It is better to get hurt by the truth than to be comforted by a lie. For the Lord disciplines those he loves, and he punishes each one he accepts as his child (Heb. 12:6 NLT).

God’s words are not only there to correct, encourage, guide and teach you. His words are also there to convict you, so that you do not fall into sins and destroy your lives and souls. When you are convicted, you are aware of your sins and are compelled to admit the truth and repent.

For the Lord sees not as man sees: man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart (1 Sam. 16:7 ESV). A person can hide what is in their heart from others, but not from God. The condition of one’s heart will reveal itself in one’s actions. Therefore, if there are lust, hate, jealousy, bitterness, unforgiveness, greed, pride, strife, and other sins in one’s heart, it is time to sincerely repent before the Lord.

But if we confess our sins to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness (1 John 1:9 NLT). Although God’s grace is there so that you can be forgiven, his grace should not be taken for granted. Well then, should we keep on sinning so that God can show us more and more of his wonderful grace (Rom. 6:1 NLT)?

Jesus is coming back to judge this world (Matt. 25:31-46). Important to realize, he does not want anyone to be destroyed, but wants everyone to repent (2 Pet. 3:9 NLT).

The scriptures warn of the last days and the types of people that you should avoid.

But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty. For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power. Avoid such people (2 Timothy 3:1-5 ESV).

Now when these things begin to take place, straighten up and raise your heads, because your redemption is drawing near (Luke 21:28 ESV).

Being humble does not undermine courage and strength.

Who Is Your Rock?

From the end of the earth I call to you when my heart is faint. Lead me to the rock that is higher than I (Psalm 61:2).

Jealousy is Unhealthy

Surely vexation kills the fool, and jealousy slays the simple (Job 5:2).

AltarDo you have a sacred place located in your home, where you can commune with God and Him alone?

If you don’t, it’s important for you to identify a sacred place in your home, where you can pray, meditate, praise, worship and commune with God.

For me, I have built an altar, using a small table. I placed it in my bedroom, because I can escape from the busyness of the other sections of my home, and have that peace and privacy with God alone.

If you desire to build an altar, you can use a small table or a night stand, and place holy objects and oils on your altar. For example, a cross of Jesus, your Bible, inspirational books, holy consecrated water, consecrated olive oil, holy candles, healing oils, etc. It depends on your preferences and practices.

Equally important, whenever I get any prayer requests, I usually add…

Steps To Salvation

These four R’s will guide your steps to salvation.

  1. Realize that you are a sinner. For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God (Rom. 3:10; 23; Rom. 5:12; Eccles. 7:20).
  2. Recognize that Jesus came to this earth, died on the cross for your sins and rose from the dead (Rom. 5:8; Rom.10:9; John 3:16; 1 Pet. 3:18; 1 Cor. 6:14).
  3. Repent of your sins and be baptized (Acts 2:38; Mark 16:16; 1 John 1:9; Luke 5:32; Matt. 4:17).
  4. Receive Jesus as your Lord and Savior (John 1:12; John 3:3-5: Rom. 6:23; Rom. 10:10; Mark 10:15).

Are you in a battle today, and it’s taking more than just a physical toll on you? Are you finding it difficult to find the words to tell the devil to be gone? Spiritual warfare is crippling, real, and troublesome, but Jesus has already won us the victory! Pray along with these words now and let the Lord break the chains of fear and bondage!

Jesus, sometimes I can almost sense the heaviness of pressure mounting and the ominous presence of darkness around me. I recognize my enemy is at work again. Whether he’s trying to discourage me to get sidetracked, to fall into temptation, to give up, or to take my eyes off you, he’s always hanging around.

I need your supernatural power, Lord, to stand strong and not surrender. Physical force won’t help, because you’ve said the weapons of our warfare are different from those in this world. As believers, ours are powerful and can demolish strongholds and lies. These supernatural weapons originate from you. By your precious name and blood, Jesus, I’m asking you to confuse Satan and cancel his attempts to shut me and my influence down. Help me not to become discouraged or to give in when heavy times of testing come.

When I’m tired and weak, you are strong, Lord, and you are my only source of help. I cannot fight without you. Teach me how to pray and to trust you to pull down those strongholds that keep me or others helpless. Guard me from isolation that leaves me exposed and vulnerable. I believe you destroyed the power of my enemy by your death and resurrection. But like a bad penny, my enemy keeps showing up, whispering lies, twisting the truth, and attempting to inflate my selfish pride. He never gives up.

I am declaring the devil and his demons liars today, Lord. Through the power of your precious name and blood, I agree with your Word and the truth that you are in me and that you are greater than my enemy who wants to rule the world. You, your Word, and prayer, Lord, are my secret weapons. I belong to you, and that fills me with a powerful God-confidence. I want to constantly dress in the spiritual armor you give me. Help me use it to defend others from Satan’s fiery darts as well. No one and nothing can snatch me away from your hand.

Strengthen my faith, Lord. Forgive my sins, so that I may be clean in your righteousness. Make me brave, so I can stand and fight the spiritual battles in my life and in our world. Give me your wisdom and discernment so I won’t be caught off guard. Together, Lord, we’ll win, because in truth, you already have.

In Jesus’s powerful name before which every knee shall bow, Amen!
