Friday Favorites

Today it's a little different Friday Favorite, as I was reading my devotionals this morning one struck a real chord with me.  It came out of the book "From Faith to Faith: A Daily Guide to Victory" by Kenneth and Gloria Copeland. The devotional was entitled "Punch a Hole in the Dam."

It's all about a little faith can go a long way. Like the story of the child who put his finger in the hole in a dam to keep it from becoming a larger hole. He knew that one the force of that little bit of water could start a chain reaction that could bring down the dam.  So my challenge is to put a little faith and break the dam that the devil has built around me and break it down a piece at a time. By using faith and the word of God I can tear down any dams that the devil is trying to contain me with.

Like the dam that I'm too busy to take care of my health. LIE I am a child of God and I deserve to treat my body like the temple designed by God that it is and fill it with nourishment and take care of it.

Like the dam that says we will never get ahead in our finances. LIE. It says in the scripture that the God will provide and that He wants his children to prosper.

Like the dam that says I can never be a good enough wife or mother. LIE. I know God can guide me and shows me the way in all things, no matter how big or small to take care of my family.

"Lord, Jesus, I know that you are a master of tearing down walls that confine us. Open Your word to me today and help me find peace and strength to break down these dams that imprison me. Your love can conquer anything that holds us down and can free us. Amen."
