“A very real enemy has been strategizing and scheming against you, assaulting you, coming after your emotions, your mind, your man, your child, your future.”
“Despite what we may or may not understand about prayer, God has deliberately chosen this particular vehicle as the one that drives His activity in people’s lives. It’s what He allows us to use to cooperate and partner with Him in the fulfilling of His will.”
“Prayer is the portal that brings the power of heaven down to earth. It is kryptonite to the enemy and to all his ploys against you.”
“At the end of the day, the enemy is going to be sorry he ever messed with you. You’re about to become his worst nightmare a million times over. He thought he could wear you down, sure that after a while you’d give up without much of a fight. Well, just wait till he encounters the fight of God’s Spirit in you.”
“You write out your prayers so you “won’t forget” . . .won’t forget who the real enemy is, won’t forget the One in whom your hope lies, won’t forget your real need and dependencies are and later, won’t forget the record of how God responds.”
“We pray because our own solutions don’t work and because prayer deploys, activates, and fortifies us against the attacks of the enemy. We pray because we’re serious about taking back the ground he has sought to take from us.”
“Satan is nothing but a copycat, trying desperately to convince you he’s more powerful than he actually is.“
“Satan warps your perspective on the current events in your life until reality appears much worse and more desperate than it truly is.”
“The Bible may be an old Book, but God’s Spirit makes it fresh, new, and alive for us.” “We are at spiritual war. So we need spiritual weapons.” “Satan wants you miserable and exhausted and joyless and undone.” “The past was in the past. It doesn’t have permission to touch you anymore.” “Prayers that have power come from a person in pursuit of righteous living.” “God calls you to purity because He wants your heart protected and at rest, inhospitable to the devil and his intentions.” “Satan’s ploy is to make you believe your core value as a person is tied to how much work you do, how much activity you can accomplish, how much stuff you can accumulate, how much business you can generate.” “Sabbath is meant to communicate this: You don’t need to keep pushing, rushing, gathering, hustling. You’ve already received approval from the only One whose approval really matters. He has stamped His value on you, and that is enough.”
“Pressure is often a mask for idolatry.”
“When our lives are packed to the brim with things that squeeze God to the periphery, it’s a sure sign we’ve replaced our devotion to God with a love for something else. The pressure to perform often means you’ve made an idol of your reputation.”
“The primary purpose of Sabbath margins—of saying no, when appropriate—is to diminish our devotion to all other suitors and crystallize our allegiance to God.”
“Unmanageable, incessant pressure is not just another nagging problem in your average day. It’s an attack against your full devotion to God as your one and only Lord.”
“Be ready to see your eyes opened as you close them in prayer. One day soon a whole new kind of woman is going to be emerging from that prayer closet. A free one. A rested one. A contented one.”
“Unforgiveness is a strategic “design,” craftily implemented by your enemy to “outwit” you, to cripple your effectiveness in prayer and your power to stand against him victoriously.
“Genuine freedom and renewed fervency are waiting for you on the other side of forgiveness.”
“Don’t expect to experience freedom, peace, or rest from your anger until you forgive.”
“The enemy works overtime to dismantle anything resembling peace.”
“You can’t play games with God and expect to win.”
“Sometimes your greatest message is the mess of your life.”
“Make sure your life writes a story worth reading. Your story starts with God.”
“It is an esteemed opportunity to participate in kingdom purposes.”
““I want my life to radiate what happens when God has a person’s heart at His full control, when every event or circumstance is simply another avenue to know Him better and show forth His glory.”
““Every decision you need to make, every task you need to accomplish, every relationship you need to navigate, every element of daily life you need to traverse, God has already perfectly matched up with an equivalent-to-overflowing supply of His grace. ”
