AND MAKE THE SWITCH TO AMBIT ENERGY TODAY!! FIND WHERE IT’S WRITTEN TODAY’S SCRIPTURE “Jesus answered, ‘It is written...’ ” (Matthew 4:4, NIV) TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria Anytime you are facing adversity or trials, the first line of defense needs to be in your mind. If you allow fear to come in and take root in your thinking, it becomes a stronghold that affects every part of you. But when thoughts of fear come, you don’t have to “sign for the package,” so to speak. Instead of activating fear by meditating on it, believing it and speaking it, you can turn things around and activate faith.

Matthew 15:18 But the things that come out of a person’s mouth come from the heart, and these defile them. Proverbs 23:19 Listen, my son, and be wise, and set your heart on the right path:

How do you activate faith? Hebrews tells us that the Word of God is living and active, sharper than a double-edged sword, able to divide soul and spirit. When the enemy tried to tempt Jesus, He gave us the example of how to respond. He said, “It Is Written!” Instead of going through the day worried, thinking about how it’s not going to work out, start meditating on what God says. Activate faith by speaking the Word of God. Let

it sink down inside of you and transform your being. Always remember, His Word is alive, His Word is truth, His Word is your weapon. So take hold of His promises and find where it is written!

A PRAYER FOR TODAY Father, thank You for Your Word which lights my path and transforms my life. I

choose today to turn my thoughts toward You. I choose today to meditate on Your Word and Your promises so that I can be empowered to live in the victory You have prepared for me in Jesus’ name. Amen.

1 John 2:22 Who is the liar? It is whoever denies that Jesus is the Christ. Such a person is the antichrist--denying the Father and the Son.

“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark

world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.” (Ephesians 6:12, NIV)

TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria Friends, throughout life, fear will come knocking at the door, selling you the worst case scenario. Fear tells you, “You’re going to lose your job. Your marriage is over. Your business is falling apart. Your child is done. It’s all downhill from here.” When those thoughts come, you don’t have to buy in. You don’t have to accept those thoughts. Here’s the key: when fear knocks, let faith answer the door. Don’t give those thoughts of fear the time of day. Don’t let them intimidate you. Answer back with faith. “Lord, You said the number of my days You would fulfill. God, You said Your plans for me are for good and not evil. God, You said what’s meant for my harm You would turn around and use to my advantage.” If you’ll keep an attitude of faith and expectancy, it’s like keeping the door locked on an intruder. Fear has no right in the life of a believer. Greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world. Remember, the battle is in your mind. The enemy is after your thoughts. Don’t give him the time of day; and when fear knocks, let faith answer the door!

A PRAYER FOR TODAY Father, I thank You for Your Word which says that You have not given me a spirit of fear, but of power, love and a sound mind. I

receive peace in my heart and mind and stand strong in faith knowing that the greater One lives in me in Jesus’ name. Amen.

1 Thessalonians 5:24 The one who calls you is faithful, and he will do it.

family, amazing what God can do, even when others ‘X’ you out! Family/extended family, keep trusting! You do not have to tell me that life at times can be very hard, I am sure many ask themselves if not everyone, when going through a tough situation how did my life end up in this mess? Well I have a word, a God breathed word for all that today are in the middle of a big mess, it does not matter what your experiencing, your mess can become a testimony. What? I hear you, you are saying but you do not understand, you have no idea, I know I have been their too. And better yet, our God-Jehovah is in the business of helping all that are struggling, and seem to find no way out, how you ask? 1 John 4:9 “God showed how much He loved us by sending His One and Only Son.” Let me talk to you about good news.

GOOD NEWS! Providence- one definition of this word means the fore seeing care and guidance of God over the creatures of the earth. God is our creator, so this means you and I, so I can tell you with confidence since he is our creator whatever situation your life is in, past, present, or future, God has a destiny, a good destiny. Despite how things look like or what we might think I will stand on what I have declared- “COMING SOON TESTIMONY’S FROM OUR FAMILY’S & FRIENDS I DECLARE IT!” As I thought about God’s providence I reflected on the life of Moses, according to the Holy Bible, a religious leader, law giver, and prophet, that God used to help liberate the children of Israel from the bondage they were in when in Egypt, despite his past. Moses at one time got himself in a big mess, yet God took him from his mess, to a destiny of good news. When you talk about the biblical Moses you have to talk about Pharaoh’s, Pharaoh was a title given to the ancient Egyptian rulers, to the king. The Pharaoh ruling during the birth of Moses made a decree, here is what he decreed written in the Holy Bible, in the second sentence of Exodus 1:22 “Every Hebrew boy that is born you throw into the Nile, but let every girl live.” Israel was in a mess, Moses came at a time when this decree was made, he was spared from being thrown in the Nile to die. Providence, when you read about this part of Moses life you will discover how God used Moses mother, sister, and even the enemy, the Pharaoh’s household to change the big mess to a testimony, family, friend, trust in Him and begin to see good news. ¡bendiciones!

TODAY’S SCRIPTURE “For whatever is born of God overcomes the world; and this is the victory that has overcome the world — our faith.” (1 John 5:4, NASB)

5L 3 SM =8

TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria Fear always presents itself much bigger than it really is. It’s always the worst-case scenario. It always tries to get you worried, anxious, uptight and panicked. Fear’s goal is to separate you from God by trying to get you to doubt His Word. But when the spirit of fear comes, recognize that it has no power unless you give it power. Don’t give it power by speaking what fear speaks. Don’t give it power by meditating on it. Instead, let the power of the Word of God rise up within you. Declare what God says; declare that God has given you all authority in heaven and earth. Declare that no weapon formed against you shall prosper. Remember, no matter how big fear presents itself, it’s no match for the power of Almighty God. When you yield yourself to Him, you tap into His power. Greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world. God is bigger than your problems and bigger than fear. Let faith rise up in your heart because faith is the victory that overcomes the world.

1 John 4:2 This is how you can recognize the Spirit of God: Every spirit that acknowledges that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God,

LIFTING THE FOG OF FEAR TODAY’S SCRIPTURE “By day the LORD went ahead of them in a pillar of cloud to guide them on their way and by night in a pillar of fire to give them light, so that they could travel by day or night.” (Exodus 13:21, NIV) - - - / Contact Ph.# 325.829.2389

TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria Fear is exaggerated. It can be overwhelming. It always takes you to the worst-case scenario. Fear is like a fog. It will always cloud the truth. It tries to make you stumble. It tries to block your vision and keep you from seeing the good plan God has on the road up ahead. So how do you lift the fog of fear? In the Bible, God led the Israelites toward their Promised Land with a cloud by day and a cloud of fire by night. It was the cloud of His glory. The cloud of His glory is where you’ll find joy, strength, peace, love and protection. It’s where you’ll find vision and direction. It will keep you on God’s path. Scripture tells us today that when we worship, He inhabits the praises of His people. He brings His glory into our midst. When God shows up, the enemy has to flee. When the cloud of His glory is present, it burns up the fog of fear.

BOLD AS A LION TODAY’S SCRIPTURE “The wicked flee when no one pursues, but the righteous are bold as a lion.” (Proverbs 28:1, NKJV)

TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria As a believer in Jesus Christ, you are called to live a bold, confident and overcoming life. You don’t have to live under the weight and pressure of fear. You don’t have to live with daily anxiety. Because of Jesus, fear, worry and uncertainty are beneath you. When you rise up in faith, knowing that God is with you and for you, all doubt and fear has to leave your life. Notice that today’s scripture says that the righteous are as bold as a lion. Righteousness is God’s way of doing things. When you do things His way, when you are submitted to His plan for your life, He will empower you with boldness and strength. He will equip you to walk in His victory. Today, if you’ve been feeling anxious or fearful, begin to declare God’s truth over your life which will set you free! Declare that you are righteous in Christ Jesus. Declare that you are more than a conqueror. Declare that you are as bold as a lion because you are a child of the Most High God!

A PRAYER FOR TODAY Father, thank You for setting me free from a spirit of fear. Thank You for filling me with strength and boldness. I set aside thoughts of worry and dread and thank You for Your peace as I keep my mind fixed on You in Jesus’ name. Amen.
