@Lucia have you heard of this book? I purchased it:
I was inspired by @Lucia ’s post on deliverance and warfare prayers. This popped up in my YouTube feed so I thought I’d share it here:
Haven’t going to look it up though thanks
Pigs in the Parlor by Frank Hammond
Pigs in the Parlor: A Practical Guide to Deliverance
@Belle Du Jour
I don’t know if you’ve checked these books out or not but after the initial videos these books have helped tremendously along with prayer, adoration weekly and the sacraments. I have literally and spiritually seen the difference in my life in ALL areas. Don’t sleep on these. These books are also available on kindle kindle app.
Glad this thread is coming to life
Galatians 6:7-9 (KJV)
7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
8 For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.
9 And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.
Isaiah 40:27-31 (KJV)
27 Why sayest thou, O Jacob, and speakest, O Israel, My way is hid from the Lord, and my judgment is passed over from my God?
28 Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding.
29 He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength.
30 Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall:
31 But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
Hebrews 12:1-2 (KJV)
12 Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,
2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
John 3:30 (KJV)
30 He must increase, but I must decrease.
Keep reading your Bible daily.
Keep obeying the word of the Lord.
Keep listening to sound, Biblical teachings.
Keep drawing closer to Christ in every area of life.
Keep putting Him first.
Keep honouring God with your whole self.
Keep pouring out your heart to Him and letting Him fill it with Himself.
Keep letting Him purge you.
Keep avoiding what is evil and doing what is good.
When you get tired, keep going to Him for more strength.
Let Christ live through you.
Ignore those who come to you with ungodly 'advice'. Even if it looks like it works for them, everyone will reap what they sow, whether they sow to the flesh or to the Spirit. We may not see the fruit now, but it will come, and for some people, the fruit will come when it's too late for them to change the seed.
Never mind that everyone else is getting promoted at work, never mind that others are dating 3 men at a time and you're still single (you want quality, not quantity), never mind that your lousy ex is engaged. Look unto Jesus, the author and finisher of your faith. Let him be your all in all.
I hope this encourages someone. God help and bless us all.
Yes this Amen, speak truth. I’ve gotten a lot of unsolicited advice on how I should do things from people who are chasing shakin and waiting on or got the ring, the wedding the house but I know God has a plan.
Ladies, be vigilant: with algorithms & cookies nowadays, the enemy can fabricate love interests, who are simply not the one. They come in the form of friendship requests on social media, stay prayed up!
Although this isn't specific to Christian women, I do think many Christian women fall into the chronically single trap. I am posting this with love because I don't believe God desires his daughters to languish away in singledom: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/chronically-single/id1372248881?i=1000429917688
Thanks @Maracujá, that was a good read. These definitely stood out for me:
"Finding God's Perfect Love
There is no other love than the love of God, the Almighty. He is the epitome of the definition of love. You see, our Heavenly Father loved us so much that He came down in human flesh to bring us the precious and holy gift of salvation through His only Begotten Son, Jesus Christ. Who can love us more than He who has created us?"
"You see, you will never find perfect love in people (they will always fall short in meeting the standard) or in material possessions (they can't love you back). But you will find it in knowing God.
Implementing these simple tips in your everyday life will shift your focus from carnality and towards God. He is the ultimate answer to all of life's problems, big and small. So, when you are tempted to search for love, just look above."
Carnality is ruling the world and Christians are getting caught up in and distracted by it. I pray that God redirects us to his perfect and unfailing love, and gives us the grace to receive it from Him, amen.
Thanks again for posting! God bless.
Happy birthday @Maracujá! May God bless you. I hope you have (had) a wonderful day!
