Thanksgiving: I Thank the Lord for inner Beauty, for we forsake the things of the Natural and seek the Love and Live of the Super Natural! I Thank the Lord for Prayer, for all things are blessed by those who seek to do the Will of the Lord! I Thank the Lord for a submissive Spirit, for in our weakness, the Lord is our Strength!
It is Written, “Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold jewelry or fine clothes. Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight. For this is the way the holy women of the past who put their hope in God used to adorn themselves. They submitted themselves to their own husbands, like Sarah, who obeyed Abraham and called him her lord. You are her daughters if you do what is right and do not give way to fear. Husbands, in the same way be considerate as you live with your wives, and treat them with respect as the weaker partner and as heirs with you of the gracious gift of life, so that nothing will hinder your prayers. Finally, all of you, be like-minded, be sympathetic, love one another, be compassionate and humble. Do not repay evil with evil or insult with insult. On the contrary, repay evil with blessing, because to this you were called so that you may inherit a blessing.” 1 Peter 3:1-9
Prayer: I Pray that all Men understand their Strength is found in their submission to the Will of the Lord!
“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.” (Ephesians 6:12)
For our struggle is not against flesh and blood! There is a division between us that most people do not see and understand. For we create and finance wars and spending billion upon billions of dollar to fight our enemy of flesh. Many men and women are killed in this so called fight against evil and even more, people unite against other people to combat one another in the name of righteousness. But how successful is this crusade against the flesh? I liken this to going to a puppet show and slaying the puppets for their ill will and leaving the puppeteer alive. There are two realities set before us; one is the physical world, and the other is the spiritual world. I know for most of you, this is not a new concept, but it is one we must continue to build understanding about to put in full perspective of what is really going on.
The dark forces that work against us are not the planes that crash into buildings or the leaders and dictators who abuse. It is the spiritual forces behind these people and events that we must fight against. But how do we fight what we cannot see? It is the same principle given to us by faith which is to Believe in things unseen but known. Our great adversary and great assets are one in the same. Belief in the unseen is the only way we as Gods’ people will survive. Understand, these things will manifest in two ways, one from the rulers on high and the second by the Faith in God. For too long, the men and women of God have seen the fruit of the evil rulers and forces; But God is calling for a time like this for our Fruits of Faith to Manifest. The Spiritual legacy passed down through Jesus to us is greater than what we see in the world!
