    What is a Woman? And why it Matters to Christians

    In the US Senate Judiciary Committee hearings for Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, she was asked, “Can you provide a definition for the word woman?” This accomplished female was unable to provide a definition. How can you defend women’s rights in the Supreme Court of the United States, if you’re not certain what a woman is? Being a woman is not a feeling; it’s God’s gift. The Lord defines us by the truth of who we are, not by the confusion we feel.

    The Battle in Your Head, Guard Your Mind Against Enemy Attack

    Your mind is like an airport. Thoughts are flying in from all directions and heading out. You may have a thought from a church meeting inside of you and suddenly off it goes, as an enemy thought lands. We need to allow the Holy Spirit to become our border force. He will teach us to send thoughts packing. He will remind us, “No entry,” for that thought. He will stop the negative, self-doubt, criticism, unbelief and backbiting thoughts from planting in our heart. The Holy Spirit is God in you. With your permission and obedience, He’ll send Satan’s thoughts out of your mind and prepare you for God’s thoughts to…

    Satanic Lies and How to Defeat them in the Mind

    Everything Satan says is a lie; this is why Jesus refused to get into a debate with the father of lies. The devil will never speak truth to you, only deception. We must not entertain Satan. We must not draw a chair to the table of our heart and engage him in open debate. There is nothing to talk about. In Christ, I am a child of God. I am blessed and I am a new creation in Christ.

    There’s Nothing Wrong with You: The Power to Think Better

    There is nothing wrong with you. God created you in His image. There is no one like you on earth; not one with the same thoughts, ideas, feelings, experience, creativity and purpose. God chose you before the earth existed for a specific plan only you can accomplish. You are His workmanship. I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made – Psalm 139:14 There may be something wrong with your thinking and choices, called sin, but you are more than your thoughts. God loves you, as you. However, there is a battle going on in your mind. Satan is bombarding you with thoughts designed to limit, hinder and…
