Maintaining Great Results

My Prayer: God I want to hear Your steps. You have walked not allowing myself to see the direction with my own eyes that could take me on my own path. I want to hear the direction of Your movements, that I trust only Your voice Your thoughts, and Your Word. God I ask you of all of this and within my heart as you show me the way, direct my path, and clear the obstructions which may lie ahead of my path. In Jesus name I pray amen.

God Promises Victory, but Christians Must Fight for Freedom to Live in Victory

"If God is for us then who can stand against us. " When fighting the Christian fight, God enables believers to win victory through every battle. The book of Joshua can be viewed as how to live victorious lives through the strength of God.

The Israelites, when taking possession of Canaan, struck fear into the hearts of their enemies even before the first city fell. They were familiar with what God had done for Israel and all knew that God was with them.

"and (Rahab) said to the men, 'I know that the Lord has given you this land, that the terror of you has fallen on us, and that all the inhabitants of the land are fainthearted because of you. For we have heard how the Lord dried up the water of the Red Sea for you when you came out of Egypt, and what you did to the two kings of the Amorites who were on the other side of the Jordan, Sihon and Og, whom you utterly destroyed. And as soon as we heard these things, our hearts melted; neither did there remain any courage in anyone because of you, for the Lord your God, He is God in heaven above and on the earth beneath.'" (Joshua 2:9-11)

Receiving Christ as Lord gives one the strength to strike fear into the heart of the inhabitants of the "land." God promises victory over the lusts of the flesh and the certain death that sin causes, but not without a fight.

A military campaign is won through strategy. As Joshua and his warriors tore through the land of Canaan, a pattern of military strategy emerges. The Israelites began with Jericho and moved through the highlands and mountainous regions of Canaan. Next, major Egyptian outposts and centers were targeted and destroyed. Efficiency comes through strategy.

In the lives Christians, forming a strategy to defeating enemies is crucial to daily victory. First, hit the areas of sin that are the easiest to destroy. Get off drugs, put off poisonous relationships and begin to serve in the church. Continuous wins occur when Christians begin to take out those enemy outposts. A consistent prayer life and Bible study are both habits that need to be formed and matured. An understanding of a personal role in God's covenant to believers will determine the outcome of any particular battle that comes their way.

MY PERSONAL THOUGHTS:

I know that God has not only given me victory today but He has shown me how the battle will be won. I am only grateful that He would share with me His plans. I praise God and lift Him high above me. God, may your strength ever be present as I seek you through a battle which has already been won. As I know it has been given to me I hold my head high through the devils accusations and torment. I have your power within me as I stated after I fell on my knees. The day after I fell I told myself and others I have God's power inside of me. I will use His power to do all things.

1 Corinthians 1:5
" in Him in every respect you were enriched, in full power and readiness of speech and complete knowledge and illumination."

HI Shelly,
So sorry you have not been feeling well. I hope you are doing
better now. emoticon
I have been out of town and just got back from being at our family cabin all week.
Had a nice and relaxing time. It was HOT while we were there,
but it was nice to be able to get into the lake and cool off. emoticon

My DD Sarah is now in Ireland on her mission trip. Looks like she and her team are having a good time. Please pray God will work in the hearts of the Irish people and for the safety of the team.

Thanks for praying for me. I'm finding that being in the water is helpful for my knees and legs. I will surely pray for you so you can get better as well.

Take care and God bless you,

Sue emoticon
