Joshua 1:9

Like so many of you, we are following all the CDC guidelines addressing this horrible virus. Due to my asthma and the severe attack I had four weeks ago, I have been keeping myself at home, for a week now.

But the last several mornings, I have woke up and for a moment thought all of this was a bad dream. Anyone else? 

This morning the same thing…but the song I woke up to was Natalie Grant’s latest song: “My Weapon”

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4BpirBRWGUs

“Let every lie be silenced
And all depression cease
Let every dark assignment
Bow down at Jesus’ feet

Let every curse be broken
Let every storm be tamed
And all that come against us
Be bound in Jesus’ name

Your presence is my greatest weapon
Pushing back the darkness
Breaking every chain

My worship opens up the heavens
Crushing every stronghold
When I speak Your name
Your presence is my weapon
Your presence is my weapon

Your strength will not be shaken
Your love will not back down
Death has been defeated
What can stop me now

I hold on to what You’ve spoken
You said that I am free
You’ve given me Your promise
You are my victory

Your presence is my greatest weapon
Pushing back the darkness
Breaking every chain

My worship opens up the heavens
Crushing every stronghold
When I speak Your name
Your presence is my weapon
Your presence is my weapon

Your word and a melody
Are making a way for me
You defeat the enemy
This prison is shaking now
And these walls are coming down
Your presence makes me free
I am free

Your presence is my greatest weapon
Pushing back the darkness
Breaking every chain

My worship opens up the heavens
Crushing every stronghold
When I speak Your name
Your presence is my weapon
Your presence is my weapon”

She wrote this song based on Joshua 1:9….the Lord reminded me yet again…He is Here!

Then a bird sang outside our window at the end of the song, in the dark. And stopped as quickly as he began.

Then immediately after, Focus on the Family interviewed Dr. Collins, head of the NIH, and he answered so many questions, prayed for us AND quoted Joshua 1:9

Later today I was on Facebook, and a friend is doing videos every day of scripture readings. Do you want to guess?

You were right.

His Presence is OUR WEAPON!

Unlimited Plan

We are always looking for a deal on our cell phone plans.  An “unlimited plan” is always the goal with a great price.

To obtain the necessary information when you need it with no limits on how much or how often.  To have unlimited access to call or text anyone on your contact list.smartphone-1894723_1280

We already have it.

I am not talking about any of those major cell phone companies, or even the ones that advertise to the “vintage crowd” such as me.

You probably know where I am going with this…God seems to always use the very simple things in life to speak to my heart or confirm what I already know to be true.  He knows that I need that sometimes.

We have “unlimited data” and “unlimited access” to our heavenly Father.  We can talk to Him anytime, night or day.  We are never told how much or how often.  I don’t have to worry about charges, that debt has been paid.

How is that for an “unlimited plan?”

Pretty simple, huh?  Sometimes simple is good.  No complications, no definitions, no arguments…and no customer service reps to have to go through.

There is a song playing right now that has spoken to my heart like none other has in a very long time.  It is pretty simple.  It acknowledges who God is and how we worship HIM.

Here is part of it:

“You are here….Moving in our midst….I worship you…..I worship you

Way maker, miracle worker, promise keeper, light in the darkness..

My God, that is who you are.” (written by Sinach)

Way Maker sung by Mandisa

So as simple as it seems, the unlimited plan we have with our God is amazing.  Don’t complicate it.  

He loves us.  And when we surrender to that love, embrace and believe it….He can love others through us.

It is that simple.

I am going to keep taking advantage of this unlimited plan, how about you?
