Constant Perseverance...

Be diligent to stand firm when all hell is coming against you...when it seems that the earth rumbles around you, don't give up!  When it seems that every demon in hell is surrounding you attempting to stop  you in your tracks, stand firm and rebuke the enemy of your soul by the Spirit of the living Lord! There are going to be days when you want to crawl back under the covers and sleep the world away! The enemy will not give up easily....Praise God that He has to flee, go as far a way as you are determined to submit to God, and resist the devil.

You may wonder how you submit to God?  You put yourself under the word and really listen to what it has to say. I like listening to the audio bible. There are several online and even some have Iphone apps. I encourage you to merge your will to God's will by reading and listening to the word on a daily basis, Surrendering to the Holy Spirit to fill you up with His power to be all He can be in our lives.

Submit means to yield, surrender to put oneself under authority or power.   The word of God is the one complete and final say of governing authority over our life as a Spirit-filled believer. To put ourselves under it is to enable the power of God to do a work in our mind and heart.   It is giving over our all over to the maker of Heaven and earth. 

Satan knows that he does not stand a chance once we really submit to God's will. He is off and running because the enemy of our soul knows we mean business when we submit to a higher authority in Christ.   He doesn't have a standing chance against the power of the word of God in a submitted believer.

 We have to remain continually vigilant and aware of what's going on around  us.  We are not prone to be deceived, but when we go fall into deception we will not be following the path that God has prepared for us. Get on the path that God has prepared for you this day.

What are you feeding today, the flesh or the spirit?  Please do not let the flesh dominate your life,  but crucify your flesh to the cross of Christ. Submit to God and allow His Spirit to live through you this day!!!!
