Ride on King Jesus!! NO MAN CANNOT HINDER ME!

Praise the Lord from whom ALL blessings flow! I just wanted to share a song with you that I have not heard in a mighty long time! It came to my heart out of nowhere but praise be to God….. it got me on my feet as I exclaimed that NO MAN cannot hinder me. NO MAN cannot hinder you! The Bible tells us in Romans 8:31 “What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?”

God’s Everlasting Love

31 What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? 32 He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things? 33 Who shall bring a charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. 34 Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us. 35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? 36 As it is written:

“For Your sake we are killed all day long;
We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.”[c]

37 Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. 38 For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, 39 nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

That passage of scripture is deep on my heart. Dear Reader, rise up this day and claim victory in your circumstances no matter what the natural eye sees and the ear hears. God loves us! God has the final say over your life. He is your Judge, He is your Creator. You are who He says you are! The enemy comes to attack in subtle ways like a little lamb and in voracious ones like a lion. There is no light in him. He is the prince of darkness from the pit of hell. Be it through people or circumstances, your boat may get rocked or it may even turn over. Stand your ground, put on the WHOLE Armor of God and go out with authority in the victorious name of Jesus Christ!! Do you hear me?!! God woke you up to be encouraged in Him, not to be defeated!

The Whole Armor of God

10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. 11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age,[c] against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. 13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

14 Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; 18 praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints— (Ephesians 6: 10-18)

I’m gonna praise the Lord with you! I don’t know what you are going through but I know who does better than anyone else. JESUS!!!!!!

RIDE ON KING JESUS!! HALLELUJAH! GLORY BE TO GOD!!

Be encouraged this day. Take your heart to the throne and place your burdens at His feet. The Lord will raise you up and strengthen you.

“And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.” (Romans 8:28)

Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. Resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same kinds of suffering are being experienced by your brotherhood throughout the world. (1 Peter 5:8, 9 ESV)

Dear brothers and sisters in the Lord,

My prayer for you today is to be alert, waking up each day you are given with a mindset that evil is always lurking; always searching for a crack to seep into to mess up your day. It all starts with a thought. Thoughts then turn to actions if we allow them to.

Did you wake up this morning with a good or bad attitude? What type of fruit has it produced thus far?

The Lord did not awaken us to start off with negative thinking. Yesterday may have not been a good one but leave yesterday where it belongs. TODAY is a brand new day. It’s never too late to redirect your thoughts, to turn them around and make the best of what you’ve been given. Life itself is a blessing. Someone did not make it through the night. Someone took their last breath a second ago.

We are called to make a difference.

Today is not ALL ABOUT YOU day. Think of others and the sufferings and battles they are facing. If they do not know Christ and haven’t started to develop a relationship with Him, then they definitely are prey waiting to be devoured. We can be too if we grow weary, give up and give in.

Thee ole snowball effect will either spring for life or death. Those around you will will either benefit or take a loss based off of how you react. Our family, friends, neighbors and strangers need to reap God’s blessings. Enough damage is done by the adversary by himself.

For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; (2 Corinthians 10:3-5 KJV)

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. (Ephesians 6:12 KJV)

It’s time to put on your spiritual clothing ( Armor of God Ephesians 6:11-17) and take your post. Use spiritual discernment when you are on watch. God oversees everything. Nothing goes unnoticed 24/7 by him.

Stay prayed up and be vigilant. Be strengthened in the Lord. Fear not what Satan can do to you. God has you covered on all sides. You have the power and authority in Christ Jesus to cast down those things that are not pure.

And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:7 KJV)
