No matter how old you are – you live

Sometimes something comes along just when you need to see it such as this No matter how old you are – you live (Be sure to watch the video it isn’t long).  I don’t know about anyone else, but I don’t believe that there are any such things as accidents.  I think I was meant to see this.  As a matter of fact, I think every single thing and person I meet is by design. While I’m on the subject, I’ll just say this.  I’ve never understood the theory of randomness, never understood how people can believe that there’s order in the universe and on our planet, and yet deny that it’s kept and maintained by someone.  Probably the reason I don’t understand it is because I never got through college, didn’t even get through high school.  All I ever did was read, talk to people older  and wiser than myself, and read my Bible.  Now, I’m not knocking education.  But, I do knock those who try to teach opinion and prejudice over fact.  I knock those who try to pervert truth by making it something that’s inconvenient and a matter of choice and perception over reality and fact.  I knock those who try to take accountability and responsibility out of all institutions and organizations by trying to make people who believe in them seem old-fashioned and out-dated.  And I could go on, but I’ll stop here…..and for those of you who are wondering: Yes, you can be a Christian and still have an opinion, still know the truth, and have the right and authority to speak it.  (Sorry I got wound up)

I just needed to see and know that it’s not too late for me to do something worthwhile with my life and for Christ.  I thank the author of this blog for the video he posted on it.

From “The Word For You Today” by Bruce Christian – Satan is Defeated (2)

Something to take to heart…

SATAN IS DEFEATED (2)

     Satan is a deceiver, but Jesus is a revealer.  So any time you bring Jesus into the situation, Satan is unmasked and his plans for your life are exposed and foiled.  Satan is referred to in Scripture as “darkness,” and Jesus as “light.”  The moment the light moves in, the darkness has to move out.  So your first priority is not to conqueror Satan, but move closer to Jesus; to line up your will and your word with His will and His Word.  Instead of just lying down, taking it, and saying, “I guess there’s nothing I can do about this,” rise up in faith and say, “Satan it is written.”  Faced with a level of temptation none of us will ever be exposed to, that’s what Jesus did to Satan in the wilderness.  And the record reads, “Then the devil left him, and behold, angels came and ministered to Him” (Mt 4:11 NKJV).
Recently we witnessed bankers and brokers take people’s money, lose it, then later come back and say, “Here’s another good plan; invest it.”  But now we know better, don’t we?  We no longer believe an investment is good just because somebody says so.  Don’t miss the spiritual analogy here.  When you know the truth of God’s Word and you use it as a weapon, Satan’s walls crumble, his plans for you come unglued, and his schemes fall apart.  When you understand who you are “in Christ,” you are more than a match for the Devil and he can no longer control your life.
