Christians are on two polar extremes concerning praying against the devil, his agents and works. On one extreme, some Christians begin and end their prayers, with almost all their prayer points against the devil and his works.

The good news I'm going to share with you here is so powerful that you'll begin to attract a God fearing partner in a short period of time.
The Mr. Jones’s of today will continue to look to the world’s standards by purchasing and obtaining the “in things” in hopes of filling their need for affirmation. In contrast, the rich man, aware he needed to be fulfilled with something more, approached Jesus asking for eternal life.
Lord, reveal my heart. Am I seeking to serve or to exert power? Amen. Especially as we endeavor to minister in spaces where exertions of power are manifest all the time, we're reminded not to respond like-for-like. Conflict never abates when retaliation occurs.
Are you afraid of death? Many people for fear of death have taken wrong steps and decisions, yet death has no power over a Christian believer, except he or she allows it.
In our spiritual house, spiritual termites could be compared to those things that erode our relationship with the Lord. They won’t cause you to lose your salvation because only a conscious decision to turn away from Christ can do that - but they can lead to such an attitude.
Have you ever waited on someone else to grant you permission or approval? Are you tired of the wait? Although you carry on with your daily life does it feel like you are living in limbo.

A few years ago I went and got my mass shooter certification. While I seldom do crisis work anymore, I thought the skill-set would be beneficial even if only on a personal level. But as the number of these shootings continue to increase, I have found myself taking more and more training's. I'm not sure how or why it has gotten so bad, but it is a subject that we can no longer afford to turn a blind eye to.
We live in historic times in America. The Left is in a full-scale war against a sitting President. Socialism is in vogue, thanks to Bernie Sanders. College campuses are social re-education camps, and young American's everywhere are sure life isn't fair. Suddenly being offended, the current fad, is as popular as the Pet Rock used to be. Our descent to Third World status is reaching warp speed.

You should never allow evil spirits to reside in your life. If you lack adequate time to do a self-deliverance in the mornings, after your quiet time, then, when you're having your bath, you could do it.
Seniors know staying physically and mentally active translates to good quality of life. Recent research shows that music should be a part of your daily routine to boost your cognitive abilities. Even seniors who are not musicians benefit from listening to music.
Many of us want to be nice people. Nice people are polite and helpful. Nice people try to be considerate of the feelings of others. Nice people don't want to offend or upset anyone and are uncomfortable "causing a scene."
Imagine waking up knowing that everything you will ever need will be there whenever you want it. The fear of lack simply did not exist. The Garden of Eden had to be absolutely beautiful and breathe taking. The Holy Scriptures reveals that “God planted a Garden eastward of Eden.”
Outstanding pastors have learned that the best way to lead is by people’s side, not ahead of them. This often requires patience. “If we hope for what we do not see, we wait for it with patience.” (Romans 8:25).
