Sunday 4/25/21 – Hot Potato

So, following the Holy Spirit does not come without doubts and insecurities, at least not for me.  The difference between old me and new, transformed me is the difference between night and day, for starters.  New me gives any doubts, fears, anxiety, worry, stress, etc up to God.  I’m striving to have a Teflon finish where the attacks from the enemy no longer stick and go straight to God.  It’s a little like “hot potato” the quicker I can recognize the attacks from the enemy the faster I can realize that I’m fighting against another person and not the true enemy.  The enemy is given strength and satisfaction when he can set up the show, sit back with his pop corn and enjoy the show as he attempts and is succeeding with breaking down the family units of the world.  First of all, he is no longer welcome in and around me, my family and friends, not that he was welcome before.  However, when you don’t know he’s there, lurking in the background, you have no idea how to defeat him or even that you should.  He still tries to sneak in every chance I let my guard down, even a little but he is not getting the satisfaction of an entertaining show but rather disappointment after disappointment for the evil one these days.  Jesus has defeated satan and he has no power other than the power of being hidden and getting power from the doubts, fears and worries he places in us and around us.  We must put on the full armor of God on a daily and sometimes more frequent basis. -A humble warrior in God’s army

“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in His mighty power.  Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the Heavenly realms.” Ephesians 6:10-12 NIV

Our father who art in Heaven, hallowed be thy Name.  Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven.  Give us this day, our daily bread.  And forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors.  Lead us not into temptation and deliver us from evil.  For Thine is the Kingdom, and the power, and the glory for ever and ever.  Amen -The Lords prayer

Thank You Lord for this day that you have given me.  Thank You for this idea you’ve placed on my heart and while this is a challenge for me to navigate, You are by my side and helping me every step of the way and this is much less daunting than writing an entire book from scratch.  Thank You Lord, praise You Lord, bless You Lord. Amen.
