Pray for all people…and for all of those in authority! (1 Timothy 2:1). May God bless you, my friends, and may God bless America!! 🥰
It makes all the difference in the world when we read Scripture EXPECTING that the LORD will teach us and impact us through the inspired words that we read! (2 Timothy 3:16)
Then our reading changes from being a “discipline” to becoming a “treasure hunt!” And that is exciting!
Thank You, LORD, for Your Word! Your Truths are indeed a “treasure” that we want to store up within our minds, souls, and spirits!
We are indeed “rich” when we store up Your Treasure, Your Word, within our hearts…and then ACT on Your Truth!
May we spread Your Treasure upon this earth. May we not just be HEARERS of Your Word…but may we be DOERS!! (James 1:22). AMEN!!
For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh, for the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh, but divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses. We are destroying speculations and every lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ…(2 Corinthians 10:3-5)
Ahhhh, Brothers and Sisters! Our minds are a battlefield!! This Scripture is so powerful! It reminds us that our weapons are divine weapons…spiritual weapons…and not weapons of our flesh.
It reminds us that we are to “destroy” those thoughts that are raised up against the knowledge of God. Our knowledge of God is what we have learned through the Holy Scriptures…the revelation knowledge of His Truth that has been revealed to us by His Holy Spirit.
ANY thoughts that go against His promises…His will for us…or His Truth, should be taken captive and destroyed! Our thoughts are like fortresses. They can either imprison us in false thinking and not allow us to be free in Christ Jesus…
or they can be fortresses that protect us from the enemy because we have built a “wall of truth” of God’s Word around our minds, souls, and spirits.
Are there any “fortresses” of wrong thinking that are imprisoning you today? Please know that FREEDOM is here for you NOW!! Take God’s Truth and use it confidently and boldly to bring down all those thoughts that go against who God is and who you are in Christ Jesus!! Look in His Word for those “weapons” –words of truth and power – that WILL accomplish for you what you have been unable to do on your own.
I speak and decree FREEDOM for you today!! In the Mighty Name of Jesus, AMEN!! ~Tina K. Roach
“Memorial Day commemorates the men and women who died while in the military service of their country, particularly those who died in battle or as a result of wounds sustained in battle. In other words, the purpose of Memorial Day is to memorialize the veterans who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country. We spend time remembering those who lost their lives and could not come home, reflecting on their service and why we have the luxury and freedom that we enjoy today. We might consider how we can support and safeguard their grieving families and loved ones who are left behind.” (almanac.com)
I have never personally known someone who died while fighting in wartime or serving overseas. So, I know that I can never truly know the pain and suffering of those that have lost loved ones who “made the ultimate sacrifice.”
But, I do want to take the time to REMEMBER and HONOR all of our fallen heroes. Your sacrifice will forever be woven into the history, the now, and the future of our country.
I see your sacrifice as golden threads woven into the tapestry of the United States. Those threads allow our country to shine, allow us to stand proudly, and allow us to walk into the future carrying the flag of freedom. May we never take it for granted! May we never forget! ~Tina Roach
“Those who have long enjoyed such privileges as we enjoy forget in time that men have died to win them.” ~Franklin D.Roosevelt
As we celebrate our independence and freedom as a country on this day, may we also celebrate our freedom in Jesus Christ!!
So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed. John 8:36
I find that I go through periods of focusing on a certain praise/worship song. Do you do that?
For the past couple of weeks, my attention has been on the song “Wavewalker” by Citizen Way. The first time I heard it, my joy soared and I couldn’t help but dance!!
“When I keep my eyes upon You, Jesus-I’m a wavewalker!!”🌊🌊
Walk in the authority and power that Jesus is calling you to, mighty men & women of God!!💥💥💥
Are you like me and sometimes have a hard time forgiving yourself for mistakes you have made? It may be something that was said that we wish was unsaid; or not saying what should have been said; or doing something that caused pain; or not doing what we should have… the sins of commission and omission.
I remember a time when I had said something I wish I hadn’t. I went to the Lord in a spirit of repentance asking for His forgiveness. But, a week later, I still felt “condemnation” and went to Him asking for His forgiveness again…and again…and again. I was walking under a heavy cloud of condemnation that I couldn’t seem to shake.
After about a month of this torment, the Lord spoke:
“I forgave you the first time you asked…so why won’t you forgive yourself?”
Dearest one, are you walking under a cloud of condemnation – condemnation you have put upon yourself or condemnation that the enemy is tying to destroy you with? If you have gone to the Lord asking for His forgiveness, be assured that you have it!!
…as far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us. (Psalm 103:12)
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. (1 John 1:9)
Beloved! In the mighty Name of Jesus, YOU ARE FORGIVEN!
Now, forgive yourself and go forward in the love and strength of the Lord!
