Monday 5/16/22 – A Better Reality

Lord Jesus, thank You for this day! Thank You for the blessings You continually pour down on my family and me. Lord, I ask that You rain down Your blessings from Heaven on all of Your people, Lord. Father, I thank You for hearing me, I know that You always hear me. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Lord Jesus, I thank You for the world events that are ongoing that are waking many of us up from our sleep. Much like many were asleep in the past when evil crept in and appeared to defeat their land. While these events can look like defeat, I believe there can be no victory without the threat of defeat. I can not shake something that was placed in my spirit when I woke up 2 years ago now; “There is a revival on the horizon, the likes of which we’ve never seen.” You have already won, we just have no idea what paths will need to be taken to have Your victory manifested here, on earth as it is in Heaven. I’m continuing to read BATTLEFIELD OF THE MIND by Joyce Meyer and there are some amazing revelations that make complete sense in my mind now, but I didn’t necessarily have the words to articulate what has happened in my life. I tried to fight the enemy on my own, people have said things in the past that hurt me emotionally and I didn’t necessarily know why they hurt me, I just knew that I didn’t ever want someone to have the power to hurt me like that again. So I showed the enemy, I wasn’t going to let him or others defeat me, I was going to beat him to it. I talked worse to myself than anyone ever had so that no person could hurt me more than I had already hurt myself. I considered myself a believer at this time but I didn’t go to the Bible for answers, I went to the wise one, myself, which seemed like a good idea at the time. I thought I had won and the enemy loved it. I had a really good friend while I was growing up, but even with that really good friend, I did not get much deeper than surface-level conversations. By only having surface-level conversations I was protected. Protected maybe, but possibly worst of all, I was stagnant. No growth could occur because I didn’t allow anything into my life that challenged me, if something did by chance get by my walls of protection, I knew how to numb the pain, I had my coping mechanisms and the other friends I acquired along the way were happy to help. If I had only gone to the Bible for my identity, I mean I called myself a Christian, I believed, but faith without action leaves one with little. If I had only gone to the Bible to understand that I am a child of God and that Jesus… Yeshua died to forgive me of my sins, but I wanted to hold on to them and did successfully for a very long time. I had created my reality, built around what the world taught me, through television, movies, and society. The Bible offers a better reality, but it all starts with our thoughts and the Bible provides a better way to think. Philippians 4:8-9 is one of many verses that teaches us that there is another way to live here on earth. I have also decided to have an attitude of gratitude and what I have found is that when I am thankful for something, I find more to be thankful for in my life. On the contrary, when I complain, I find more things to complain about in my life. I hope these words resonate with another that finds themself in the prison of darkness with no understanding that there is a better way to live life here on earth. I believe it starts with love. Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, and mind. Then, love your neighbor as yourself. Looks like you would have to love yourself before you can follow the commandment of loving your neighbor as yourself like Christ teaches us to do. Love God, learn to love yourself, not your ego but who you truly are in Christ, and then love your neighbor as you have learned to love yourself and we will watch as the walls of the enemy come crumbling down. Join God’s army, and free others from the prisons of darkness they find themselves in and that they currently can’t see a way out of. Offer them the key, the truth, Jesus Christ. -A humble warrior in God’s army

“Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. What you have learned and received and heard and seen in me – practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you.” -Philippians 4:8-9 ESV

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 forever and ever, Amen. -The Lord’s prayer
