I shared an email with a friend recently. It was a quote from Charles Swindoll about Attitude Determining Altitude.
I was trying to share “HOPE”…
He replied with brief thanks for the encouragement……. … and then he went right on to share a link to a HORRIBLE VIDEO NEWS REPORT about how the economy is going to get worse before it gets better.
Now don’t get me wrong when I say this video news report is HORRIBLE. It is actually well done, and probably accurate. But it is so discouraging when such a HORRIBLE SET OF PREDICTIONS are made by some news pundit (currently playing on yahoo finance page).
SO MY QUESTION FOR YOU TODAY is - WHAT (or WHO) ARE YOU GOING TO BELIEVE?
I serve a risen savior, have access to the self same power that raised him from the dead, command an army of angels, and cannot be overcome. I believe the author/creator of it ALL who said darkness cannot overcome light.
I encourage you to turn the news off and create your own future - independent of the herd!
OK… OK… Reality does have to be dealt with. I know… But only by “EARTH PEOPLE” : )
Those of us who are spiritual can walk on water, part the red sea, feed thousands with little, and otherwise “bind and loose” with help from our Father in Heaven. If you don’t know what this power is, “to bind and loose” then search an online bible or get your butt to a church that lives it and JOIN IN!
So… Soldier… (In my best General Patton Voice) It’s time to get up, out of that bunker, and charge straight into the face of the enemy - just to prove it can be done.
This enemy might be called the NIGHTLY NEWS, or BAD NEWS (AKA “Troubling Spirits” in OT Lexicon). IT’S TIME TO TAKE SOME GROUND FOR THE KINGDOM, AND SHOW THE WORLD AND THE ENEMY THAT WE CAN DO WHAT MERE MORTALS CANNOT!
When we go forward with hope, that shines a light into a dark place. People will want to know what drives us… That’s when we can share a testimony with great result!
When it’s over, and the day is done, and you have accomplished your miracle… Share - Teach - Show the WAY : )
Oh, yeah… LEST WE FORGET - Each day is new, so…. you get to win, and accomplish miracles, and share, teach, show the way - EVERY DAY : )
PS - I just did my part….. NOW IT’S YOUR TURN : )
