Verse 14 is pretty clear about what to do with your enemies, bless them. Bless them and leave them in God’s hands my friends. We are also to rejoice with those that rejoice (not sit back in jealousy) and weep with those that weep (have compassion). And from yesterday, PRAY! Praying is so very important! 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“14 Bless them which persecute you: bless, and curse not. 15 Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep.” ~ Romans 12:14-15

Yesterday while I was studying on the Armor of God, I was visited by two doves. I began to notice one was larger than the other and the smaller was following after it. This morning the enemy baited me right into an attack. I sat here on my bed with tears steaming down my face, completely unable to move. I wasn’t alone. I wasn’t unprepared, in fact my Poppa had prepared me all week! I looked up “fervent” and it means “having or displaying a passionate intensity.” Just before this attack, I had prayed a fervent prayer. “Patient in tribulation.” I looked up “tribulation” and it means “ – cause of great trouble or suffering.” Finally, “continuing instant in prayer.” I looked up “instant” and it means “happening or coming immediately.” That last part is KEY! In my Bible study this week, I learned prayer is a critical part to the armor of God. In reading these verses the Lord showed me prayer is also a critical part in unlocking the key to the peace to these verses! We can be fervent in Spirit and patient in tribulation but still experience unrest without continued prayer to both unlock the peace and bring about victory! Our spirit is going to wear down and our patience is going to run thin without prayer that sustains and unlocks. God also showed me I froze and was unable to breathe today because my prayer was delayed and not instant. Come on somebody! Look at God!!! Thank You Poppa for Your Word and revelation today! I pray you gleaned from it as much as I did. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“10 [Be] kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another; 11 Not slothful in business; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord; 12 Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer; 13 Distributing to the necessity of saints; given to hospitality.” ~ Romans 12:10-13

The world seems to have flipped this Scripture around. So much evil is loved while so much good is despised in it’s eyes. When I looked up dissimulation I found it means “concealment of ones thoughts, feelings, or character; pretense.” I found that very interesting in connection to this verse. Boldly stand and love that which is right even in a world that might reject you, they rejected Christ too so you are in good company. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“Let love be without dissimulation. Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good.” ~ Romans 12:9

My heart smiled as I read this verse this morning. Our Father always knows what we need and just when we need it, but it never ceases to amaze me just how much this holds true. My heart was discouraged when I went to bed last night. The enemy is so skilled at who he uses to attack us, but this morning my Father so faithful and so loving once again reminded me of who I am in Him. The key to that is IN Him. I found my identity through Christ and I will not waiver on that now. He promises us so much as His children and I encourage you to get in His Word and embrace those promises. Live fully FOR Him and IN Him. I am so far from perfect, BUT I serve a perfect God who pours out His grace and mercy over me. I’m all in for Him and coming for all He has for me. I want to fulfill the calling He has on my life and I’m fully embracing and standing on the promises He’s given me! Child of God, you should too! He wants so much more for us!! 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

We used to sing a song that contained this verse when I was little and I loved it, still one of my favorites. The Lord makes the wise the simple, lean into Him my friends and He will reveal things to you that you never imagined possible! ~ #f8ithgal

“The law of the LORD [is] perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD [is] sure, making wise the simple.” ~ Psalm 19:7

The gifts and callings of God are irrevocable. If you have fallen, get back up! He hasn’t stopped calling you because you made a mistake. He knew every single mistake you were going to make before He ever called you and He had already figured that into the plan for your life. You can’t outrun Him, you can’t mess up too big for Him to fix, and you can’t make Him stop loving you so stop trying. Get back up and and say Father where do we go from here? He’s waiting and He’s listening! 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“For the gifts and calling of God [are] without repentance.” ~ Romans 11:29

Those prayers you pray around the ones you love today may be what keeps them safe when they walk out the door tomorrow. The Bible tells us to pray without ceasing, that is nonstop. That may seem a little radical, but those prayers are serious when it comes to the people we love. I am constantly praying over the man I love. He hydroplaned today and he said as the signs he split in half were coming towards him he had no idea how they went over the car and not into the windshield. I said, I do. It is the power of God, the prayer of a praying woman, and the angels that I put around you every single morning! Friends, God hears and honors those prayers! My first reaction from His call was to give God praise. My second, as it sunk in, was I need to pray even more! I have absolutely no doubt it was my prayers and the angels I had commissioned around him that kept him safe. Ladies, cover your men in prayer. Men, cover your ladies in prayer. There is nothing more important in your relationship than that prayer life! Your relationship with God is essential! This afternoon I was reminded of it’s importance on a different level and I am so thankful I was a praying woman in his life. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“Pray without ceasing.” ~ 1 Thessalonians 5:17

Be still daughter. That is what I heard my Father whisper as my heart cried out to Him this morning. I go before you, why do you worry so? Ahhhh. I could not help but smile. My head is constantly worrying about every little thing and God already had those details worked out! Here I am thinking of backup plans and this and that and He’s already commissioned the angels to go before me. Silly girl, God’s got this and you! What are worrying about, trying to figure out that you too need to leave in your Father’s hands? Be still today and know God will be exalted above all and when He does, He has you! 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“Be still, and know that I [am] God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.” ~ Psalm 46:10
