Power up! In His Word 8-3-19

Dailies In His Word 9-3-19
 I was thinking today about how we live our lives with ups and downs, and battles and it made me think about the days when my son, who is a YouTube personality who plays games and talks about them ,well, how he plays them actually… When he plays games there is generally a Boss person that he has to ultimately fight. I have watched as he tries to avoid the Boss for the longest time so that he wouldn’t have to fight it until he was ready. It always showed up though, eventually.
It made me think of how we live our lives in Christ. We walk each day gaining ‘gems’ from either the world or the Word. Those from the Word are the ones that are the most powerful weapons against the enemies that come against us as well as the ‘mob Boss’ as I think they are called by my son.
Sure the little things we can handle ourselves but sometimes we get too self assured and forget that we will inevitably fight the big one. When this happens we just need to remember that God is on our side!
Just as each of the games has a tool that will defeat their bad bosses so God has a way to defeat the issues in our lives. It could be health that drags us down, or maybe it is another person, but either way God can give us a measure of faith or a heart of compassion that will help us deal with the issues in our lives.
God gave us a ‘cheat book’ it’s called our Bible! He gave us a power up option that restores our health and life—it’s called the Holy Spirit. We can find the answers that we seek and get the strength that we need as long as we remember to trust Him, no matter what.
He gives snow like wool; He scatters the frost like ashes;  He casts out His hail like morsels; who can stand before His cold?
He sends out His word and melts them; He causes His wind to blow, and the waters flow. Psalm 147:16-18

What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? Romans 8:31
The enemy can throw at us what he chooses but if God is standing with us, and I know today He is, then no thing, no one, can stand against us. We are powered up with the Holy Spirit and we are filled up with the knowledge of the Word of God. 
Get powered up today my friends! Get filled with the Spirit and stand up against the things that hinder you and get moving forward on the path God has put before you!

What are you battling? Is it self? Is it work? Is it your car? Maybe your battle is the battle to get in the Word at all? Another way to get powered up is in your prayer closet!
Humble yourself in the sight of the Lord and He will lift you up! Pray for strength, guidance, hope, and direction today! Grab hold of that Sword of the Spirit and grow stronger and more powerful in your walk today.
Heavenly Father, help us to dig deeper in Your Word, and to get stronger in prayer that together with You we can defeat the enemy before us, even if its our own selfish nature! In Jesus’ name amen.
