Victory Battlecry - A confession of faith in Christ!

"But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye steadfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labor is not in vain in the Lord" (1Cor. 15:57-58).

I come not to bring peace, but a sword." - Jesus Christ

The victory is already ours because of the cross of Calvary. It is a complete and total victory over sin, satan, evil in all its forms, and death. Paul wrote, "Death is swallowed up in victory" (1Cor. 15:54).

We appropriate this supernatural victory through faith. The Bible says, "For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith. Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the son of God?" (1John 5:4-5).

On the cross Jesus cried, "It is finish!" and this secured an eternal victory for all of those who place their faith in Him. Through faith, self-discipline, and the power of the Holy Spirit we are enabled to tap into vast resources of moral and spiritual power which make us victors, not victims. Allelujah!

The Second Coming of Christ

"Looking for that Blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of
the great God and our Savior Jesus Christ" (Titus 2:13).

Jesus is coming again! He promises, "And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also" (John 14:3). Paul explains the second coming of Christ as follows: "For the Lord Himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the Archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the cloud, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord" (1Thess. 4:16-17).

Paul then concludes, "Wherefore comfort one another with these words" (1Thess. 4:18). There is great comfort to be found in the knowledge of the Second Coming of our Lord and Savior. The truth of His promise to return keeps our hearts from being troubled and afraid (John 4:1).

Where is the promise of His coming? The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some men count slackness, but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night... " (2Pet. 3:4, 8-10).

Jesus said, "Surely I come quickly" (Rev. 22:20). "Even so, come, Lord Jesus" (Rev. 22:20).

What a glorious day it will be when Jesus shall come again.I look forward to that blessed day when I will put on incorruption and immortality, because death has been swallowed up in victory. Praise the Lord!

Paul Cox's Prayer to Remove the Roots of Rebellion

Prayer to Remove the Roots of Rebellion

Here is the prayer we constructed:

In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, I repent for all generational idolatry.

I repent for all personal and generational rebellion, stubbornness, and disobedience that has contributed to witchcraft in my life and in my generational line.

I repent for all envy and jealousy of the mind, physical bodies, and personalities of others.

I repent for any worship of myself and any need of personal recognition.

I repent for all envy and jealousy of the spiritual giftings and capacities of others.

I repent for myself and for those in my generational line who did not guard the gates of the spiritual and physical senses.

I repent for choosing my will above the will of the Lord.

I choose to owe no one anything, but to love one another.

I choose to cast off the work of darkness and to put on the armor of Light, the Lord Jesus Christ, and to make no provision for the flesh, to fulfill its lust.

I choose to walk only according to the grace and anointing God has given to me.

I choose to walk in unity with my brothers and sisters in the Lord.

I choose to follow Christ, living a life of love, preferring others above myself.

I choose to yield and surrender my personal rights so that I might serve the Lord wholeheartedly.

I choose to be devoted to one another in brotherly love and to honor one another above myself.

I will never be lacking in zeal, but will keep my spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. I will be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, and faithful in prayer.

I will share with God's people who are in need. I will practice hospitality. I will bless those who persecute me. I will rejoice with those who rejoice and will mourn with those who mourn. I will live in harmony with other Believers.

I will not be proud, but I will associate with people of low position. I will not be conceited. I will not repay evil for evil. I will have regard for the good things in sight of all men. I will live at peace with everyone. I will not take revenge on others.

Lord, please now remove all ungodly spiritual beings and devices that have been empowered by my idolatry, rebellion, and jealousy and the idolatry, rebellion and jealousy of my ancestors.

Lord, will You please disconnect me from any evil network and I break all ungodly ties between the abode of the enemy and myself.

Lord, please remove the generational tree of the knowledge of good and evil.

Lord, please break the cords of death that entangle me, the torrents of destruction that overwhelm me, the cords of Sheol that are coiled around me, and the snares of death that confront me.

Lord, I now take back any godly anointing, energy, authority, finances, and health given away and perverted because of my sin and my ancestors' sin.

Lord, will You set me as a seal upon Your heart, and as a seal upon Your arm, for Your Love is stronger than death.

I declare that You Lord Jesus Christ is the head and He is Lord over all.

This prayer is based on Genesis 2, Deuteronomy 4:15-20, I Samuel 15:23, Psalm 18, Ezekiel 8:1-6, John 17, Romans 12:3,10-19, Romans 13, Ephesians 1:22, Ephesians 4:12-13.

Paul Cox Speaks on Rebellion and Witchcraft

Rebellion and Witchcraft

In a remarkable passage, Samuel expands our understanding of witchcraft. Saul once again was disobedient to the will of the Lord. Because Saul has not obeyed the Lord in eliminating all of the sheep, Samuel has some words to say to Saul!

"Has the LORD as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the LORD? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to heed than the fat of rams. For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft..."—1 Samuel 15:22-23

So, witchcraft is the same as rebellion. But how? Rebellion is "opposition to one in authority." The Hebrew word mâriy is derived from the word marah meaning "to be contentious, be rebellious, be refractory, be disobedient towards, be rebellious against."

The word is most used in terms of "rebellion" against the ways commanded by God. What, then, is the connection between witchcraft and rebellion? Over the years, I have read several explanations of why witchcraft is the same as rebellion. Frankly, the explanations, although interesting, have not been satisfying. The Lord was about to show us something new.

Further revelation was to come. After showing many different schools what the Lord had shown me, I thought, "If indeed someone is stealing anointing from us and shifting it into witchcraft, then who is that "someone?" As I felt under the flow of witchcraft, I was surprised that indeed I did feel something. As I felt the spiritual outline of that entity, I realized it was a "spiritual force."

Spiritual forces are mentioned in Ephesians 6:12: "For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places."

It is my belief that these beings are in some way "inter dimensional" because Scripture tells us that they war in "heavenly places." I sense these fallen "spiritual forces" pervert the anointing of the Lord, corrupting that anointing and changing it into witchcraft.

A full day of discussion had taken place. The prayer was written and we prayed the prayer. I waited to see a difference, but there was no change. Had we missed the mark? As I went to bed that night, the ringing was still continuing. Could I live like this? As I escaped my sleep the next morning, I was aware there was something different. There was no more ringing. The prayer had worked!

Paul Cox Speaks on Divination


By definition, witchcraft or divination is the art or practice that seeks to foresee or foretell future events or discover hidden knowledge by the interpretation of "omens" or by the aid of supernatural powers. The word is first used in the Bible in Genesis 44:5, when Joseph sent his steward to retrieve the cup Joseph had planted in Benjamin's sack. The steward is told to say to Joseph's brothers that the cup was used for divination.

The New Bible Dictionary defines this Biblical word "divination" as the attempt to discern events that are distant in time or space, and that consequently cannot be perceived by normal means. It is possible that the word can have a "righteous" sense as one might speak of a prophet having clairvoyant gifts without thereby approving all forms of clairvoyance. Except in these rare contexts, divination and witchcraft are strictly condemned by Scripture.

Magic and divination are an attempt to find out information from superhuman powers. More precisely, magic is used to compel a god to do what one wishes and divination is used to secure information about issues and events that are not readily known to the person who practices this art. The word magic is derived from the word "magus," a priestly class in ancient Persia. In magic, it is believed that one can get in touch with the "gods" and these "gods" can be influenced to bring benefit to the magician or diviner.

Divination can be divided into two categories, internal and mechanical. The internal would consist of a trance like state of a shaman. The mechanical nature of witchcraft would include material objects like such as sand, entrails of a sacrifice, or tea-leaves. The Bible mentions several types of witchcraft or divination.

• Rhabdomancy—Sticks or arrows thrown into the air and omens were deduced from their position when they fell. Hosea 4:12, Ezekiel 21:21.

• Hepatoscopy—Examination of the liver or other entrails of a sacrifice were supposed to give guidance. Probably shapes and markings were classified, and the priest interpreted them. Ezekiel. 21:21.

• Teraphim—Images of dead ancestors were used to predict the future, which is a form of spiritualism. 1 Samuel 15:23, Ezekiel 21:21; Zechariah 10:2.

• Necromancy—Necromancy is getting information from the dead. Deuteronomy 18:11, Leviticus 19:31, 20:6, 1 Samuel 28:8, 2 Kings 21:6, 1 Chronicles 10:13, and Isaiah 8:19–20.

• Astrology—Astrology was making predictions based on the position of the sun, moon, and planets in relation to the zodiac and to the positions to one another.

• Hydromancy—Hydromancy was seeing "divination" pictures in water. Genesis 44:5, 15

An Interview by Paul Bradshaw with Rick Warren

A friend sent this to me...and I just loved it, so I thought I would pass it along. Make sure you read all of it...It did me more good than anything has in a long time! Enjoy...

This is my sermon for the day! Let it minister to you in person, and when it has; endeavor to share with others! You will enjoy the new insights that Rick Warren has, with his wife now having cancer and him having 'wealth' from the book sales.

This is an absolutely incredible short interview with Rick Warren, 'Purpose Driven Life ' author and pastor of Saddleback Church in California.

In the interview by Paul Bradshaw with Rick Warren, Rick said:
People ask me, What is the purpose of life? And I respond: In a nutshell, life is preparation for eternity. We were not made to last forever, and God wants us to be with Him in Heaven.

One day my heart is going to stop, and that will be the end of my body-- but not the end of me. I may live 60 to 100 years on earth, but I am going to spend trillions of years in eternity. This is the warm-up act - the dress rehearsal. God wants us to practice on earth what we will do forever in eternity... We were made by God and for God, and until you figure that out, life isn't going to make sense.

Life is a series of problems:
Either you are in one now, you're just coming out of one, or you're getting ready to go into another one. The reason for this is that God is more interested in your character than your comfort; God is more interested in making your life holy than He is in making your life happy.

We can be reasonably happy here on earth, but that's not the goal of life. The goal is to grow in character, in Christ likeness.

This past year has been the greatest year of my life but also the toughest, with my wife, Kay, getting cancer. I used to think that life was hills and valleys - you go through a dark time, then you go to the mountaintop, back and forth.

I don't believe that anymore. Rather than life being hills and valleys, I believe that it's kind of like two rails on a railroad track, and at all times you have something good and something bad in your life..

No matter how good things are in your life, there is always something bad that needs to be worked on. And no matter how bad things are in your life, there is always something good you can thank God for.

You can focus on your purposes, or you can focus on your problems:
If you focus on your problems, you're going into self-centeredness, which is my problem, my issues, my pain.' But one of the easiest ways to get rid of pain is to get your focus off yourself and onto God and others.

We discovered quickly that in spite of the prayers of hundreds of thousands of people, God was not going to heal Kay or make it easy for her- It has been very difficult for her, and yet God has strengthened her character, given her a ministry of helping other people, given her a testimony, drawn her closer to Him and to people.

You have to learn to deal with both the good and the bad of life. Actually, sometimes learning to deal with the good is harder. For instance, this past year, all of a sudden, when the book sold 15 million copies, it made me instantly very wealthy.

It also brought a lot of notoriety that I had never had to deal with before. I don't think God gives you money or notoriety for your own ego or for you to live a life of ease.

So I began to ask God what He wanted me to do with this money, notoriety and influence. He gave me two different passages that helped me decide what to do, II Corinthians 9 and Psalm 72.

  • First, in spite of all the money coming in, we would not change our lifestyle one bit.. We made no major purchases.
  • Second, about midway through last year, I stopped taking a salary from the church.
  • Third, we set up foundations to fund an initiative we call The Peace Plan to plant churches, equip leaders, assist the poor, care for the sick, and educate the next generation.
  • Fourth, I added up all that the church had paid me in the 24 years since I started the church, and I gave it all back. It was liberating to be able to serve God for free.
We need to ask ourselves:
Am I going to live for possessions? Popularity? Am I going to be driven by pressures? Guilt? Bitterness? Materialism? Or am I going to be driven by God's purposes (for my life)?

When I get up in the morning, I sit on the side of my bed and say, God, if I don't get anything else done today, I want to know You more and love You better. God didn't put me on earth just to fulfill a to-do list. He's more interested in what I am than what I do.

That's why we're called human beings, not human doings.

  • Happy moments, PRAISE GOD.
  • Difficult moments, SEEK GOD.
  • Quiet moments, WORSHIP GOD.
  • Painful moments, TRUST GOD.
  • Every moment, THANK GOD..

I'm A Friend of God

Who may worship in your sanctuary, LORD? Who may enter your presence on your holy hill?

Those who lead blameless lives and do what is right, speaking the truth from sincere hearts. Those who refuse to gossip or harm their neighbors or speak evil of their friends (Ps.15:1-3).

When we were utterly helpless, Christ came at just the right time and died for us sinners.

Now, most people would not be willing to die for an upright person, though someone might perhaps be willing to die for a person who is especially good.

But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners. And since we have been made right in God's sight by the blood of Christ, he will certainly save us from God's condemnation.

For since our friendship with God was restored by the death of his Son while we were still his enemies, we will certainly be saved through the life of his Son.

So now we can rejoice in our wonderful new relationship with God because our Lord Jesus Christ has made us friends of God.

Yes, Adam's one sin brings condemnation for everyone, but Christ's one act of righteousness brings a right relationship with God and new life for everyone.

Since, one person disobeyed God, many became sinners. Then because of this one man Jesus obeyed God, many have been made righteous (Rom. 5:18-19). Therefore, we're the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus.

Interview With God

People often ask the question, "What will heaven be like." Although the Bible discusses heaven, it is not possible to understand the full nature of heaven from a human perspective.

Since heaven is where God lives, it must contain more physical and temporal dimensions than those found in this physical universe that God created.

We cannot imagine, nor can we experience in our current bodies, what these extra dimensions might be like. Even so, we are given enough information in the Holy Bible to understand many of the things that will be different in heaven compared to our lives today.

Here are some images from space and words of inspiration that comes in a message of faith for everyone.

Trusting that your were richly blessed.

He's Able

One of God’s names tells us that He is able to do whatever He pleases, a name He first revealed to Abraham. He had promised to make Abraham the father of a great nation, and naturally Abraham needed a son in order for that promise to come true. He thought Hagar’s child, Ishmael, was to be that son, but God told him that Sarah would bear a son named Isaac through whom the promise would be fulfilled. The whole idea was preposterous.

Abraham was ninety nine years old and Sarah was ninety, and humanly speaking there was no possible way they could have a son. But God helped them to believe it by the way He introduced Himself that day. “Now when Abram was ninety nine years old, the LORD appeared to Abram and said to him, ‘I am God Almighty; Walk before Me, and be blameless’” (Genesis 17:1).

El Shaddai is God Almighty, the God who can do anything He wants to do, even rejuvenate dead wombs and give babies to couples in their nineties! He is almighty, all-powerful. That name is used forty-seven more times in the Old Testament and never of anyone but God. It has a New Testament equivalent, used ten times, which means literally “to hold all things in one’s power.”

Scripture is punctuated with references to God’s omnipotence from beginning to end. He is the Lord strong and mighty (Psalm 24:8). Power belongs to Him (Psalm 62:11). “Great is our Lord, and abundant in strength” (Psalm 147:5). He wants us to know Him as the God who is able to do anything. He' able!

"Now I commit you to God and to the word of his grace which can build you up and give you an inheritance among all those who are sanctified" (Acts 20:32).

The Bible

The Bible consists of sixty-six books that were written over a period of more than a thousand years by many different men who were guided in their thinking and writing by the Holy Spirit (Peter 1:21).

The Bible contains the mind of God, the state of man, the way of Salvation, the doom of Sinners, and the happiness of Believers.

Its doctrines are holy, its precepts are binding, its histories are true, and its decisions are immutable.
  • Read it to be wise,
  • Believe it to be safe, and
  • Practice it to be holy.
It contains light to direct you, food to support you, and comfort to cheer you. It is the traveler's Map, the pilgrim's Staff, the pilot's Compass, the soldier's Sword, and the Christian's Charter. Here Paradise is restored, Heaven opened, and the gates of hell disclosed.

Christ is its grand subject, our good the design, and the glory of God its end.

It should fill:
  • The Memory,
  • Rule the Heart, and
  • Guide the Feet.

Read it slowly, frequently, and prayerfully. It is a mine of wealth, a paradise of glory, and a river of pleasure.

It is given you in life, will be opened at the judgment, and be remembered forever. It involves the highest responsibility, will reward the greatest labor, and will condemn all who trifle with its sacred contents.

Molded Into The Image Of Jesus

As a believer, we're destined to be molded into the image of Jesus, to grow in spirit until we look just like Him. God's supernatural power began that process the moment we were born again. We grow up spiritually just like we grow up physically.

What can we do to speed up the process?
We can spend more time pursuing the things of the spirit than we spend pursuing the things of the flesh. We can decide to be more dedicated to the word of God and to fellowship with Him.

We can commit to be willing to pull aside from the busy things of life and get alone with Him, so that He can guide us, teach us and share His likeness with us. If we spend enough time with Him, He is definitely going to rub off on us! His ways will become our ways.

As we make ourselves available to Him by praying in the spirit; worshipping and loving Him, we'll be drawn to people who love His word and live it.

Before we know it, we'll find our character becoming more like His. We'll begin to think like He does, and talk like He does and even act like He does. His image will begin to shine forth in us! Now behold the Lamb of God and receive Him as your Lord and Savior!

An Attitude of Heart - Lord make me over

"The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; a broken and a contrite heart,
O God, thou wilt not despise" (Ps. 51:17).

The Bible says, "Pride goeth before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall. Better it is to be of an humble spirit with the lowly, than to divide the spoil with the proud" (Prov. 16:18-19). The opposite of pride is humility, and humility is the attitude of heart that comes when we fully recognize our brokenness before God.

"But He giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble. Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you... Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He shall lift you up" (James 4:6-7, 10).

There is no doubt about it, we need the Lord, now more than ever. Ask Him to create in you a clean heart, and renew a steadfast spirit within you. Resulting in the restoration of the Joy of your salvation. Now, go ahead and do it, He is waiting.

Lord, I know that without you I can do nothing, but through you I can do all things, because you strengthen me. Therefore, I humble myself before your greatness, and I totally submit my life to you. As I draw near to you, I know you are drawing near to me. Thank you Lord, Amen.

Joy Full

Jesus wants us to have Joy, period; and that our Joy may be full. But why is Joy important in the believer's life? Nehemiah 8:10 tell us, "Do not grieve, for the Joy of the Lord is your strength!"

Therefore, Joy produces strength, strength to overcome life's challenges. When we were new born babes in Christ, we were given power to be an overcomer and have victory in our lives. Did you know that we're called to fight the good fight of faith. Yes, but we cannot fight if we have lost our hope and Joy.

Perhaps you are tired of fighting for your marriage and ready to throw in the towel. Maybe you're sick and tired of being sick and tired. Maybe you're experiencing one financial crisis after another. Maybe you're having trouble with your children, and wondering if they're ever going to straighten up and cease being rebellious.

Jesus has a word for us. If we ask anything in the name of Jesus, He promises He will bring it to pass in our lives. Jesus said, "And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the son. If ye shall ask anything in my name, I will do it" (John 14:13-15).

Jesus said if we ask anything in His name "I will do it." Yes, He will do it. We have His Word of Guarantee. We can take it to the bank and cash it. It is good for any amount. Jesus also said, "Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, He will give it you... that your joy may be full" (John 16:23-24).

The name of Jesus speaks to us of the power and authority of God. It assures us that He will fulfill His promises to us. When Jesus told us to pray using His name, He was giving us the power of Attorney to represent Him and all He possesses.

At the gate called beautiful, Peter said to the crippled beggar, "Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk" (Acts 3:6). Immediately, the man leaped up and began to walk and went into the Temple praising God. You see, Peter used "the name that is above every name" and he got result. We too can use it and get the desired result because it's our privilege to do so.

We are representing Him when we are praying in His name, and so we must be sure that our prayers are in agreement with Him and His word. That kind of praying brings results because it is revealed by the promises of His word.

The Apostle John wrote, "And this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, he heareth us: And if we know that He hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of Him" (1John 5:14-15).

When we possess Joy the Father is glorified in the Son. Therefore, go ahead and rejoice in the Lord, that your Joy might be full.

Great and Precious Promises

The word of God promises us all good things if we'll believe and obey the Lord. It promises us healing, prosperity, guidance, revival, and victory.

Additionally, God promises us peace, health, wisdom, truth, happiness, deliverance, protection, eternal life, abundant life, freedom, and many other blessings, all documented in His word the Bible.

The Apostle Peter wrote, "Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust" (2Pet. 1:4).

The exceeding great and precious promises of God have already been given to us, and they enable us to partake of God's nature and to escape the corruption of the world.

However, obtaining the promises of God, sometimes requires patience, as the word points out, "For ye have need of patience, that after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise" (Heb. 10:36-37).

In order to obtain the promises of God:

  • We must put God First (Matt. 6:33)
  • We must be Obedient to the Lord's commandments (Deut. 11:22-23)
  • We need Faith (Heb.11:6)
  • We must be Strong and Courageous (Josh. 1:7)
  • We must be Active (Heb. 6:12)

Prayer is the avenue that takes us from the Problem to the Promise, from Fear to Faith, and from Despair to Hope. "Therefore it is of faith, that it might be by grace..." (Rom. 4:16).

I believe that believers of the Lord Jesus Christ are the most blessed people to ever walked the face of the earth. We're the happiest people who ever lived, and the most victorious people in the world. It's because of the rich and precious promises of God. Promises that God wants us to claim as our own through Faith and Prayer.

"For all the promises of God in Him are yea, and in Him Amen,
unto the glory of God by us. (2Cor. 1:20)

All These Blessings

Many believers today are suffering one financial defeat after another. So let's go into the word of God today and get the issue of prosperity and poverty straight. Let's find out, once and for all, which is the blessing and which is the curse.

You can find the answer to that question in Deuteronomy 28. What God describes in verses 1 through 14 is the blessing or prosperity. In verses 15 through 31, God describes poverty as a curse. However, the curse is meant to destroy, not to teach people a lesson.

Regardless of how intense the lack is, the nature of poverty remains the same. It is, and will always be, a curse. Satan has gone to great lengths to convince God's people that poverty is a blessing in disguise. But poverty isn't from God, it's something the devil contrived.

If you're a born again child of God, you no longer have to live under the curse because you've been redeemed!

Success Guaranteed

Who do you turn to when you need help, when you need an important answer to an important question?

Do you ask God first?

So many believers fail to do that. They'll stand around wringing their hands and talking to each other all day. They'll inquire of their pastor. They'll inquire of their friends. They'll inquire of their husbands or wives.

But do they inquire of God? No.

Don't make that mistake, follow the example of King David who inquired of God, saying "Shall I go up against the Philistines?" (1 Chron. 14).

When you have a need seek the Lord through the word and in prayer and ask Him what the solution is. Go to the Lord and find out exactly what He wants you to do. Don't decide your course of action and then ask God to bless your plans.

Go to Him and say, "Lord, what are your plans?" His plans are already blessed. If you follow them and His words, your success is guaranteed (Joshua 1:8).

Our God Supply Needs

God will get it to you. “My God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus” (Phil. 4:19).

Whatever you need today God is your source, He is your supplier.

Whether you need a new car or a place to live, He has it to give it to you. All you have to do is access it by faith. You don’t have to figure out in your natural mind how He’s going to get it to you. All you have to do is believe and receive.

You need to remember that when you have a need in your life. You have no business reasoning in your own mind how God is going to get something to you. God is not limited by your natural reasoning.

His hand is not waxed short. He has ways that you’ve never even considered (Ephesians 3:20). He knows how to get it to you because it’s His business and He is your source. He dropped quail on the Israelites that lasted for 30 days, right there in the camp.

God might just drop a house next door to you. He might leave a brand new car in your driveway one night. He can. He’s God! He can do it however He wants to. So stop reasoning and start believing.

Release your faith and receive. God will get it to you!
