The Bible says you can overcome Satan by the word of your testimony,
So without wasting another minute, I have some things i need to confess, I need to say right now!
"THANK YOU LORD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
The Devil has been tormenting me lately, He's been trying to pull me down, Pull me apart, He has been literally trying to destroy me lately, Mentally- And I keep trying to push him away, I keep trying to ignore him, But he still seems to find a way to get to me!
1 Peter 5:8-9 Say's "Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that your brothers throughout the world are undergoing the same kind of sufferings."
(He's constantly walking back and forth, looking for you, looking for that person who God is trying to work on and work with, And he knows your weaknesses, He tries every way in the world to get to you, To destroy you, To devour you. DONT LET HIM! REBUKE HIM IN THE NAME OF JESUS!!!)
And if all im doing fails, Then im going to over come him now,
By the word of a testimony!
But first i want to say, "Satan I Rebuke you in the Name of Jesus! You have no power over me and you never will! I am a Child of God and i am in HIS hands!!!!!"
God knows i have several Testimonies, There is so many things the Lord has done for me over the years, So many things i have to be Thankful for, From helping me with battling bulimia- To Every other thing i have come in contact with.... (depression, suicidle thoughts, and so on..........)
But today i have to say, God has been tugging at my heart, for a while now, And every thing else in the world keeps getting in the way, But thankfully i have a God that wont quit, Untill he get's me where he wants me. And i have a God that i can call out to for help, and strength, and guidance, and he will never turn away from me, If i call, He will answer, without thinking twice (orrr pushing the ignore button, grrr) -----And im not there yet, I know, But im slowly getting there.
The things i've been praying for lately, And begging God for lately, And the things my heart has been wanting for a while now, God has been giving me, Even though i dont deserve them, He has been giving these things to me.
I cannot even express how thankful i am for what God is putting in my heart and mind right now, And for what he's doing in my life!
These are personel things, Which i dont know if i wanna write it all out right now, But i do want to say that God is faithful and God's love is real, and its unconditional, And he wants to give us the desires of our hearts, He wants to give us the things we long for, And if we just hold on, And be patient, Have Faith and Keep asking God, And begging him for our hearts desires he will give them to you!
"Delight yourself in the LORD and he will give you the desires of your heart." Psalm 37:4
I've been praying and praying and praying for a few things for a while now, And my prayers have been answered!!!
So, Thank you Lord, I know i didnt tell much in DETAIL- But still!! God has been answering my prayers, And God has been good to me!!!
God is good, and he is GREAT and he loves me, and i love him, And that should be a BIG slap in the Devil's face ;P
Our God is a great big God, There is nothing he cannot do, And there is nothing we cannot do with him By our sides, and in our hearts!!!!
I also want to say, That i am VERY proud of myself that i have officially read a total of 3 Books in the Bible, and im starting on the fourth!
And now im reading Numbers :)
Not sure if you know this or not, But im not much of a fan of reading, And sadly, I used to find it easier to open up a worldly book (like the twilight books) before i'd open up my Bible........
But i've been praying, and fasting, And ive given up time out of my day, to spend time reading my bible, And i wanna Thank God for putting the want in my heart to do that! Thank you God!!!
"It is written: 'Man does not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.'" Matthew 4:4
You know what's funny? The exact reason i started reading my Bible this year, Was because- Of that personel thing i prayed for :) So check that out....... I started reading my Bible, For a reason, And that reason turned out to be an answered prayer!!! If that makes any sense!
Anyway the point of all of this is, I want to give God Thanks.. He's done so much for me over the years, and even though i am rotten sometimes- God loves me, And he's going to continute to do things for me, As he is doing RIGHT NOW.
And it's a shame for all of these things not to mentioned! If God does something for you, Shout it LOUD AND PROUD Thank you Lord!! Tell somebody about something God has done for you today!
I know when the Pastor say's.. "Does anyone have a testimony they would like to share?" Everyone gets a little shy and embarassed, And even though they have SO many things they'd love to tell the whole crowd, The Devil gets the best of us by making us embarassed, And then we dont say a word.. Which i find so funny, A church full of people and only the Elderly and the Pastor has a testimony, When you know God has done several things for the entire crowd.. (heh, i know im one of those people)
But thats what the internet is good for (shh) You cant see me, lol Im typing behind a screen, So im not so embarassed! But i am so Thankful and so Proud!!
And i love God, And i believe in Him, And i have faith in Him, And all that he has promised to us!!
Also, if your looking for a good book to read, Check out "The Spirit Of Faith- Turning Defeat into Victory And Dreams into Reality" by Mark Hankins
My Brother recently gave me this book, It's his- And i've been reading some of it here and there, It's been reallly good, And in the middle of reading it, I got inspired to write this blog. It was one of those things that normally happen to me, I get a spark lit inside of me, and i jump up, Stop everything im doing, Get somewhere all by myself, and then i type type type.. And Voila! A new Blog is born!! lol
"Give Thanks To The Lord, For he is GOOD; His love endures forever!" -Psalm 106:1
So now, i am going to end this Blog.. But i am going to leave you with this note... Get your Bible out right now, And read with me!! As soon as i post this im going to read PSALM 119. It is the LONGEST chapter in Psalm, And sadly... (UGHH!! I REBUKE YOU AGAIN IN THE NAME OF JESUS SATAN!!!) I AM VERRRRY A.D.D... So for me to sit here and read a longgggggggggg chapter, Well i feel a little anxiety, lolol!!! Isnt that horrible!?!?!? Thats the devil putting stupid stuff in my head now! Im not A.D.D, Im just special :) :)
By the way, I have no clue what Psalm 119 is about or what is said in it.. A Preacher on Tv was saying to read it the other day "MIKE MURDOCK" And i wrote it in my Montly Planner book thingy, But i forgot to read it =/ Soooo.. Yeah gonna read it now! Happy Reading! :)
