  2. Thank you for the ‘shout-out’. 🙂 I am so enjoying these videos that you have done, am getting so much out of them and want to thank you for doing them. Today’s struck me because, as you know, one of the things I have struggled with is letting go of the anger that I have held against those that have hurt me and to allow God to fill me with His love for these people. It has been difficult to do that when I encounter the consequences of their actions on an almost daily basis; but praise God, He has led me through that process and filled me with His love and has helped me forgive. But it was a choice that I had to make within myself to let go of the anger and to allow God to deal with me and it.

    So that would be the one thing that I would add to your thoughts. God has given us the love and faith and joy through His Spirit, but it is up to us whether we yield to those things or whether we insist on holding on to the anger.

    I am looking forward to the next video. Blessings for your day.

    • That is so powerful! The truth is that when we hold onto those things that are of the flesh we are in essence saying “I am not going to use my spiritual weapons.” We can pray and say we are putting on the armor but all our prayers mean nothing if we are holding on to things that keep us from actually using the weapons of our warfare. I remember as I walked through two very dark times in my life there were whole months where I lived defeated because I could not put away the anger I had against the people who had hurt me. They were times when sin took hold and I struggled just to maintain my faith in Jesus because of the rage which came from my pain. It was not until I began praying for the blessing of the people who had hurt me and until I started a thanksgiving list that the anger started to go away and I started to regain victory.

  3. So good, Pastor J and Drusilla! How important to know that we have all that we need for spiritual warfare . . . And how important to know that if we hang on to anger, we won’t be able to use our spiritual weapons. As I think about what you said . . .how we have everything we need . . .it is truths like this that I need to get down inside me. Thank you so much!

    • Pastor J and Debbie, There seems to be so many threads of thoughts and lessons that God is tying together through these blogs – making me wonder just how short the time is and whether all these things have been accelerated to teach us and strengthen us and prepare us for what is to come. That and the fact that I am finding so many others that are struggling with the same things I have struggled with – drawing us closer together as a body while we uplift and encourage and help others as God has helped us. What a merciful and loving God we have that would use this avenue of communication to advance His plan and strengthen those of us that feel isolated because of the pain and anger and fear that we fight against! I praise God for each one of my fellow bloggers that have lifted and encouraged and supported me throughout my years here. To God be the glory!

    • This truth of the finished work of the cross is …I think…one of the most neglected teachings in Christianity. If we can just truly come to grips with the fact that we have all we need for life and godliness through Christ we will be rradically transformed!
