The Eagle does not fight the snake on the ground. It picks it up into the sky and changes the battleground, 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 is 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 battleground like the eagle and let God take charge through your earnest prayer.
Just A Bedtime Thought
Everything that kept you up last night and stole your rest, didn’t go away just because you stayed awake worrying. Worry and Fear will keep you up all night, but faith makes a mighty fine pillow. You may not have an answer for your situation, you may not see a way out, you may feel like your heart is so broken it can never be put back together, but God does! Do your family and yourself a favor. Give it to God and go to sleep. God’s got this!
Having a Rough Day?
Lord, interrupt me today
Lord, it’s a busy day, full of things to accomplish just like so many other days gone before.
Whatever is in your past, whatever you have done ... And the devil keeps throwing it up in your face (lying, cheating, debt, fear, bad habits, hatred, anger, bitterness, etc.) whatever it is ... You need to know that God was standing at the window and He saw the whole thing.
He loves you and you are forgiven. He’s just wondering how long you will let the devil make a slave of you.
The great thing about God is that when you ask for forgiveness, He not only forgives you, but He forgets.
Is Strictness the Problem?
A ‘good deal of nonsense is being palmed off today concerning the reaction of a child from over-strictness in parental training.
I sometimes hear, “My parents brought me up so rigidly that a reaction took place in my mind, and I have turned away from religion.” I then ask, “Did they teach you to be honest?” “Yes.” “Were they strict about that.” “Yes”. “Did they teach you to tell the truth?” “Yes.” “Were that strict about that?” “Absolutely”.
