YOUR BATTLE IS NOT AGAINST PEOPLE

Is there someone you’re having difficulty dealing with…a family member, a boss, a neighbour, or someone else? Whatever the wrong that’s been done to you, it’s the demonic power behind it that is your real enemy.

When the giant Goliath taunted and threatened the armies of Israel, little David went after him with a slingshot, five small stones—and unstoppable faith! You have greater faith than David did because Jesus lives inside of you. God has given you the power to look past the offense to see the real enemy. Armed with faith, you are a “giant killer” and can overcome all things!

Ephesians 6:12
KJV: “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”

MyOwnLife – 25 December 2019

Sunday morning, I was sad and wanted to go home so badly. I prayed and prayed. The first week after I moved in, I went through tremendous trauma – here all alone, and dealing with everything, as well as the move to a different state – was just getting me down. (its now 4 weeks since I moved here)

I got on my knees, and my words were crystal clear “…God, if You want me to stay here, please show it to me in Your Word. But please God, show me clearly either to stay in this city or go back to the jungle…” Still today I don’t know why I used those words, but I did. And after I prayed, I opened my bible on a random page and started reading.

Luke 24 : 48 & 49
“Your are witnesses of these things. Listen carefully: I am sending the Promise of My Father upon you: but you are to remain in the city until you are clothed with power from on high”


And I burst into tears; confused and in the same time amazed and touched and everything great. The exact words I asked for minutes before in prayer, God answered me.

God speaks to us the way that we understand. And I was open, I listened, and understood.

I am by nature focused, have direction, strong minded, strong willed, I don’t take the bull by the horns – I take the bull and the horns and I go. Not knowing what God has in store for me here and now, is not an easy thing for a personality like mine. But resting in His Hands and feeling my Faith grows by the second, is the most peaceful feeling I have ever had in 43 years. And through all the years He gave me all the right Gear.. and He wants me to share it with you.

Years ago God promised me in Phil 4:7 that He will give me peace that transcends all understanding, and He is keeping to His promise – as always ❤

“If ever I have to trust, now is the time”

Haven’t we all felt that at some stage in our lives?   Today is no joke, today I have to trust God even more than ever before.

I find myself, living in a house 1500 km away from everything and everyone I know.    Everything I am and worked for, for the last 43 years. How did I get here..?    Well that is simple, through God, and God alone.  

Before I made this move, I prayed, fasted and prayed some more, for something to stand in the way of me moving here.  Even thou living coastal was what I always wanted, I am not sure I wanted it now – this minute.  I was “pushed” into this now.   Today I know it was God’s hand that pushed me in this direction..  I still own a house 1500 km from where I am now, so it doesn’t make any sense.
The more I prayed for God to stop this move, the easier He made the move.   From finding the perfect house to the actual move – every step was child’s play.

If it was about me and not all about God, I would most definitely not be here.  If I could go home today, I would be there in a blink of an eye.    And I will tell you more about why I can not move back home now under My Own Life Category, today’s date. 

So now that I know God wants me here, I am patiently waiting on Him to use me where He needs me.  If there is one gift I have, it’s the gift of fully trusting in God.   Faith!

Let’s take this journey, holding tight onto God’s Hand.  

Psalm 37:5    “Commit they way unto the Lord, trust also in him, and He shall bring it to pass”
