Jordan For Jesus #003 "God Wins" (Thursday Series) by Jordan Elizabeth on 2014-03-06 07:07:50
No matter what you may be facing in life.. God always wins. He alone is the eternal God. Every situation that we face in this life is temporary, and God has overcome it all. The war against sin was won on the cross. The spiritual war is won on our knees, and in the end Jesus will return to this earth to win the war against satan.
Anytime you think that no one can possibly understand your situation just remember all of Jesus' suffering on the cross. Know which battles to fight, which battles to let God fight, and which battles God has already won. Because we, as followers of Jesus Christ, are in Christ, and we are on the winning side.
Keep trusting God with an unshakable faith, because the outcome is God has already won. Guarding the words you speak is so important! Words have significance and are truly powerful. The power to speak life and death is in the tongue. Words kill or give life. Choose to speak life!
Be kind, honest and just. Speak God's truth in His love! Speak Jesus and let all of your words continuously point to Him in everything! Let Christ, who is life, be your voice!
"No weapon forged against you will prevail, and you will refute every tongue that accuses you. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and this is their vindication from Me," declares the LORD." Isaiah 54:17
"The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit." Proverbs 18:21
“I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” John 16:33
"The righteous person may have many troubles, but the LORD delivers him from them all." Psalm 34:19
"He says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.” Psalm 46:10
"The LORD will fight for you; you need only to be still." Exodus 14:14
"For the LORD your God is the one who goes with you to fight for you against your enemies to give you victory." Deuteronomy 20:4
As we smiled at the people we met on our walk I wondered at the social custom that requires face-to-face congeniality on a bike path among strangers who would soon be in our respective cars fighting over a lane change. It’s easier to be mad at people when we can’t see their faces.
Slightly Obsessed #226: Triune
In its most basic element, our very existence mirrors His Godhead in trinity. Each person enters time and space as three: body, soul, and spirit.
Slightly Obsessed #225: Why Lightning Doesn't Strike the Wicked
The popular radio host was on a rampage, vehemently damning God. He crowned the diatribe by flinging a challenge at God to strike him down at that very moment. He smugly interpreted heaven's silence as proof that there is no God. But what was really happening?
Slightly Obsessed #224: When the Pressure Feels Too Great
The fig I found in a local big box store had already been trimmed into a lovely miniature tree with an unusual trunk. Little did I understand what it takes to train a plant into a bonsai, and what that process would teach me about God.
Slightly Obsessed #223: Right Clothes, Wrong Spirit
Satan seeks to deceive us, divide us, and destroy us. His bag of tricks and sleight of hand are impressive but imaginary trapdoors to disillusionment. He constantly roams the earth in an insatiable search for humans to devour.
Slightly Obsessed #222: The Rain
Like the grass, the human heart has shallow roots and fades quickly in the dry season. But those shallow roots also are the first to taste the rain.
