Truth is when the enemy can’t get you it’ll come after everything you love and hold dear. Don’t lose heart and don’t take it personal. #LiveFaithfully your best life and teach those you love to do the same. Christ teaches us that even greater things we will do because Christ has ascended to God.
#TRUST that God will provide exactly what you need at exactly the right time (which NEVER seems to be our time). Know that God not just created us but knows us and that we can honestly and fully give God everything. In the hardest and most difficult places God reminds of of God’s Promise concerning us.
#REJOICE knowing that God created you in God’s image and the Power that raised Christ from the dead is the very power in you.
Be #UNCOMPROMISED in your faith and walk with God. Don’t give into “well meaning” folk who will sit and listen to your problems issues and concerns say that you’re in their benign prayers. Look to God for wisdom and discernment. Get up shake the dust off and move in the direction of God’s Promise.
#EXALT God Praise God. Sing songs of encouragement. Demonstrate God’s unconditional love in every relationship you have. Teach your children and their children what it means to faithfully live.
Living faithfully is #resistance. Living our best life with assurance that we are not alone is #protest. It enables us to work in love of neighbor/other #lobbying that they may also enjoy liberty, freedom and peace.
Jeremiah 29.4-8a says
This is what the Lord Almighty, the God of Israel, says to all those I carried into exile from Jerusalem to Babylon: 5 “Build houses and settle down; plant gardens and eat what they produce. 6 Marry and have sons and daughters; find wives for your sons and give your daughters in marriage, so that they too may have sons and daughters. Increase in number there; do not decrease. 7 Also, seek the peace and prosperity of the city to which I have carried you into exile. Pray to the Lord for it, because if it prospers, you too will prosper.” 8 Yes, this is what the Lord Almighty, the God of Israel, says: “Do not let the prophets and diviners among you deceive you. Do not listen to the dreams you encourage them to have. 9 They are prophesying lies to you in my name. I have not sent them,” declares the Lord.
God calls us to live in the midst of and despite what the enemy tries to do. And the living is not just for us and those we love and hold dear but for ALL. God’s desire is not that we simply survive the attacks of the enemy but that we thrive trusting that the plans of God for our lives are far more powerful than anything else.
