1 Peter 1:13
Focus on Jesus!
Have you ever found yourself thinking about things that you shouldn’t be thinking about? It doesn’t matter if it is revenge against an enemy or a fantasy about a supermodel or rock star; we are taught against thinking about imaginations. Friends this is a trap that the devil uses, just one of many to get you to fall from grace and into sin. That is why Peter warns us to be sober, or in other words don’t get caught up in the moment of a fantasy thought.
Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.
1 Peter 5:8
If left unchecked the devil will devour you, he will do all that he can to get you to sin; our adversary is ruthless, he will attack over and over. The devil has had thousands of years to perfect his schemes, we must be careful not to fall into them. If we are caught up in the moment our Lord will provide us a means of escape. Our Lord Himself was tempted by the devil, we will not be going through anything that He hasn’t been through. A good rule to live by for guarding your hearts and your minds is thoughts will eventually lead to action and action left unchecked will lead to sin.
You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.
1 John 4:4
We have already won the battle through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. Jesus defeated the devil and his works when He arose from the tomb and ascended to heaven. I offer the following advice which has worked for me over and over and it happens to be one of my favorite verses:
Therefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and rest your hope fully upon the grace that is to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ;
1 Peter 1:13
Jesus Christ is my rock and refuge is He yours?
Now an independent ministry
We need to keep Israel in prayer, now more than ever!
God blesses those that bless Israel!
And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.
GOD BLESS AMERICA!
Let us turn from sin and towards GOD!
I am asking all of my Brothers and Sisters in Christ, I am calling all prayer warriors; please pray for our Brother Loyd Teakell and his ministry for God, and if there is any way you can support or help support his ministry please do so, every dollar counts!
