To my amazement I got notification that I was banned from posting to my own social media page yesterday. The notification said I could contact them so I did. I also prayed. And I waited. It started out as panic because I couldn’t figure out what I had done wrong. It ended with praise, before the answer came, because it all belongs to the Lord anyway. I am reminded of the old hymn “Oh what peace we often forfeit, oh what needless pain we bear – all because we do not carry, everything to God in prayer”. It wasn’t five minutes after I prayed that the “ban” was lifted. There’s nothing really great about me, but there is Someone really great within me. That’s what faith is for, to rely on God for little things as well as big things. And to rest in peace – His peace.
Oh beloved, if you have been born again you have been delivered and you have been fully equipped. Fear has no hold on you anymore. You are no longer its slave. You and I may have fearful moments but we have the King of the Universe to turn to. It’s not just saved for someday. It’s saved for every day. We’re not just standbys hoping to make it, hoping there’s no train wreck of our lack of faith. No, beloved, you are full of all the promises of God! You are full of God! Born again by Imperishable Seed! And you have been born into this Most Holy Faith! It’s time to turn the heat up on the enemy, who lies to you because all he can do is lie! It’s time to stretch your faith in God’s direction and ask Him to create in you a clean heart and renew a right spirit – one that believes, knows, and trusts in the Mighty Power of the same spirit that raised Christ from the dead! Your former dead works – fear, worry, pain, anxiety and more – are now faith, prayer, peace, trust, rest and more! You aren’t saved to be good – you’ve been saved to be a powerful, anointed, truth believing, sword bearing warrior of faith!
God loves you and He’s for you! This great faith you’ve been born into is for today! God wants you equipped because He wants you to win every battle, praise in the midst of every storm and pray over every situation. This is your finest hour, to turn the tables on the enemy and live fully alive in the Spirit all the rest of your life!
Isaiah 40:31 But those who wait for the Lord [who expect, look for, and hope in Him] will gain new strength and renew their power; They will lift up their wings [and rise up close to God] like eagles [rising toward the sun]; they will run and not become weary, they will walk and not grow tired. AMP
Romans 8:11 But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.
2 Corinthians 6:7 We faithfully preach the truth. God’s power is working in us. We use the weapons of righteousness in the right hand for attack and the left hand for defense.
