Dressed for Success: Helmet of Salvation

Helmet of Salvation Now days the relying on the natural is the norm. But in God's world, it is the super natural that is the normal. When we start living from GOD’S perspective instead of our own we start entering in the super natural and this is where people start seeing God alive in their lives. While in the bank, I noticed a teller had their head down on the desk, as if taking nap.  I greeted her and ask, "Are you okay?" Instantly, she turned her head to look behind her to see if the other employee that looked like a manager had noticed. "My head hurts, it hurts all the time." I offer...

Dressed for Success: The Shield of Faith

The Shield of Faith Words Matter and Have an Impact My mother in law called. She asked to speak with my husband. “He is on motorcycle trip,” came my reply. She recalled his motorcycle accident and responded: “Has he not gotten over that yet?” In this moment I went wrong. I received her words, “I agree and I don’t think it is safe to ride a motor cycle.” Hours later Ken came home and half an hour we argued about motorcycles. I did not build up my husband. I received words from another and responded by what was in my heart. Nelson Mandela said: “It is never my custom to use words lightly...

Dressed for Success: The Shoes of Peace

The Shoes of Peace Roman soldier shoes studded with hobnails provided stability on the battlefield. Hobnail-studded helped them to stand firm. Stability in what one believes and stand for is key in battle readiness. Confidence and peace provide sure-footed stability and assurance. One technique the enemy uses against us is fear. Fear for circumstances and other people removes our trust in GOD. Uncertainty. It takes away our trust in God. Instability. It weakens the soldier within. I recall a couple of years ago when I started to spend time in His presence. I clearly heard the Holy Spiri...

Dressed For Succes: Righteousness

Breastplate of Righteousness Stand in Your Forgiveness “Stand firm therefore, having girded your loins with truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness” - Ephesians 6:14 When I committed my life to Jesus, a huge load fell off my shoulders. The freedom and joy came so sweet and pure. I was forgiven. I recall my mother noticing and saying. “How come you are so happy all the time?” I am forgiven and I am free and stand in that freedom! When I recommitted my life to Jesus, again I had an incredible joy and freedom.  Again, the joy, peace and freedom felt amazing. To pu...

Dressed for Success: Truth

Open, honest communication saves marriages. Out of nowhere a couple of nights ago, my husband brought up a private issue we had not discussed since we remarried in 1996. Our avoidance offended Ken. Even though I felt I had the right at the time, the past remained stagnant and in place. Like a fish tank in need of cleaning, our avoidance further dirtied the water. Judgement, criticism, and anger put a curse on our marriage. Satan knew it. He used it against us time and time again. He took advantage of this elephant in the room for over 20 years. Ken’s honesty opened my eyes.  I prayed t...

Dressed for Success: Fear

One time, after finishing my quiet time, I heard the word "fear" whispered in my ear. I knew it was the Holy Spirit. My first reaction was: "What do you mean by fear?" But, the more I contemplated on the meaning of fear, it became clear. Holy Spirit showed me that I feared life and people more than GOD.   Who do you need to forgive? Let us help by praying with you.
