords to rule in your life and our country on today and always!!!

STAND ON THE WORD

2 Chronicles 7:14 (KJV)

14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

1 Samuel 8 (KJV)

6 But the thing displeased Samuel, when they said, Give us a king to judge us. And Samuel prayed unto the Lord.

7 And the Lord said unto Samuel, Hearken unto the voice of the people in all that they say unto thee: for they have not rejected thee, but they have rejected me, that I should not reign over them.

8 According to all the works which they have done since the day that I brought them up out of Egypt even unto this day, wherewith they have forsaken me, and served other gods, so do they also unto thee.

9 Now therefore hearken unto their voice: howbeit yet protest solemnly unto them, and shew them the manner of the king that shall reign over them.

10 And Samuel told all the words of the Lord unto the people that asked of him a king.

11 And he said, This will be the manner of the king that shall reign over you: He will take your sons, and appoint them for himself, for his chariots, and to be his horsemen; and some shall run before his chariots.

12 And he will appoint him captains over thousands, and captains over fifties; and will set them to ear his ground, and to reap his harvest, and to make his instruments of war, and instruments of his chariots.

13 And he will take your daughters to be confectionaries, and to be cooks, and to be bakers.

14 And he will take your fields, and your vineyards, and your oliveyards, even the best of them, and give them to his servants.

15 And he will take the tenth of your seed, and of your vineyards, and give to his officers, and to his servants.

16 And he will take your menservants, and your maidservants, and your goodliest young men, and your asses, and put them to his work.

17 He will take the tenth of your sheep: and ye shall be his servants.

18 And ye shall cry out in that day because of your king which ye shall have chosen you; and the Lord will not hear you in that day.

19 Nevertheless the people refused to obey the voice of Samuel; and they said, Nay; but we will have a king over us;

20 That we also may be like all the nations; and that our king may judge us, and go out before us, and fight our battles.

21 And Samuel heard all the words of the people, and he rehearsed them in the ears of the Lord.

22 And the Lord said to Samuel, Hearken unto their voice, and make them a king. And Samuel said unto the men of Israel, Go ye every man unto his city.

The day is almost over and you may be waiting on your answer still, but don’t give in to fear, doubt, and frustration. Go and pray some more! What you need God’s got it! Seek Him!

Today we pause to remember…

Prayers for the families of all those who lost loved ones. Prayers for those of us who remain that we will be ready to meet the Lord when our time comes. One day the Lord will wipe away every tear. One day there will be no more death, dying, and despair. We look to the hills from whence comes our help. Our help comes from the Lord!!

No matter how far you’ve gone the Lord is still calling you to come back home!

You may not be able to depend on people to stay with you through the storm to comfort and help you in your time of distress. You might even lose some things or suffer damages in the process, however be of good courage. You have prepared in advance for the storm that has come upon you through prayer, fasting, studying the word, and obedience. Now, sit back and relax, knowing God is there to keep you and comfort you with His strength, power, provision, and never ending love!

Deuteronomy 31:6 (KJV)

6 Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the Lord thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.

Deuteronomy 31:8 (KJV)

8 And the Lord, he it is that doth go before thee; he will be with thee, he will not fail thee, neither forsake thee: fear not, neither be dismayed.

Luke 8:23-25(KJV)

23 But as they sailed he fell asleep: and there came down a storm of wind on the lake; and they were filled with water, and were in jeopardy.

24 And they came to him, and awoke him, saying, Master, master, we perish. Then he arose, and rebuked the wind and the raging of the water: and they ceased, and there was a calm.

25 And he said unto them, Where is your faith? And they being afraid wondered, saying one to another, What manner of man is this! for he commandeth even the winds and water, and they obey him.

You Are Not Alone!

Called To Be A Soldier

The Lord is calling for a prepared people to rise up and do a great work for Him in these last and evil days. There is a great need in our society for the people of God, the salt of the earth, to share the good news that there is a savior who loves us and desires for us to come unto Him to find peace and rest.

As we look around us we see signs that the end is nearer then when we first believed. We hear of earthquakes, tornadoes, hurricanes, plane crashes, and all kinds of natural disasters occurring all around us at an ever increasing rate, but we, the children of God, are admonished to not worry or fret when we see these things occur, because they must, as we await that great day when our heavenly Father will come again to usher us home.

While there is yet time we must be about our Father’s business, working while it is yet day, to bring others into the knowledge of Christ. We must take our position as a soldier in the army of the Lord. Oh, what a blessed calling and privilege it is to be called for this great work.

As a soldier, we must first know the commander in chief, our lord and savior, Jesus Christ, and must strive daily to build a stronger relationship with him. Then, we must know our place of assignment, and remain there steadfast and unmovable until we receive our marching orders. We must prepare ourselves to go out by enduring the many trials and tribulations that will come to us all, to strengthen and train us to prepare us for this great battle for souls. We must be in position, and ready to move, when the command is given without hesitation or doubt, and in order to do this we must know the voice of God.

Therefore, let us each put on the whole armor of God through prayer, fasting, and bible study, and join in with all our strength and might to do a great work for our God. Let us not faint or be weary as we look around us and see how man has tried to remove God from our schools, our communities, and ultimately our homes (if we were to allow it to be so).

What a joy it is to know this battle is already won. The victory is ours saints, so lets join together as one, in the beauty of holiness, and rise up and go forth as a mighty soldier in the army of the Lord and reclaim those souls that the enemy has attempted to kill, steal, and destroy!

The call has gone out, rise up soldiers, rise up, and go forth!

 

Words To Stand On…

 

Ephesians 6:11

11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

 

2 Timothy 2:3-4

3 Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.

4 No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.

 

Psalm 56:9-11

9 When I cry unto thee, then shall mine enemies turn back: this I know; for God is for me.

10  In God will I praise his word: in the LORD will I praise his word.

11 In God have I put my trust: I will not be afraid what man can do unto me.
