With evil in every part of the Earth, there is still evidence of hope for the restoration of America, and that the will of God will prevail. During this week of Thanksgiving, there is much to be hopeful and thankful for.

We don’t always see it, but when we pause to look for that ray of hope, it is to be found, and not always where and when we would expect to find it.

Romans 5:20 says: … where sin abounded, grace did much more abound:

Jesus is the author and finisher of our faith (Hebrew 12:2), and in Him, strength and hope are ever present.

When we stay focused on Jesus, and not on the vile things of this world, we will discover the ability to persevere, even in the most difficult times. Knowing His great love for us all can bring us to a place of great gratitude.

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

John 3:16

Jesus is the light of the world (John 8:12), and He leads us out of darkness and into that glorious light of salvation, deliverance, restoration, and healing. Through Him, we have all things necessary for life and godliness.

According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:

II Peter 1:3

Let us all be grateful today and remember all of the blessings that the Lord has given us. Let us walk in love and peace today and remember to show kindness to all, even those who are not kind to us. Today is a day to let the light of Jesus shine through us and bless someone else, the way that God has blessed us.

Say this faith declaration out loud: Lord, thank you for every way that you have blessed me and my family. Your blessings have been abundant, and today we will let your love flow through us to bless others. Your mercy and grace are ever flowing in our lives. Thank You!

Scripture Reading:

This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.

Psalm 118:24

Let brotherly love continue. Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.

Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.

With extreme violence on the rise and terrorist attacks occurring with more frequency, many Christians are asking, “Lord, what can we do to protect ourselves and our

The Lord gives us the answer in Ephesians 6:18:

 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;

We can see that there are two parts to this: (1) praying in the Spirit, and (2) praying for each

Praying in the Spirit is our first line of defense. The Holy Spirit is our guide and He shows us things to come. When we spend time praying in the Spirit, God will be able to reveal things to us,
including ways to keep ourselves and our families safe. At times, that may come as a prompting to stay home on a particular day, or take a different route home from work.

When we yield to that prompting by the Spirit of God, He keeps us safe, healthy, and prosperous. God ALWAYS wants what’s best for us. When we listen carefully for His voice … He will teach us and guide us in the way in which we are to go; He will counsel us with His eye upon us. (See Psalm 32:8.)

If you don’t know how to hear God’s voice, practice praying in the Spirit with a pen and paper handy. As you pray, write down what comes to you. This may seem more like your own thought, but if it brings clarity and peace, then it was likely from God.

The more you practice, the more accustomed you will get to sensing His Presence and hearing His voice.

The Lord has also directed us to pray for each other. We should be continuously holding up our
fellow brothers and sisters in Christ in prayer. The Lord Jesus said:

Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.  For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.

Matthew 18:19-20

There is power and strength in numbers, especially when we come before the Lord in agreement. And to be in agreement, all parties to the prayer need to have faith and doubt not. Doubt will
weaken the prayer, the same as a frayed thread weakens a rope.

Time in the Word and relationship with God will produce the kind of faith that overcomes any doubt. God’s Word can never fail, and He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. Therefore, pray without ceasing, listen for the Holy Spirit to direct you, and take the needs of others to the throne of God.

Say this faith declaration out loud: Lord, thank you for protecting me and my family. I thank You that I hear Your voice and not the voice of evil. Thank You for the Holy Spirit, Who comforts and guides us. Thank you for the angels that are encamped around us. I will pray to you without ceasing, and I will be diligent to lift up the needs of others. Thank you for placing a hedge of
protection around my home, my neighbors, and my community.

Scripture Reading:

And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken.

Ecclesiastes 4:12

Bless the Lord, ye his angels, that excel in strength, that do his commandments,
hearkening unto the voice of his word.

Psalm 103:20

And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

How To Be Ready To Stand In The Hour Of Temptation

Trending News This Week:

  • The University of Missouri police are cracking down on “hate speech.”
  • A UK university banned “conservatives” from a censorship conference on the grounds that their presence might “offend someone.”
  • A self-proclaimed “liberal” university professor says that even he is alarmed at how “liberal” his students have become.

Will the First Amendment to the Constitution survive the increasing amount of
intolerance to “freedom of speech”? Will all biblical references be banned on college
campuses as more students become “offended” at the mention of God? Are Christian
students at risk of jail time for standing up for their beliefs?

It is alarming how the mention of Christ is now considered “hate speech,” and now carries a threat of punishment, including being ostracized from your community, expelled from school, and even jailed.

While this anti-Christian sentiment has been the norm in many parts of the world for a long time, it is very unsettling for many in America, where more than 50 percent of the population still identify with Christianity.

In America, we have long thought that we were immune from such intolerance towards Christ as our savior, but it is alarmingly evident that Christianity is under attack in the United States,
especially on university campuses.

When we come under attack for our Christian beliefs, we must remember that the world hated
Jesus first.

“If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you.

John 15:17-19, NKJV

This is not meant to instill fear in us, but to remind us that we are not of this world; we belong to the Kingdom of God, and in Him, there is safety and protection.

… In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”

John 16:33, NKJV

And through Him, we are also overcomes, but we must be deeply rooted in the Word to endure the persecution.

When persecution comes, as it did to Peter, Jesus’ disciple, will you deny Jesus, as Peter did, or will you stand firm? Jesus told Peter in advance that he would deny Him three times. Peter swore that he would never deny Christ, but in the hour of persecution, Peter’s convictions waned.

And Peter remembered the word of Jesus who had said to him, “Before the rooster crows, you will deny Me three times.” So he went out and wept bitterly.

Matthew 26:75, NKJV

The only way to be sure that you will stand steadfast in your profession of Christ is to be rooted and grounded in the Word of God. If your roots are shallow, you will be easily toppled. So it is wise for us all to spend time in the Word daily, and commune with God in deep, heartfelt prayers, seeking His strength and guidance.

My son, give attention to my words; Incline your ear to my sayings. Do not let them
depart from your eyes; Keep them in the midst of your heart; For they are life to those who find them, and health to all their flesh..

Proverbs 4:20-22

Spending time with the Lord daily will keep you strong in spirit, soul, and body, and you will be able to withstand the hour of temptation.

Say this faith declaration out loud: Lord, I commit to spending time with you daily, so that I am well-prepared for the hour of temptation. And when I am persecuted, I will not open my mouth in anger or defense, but I will yield to the Holy Spirit, as He will give me the words to say. I will
endeavor to walk only in love, even towards those who do evil towards me.

Scripture Reading:

But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear;

I Peter 3:15, NKJV

See that no one renders evil for evil to anyone, but always pursue what is good both for yourselves and for all.

I Thessalonians 5:15, NKJV

Let your speech always be with grace, seasoned with salt, that you may know how you ought to answer each one.

It Is Time To Fight

  • High school football coach suspended for praying with his team.
  • Chick-fil-A, a fast-food restaurant founded by a Southern Baptist family, recently sponsored LGBT events, despite publically standing for traditional marriage in 2012.

Christian beliefs and values are under attack, and Christians themselves are under
pressure to set aside their deeply-held beliefs.

Where is the Church? What has happened to the moral compass of this once-great nation? Why are more Christians not fighting for their religious freedom rights, according to the First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America? Is this what our brave soldiers fought and died for in WWI and WWII?

Church, it is time to wake up and reclaim what the devil has stolen. There is a battle going on. If we don’t engage the enemy right now with our full artillery of spiritual weapons, it may be too late.

Every day, more and more ground is taken by the devil. Very, very soon every church in America may find compromise being preached from the pulpit, and being accepted by those who sit in the pews. What will pastors do when they are forced to choose between upholding God’s holy Word and facing severe persecution? Many churches and denominations have already elected to push God out rather than risk losing members and money and having to deal with potential law suits.

The prophet Daniel warned us about Satan’s end-time plan:

His power shall be mighty, but not by his own power; He shall destroy fearfully,
And shall prosper and thrive; He shall destroy the mighty, and also the holy people.

Daniel 8:24

Unfortunately, the devil has been quite successful in his goal to derail the Church. Daily we see the wheat fields being more overrun by the tares. But the Lord has told us what will happen to the wicked:

Behold, the day of the Lord cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it.

Isaiah 13:9

Do not succumb to the wiles of the devil. Instead, stand up and fight for what belongs to you. Fight to uphold God’s Word. Fight for righteousness and morality. Fight for all things that are noble, pure, lovely, and of good report. It is time to take back our Promised Land.

Say this faith declaration out loud: Lord, I love you, and I am so grateful that Jesus suffered and died for me. I will not give in to pressure to turn from God and embrace the devil’s evil ways. I will stand strong and trust You to protect me, even in this exceedingly wicked time.

Scripture Reading:

But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.

James 1:14-15

Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight! Which justify the wicked for
reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him!

Isaiah 5:20-21, 23

Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as
instruments of righteousness unto God.

Romans 6:13

How To Replace Fear With The Word Of God

Trending News This Week:

  • More than 260 people have died in Afghanistan during a magnitude-7.5 earthquake, the third largest to hit the region in the last 40 years.
  • A Category 5 hurricane, the strongest land-falling, Pacific hurricane, hit southwest Mexico, with wind gusts exceeding 200 mph.
  • Historic, South Carolina flooding killed 17 people.

With severe weather phenomena on the rise, many people are wondering if these are
truly the last days. How do we know? What do we do to prepare?

With many, many things to be concerned about these days, we must remember that He Who lives in us is greater than he who lives in the world. We need to know that in these troubled times we can rely on the Holy Spirit to be our Comforter and our Guide, and to show us things to come.

Psalm 91:1-2 says:

He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.

When we put our faith and trust in the Lord, He will protect us, strengthen us, and provide for us. He will neither leave us nor forsake us. This means that He is watching over us, and as long as we hearken unto His voice, we will hear the things that He is saying to us and we will know what to do when trouble strikes.

Matthew 24:6-8 tells us:

And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.

Anyone can see that the world is certainly experiencing all of these troubles right now, but the Lord has told us to worry not.

Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day; Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday. A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.

Psalm 91:5-7

Worry and fear will not serve us or protect us, but it will allow the devil to gain a foothold. In these last days, it is more important than ever to guard ourselves from attacks of the enemy, who would like nothing better than for fear and panic to grip us to the point that we lose faith in God and His promises of protection.

It is so important to be very mindful of everything going on around us and to stay clothed in the full armor of God.

Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:

I Peter 5:8

If we let our guard down for even a moment, the devil will waste no opportunity to attack. Don’t give him that opportunity; stay in the peace of the Lord.

Say this faith declaration out loud: I refuse to fear or worry; I choose to stay in the perfect peace of God, knowing that he loves me and will guide me and protect me. I will listen closely for His voice and I will stay near to Him. I will not allow the devil to pull me off track with fear about things that I cannot control.

Scripture Reading:

I sought the Lord, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.

Psalm 34:4

There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling. For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.

Psalm 91:10-12

… Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine.

Isaiah 43:1

Why It Is Necessary To Address Sin In The Church

Trending News This Week:

  • First Greater Church of Lucifer to open doors in Texas
  • The Dutch Reformed Church is the latest denomination to recognize same-sex relationships
  • The demise of the Church: what can be done to stitch the Church back together?

The Church is in serious decay and many are wondering if there is any hope left to rebuild it.

With the ever-increasing threat of World War III, more terrorist attacks, and a devastating financial collapse, many are wondering why the prayers of the saints aren’t being heard. Perhaps it is because the Church itself has been under heavy attack and has been slowly slipping into the grasp of Satan.

The Church seems to have forgotten its position of authority, and has allowed darkness to become the ruling force.

Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?

Romans 6:16

More and more churches today are giving in to the demands of the people to preach a “coexist” type of message. As they do, the Church as a whole becomes weaker and weaker. With every act of “tolerance,” we move further from the Lord.

And if any man obey not our word by this epistle, note that man, and have no company with him, that he may be ashamed. Yet count him not as an enemy, but admonish him as a brother.

II Thessalonians 3:14-15

The Word is clear that we aren’t even to keep company with a person who is not being obedient to God. Why, then, are our churches disregarding the specific direction of the Lord?

In I Corinthians 5, the church was admonished for allowing a man who had slept with his step-mother to remain in church. Paul told the church to deliver the man over to Satan for the destruction of his flesh, that his spirit may be saved.

Paul said: Know ye not that a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump? (I Corinthians 5:6).

It is important that the Church understand that a little bit of sin can corrupt an entire congregation. Thus, there should be no tolerance for sin in the Church or in our homes. Sin is like cancer—just a little bit can spread and affect an entire body.

Say this faith declaration out loud: I will put the Lord’s Word above every circumstance and every relationship. If someone I know has strayed from the Word, I will pray for them, but I will not keep company with them. I confess that Jesus is Lord, and His Word is what rules my life. I will be obedient to Him by refusing to allow sin into my home, my ministry, or any other aspect of my life.

Scripture Reading:

Now I myself am confident concerning you, my brethren, that you also are full of goodness, filled with all knowledge, able also to admonish one another.

Romans 15:14, NKJV

If your right eye causes you to sin, pluck it out and cast it from you; for it is more profitable for you that one of your members perish, than for your whole body to be cast into hell.

Matthew 5:29, NKJV

Do not be deceived: “Evil company corrupts good habits.”

I Corinthians 15:33, NKJV

Rampant Sin-How To Do Battle Effectively

Trending News This Week:

  • Sporting goods store kicks mom out after complaining about man in women’s bathroom.
  • Presidential candidate’s pro-life stance is offensive to many women who support the right to choose.
  • 2.3 percent of the U.S. population identify as being gay, lesbian, or bisexual.

Current U.S. news headlines point to a nation that is in serious moral decay. How does the Word of God teach us to address these issues? Where do we find hope when things seem to be spiraling out of control?

No matter what the issue is, we must remember always that the Bible contains the answer. Mark 12 tells us that the first commandment is to love the Lord; the second commandment is to love our neighbor:

. . . The first of all the commandments is . . . The Lord our God is one Lord: And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment. And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.

Mark 12:29-31

Love is the answer. We are commanded to love our fellow man as we love ourselves.

Matthew 5:19 says: Whoever then annuls one of the least of these commandments, and teaches others to do the same, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever keeps and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

The Ten Commandments of the Old Testament were under the law, but the New Testament teaches that love covers a multitude of sins. That does not mean that we are to turn a blind eye to sin, but we are to remember that Jesus died on the cross for the world, even those who are different, lost, confused, or living a life of sin.

To be clear, sin of any kind is not to be condoned or supported in any way, but we are to do spiritual battle against the devil, and not fleshly battle against our neighbors. Jesus forgave us, just as He expects us to forgive others. Unforgiveness hurts everyone, especially the one who refuses to forgive. A world filled with the overflowing love of Christ will do more to unite us all in peace and conquer sin than all of the armies put together.

So, when you encounter a person who appears to be lost:

  • Let the light of Jesus shine through you.
  • Honor and glorify the Lord by displaying love and not hate.
  • Do your battle against principalities at home in your prayer closet.

Say this faith declaration out loud: Though I hate sin, I love my fellow man. I realize that the enemy wants to divide people and families through hate and conflict. I refuse to give in to the enemy by succumbing to his evil schemes. I will love others as I love myself, and I will battle the devil on a spiritual level, not a natural one.

Scripture Reading:

And above all things have fervent love for one another, for “love will cover a multitude of sins.”

I Peter 4:8, NKJV

For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.

Ephesians 6:12, NKJV

And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing. Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up;

I Corinthians 13:3-4, NKJV

Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

I Corinthians 13:4-7

Fearing Giants More Than God

  • Islamic State militants have blown up the Arch of Triumph, a major monument in the 2,000-year-old Roman city of Palmyra.
  • The International Monetary Fund cut its global growth forecast, citing China’s economic slowdown, which has hammered commodity prices and hurt the emerging markets that export them, and even rippled to the U.S. by sparking a sell-off in stocks.
  • NATO says Russian ground troops are in Syria; Turkey’s airspace has been violated again.

Conflict in Syria is escalating, along with tension between the U.S. and Russia. Meanwhile, global economies are collapsing. Is prayer enough to change the direction of these devastating events? What promises from the Lord can we stand on to claim protection?

There are 365 verses in the Bible that tell us not to fear—basically, one for every day of the year. Why do you think God emphasized that point? Because we are to remember, no matter how bad things appear, that He is our shepherd, our refuge, our shield and buckler, under His wings we abide. He has promised that He will neither leave us nor forsake us.

The enemy tries to get us into a cycle of fear, which opens the door for him to attempt to bring destruction upon us. We must choose, though, to put on the full armor of God and resist him. James 4:7 tells us: Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

It is an active decision to resist the devil. You must consciously determine that you will abide in the promises of God and stand steadfast on the Word.

Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:

Ephesians 6:13-17

Victory and protection come only when we obey God and resist the devil. When we abide in His Word, His Word will abide in us, and we will be overcomers of every fiery dart of the enemy.

Say this faith declaration out loud: “I will not fear. Instead, I will put on the full armor of God and stand strong against the enemy, wearing the shield of faith, the helmet of salvation, and the breastplate of righteousness. My sword is the Word of God, which I will wield to defeat the enemy every time he tries to come against me.”

Scripture Reading:

. . . “Be strong and courageous! . . . Do not be afraid or discouraged, for the Lord will personally go ahead of you. He will be with you; he will neither fail you nor abandon you.”

Deuteronomy 31:7-8, NLT

I prayed to the Lord, and he answered me. He freed me from all my fears.

Psalm 34:4, NLT

The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul. The Lord shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.

  • Hurricane Joaquin, the third of the Atlantic hurricane season, has strengthened into an extremely dangerous, category 4 storm as it nears the Bahamas

Current news headlines are riddled with stories that rouse fear and uncertainty and threaten to shake everything that can be shaken. Acts of random violence erupting in our schools, devastating storms, and senseless mass deaths in the past weeks can bombard your faith and may tempt you to wonder where God is in all of these things. But don’t succumb to the trending news, but rather stand fast on God’s promises.

One of the greatest Scriptures in all of the Bible is found in the 13th chapter of the book of
Hebrews, verses 5 and 6: … For he (God) hath said, I will never leave thee not forsake thee. So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.

When God says something, then we can say it also. You can take that promise and incorporate in any promise of God.

  • Let the weak says, “The Lord is the strength of my life.”
  • Let the sick say, “With His stripes I am healed.”
  • Let the troubled say boldly, “God is my refuge and strength, the present help in time of trouble.”
  • Let the afflicted say, “Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the Lord delivers them out of them all.”

Take every promise of God, and from now until Jesus comes, boldly claim it, believe it, and stand upon it. It is the unshakeable, unchangeable, impregnable, infallible Word of the Living God!

It is God’s will that we be bold as lions in claiming His promises. Whatever your situation or need, God wants the very best for you. Be bold in claiming it!

Once you know that God is not only able, but that He is also willing to meet your need, you can go on to the next step: Cut Him loose to do it. Loose Him to work in your circumstance on the basis of His revealed will. Let Him move in your behalf on the basis of His Word.

It’s time to take the limits off God!

Say this faith declaration out loud: “From now until Jesus comes, I will boldly claim, believe, and stand upon the Word of God which is unshakeable, unchangeable, impregnable, and infallible.

Scripture Reading:

It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man.

Psalm 118:8

Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.

I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye.

Current news headlines reflect the turmoil happening every day around us. But, if you keep your eye on God, who has already defeated the work of the enemy at the cross, and continue to learn to walk in righteousness, then His blessings, victory, peace, and protection will surround you.

God has positioned you for victory. He has set before you new spiritual territory and is telling you, “Go up and possess it!”

  • It is time for you to walk in the power God has planned for you.
  • It is time for you to press on into the perfection that is possible in Christ.
  • It is time for you to walk in one-hundred percent victory over Satan, the flesh, and the world.
  • It is time for you to enter into a place of total trust and faith in God that will enable you to look at every circumstance absolutely free from worry, knowing that God will give you victory.

Your spiritual inheritance, including all the covenant promises of God, is yours! Legally, they belong to you. However, having the promises is not the same as taking possession of them. To enter into this new spiritual territory, you must be willing to walk in obedience to God and His Word. You must be willing to go into battle and take dominion over the enemy in your life.

Satan will do everything possible to get you to turn back and disobey God. He will try to get your eyes on the giants of your weaknesses and inabilities. He will make you think you are too weak spiritually, that you have too many problems, and that your faith is weak.

Israel’s victory over their enemies was not based upon their human strength and abilities. It was not dependent upon the strength or weaknesses of their enemies. Their victory was de­pendent upon God’s ability. They were to go into battle against their enemies, but it was God Who was going to drive out the enemy and give them victory.

Israel was defeated because they had their eyes focused upon their own limited strength instead of upon the power of Almighty God and His faithfulness to keep His promises and give them victory.

God has set before you a new spiritual territory. He has told you to take possession of it. His one requirement is obedience. Your ability to walk in one-hundred percent obedience to God is not dependent upon your own limited strength; it is dependent upon God’s ability. If you keep your eyes on your own strength, you will be tempted to turn back.

By faith, Caleb looked beyond the giants, beyond his own limited strength, and saw the power of God. He was convinced that God would deliver them out of the hands of their enemies, just as He had promised. He said, “… We are well able to overcome it … if the Lord delights in us, then He will bring us into this land and give it to us …” (Numbers 13:30; 14:8). You must now, by faith, begin to look beyond your own limited strength and keep your eyes upon God’s ability. You must choose to obey. You must yield yourself to God and walk in obedience in His strength!

Say this faith declaration out loud: “I will walk in the power God has planned for me. I will press on into the perfection that is possible in Christ. I will walk in one-hundred percent victory over Satan, the flesh, and the world.”
