Encouragement not of this World

God gives encouragement with every communication and prompts me to do the same for all of you. I live to stay in constant prayer for your protection, covering of peace, and divine health for the lives of you and your loved ones. God has told us that it is His Holy Spirit that ‘quickens’ (brings to life) our mortal bodies; we know that the Holy Spirit, Son, and Father have come to make their home within each one of us. So, for this reason, we hold to the Truth of the power that works inside of us; ever walking by Faith not by sight, holding to our profession of having been made whole in Christ Jesus. Because we are instructed by God’s word to keep His sayings before our eyes at all times, and since we know Jesus is the Word written as instructions in the Holy Bible, we daily search the scriptures for their life giving words that sustains us in divine health. His promises grow into ever increasing Faith; now bringing us into a deeper relationship with our Lord, where we begin to hear His voice within our own spirit guiding our steps each day. With this level of connection, one begins to hold a steady focus on Jesus Christ, the author and finisher of our Faith. We learn of His divine purpose and how He wants to accomplish His will in our lives here on this earth. So we yield to His voice, always listening for that prompting inside of our inner man. To be filled with God’s Holy Spirit in this way, we can no longer be tossed to and fro by the accusations of the enemy that would try to destroy us. We begin to recognize their tactics, taking hold of every thought, bringing them into obedience of Christ. The moment we resist evil, the devil must flee. We know, therefore we speak, commanding the enemy to go and taking hold of the power we have in the name of Jesus, our Savior. In this way, we will begin to see victory at every moment and with every turn; becoming stronger in our battle against the principalities and rulers of the darkness of this world.

Therefore, I encourage you to put on the whole armor of God spoken of in Ephesians 6, that you may stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of Truth and having put on the breastplate of Righteousness, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of Peace. In all circumstances taking up the shield of Faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one; and taking the helmet of Salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God, praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. I encourage you all the more to take your stand and see the victory that the Lord, Jesus, has provided for you. Walk in your divine health and be made whole!

Praise and strength go hand in hand. When you give God praise, He gives you strength. When you thank God in advance for the answer, that’s what keeps you encouraged.

Remember, you’re not going to stay strong in faith by complaining. Complaining drains you of strength and energy. You’re not going to stay determined if you’re talking about how bad it is. No, switch over into praise. “Business may be slow, but Lord, I want to thank You that You prosper me even in a desert.” “The people coming against me may be powerful, but Lord, I want to thank You that You are all-powerful.” Praise will keep you moving forward!

So often we think, “I’ll give God praise after the problem turns around.” But if you don’t learn this principle to thank God in advance, you won’t have the strength you need to wait for the promise. Every morning when you wake up, start the day by saying, “Father, thank You that my dreams are coming to pass. Thank You that this problem is turning around. Thank You that You are bigger than this obstacle.” Keep praising Him and keep receiving His strength so you can boldly embrace the victory He has for you!

BE ENCOURAGED, BE BLESSED, SHINE YOUR LIGHT!
