Zephaniah 3:17 reminds us that God is musical and He rejoices and sings over you. - -
The LORD your God in the midst of you is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over you with joy; he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing.

The Bible has Weapons of Mass Instruction!
This is a Chapter from my book
"Rescue the Stories Book Three"
Be A Fighter
I am reminded of a time, when our family and our business were
both under attack from Satan!Wow, are
you serious?Yes, our new equipment
would break down, and a new replacement would also tear up.
This happened more than two or three times.Accidents were happening on the job, and
trucks would not start or run properly.Employees were sick and did not show up for work.We lost bids that should have been ours.A string of events left us puzzled as to,
“Why” was all this was happening repeatedly?
I suppose a “Light bulb,” turned on, and it was like a
revelation that the devil was behind all this, and it was he that was causing
these accidents.A short conference
between my husband and myself, and we decided on a war plan.
Each morning before my husband left for work, we would
join hands, and speak the Word of God. “No weapon formed against me shall
prosper.”“The steps (and business) of a
righteous man are ordered of the Lord.”
Next we would take our authority against Satan, and demand
that he take his hands off God’s property.Last step was to thank the Lord Jesus for watching over our family and
our business and for his Angels that we asked him to be charged to watch over
The change was almost immediate.However we continued our strategy and did not
let up.We were determined to “Hold the
God’s word can be
used as a weapon against evil that threatens us.It is as a sword that cuts deep when used
effectively. If words have power, it
calls to reason that God’s Word would be an explosion when it flows out from
our mouth.Speaking out scripture that
has come alive to you will set you free in given situations.Declaring that you are who the Bible says you
are, will give you grace and boldness to walk uprightly.
Early on, I learned that my own righteousness is as filthy
rags, BUT because of Jesus, “I am the righteousness of God IN Christ.”My concept of myself as a sinner, changed
when I understood, that I am NOT a sinner saved by grace, but by the grace of
Jesus, I WAS a sinner, but now I AM a Saint IN Christ.
We cannot continue to depend on the prayers of our
mothers, grandmother, pastors, and our church members.It is time for you and me to begin to stand
up and grow up in the Lord.Daily reading
God’s Word until the scriptures become a part of us is as food to our
spirit.Speaking the Word to ourselves
brings maturity and growth to our lives.
Growing up spiritually helps us discern truth from error
regarding spiritual issues.Babies cannot
discern good from evil.Babies can also
become selfish, and because they rely on everyone else to take care of them,
they cannot encourage or equip others in their faith.
Lastly but probably most important is, having your own
personal Pentecost which is vital.
This is the secret to Power with God and your
communication with the Holy Spirit which will enable you to mature into the
grown up mature believer that God expects you to be.
