Christmas Season 2009

Hi there. I have started a new job and it's keeping me very busy. So I apologize for not writing. I'm still witnessing as the Lord leads and giving out tracts and praying for people for healing and deliverance... that I will never stop.

So my advice is keep going! I am amazed at how God finds time in my busy day for worship, bible study and prayer if I ask him to help me prioritize my time. He's the best scheduler I know!

We are entering a new season. I can tell as I have been getting a lot of new songs to usher it in. I encourage you to press into more of the Lord's joy and peace this season, as it is a mighty weapon against the enemy.

Also, don't be surprised if the personal warfare you experience is increasing. I have noticed this and a few of my friends have noticed that the amount of personal warfare they are experiencing has increased dramatically. It is becoming more and more important that we live holy lives so that the enemy doesn't have a landing strip or fortress from which to operate in our lives. I have been claiming that, "the pride of my heart will not deceive me" (Obed. 3) and that, "no sin will have dominion over me because I love his word." (Psalm 119:133). In addition I always want a great guard on my mouth. and a wise,discerning heart. God promises wisdom to those humble enough to ask and receive it so I have been asking.

I have been resisting a lot of distracting thoughts and sleepiness whenever I try to spend time alone with the Lord. As I resist the enemy in Jesus name, he must flee, so I have been doing that.(James 4:7) So heads up, the devil knows his time is short and he knows that you are transformed more and more into God's image when you spend time in His presence, so it's no wonder he tries to stop you from worshiping and abiding in Him. (2Cor. 3:18) Do not let the enemy win.

I pray you all have a precious time with Holy Spirit this Christmas season. My He be exalted in our lives, truly.
You are Blessed and Highly Favored in Jesus' Name!
