Thankful Tuesday/Brit's Visit/Daniel Study
These are some statements that stuck with me:
*The enemy is after all of the spiritual progress we have ever made taking us all the way back to the place of our biggest stronghold and our greatest despair."
*Babylon in that day was a lot like our culture. We are completely self absorbed, it is all about our self will and the overindulgent choices before us! It's the tyranny of choice.
* We focus on the smart, young, and beautiful. We focus on how together we appear and how beautiful we are.
* God has assigned us to the world and the enemy has assigned the world to us. The question is...which one will win out?
*If your not doing everything you can not to be indoctrinated by the world-you will be!
*You simply have to say "no" to some things, period. Practicing "I can" but "I won't."
*Daniel had to spend his life there, away from home, where he was different.
And the scripture of course:
Psalm 27:4- One thing have I desired and I will I seek.
Colossians 3:1-2- So if you're serious about living this new resurrection life with Christ, act like it. Pursue the things over which Christ presides. Don't shuffle along, eyes to the ground, absorbed with the things right in front of you. Look up, and be alert to what is going on around Christ—that's where the action is. See things from his perspective.
1 Corinthians 6:12-Just because something is technically legal doesn't mean that it's spiritually appropriate. If I went around doing whatever I thought I could get by with, I'd be a slave to my whims.
And this is only the first weeks worth of good stuff!! Can't wait to share more later! Night!!
