Take it Back!
As I sit outside watching the storm brew, I realize that my view has suddenly become clouded. The houses that I clearly saw a few minutes prior, now look like shadows of their former selves.
Life is filled with storms, distractions, and diversions but what we must understand is that our God never changes! His promises still stand even when all hell is breaking loose against you and your vision has become clouded by the storms. Do you want to find your bearings when things seem unsteady? Go to the Word of God! It's a firm foundation of immovable truth. We are surrounded by lies and at times earthly truths bring doubt and intimidation...but God!!! Nothing takes Him by surprise and there is no situation too difficult for Him to handle! Kingdom truth always takes precedence over earthly truth!! There's no competition!!!
Fear comes when we see with our own limited understanding, focus on the problem and believe that the darkness is shrouding us and leading to our destruction. You must understand that even if it surrounds you, the light is within you! The power to defeat the enemy lives inside of you and you have the power and the authority to conquer every enemy, cast down every imagination, win every battle, destroy strongholds and annihilate fear!!!
A child of God that's filled with Holy Spirit, knows, believes and practices the Word, uses it in their battle plan, understands the power and authority they've been given, and has an intimate relationship with Jesus, is a force to be reckoned with! There's so much that was provided that many have yet to tap into...Jesus said we would do greater things than He did... it's time we start! Too much territory has been taken from us! Let's take it back for the Glory of God and advancement of His Kingdom!!!

2 Corinthians 10:3-5 (KJV) For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;
John 14:12 (KJV) Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.
