Psalm 21:11 assures us that our enemies plots against us won’t work: This Psalm says:
For they intended evil against thee: they imagined a mischievous device, which they are not able to perform. Proverbs 26:27 NLT explains If you set a trap for others, you will get caught in it yourself. If you roll a boulder down on others, it will crush you instead. Brothers and sisters, it may seem as though your haters got the upper hand on you for a season. However, don’t be moved by what you see at the moment, rest assured that God is nearer than you think. Romans 12:19 assures God’s faithful ones saying: Dear friends, never take revenge. Leave that to the righteous anger of God. For the Scriptures say, “I will take revenge; I will pay them back,” says the LORD…Yes indeed my friends, we can rest in the fact that according to Job 5:12, 24 God frustrates the plans of schemers so the work of their hands will not succeed! You will know that your home is safe. When you survey your possessions, nothing will be missing.
Hebrews 4:13 makes it known that: Nothing in all creation is hidden from God. Everything is naked and exposed before his eyes, and he is the one to whom we are accountable. You see while our enemies are eyeballing us down in hatred and planning their schemes, God is watching them closely. The LORD is watching everywhere, keeping his eye on both the evil and the good.(see Proverbs 15:3) Romans 8:28 says: And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose. God told Jeremiah in Jeremiah 29:11: For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.
Don’t let your hearts be weak or turned aside. Let the Words David said in Psalm 61;2-3 be in your heart and mind. David said I cry too you for help when my heart is overwhelmed. He ask the Lord to Lead him to the towering rock of safety . Brothers and sisters, you can always depend on the Rock of your Salvation, Jesus Christ!
As Christians, we must go forth doing the right thing, and pleasing or Savior and Lord.
A Christian’s behavior and actions shows others whether or not they are God’s workmanship and if they are walking together with the Lord in one accord.
As a true believer, Christians must go forth in faith, speaking those things that are not as though they are.
Overall, true believers go forth acting like Jesus Christ, Whom some refer to as the Super Star!
As a soldier of the Lord we must go forth on the battle field prepared to do battle, we must do what we’re commissioned to do. Jeremiah 1:8 says, Do not be afraid of their faces, For I am with you to deliver you,”
As mighty warriors, we must go forth in sheer bravery, unafraid of the fiery darts of the wicked one.
Mighty warriors of the Lord are overwhelmed, thankful and zealous because of what the Lord has done.
The Book of Judges chapter 6 tells of a story of Gideon, a judge chosen to rescue Israel from their enemy. I call Gideon Captain Scary because he really was quite nervous and fearful. Although Gideon was fearful, he, ultimately exhibited great courage and faith and obeyed God even in the face of great opposition.
You know brothers and sisters, God has a way of choosing the least likely person to carry out his plans and purposes. God will choose people who appear to be unqualified for His assigned task. Indeed, God may instruct any of his chosen one’s to do something that seems scary or nerve wrecking. Nevertheless, it is wise that Christians pray for discernment and understanding in moving in the direction God is pointing. Having said all these things, the point I’m trying to bring home is we must learn to answer God’s higher calling and not be afraid of people. God told Jeremiah in Jeremiah 1:8, “Be not afraid of their faces: for I am with thee to deliver thee, saith the LORD.” It is highly possible that we Christians are partially the blame for much of the chaos and confusion going on in this world. Why we may be partially the blame? Because many of us are too afraid to step out on faith and obey God’s calling on our lives. Although Gideon was afraid…he stood firm and obeyed…that’s more than many of us can say for ourselves…right? Well, it’s not too late. Let us search ourselves and strive to come into alignment with God’s plans and purposes for us in this world.
Humans are constantly trying to steal God’s glory. How is this possible? It’s not, but that doesn’t stop the hell bound soldiers of Satan. Who will stand up and proclaim that all Glory belongs to God? To God be the Glory!!!!!
Relentless, fierce, like a mad dog, foaming at the mouth.
Hurry, run, before you get twisted and turned about.
The devil sees your good deeds and the way you have changed.
He’s not liking how you made for yourself a new life and things are re-arranged.
Stay close to the Lord now, and don’t slip out of the way
Stay in prayer, praise and mediate on his word, each and every day!
Often times when we encounter uncomfortable issues in life and we have to tell it like it is, it is not that easy. However, it is easier to tell it like we want it. When we do this we cover up things we do not want revealed, we try to hide the truth. It is truly amazing how quickly we forget that God knows the truth and nothing but the truth and He’s watching us tell that big fat lie. No, not a half lie or half-truth, but just a lie …period. We so easily allow the devil to drive our car…drive us to do irrational things. Lying is not always intentional, it is human nature because humanity inherited the lying spirit of the devil that came through Adam and Eve. Lying is just one of the parts of the flesh that can only be crucified through accepting our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ who gives us His Holy Spirit to guide us into all truth with boldness and discretion. The Holy Spirit will not allow the devil to drive your car. He won’t let the devil take the wheel. Remember, some things are better left unsaid. It is imperative that we guard our tongue and maybe less lies will come out. Jesus reminds us in Matthew 12: 36 saying: And I tell you this, you must give an account on judgment day for every idle word you speak.
Ephesians 4:25 reminds us to stop telling lies. Father God, According to Proverbs 6:16-19, lying is one of the seven things that the Lord hates. In the name of Jesus intervene in the lives of those who consistently and purposely lie. The spirit of lying is detrimental to the spiritual well-being for you said that all liars will have their part in the lake of fire. Let us remember that Satan is the father of lies. Don’t let him drive your car! Don’t let him take control! Lord God we thank you for helping all of us in the issues, habits, shortcomings and for bringing us to our true identity in Jesus Christ!
It seems to me that a man as intelligent as Tyler Perry knows that the Government know everything about everybody or can discover it if they so desire. It is really hard for me to believe that Tyler Perry is in this mess (The military lawsuit) all alone. I mean… what made Tyler Perry try to get over on the government? Just a thought, but, I imagine if enough movie stars got burned for trying to get over on the government, the United States could get out of the debt we are in. Now that’s just a thought that ran through my brains. However keep in mind, I am not suggesting anything but only thinking out loud. Lord knows I cannot go to jail, I have to take care of my mother. What’s really going on? I don’t have a clue.
One thing I do know is that no matter what, Tyler Perry is the man who gave the world a taste of what it is like to be a Christians even though we have issues just like everyone else. He bought hope not hell and damnation into homes. Tyler Perry bought love, joy and much laughter into the lives of many people. But guess what, the devil hates that and I am sure He is trying to do something about Tyler Perry as to try to shut him down. I pray for Tyler Perry to take all this mess and chalk it up as a trick of the enemy and keep pressing in to enemy lines. It’s good that Mr. Perry is not feeding into this trickery. I also Pray that He will seek God in this matter and ask God to show Him how to gain the victory in every situation and circumstance.
It is only God who knows hearts and minds. We can only guess and speculate and even when we see things, this does not mean we saw the truth as to what is really going on. So, having said that, let us not start bad mouthing Mr. Perry…God is his judge, maker and whatever happened, God will deal with it righteously. Until then, let us all keep in mind that the Book of Proverbs 6:16-19 (New Living Translation) tells us: There are six things the Lord hates— no, seven things he detests: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that kill the innocent, a heart that plots evil, feet that race to do wrong, a false witness who pours out lies, a person who sows discord in a family. Furthermore, I leave you with Galatians 6:10-12 (NLT): A final word: Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil. For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places. Jesus said, he who is without sin, cast the first stone. ( paraphrased, John 8:7)
