Prayers and Meditation is Needed

The world is forever changing and we will have to face some of the heartless. In those times when trouble comes up against us we will need extra shielding and “prayer.” We weren’t promised that we wouldn’t go through troubles and face adversity but we’re promised that we would be supplied with the armor of protection. God gives us the choice to choose whether we will want with Him or we will leave Him out of our lives. If we want to receive any peace then we need to keep God and Jesus near.

Evil exist and some may perceive that their wrongs aren’t actually wrongs so they may come up against those near and far. If one has removed God from their lives then they won’t see how to be right with anyone. Prayer is our solitude, it helps us when times are good and bad, it keeps us close to God. Praying in silence with no distractions is the best way to hear what God says. Asking Jesus to help us get through our days will help with carrying loads.

When people try to come up against us we must realize that we’re not fighting with the flesh but we’re fighting against principalities. It may not be so easy for those who aren’t spiritual to understand but James 1:19-20 says,”My dear brothers and sisters take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen slow to speak, and slow to anger, 20 because human anger does not produce the righteousness that God desires.

Through anger comes destruction if not controlled. We will get upset and angry but we shouldn’t allow our anger to cause harm or to create war we’re in times where we must pray harder and longer. We must remain strong with the word because evil exist and although we won’t be filled with all good. We can overcome the attacks that are orchestrated by Satan. We all have the capabilities to allow Satan to use us and he does so when we’re most vulnerable. We should remain quiet and listen to what God tells us. We can place the “Armor of God” on when we’re under attack.

Spiritual Warfare

Spiritual Warfare is real. The way that we get through it is by being close to God and Jesus and using the weapons that we’re provided. We must pray continuously and ask to cast out anything that doesn’t create peace and will create malice and destruction. When we come up against others we are being sinful. God says that avenge but that vengeance belongs to Him. If we need to feel is wrath then it will provided by the Living God and not by any man, woman, or child.

When attacks are headed our way. We should think about what Jesus went through. Satan wanted to temp Jesus but because Jesus had strong faith and he is the Son of God. Satan was unsuccessful with his tactics. He works harder on us because of our sinful nature but although we may sin. God forgives us when we ask and have it within our hearts. Thank God. We should also consider what Job went through. Job was full of “faith” and he went through trial after trial but he remained faithful and received more than he had before.

We’re tested and we go through processing periods. We will face adversity and that’s apart of life. It helps us to be strong but not every attack is made for that. Some attacks are formed through envy and are formed because someone or others may not want to see us prosper. We should pray for them and pray for everyone. There’s nothing that God will allow that’s too great for us to bare. God can do all things and with Christ we can do all things. God can step in at anytime and He isn’t pleased when we take things in our own hands when dealing with His people. We should pray and allow God to deal with it accordingly.

Sometimes are hurt draws in destruction. Bitterness is a gateway and we cause people to come up against us or we’ll come up against them. That’s why it’s necessary that we pray and pray deeply. Our prayers aren’t unanswered but of course not all prayers are answered in our timing but in God’s time. We must continue to have faith that God will work things out and continue to love one another so that we don’t try to condemn ourselves.

The World we Live in

Now is the time when we may not be surprised what occurs. There’s more evil than love. Praying can keep one sane. If it causes your head to spin then distance yourself from it. We may not know who is who but when we find out. We better go into continuous prayer. Even when hell breaks loose. God is there. He sees and He knows.

When people attack us. We’re in battle and we should keep our armor on. Attacks arise when victory is near. As long as God loves us that’s the most important thing. We can be mocked, taunted, and have stones thrown at us but God protects us. Satan doesn’t bother with those who works for him. He focuses on those who are doing the will of God or making attempts to.

Praying for those who have chosen to be our enemies is what we should do. Not always easy but God said we should and He knows. We could either lay down and surrender or keep praying and moving forward. There’s always someone wanting you to give up.

When attacks come. The main target is your mind. The body comes after. A lot of the ailments we suffer from are Satan’s works. We can rebuke them. When people are trying to attack your mind. The best defense is prayer. Prayer along with “The Armor of God.” Don’t take the armor off. That’s when things spin out of control.

Being attacked isn’t easy but the strong ones are the ones who face the most attacls. The more you pray and read God’s words. The more attacks will come. Satan becomes fearful. He wants to defeat God but he can not. He roams the earth trying to devour God’s people. He isn’t that strong so he has to use people to do his dirty work. When he sends attacks. He seeks families. He will use those closest to you.

Praying for protection is what anyone who is under attack should be doing. He hates when we pray and talk to God and Jesus. Jesus told Satan to get behind him. He refused to listen to what Satan had to say. He had nothing to prove to him and why should he? If you’re facing attacks then you should read and consume the word of God. If there’s no prayer then no protection will follow.

Spiritual Maturity

In order for us to grow, some things need to be removed from us, we may not feel good when the growing occurs but it’s worth it in the end. A tree starts small and over the years it grows and expands. We’re like a tree. Sometimes it takes longer to sprout and sometimes we lose all our leaves because we refuse to “grow.”

When we’re growing, especially spirituality, we will be faced with harshness. We will have to hear and see things that we may not want to hear or see but it’s necessary. Not everything is meant to hurt us but it’s put before us so that we grow. I won’t say that it won’t hurt. Oh it will but the hurt will pass. Those who are more spiritually mature will help guide us.

Anyone who has to mature, will go through more than others, they will face different adversities. I’m not speaking about marurity from boy to man or girl to woman but maturity in a spiritual sense. We can’t grow with the same thinking as we had in the immature stage. There will be those tough days and we may feel unappreciated or misunderstood. When that happens. We must quickly snap out of it and get back on task.

One we’ve completed our assignment, we’ll be freed from the agony, we’ll be closer to God and Jesus. Even when we face difficulties we’re not alone. Those tough times are there for our spiritual maturity. We can’t give up just because we’re facing heaviness, harhness, punches. Not actual punches but some times we’ll feel as if punches have landed all over our bodies.

Don’t be alarmed when people think that you’re peculiar when you’re maturing. Not everyone will understand your travel, assignment, and calling. God knows just what we need and He will give it to you. All those troublesome times will pass. Not saying that you won’t face difficulties but they will be different and you will learn how to battle. To battle means to fight, fight against evil, fight against anything demonic. There’s no need to worry about who or what will come after you because God never leaves and neither does Jesus. God’s love will conquer all.

Lets be “Peacemakers”

Sometimes people will come into our lives and try to shake things up a bit. Remember that Satan is real and he will use the ones closest to you. If you put on the armor and fight with God’s word then he will cease. Rebuke him and pray for those who try to come up against you. We don’t have to be consumed with stress. Sometimes we place ourselves in stressful situations, they could’ve been avoided if we would only avoid them, we shouldn’t always avoid because we’re called to be “Peacemakers.”

I won’t say that it’s easy going through trials here and there but with “faith” we can overcome anything. We have to believe that our situations will change, our troubles will leave, and peace will find us. Why should we live in poverty? We can do something about it, for one we must find the best paths to take. That special person in your life can change and help you encounter your peace. We have to stop fighting against one another and how do we do that? Prayer, worshipping, believing. We must believe that our environments will become peaceful.

Love one another, we all know that Satan wants us to attack one another, he doesn’t want peace. If people are unwilling to be peaceful then we should project it. Soon they will get tired of projecting hate and they will want peace. We don’t have to put up with a lot of the things that we put up with. We’ve allowed people to get away with too much. We’ve forgotten to “pray.” We’ve put down our armor and we should’ve have. We should be prepared for battle. We should be prepared for spiritual warfare. We’re in those times.

God isn’t pleased at the way we’ve been behaving and the things that are happening in the world but He’s a “forgiving” God. He gives us an opportunity to fix it. Perhaps those issues that keep knocking at our door keep coming because He wants our attention. We can’t fight evil with evil and we’ve been going about it the wrong way. Unless we get it together, we’ll keep going through war, we’ll keep feeling depression and anger. Rebuke it. We don’t need those things in our lives. If we ask God to remove those things He will. Continue to prayer for healing and protection.

“Go in Peace and allow the Peacemakers to do Their Jobs.”
