“KEEP GOING HOME TO HIM AND BE STRONG”


Keep going home to Him and be strong. Let’s go to:

Psalms 44:9 “But Thou hast cast off, and put us to shame; and goest not forth with our armies.” (KJV)

cast off (Strong’s 2186) to push aside, reject, forsake or fail;
put (Strong’s 5414) to give, put, make, perform or yield;
shame (Strong’s 3637) to round, insult or taunt;
goest forth (Strong’s 3318) to go, bring out, escape, begotten, lead out, be risen, utter (the word),
shoot forth (as seed);
hosts (Strong’s 6635) a mass of persons organized for war (an army), campaign for hardship or
worship; (from Strong’s 6633) to mass (an army or servants).

When you go away from Him the enemy can close in on you bringing negativity and doubt into your life. It is you that goes from dear God and His cover and blessings are soon gone. So that is why it is so important to keep that open communication going with Him each day. So wake up each day thanking Him for all that He is doing in your life and how He is helping you see more about Him so you can give of yourself to your loved ones and anyone He sends your way. Remember you need Him always because He loves you and there is an ongoing war going on between dear God and Satan. Since you stand for God, you are especially someone sought out and is gone after in every way possible.

The Word is your strength and your line to dear God so that you see what His plan is, know what is pleasing to Him and how you can be helpful to Him. That is how you love Him. Yes, He likes to hear from you and talking with Him is great, but your actions speak louder than words. Just like with a dear friend, if the friend says they care about you and will do this or that and never follows through, you begin to doubt that friendship. That is how it is with dear God. Show Him you love Him and respect Him by being with Him. When you love your family, friends and other people that He sends to you help out, that is how you really love Him by lifting others up to Him. So as here in:

Ephesians 6:11 “Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.”
Ephesians 6:17 “And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God;”
Ephesians 6:18 “Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all preseverance and supplication for all saints.” (KJV)

Keep the Word so you can stand against the devil every morning you wake up keeping that attitude of faith and confidence in dear God. Put on the cover of knowing that the Son, Jesus the Christ, defeated death or devil, over your head protecting your mind so that you are able to get things done. Let the sword of the Lord cut you back into to dear God and not so focused on you and your own life, but rather He and His plan that all can come to Him for salvation as here in:

II Peter 3:9 “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.” (KJV)

Dear God has lots of patience for all His children to come to Him to repentance through His Son, Jesus the Christ. So plant seeds and do whatever it is to help others out lifting them up to dear God with your leadership, confidence, faith, hope, spending time and whatever to bring them closer to Him. Pray for them and ask that His Will be done. Just continue doing the work, and dear God will water those seeds you plant so be patient and keep it up!

Finally, keep going home to Him and be strong. Your strength comes from dear God Who is sitting on the throne. Your job will be to bring His enemies to His footstool as here in:

Psalms 110:1 “[A Psalm of David] The LORD said unto my Lord, “Sit Thou at My right hand, Until I make Thine enemies Thy footstool.” (KJV)

So do it! He gives you that confidence, wisdom, strength and all you need through His Spirit as here in:

Hebrews 10:12 “But this Man, after He had offered one sacrifice of sins for ever, sat down, on the right hand of God;”
Hebrews 10:13 “From henceforth expecting till His enemies be made His footstool.”
Hebrews 10:14 “For by one offering He hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified.”
Hebrews 10:15 “ [Whereof] the Holy Ghost also is a witness to us: for after that He had said before,”
Hebrews 10:16 “This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the LORD; I will put My laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them;”
Hebrews 10:17 “And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more.” (KJV)

So by Jesus accomplishing defeating death, or the devil, He is that sacrifice of sins so be sanctified in Him and let the Word, His Word, perfect you so that you can be helpful to dear God. Continually fight each day with the renewed strength and hope in Him. Allow His Spirit to comfort you and protect you when you go out there each day in this battle for He Who you love so much. Know His laws and His promises to you so that you have confidence in dear God and share this truth so that you through the Holy Spirit make His enemies His footstool for that day to come. He loves you and knows you can do it because you are doing it for your family, friends, loved ones and for all who believe on Him, that One, that gave His only Son to accomplish this for His children that He loves that believe on Him. That is the key so be strong in Him and take part in this fight and love Him. He loves you for being tough. You can do it!

Thanks dear God for Your Love and Your Strength,
