-But when the Comforter (Counselor, Helper, Advocate, Intercessor, Strengthener, Standby) comes, Whom I will send to you from the Father, the Spirit of Truth Who comes (proceeds) from the Father, He [Himself] will testify regarding Me-

John 15:26

I was scrolling through some of the articles that I have written and for whatever reason, I never got around to posting….And I ran into this one that I had written in January of 2017, which is just perfect for those of you who have made New Year’s Resolutions and are currently in a Loosing Battle!

So….

TAG-IN The Holy Spirit!!

He Wants to help you win this Fight!!

I Hope this Helps!!…….

Hey Neighbor!!

I’m doing my best to start this year off right, but it has not been any fun. I was ill for several months in the latter part of 2016 and so my Acupuncturists suspected that I may have a wheat/gluten sensitivity and recommended that I modify my diet, by eliminating those food products from my diet for about 30 days and see if I start to feel better.
We’ll, as of Day 4, I am already feeling much better…that is after I eliminated coffee from my diet, once again. I bought my husband the cool new Ninja coffee maker for Christmas and I thought I was a regular brewista for a few days there after Christmas. I was making Dewitt a caffeinated cup and a decaf for myself, but I just wasn’t able to digest it very well, so I made the difficult decision of adding my tasty morning coffee treat to the elimination list…along with sugar!!😩

Well, Although my ears still feel full and are still bugging me in the evening, making it difficult to sleep, I haven’t experienced any dizziness or lightheadedness and my blood pressure has been great…120/80 and lower!! YAY!! Praise God for His Holy Spirit, as He is my most necessary helper, empowering me to get through these difficult days…teaching me what foods are tolerable for me and giving me the willpower to resist those that aren’t.

What are You planning to eliminate from your diet, or lifestyle for a healthier, happier life??

Is it a trigger food…like my delicious coffee or a longstanding habit like smoking, or maybe your goal is to just drop a few pounds…someone might even want to ‘eliminate’ an individual from your life who has been dragging you down…Well, whatever the case may be, You are definitely going to need the The Holy Spirit to get You through this thing. Remember He is Our ‘Tag-Team’ Partner in this thing called Life. He’s there…just outside the ring of Your Soul, with His arms stretched out over the ropes waiting for You to realize that You cannot win this thing all alone. Can’t you hear him??…cheering you on but, and also reminding you that He wants to help!!

He says,

Hey!

Don’t forget Me!!

I’m Your Comforter…ready to bandage you up when life has knocked you around!!

Your counselor…when you need advice!!

Your Helper… cause you can’t do it all by yourself!!

Your Advocate… when you need someone to speak for you!!

Your Intercessor…because I’m praying for You, and seeking Out God’s will for your life!!

Your Strengthener…there to encourage you when your faith falls short!!

Your Standyby…and I’m tired of standing by over here on the other side of this ring!!

Would You Please Tag Me In!!

I Got You and We are definitely going to make it through this thing together!!

Remember,

In the End…We Win!!

Thanks For Stopping By…Until We Meet Again,

God Loves You and So Do I!!

Slay Your Giants with the Sword of the Spirit!!

-For the weapons of our warfare are not physical [weapons of flesh and blood], but they are mighty before God for the overthrow and destruction of strongholds,-
(2 Corinthians 10:4)

Hey Neighbor,

As I was reading through 1 Samuel chapter 17 this morning, I was particularly taken in by verses 49-51. It just reminds me again that the weapons of our warfare are not physical, but spiritual!! When we use God’s word against our enemies, we are able to slay our dragons…and just like Goliath,…The Bigger they are, the Harder they Fall!!

So often when We have heard the story of how David defeated the giant Goliath, We have been lead to believe that David killed Goliath with only a slingshot and a stone, but when We read verse 49, scripture tells Us that after that stone sank into Goliath’s forehead, Goliath just fell on his face….verse 51 goes on to tell Us that Goliath was not killed until David drew the sword to cut off his head…

So what does that mean to You?

Well, again we must realize that, contrary to what most of Us have been taught, Goliath was not slain by a stone…but he was slain by the sword, i. e. the Sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God.

Remember is verse 23, When that arrogant Goliath made his daily debut, he would come out before the Philistine armies everyday, ‘talking trash’ and spiritually intimidating the Israelite armies. Verse 24 tells Us that the men of Israel were terrified at Goliath’s approach and they fled from him.

There was not one spiritual giant in the Israelite army that had the courage and boldness to talk back to this oversized devil, except for David.

Now David knew God and he knew God’s Word and although he had come, armed for battle with sling and stone, he first came prophesying…and speaking out against Goliath with the Words that could have only come from the Spirit of the Lord that was upon him.

In Verse 45, David says, “I come to you in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the ranks of Israel, Whom you have defied. This day the Lord will deliver you into my hand, and I will smite you and cut off your head.

I can hear David now, “Ok Goliath! Whenever you get done talking Trash, I’m gonna cut you down today with my handy dandy slingshot, in the Name of the God of Israel…then I’m gonna put that big head of yours on a platter!!

So David aimed for Goliath’s forehead and took him down with the stone, but it was the Sword that caused the fatal blow to Goliath. David Cut Goliath down with God’s Words!!

So when those oversized demons come against you ‘talking trash,’ reminding You of Your past transgressions, replaying painful defeats, and stirring up old wounds…Just CUT him!!

CUT him down with the Word of God!!

And as You take the time to read 1 Samuel Chapter 17, notice that scripture goes on to tell Us in verse 51 that after the backup soldiers of the Philistine armies saw that the mighty Goliath was defeated, they fled.

I Love That!!

So that means…that Not only can You use the Word to CUT off that GIANT demon’s neck, but then…You can also put his little backup demons on the run!!

In Jesus’ Name!!

-So be subject to God. Resist the devil [stand firm against him], and he will flee from you-(James 4:7)
