Strategic Positioning…

Positions are a key strategy when engaging in spiritual warfare. We must evaluate our stance. Are we hiding in a cave, hoping not to be seen? Are we hiding behind someone else when we should be the ones standing in the front? Or are we in standing strong in the front, ready to handle what comes our way?

Here’s the thing: the position we take will determine our victory. For the ones hiding in the cave-we will miss the goodness of the Lord because we have chosen to hide. For the one hiding behind someone-another human cannot save you. For the ones in the front-their confidence is not in their ability but in His ability.

We must stand on the position of victory, because we are already victorious:

Position yourself on victory! We don’t have to hope that we win the battle, we have to know we’ve already won because of what Jesus accomplished on the cross! We don’t have to fight for victory, we fight from victory!

We stand on the promises of the Lord, knowing that they will all come to pass. We stand on our faith because we believe in the One we do not see. We stand on the Word of God, knowing that it is the only truth that matters. We position ourselves to be victorious, because we are victorious!

The goodness of the Lord will only be seen from the place of victory. It’s time for us to come out of the cave and from behind people, it’s time for us to stand-knowing that God is able to win every single battle that we will face. He’s already defeated death, there is nothing to hard for Him to handle.

Where are you standing?

Mental Wellness…

May is Mental Health Awareness Month. Often times, the Lord and Mental Health are discussed as two separate entities. As the One who created us, the Lord and mental health are one in the same! Firstly, we ALL have mental health. Secondly, and most importantly, the Word of God discusses mental health matters and the Lord cares greatly about the state of our mental health.

The Word says so:

Make no mistake about it, we are champions for Jesus and counseling. We also know that the state of our mental health cannot be transformed without Jesus! It is with Jesus that we become well-in mind, body, and spirit. And we understand this truth: “For by wise guidance you can wage your war, And in an abundance of [wise] counselors there is victory and safety.” Proverbs 24:6

On our podcast, “From Worn to Well”, we discuss achieving mental wellness with a clinical psychologist. Check out this snippet:

To hear the entire episode, listen here: Achieving Mental Wellness. Feel free to like, share, and subscribe to our podcast!

Mighty women of God, we no longer have to be ashamed of our mental health. We no longer have to be defined by a diagnosis or defined by people’s preconceived notions about mental health. Our mental health is at the feet of Jesus and with Him, we are on the journey to being well and whole!

Armored Up: The Tongue

The tongue is a powerful tool! The Word of God says so:

We’ve all heard that one, right? While the term “cliché” may come to mind, we must remember that the Word of God is LIFE and there is nothing cliché about the Word of God!

The tongue is an important weapon in this spiritual warfare battle that we are constantly engaged in, woman of God!

From the life perspective of the tongue, this is where we can speak life into dead situations. The tongue can bring dead things back to life: your sick loved one, your dead job, your lifeless marriage, your wayward child. Our tongue speaks the life-filled Word of God! Yes, let’s learn how to arm ourselves with life-giving scriptures, encouragement, and positive words. Let’s use our tongues to communicate the promises of God. Command your mornings. Speak healing words over those who are hurting. Declare and decree the truth of the Lord over your family. There is LIFE in the power of the tongue and we must be ready to speak life at all times!

Let’s look at the tongue as a tool of death, we know how words can hurt right? We know that old saying of “sticking and stones breaking our bones but words never hurting” is a complete lie. But mighty woman of God, did you realize that your tongue can be a tool to kill the schemes and strategies of the enemy?! Oh yes, let’s use our tongues to trample all over the agenda of the enemy! Let’s use our tongues to extinguish those fiery darts coming our way! Let’s put to death those lies from Satan’s mouth! Declare and decree that every witch and warlock have no power over you. Use your tongue to kill the desires of the flesh!

Yes, sister, there is life and death in the power of the tongue. It is time to use that tongue to give life and to put to death the demonic agendas that is trying to rule and reign in our lives.

Let us shout the name of Jesus with our tongues and advance forward, the battle is already won!

Peace and Blessings

To the Broken-hearted…

There’s a song that asks: How Can You Mend A Broken Heart? The songwriter has his own ideas but we know there is only one to way to heal a hurting heart-and that is through Jesus Christ!

Left unattended, the brokenness of a heart can produce bitterness, strife, and jealousy. But when we take all of the broken pieces and give it to the Lord-He’s bound to make us whole again!

Check out a snippet from our podcast, From Worn to Well, that breaks down this very truth:

We know that the Father is near to the heartbroken and that He is waiting for us to run to Him!

Hurting? Clinging to the Father! Need healing? Pursue the Lord! Broken? Let the King put you back together again!

Listen to the whole message here: Where Do Broken Hearts Go? Feel free to like, share, and subscribe to the podcast!

There is good news for the broken-hearted, cling to this truth:

The Power of Persuasion…

Being persuaded or pressured is frequently associated with negative behaviors. However, let’s adjust our perspective of persuasion. Have you ever been persuaded to do something good?

Think about your physical health: haven’t you been compelled to work out or eat better because you were able to see the benefits for someone else? Think about cooking: haven’t you been persuaded to try out a recipe because you watched someone prepare it on YouTube?

The power of persuasion doesn’t always result in drinking, sex, or drugs. Sometimes, you will be motivated to try out something that will benefit your family, your health, or your wealth.

Persuasion worked for Abraham:

So how does this become our testimony? We cling to the Word of God through Jesus Christ!

Sisters, Abraham believed because God said so! He had not seen the promises of God manifested, all of the natural things pointed to the very opposite of what God said-but he persuaded simply by God’s Words!

This must be true for us! We have to know His Word so that we can cling to His Word and by clinging to His Word, we will become persuaded by His Word.

Joyce Meyer, TD Jakes, and your current pastor are great folks-they are not the Word of God! If you can be persuaded by them, imagine what the pure, unfiltered Word of God can do for our lives. It’s time to go back to Bible Study with your Bible, pen, paper, and the Holy Spirit leading the way. It’s time to go back to memorizing scripture and speaking the Word of God over our situations.

It is time to be persuaded by the pure and beautiful Word of God! Abraham heard the direct voice of the Lord. That beautiful, still, small, yet powerful voice must be our sole motivation.

Peace and Blessings

What’s in a name?

“Trust God to be God…” Author Unknown

Such a powerful message! We cry out how much we love God. We exclaim about how much He is our Lord and Savior. We shout about how powerful He is, how amazing He is, and how He holds the whole world in His hands. But then we try to plan, we try to “help the Lord out” by doing it our way, and relying on our knowledge and power. Don’t fret, it’s not too late to recognize the power behind His name! We can began to fully trust in the name of the Lord.

Let’s try it out this way:

Imagine if we trusted God to be God. Imagine if we trusted Him to be all He said He is! Oh how our worlds would shift! As you trust Him to be God over your life, you will begin to feel the foundations shaking! You will see the barriers begin to fall, you will see the mountains move! We will say His name, but will we trust in the power of His name?!

We know His name? Now, let’s trust in His name! He will not fail.

Peace and Blessings

All of Me…

Sisters, let’s be intentional about giving all of ourselves-the beautiful and the messy parts-to the Lord. This can be a challenging task. Women are taught to be presentable at all times. Women are taught that no one will want them if they are too much: too vulnerable, too emotional, too needy. Now here comes the One who says He loves all of us-our endless tears, the snort that comes with a hearty laugh, and the frustrations that so easily beset us. That can be hard to believe but it is absolutely the truth:

The Lord loves all of you-the parts you were told were unlovable, the Lord can handle it. The “hot mess” that you frequently call yourself is considered the apple of His eye. So if the Lord of Lords and the King of Kings is so in love with you, why do you hold back parts of yourself from Him? Declare today that it shall be no more!

Let us pray with you: Lord, may the beautiful woman of God whom encounters this post declare today that she will surrender all of herself to you. You are the Creator of her very life. You are the author and finisher of her faith. May she reject the lies of the enemy and humbly bow before you, her King, who loves every part of her messy, beautiful, simple, and complex life. In Christ name, Amen.

Lifetime Guarantee…

Some products and associations offer a lifetime guarantee of support and assistance. However, those documents often come with with fine print and exceptions. Companies that promise lifetime guarantees fall every day. The assurances that the world offers are temporary, no matter what the verbiage of a contract may say.

This is one of the many reasons why we have to lean on Christ alone. Being a child of God, also offers a lifetime guarantee:

Friends, we know you’ve encountered this Word many times before, but read it slowly, savor that truth! Don’t just gloss over this lifetime guarantee from the Father. It’s so easy to take it for granted. It’s so easy to fall for the schemes of the enemy.

Sisters, there is no fine print in the Word of God! He will never fail! We will fall, we will stumble, and we will mess up-several times! There is no timeline on the Father’s love. His mercies are new each and every morning. His grace is for a lifetime. His love is guaranteed to His children!

Christ paid for this warranty with His life, this guarantee of His protection and provision, His love and care, and His grace and His promises extends for a lifetime-for all of eternity.

In Christ, there is truly a lifetime guarantee.

Peace and Blessings

Fill Me Up!

Do you find yourself on empty? (Check out our post from last week Empty Cup…) If so, we want to encourage you to fill yourself up! We best fill ourselves up by sitting at the feet of the Savior. Emptiness is associated with experiencing a drought. Emptiness can be sadness. Emptiness can mean that you are just unsatisfied. But there is good news, we can find it here:

He will satisfy you! You know how you can eat junk food but still find yourself unsatisfied? Or maybe you can have a simple home cooked meal and be full as a tick? It’s all about the content when it comes to filling yourself up!

We want the Lord! Temporary relationships, meaningless work, toxic friendships will never satisfy! Eating the things of this world won’t fill you up! There is satisfaction in Christ! There is contentment in Christ!

Feeling discontent? Feeling sadness? Feeling dry? Seek the Savior and savor His living water! His Word promises to fill us, never to leave us longing again. Cry out for the Father to fill you up! He will fill you with purpose and direction, He will fill you with love and joy, He will fill you with peace.

This isn’t a cliche, this isn’t a momentary statement, this is truth-because the Father said so! If we are not careful, this world will drain us dry! Oh but we have a Father who will love us back to life! We have a Father that will fill us up with Him!

Let this song minister to you as you seek the Father to fill you up: https://youtu.be/LZzets3JTA4
