One of my favorite meals is breakfast. I look forward to melted butter and drizzled maple syrup over cinnamon and nutmeg pancakes or a loaded omelet with cheddar cheese, tomatoes, onions, mushrooms, and spinach. Of course, hazelnut coffee is my prerequisite and my daily motivator.
As much as I enjoy breakfast, I definitely need to eat lunch and dinner which provides me with extra energy, strength and substance to fuel me for the rest of the day.
Each day, we must also focus our attention on feeding our spirit with the Gospel. It provides the daily nutrients we need like faith, trust, integrity, grace, forgiveness, and a host of other ingredients needed in life.
The living word satisfies all of our needs and desires. It calms our fears and worries and provides us with solutions on how to tackle our obstacles and challenges.
When you’re filled with the Spirit of God, your cup overflows with His goodness, mercy and grace. Healing and deliverance is yours. The power of the word ignites your heart and mind.
The word of God provides the strength you need to overcome every obstacle, confront and destroy every enemy, break the yoke of bondage and stand in the midst of chaos and confusion with an unexplainable peace.
The word of God is a shield of protection. It covers us through sickness and disease, and attacks from anxiety, fear, stress, and depression.
To go through this year without the proper tools and strategies to move every mountain of hindrance, cease every storm of tribulation and overthrow the Pharaoh of captivity and bondage in your life would be detrimental and even catastrophic.
Let us position ourselves in daily prayer, repentance, and worship. Draw near to Jesus and He will draw near to you. It all starts with reading and meditating on the Word.
It’s time to stop running towards people, places and things to fill a void in your life. Choose a life that satisfies. It’s food for your soul.
Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.
10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
12 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.
13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
17 For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.
19 Let us, therefore, follow after the things which make for peace, and things wherewith one may edify another.
20 For meat destroy not the work of God. All things indeed are pure, but it is evil for that man who eateth with offense.
12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
