"Every scripture is God breathed, so that the man of God may be complete and proficient, well-fitted and thoroughly equipped for every good work.”
2 Timothy 3:16-17
This is an admirable photo of our Commander -in-Chief, President Barak Obama that I had the opportunity of seeing for the first time today. I visited Essence Magazine's Obama Watch site and saw this awesome photo! I am sure that I must have caught a glimpse on CNN or the Huffington Post. But I apparently, the Holy Ghost was on assignment and wanted to not only appreciate the photo, but the caption as well, which reads:
"Victory Is Ours
President Obama thanks American troops for their service at Camp Victory during his surprise trip to Baghdad, Iraq, on April 7."
Many things came to mind, first the music which is a standard song in many congregations: Victory is Mine! The photto conveys how valiant our US Military is, not to overlook how poised and confident and appreciative our President is! I recall the many bible verses that capture the theme of our having victory not just in the earthly relm, but most assuredly in Christ Jesus! Today friends I'd like to beleive that we're trusting in God and daily we're acknowledging, yes witnessing God's grace in the depth and the substance of our faith . This insight allows us to soars as live through trails. Sometimes with the smoke and dust still in our clothing , but the furnace and battle fields of life haven't consumed us! Can I get a witness?
"To Him who is able to keep you from stumbling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory..." Jude 1:24
Indeed we are equipped not only for the physical battle, but the spiritual battles that come with diliberate intention to do us in-harm us and prevent us from thinking like victors. Often the biggest battle is waged in our hearts and minds. Overcoming fear ( false evidence appearing real) is a real hurdle in our victorious living marathons! It takes work, oh but it's possible! We must intentionally renounce the enemy-real and imagined! Let's be poised and confident that God is on our side!
I encourage you to fight the good fight, prevail on your faith sojourns, pray for and over each other. Believe that deliverance will come, dreams birthed, and struggles will subside! Healing is evident.
Finally my friends be assured that when you're fatigued and war weary, God will fight our battles and never foresake us. Yes, God has equipped us with everything we need to reach our destinations-yes our destines are in view. Victory belongs to us, its yours and mine! Visit this site and join Dorothy Norwood in declaring our victory! To God be the glory!
From my heart to yours,
