Today Reminder – 31 July 2014 (Day 23 – War)



A reminder for today
I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me (John 14:6)

Today I just want to remind you that you must not accept the lies of the enemy but you should embrace the truth that is in Jesus Christ. Paul said that we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places (Ephesians 6:12). Our battle is not one that is seen but one that happens inside us. We face the waves of a stormy sea and the eruptions of a blood thirsty volcano and sometimes we are the only ones that see our battle. We stand in the midst of this storm as it rages around us and everyone else just carries on with their daily lives. It is here in our battle where the Lord stands so firm with us. It is here when we tremble at the sight of our battles that we rise with hope and we defeat with faith. It is when we stumble and fall and stand up again with determination, and our hearts firmly grounded on the foundation of Jesus, that we carry on no matter the load. It is the knowledge of the Cross and the life that awaits us that motivates us. It is the way we understand the difference between temporary and eternity. And finally it is the way we are loved first that we can love unconditionally without remorse. It is in our walk and in our talk. It is who we are and, it is why we are.

Have an awesome day dear friend of Jesus

Today Reminder – 30 July 2014 (Day 22 – War)



A reminder for today
The thief's purpose is to steal and kill and destroy. My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life. I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd sacrifices his life for the sheep. (John 10:10-11)

The enemy’s sole purpose is to destroy at any cost. The Lord wants to remind you that His purpose is to give you a rich and satisfying life. This means that the Lord wants you to live a full life. When I say live, I mean that you must live without the worries and concerns that the enemy uses to hamper your happiness. Live with the intention to find joy in every moment and to glorify Him in all those moments. Live to be different and in your difference your faith will open the eyes of those still grounded by the enemy’s lies. Live and breathe every little bit of every little opportunity to show content and freedom. 

The best way to counter the enemy’s attacks is to show your unwillingness to submit and listen to his lies. The Lord is our shepherd and He gave His life for us so that we can enjoy a rich and satisfying life without being stuck in a worry hole filled with negative thoughts.

He gave His life. Let’s give Him ours.

Have an awesome day dear friend of Jesus

Today Reminder – 29 July 2014 (Day 21 – War)



A reminder for today
"Yes," he told them, "I saw Satan fall from heaven like lightning! Look, I have given you authority over all the power of the enemy, and you can walk among snakes and scorpions and crush them. Nothing will injure you. But don't rejoice because evil spirits obey you; rejoice because your names are registered in heaven."  (Luke 10:18-20)

How are you my friend? How are you doing in your battles? These are the type of verses that you read and read again. Today the Lord wants to remind you that the enemy is already defeated and that you must rejoice, because your name is registered in heaven. I can see the enemy tormenting you with all kinds of evil as they are in the form of snakes and scorpions. I see you stand among these evils and how you can walk past them as they scatter at your feet. I see how you are lifted out of your waves of challenges as you reach out for His hand. I see you walking out of the water and onto dry land as the Lord separates them and giving you a clear path.

I see you my friend as we rejoice, because the Lamb has given us victory and wrote our names with His blood in the register of Heaven. 

There are no evil that can prevail over you, for with Him you are a powerful force.

Have an awesome day dear friend of Jesus

Today Reminder – 28 July 2014 (Day 20 – War)



A reminder for today
This is my command—be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the LORD your God is with you wherever you go." (Joshua 1:9)

In your battles today be strong and courageous for the Lord is with you, my friend. He holds you in His hands and shields you against the arrows of the enemy. He will cover you in His armour and keep you save when the enemy attacks. He will carry you over the field of battle and He will slay all the troubles that come your way. He will show you a safe way through the enemy lines and guide you on your journey. He will strengthen your hands and steady your feet. He will renew your Spirit and keep you warm in the cold. He will tend to your wounds and He will watch over you as you rest. He will lift you up when you have fallen and He will shelter you in the storms.

Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the LORD your God is with you wherever you go

Today Reminder – 25 July 2014 (Day 19 – War)



A reminder for today
Fear of the LORD is the foundation of true knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and discipline. (Proverbs 1:7)

This so nicely adds on to my post earlier this week. Today I just want you to focus on these words: fools despise wisdom and discipline.

I cannot begin to tell you how many times the wisdom I ask for from the Lord has helped me. I have seen His amazing wisdom come into play in so many situations so many times and it always leaves me in awe of His wonder. In battle every army has a strategy and as I have shown you in my past posts, our enemy is a master strategist with a plan for each one of us. That does not mean that our commander has no plan. No my friend, He has already executed His plan in the form of Jesus Christ. Our commander has already defeated our enemy and left him powerless in his own greed.

So when you are faced with your battles today, here is a peace of wisdom that you should keep in mind – The Lord Jesus Christ died for you and all of you. He gladly gave up His life out of love for you so that you can walk into this day with no worries and no fear that you will be caught unarmed against our enemy. In fact our enemy is very careful to attack you, because of the awesome God that dwells within you.

So today let us ask the Lord for wisdom and let Him correct us when we are wrong. Let Him guide and lead us away from temptation and back onto His plan. Let His will be done.

Have an awesome day dear friend of Jesus
