WEEKLY WORD OF POWER AND PRAYER
Week of October 16, 2017



Real

Toughness! 

       In society, sometimes we think if you don’t express emotion and you don’t cry out, then you’re tough.  Wrong.  The really tough people know how to cry out to God and trust Him (Psalm 86:2).  It’s the weaker ones who rely on themselves and try to act as though they are tough.  They’re the ones that end up going to pieces because they didn’t go to God.  So He is not there to hold them together. 

       When you go to God during a trial as the enemy is chewing on you, you won’t go to pieces because God is going to hold you together.  He will give you tough emotions to make it and therefore see a great victory over what the devil has tried to do. 

       There was a man who discovered what it really meant to have tough emotions when he was attending a special course with a group of adults in his church.  Everything was going fine until the teacher gave each person the assignment to go to someone within the next week and tell them of their love for them.  But here was the catch.  It had to be someone to whom they had never said those words or at least they had not said them for quite a while. 

       Well, for some people that would not be a tough assignment, but this man had been raised in the generation where men were taught that expressing emotions was not macho.  You didn’t show your feelings or cry.  That just wasn’t done.  But he was going to find out that real toughness is being able to share your feelings.  That’s what takes guts to do.  Anyone can ignore their feelings or try to block them.  But it’s much harder to express them in the ways God desires.

       So as this man was driving home one day, his conscience began to remind him that five years ago he and his father had a vicious argument and it had never been resolved.  They had avoided seeing each other except for Christmas or family gatherings.  So God’s Spirit dealt with this man that it was time to tell his father that he loved him.  That’s when he made the decision he was going to do this tough thing.  He said when he made that decision, it was as though a heavy burden came off him.

       So at 5:30 that evening, he went to his parents’ house and when his dad answered the door, his son said, “Dad, I just came over to tell you that I love you.” 

       At that moment, it was as if a transformation came over his father.  His face softened, the wrinkles seemed to disappear, and his dad began cry.  He reached out and hugged his son and said, “I love you too, Son, but I’ve never been able to say it.” 

        Now that’s tough emotions, and that’s what they can do in your life when you allow God to give them to you.  The devil had been devouring the relationship of that man and his father.  But the day the son decided to stand up to what was happening and tell his dad about his feelings, he became tough to chew on.  When he gave in and began to trust God, that’s when the burden was removed and the work of the enemy was weakened and of no effect.

       That’s what happens when we have faith and trust in what God will do in spite of the circumstances we see.  The burden is removed from us.  The work of the enemy is weakened; it becomes of no effect.  That’s because we’re so tough, that when he bites down on us, he can’t keep chewing. 

       Don’t allow the enemy to keep chewing on you today.  Make a decision as that man did that whatever you have to do which takes tough emotions, you can do it.  You can make it.  You will get through this issue or need or problem.  And not just get through it, but you will come out with greater strength and ability and wisdom.  Greater blessing and endurance and miracles. 

       Yes, you will see the power of God do a great work for you because the enemy could not devour what should be yours from God’s hands.  You’re just too tough for him to chew.  So, you get to experience the tremendous plans God has working for you.  


A Spiritual Powerline to say out loud:
“I AM TOUGH!”

Here is a powerful prayer to say out loud:     

       Lord, as I face my need, I’m going to You instead of going to pieces.  Now the enemy is weakened.  His efforts won’t work.  He’s just come up against something that’s tougher than he is—my faith.  So now I believe I see a turnaround in the name of Jesus.  Amen.

Allow God to give you emotions that can withstand the demands that are placed on you during certain times.  Those emotions can be a support to help you walk into victory.  When you are tough, you are hard to beat.  Your emotions can’t be tossed around and cause you to become weak and prevent you from making it.  This toughness will help you do what you need to do.
