Because we had all gone astray as lost sheep Jesus was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed. (Isaiah 53:4 KJV)

It is time for us to wake up out of our slumber and sleep to see that God is calling us today.  We need to humble ouselves, turn from our wicked ways, seek his face, and repent.  He has promised in his word that when we do this he will hear from heaven and heal our land.  Today is all the you have to turn back to your father.  Christ is waiting for you that he may intercede  on your behalf.  Remember God can call you home at anytime, tomorrow is not be an option for you.

Ephesians 6:12 (KJV)
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

- Praise JESUS, the BATTLE HAS BEEN WON.  Walk in it trusting not in man but the power of Jesus in you.  Live to Love and Love to Live for him.  You are as he is.  Believe that you are Strong and Mighty through his power and more than capable of achieving the will of God for your life.  Praise God in ALL THINGS Good, Bad and Indifferent.

Enduring The Struggles of Life

We wrestler daily with an adversary whose desire is to distract us from our blessings.  Those distractions. by design, are created to strengthen us and draw us closer to God, but our adversary would have it to destroy us.  The best defense is in your praises.  The struggles of life do not have to be so, if only you would close your eyes to examine things clearly.  Life becomes so much clearer when you have blinded  your natural eyes to view life spiritually.

Your praises will give you peace during your trial.  Know that what you are enduring is approved of God to bless you.  It will strengthen and prepare you for what is coming.  Praise him knowing that at the end you will shine brighter than before and as you go through grace will guide you.
