It’s Time To Suit Up.

There is a time to PRAY,
And there is a time to SAY;

But there is a time to COMMAND things,

To get out of the way!

There is a time of PEACE,

And there is a time of WAR;

So you better use your spiritual WEAPONS, 

For there is a THIEF at the door.

Whether you believe it or not, there is a real thief that is daily knocking at our door. His name is the devil. He wants to get into the house. He has a plot. It is to kill, steal and destroy. And as we can clearly see he is not even afraid to go into a house of worship. But I am comforted by the words that Jesus spoke to His disciples, “let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” (John 14:27) I am so thankful that the body of Christ is not a building. For the true and living God does not live in a physical building , but in the heart of His people. So even if you destroy the church building or the physical body of a believer, their spirit will live on forever.

It is time to discern the time and season in which we are living. We need more than just eloquent prayers and words of condolences. We need a divine strategy for this critical hour! We must realize that we are not fighting mere mortals! We are fighting the invisible forces of darkness. And no natural weapons can defeat these forces. But God has given every believer an armor to fight and overcome. It is time for us to take a refresher course on the Spiritual Armor of God. It is time to Suit Up! The bible says,  “So take everything the Master has set out for you, well-made weapons of the best materials. And put them to use so you will be able to stand up to everything the Devil throws your way. This is no afternoon athletic contest that we’ll walk away from and forget about in a couple of hours. This is for keeps, a life-or-death fight to the finish against the Devil and all his angels.” Ephesians 6:10-12  “Be prepared. You’re up against far more than you can handle on your own. Take all the help you can get, every weapon God has issued, so that when it’s all over but the shouting you’ll still be on your feet. Truth, righteousness, peace, faith, and salvation are more than words. Learn how to apply them. You’ll need them throughout your life. God’s Word is an indispensable weapon. In the same way, prayer is essential in this ongoing warfare. Pray hard and long. Pray for your brothers and sisters. Keep your eyes open. Keep each other’s spirits up so that no one falls behind or drops out.” Ephesians 6:13-18 MSG

       👁When I Gazed👁

When I gazed into the eyes of my Majesty,

I say thank You Jesus for the things,

That You have done for me!

I say thank You for dying upon the Cross,

To save such a soul; 

That was broken and lost.

I say thank You for my daily provision,

And Your host of angelic protection.

I say thank You for the knowledge,

And wisdom that You give;

And for the Mercy and Grace,

That You grant me to live!

NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE.

Day #89: Of my 100 Day’s Challenge of Counting It All Joy. Today, I am Counting It All Joy that nothing is impossible with God!

In conversation with someone, I verbalized my desire to achieve a certain GOAL.I was not talking about climbing Mount Everest or running a marathon. I was simply desiring to improve the quality of my life in a certain area. But I was told emphatically, “It can’t be done!” But I say NOTHING is impossible with God. For His strength will always enable me to overcome my weaknesses. This persons negative remark  actually caught me by surprise. But it has also served as a sober reminder that you have to guard your heart from the DREAM KILLERS and NAYSAYERS! They are TOXIC and they are EVERYWHERE!

 ~Nothing Is Impossible~

When somebody tells me,
“It can’t be done!”

I tell them that nothing is impossible under the sun.

For God has already won my victory,

And His Goodness and Mercy;

I know I will see!
When somebody tells me,

“It can’t be done!”

They have given me an incentive,

For the next mile;

That I am getting ready to run.

THANK YOU.

Day #88: Of my 100Day’s Challenge of Counting It All Joy.

Today, I am revisiting my 100 Day’s challenge of Counting It All Joy. For even in the wilderness and the darkest valley, God has heard and answered my deepest cry. He is so worthy to be praised! He has given me gifts that I haven’t earned. And He has lavished me with things that I don’t deserve!


🙏🏽THANK YOU🙏🏽

Lord, I thank You,
For the fresh air;

That I am breathing today.

I so thank You,

For Your promise;

That You will make a way.
Lord, I thank You,

For your Holy presence;

That is always near.

Lord, I so thank You,

For giving me the fruits;

Of answered prayers.

STAND FIRM.

Whether we believe it or not, there is an invisible war that humanity is fighting. We have a real enemy. He is daily knocking at our door. He wants to get in and take control. His name is the devil. His plot is to kill, steal and destroy. (John 10:10). But hallelujah, there is a lamb in the House! His blood is on the doorpost. His name is Jesus. He has a plan! “It is for good, not for evil, to give us a hope and a future.” (Jeremiah 29:11)

Our role is to:

1. Simply accept God’s good plan of Salvation John 3:16 

2. Walk in the good works that He has prepared for us before the foundation of the world. Eph 2:10

3. Continue to pray and give thanks

And even if the ground that we are standing on feels like it is shifting, We can still STAND FIRM! For as a believer, we will never lose our footing, and God will never lose His head.

Love Is The Link.

Today Count It All Joy is keeping Hope alive by praying for peace and love to prevail in our nation and around the world.                

                          
                          ~The Link~

We don’t need to see any more mass destruction,

Lord, let us see Your power and Your resurrection!

We don’t need to see anymore fighting and debates,

Lord, help us to bury the violence and the hate.

We don’t need to see anymore division and mistrust,

Lord, help us to hold  fast to the link that unites us.

#LoveIsTheLink

A Time.

We do not have to look too far to see and hear that this world is in great turmoil. 

The daily conversations and breaking headline news is enough to leave us feeling emotionally drained, helpless and hopeless. But our true strength, provision and protection does not come from man. It comes from the One who created the universe, put the stars in place and gave us life! The word of The Almighty declares that, “No king is saved by the multitude of an army; A mighty man is not delivered by great strength. A horse is a vain hope for safety; Neither shall it deliver any by its great strength. Behold, the eye of the LORD is on those who fear Him, On those who hope in His mercy, To deliver their soul from death, And to keep them alive in famine.” Psalms 33:16-19 NKJV. 

This is a time for reflection! It is a time to repent! It is a time to look into the Eyes of Perfect Love and ask for mercy! http://www.xulonpress.com/bookstore/bookdetail.php?PB_ISBN=9781498488341&HC_ISBN=

It is a time to take inventory of our lives and acknowledge that it is not our military strength, money, education, or any social status that is going to save us. #Jesus saves! John 3:16
        

                ~A TIME~

It’s a time to review the beatitudes,
It’s a time to form some new attitudes.

It’s a time to change from what’s bad to good,

It’s a time to do what you know you should.

It’s a time to lay aside the heavy weights,

It’s a time to chose Christ,

And the narrow gate.

Midnight Prayer.

Apart from momentary help, Prayer is the most humble thing that we can offer in the path of the storm!  “Then they cry out to the LORD in their trouble, And He brings them out of their distresses. He calms the storm, So that its waves are still.” Psalms 107:28-29 NKJV

           ~In The Path~

Lord, for those who have been caught,
In the path of the storm;

I ask for Your angelic assistance,

To bring peace and calm.

Lord, for those who are homeless,
And left without hope;

I pray that You would give courage,

And help them to cope.

Lord, for those who feel helpless,
With no place to turn;

I pray that they find grace and mercy,

At the seat of Your Throne!

Joyce A. Boahene© 9/8/17
