Sunday Sermon Series – Dry Powder

2 Timothy 2:15 Truth: Verse of the Day: Proverbs 21:31 KJV

PROVERBS 21:31

The horse is prepared for the day of battle, But deliverance is of the LORD.

El caballo se alista para el día de la batalla; Mas Jehová es el que da la victoria.


The horse was for centuries used as a weapon of war. Just as the soldier needed to be prepared for battle so too the horse also needed to be prepared or armored up. Solomon here is making the distinction that no mater how great the war horse under him, man’s true confidence, safety or deliverance in found only in the Lord. 

Today we may not have to mount up on a trusty steed each morning and prepare for battle, but we have no less obligation to armor up. We all know that God, the Holy Spirit  through the Apostle Paul implores us to do just that, Armor up daily in Ephesians 6:10-18.  The battle may not be physical but it is not less demanding.

Trust in God and Keep Your Powder Dry – Proverbs 21:31 

Get Your Armor On…

The Abuse Expose' with Secret Angel

Get your armor on…
and then prepare to stand…
for many are equipped…
but still don’t understand.
For the battle is not ours…
but the Lord’s to win today…

Violence— A Problem of the Heart

Image result for Violence--- A Problem of the Heart

Violence…
is a problem of the heart…
and it’s from this point…
that analysis needs to start.
For the society we’re in…
has been desensitized today…
by things seen on television,
video games and words some say.
And there’s a bitterness…
and anger that seems to linger…
that causes many to become violent…
when something becomes a trigger.
And like a drunk driver’s wrong…
and the vehicle’s not to blame…
the gun’s not at fault…
when a crazed shooter goes insane.
And like a pharmacy is not at fault…
with a drug addict buys or deals…
the problem is in the heart…
of one who kills, destroys, and steals.
For there is much violence…
seen in many homes today…
and children are desensitized…
when they witness any violence this way.
So what can we do…
as a society to make a change…
we need to have God in our hearts…
so our lives will not be the same.
We need to invite God back…
in our schools and in our homes…
then transformation can occur…
when the Love of Christ is known.
For only God can being healing…
to the hardness of any heart…
so He is the Key to our future…
where all violence will depart.

Fighting For Your Life

Image result for fighting for our lives spiritually

Fighting for your life…
every step of the way…
is not what God wants for us…
is my message for today.
Cause many have had to fight…
the battles that rage within…
but we have to find the Peace of God…
for those battles to come to an end.
For negative words and deeds…
get embedded in our minds and hearts…
so we have to be renewed by God’s Word…
in order to get new fresh starts.
For a deep cleansing is needed…
to get the “dirt” out that’s been thrown…
but unfortunately for many of us…
the negative is all that’s been known.
But when we realize God’s Word…
is the Truth upon which we can rely…
then we can finally discard…
every painful word, deed, and lie.
And we can stop fighting our way…
through negative words that repeatedly attack…
as we declare God’s Word over our lives…
and send every negative word back.
For we will no longer receive…
the negative words that have been spoken…
for we will be renewed by Him…
and no longer be wounded and broken.

What The Enemy Meant For Harm…

 

 

As I remember some of the events in my life that occurred during this week several years ago, the words came to me, “What the enemy meant for harm, God turned it around for your good.” My whole life has changed since these events… and yours can too.

This is not a new phenomenon of course but in the age of computers and such,  there is really no excuse for a “believer”  not living daily as a Berean (Acts 17:11). Yet far to many follow the Jews of old, Jeremiah 6:10 ESV “To whom shall I speak and give warning, that they may hear? Behold, their ears are uncircumcised, they cannot listen; behold, the word of the Lord is to them an object of scorn; they take no pleasure in it.” or those of the modern church Paul warned of 2 Timothy 2:3-4  “For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions, 4 and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander off into myths.”  I cannot count the number of times I have heard “my Pastor says or said” and when I ask, great but what does the Word of God say?  It is a rarity when I do not get that deer in the headlights look of confusion. – Mike

 

“Do You Trust Me?”

“Do you trust Me?”…
were the words I heard God say…
as I voiced all my concerns today…
while talking to Him as I pray.
And then I had to repent…
for my worldly concerns or fears…
when I heard Him say these words…
though I knew He was always near.
For God does not want us to worry…
or to have even a single concern…
He just wants us to rest in Peace…
and walk in faith as we learn.
So as we pray for our children,
finances, and entire family…
He wants us to lay it all down…
and trust Him with it in entirety.
No concerns for the future…
and no fear of the unknown…
for He holds it all in His Hands…
and His faithfulness is always shown.
Now He knows what we need…
and even our hearts deepest desire…
but He just wants us to trust Him…
and seek Him with hearts afire.
For there’s no thought that He misses…
and nothing that He does not see…
but it all comes together in an instant,
when you hear, “Do you trust Me?”

Dear Lord!! Yes, I trust You Lord!! I trust You with my life, children,  finances, and my entire family! I trust You with my book, our future, and entire ministry.  Lord, we just humbly lay all our concerns down at Your Feet and say Lord have Your way… and though we don’t see the outcome, we will trust You with it all anyway. We pray for all the broken who struggle with life and need your guiding Hand. We ask You to touch them and lead them in ways that they won’t even understand. Help us all to walk in total faith, not by sight; and be led by Your Spirit and Your guiding Light. That all Your plans and purposes for our lives will be achieved as we walk in faith and total trust with Your promises believed… in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
