Im Starving…and I Don’t Care (Part 2)

So If starvation cause ultimately death than we have a HUGE problem, but we have a HUGE solution, JESUS!!

Deuteronomy 8:3
He humbled you, causing you to hunger and then feeding you with manna, which neither you nor your ancestors had known, to teach you that man does not live on bread alone but on every word that comes from the mouth of the LORD.

Catch that?…”man does not live on bread alone but on every word that comes from the mouth of the LORD.

We must be hearing, speaking, and reading Jesus every single day. Let’s put this into perspective, we eat everyday three times a day roughly. That means we fill our bodies up every single day. So does our spirit need nourishment? Well this verse is plain we need his Word EVERYDAY to survive. We need to hear, speak, read, or pray something every day for our spirit to survive and be nourished. We must be with Christ every day!

I personally have been in a spiritual hunger for quite a couple of weeks. I’ve read every now and again, but for some reason I have been so distracted that I just haven’t even had the desire to read God’s Word. My Spirit is quivering…I begin to think about this verse, and how I am willingly starving my Spirit. I know I love to eat (as most guys do), but I would never starve my body willingly…so why my Spirit?

See Satan wants anorexia Christians who feel weak  and can eventually die out 😦 He wants me to starve myself and for some reasonI willingly do. Even in these “drought” season’s though I know my God wants to fill me with his Word. He continually wants to talk and speak with us about the things He wishes to do. When we eat it gives us strength to fight, without nourishment we are further prone to sin. With his word we can…

Ephesians 4:22-24
that you put off, concerning your former conduct, the old man which grows corrupt according to the deceitful lusts, and be renewed in the spirit of your mind, and that you put on the new man which was created according to God, in true righteousness and holiness.

Im starving and I need to start caring, and help feed others too.

In fact I haven’t even read today…looks like it’s time to get off of Call of Duty and read…

Spiritual Warfare

  

   So as I sit, and think of all that has happened amongst the men in our group at Grace; I see blogs being started, more Unity, more Brotherhood, more Growth, and more Faith. This pass week, I’vehad accounts of things such as accountability and other things as just growth and God inspired thoughts from our youth. But today, I had so many thoughts and confirmations of Spiritual Warfare.
     It started this morning, when listening to one of Javier’s songs inspired by “The Screwtape Letters” book. The idea behind the song is Demons talking to other demons about how to tempt us as Christians. Than I had two accounts of friends and friends of family tell me about there need for demonic interventions in the home. Saturday, is where a team of us willl go with all intention of furthering our kingdom of christ, so please pray….But as I pray and seek God’s advice I see this, one he has been with them from the strart, but something has left them vulnerable for attack. Maybe closet sin, unforgiveness, or something yet to be revealed. Two, I see this, God is bigger than any circumstance, and especially any demon. He has entitled us power, and revelation.
     The word of God is our sword! My question is how big is your sword, and how sharp? Our sheildis made by Faith! How big and durable is your shield? Does it wither because of experiences you’ve had, and does it have bruises for your lack of trust? One thing that really blows my mind is this: In spiritual realm you don’t look like flesh and bones. You are as tall, buff, and warrior like as you have put time after Christ! You grow stronger as you pursue Christ, and your as strong as every word that comes from the mouth of God. You have billions upon billions of angels watching over you, and yet we still doubt? Remember God has already given you victory, and Satan is beneath you in ANY CIRCUMSTANCE.  How big are you in spirit form?

Will DEMONS feel intimidated when YOU walk in a room……
