One thing, I have seen, is people do not know how to apologize. Maybe they repent to God, I don’t know. But I have seen especially here on social media, FB, Twitter, and other networks, is that people, really hide behind their computers.

They say spiteful, mean attacking words, that really do not bring light, or substance. And I don’t know, I have had a few battles myself. Where maybe I brought it on myself.

But when I am wrong. I apologize. I don’t let it pass, without humbling before God, and others. I have sometimes, just wished someone well, Gods blessings, and they took my words, and wanted to argue. This recently happened. And I could not understand it.

But I don’t have to take it either. And if someone cannot show me some respect. I don’t need to further communicate with that person. I forgive. But I don’t put up with that kind of nonsense.

I have enough self respect, dignity, and better sense, then to go in the gutter, with someone, who does not want to be reasonable. Especially when I know in my heart, I do not have an ulterior motive, to make someone look bad.

Its sad, Christians, in particular, who still have the ways of the world, in their actions, but have not seen that Christ called us to love one another, to be humble, and to forgive.  I would think that also includes apologizing.  I just don’t think we see, how this holds us back.  How we cannot grow.  How we can get roots of bitterness. How we open a door to the devil.  Folks, this is spiritual warfare.  We have to see, what are we doing!  

In this election process, I have seen filth come out of some people, that say they are Christians.

And I ask myself, where is the love, that Christ said we would be known by? Oh well. Repenting, asking God to show us who Christ is, and yes apologize.  If you call yourself a Christian, love should be there!  You cannot have it, if you cannot learn to apologize, that means being humble.  That means throwing away that pride.  It means asking God….

My thoughts anyway…..

JOHN 13:35 BY THIS SHALL MEN KNOW THAT YE ARE MY DISCIPLES, IF YE HAVE LOVE ONE TO ANOTHER. KING JAMES.

TEMPTATION THE PITFALL AND DESTRUCTION IT BRINGS ~ IT IS NOT WORTH THE MOMENT OF PLEASURE


I want to share some thoughts, here about temptation…..Some of my experiences, some things, I have learned.  Yes, even some of the hard lessons, I have learned, the hard way, concerning temptation.  And gladly, I can say, the victories, from being delivered from temptation….

Temptation, comes from the devil himself.  The thing with temptation though, in its deception, it sometimes, brings new hope.  An excitement.

It can inspire someone, for a change.  It stimulates, the senses.  One may be anticipating the pleasure of temptation.  But it will turn around, and bite you like a snake, if you submit to it.

So, it can excite someone, and with an illusion, that is false, in that temptation, it brings hope.  I use the word hope here, for lack, of a better word, for now, but it is hope, that will bring the fruit of evil, death, and destruction.  Because the focus, of the temptation, is to destroy, and when people are bored, they are easy prey for temptation.  So they hope….believing the lie.

Temptation is an anticipation, that stimulates, the senses, the flesh.  But goes totally against Gods plan, and protection for us.  It brings spiritual darkness.  Because it is meant to lie.  It is meant to trap someone.  It is meant, to take someone away, from God, and His plan, for that person.

Temptation, is not your friend, it is your enemy.  But one has to recognize this.  You have to know, the difference, or you will fall victim, to the trappings of the devil.

And when it is there, it gives an illusion, of a change, that may be pleasurable, but again, it is from the devil, and is meant to destroy.  YOU, AND EVEN YOUR LOVED ONES!  I don’t think, anyone wants that.  

Unless, one is close to God, they will not see the deceptiveness, of the temptation, and will fall right into the trap.  I have noticed, when temptation, has been in my own life, it has preyed, right into characteristics, that I have not developed, with God.

For example, vanity.  When you are young, one wants to be appreciated, for who they are.  Whether, its your looks. etc.  And so when one, is not confident, within, they grasp, for compliments.  They grasp, for attention.  Attention, needed, searching for gratification, fulfillment, by anyone, can be a temptation.    Because one is looking to people, or things, or anything, to fulfill that need.  That really, only God can fulfill.

I say that, because temptation, and vanity, was quite evident, in my youth.  And well, I won’t say too much more about it, but, in being so insecure, as a woman, etc.  I know, how it can make someone, see, that they “think” they can have power, by the illusion, of even tempting others, with their looks etc.

Society grooms, us all, by the media, by magazines, that beauty, brings power, etc.  It is an illusion, so women, and men, fall prey, to searching for love, or whatever, but not going skin deep, to the true spirit, but by what they see.  An illusion.  Don’t just judge a book by its cover.  Or be tempted, by the cover….

See whats behind that pretty, or beautiful face.  Because some will use their looks to trap you.  Thats their goal, and frankly, the goal of the devil.  So there, they are, being a pawn, in the enemies hands, hurting themselves, and hurting others, by the  illusion, of the power.  By the deceptiveness, of using themselves, to attract someone.  By their own merit, by their own looks, etc.  As a tool, for power.  It is temptation.

Gods word, says, that if we search for Him, He will make a way, to be delivered from the temptation.  And I have found this to be true.  I Corinthians 10:13 There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man:  but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able, but will with the temptation also make a way, to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.  

Do you see that part, where it says, “who will not suffer you.”  Well, if one is deep into the temptation, and fighting it on their own merit, it actually hurts.  Emotionally, and yes, even physically.  It is a struggle, that goes against your peace of mind.  That is intended, to torment you.  To make you suffer.    

When God is in a persons life, he will guard you, with his peace.  And really, having  peace, with God, and oneself, is not only comforting, but the guilt is not there.  

In the temptation, it could be an illusion of love, say for example.  Say, a married man, is “tempted” to have an adulterous affair.  He knows it is wrong, but he is fighting it, in his own merit.  His own self-control.  That hurts him.  Because he is struggling.  He is trying to fight a fight by himself.  

But if God is in the plan, of deliverance, for not being tempted, or getting into temptation, it will not hurt.  God will make a way.   And I will just say this, remember the vows, you have taken with the person, you have married, or the vows, the person, has taken, you are tempted with.  Remember this, whether the marriage, is not going well.  God can change that, if you do not submit to the temptation.    

God will take that person, out of the path, of that person, so the temptation, will not conquer that person, with evil.  Yes, I did say, conquer, because people, do not realize, this is the plan, again, of the enemy.  

Remember, Joseph, from the Bible?  He was a servant, in Pharoahs house, and his wife, wanted to have an adulterous, affair, with him.  Joseph, knew it was wrong, and he was close to God, so what did he do?  He ran, he ran away from her.   She still lied, though, and because she had snatched his covering cloth, she said, he had tried, to have his way with her.  See, how the devil, turned that around still?  

People, have no idea, what kind of traps, they set for themselves, when following temptation.  But, like Joseph, we have to run, from temptation, and run to God.    God did use that, situation, though, to bless Joseph, and to bless the nation of Israel……

I just want to bring it to your attention, more then ever, how important it is for us, to seek God.  To be careful of the traps of temptation.  Prayer, daily prayer, keeps us close to God, and even finding ourselves, making our own decisions, without prayer, can lead us into temptation.  And one may not see it, yet make a grievous mistake.  So, we do have to be EXTREMELY careful, in this matter.

I have heard so many testimonies, of peoples downfall, because of temptations.  People getting sexual diseases, because of temptation.  Losing the love, of their life.  Not being content, with the mate, God has given them.  People, losing jobs, and their freedom, because they reached out, and took, something, that did not belong to them, because the temptation was there.  And ending up, in jail.   Falling into drug use, and even yes, suicide.  Thats the devils plan, he comes to kill, steal, and destroy.  Temptation will do that.   

And so much more, for temptation, is the forum, the devil, uses, and wants you to do, making your situation, wrong.  The excitement, again may be there, the stimulation, etc.  But, if you do, you will bring more then the temptation,  you may very well bring curses, into your life.  

Dear one, bring, it to the obedience of Christ.  

II Corinthians 10:4-6 

For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds; Casting down imaginations and every high thing that exalts itself (temptations) against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.  And having in a readiness, to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.    

For your future, for your own peace of mind.  For your family, for your future blessings.  Stay away, from temptation.  Only God, can deliver you from the temptation.  Believe me, I know.  

God has delivered me from temptation.  From time to time.  And I am very grateful, to Him, for that as well.  I don’t have to live with the guilt of some sins.  That I could have fallen into, after accepting Christ.  I don’t have to live with a memory, that would haunt me, here and there, of some temptations.  And I am still, watchful, to be aware of it.  Temptation, comes from the devil himself.  And I want nothing to do with the devil.  Nothing.  The benefits, God gives me, outweighs any temptation.   So grateful, I am aware of curses, temptation brings.  No thank you, get out of my way satan.  For my Christ, is the way, the truth, and life.

And as I conclude, my message on “temptation” dear one, I don’t know you, or your situation.  Why you may have done, what you have done, or why, you are in the position in temptation.  Maybe, you have already given in to a temptation.  But there is a solution.  His name is Jesus Christ.  Go to Him.  Bow before him, humble, knowing you have sinned.  Go to Him, and repent.  Let his blood from the cross cleanse you.  Let him comfort you, and show you a better life.  And more then anything you will know, you have a place with him, for eternity.   

We all have sinned, we all come short of His glory, but let us be the more wiser, let us stay away from temptation.  Let us learn from our mistakes.  And even the mistakes from others.  The Bible, gives us so many examples to learn from.  So, we do not make the mistake.  Let us remember, what Christ did on the cross for each one of us.     

Just my Thoughts, with Love, Elena Ramirez

Father, I thank you, for the deliverance of temptations, that you give, to us, your children, if we are mindful, to submit to you.  Your word says, submit to God, resist, the devil, and he will flee.  The key, is to submit to you.  To give no place to your enemy.  To know your will, to know, what is right and wrong in your sight.  To be aware, to be sober, and vigilant, so the enemy who is watching, to devour, will not have a way.  Lord, I just thank you, for the times, you have delivered me from temptation.  I hope, never to go through anything, that tries to take me away from you.  By my own consciousness, here, I know, how sin, destroys.  How it kills, how it takes people, away from the plan you have for them.  Lord, I just write this, mindful, how important, it is to be aware, of the enemies plans.  We cannot just live, anyway we want.  Taking what we want, not honoring one another, or situations, where the enemy, is setting traps.  In temptation. We have to be mindful of this.  So much so, not only because of our eternal future, but that which we have on this earth.  Lord, I wish, when younger, I had not submitted to temptations.  But you are the Lord, who can restore, even now.  Lord, God, Father, thank you for giving me, and the reader wisdom, in this.  To be careful, not to get caught up in temptations.  You will make a way, for you are the way, the truth, and life.  In Jesus name.  Amen

I HATE RACISM BUT NOT THE RACIST. WHY?


Strange, title.  But it keeps coming to me, prompting from the Holy Spirit, so I will write about this, praying for guidance.  This is true in my heart though, that I hate racism, but I do not hate the racist.

Why?  Because, I am commanded by God, to love him first, and then love others. Matthew 22:37-39 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.  this is the first and great commandment.  And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.

And because God is Love….1 John 4:8.

So, Yes, I try to love….Because God so loved me, He sent his only son, if I believe, I would have ever lasting life.  His love changed me.  Totally, rearranged my thinking, my heart, and my place to have in heaven.  So, I am conscious of love.  Because the sacrifice of Christ compels me to love.

Even the racist, who may not love me, because I am Hispanic.  Yes, I hate racism, I hate, what it has done throughout history.  History does tell us, how some even in a small group, can cause hate to grow with the intention to destroy.  Causing genocide.  Killing, hurting, wounding, innocent, people because of a hate, for another race that thinks it is superior.

This is just wrong in the sight of God.  God is not a respector of persons.  Acts 10:34-35 Then Peter opened his mouth, and said of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons.  But in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness is accepted with him.

He accepts us because He created us.  He loves us all.  When someone is cut, their blood is still red. Just as Christ’s blood is red, the only difference, there is no sin, in his blood.  The blood of Christ, ran for us, and he took, all of our sins, upon his back, and side, and received nails in his hands, and feet, a crown of thorns, to show us, his love.  To show everyone, we could defeat the enemy.  By His sacrifice of blood.

His love, His sacrifice, is the greatest example of love, for one another.  He wants us to love, as He does.  He wants us, to first, love the Father, to come before him, humble, repentant, giving our sins, our cares, and yes making him, our Lord and savior.  Knowing, that His sacrifice, by His blood, was the greatest gift He could do for us.  When we do that, our blood is His blood, and our sins, are cleansed.  Purified, with his love, we are able to love others.  We cannot love others, truly without His love.

Yet, we don’t get it right.  Many are still motivated by hate, for other races.  Racism, still, goes on, even in our “politically correct” world, or nation.  I am glad there are laws that are implemented, that discourage it.  But, the only way anyone can truly be rid of it, is by obeying God in this.  Love God, with all your heart and soul, and then love your neighbor.

I have seen racism, in my lifetime, concerning my own family.  And the stories my father, and mother shared, just seem so unreal.  But they happened.  I have seen it in my own lifetime.  Maybe not as prevalent, as my parents, shared with me.  Where for instance, my father, was denied access to a restaurant, because he was Hispanic, even though, he was dressed nice.

But I have felt it, in my younger years, when I applied for a job.  Or I walked into an exclusive store, and was talked down to, by a snobby clerk.  And I cannot help but remember, growing up, we would see racism, all the time.  Kids would call each other names, by their race.  You dirty this…Or stupid that, and it would always be focused on the kids race.  Then, we would hear it so much, we became desentized.  But now, in retrospect, and with a bit of wisdom, it was obvious, parents were not teaching love, of other people to their children.  And if a parent, does not show love, or respect, to other ethnicities or people from a different race, and culture, a kid will pick up on that hate real quick.  Because that, is what they are taught.

Sadly, I have even seen it, in the body of Christ.  Which really bothers me, because love, and love for others, is not evident in the church.  Lets be honest, it is not taught in the church.  I cannot ever recall going to any church, and the message of love, and the message to love those of other races, was taught.  If it was told, I may have missed it that Sunday….

But I know it in my heart, and I know it is something God wants to be shared.  Because I have seen racism, in the body of Christ.  Its ugly.  Its sad, and it stereotypes people.

Now, before I get anybody upset with me, please do not assume, I am seeing it in anybody lately.  Because I don’t.   I am attending a church, where there is a great mixture of people, of different races, and that relaxes me.  But I have attended predominantly exclusive churches, where one race, seemed to dominate, the church pews.  It does not bother me, now, but I have to be honest, there were times, when I would hear jokes coming from the pulpit, and things said, that would stereo-type people of certain races.

And I would feel like standing up and shouting; “Hey wait a minute.  That is a racist comment.”That bothered me.  But who does that, and gets out of order?  Maybe now, I would say something.  I am just that bold.  But earlier I would not.  Being respectful, being polite.  But knowing, that kind of banter, is not loving, not Christ like, not walking in love, toward another person, of a different race.  I would ponder on it.  And there have been times, I have heard things or seen things done to hurt someone, because of race, that bothered me terribly.  But I would also forgive.  Because I am called to forgive as well.  Matthew 6:14-15 For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you; But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

I really would love to see, the body of Christ uniting more in this.  In being true expressions of love, and reaching out to other people, other races.  I would love to see Pastors on television, and in our communities, extending love, extending a hand to others of different races, even as a church mission, to bring other people of different colors to their church.  I live in Colorado, and for the most part, the churches are segregated.  They may not intend for that to be the case, but it is.  What it is……

I just want to say, for the record.  I love all people.  I want to be friends with all people, because of Christ.  I may be shy, in many instances.  And, I may not understand all cultures, or the ways of people, traditions, habits, from one culture to the next.  But I do understand, Christ died for all of us.  And when He tells me to love others, I want to take it to heart.  I want to be a reflection, and expression of His love.

Maybe you do too.  But you can’t just think about it, and not do anything about it.  So, I challenge you even here.  What can you do, to extend love to someone of another race?  Thats not phony, but sincere, and caring?

How about inviting them to your church?    Your home, lunch…..And then just be loving to them, in a respectable, honorable way, like Christ would.  Love them….like family.   Include them in your church activities.  Make them feel like they are a part of the body of Christ, in your church. Knowing in your heart, this pleases God….

Knowing, you are fulfilling the greatest commandment, by loving God, you are loving others…..

Just my thoughts, with love, Elena Ramirez

Father, I do praise you, and love you this morning.  As I write, as I count my blessings, and as I sometimes, see, we need love in this world.  And in our churches.  And just in our hearts, to ease pain, to activate your truth, and goodness.  Love is so needed.  Lord, theres a song, that is coming to me, that we used to sing in choir in High school.  Let there be peace on earth, and let it begin with me…..Lord, let there be love, on earth, and let it begin with me.  We all have to see where, we are, and where we stand, with you in all matters.  Obedient to your word, obedient to your truth, and principles, commandments.  Lord, we are called to love you first, and then one another.  May this just be a reminder, it is not meant to offend any one, but if it does, oh well.  Love, forgives, and love, loves….In Jesus name.  Amen

DO YOU HAVE THE MENTALITY AND SPIRITUALITY OF A VICTIM OR SOMEONE VICTORIOUS?


I can only relate this to myself, to understand, or to see, because I live with myself.  If you get my drift.  I know who I was before Christ.  I was a loser. With a victims mentality.

But, I know who I am in Christ, now.  Victorious. Able to do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Phillipians 4:13.

So, I know, that through Christ, I am more than a conqueror, the victory is mine. Nay in all these things we are more than conquerors, through him, that loved us.  Romans 8:37.

I am a winner, because for most of my life, I have had to fight.  And I have not won all battles.  But when I let God fight my battles I win.  I know, in Gods word, that the battle is his.  I Samuel 17:47. And he is always, victorious.  So because of his word, and because of Christ.  I am victorious.

But, I have not always had this mentality/spirituality.

I express it, here, as being a form of mentality/spirituality, because thats where it starts.  It starts in your head.  As a man thinks, so is he.  Provers 23:7. But it is a spirit as well because we are either serving God, or serving the devil, in our spirituality.  Whether one wants to believe this or not. These are principles of God.  And you will either choose God, or his advesary.  Which I do not recommend. But just know this….We all sin, we all come short of the glory of God.  Romans 3:23

Before I knew Christ, and before I knew his word, the Holy Bible, I definitely had a victims mentality/spirituality. Because everything, I based it on, was on my own examples of life.  There was no foundation for being victorious, because I had no goal to work for, in the sense, that I could know who I could be.  Or even more so, who God was. Knowing God, understanding God, comes from his Holy word.  But not everyone opens the Bible.  Even Christians, who have a victim mentality/spirituality.

Many of us, do not always have strong family backgrounds. Loving, nurturing homes.  Some of us fall through the cracks of society.  Some have been hurt and abused, by people, over and over again.  Some are not always able to have a good education, or able to get above poverty.

So, internally, one may begin, thinking, that they are not good enough.  That they are victims. That everyone is against you.  Thats a victims mentality.  Afraid, fearful, and not trusting.  Thats a spirit of fear, and Gods word says, he has not give us a spirit of fear, but of power, love and a sound mind.  II Timothy 1:7. But if you do not know that, or know Gods word, how are you going to make that distinction, again, between the devil, and God?

Nonetheless, we go through things, that make us extremely cautious.  No matter what our background is, because we have learned….

That you cannot trust everyone.  Even some of those, that have said, they come in the name of the Lord.  You cannot always trust them.

Sadly, that could be most everyone, because not all people are trustworthy.  Even if they do have good backgrounds.  Because we all have a sin nature.  The Bible tells us we are born of the devil.   That he is our Father.  Who wants to believe that?  But it is true, unless you get born again.  And live for the Lord.

But one must truly understand, that in order, to change, or to be the best we can be, with a victorious mentality and spirituality, one, needs to see, and recognize that Jesus Christ is Lord, and savior.  He is the only way, the truth, and the life.  John 14:6.

This is how we recognize, and know, we can have a mind change.  To obtain the characteristics of God in his love.  To make God your Father! And to have eternal redemption, by the blood of Jesus.

So in this world, where people will let you down, or hurt you, who can you trust?

You can trust, Jesus Christ!  For Christ is trustworthy.  He will never leave or forsake you. Hebrews 13:5. When you begin, knowing who Christ is, understanding his love. Understanding his obedience to God the father, for the plan of mankind. Understanding Gods love, the Father, that he had to make a way, for us to be saved, because as He is a holy God, he could not tolerate sin.

He wants us to see, that we were created in his image, that by him, we could do all things through Christ who strengthen us.  That we had a way to be saved, not only for salvation, but here on earth. For our sins do separate us from a Holy God.  So when you see, you are made in his image, you see yourself victorious, not the victim.  Because you understand, he can heal you.  That is spiritually, and physically.  For by his stripes, that he took on his back, and his suffering, in all areas.  Because of that, we can be healed.  To no longer be victims, but victorious.

Many do not know, the plan of salvation.  Or if they have heard of it, they think, that they have sinned too much, or done, something so heinous, or evil, that there is no way God would forgive them.  But he will….But not knowing that, one will continue, with the victims mentality.  Never a winner, always a loser.  And on, and on, and on….and in that process, also hurting others.

When I finally made a decision, to try and do things Gods way, I had to make the commitment, to turn from my sins.  I had to to make the commitment, to try and do things Gods way.  Now no one is perfect, and even in this walk with Christ, I have learned, it is a process.  No one, hits one with a magic wand, and everything goes away, or appears.  That does not come from God, and if thats what you are expecting, it does not work that way.  Even well meaning Christians, who do not know Gods word, still can have a victims mentality.

But it comes, by making a commitment, daily, to search for God, to read his word, to love others, as Christ loved us, and to learn these principles from God, that makes for a better life.  Commit thy works unto the LORD, and thy thoughts shall be established.  Proverbs 16:3

For a better way.  Being victorious, is a choice.  That is not demanded, or expected, for others to do it your way.  It comes from doing it Gods way.

I can only conclude, as I close this, that I don’t know you.  I don’t know your circumstances, your pain, your hurt, your lack of self-confidence, or self-esteem, or why you are the way you are.  But there is one who does know.  That is God.  And He loves you so very, very much, and will accept you as you are.  But on his terms.  Not yours.

He is able to work through, all the  pain, all the disappointments, and will make you victorious for his name.  But you have to decide once and for all you, that you, no longer want to be the victim. But victorious, because He is your Lord and savior.  Its a choice.  It always has been…..

So how do you change your mentality and spirituality?  By coming to the cross, a sinner, who has maybe already done this….But come again, give your victim mentality to God, ask for his protection.  Renew your mind, by his word, and let your words that you speak reflect, who God is. Not your problem, not the past, but the plan, he has for you.  This is very important.  The words you speak are life or death, in this.  You need to change your words to reflect Gods words, in who he has called you to be.  No longer, the victim, but victorious.  Its all there in his word.  But you have to search for it, in this daily process….  Never, ever, ever give up though.  And forgive those, who have victimized you.  As you do that, the poison of all hurts, will be removed.  That you will see immediately.  The blood of Jesus, is what makes you victorious.  Never forget the sacrifice, of Christ for you in this.  I PRAISE GOD, HALLELUJAH FOR THIS!!!

You will be victorious!!  Just trust God…..

Just my Thoughts, with love, from Christ,

Victorious,

Elena Ramirez

See, I have set before thee this day, to love the Lord thy God, to walk in his ways, and to keep his commandments and his statutes and his judgments, that thou mayest live and multiply:  and the Lord thy God, shall bless thee in the land, whither thou goes to possess it.  But if thine heart turn away, so that thou will not hear but shall be drawn away and worship other gods, and serve them.  I denounce unto you this day, that you shall surely perish, and that ye shall not prolong your days upon the land, whether thou passest over Jordan to go to possess it.  I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life, and death, blessing, and cursing:  Therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live.  Deuteronomy 30:16-18

A Prayer of Honor+

Father, my Lord, who I adore, and trust, I thank you, that by you, by Christ, by your holy spirit, I can be victorious, in all things.  Lord, sometimes, I can get weary, as we all do.  But I rest in you.  I trust you.  I rely on your promises.  And because I do, I claim the battle is yours.  Not mine.  Lord, I pray, whoever is reading this, would know the same thing too.  As we rest in you, in love, and trust, and by your word.  You fight our battles, you make a way.  You take back what the devil has stolen.  And by you, and you alone, we have victory.  I claim that in the name of Jesus, and I plead the blood.  For to have the victory, is to have the mind of Christ.  And that only comes by you, and your holy word.  I love your word, I cherish it, and I thank you my Lord, God.  For the victory, in Jesus name.  Thank you for changing my mentality/spirituality from a victims, to victorious, by Christ, and his blood shed on the cross.  Thank you, that I am a new person, and victorious.  Hallelujah,  In all things.  In Jesus name.  Amen
