The struggle is not yours

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post below.

Do you know, that if you're struggling in any area of your life, I've come to tell you that the battle is not yours, it's the Lord's. Oh yes, He will fight your battles for you.

There are many examples in the bible when the Lord fought for His people and all they had to do was remain silent. That's another awesome thing about the Lord. He will tell us when we need to fight against the things coming against us and when He will take over. He did the latter in Exodus 14 when the Israelites were fleeing for their lives from the evil Pharaoh, who wanted to keep them enslaved. But the Lord said, not so. He sent Moses and Aaron into the king (Pharaoh) and told him he had to let God's people go. The king refused countless times and the Lord showed him who He was by sending 10 plagues of destruction against he and his kingdom. The king finally relented only to change his mind and chase the Iraelites towards the Rea Sea, which was a divine set up by the Lord. You see, when the Israelites got to the sea, God dried up the sea and they were able to walk safely to the other side. When Pharaoh's army chased after them, his army perished -- every last one of them -- when God released the waters over them. Now, I ask you this: Did God's people have to lift one finger in response to their enemies? I think you clearly know the answer to that. 

Be encouraged as you know that when the Lord is for you, who can be against you? No one, because the Lord has taken your struggle and he's got you covered from all directions.

God blesses whomever he wants to bless, whenever he wants to bless them

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post. When I was going through a dark time -- when I had nothing -- there was a certain person who helped me sometimes. She helped me whenever she basically felt like it, but she did help, and for that I'm appreciative. But, something interesting happened after I started growing out of my despair. Something interesting started happening when I no longer needed her for anything. And something interesting happened even though I remained kind and grateful towards. The interesting thing that happened was that she started hating on me. She started treating me differently. At first I was really bothered by it, because I thought she and her husband were nice people I wanted in my life. I liked that they had a sense of compassion and were interested in helping people who were down and low. That really appealed to me, because I was raised that way; my mother was raised that way; her mother was raised that way, and it goes back to as fa

We can do so much more in our lives when we have momentum and movement. It’s about standing, literally and not sitting or laying around feeling sorry for ourselves. I used to do that once upon a time and that sorrowful thinking is for the birds. We don’t have to be down. We can get up and get going even if we start small. In fact, I love starting small, because it helps set a firm foundation of habits and routines. Momentum and movement will help us get and maintain a position of strength to do what God says we can do.

Eagles fly above the storm

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with Blog Post. Are you an eagle? Do you know, eagles fly above the storm and they wait for the winds to carry them to greater heights?  That's right, as the storm is raging below, they are soaring above it all. They don't escape the storm, mind you. They simply use the storm to lift themselves to higher magnitudes. It's a though they know the storm is temporary; that they will indeed rise above it; and that they are riding the storm. I find all of that fascinating, because we can take the model of the eagle and do the same. Why can't we? We can imitate the eagles intelligence, push-through, and perseverance to weather any storm -- the storms of life that will come. If we will just know that God will never give us more than we can handle, then we will come out victorious.  As you going through anything today? Are you worried about anything in particular? Just know, you can rise above it all. Nothing is too big for G
