Want to fight spiritual obesity?
Put on the full armour of God so you can stand against the devil's schemes...Pray also for me that whenever I open my mouth, words may be given me so that I can FEARLESSLY make known the mystery of the gospel. (Eph 6). We all know about God's armour but do we know what battle it's for? The devil and his demons know a lot more than the average person. They know the power of the name of JESUS. When this little baby was born to an unmarried mother in a poverty stricken overcrowded outhouse in an occupied middle east country the demonic powers were so enraged that all the boys in Bethleham and its vicinity aged 2 and under were massacred in a savage attempt to wipe Him out! " Awake, Awake O Zion, clothe yourself with strength...shake off your dust; rise up...free yourself from the chains" (Isaiah 52). Want to fight spiritual obesity? (too much good food of the word and too little exercise of His will) Find someone who is doing the work of the Lord and join them. Peter had the faith to raise Dorcas from the dead because he was with Jesus when Jairus' daughter was raised! Some are out sharing their faith in different ways...Join them and let God teach you directly by doing (the Jesus teaching method!!).
The photo was taken this morning when I was out in front of 11,000 Dublin City Marathon runners. Every single breath taken during the race was a gift from God...think about it! Ant 0879795454
