Everyday Sense of the Spirit
Has someone ever said to you, “That’s a crazy decision and it doesn’t make sense?!” I’ve had someone say that to me more than once. But when a decision is made in prayer with trusted counsel I can reply, “I know it seems crazy but I looked to God in my heart and not my head for the answer.” Okay saying that might get a weird look but look at 1 Corinthians 2:14, “The non-spiritual man does not accept into his heart the teachings of the Spirit of God, for they are silly to him; and he is incapable of knowing them.”
Satan will send lies to our minds and we can choose to believe them OR ask God, “Am I hearing from You in my heart or the crazy thoughts in my head?” The non-spiritual man lives by feelings and sight but faith has nothing to do with it. With Christ in your heart you live by faith and through the Spirit begin to understand the truth He speaks to your heart...everyday.

Everyday Hope (It Gets Better)
When God speaks He is full of love and truth, but when the devil speaks he speaks lies and offers counterfeit love. Life is already full of challenges and listening to the enemy’s lies makes it a zillion times harder.
On darker days remember this, “The enemy knows your name, but calls you by your sin. Jesus knows your sin, but calls you by your name.” In the Book of Revelation you can read of God’s power and authority and also read how the devil, the prince of this world is continually bringing accusations against us. BUT when you accept the sacrifice of Christ on the cross ALL your sins are forgiven and His grace is continual. You have the hope of heaven where you’ll be fully restored with continued purpose. Being “born again” is a term I don’t hear much anymore, but it means being made new with an implant of hope. It’s a place the enemy will no longer have access to us …everyday.
