Look, I am sending you out as sheep among wolves. So be as shrewd as snakes and harmless as doves.“ Matt 10:16

Wolves are natorious for preying on sheep. Wolves will hunt and eat a sheep. This gruesome message from Jesus isn’t something to take lightly. I am sending you to very dangerous situations. I am sending you to a situation where the people would like to devour you. Be as clever (shrewd) as snakes and harmless as dove. Be strategic. Be aware. Be sober of people and your surroundings.

 

Oh I am so thankful for the Bible. Every word provided in it is so  critical for our understanding and walking by faith.  The warnings and messages will serve as important treassures to live by, to be gaurded in, and to meditate on. It’s beautiful because the Lord not only thought of everything so we might have success as faithful children but God also provided the very tools so that we would have the ability to walk it out. The very best resource we have is the Holy Spirit that perfectly teaches us all things, warns us about all things, convicts us, leads us, and comforts us. The Holy Spirit is such an amazing resource.

The things that lurk for us in the darkness can be exposed. The advice is clear be as shrewd as a snake.

Be sharp, be smart, be wise and be clever. Be a sharp player on defense. Don’t lie and wait to be devoured. We have been given the resources to pass the test and to endure to the end. We can do this! How am I so confident?! Because my hope and Faith is in His Word. His precious words that haven’t been found to be a lie even today. We can do ALL things through Christ. It’s time to put on our Holy warrior equipment and endure.

We must be wise and be as harmless as doves remembering that though these evil spirits are operating through man at times we must remember who the enemy is. Every Human on this Earth has an opportunity to receive Jesus as their Lord and savior and the moment they do makes them our sibling. We must be harmless because this war isn’t against flesh and blood but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places. Ephesians 6:12

 

Are you prepared to fight? Are you aware you are in a war? Are you acknowledging that Jesus is sending us as sheep amongst wolves? Don’t be shocked when an attack comes (because it will come), be ready! We have no need to worry or fear any enemy because the Lion (Jesus) not only walks with us but lives in us.

The Lord is setting you up to take the shot! The #NBAFinals tho! By Sherry Thorpe

Whoa Kevin! First let’s just have a moment of silence for this game being it was so exciting and stressful to the Nations lol.

Towards the end of the game Kevin comes down the court with one determined motive, get the ball in the net. Successfully shooting a 3 his head is still in the game and back to defense he went! No time for celebration. Bringing the GS back to the lead he knew the game wasn’t over because the TIME WASNT OUT!

The clock is still running!

I enjoy watching basketball because it excites me to watch good players give it all that they have to come out with a W!

I wanted to take the time to remind you that you are still in the game of “Life”. And the Lord is either trying to get your attention so He can train you or He is training you to win. Kevin says while being interviewed after the game, “I been working on that shot my whole life”. The opportunity was placed in front of him and he knew exactly what to do to get the ball to successfully sink in to the hole! #AllNet #Whoosh Uno, dos, très points please! Good job Kevin👍🏾👍🏾

Right now you are in training (or can be in training) to be stragically placed to put the team back on the winning side. Where ever you are, the Coach Lord is setting you up to WIN if you are IN Him! The bible says “The LORD himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.” – Deuteronomy 31:8

Seeking first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness.. (Matt 5:33while you are doing your earthly work the Lord is preparing you to step out on faith and take that 3 point shot you’ve been practicing for YOUR WHOLE LIFE. The opportunities are endless in God’s Kingdom and He is (or wants to) prepare you to WIN in Him. Thank you Coach Lord for preparing us!

If you do not know the Lord personally and would like to get to know Him, feel free to ask your local Christian Pastor or believer. You can also PM on social media:
