Spiritual Battles

Verse of the Day:  2 Corinthians 10:4           

For the weapons of our warfare are not physical, but they are mighty through God for the pulling down of strongholds.     

We each fight spiritual battles every day. Discouragement, anger, stress and defeat are just some of the enemy’s tactics as he tries to bring you down. When the devil sees that God has something great for you just around the corner he will fight his hardest to keep you from what God has in store for you. Be alert and recognize his schemes so you don’t fall into his traps. Arm yourself with spiritual weapons, the Word of God and prayer. We will not win the war against evil by our own strength but by the power of the mighty God we serve. Whatever you are battling today remember that God is on your side and you are more than a conqueror through Christ.

Don’t Be Discouraged

2 Corinthians 4 16

 

Verse of the Day:  2 Corinthians 4:16

Therefore, we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day.

 

Life is sometimes hard and the world can be a mean and lonely place not to mention the pressure we put on ourselves to be perfect.  Don’t be discouraged, don’t give up, this world and everything in it is only temporary.  Turn to God and let your spirit be renewed by His love and grace. Remember, God gave you a spirit that does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline. (2 Timothy 1:7)

Peace for Your Stress

Philippians 4 7

 

Verse of the Day:  Philippians 4:7

And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

 

Everyone deals with stress now and then and some people deal with it on a regular basis.  Meditating on God’s Word and praying help us to deal with external stressors.  We also have to do our part in taking care of our bodies.  We need to practice a healthy lifestyle, eat right, and exercise.  Give your worries over to God, put your trust and confidence in Him and let the Prince of Peace, Jesus Christ, bring his peace into your life.

10 Days of Thanksgiving – Day 5:  Thankful for God’s Peace

1 11-18 1 Colossians 3 15

 

Verse of the Day:  Colossians 3:15

Let the peace that comes from Christ rule in your hearts and always be thankful.

 

Today I am thankful that I have God’s peace in my life.  The other day I was talking to someone who was telling me about all the stress and drama in their life and afterward all I could think was, “Thank God I have peace in my life!” It wasn’t always this way though, through the years I’ve learned to trust in the Lord with all my heart and I’ve learned to let go and let Him have His way.  I know that God is in control and the closer I draw to Him the more peace I have.
