Book Release

My new book cover to be released mid-November 2018. Please purchase.

God our Mighty Warrior: Deuteronomy 20:4

God our Mighty Warrior: Deuteronomy 20:4

For the LORD your God is He that goeth with you, to fight for you against your enemies, to save you.

Today's message is taken from my November 2018 devotional that is available in eBook and paperback formats on Amazon Kindle. I felt the need to share this message because America, we are in a fierce battle with Satan and his evil minions who have made it their mission to destroy this country and all that it stands for. They are trying every way possible to stop many from voting who would vote the right way. I say to you, do not be afraid nor deterred because the God we serve will fight your battles. Do we vote in spite of the hindrances? Yes if we have to go to the polls in groups.
Join me in praying for God's divine intervention in this fight. We are God's people and will be victorious. Now let us look at the message and reflect on how God fought for the nation of Israel.
The writer of Deuteronomy is reminding the nation of Israel that God is a mighty warrior and that He will fight their battles only if they allowed Him to do so. This strategy applies for all today as God is the same today as He was then and will be for all generations to come.
Another point is what Moses was conveying to the people of Israel was that when preparing for war against their enemy was to take heart and have faith in the Lord God who had brought them out of Egypt. There is no army mightier than God. There was and will never be an army mightier than God Almighty. The people then and now must seek God and His presence before entering into any battle. God promised to take care of His people; He did and continues to do so. God is true to His promises and has kept them.
What does this say for us today as we embark upon our daily tasks knowing that we will be beset by obstacles as many are designed to deter and or to impede our progress? We are encouraged to seek God's presence first each day before making the journey. Ask Him to order our footsteps and we will follow as He directs our paths.
Follow God He knows the way and will fight your battles.

The Lord's Prayer: Matthew 6:9-13

 After this manner, therefore, pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

I have written many times on prayer; the reasons being (a) prayer is and always has been an essential component of a healthy Christian life. (b) Prayer is our communication with God and since the beginning of time man has always prayed to his god. The Almighty God is the only one worthy of our prayers, praise, and worship. (c) Based on our scripture text Jesus Himself valued prayer as did His disciples. Jesus' disciples asked Jesus to teach them how to pray. This expresses the importance of prayer and the disciples' desire to properly talk to God through prayer.
Jesus Himself prayed often. When He fed the five thousand with two fishes and five loaves of bread; when He was in the Garden of Gethsemane; He prayed. While hanging on the cross, Jesus prayed asking the Father to forgive them.
Another school of thought on my frequent discussions on prayer is in light of the current chaotic happenings in our society that is dominating the news prayers are needed and are being made by many. God hears and answers prayers of the righteous (James 5:16).
It is worth noting that as I interact with other Christians and lay people they too are writing, talking and making prayers to the Almighty God. This tells me that the Holy Spirit is at work as He is touching so many hearts directing them to pray and pray often.
There is a saying, "prayer changes things" and it does. The Bible bears record of the results of prayers that were made by God's people. The midnight prayer meeting made by Paul and Silas. They were released and the jailer and his household were saved. Peter was released from jail as the results of the church prayers.
Prayers are powerful and we can fight and win any battle on our knees. We are in a spiritual warfare that is being played out in high places as Satan has taken control of their person minds and hearts.
Prayer warriors, we are victorious; keep praying, because a change is coming.
