Martin Luther King Jr Day
Love this the only force capable of transforming an enemy to a friend. -Martin Luther King Jr
This day is about a man who stood up for what was right and did so with the strength God enabled him to have. It’s hard to look back and see what times were like in his day. We’ve come so far, and also much work still needs to be done. We need to pray for our fellow man and ask for healing in our nation. We need to pray against the spirit of hatred and racism. We need to love each other, not because our enemies deserve it, but because Jesus did so for us ALL.

“I give you a new commandment—to love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. Everyone will know by this that you are my disciples—if you have love for one another.” -John 13:34-35
Only Jesus alone can transform a heart of hatred. The change of a heart can change a person’s entire life and everyone around them. Your prayers can be the change someone makes to let God transform them.
Be a prayer warrior.
Be the change.
Pray and love!
Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase. -Martin Luther King Jr.
For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take every thought captive to make it obedient to Christ. And we will be ready to punish every act of disobedience, once your obedience is complete.
2 Corinthians 10:3-6
What goes on inside your mind and thoughts can be very different then what you show on the outside. Inside you may harbor dark thoughts, wandering thoughts, and straying thoughts. You may do what is right on the outside, but on the inside your thoughts are waging war. God doesn’t want your thoughts to take you captive. He wants you to bind the Word to your mind. What that means is taking scripture and mediating on it to the point where no evil thought can penetrate. Let His Word lead your thoughts and emotions. If your mind is dwelling and continually mediating on the Word then your thoughts will eventually become one with God’s. That’s what He wants for you; to have a mind of Christ. Your head is what rules your life and out of the heart comes your true intentions. If you let God change your thoughts, He can change your life!
