28 Whoever has no rule over his own spirit Is like a city broken down, without walls. 22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long-suffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law. The Lord is still our Strength in our weakness on Him we can still stand for in those weakness God is at our side. Just remember to check your shame at the door because we are in The Father's house! "God is constantly on the move. I cannot stay where I am and follow God at the same time; responding requires movement." There is nothing better than Jesus never be ashamed to show Him our weakness He still calls us His! Praise Jesus Glorify to God.

I'm struggling today with demons. I'm actually failing.... I feel like I can't even pray to God, because I know it would be fake. ( the funny part is, these demons were one under a better control).. this pandemic made it ask the worse. I am sorry God that I know I am not living up to your standards. I hope someday you can forgive me.
Amen, when times come upon us, remind us the battle belongs to you. It’s not ours to fight. We trust and remind Satan his outcome. Glory to God he has already been defeated! Hallelujah!
