July 31

I’m a country girl that loves the beach, but I love the city too. That combination makes it hard for me to decide what view I want. Beach? Country? City? There are favorable characteristics about all three. A wall of windows is preferred no matter where I am. My third-grade teacher called me a daydreamer because she saw me staring out the window; she was a bit mean, and I think she was insulting me, but if it’s true, it’s true! 

Though the world may seem crazy right now, your view of God and his power can change the way you see it. Are you looking through a peephole or a wall of windows? It matters. Don’t be narrow-minded; expand your view of him, and that will help you see that all that is happening is necessary to get us to the place we want to be, so that no matter where we are, the view is phenomenal, and that is a world where Jesus reigns. He is our hope for the future, and that’s a beautiful thing to desire.

And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together. And he is the head of the body, the church. He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in everything he might be preeminent. Colossians 1:17-18

I received Jesus as my Savior as a child. When I was in my teens, I stepped outside of that faith and ventured to do things independently. I was like the prodigal son. Yesterday, I had a fleeting thought that took me back to my past, giving me a feeling of regret, but Jesus quickly reminded me of Peter. Peter denied Jesus three times and went on to become the creator of the church. He had first-hand knowledge of Jesus, walked with him physically, knew, without a doubt, he was God, and still rejected him because he feared man. Jesus forgave him. The next time you look back on your life with regret, stop! You are forgiven! We are very weak as humans, and Jesus knows that, yet still, he loves us and draws us close. So today, if you are feeling vulnerable in faith, remember Peter!

And you, who once were alienated and hostile in mind, doing evil deeds, he has now reconciled in his body of flesh by his death, in order to present you holy and blameless and above reproach before him, Colossians 1:21-22

When Satan got thrown out of heaven, he took one-third of the angels with him, leaving two-thirds to serve God and protect us. Imagine how evil your heart is to want to rid the world of most people; we are beginning to see the first steps to making that happen with the drug companies producing the new booster. For years they’ve (whoever “they” are) tried different scenarios, only this time, people are catching on to their schemes and aren’t falling for the next wave of nothing. It’s pure propaganda, created to paralyze us with fear and line their pockets with profit; the people of the United States are more intelligent than that because we’ve been allowed to think for ourselves, as has much of the world. When people realize that those who’ve died over the last two years are nearly the same as the previous years, maybe they will wake up. Submitting to this new policy will be disastrous for our freedom; DO NOT SUBMIT. We may have been the freest country in the world, but we aren’t truly free, especially now that this dictatorship has taken over our country. These useless idiots in our government believe their allegiance with Satan is beneficial for them, but they will soon find out that God controls everything, even Satan. Though these things may seem frightening, do not fear, we have a two-thirds majority to help us in this fight! Fasten your seatbelts; the turbulence may get rough!

For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him. Colossians 1:16

Circumstances are changing, like a ritual brought on by the powers and principalities of this world, as a last-ditch effort to control it. However, those powers didn’t expect the people to fight back; over the weekend, there were protests on every continent. It may have been the most significant worldwide revolt against tyranny that has ever been seen. There was nothing about it in the news on television. Wouldn’t you think that would be a front-page story? It would be if the news outlets weren’t in on the destruction. They are puppets in the hands of the elites who have decided to take control. Who is really in charge of our government? Why aren’t they fighting back on behalf of the people? Their hands are dirty, and their bank accounts are full! They began the indoctrination of our children many years ago and have poisoned their minds against freedom. Poisoned minds and poisoned bodies make it easy to control the masses. It feels like we are surrounded on every side, an impossible situation, but like Elisha said to the servant, “Do not be afraid, for those who are with us are more than those who are with them.” 

I point out these things to make you aware, not to scare you, but give you power behind your prayer. Not only are there more of us, but the host of heaven’s army also protects us. My confidence is in God and his will. He will not forsake us; I only wish he would hurry up and bring about their destruction. I know he has perfect timing, but the process is wearying. Continue to pray powerful, pointed prayers, and our Father in heaven will hear those prayers and answer them.

Then Elisha prayed and said, “O LORD, please open his eyes that he may see.” So the LORD opened the eyes of the young man, and he saw, and behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha. 2 Kings 6:17

I had heard good things about a new restaurant in our area and decided to try it out for breakfast. I ordered an omelet with mushrooms and peppers with cheese. What I was expecting and what I got were two different things. When I eat, I eat a lot because I don’t fill up on carbs. The omelet I got looked like they ran out of ingredients and gave me the leftovers at the bottom of the container. There may have been one small mushroom cut up and half a slice of red bell pepper.  Six bites later, it was gone. I ate again an hour later. On top of that, the prices didn’t reflect them skimping on product. Needless to say, I won’t be eating there again. Whoever told me it was good must eat like a bird.

There is a substandard product out there that is served daily that lacks nutritional value. Its message is repeated incessantly and is geared to control your mind, and if you’re not careful, it will! Pray that the Holy Spirit will open your eyes and give you the courage to turn it off and direct you to the truth. Fill up on the whole of God’s Word, and you will find that your anxiety and fear will subside. Trust him and do not fear what man can do; we are to please God, not man.

And so, from the day we heard, we have not ceased to pray for you, asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of his will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, so as to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him: bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God; Colossians 1:9-10

I usually get up before the sun comes up. I’m not one to turn on all the lights, I like to stay a little sleepy, but there are hazards to be aware of fumbling through the darkness. Just this morning, I took my phone and iPad off their chargers and moved them to the other counter, but because it was dark, I missed the counter entirely, and they both fell to the floor! Thankfully, neither was damaged. If you have kids, you know that it’s unsafe to wander around in the dark; stepping on one tiny Lego block could send your coffee flying! 

Even though I like the darkness in the mornings, I’m not truly in the dark used to describe evil in the Bible, but it uses it as a comparison; it makes perfect sense when you think about the many dangerous things that happen when it’s dark. Though I like sitting in physical darkness, because of Jesus, I am filled with light. When you feel you have entered an evil place, remember the light shining within you. Evil shudders when you come near.

He has delivered us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. Colossians 1:13-14

Trying to stay positive and not give up is pretty hard to do nowadays. So if you are like me, and are feeling the pressure of evil around you, then it’s time to step up your worship. We cannot traverse this world knowing what we know about Jesus without bringing out the praise. He is the sole reason we have hope in the evil world. He is the power that gives us light in the darkness; he is the light! Carry that lamp with you everywhere you go; do not put it down for even a second. 

The enemy’s lies are not a secret anymore; they are right out in the open for all to see, but many still believe him. However, the elect will not fall for such schemes! If you’re not praying, worshiping, or concentrating on scripture, you are in danger of falling for the lies. Step it up now! Worship God harder than you ever have because time is short. Keep your lamp filled with oil.

A Psalm for giving thanks. Make a joyful noise to the LORD, all the earth!

 Serve the LORD with gladness! Come into his presence with singing!

* Know that the LORD, he is God! It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.

* Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise! Give thanks to him; bless his name!

* For the LORD is good; his steadfast love endures forever, and his faithfulness to all generations. Psalms 100
