Tim Greenwood - Editor

From The Editor ... by Tim Greenwood

When was the last time you checked your spiritual armor to see if everything was still in place and working properly as God intended? Take time to do this now; this could very well mean your life one day!

Ephesians 6:11-18 tells us to put on the whole armor of God, so that we may be able to stand against the tricks that the devil throws at us.  Our fight is  not against people, but against Satan's hierarchy of demons. Are you ready and prepared for battle? I can assure you that the demons are.
 
 So be prepared. We don't have to fight on our own; Jesus gave us His tried and tested armor that works all of the time. When using His armor, then we will be able to stand strong in power when that evil day comes.

  We are to be clothed in truth so that we can't be deceived. God says that His Word is truth.  How much time do you spend with God reading His Word, getting His truth into your heart? We must also proudly wear the breastplate of righteousness. Knowing that you are right with God protects your heart in all situations.

We also must walk confidently knowing "Whose we are"by wearing the shoes of the  gospel of peace. As born again believers, we have a covenant of peace.  Do you walk in it? You should. By doing so will tear down many strongholds of worry, anxiety, fear and depression in your life.

Above all, taking the shield of faith. God says that in order to please Him we must walk in faith.
 Are there any weak areas in your life that you need to build faith in? Using this shield will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.  This says it all!

The helmet of salvation is powerful.  Do you proudly show you're a Christian? Does your life portray Christ in you, or do you try to fit in with the crowd?  How often do you tell others about the gospel of Jesus in a loving way? Also, take the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. This is the spoken Word of God coming out from your mouth. This is a double-edged sword, spoken from God's mouth into His Word, and then spoken from the reservoir of your heart through your own mouth.

Now pray always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit. Speaking and fellowshipping with God should be a normal, continual part of your day.
 
So now's the perfect time. Look at yourself from head to toe and make sure the armor of God is on and in place, and that you truly know how to properly use each piece. Then you can go anywhere with confidence in God's power.


How To Live A Life of Victory

... by Marcia Greenwood

Have you ever thought about what it takes to have a happy, successful, fulfilled life?  Why do some people seem to have a life filled with victories, and other people's lives are "hit and miss" so much of the time?

God desires for all of His children to be blessed.  He cares very much about our quality of life. He is our Father, our Provider and Protector.  He truly doesn't want us to have any cares or worries.

He wants our lives stress-free and full of peace. When we enter into a close, loving fellowship with Him then He draws us close to Him. We are protected, safe and loved.

In Matthew 6:33, we are told to "Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you."  What things? Some of the things are: clothing, food, a place to live, and so much more.

While Jesus was on earth, He said that He and His Father were one. Jesus spoke nothing except what the Father said!   Think about it for a moment what do you speak about your life?
 
Do you speak what the Bible says about yourself, about your livelihood, about your finances, about your family, and the list can go on and on. Or, do you speak the situation you are in at the time? We need to have the same kind of fellowship with God and trust Him at all times, following Jesus' example. We truly need to live as Psalm 91 says -"He that dwells in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty."

So many people don't take the time to get to know God intimately.

Oh, many will go to church once a week, thinking they are being obedient, they listen to a sermon and sing songs of worship; but once they are out of the church doors they do not pay attention to how the Bible instructs them to live.

Proverbs 4:2-22 says to pay attention to my words (the Bible) do not let them out of your sight, keep them within your heart, for they are life to those that find them, and health or medicine to a man's whole  body. 

God's Words, His truth are life to us; they will direct our path and keep us safe. Maybe it's time for you to let go of directing your own life and follow the instructions God have given you through the Bible.

Joshua 1:8 tells us to speak the Word, meditate on the Words of the Bible, so that we will then do what God says to do; for then our life will be prosperous, and we will have good success. This is how victory will come about in every area of our lives.

Take just one area in a person's life - a very big part - in the area of financial success. Too many people are actually afraid to "let go" of their money and tithe. Actually, when a person tithes, or gives 10% of his or her income into the Kingdom of God, this is how God gives back to them.  God's Master plan works - all of the time!

God doesn't think of tithing or giving offerings as "letting go", but as sowing seed.  Just as a person who plants a garden doesn't think of "letting go" or losing the seed, but they plant it into good ground to reap a better harvest of what was planted.   I personally know God's plan works; I have been tithing since 11th grade, and God continues to bless me!

Trust God, take Him at His word, He will never lie to you.  He fulfills all of His promises. Jesus came to this earth so we can live an abundant, victorious life (John 10:10). So, if you want to be blessed and have a victorious life then you need to seek God's answers to your questions, and then do what the word says to do.  Jesus makes it easy for us.  He says his burden is easy and His yoke is light.
