Holly Ridge Happenings

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. 

Don’t fight the enemy in his comfort zone, change the battlegrounds like the eagle and let God take charge through your earnest prayer. You will be assured of clean victory. 

Pray without ceasing.
