“There’s more to come: We continue to shout our praise even when we’re hemmed in with troubles, because we know how troubles can develop passionate patience in us, and how that patience in turn forges the tempered steel of virtue, keeping us alert for whatever God will do next. In alert expectancy such as this, we’re never left feeling shortchanged. Quite the contrary—we can’t round up enough containers to hold everything God generously pours into our lives through the Holy Spirit!” – Romans 5:3-5 MSG

10 Spiritual Battle Quotes for Real Warriors

10 Spiritual Battle Quotes for Real Warriors


  1. “The loyalty of the Soldier is proved in battle.” – Martin Luther

  2. “Spiritual warfare is very real. There is a furious, fierce, and ferocious battle raging in the realm of the spirit between the forces of God and the forces of evil. Warfare happens every day, all the time. Whether you believe it or not, you are in a battlefield. You are in warfare.” – Pedro Okoro

  3. “Our tent is pitched not in a paradise, but on a field of battle.” LE Maxwell

  4. “The nature of the enemy’s warfare in your life is to cause you to become discouraged and to cast away your confidence. Not that you would necessarily discard your salvation, but you could give up your hope of God’s deliverance. The enemy wants to numb you into a coping kind of Christianity that has given up hope of seeing God’s resurrection power.” – Bob Sorge

  5. “Revival is no more a miracle than a crop of wheat. Revival comes from heaven when heroic souls enter the conflict determined to win or die—or if need be, to win and die! “The kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.”” – Charles Finney

  6. “If you are paralyzed by your past, if Satan is destroying your gifts and your calling by his incessant replaying of old tapes, you’re actually being hit by a double whammy. The original damage in the past is one thing – but now you’re letting yourself be hurt and sidetracked again by the memory of what happened… We should not be ignorant of Satan’s devices, and these ugly memories are one of the main weapons in his arsenal.” – Jim Cymbala

  7. “Over the years, I have come to realize that the greatest trap in our life is not success, popularity, or power, but self-rejection. Success, popularity, and power can indeed present a great temptation, but their seductive quality often comes from the way they are part of the much larger temptation to self-rejection. When we have come to believe in the voices that call us worthless and unlovable, then success, popularity, and power are easily perceived as attractive solutions. The real trap, however, is self-rejection. As soon as someone accuses me or criticizes me, as soon as I am rejected, left alone, or abandoned, I find myself thinking, “Well, that proves once again that I am a nobody.” … [My dark side says,] I am no good… I deserve to be pushed aside, forgotten, rejected, and abandoned. Self-rejection is the greatest enemy of the spiritual life because it contradicts the sacred voice that calls us the “Beloved.” Being the Beloved constitutes the core truth of our existence.” – Henry JM Nouwen

  8. “Temptation is not his (Satan’s) strongest weapon. Despair is.” – Dennis Garvin

  9. “I believe that the attacks on your life have much more to do with who you might be in the future than who you have been in the past.” – Lisa Bevere

  10. “God isn’t asking you to fight the devil. He is asking you to simply uphold or sustain the victory won by Jesus at Calvary and enforce his authority over the devil. You’re like the traffic warden who raises his hand and the vehicles stop. They don’t stop because he can physically bring the vehicles to a halt, but because he is representing and upholding the authority of the state.” – Pedro Okoro

 

The Whole Armor of God

” Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.  Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age,against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.  Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness,  and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one.  And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God;  praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints— and for me, that utterance may be given to me, that I may open my mouth boldly to make known the mystery of the gospel,  for which I am an ambassador in chains; that in it I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.”

 – Ephesians 6:10-20 NKJV

Grant to our armed forces that disciplined valor and mutual confidence which insures success in war.

Martin Luther King Quotes

He was a legend – a man who inspired us to dream and be more than we ever thought we could be. He was a Civil Rights Leader, a Christian and a Preacher. According to Wikipedia:

Martin Luther King Jr. (born Michael King Jr., January 15, 1929 – April 4, 1968) was an American Baptist minister and activist who was a leader in the Civil Rights Movement. He is best known for his role in the advancement of civil rights using nonviolent civil disobedience based on his Christian beliefs.

Here is a video I made to honor his memory.  You can hear the beginning of his speech in the song too!

Sons and Daughters

by MATT MAHER, JASON INGRAM, IKE NDOLO

How free is anyone, when some are still in chains
Slaves to brokenness, all this blindness
How free is anyone, when all these doubts remain
In the dead of night, no sign of the lightChild don’t grow weary, soon we will see the sun

All my brothers help each other
All my sisters walk together
No one is a stranger
We’re all sons and daughters

Join hands with everyone, don’t you hear the song we sing
Oh there might be tears, but we are more than our fears
We are marching on, but there’s a price we have to pay
For love means taking on, the weight of what was won

Child don’t grow weary, soon we will see the sun

All my brothers help each other
All my sisters walk together
No one is a stranger
We’re all sons and daughters
Help each other
All my sisters walk together
No one is a stranger
We’re all sons and daughters

We shall overcome, we shall overcome
The victory is won, oh we shall overcome
We shall overcome, we shall overcome
The victory is won, oh we shall overcome

All my brothers help each other
All my sisters walk together
No one is a stranger
We’re all sons and daughters
Help each other
All my sisters walk together
No one is a stranger
We’re all sons and daughters

Trust in the Lord Quotes

​Sometimes I wish I knew all the answers. Why my friend is in the hospital battling a brain disease, why my other friend just buried her brother, why my other friend battles with infirmity. I want to fix it all! And now would be good Lord. 

As I look for answers I turn to Him who knows all – Jesus. Idk why stuff happens sometimes. It makes no logical sense to me. But here I am wondering:

If I had all the answers would I need God? No. 

If I could fix everything with a magic wand would I trust God? No.

If I could do it in my own strength would I even ask God? No.

Trust. Today I am learning to trust God in the in-between places. He said he would heal – I might have to give Him a minute. He said He would protect me from my enemies – I might have to stop and watch and let Him. He said He would work all things together for my good – I might have to trust Him to do it.


God’s Word for You:

  •  But You, O Lord, are a shield for me, My glory and the One who lifts up my head. I cried to the Lord with my voice, And He heard me from His holy hill. Selah I lay down and slept; I awoke, for the Lord sustained me. I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people Who have set themselves against me all around. – Psalm 3:3-6 NKJV
  •  The Lord also will be a refuge for the oppressed, A refuge in times of trouble. And those who know Your name will put their trust in You; For You, Lord, have not forsaken those who seek You. – Psalm 9:9-10 NKJV
  •  “Now, O Lord God, the word which You have spoken concerning Your servant and concerning his house, establish it forever and do as You have said. So let Your name be magnified forever, saying, ‘The Lord of hosts is the God over Israel.’ And let the house of Your servant David be established before You. For You, O Lord of hosts, God of Israel, have revealed this to Your servant, saying, ‘I will build you a house.’ Therefore Your servant has found it in his heart to pray this prayer to You. “And now, O Lord God, You are God, and Your words are true, and You have promised this goodness to Your servant.  Now therefore, let it please You to bless the house of Your servant, that it may continue before You forever; for You, O Lord God, have spoken it, and with Your blessing let the house of Your servant be blessed forever.” – 2 Samuel 7:25-29 NKJV
  •  But You, O Lord, are a shield for me, My glory and the One who lifts up my head. I cried to the Lord with my voice, And He heard me from His holy hill. Selah I lay down and slept;I awoke, for the Lord sustained me. I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people Who have set themselves against me all around. – Psalm 3:3-6 NKJV
  •  I called on the Lord in distress; The Lord answered me and set me in a broad place. The Lord is on my side; I will not fear. What can man do to me? The Lord is for me among those who help me; Therefore I shall see my desire on those who hate me. It is better to trust in the Lord Than to put confidence in man. It is better to trust in the Lord Than to put confidence in princes. – Psalm 118:5-9 NKJV
  • Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him,And He shall direct your paths. – Proverbs 3:5-6 NKJV


    My prayer for you:

    Dear Lord,

    Thank you for being here right now. You know me. You know I want to fix everything for everybody right now. I’m sorry I am so impatient. Thank you for loving me anyway and giving me these opportunities to turn to You and trust You more, in Jesus Name

    FIGHT SONG – by Rachel Platten

    Like a small boat
    On the ocean
    Sending big waves
    Into motion
    Like how a single word
    Can make a heart open
    I might only have one match
    But I can make an explosion

    And all those things I didn’t say
    Wrecking balls inside my brain
    I will scream them loud tonight
    Can you hear my voice this time?

    This is my fight song
    Take back my life song
    Prove I’m alright song
    My power’s turned on
    Starting right now I’ll be strong
    I’ll play my fight song
    And I don’t really care if nobody else believes
    ‘Cause I’ve still got a lot of fight left in me

    Losing friends and I’m chasing sleep
    Everybody’s worried about me
    In too deep
    Say I’m in too deep (in too deep)
    And it’s been two years I miss my home
    But there’s a fire burning in my bones
    Still believe
    Yeah, I still believe

    And all those things I didn’t say
    Wrecking balls inside my brain
    I will scream them loud tonight
    Can you hear my voice this time?

    This is my fight song
    Take back my life song
    Prove I’m alright song
    My power’s turned on
    Starting right now I’ll be strong
    I’ll play my fight song
    And I don’t really care if nobody else believes
    ‘Cause I’ve still got a lot of fight left in me

    A lot of fight left in me

    Like a small boat
    On the ocean
    Sending big waves
    Into motion
    Like how a single word
    Can make a heart open
    I might only have one match
    But I can make an explosion

    This is my fight song
    Take back my life song
    Prove I’m alright song
    My power’s turned on
    Starting right now I’ll be strong (I’ll be strong)
    I’ll play my fight song
    And I don’t really care if nobody else believes
    ‘Cause I’ve still got a lot of fight left in me

    Know I’ve still got a lot of fight left in me

    In Search of Natural Healing

    Have you ever gone to the Dr. and have him give you medicine that made you more sick?  I broke my leg in two places back in 2012.  The D.’s answer? Pain meds.  Yeah, they worked temporarily – but the detox from those was awful.  Then they told me to take Ibuprofen daily. So I did –  4 years later they told me it was killing my liver.  Great.  Now what?  So I started my search – for something natural to help with the aches and pains of getting older.

    My friend let me use her oil on a particularly hard day at work.  I thought, “Right, like this is going to help?”  I put some on my wrists and the fragrance enveloped me. Instantly I was transformed to a peaceful place.  The power of scent – wow! My nerves calmed and the anxiety left.  I was a believer. This past month I signed up as an Independent Distributor for Young’s Living Oils.  I had to learn more and keep trying these for myself.  I wanted something natural, that God made to heal my body instead of drugs.

    What are your thoughts?  Have you ever used essential oils?
