Maintaining Great Results

My Prayer: God I want to hear Your steps. You have walked not allowing me 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,
Thanks for the heads up on the call.
I should be around most days except Friday morning.
Got a praise! I have an appointment with a new orthopedist
the end of September!
If I happen to be out when you call, please leave a message.
Sometimes I can't get to the phone in time.

Hi Shelly!
Thanks so much for the candle goodie.
It was so good to hear from you. Glad to hear your ear has
cleared up. Swimmer's ear can hurt and be annoying too.

Please do give me a call when you can. I am here most of the
time, but it might be good to let me know when you plan on
calling like maybe the day before.

I'm up right now due to not being able to sleep and having
the knee pain. It is in my left knee now. I also had a nap today
and probably shouldn't have as it prevents me from getting to sleep easily.

Thanks again.
Hope to hear from you soon!

Love,
Sue emoticon

Hi Shelly!
I'm sorry I have not been on SP very much this summer.
I'm still trying to work through the healing process of my knees.
The pain seems to have flared up again.

I Hope you are doing better and your ear infection has cleared up.
I miss hearing from you. Stay close to God and you will hear His voice and His footsteps as you walk your life's journey.

God bless you and keep you in His care.
Love,
Sue emoticon emoticon emoticon
