There are many who fear the man with the gun or the man with the bomb. I declare to you today there is someone else you should be concerned with. Someone who is more powerful than you can image. Someone who holds space within his mind and voice. Someone who can speak into existence something out of nothing and make all the mountains of the earth bow before him. This man is so powerful that death could not hold him. Those demonic beings could not cause the temptation within his members to fall. This man is the King of kings and Lord of all Lords. He is the Almighty God.
Kiss his son, or he will be angry and your way will lead to your destruction, for his wrath can flare up in a moment. Blessed are all who take refuge in him PSALM 2:12.
This Son Jesus should be feared of all that may be feared. The devil cannot do anything without the Sons permission. All power belongs to him. Fear him. Love him. He will make your life worth it. He will add value to your existence. He will place within your hand power from on high. And you will be able to declare that you can do all things through Christ who strengthens you. Or else cowardly fall under his might, if you refuse to submit under his authority.

There are thoughts that run continually through the mind. You gather your things in the morning and you run out the door headed for work. The only thing you forgot while leaving was your presentation notes. These notes would be used to catapult you to the next level. You don’t have them and you are 35 minutes from home and the presentation is in one hour. What is the best strategy for this situation? Go and risk being tardy or become super creative within the hour before presenting?
Time and chance happens to them all. You could very well go in the meeting without your first idea and make it or your second idea could bomb it. You really do not know. If you are a Christian that has been fellowshipping with Jesus, you know that all things work together for good to them that love God. This knowledge not laced with a close relationship with Jesus provides little comfort.
Sweat develops on your forehead and you become frantic. What do you do? You calm yourself with a quiet prayer and begin asking the Lord for on the spot wisdom. You trust him and go into the meeting and present your second idea. The moment you step in front and begin to present, peace ensues.
The presentation was remarkable and you received your catapult. You thank the Lord for his faithfulness and grace.
When you have a victory from the Lord do not stop praising and thanking him. Let it be your lifestyle.

You may have heard the words of Suze Orman on her segment “can I afford it” and heard, caller after caller, get Denied! Why is that? Why would someone who clearly does not have the funds to afford a trip to Tahiti even make the call? Is it because they need to hear someone of financial authority to tell them which way to go? Is it because they made a deal with the spouse that if Suze says yes, that they would go?
It could be neither or both. It may be strength seekers, which gather strength when they hear Suze loudly say, Denied! In any case, the Lord has given us something that we may use for discernment. It is called prayer. Have you acknowledged him on your decision-making or have you decided to go it alone? Remember, your view and God’s view is different. He can see the future and you cannot. He knows the destination of a bad decision and you may only know half of the consequences of this move.
God is not interested in stifling your joy, but making sure it last. Some bad financial decisions are easier to bounce back from and others are not so easy. Take time today to think. Is this financial decision good or bad? Ask the Lord and let his peace and wisdom guide you and not your emotions.
