wrecking the devil’s plans

God has a wonderful and exciting life planned for all who will leave the choice up to Him. He wants for you to be full of joy, blessed with all blessing, to be increased in all things good, to have peace beyond measure and to enjoy life to the fullest. These are only a sampling of all that God has and wants for His children. He knows what you have need of and He more

in the enemy’s camp

I have heard it taught that we as Christians are caught right in the middle of a big battle that is going on between God and Satan. It has been said that each pulls at us to try to win us over to their side. In a sense that is true of the general human race, but as for Christians it is really not the case.You see as a Christian, I am not caught more

no fear

One of the most effective tools that the devil has against you is fear. He uses it very successfully and very often. The main reason for his use of this against you is, first of all, it is actually the only real weapon that he has. Secondly, if he can get you, or anyone for that matter, to be fearful, he can dominate you and steal your joy, your goods, your testimony, even your more

be sober and vigilant

This scripture is a very important admonition to us as Christians, yet it is so ignored and neglected by the majority of believers. I am convinced that most believers fall into two basic categories regarding the existence and works of the devil.The first group does not really believe in a personal devil. I had a professor in a Christian college tell me when I was in school that there really isn’t a personal devil, more

the fear factor

The Bible tells us in both the Old and New Testaments in several places that we, as Christians, are to live by faith.(Hab. 2:4, Rom. 1:17, Gal. 3:11, Heb. 10:38) It goes on to tell us that anything which is not of faith is sin. Most Christians don’t realize that to not live by faith is sin. You see, God is very emphatic about this, our lives are to be characterized by faith. (Trusting more

fight or flight

Sometimes the most important thing that we can learn is when to fight and when to run. Now I know that as mature, civilized people, we are not supposed to be fighting with one another, we are supposed to be striving to live in peace with all people. I am sure that you have found out that no matter how hard you try, sometimes it is difficult to live at peace with certain people more

a three sided victory

It is always good when going into a contest or a battle to know ahead of time that you are going to win. It really boosts your confidence during the fight to know that it is going to come out right, and that is you win.Today’s verse tells us how to have a 3 way victory over our enemy. Now it is clear from the text of this verse just exactly who our enemy more

don’t lose it

The idea that the Christian life is smooth sailing in calm waters is far from the truth and anyone who tells you differently is simply mistaken or is lying. No where in the Bible is it said that the Christian life is an easy life. We do people a real injustice when we tell them that if they will just get saved them that they will never have any more problems.The fact is that more

no condemnation

For many Christians, this verse has no real meaning, yet it should be like a lifeline that is thrown out to them in a sea of guilt. Are you one of the ones who always feels that God is not going to answer your prayers or will not bless you or will pass you over for healing because you are not worthy?This is the case with so many people. The devil knows that he can’ more

faith for all seasons

Jesus was in preparation for entering the fullness of His public ministry. Up until this time, there is very little recorded about His life. He has just been baptized and the Spirit has descended upon Him and even from heaven came the voice of God saying, “This is my beloved Son in whom I am well pleased.” Well, you would think that now Jesus was ready to go out and win the world. He more
