It is very common to find people who had a great day in their church service on Sundays but who ended up having what I liken to a “hellish week vacation”. That is, they had their week full of contentions from the pit of hell. The enemy bombarded them with all manners of trouble. The great Sunday service blessings were never sustained nor profitable during the week. The scripture says, “For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.
Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession.
For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.
Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.” Heb.4:12-16. (KJV).
The devil is historically and presently noted for wrestling the promises of God from people, and distorting the word of God so that those who initially received it with joy get confused and lose out altogether (see Genesis 3).
The devil lets loose the demons to heap up troubles to ruin people’s day.
– You win by holding on to the faithfulness of God and the integrity of the word of God. God is more committed to helping you than you can ever understand. The just live by faith, according to the word of God.

– Be strong and bold. These challenges are not new and God has overcome them every time in people’s lives.
– Hold on to your confession of the victory won by the Lord. Your word is very important for now and your future. Avoid foolish talk by all means.

I am here as a friend.
God bless you.
You are limited by the thoughts of your heart and the words of your mouth. Be careful!
It may happen now or later but it certainly happens that what you allow to dominate your thoughts and talk about especially concerning your life and your situations are just going to become your reality. The scripture says in Mathew 9:920-22,
“And, behold, a woman, which was diseased with an issue of blood twelve years, came behind him, and touched the hem of his garment:
For she said within herself, If I may but touch his garment, I shall be whole.
But Jesus turned him about, and when he saw her, he said, Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole. And the woman was made whole from that hour.”
This woman concluded in her heart what she wanted out of her encounter with Jesus and she got it.
It is important that you monitor your thoughts and your words. Don’t say things you have not thought through. Watch what people say about you and reject every evil word spoken to you or about you.
The word of God says:
“No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of me, saith the Lord.” Isaiah 54:18 (KJV)
Jesus is our righteousness and evil words of people against us will amount to nothing and will be frustrated. This is our heritage.
God bless you.
Praise the Lord!
“Praise the LORD! Praise The LORD, O my soul!
I will praise the LORD, as long as I live;
I will sing praises to my God while I have my being.
Put not your trust in princes, in a son of man, in whom there is no salvation.
When his breath departs, he returns to the earth; on that day his plans perish.
Blessed is he whose help is the Lord God of Jacob,
whose hope is in the Lord his God, who made the heaven and the earth,
the sea and all that is in them, who keeps faith forever;
who executes justice for the oppressed, who gives food to the hungry.”
Psalm 146:1-7 (ESV)
