Daily Bible Study with Purpose


Galatians 6:7-8
7 Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap. 8 For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life.


I have finally unsubscribed to a website because of getting so many text messages to subscribe online to get a license to carry a weapon quickly. “Every week new shooter,” “protect self and loved ones,” hurry before the Feds shut them down,” on and on with more fear tactics to reign you in. 
These are indeed trying times, but my God is not dead. I don’t believe that He is oblivious to the hearts of man, the hatred, the distrust, and the cruelty that has taken on a whole new life.
I feel duly licensed to carry, and I believe that my weapon is more powerful and more inflicting than any firearm on the market. God’s Word is more powerful than any two-edged sword. In fact, “it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.” (Hebrews, 4:12).
I encourage you to conceal His Word in your heart, mind, body, and soul. I serve a God so protective and powerful that I believe His promise to me that “No weapon formed against me will prevail, and I will refute every tongue that accuses me.” That is my heritage because I am a servant of the Lord, and he has vindicated me.” (Isaiah 54:1).
Do you have this blessed assurance of a fully guaranteed “Sealed” Carry License? That is a weapon you do not have to hide. You can wear it like a coat of armor in season and out of season, in good and bad times. “You will have the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:7 Yes, “peace,” not the piece/gun that kills, steals, and destroys!
