Matthew 6:9-14: The Lord's Prayer... ♥ I Say This Prayer Every Morning While Relaxing Drinking My Coffee At Home Before I Start My Day.
9 Jesus said, “This, then, is how you should pray:Our Father who art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. 10 Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. 11 Give us this day our daily bread. 12 And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. 13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen. ♥

Be strong and courageous [God says to Joshua], for you shall cause this people to inherit the land that I swore to their fathers to give them. Only be strong and very courageous, being careful to do according to all the law that Moses my servant commanded you.”
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.
No man shall be able to stand before you all the days of your life. [That’s a promise.] Just as I was with Moses, so I will be with you. [That’s a promise.] I will not leave you or forsake you. [That’s a promise.]
The LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth does not become weary or tired. . . . He gives strength to the weary, and to him who lacks might He increases power. . . . Those who wait for the LORD will gain new strength . . . they will run and not get tired, they will walk and not become weary. (verses 28-31, NASB).
Be not disspirited [disspirited, discouraged, disheartened] as though your spiritual enemies could never be destroyed. You are able to overcome them. Not in your own strength. The weakest of those enemies would be too much for you in your own strength. But you can and shall overcome them through the blood of the Lamb.”Do not ask how shall I dispossess them for they are greater and mightier than I? But go to the Strong for strength. Wait humbly upon God and the mighty God of Jacob will surely come to the rescue and you shall sing of the victory through His grace.

I refuse to be anyone's victim. I AM a victor because of the shed blood of Jesus Christ, my Lord and Savior. You really need to know deep down in your spirit who you are in Christ, and hold up your shield of faith to withstand the fiery darts of the wicked. When you find yourself surrounded by darkness, you need to hold on to God's hand tightly, don't let Him go, and God will guard you on all sides and guide you out.
Yes, there were times when I broke down, and every time God whispered to my spirit, "I'm here. Release it to me." When I did release it to God, literally, on my knees, raised my hands to Heaven, and told Jesus to please take this yoke from me, I can't do this on my own. Within 24 hours, I felt a huge weight lift off of my spirit and was functioning on auto-pilot to get things done that needed to get done. I am so grateful this period is behind me now and most importantly, that God and all of Heaven never left my side and saw me through every step of the way.
But I'll tell you one thing, experiencing what I have and watching God and all of heaven in action has drawn me even closer to God. I know, that I know, that I know, that NO WEAPON formed against me shall prosper, NOT EVEN black magic or demonic spirits operating in other people that have been sent to disturb my peace and cause me harm. And what the devil meant for evil in my life, God has turned every situation around for my good. I am still standing, still sane, much stronger and wiser than before, with joy in my heart, a smile on my face, and new skills under my belt that I had to learn because of my demonic stalkers, that I may have never learned otherwise.
We don't know what we have within us until we are tested by the fiery furnace of life. God is the refiner, the purifier to help us grow and become all that we are meant to be. God refines us through painful trials brought on by the enemy. My faith was tested to its very core. But I knew deep down in my spirit, that God didn't bring me this far to fail. I knew that God was in control. I knew that God said, "I will never leave you, nor forsake you, I will deliver you out of your trouble." So like a palm tree that can withstand storms because of its deep roots, I deeply rooted, grounded, secured my spiritual well being in the Holy Spirit that kept me nourished while I was being battered by this storm, without whom I would not have made it through this nightmare.
So, I thank all my enemies, I forgive them all, and I hand them over to God to deal with them as He pleases. The battle is not mine.

Oh and I forgot to mention, the Chumash Indian reservation is only 15 minutes out of town and they have built a humongous casino if that's your cup of tea. But just so you know in advance, they do not serve alcohol in the casino because of the windy roads going through the Santa Ynez valley. I just now double checked my info in case this changed since my last visit and found out that a 3-day public hearing has been set for May 22, 2012 at Solvang City Hall for the Chumash tribe's liquor license request. So there is a possibility this may change mid-year. We'll see. Please click HERE to read more about Chumash liquor license hearing from the Lompoc Record.
UPDATE 11/02/2014: Indianz.com [2/6/2013] The Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Indians must comply with 18 conditions for its casino liquor license.
The license allows the tribe to to sell liquor in more areas at the Chumash Casino Hotel and Resort except on the gaming floor, in the cafe and during certain events in the showroom. The California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control also barred happy hours, imposed time restraints and required appropriate training for staff that handle liquor sales. Opponents are expected to file appeals.

God is TRULY AMAZING! God is the Universe. The Universe lives and breathes in each and every one of us! We are carbon-based lifeforms, carbon units. The Universe expands and contracts. The Universe breathes in and breathes out. If the Universe is made up of Energy, then God is energy and the Source of ALL LIVING things. Connect to His Infinite POWER outlet and allow God to live and breathe LIFE and JOY into you. Jesus (Yahshua) IS the CONDUIT to our Source (God). Jesus (Yahshua) IS the LIVING BREATHING WORD of God, represented by the Holy Spirit who is the BREATH of God that comes to LIVE INSIDE of you. God wants you to TRUST and BELIEVE in His WORD. Yahshua is the Creator God Himself - an omnipresent Spirit Being who manifested Himself as a Human Being. When you receive Jesus (Yahshua) into your HEART, you are welcoming unspeakable joy into your life. Your creative LIGHT will emanate from the core of your being. Choose LIFE! Set yourself FREE from the barrage of limitations and condemnation that comes from this world. Re-connect to your Source and discover who God says you are and His will for your life! God sets the standards for living NOT man. Get to know Him. God wants to embrace you right where you are and love's you as you are. You are a child of the Most High God. God LOVES YOU sooooooo very much! ♥ Say YES, God I need you. Surrendering your life to God is the most freeing experience.
