As we all clearly know, we live in a broken and sinful earth. Way back after the world was created, Adam and Eve made a critical mistake. They listened to the devil and acted upon what they heard from him. Since then, the devil has been at work trying to keep people from making Jesus their Lord and Savior. Then, as Christians, did it seem that everything went wrong everywhere after you made Jesus your Lord and Savior? Or when you chose to serve God that more havoc occurred? Don't stand in worry or fear. And please don't give up on serving the Lord. We have an enemy whose goal it is to "steal, kill, and destroy" (John 10:10a). Jesus came that we would have and enjoy an abundant life (John 10:10b). So, rest your eyes on Jesus!
We Christians are in spiritual warfare. We are and need to be spiritual soldiers EVERY day. Some questions to consider: What are we wearing? Are we Christians every day and not just on Sundays? Do we ask God for help? Do we know how to give whatever we are going through to God and not take it back? Ephesians 6:10-18 gives us guidance and updates for these questions. Dear friends, we are approaching a season of thanksgiving and holiday joy. But there will be opportunities for the enemy and I know we all want to walk in every victory that Jesus has won for us. Have rooted in your heart the words "But God" and "Victory is Mine."
Over the next few weeks, I'm dedicating our study time to our enemy, cares, trials, battles and temptations. Let's see what God's Word says about walking in victory. God has destined us to be more than conquerors in ALL things (Rom. 8:31-39). Let's use our Bible as the weapon in spiritual warfare.
Holidays are around the corner and I have a free download for you. My website includes an area called "Read Full Testimony." When you go into this, you will find a "Christmas Program" nearly two thirds of the way down. Let it inspire you or please share with your pastor and leaders. It may be the program you use this year (works well for virtual/electronic services too).
Dear friends, we have been diving into sharing Jesus with those around us as well as growing with the Lord. We are working from my two books, Heaven Bound and Walking The Talk. You can read along as you listen to recent episodes of Loved Always. My website, lovedalways.net, has links to purchase each book. Bring along your Bible as it is the foundation for any book I write to help believers. There are countless scriptures in these books. We will only be able to touch the surface within this framework.
I would like to make sure you have great affordable resources that help you in your journey with the great God we love, serve and worship. Need a tool for group Bible Study or new members at your church? Looking for a gift for the upcoming holidays? Yes, both books are great resources for that too!
As believers, we get the privilege and opportunity to make Jesus famous. Will you join me? The website now has a donation link. I would also invite you to sow into this ministry and partner with me as I continue to share Jesus within every avenue God opens to me. Your prayers and support are always most appreciated.
Please enjoy the verse of the day or leave a prayer request at lovedalways.net.
"The LORD bless you, and keep you; The LORD cause His face to shine on you, And be gracious to you; The LORD lift up His face to you, And give you peace'" (Num. 6:24-26, NASB).
