The eagle does not fight the snake on the ground. 

It picks it up into the sky and changes the battle ground, and then it releases the snake into the sky.The snake has no stamina, no power and no balance in the air. It is useless, weak and vulnerable unlike on the ground where it it powerful wise and deadly. 

Take your fight into the spiritual realm by praying and when you are in the spiritual realm God takes over your battles.

What ever use man makes of the bible, the standards of truth, the standard itself remains fixed, tried, and unimpaired. 

When I read a great author, such as Lord Bacon, I find that time has discovered many errors, and rendered obsolete many positions, to be found in that most comprehensive of human minds. But, I see that time can take nothing from the Bible.

Lets not be so quick to expose everybody else’s sin, when God has been so merciful to cover ours. 

Everything you go through as a Christian is a training exercise behind which God has a divine purpose.

 “Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” Matthew 6:34

We better stop disliking people over what we heard and be thankful God isn’t disliking us over what He knows!

God has given us: 

Eyes, not to judge others but to look beyond situations;

Mouth, not to criticize but to speak for the truth;

Hands, not to punish but to give a helping hand;

Ears, not to be insensitive but to listen and aid those in pain.

Everything God gave us has it’s purpose. Use them for the greater glory of the Lord.

Did you know our mind  is our garden? Our thoughts are the seeds. We can grow flowers or we can grow weeds.

It is not the length of life, but the depth of life that matters.

Daily prayer will diminish your cares. 

The secret of success is to start from scratch and keep on scratching.

 I am careful not to confuse excellence with perfection. Excellence, I can reach for, perfect is God’s business! 

 When you reach the end of your rope, you will find the hem of His garment!
