proceedings of your home, your vehicle may have been repossessed; you’ve gotten
a bad report from the doctor; and every other bill is past due, then to further

articles are not meant to be your emotional, motivational jolts; but rather
they are Spirit led with the expressed purpose of awakening your spirit man to
the fact that there’s a spiritual battle raging.
And your adversary (Satan) will stop at
nothing when it comes to trying to destroy you and gaining the advantage over
weapons that are used in this spiritual battle are not as those used in the
natural / military battles of today; here’s what the Apostle Paul says about it:
(For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God
to the pulling down of strong holds;)
of the most powerful weapons that the saints have in his / her arsenal is the
weapon of prayer. The ignorance to the power / ability of this weapon is
constantly rendering many with the church powerless.
The earnest prayer of a righteous
person has great power and wonderful results.
Elijah was as human as we are, and
yet when he prayed earnestly that no rain would fall, none fell for the next
three and a half years!
James.5:16. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.
Elias was a man subject to like
passions as we are, and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain: and it
rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months.

a must for the saints:
Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of
God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to
Stand therefore, having your loins
girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
And your feet shod with the
preparation of the gospel of peace;
Above all, taking the shield of
faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
And take the helmet of salvation,
and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
Praying always with all prayer and
supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and
supplication for all saints;
mentioned earlier, it’s very easy to get discourage and give up due to what you’re
facing; but it’s imperative that you understand that giving up is not one of
your options. God (Yahweh) didn’t bring you this far to leave you, He’s

concerning Jeremiah so is He saying concerning you.
For I know the thoughts that I think toward
you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected
of good cheer my brothers / my sisters: It’s Not Over Until God Says So !
