Taking Every Thought Captive

Road

In order for us to live in freedom and become the women we are to become, we need to receive God’s love even in our lowest places.

Spiritual warfare is designed to separate you from the love of God. Its goal is to keep you from living in the freedom that Jesus has purchased for you. Satan whispers to us when we have failed or sinned or are feeling horrid that we are nothing and no one. He is a…

Later, the Lord sent this message to King Ahaz: 11 “Ask the Lord your God for a sign of confirmation, Ahaz. Make it as difficult as you want—as high as heaven or as deep as the place of the dead.[e]”

The people who walk in darkness
    will see a great light.
For those who live in a land of deep darkness,
    a light will shine.

For a child is born to us,
    a son is given to us.
The government will rest on his shoulders.

Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
    Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

His government and its peace
    will never end.
He will rule with…

Do You Not Know That Your Body Is a Temple of the Holy Spirit?

Do You Not Know That Your Body Is a Temple of the Holy Spirit?

IMG_3485[1]

Each person knows that now his body is the temple of God: “Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God?” (1 Cor. 6:19). Indeed it is. “Don’t you know that you yourselves are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit lives in you?” (1 Cor. 3:16). Okay—each of us is now the temple of God. So where, then, is the Holy of Holies?

The Assault on Our Desire

The Assault on Our Desire

LightPath

The battle of desire is not something that just takes place within us or even between us. It is also taking place against us, all the time.

But our desire is not hard-wired to God.” So we look to others to teach us…
