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.

I must confess that I have been bitten. The werewolf did not do it. The vampire is not the one guilty. It was someone else. Someone I met long ago. Someone that touched the fabric of my clothes as the oil dripped from my forehead. I recall the anointing.
I recall the power of God grabbing a hold of my mind and changing my thoughts. I was going in one direction, not the group, and found another. I changed the way I dressed. I changed the way I spoke. I changed the way I viewed life. For the first time I viewed life from an eternal perspective at not local.
No one told me to change. The Holy Spirit told me to change. I chose to be obedient. He chose to continue speaking. Disobedience closes the mouth of God and like the children of Israel you will wander aimlessly without direction and live in confusion.
Some believers, so called, said to me it does not take all that. You are being legalistic. Those same believers, so called, have cheated on their wives, lost their jobs due to drunkenness and have molested their children. I hear the words previously spoken “it does not take all that.” Really!!
Why would God in his complete awesomeness give us the Holy Spirit if he wanted us to continue living the way we lived without him? Why did he send his only Son? For me to say “it does not take all that?”
I assure you, it takes everything we have to live holy.
Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: Matthew 7:22- 24
