You Are Not Alone

You Are Not Alone

What do you do when you feel broken and hopeless?

Any situation that has caused (or is causing) you deep misery and anguish can be difficult to overcome alone.  You may respond like I once did… holding your head in your hands while crying excessively.  Or maybe you ball your hands in a tight fist ranting cuss words and lashing out venom on innocent bystanders.  Maybe you seclude yourself and gradually descend into self-pity.  Whatever the response, they are all ineffective in gaining true victory over your situation.

If you are tired of hurting, I have good news to share.  God loves you and is ready to bring you into a place of peace, restoration and joy!  God can and will bring you out of anything you encounter – your darkest valley, your unspeakable shame, your unbearable grief, your misfortunes, your depression, your failures, your fears and your seemingly incurable pain.

Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God:
I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee;
yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.
– Isaiah 41:10

All you have to do is seek Him.   

Now is the best time to go towards God.  It does not matter if you have never had a relationship with God before or you cannot remember the last time you spoke to Him.  Today is your day.  Seek Him through prayer, praise and meditation of His Word.  He desires for you to know Him more intimately.  God is ready to show you His power and His response to your situation!

Power Over Your Enemy

Power Over The Enemy

What does your enemy look like?  An enemy, for this purpose, is defined as anything that harms you and opposes the righteousness of God.  Does your enemy disguise itself through an emotion, circumstance or habit?

Emotions are perfectly normal, but if they are not controlled they begin to rule over you and your decision making.  Unrestrained emotions of anger, bitterness, self-pity, greed and fear are very dangerous.  Unchecked, they become an enemy to your spiritual growth.

Circumstances of life can be overwhelming at times.  An unexpected tragedy, an illness, or an end of a serious relationship can attempt to separate you from the love of God.  If they isolate you, they steal your confidence and become an enemy to your faith.

Habits can be good for you.  However, those such as lying, gluttony, procrastination and addictions are detrimental.  Bad habits keep you in bondage and become an enemy to your anointing.

Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions,
and over all the power of the enemy:
and nothing shall by any means hurt you. – Luke 10:19

Meditating on the word of God will combat the escalation of negative emotions.  Daily fellowship with Him can transform bad habits into good ones.  Using every circumstance of life to draw you closer to God provides wisdom for victory in that situation.  When you are with God, you have power over all the ways the enemy may show up in your life.  In addition, nothing will hurt you no matter how intimidating it may first appear.  

Rejoice, you have the power to dominate over any enemy!
