Matthew 17:20, my favorite verse. "... If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you."

Are You Spiritually Prepared?

Life is full of daily choices. Each day we choose to put on the armor of God . . . or not.

Imagine waking up in a war zone. You've been trained how to use weaponry, how to camouflage yourself with your environment and how to signal for help. Yet, as you open your eyes to the blast of gunfire and reach for your rifle, you find the ammunition chamber empty. In your panic you jump to a stance and realize you've been stripped of your uniform (you've been left your skivvies). You realize your need for help and reach for your radio but the batteries are dead.

Who's to blame?

You are. Because you chose not to refill your weapon, the chamber's now empty. Because you chose  to go to bed in comfort rather than be prepared, you haven't a uniform. Because you chose not to stock extra batteries, no one can come to your rescue.

Think about it.

What does the Bible say about prayer, fasting, knowing how to give an answer? If you don't know, ask a fellow believer, join a Bible study group, attend church . . . and last but certainly not least, read your Bible!
