Today Reminder - 31 October 2013 (Day 23 - Living in the Kingdom)

A reminder for today
Then King Hezekiah and the prophet Isaiah son of Amoz cried out in prayer to God in heaven. And the LORD sent an angel who destroyed the Assyrian army with all its commanders and officers. So Sennacherib was forced to return home in disgrace to his own land. (2 Chronicles 32:20-21)

How are you today my dear friend and how are you doing with all your challenges in the kingdom of God? As you know we are in the proses of moving into a new house that the Lord so graciously blessed us with. Today was our fourth due date that we were supposed to move in. Unfortunately our builder lied about a number of things in this meant that yesterday we found out that these last finishes were not ordered as he had said and so we are forced to wait another week. As I left there yesterday I realised how the devil has used a weakness in this man to not only disgrace him but to cause anger and unhappiness within us. It is interesting that on the very words I write to you each day the enemy challenges me. 

King Hezekiah cried out in prayer to the Lord and the Lord sent one angel to destroy the Assyrian army. One angel! This is such an awesome verse and something we most certainly can take with us today. This is what the Lord will do for us. The Lord will defeat the enemy and all our challenges sending them home in disgrace. 

My dear friend, the Lord wants to remind us today that we must not stop praying and we must not give up. He will deliver us from all that we face and we will be victorious over all our challenges. It is in our commitment and determination to serve the Lord that we will see the enemy fall and run away out of fear for the wrath of our Lord.
So I am ending October with these words: 

I look up to the mountains—does my help come from there? My help comes from the LORD, who made heaven and earth! He will not let you stumble; the one who watches over you will not slumber. Indeed, he who watches over Israel never slumbers or sleeps. The LORD himself watches over you! The LORD stands beside you as your protective shade. The sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon at night. The LORD keeps you from all  harm and watches over your life. The LORD keeps watch over you as you come and go, both now and forever. (Psalm 121)

Have and awesome day dear friend of Jesus
