Hello ladies and gents!

I have decided to take a one week break/refresher!

I will be posting another video blog next Monday morning and think this one will really be impactful on each one of you. It is a short, one week (atleast that's the plan right now :) ) "Leadership event!"

I really hope you'll join me next week and invite others to join us as we look at what God's Word says about you....and leadership.

I typed out, "Love you all!" and then wrote after it, " (I'm gonna say that even if it sounds weird!)"......but it actually feels a little too weird.

So, I care about you guys! Ok, now that's just weird too. Heck, God bless :) Look forward to seeing you next week!

And don't forget to invite somebody if you can!

For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. 4 The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world.
2 Corinthians 10:3-4

Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes. 12 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. 6:10-12


Base everything below on this truth: We are fighting with God. We are putting on His Armor. Fight, using the steps below, knowing this truth.

1) Keep truth tight w/ you
Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist... Eph. 6:14

2) Protect your heart with Christ through deeds of righteousness
...with the breastplate of righteousness in place... Eph. 6:14

3) With readiness and the message of Jesus Christ (Be ready in Christ!)
...with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace... Eph. 6:15

4) With your faith in God protecting you from all the lies of the evil one.

In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Eph. 6:16

5) Know how to be saved. If you are saved, remember: you are saved.
...Take the helmet of salvation... Eph. 6:17

6) Read, know and meditate on the Bible, the Word of God.
"Take... the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God." Eph. 6:17

Lastly, pray.
...And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints. Eph. 6:18

You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.
1 John 4:4

"19 Pray also for me, that whenever I open my mouth, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel,

20 for which I am an ambassador in chains. Pray that I may declare it fearlessly, as I should." Ephesians 6:19-20

In Christ Jesus we have freedom. Through the Son of God's Life we have freedom. We are free people when we believe Jesus Christ died for us and make Him our LORD and Savior.

Praise God :)
Satan's Experiments for this Generation: Time.

This experiment of Satan will hinder you from:
1) Growing Closer to God
and 2) Hearing God's voice

How do we overcome? We realize,

"We make time for what we value." - Craig Groeschel

and re-prioritize and get back alone time with God.

When I have alone time with God, I feel so close to Him, hear Him so clearly, and praise Him so much. When I miss alone time with Him...I feel distant, feel like I can't hear Him at all, and praise Him not nearly as much.

That shows how important making room for God is in our every day lives.

I encourage you to read the Word....God's Word, the Bible, and meditate on it and simply talk and listen to God throughout the process. Throughout your day make reminders in your cell phone calendar...and post-it-notes...and little reminder tools of any sort.

Just don't be the average person as God said...................................no, make room for Your God! We make time for what we value!

One more quick note: I don't even really like calling it "making" room for God.
   -   If you are taking notes, remember this: We don't find time for God, we don't make time for God, but we take the time He has so graciously given us and say, "I will praise You!"

God's best to you!

This week I want to ask you all: What do you think Satan's Experiments for this generation are?

We've talked about mental imprisonment and apathy...but now I'm interested in what you believe Satan is doing to warp and hurt and distract our generation.

What do you think Satan's Experiments (or schemes) for this generation are?

Leave your comment below, or even better - leave a video reply!

I hope we can all have our eyes opened to Satan's schemes so that we can see them and push past them for the glory of our God and of our Savior, Jesus Christ!

In Christ and For Christs' Glory! Jared
