“Put on God’s whole armor [the armor of a heavy-armed soldier which God supplies], that you may be able successfully to stand up against [all] the strategies and the deceits of the devil. For we are not wrestling with flesh and blood [contending only with physical opponents], but against the despotism, against the powers, against [the master spirits who are] the world rulers of this present darkness, against the spirit forces of wickedness in the heavenly realm.”-Ephesians 6:11-12 (Amplified)

“Consider it wholly joyful, my brethren, whenever you are enveloped in or encounter trials of any sort of fall into various temptations. Be assured and understand that the trial and proving of your faith bring out endurance and steadfastness and patience. But let endurance and steadfastness and patience have full play and do a thorough work, so that you may be [people] perfectly and fully developed [with no defects], lacking in nothing. If any of you is deficient in wisdom, let him ask of the giving God [Who gives] to everyone liberally and ungrudgingly, without reproaching, or faultfinding, and it will be given him. Only it must be in faith that he asks with no wavering (no hesitating, no doubting). For the one who wavers (hesitates, doubts) is like the billowing surge out at sea that is blown hither and thither and tossed by the wind. For truly, let not such a person imagine that he will receive anything [he asks for] from the Lord. [For being as he is] a man of two minds (hesitating, dubious, irresolute), [he is] unstable and unreliable and uncertain about everything [he thinks, feels, decides].”
“I am persuaded that God is able to do what He said He will do.”-Margo
“In this [union and communion with Him] love is brought to completion and attains perfection with us, that we may have confidence for the day of judgement [with assurance and boldness to face Him], because as He is, so are we in this world. There is no fear in love [dread does not exist], but full grown (complete, PERFECT) love turns fear out of doors and expels every trace of terror! For fear brings with it the thought of punishment, and [so] he who is afraid has not reached the full maturity of love [is not yet grown into love’s complete PERFECTION].”-1 John 4:17-18 (Amplified)
I said that to say this, Perfect Love absolutely exists but you must mature into it. It’s that LOVE that truly forgives ( you know the one that forgets along with it…knowing that if it doesn’t the problem will surely rear it’s ugly head again causing more problems). lol It’s funny that God even wanted to make sure that we knew it did exist…so the best example HE could come up with was by saying GOD IS LOVE. that embodies the fullness of who and what love is…SACRIFICE & UNDERSTANDING THAT NO MAN IN THIS MORTAL BODY IS PERFECT, but PERFECT LOVE from man is ATTAINABLE.-Margo
“And the Lord answered me and said, Write the vision and engrave it so plainly upon tablets that everyone who passes may [be able to] read [it easily and quickly] as he hastens by. For the vision is yet for an appointed time and it hastens to the end [fulfillment]; it will not deceive or disappoint. Though it tarry, wait [earnestly] for it, because it will surely come; it will not be behindhand on it’s appointed day.”-Habakkuk 2:2-3 (Amplified)
“However, I am telling you nothing but hte truth when I say it is profitable (good, expedient, advantageous) for you that I go away. Because if I do not go away, the Comforter (Counselor, Helper, Advocate, Intercessor, Strengthener, Standby) will not come to you [into close fellowship with you];but if I go away, I will send Him to you [to be in close fellowship with you].”-John 16:7 (Amplified)
“For if we go on DELIBERATELY and WILLINGLY sinning after once acquiring the knowledge of the TRUTH, there is no longer any sacrifice left to atone for (our) sins (no further offering to which to look forward). [There is nothing left for us then] but a kind of awful and fearful prospect and expectation of divine judgement and the fury of burning wrath and indignation which will consume those who put themselves in opposition [to GOD].”-HEBREWS 10: 26-27 (AMPLIFIED)
Hello dear readers!
I want to first thank Mr. Tyler Perry for inspiring this weeks Spiritual Food. I will put his “spiritual food” at the end of this, so be sure to read it. I have read Psalms 119:105 “The word is a lamp unto my feet and a light into my pathway” many times, but it wasn’t until today that I got a deeper understanding of this scripture. Remember how I’m always telling you guys to make sure you follow the PLAN THAT GOD HAS FOR YOUR LIFE, versus one that you may come up with, and that it (God’s plan) will bring you the most success you could ever endure in your life, along with glorifying God at the same time. Well what David was saying in this scripture is that’s exactly what he did!
See I am absolutely convinced that God’s Word (not just the logos (written word)) but His Rhema word (like heard through prayer) will lead us right into our destiny. Understand that though it tarry, wait for it! The Lamp (Word) cannot return to HIM void, it must accomplish what it was sent out to do. Therefore, believe it with all your heart, that you may see the manifestation. This is why it’s IMPOSSIBLE to please God without Faith, simply because if you don’t believe, how can experience TRUTH, Destiny,&God? When you read the word, or in your prayer time hear HIM say believe…He’s saying have Faith! Remember all it takes is faith the size of a mustard seed. Awww I’m about to shout in here. I hope you guys can get what I’m saying…if not, read what Mr. Tyler Perry had to say and be blessed. Read the rest of this entry »
*Note* First thing to notice, God waited until Lot left Abram to tell him about his blessing, everybody can’t go. Second, God told him to look from the place he (Abram) was at now. Envision where God wants to take you, right where you are right now.
