Bobby ConnerThis is a season of confrontation and contending to overcome every pitfall that our foe, the devil, puts in our pathway. With bold, brave determination we must be relentless in our pursuit of God's holy presence!

You shall hide them in the secret place of Your presence from the plots of man; You shall keep them secretly in a pavilion from the strife of tongues. Psalm 31:20

Hold back nothing – none of your hidden agendas, selfish ambitions, old grudges, and unforgiveness. Confess every sin that the Holy Spirit brings to your awareness and continue to ask Him for a spirit of repentance. Do not take lightly the urgency of the hour: Put your very best effort into a passionate, unrelenting, moment-by-moment, pursuit of God. Establishing the Kingdom of God in your life must be Pray, Pursue God, and Laugh While You Do It!your top priority.

But seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Matthew 6:33

A key focus in drawing ever closer to God is seeking to extract out of your life absolutely everything that hinders you from drawing near:

"Therefore, since these [great] promises are ours, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from everything that contaminates and defiles body and spirit, and bring our consecration to completeness in the [reverential] fear of God" (2 Corinthians 7:1).

Have You Come Into Agreement With the Enemy?

Pray fervently for the Holy Spirit to reveal to you any and all filthiness of your flesh or your spirit. Have you come into agreement with devilish spirits of accusation and rejection? With spirits of bitterness and unforgiveness? Have you given into an unloving spirit? Have you given into a spirit of anger or fear? Do you live with a burden of shame, guilt, or regret concerning the past?

Beloved, recognize these emotions for what they are: works of the enemy to destroy your soul and keep you from your inheritance, the manifest presence of God! Renounce your agreement with these evil works of darkness and repent from your sins, receiving the Lord's mercy and forgiveness by the Blood of His Cross.

Only then will you be free to abide in Christ and enjoy God's magnificent presence.

My Firm Foundation by Jennifer PageHow do we cast off this filthiness of the flesh and spirit? Spend time worshiping God and confessing His Word over your life. Renew your mind by meditating on the Word of God, especially Scriptures calling us to walk in holiness and the fear of the Lord.Pull down "every thought to the obedience of Christ":

"Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ" (2 Corinthians 10:5).

Fear exalts itself against the knowledge of Christ – pull it down! It is disobedience. Unforgiveness exalts itself against the knowledge of Christ – pull it down! It is disobedience. Accusations, bitterness, rejection – pull them all down! Coming into agreement with the lies of the enemy is no less than rebellion and disobedience.

Take hold of your thoughts and be vigilant. Let no unholy thought take root in your mind or heart. The enemy may make suggestions and whisper lies that may sound like your own inner voice, but know that these are the temptations of Hell. Resist temptation, open your heart to the love of God, and turn your mind back to the Word of God.

Magnificent and transforming results will transpire for us when we cleanse ourselves "from everything that contaminates and defiles body and spirit" and enter into God's presence. As we, with an open heart, behold Him, we will be transformed more and more into His image.

A Victorious Overcomer

You will show me the path of life; in Your presence is fullness of joy; at Your right hand are pleasures forevermore. Psalm 16:11

Path of Light by Jennifer PageAs we learn to walk in holiness and the fear of the Lord, the Spirit of God will release light for our pathway and peace and joy for our life. Be certain of this: Only in Christ's presence will we find overwhelming joy, which endures through any circumstance.

For with You is the fountain of life; in Your light do we see light. Psalm 36:9

And also be certain of this: Only in Christ's presence can we experience victorious life, instruction, and illumination. No Believer needs to stumble about in darkness. Simply lift your eyes and follow the Lord.

For You will light my lamp; the Lord my God will enlighten my darkness. Psalm 18:28

The revealed Word of God states:

"This is the message which we have heard from Him and declare to you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the Blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin" (1 John 1:5-7).

As we yield to and abide in Christ, His radiant love and light literally beam outward from our life. Let your light shine bright during these days!

Beloved, this is the time to arise and shine. Boldly becoming the victorious overcomer you are destined to be (see Romans 8:37).

  • I chose this day to let go all of the devils things that has attached itself to me for years and I am embrassing the life that God intended for me to have. All the things he mentioned have kept me from my inheritance for 37 years, this is where I am drawing the line and chosen to walk in the freedom of God

  • I believe we should keep the whole armour of God on because we wrestle not against flesh and blood but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places according to Ephesians 6: 11-12. So we are to put on the whole armour that we will be able to withstand evil.

  • this is great,  we must constantly b aware that we wrestle not against flesh and blood, therefore we must consciously keep the whole armour of God on. dark and light can't dwell together in the same place at the same time. r lights must out shine the darkness in this world because we R overcomers, the price has been paid in full...the Lord is our LIGHT and SALVATION. Staying in the word and keeping praise in my heart and thoughts , sometimes the high beams just kick in.

  • Praise God whom all blessing flow ,I ask god to to create in me a pure heart and a right spirit.i send any unclean spirit or assignment back to the sender.let me walk in the boldness of my calling.and let my life shine that the lost might see you in me and turn from there wicked ways.Help my desire and passion to serve always stay in line with your will and help me be the leader you created me to be.Teach me to war in the spirit and not the flesh.

  • I'm an OVERCOMER!
    Renouncing , Repenting, and then Receiving.
    Receive renewal of mind and regeneration of our soul.
    Got it.
    This was great reading.
  • Interesting. When I really came to Christ my pastor always taught me to pray 2corn. 10:5 in the amplified version especially. After awhile I started to see the difference between my arguments and the enemies arguments. It really is an effective tool for minstry.
  • This is that God has been dealing with me on. You can't change your environment without changing within. It takes understanding self and the why's as to how you landed in a place to never go there again. The more time you spend in a His Presence the more likely you are to be chipped, chizzled,and polished for making a difference as a victor, a conqueror, the overcomer, because you've yielded to the Father. Be true to you!!!
  • Lord I can't explain  thoroughly the way I feel now but I am so grateful for the obedience of these Men and Women of God. This is confirmation and teaching for me. I am constantly striving to be the victorious overcomer the was described in this article. I am desperate to bring down and cast out the strong holds that the devil is bounding me with. Just to be taught in a simple passage just shows how each and every ministry and chosen person of God is necessary. Just to be able to relate to the people of this world whether saved or not you bring them closer to salvation, faith, and righteousness it is a divine defining moment in their life!
