 LEARN TO WALK IN THE SPIRIT

 God’s ideal for the believer is that we live our lives in the realm of the Holy Spirit.  Walking in the Spirit, the exercise we should strive for refers to one’s lifestyle.  In other words, we are to live lifestyles characterized by the Person and work of the Spirit of God.  To be led by the Spirit suggests that same Spirit directs our lifestyle.  It means we allow Him to point the way, to navigate us through the turns and intersections of life. Spiritual Warfare 02

When you are truly walking in the Spirit, in line with the Spirit, maintaining your cover and alignment, you cannot be seen; only He can be seen.  When people look at you, they see Him.  When you speak, He speaks.  Walking in the Spirit is not so much you becoming an extension of God the Holy Spirit, but the Spirit of God living in you, living through you, touching lives through you, and blessing others through you.

Spiritual WarfareWalking in the Spirit means you stay in line with God.  It means you do not break the line.  It means you do not get out of line.  You don’ move until it is your turn.   It means you live your life following the lead of the Holy Spirit.

May the blessings of the Lord be upon you this day as you join in the Spiritual Warfare Battles.  Remember, the devil is attacking you through your Mind day and night.  The Lord has equipped you and prepared you for the task, you are to win this Spiritual Warfare Battle. Now stay focus, keep your eye on the prize, which is Jesus Christ, you are a winner and you will win this battle.

This lesson will be continued next week, so please come back and continue to study and prepare yourselves for success.  Share this lesson with your family and friends by reblogging it in your social media networds.

Encouraged by the Word of God

PUT ON THE WHOLE ARMOR OF GOD

Know the truth and the truth will set you free

Know the truth and the truth will set you free

Good Morning to all God’s people where ever you may be, it is Monday Morning, the beginning of a brand new week.  As you leave your homes and families and begin your journey to execute the task that you have been given, we want you to be encouraged by the word of God, with His entire blessings of love, peace and power, to overcome the many trials and tribulations that will come upon you this day

. “PUT ON THE WHOLE ARMOR OF GOD!”

We encourage you, in all that you may do, too know the truth, know the word and use it as your weapon to fight evil wherever it may exist.  For this is truly a brand new day that God has made for you and I to rejoice and be glad in it.  He has chosen each one of you for a very specific task this week and he has given you a purpose for carrying it out, and pointed you in the right direction that will enable you to be successful on your all important assignment.

Now finally, the people of God, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might.  Put on the whole armor of God that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.

Therefore take up the whole armor of God that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm. Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and, as shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace. In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one; and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of Godpraying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication.

To that end keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints, and also for me, that words may be given to me in opening my mouth boldly to proclaim the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains, that I may declare it boldly, as I ought to speak.  (Ephesians 6:10-20 ESV)

Now have no doubts that the devil is waiting to take you down, and keep you from receiving your crown, but the choice is yours, obey the word of God and the devil can never be in charge. PUT ON THE WHOLE ARMOR OF GOD.  We bless this word to you this morning that you will receive it in the manner that it is given and share it with all those that you love as a word of encouragement and protection of their souls, in Jesus name, AMEN!

Now may the peace of the Lord rest and resize with you throughout your journey through space and time this week.  Live, love and enjoy all that has been set before you at the table of blessings, for it is truly yours given in love by the abundant hands of the one who holds all things in the palm of His ever loving hands.

Sunday Prayer Praise and Worship Service 96 Healing

Good Morning My Dear Brothers and Sisters, yes it is Sunday and it is time to rise up and get your praise on.

TIME FOR ALTER CALL:

HOW TO RECEIVE THE GIFT OF ETERNITAL LIFE

What must I do to be saved? This question was first asked by a jailer at Ephesus, who witnessed an earthquake that freed Paul and Silas. Paul and Silas were the Church’s first official evangelists, who had been falsely arrested and beaten and left in his charge. The earthquake came as the climax to a midnight prison cell prayer and praise meeting and it spurred the jailer to consider the condition of his soul.  What must I do to be saved, you asked?  If you truly want to be saved, listen to what the Lord says you must do, “you should first go to God in prayer.  When praying to Him you should tell Him you are sorry for the sinful things that you have done against Him and how you want to do the right thing from now on (1 John 1:9Acts 20:21). Next you should ask Him to forgive your sins through His death payment on the cross (Colossians 2:10-14). Last, make a commitment to God that you will wholly follow His commandments and believe on Him and His Word, with the help of His Holy Spirit (John 14:15).  Congratulations, you are SAVED (John 8:32)! You have become a new person, and you will be able to live a life that is pleasing to God (2 Corinthians 5:14-17 ). Now, God will come into your heart and live with you (Revelation 3:20). This is so you can be close to Him, receive His power, and understand His Word (1 John 3:16Acts1:8John14:26).

Preparing for Spiritual Warfare (Lesson 3 of 4) Continues

Preparing for Spiritual Warfare (Lesson 3 of 4) Continues

 

 SPIRITUAL WARFARE 006

THE HOLY SPIRIT IS THE TEACHER OF ALL TRUTH (JOHN 16:13) AMP

The Bible tells us in John 8:32 know the truth and the truth will set us free.  Freedom is what we all seek.  Freedom to determine our own destiny, and in doing so, we know that we are assured by the word of God that by holding onto His unchanging hands our victory in this race is a fore gone conclusion.

Nevertheless, here is the one thing you must know concerning the truth.  Listen to what the word says, 13But when He, the Spirit of Truth (the Truth-giving Spirit) comes, He will guide you into all the Truth (the whole, full Truth). For He will not speak His own message [on His own authority]; but He will tell whatever He hears [from the Father; He will give the message that has been given to Him], and He will announce and declare to you the things that are to come [that will happen in the future]. (John 16:13) AMP).

SPIRITUAL WARFARE 007Jesus said the Holy Spirit will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come.”  The word guide means, “To show the way in unknown territory.”  God uses the Holy Spirit to grow and edify you, stretch and mature you, to build you up, and then take you to the next level of spiritual maturity.  It is a level that you have never, seen before it is unknown territory.  However, know without a doubt, that you are promised, a personal trainer who is the Spirit of truth.  He will come alongside you to guide you in the new place.

He knows what you need and He will never fail you.  A strange dynamic occurs between a trainer and trainee.  The trainee is always complaining to the trainer about what he cannot do.  The truth of the matter is that a good trainer knows more about the trainee than the trainee does.  He knows where he is weak and where he is SPIRITUAL WARFARE 005strong.  He knows how quickly his muscles will respond to certain kinds of training.  He knows when he is tired or just being lazy.  A really good trainer can look at you and tell you if you’ve been eating the right foods or if you’ve gotten enough sleep the night before.  The trainer knows the trainee’s past history.  He puts the trainee on an exercise program tailored for his needs to achieve the desired goal.  Always during exercise, the trainer is right there, next to the trainee.  He never goes on a coffee break.  He never turns his back.

He takes you to the next level.  Whenever the trainer puts the trainee into weight-lighting position, the trainer makes sure there is enough weight on the bar to help the trainee advance to the next level.  When the trainee gets in weight-lifting position, the trainer is right there, whispering into his ear, “You said you wanted to get stronger.  You said you wanted to grow.  You said you wanted to build endurance SPIRITUAL WARFARE 004and stamina.  Now, lift that weight.”  The Holy Spirit will encourage you by reminding you of the prize of God’s high calling.  He will remind you of times past when you thought you could not carry the weight of your problems, but He was right there showing you how.  Sometimes the trainee tries to negotiate with the trainer.  He will say his load is too heavy or that the trainer requires him to lift too much weight.  “Would you please, sir, take off some of this weight?”  However, the trainer knows what his pupil needs.  He tries to help the trainee get stronger.  He knows the trainee only gets stronger by lifting something heavy.  Likewise, the Holy Spirit knows you cannot exercise yourself unto godliness by doing what you are used to doing, what is easy to do.  He knows you have to go through pain sometimes.  He knows you have to be taken to new plateaus of faith, new levels of understanding in the Word, greater depths in meditation, and further intimacy in prayer.

He stands ready to help.  He will never turn his back on you, because He is also your spotter.  If He sees you straining, and sweating, and about to throw in the towel, He takes notice.  A good trainer always stands close enough to place one finger on the load you are trying to lift.  If it looks like the bar is about to fall, a good trainer will hold it for a spell to give you some rest.  He is there to make sure you do not collapse under too much weight.  After all, He has a promise to keep:”God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able” (1Cor. 10:13).  He will never let the bar fall on you and injure you.

Do you know what it is like to struggle with a heavy load only to have God step in to let you rest?  God puts His Holy Ghost finger underneath your load and lifts it for you.  In the midst of your struggle, you find yourself able to lift your burden.  Before you know it, you hear something in your ear.  Before you know it, you are getting stronger.  You are able to lift up your problems, discouragement, and heartache.  The power of the Holy Ghost helps you to run on in Jesus name.  If you keep working out with your Holy Ghost trainer, you will find after awhile that your burden feels a little bit lighter.  It is not really lighter; it is just you have gotten bigger spiritual muscles.  You have the joy of the Lord, which is your strength.  You have heaven in your view.

He gets results.  I go to the gym regularly.  I have noticed that people who leave the gym have a walk about them.  They have a little more glide in their stride.  They may not even have lost any weight, but they know that as long as they keep going to the gym, one day the pounds will come off.  If you are regularly exercising spiritually, you know your troubles will come off.  You know your trails will one day be outdated.  You know discouragement will not be with you always.  You might as well start thanking your Trainer right now, even if you have not lost a pound.  You know, if you are exercising spiritually, that He is the best Trainer there is.  Moreover, if you look around at some of His other clients, you know that those who stick with Him see miraculous results.

THE LORD’S PRAYER IN SONG BY Charlotte Church:

OUR SCRIPTURE FOR TODAY IS FROM THE BOOK OF PROVERBS 8:6-11 MOTHER WISDOM SPEAKS TRUTH

Hear, for I will speak noble things, and from my lips will come what is right, for my mouth will utter truth; wickedness is an abomination to my lips. All the words of my mouth are righteous; there is nothing twisted or crooked in them.  They are all straight to him who understands, and right to those who find knowledge. Take my instruction instead of silver, and knowledge rather than choice gold, for wisdom is better than jewels, and all that you may desire cannot compare with her.

Preparing for Spiritual Warfare (Lesson 2 of 4)

Spiritual Warfare 02

WEDNESDAY INSPIRATIONAL AND MOTIVATIONAL SERVICES 

IT’S TIME TO HIRE A PERSONAL TRAINER

Good morning my dear brothers and sisters, today is truly the first day of the rest of your blessed life, and the Lord wants you to live this day in His peace and comfort of being.  You are marvelous made to live out your dreams, because you are truly an awesome person and you have greatness in you and you can overcome the Spiritual Warfare that is upon you, now train your body and mind to fight the good fight.

 

 

Earlier on in my life while I was training to become a cross-country cyclist, I learned a great secret.  People who make the most dramatic advances in physical fitness have a personal trainer.  Without someone guiding you, you just randomly work out.  Most of us do not have the kind of discipline we need, so we hire personal trainers.  This was one of the greatest decisions, which I could have ever made, because it helped to prepare the three-dimensional self, which we will discuss in the next lesson.

John 14:26 (Amplified Bible) 26But the Comforter (Counselor, Helper, Intercessor, Advocate, Strengthener, Standby), the Holy Spirit, Whom the Father will send in My name [in My place, to represent Me and act on My behalf], He will teach you all things. And He will cause you to recall (will remind you of, bring to your remembrance) everything I have told you.

Now let us begin with a physical definition of what a personal trainer is:  A personal trainer is a fitness professional involved in exercise prescription and instruction.

Proper exercise prescription may result in improved body composition, physical performance, and health outcomes.  The decision to hire a personal trainer may be related to a perceived ability to facilitate these factors through proper prescription and instruction or factors related to motivation and adherence. A personal trainer will pay close attention to your exercise form, workout routine, and nutrition plan.

Few studies have investigated personal training for men. Personal training in women has been shown to exercise behavior patterns, improve perceptual benefit-to-concern ratio for exercise (decisional balance), and increase confidence to choose exercise in the face of other time demands (scheduling self-efficacy).  Personal training results in higher strength, higher workout intensities, and higher perceived exertion during exercise in women. Although women working with personal trainers do self-select heavier loads than women who did not, the loads used are still below recommended training load percentages.

No matter if we are a man are a woman, we need to make sure we hire the right personal trainer to help us move on to victory.  Always keeping our eye on the prize and never losing sight of where God is trying to take us on this journey.

Now we see in John 14:26 the word “Helper”.  It is a translation of the word Paraclete.  Paraclete means, “To call alongside.”  The Paraclete, which is the Holy Spirit, will stand alongside you as your personal trainer.  He has the perfect approach and methods designed for your success.

The Holy Spirit is always there to remind you of what you already know.  Whenever you begin a training program, some of what the trainer tells you is nothing new.  When the trainer tells you to eat certain things and not others, there is no great news flash in your spirit.  You’ve heard it before.  Stay away from ice cream.  Close your mouth to pie.  Pull away from the table when the cake comes around.  It is nothing new, but the trainer reminds you of these things, things you’ve heard before, never acted on, or stopped acting on.  This is also one of the roles of the Holy Spirit in spiritual fitness.  He reminds you of all those useful things you have been learning all along.

This will concludes lesson two, and we will continue in lesson three on how your personal trainer, The Holy Spirit will guide you through each step towards victory.  Let me remind you to read and meditate on lessons one and two again to get the full benefit of where God is trying to take you in this process of preparing you physically, mentally and spiritually.

Sunday prayer praise and worship service 90 Psalms 23

Good Morning Children of God, if it is Sunday it is time to lift up your Holy Hands in prayer, praise and worship, giving all honors and glory to the Lord, for He is worthy to be praised.  Now join with us for a glorious celebration as we present you His Word for this day.
