There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most.” Hebrews‬ ‭4:16‬ ‭NLT‬‬ Our enemy, with his lies and accusations, will always try to spoil our relationship with God. ‘You’ve messed up again’ ‘God must be so disappointed/angry/upset with you’ ‘If you go to God He will reject you/judge you/condemn you’.

“But let us who live in the light be clearheaded, protected by the armour of faith and love, and wearing as our helmet the confidence of our salvation.” 1 Thessalonians‬ ‭5:8‬ ‭NLT‬‬ Our battles are fought first in the arena of the mind! Every action starts with a thought which becomes a decision. We need to protect our minds as our enemy will target us with lies, half-truths and outright deception and accusation.

“Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus.” 1 Thessalonians‬ ‭5:18‬ ‭NLT‬‬ This can sound a bit odd because not all circumstances are great. How are we expected to be thankful when tragedy strikes or when my world feels like it is falling apart? Well we’re not told to be thankful FOR the circumstances but to be thankful IN them. It is God’s will because thanks stops us being all-consumed by hurt and pain. Thanks is the pathway to peace and helps to......

There will be worries and needs but if we just focus on these we can often stay feeling disturbed. A focus on gratitude changes our perspective and sets our thoughts on the......

And His name does bring me such hope and power whatever my situation, and His church, my family, offers that tangible touch of His love and help as I press in and......
