Warriors war; that’s what we do

Some people say your  “the momma bear”. Others call is the lioness protecting her cubs. I call it Jesus’ warrior bride covering those people she loves and calls her family. For that matter, this warrior bride can war at the drop of a hat.  Blessed be the Lord God who has taught my hands to war and my fingers to fight.  I love that verse. It’s who I AM-not what I do. I war.

I could be at work and be overtaken with the urge to pray. I’mma pray for a minute then get back to work. I would see something on line that breaks my heart. I excuse myself from my family for a minute and go into my prayer closet and pray until the burden is listed. I will raise up that hedge so that the serpent can slide on in and bite.

prayer and tears

The more I study prayer and deliverance, the more I pray and I am delivered! Russ Dizdar has awesome free mp3’s on his website Shatterthedarkness.com and they are awe sooooommmme. I’ve never felt so alive and engaged in shredding beyond recognition the enemies’ camps.

Remember that time the devil won???!!?!?!?!

Yeah, ME EITHER….It’s because he is ALREADY DEFEATED. JESUS conquered him at Calvary!!!! The cross of Christ stomped death, hell AND THE GRAVE.

the risen Christ

 Come on what are we so afraid of!!!!???? It’s time to engage people of the Living God. He is the GOD OF THE ANGEL ARMIES. And here is one of my favorites

HE LAUGHS AT HIS ENEMIES BECAUSE HE KNOWS HOW THEY END UP. (That is the Passionesta’s version).

People we’ve already won. Jesus paid the price, he did the hard part! All we really need to do is occupy the kingdom and hold it until He comes back. Jesus didn’t say it was gonna be biscuits’ covered with gravy every single day of your life. He said because they hate me (and Father God), they going to hate you! He also said be of good cheer, I have overcome the world (the world system).

Please stop crying bout your past and put your big girl panties on –lace up those boot straps, grab a weapon and stand your post.  No one was ever won for Jesus by a whinny snivelly defeated Christian.

What was that song? They will know we are Christians by our love by our love. Remember that one.

This is how I started the morning.  Psalms 68:1-4

Psa 68:1  To the chief Musician, A Psalm or Song of David. Let God arise, let his enemies be scattered: let them also that hate him flee before him.

Psa 68:2  As smoke is driven away, so drive them away: as wax melteth before the fire, so let the wicked perish at the presence of God.

Psa 68:3  But let the righteous be glad; let them rejoice before God: yea, let them exceedingly rejoice.

Psa 68:4  Sing unto God, sing praises to his name: extol him that rideth upon the heavens by his name JAH, and rejoice before him. (KJV)

 

Lets try the amplified –

 

The God of Sinai and of the Sanctuary

To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David. A Song.

68 Let God arise, and His enemies be scattered;
Let those who hate Him flee before Him.

As smoke is driven away, so drive them away;
As wax melts before the fire,
So let the wicked and guilty perish before [the presence of] God.

But let the righteous be glad; let them be in good spirits before God,
Yes, let them rejoice with delight.

Sing to God, sing praises to His name;
Lift up a song for Him who rides through the desert—
His name is the Lord—be in good spirits before Him.

Does this sound like a Being that is gonna bow down to someone else?

Of course not. He knows the endgame from the beginning. And people, let me tell you–WE WIN!

Saddle up partners! We have to live life on life’s terms. BUT WE HAVE A GOD WHO WINS.–therefore, we win!

Until next time-Yippy Ki AYE!

Thank God for New Beginnings

new-beginnings end

Here we are again; a new year a fresh  start! Many a New Year’s Eve, people around the world swears off old things or behaviors and makes the commitment to start a fresh in the morning. I say, well done! Without a game plan or a destination, how would you know when you win or arrive?

Our past is the foundation on which our lives are built. Sometimes, though, we need to pull out the bad pieces and “firm up” our foundation with new knowledge or new experiences. In other words, “Out with the old and in with the new”. This is another New Year’s phrase that we are all familiar with.

I believe, and trust me, this is my revelation, that because so many people vow to start afresh on January 1 of any given year, that there may be some kind of “something extra”. No magic, no hocus pocus, not even the hokie pokie. Why is it that others throughout time have chosen the New Year to start over? Why have we all tried to start a new job, project, diet then?

Is it because instinctively we know that this time of year is special? I feel in my heart that it is a time for a fresh start. I know what you are thinking. Why do so many people fail then? How about lack of discipline! Come on! You know I’m right.

We’ve all started the race and the enthusiasm of the race carries us only so far. In my own instance, it’s my lack of discipline that sees me though and I give up. What about stamina? Even a certain amount of endurance? We all want those wash board abs but do we want to eat right, exercise vigorously and do the other things we need to do to get them. I say no!

Up until now, passion has carried me. That is only part of it for me. I give in too easily when things start to require more than I’ve ever given. When things become hard, I tuck my tail and run.

But hey, we all fall off our proverbial wagons, boy o. We give up. We all do.

ride the wave

Now…time to buckle up, lace up the boot straps and put on your big person panties. Let ride the wave as far as our initial passion carries us and then jump right in with the discipline. If you fall off the wave, catch the next on. Keep jumping waves until you hit the beach.

Don’t give up, because that’s the worst thing you could do. Look at Einstein and other great inventors. If they would have given up at the first failure we wouldn’t have the light bulb and other great discoveries.

Another important thing for us to do is to keep renewing and adjusting our goals. If you have to do it daily, weekly or even monthly do it. Things are ever changing and that is all we can count on really. Don’t frustrate yourself with an outdated goal.

Let me know if this post has helped you at all. Give us some feedback. And remember… Passion is a POWERFUL force.

2 Corinthians 5:17

Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.– King James Bible “Authorized Version”, Cambridge Edition
