Break Free Today!

Whatever situation that the enemy is using to chain you to him, you have got to break free today! If the enemy is using sickness, poverty, anger, addiction, deception, doubt, depression, loneliness, and sins to chain you to him, you have got to seek your deliverance in the mighty name of Jesus.

Break Every Chain

You are in a spiritual warfare, and as you battle with the spirits of darkness, you need to have faith to receive your deliverance. Satan uses chains to bind his captives, in order to have them defeated. He comes to kill, steal and to destroy (John 10:10). But how long will you allow him to ruin your life and your home, while you sit helpless?

If you are chained to the devil in any sort of way, it’s time to break free! So wherever you are, begin to praise God now! “Arise, shine; for the light is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon you” (Isaiah 60:1).

Darkness has no place in your life. It doesn’t matter what you have done in the past, Jesus is ready to forgive you and set you free today! Your deliverance is not tomorrow or next week, or next month, or next year. Jesus said, “Today, you shall be with me in paradise” (Luke 23:43).

I declare over your life that you are free in the mighty name of Jesus!

 

I know almost all adults might answer ‘yes,’ to this question, especially if they have moved away from their parents’ home, and are working and taking care of themselves. However, independence appeals to all ages. It means “freedom from the control, influence, support, and aid of others.”

In reading a devotion by Bill Chowder, he too stated that, “It’s not surprising that teenagers talked about gaining their independence.”  However, as I delved deep into this devotion, he spoke of a craving for dependence, which is a spiritual recognition and acceptance of our deep spiritual dependence on the One who gives life.  Jesus stated, “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing” (John 15:5).

John15_5

In this dangerous and troubled world, you need the vine to sustain all your spiritual nutrients, or else you will be spiritually malnourished. If you are spiritually malnourished, you won’t be able to withstand the enemy and all the chaos and calamity that he throws at you.

By and large, when you think that you are independent, think about the one who you have to depend on – Jesus.

 

Has Your Joy Been Stolen?

Stolen Joy

In John 10:10 you are warned that the thief comes to steal, kill, and to destroy; but Jesus came that you might have life more abundantly. In this scripture, Satan is being referred to as the thief who steals your joy, in order for you to live a life of misery and defeat.

If you have been through a tough year in 2019 and have been robbed of things that caused you to lose your joy, then 2020 is the year to reclaim what the devil has stolen from you.

Now is not the time to throw in the towel and play a pity party.  It’s time to refocus your faith and trust in the Lord, so that He can restore you with unspeakable joy. You are encouraged in Psalms 30:5 that weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning. So dry your tears, arise and shine; for your light is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon you! (Isaiah 60:1)

It’s In the Valleys I Grow

Valley I Grow

Sometimes life seems hard to bear,
Full of sorrow, trouble and woe
It’s then I have to remember
That it’s in the valleys I grow.

If I always stayed on the mountain top
And never experienced pain,
I would never appreciate God’s love
And would be living in vain.

I have so much to learn
And my growth is very slow,
Sometimes I need the mountain tops,
But it’s in the valleys I grow.

I do not always understand
Why things happen as they do,
But I am very sure of one thing.
My Lord will see me through.

My little valleys are nothing
When I Picture Christ on the cross
He went through the valley of death;
His victory was Satan’s loss.

Forgive me Lord, for complaining
When I’m feeling so very low.
Just give me a gentle reminder
That’s it’s in the valleys I grow.

Continue to strengthen me, Lord
And use my life each day
To share your love with others
And help them find their way.

Thank you for the valleys, Lord
For this one thing I know
The mountain tops are glorious
But it’s in the valleys I grow.

By Jane Eggleston

P.S.  Just a reminder, that the God on the mountain tops is the same God in the valleys. Hope you enjoy this poem.

When All Hell Breaks Loose!

The devil brings confusion, hurt, chaos, mayhem, strife, war, evil, and vengeance. He will want to attack your health, your finances, your children, your relationship, your job, and steal your happiness and joy.

The devil does not like to see people prosper and bless. Therefore, he enjoys your mayhem and tribulations, and if you do not stand up to him, you will allow him to get the better of you. By doing so, you will continue to walk in defeat. In light of this, you have to learn how to be a victor, and not a victim of the devil. When you throw a pity party, the devil sees that, and continues to follow you around, because he knows you are about to throw in the towel.

When you are under attack from the devil, and all hell has broken loose in your life, it is easy to just be weak, and feels sorry for yourself, but you should have a spirit of command and determination.

In James 4:7-11, there are some tools that you can use to help you to defeat the devil. The Scripture advises you to submit yourself to God, resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

For you to fully defeat the devil, you will have to first submit yourself to God. How do you submit yourself to God? You should draw near to God, and He will draw near to you. You should cleanse your hands from sins, and not be double minded. In other words, you can’t be saved and be a sinner at the same time. You can’t serve God and the devil. You have to chose one.

Joshua reiterated this to the people of Israel,  And if it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” (Joshua 24:15)

What would it be like if you call in to pay a debt, and you hear your balance is zero? That would be nice indeed, wouldn’t it? Well, this is just how nice it is to hear that your debt in sins has been paid in full. Read on:

One day Satan went to visit Jesus in the Garden of Eden. Satan and Jesus were having a conversation, and Satan was all happy and boasting. (Luke 4: 1-12; Job 1: 6-12)

“Yes, Lord, now I have everybody captive, (well nearly everybody down there). I set traps, I used the baits of temptation, and I know very well what each one of them can’t resist.  I nearly caught them all!” (I Pet 5: 8-9; Eph 6: 10-17)
“What are you going to do with them?” Jesus asked, as He was praying to God the Father.

Satan answered, “Oh, I am going to have some fun with them! I’ll make them divorce after they have been married so the foundation of humanity will never be able to be established ‘the family’.” (Mt 19: 4-6; Mal 2: 16)

“I will make them hate and abuse each other, and I will make them fall into alcohol and drugs addiction.” (Rom 13: 12-14)

“I will teach them to make weapons and bombs,
so that they will kill each other. I am really going to have fun!”

“And when you are tired of playing with them, what will you do?”
Jesus asked, as He continued praying.

“Oh, I will kill them all, and their souls will be mine forever. Lord by all respect, it’s their decision.” (I John 3: 8-10)

“How much do you want for all of them?” Jesus asked.

“Oh, you don’t want these people. They aren’t anything good.
Why do you want them if they neither follow you nor love you?
Many hate you! I have seen many of them cursing you, and even denying you. What’s more, they love me a lot.” (Mt 24: 10-13)

“You don’t want these people!!”
“How much?” Jesus asked again.

Satan looked at him with a nasty face, and replied, “All your blood, sweat and tears.” (Is 53: 4-10; I Pet 2: 24)

Jesus said…”DONE!”

And He paid the price. (II Cor 5: 21)

How terrible it is that people don’t seek God, and then ask themselves why the world is going to Hell? How terrible it is that we seek the newspaper everyday to read tragedies and gossips, and we never seek to read the Bible?

How insensible it is that everybody wants to go to Heaven, thinking they can get there without having to believe, without loving God, above all things, doing what the Bible says…the Laws of God?

It is terrible how some people can say ‘I believe in God’ but still follow Satan. (Who as a matter of fact, does fear God)
(II Tim 4: 3-4; II Jn 1: 7-11)
Don’t you think it is outrageous that the obscene, vulgar and crude message is allowed freely to pass through the internet, but when it’s a message about God, we think about it twice before we share it? It is forbidden to speak publicly about Jesus in the schools, places of work, self-helping groups, etc., even after knowing what He did for us. The Romans didn’t killed Him, our sins caused His death, that we may be forgiven, and know Him in His glory with the Father.

Happy Easter Everyone!

Just thought of sharing this story of a scenario with Satan and Jesus, and the price Jesus paid for our sins. Author is unknown, but I thought it very interesting. Hope you do too. Share your feedback.
