hey guys :) i've been a little MIA in the blogging world, so i thought i would share some things that the Lord has been speaking to me. it has been such a beautiful time here. i was a little discouraged yesterday morning, just different things were plaguing my mind more than they should have and i was having trouble giving them over to the Lord. i prayed for a little bit, and it took a while but i finally just decided to just say no to being sad and enjoy what the Lord was doing and speaking as we went through our day! this morning i began to read ephesians 6 and God really opened my eyes to the authority He has, and we have in Him. As Chrsitians, our very presence in the midst of darkness is a DIRECT threat to the enemy- so to stop any further victory, he'll do whatever he can in his power to stop us from going further or to fall back. BUT, "greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world." (1 john 4:4b). Satan may do all that he can in his power, but we can do all that we can in GOD's power- "The Lord is their strength, and He is a saving defense to His anointed" (ps. 28:8) We belong to God's kingdom and are protected by His power, and the powers of darkness have no other option than to submit to His authority in us! Walk in the overwhelmingly-conquering-power of our Lord Jesus Christ.
"Now to Him who is able to establish you according to my gospel and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery which has been kept secret for long ages past, but now is manifested, and by the scrpitures of the prophets, according to the comandment of the eternal God, has been made known to all the nations, leading to obedience of faith, to the only wise God, through Jesus Christ, be the glory forever and ever. Amen." (Romans 16:25-27)
