Good morning, 1 Samuel 30 David has won a battle, but returns to the camp with his men to find that their wives and children have been taken. David and the men begin to experience worry and outrage.
6 And David was greatly distressed; for the people spake of stoning him, because the soul of all the people was grieved, every man for his sons and for his daughters: but David encouraged himself in the Lord his God.
7 And David said to Abiathar the priest, Ahimelech’s son, I pray thee, bring me hither the ephod. And Abiathar brought thither the ephod to David.
8 And David enquired at the Lord, saying, Shall I pursue after this troop? shall I overtake them? And he answered him, Pursue: for thou shalt surely overtake them, and without fail recover all.
What has the enemy taken from you that has your attention? Have you consulted God and began to study to find the solution to the challenge your facing? Or are you still blaming the enemy for taking your things?
Christians and those who God chase must realize that dwelling on the challenge will only add more challenges. Change your focus and learn how to overcome the challenge. Study the situation, the challenge came our way because we’re able to obtain the solution. Study empowers one with knowledge, which is why David inquired to the Lord. Examples of over coming challenges are if your having relationship challenges learn what caused the problem. If your having financial challenges study budgeting and tithing. Whatever you’re challenged with has a solution, the key is desiring to grow beyond it and really wanting to be done with the thing. God bless you and have a great day! In Jesus Name Amen

Good morning and afternoon!!All over the world we praise God as we connect lifting up the word. For the power that resurrects is in Jesus name! The power that liberates is in Jesus name! In side the name of Jesus the power to bind demons is found! We praise God for the power and authority in the word and the name of Jesus!
31 So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed him, “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples,32 and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” 33 They answered him, “We are offspring of Abraham and have never been enslaved to anyone. How is it that you say, ‘You will become free’?”
The truth is a word or words that bring liberation to the mind and heart which allows conscious freedom. Conscious freedom lies in the realm of our thoughts, what we think moment by moment. Abiding in the word means making the change to think and speak on the things that draw us all nearer to Christ thinking. Christlike thinking is what brings liberation, it does not conform to the world and its ways. Christlike thinking does not pervert the word of God to fit its on will, Christlike thinking and speaking lines up with the word of God. The word tells us in James to be doers of the word and not only hearers. Many of us have suffered, because of our own actions which came from our own thinking (flesh) rather than Gods. When abiding in the word we find ourselves becoming free because of the washing the word brings as Jesus spoke in John 15, we then abide more in the word trusting His will, keeping faith that God will perfect those things that concern is as we become more accountable and repenting for those acts that lie outside of the word.
Amen in Jesus name!
Pray with me and I am praying with you!
