As children of God, in order for our words, or prayers to be effective, we are asked to first submit. Once we submit to the power and authority of the indwelt Holy Spirit, then we can effectively pray and resist the devil who seeks to destroy us with sickness etc. “Submit to God. But resist the devil and he will flee from you.” James 4:7 We have a choice, a decision to make. Submit and be infused with power on high, or battle on our own? The thief came to steal and destroy, Jesus came to give us eternal life. “Whoever wants to be the world’s friend becomes God’s enemy. ” James 4:4
Thank You Jesus for paying the price of my redemption. Galatians 3:13 “Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us… He redeemed us… so that by faith we might receive the promise of the Spirit.” 🙏 Deut 28 “All these blessings will come on you and accompany you if you obey the Lord your God.”
“You will be blessed in the city and blessed in the country. You will be blessed when you come in and blessed when you go out. The Lord will make you the head, not the tail. If you pay attention to the commands of the Lord your God that I give you this day and carefully follow them, you will always be at the top, never at the bottom.”
Jesus told Peter “Don’t you realize that I could ask My Father for thousands of angels to protect us, and He would send them instantly?’ — Matt 26:52 ❤️ We are children of God, no word or weapon formed against us will prevail if we remain submitted. If we trust in Jesus, Yeshua, our Saviour, Redeemer, Protector, Provider, and Healer, we shall be blessed as our soul enlarges to receive all that God has for us. BELIEVE and RECEIVE power from on High to resist the devil.
Joshua 1:7 “Be strong and very courageous. Be careful to obey all the law my servant Moses gave you; do not turn from it to the right or to the left, that you may be successful wherever you go.” The new creation thirsts and hungers for the living Word of God. The new creation keeps the Word of God on their lips, they hear what the Spirit of God is saying, and they treasure God’s Word in their hearts. What flows out of their mouth is from the storage room of God’s Word in their hearts. The new creation trusts that their words and actions please God as they live in obedience. The new creation is quick to listen and slow to speak because they choose their words carefully. AMEN ❤️ AMEN
The Spirit urges us to ‘walk this way’ and obey the Word of God. Proverbs 3:5-8 “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to Him, and He will make your paths straight. Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord and shun evil. This will bring health to your body and nourishment to your bones.” Our dry, brittle bones are nourished and restored by every living Word of God. Our Father knows best. AMEN ❤️ Hallelujah

It truly is a different experience living life for Christ and not yourself. Humbling yet an honor.

Yes, we must get used to different. AMEN ❤️ 2 Corinthians 5:17 “If anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! All this is from God, who reconciled us to Himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation.” Our Father reconciled the world to Himself in Christ, not counting people’s sins against them. AMEN ❤️
