Over the course of the last few weeks I have been a little discouraged to say the least. That isn't to say that i am throwing up my hands and quitting. But it is to say that I am tired of seeing churches, Christians and friends get beat up by life and then Satan step in and try to use life's tragedies to his advantage. That isn't right and I don't think that you have to put up with it at all.
When times get tough - it's time to get closer to God, not father away. When our pride rises up it will encourage us to quit, give up and blame God for the whole thing. In the process, relationships are ruined and people feel that pain of prides price. Life isn't fair but don't blame God for it. Satan is in this world and he will do his best to destroy your life. For the record, he doesn't care about you at all. Really! He knows that if he can hurt you he can hurt God. That's why he is attacking your life. You're nothing more than a pawn to Satan. Get it? You are worthless in his sight. But Jesus sees you as a brother/sister. The Bible says that we are seated in heavenly places with Him. If we are related to Jesus then we are princes/princesses with Christ. Start seeing your life from your position instead of from your situation. (Kudos to Pastor Jeff Leake for some of this.)
So what are we going to do?
This Sunday is dedicated to those who want to walk away from Satan's lies and deception and walk in the liberty that Jesus gives us through the cross. Come ready to give Jesus your burdens and to tell the Devil to get lost. Is it time for you to move from the margins of your life and start living in the middle of it? We are going to worship God like we have never worshipped Him before and we know that God will be in our midst. Get ready for this Sunday!! I am believing God for some BIG breakthroughs!!
