Most people throw in the towel even before they step foot in the ring, because the appearance of the opposition has caused their mind to convince them that there is no way that they can possibly win. So that even before they begin to battle their enemy, they have defeated themselves outside the place of battle. Their mind has placed in their heart a sense of defeat, and my brother this cannot be. We have not been given a spirit of fear but one of power, love, and a sound mind. Defeat is not an option to the believer, but a weapon of the enemy that he uses subtly, yet effectively. We have been given the authority to tread upon the serpent, so let us use it, openly and effectively.

There are a lot of people who fear the future simply because the present for them does not look promising. The economy is failing, bills are piling faster than the bank account, and it seems like everything has gone up in pricing, from the gas pump to the grocery store. However, we as the saints have to understand that this is the time where our faith is our strongest. God said that He would never leave us nor forsake us. In other words, God will provide. We merely have to exercise our faith, for faith without works is dead.
