For Whom the Bell Tolls

"Now is the judgment of this world.
Now the ruler of this world will be cast out.
John 12:31

I know I just posted here a couple of days ago, but my devotional reading was just so wonderful this morning I just have to share it! Hope it is an encouragement to someone else as well.

"The enemy has no right to hold you back from realizing any of the benefits God has promised you in His Word. They are yours. And yet, it's quite likely that you are vividly aware today of an area of real captivity in your life.

I urge you to come before God with boldness today, asking Him in Jesus' name not to let the enemy steal one bit of the victory God has for you. We must not allow intimidation or fear (
bold lettering mine) to imprison us in any area. Remember, Satan can presume no authority in your life. He will do his best to bluff you. Don't let him. Instead listen closely. The liberty bell is ringing."

There is victory in Jesus. The bell of freedom is ringing today!

Help her heart to know You have called her to these women and that You have a message for their hearts. Thank You Father for Joys obedience! We love You Lord!Amen

Hi, Joy! :)

I wish we would have met at She Speaks 2008! I was also there 2007. Are you going in 2009?

Blessings to you this weekend!

Hi Joy!

Consider this your invite! Hope you'll join in with us!

I am looking for as many people as we can find that would like to participate in a bloggy "Giving Thanks on Thanksgiving." I dreamed this idea up as a way to give thanks to the Lord for His work in each of our lives by sharing our testimonies with the world wide web on Monday, November 24, 2008. That's the Monday before Thanksgiving guys! Many of you may choose to leave that post up for the entire week and I encourage that. My prayer is that this sharing of our testimonies will not only encourage each other and give Glory to our Lord, but also to those who happen upon our blogs.

For more info go to:
www.themouthbehindthemoose.blogspot.com (That reads "The Mouth Behind The Moose".blogspot.com)

Hope your testimony will be there too!!

Grace & Peace,
Heather Twitchell
