Put on JESUS!

The Word of God says that our battle is not carnal but spiritual in the pulling down of strongholds. The Word of God says for us to be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might and put on the whole armour of God for we wrestle not against flesh and blood but against powers and principalities and the rulers of the darkness of this world and against spiritual wickedness in high places. Put on the whole armour of God so that you can stand against the tricks (remember, all he has is tricks) of the evil one and in that day after you have done all stand.

Put on the helmet of salvation, the breastplate of righteousness, the belt of Truth, the shoes for the preparation of the Gospel of peace, above all else take up the shield of faith so that you can quench all the fiery darts of the wicked and take up the Sword of the Spirit which is the Word of God.

The way I understand these scriptures, is that they are not saying we don't battle in a physical sense. But that the underlying cau…

A Christian Mom

I believe that I can speak for most Christian Moms. We love our children unconditionally. We pray for them daily. And our heart's desire is for them to know true happiness. As a Christian Mom myself, from the time our children were born, I stood upon God's promise: " That if we raise our children up in the way that they should go, when they are older they will not depart." Our children are now 21 and 19. When they were born we dedicated them to the Lord and taught them about God and His Son(their Savior) Jesus Christ and how much they were loved, not only by us but loved even more by their Heavenly Daddy. We taught them that God knew them even before we did. He knew them before they were conceived and born into this world. To this very day we still teach our children about God and what His Word has to say about them and life in general.

Believe me when I say; "Our children have taught us a few things about life as well." We have not been perfect parents, w…

Freedom to Freedom!

May we open up the prison doors of our heart and set those we hold captive there free!
When we do this, we will then know true freedom for our own life as well.
Physically speaking a prisoner is held captive until he pays his debt in full. Spiritually speaking we can try and hold someone captive behind the prison doors of our heart until they pay us what we believe they owe us. And we will refuse to open those prison doors and release them until they do just that. We offer them no mercy and grace, and thus no forgiveness. We are hurting no one but ourselves when we do this. We may think that we have the power over the one that we are trying to spiritually hold captive, by continually making demands of them, and not being satisfied until they give us what we think they owe us. This will not work, because we all have been given free wills. This is why I say that we are only hurting ourselves. It is like beating our head against a brick wall. Spiritually speaking, when we try to hold …
