From Nothing Comes A King

This is a line from the King Arthur movie King Arthur: The Legend Of The Stone. I watched this recently and it touched me spiritually. Not only that but it has a song in it called The Devil and the Huntsman. I looked it up on You Tube and some one correlated the lines of the song to scripture in the Bible. I looked up the scriptures and the Word pierced my heart. The other strange event was after I watched it I was on Face Book and something led me to a book, I don’t remember the name of it now but it talked about the Holy Grail and how the stories of King Arthur relate to it. All this is very interesting and really it’s a lot to take in.

The scenes that spoke to me was when Arthur has the sword in his hand. He said the sword controlled him, he didn’t control the sword. In the Bible the Word is referred to as a sword in Ephesians 6:17,  and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God…

As I watched him wield the sword he was in another dimension letting himself go and letting the sword work on it’s own power. I related this to letting go and letting the Holy Spirit work in me. If I could let go of myself and let myself be controlled by the Holy Spirit I could accomplish so much more than what I’m doing alone. God is speaking to me saying what His Word says, you can do nothing apart from me. This allowing and following of the Holy Spirit is a great adventure, like Arthur. He was a king and didn’t know he was a king. We as followers don’t know who God created us to be until we begin searching and looking for our true selves. I read in that book that we like King Arthur stories because we long for something more than what we are seeing and experiencing. King Arthur stories correlate to the searching of the Holy Grail.

I have figured out that all the searching I felt in December has ended up being that I was looking for God’s will in my life. I’m doing a Bible study called I am Loved and today we talked about walking in the light. I was in darkness and she describes that as walking in our own way which is sin. Choosing wrong thoughts and actions, not aligning with God’s character and thoughts and actions. Walking with the Holy Spirit in control is walking in the light.

The Holy Spirit then directed me to watch Rick Renner on You Tube about Spiritual Warfare. He specifically talks about the armor of God and how the Bible is our weapon. The belt of truth is the Bible and without the belt the rest of the armor falls off. He said this was true of the roman soldier’s armor and that’s why Paul said the Word (Truth) is the belt because without it the rest of the armor falls off and leaves you open for attack.

Satan doesn’t want us to know who we really are in Christ. We can defeat him with the knowledge of knowing who we belong to. We can wield our sword ( the Word) against him and be victorious! Those of us who feel like we are nothing or that our lives amount to nothing, we need to get in the Word and start believing truth and not the lies! Arthur didn’t want to accept who he was and I think sometimes we don’t either. But when we finally accept who we really are the power of God comes on us and we can slay the Devil!



Be Saved And Live It Out

l-125575Galatians 2:20,  I have been crucified with Christ [that is, in Him I have shared His crucifixion]; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body I live by faith [by adhering to, relying on, and completely trusting] in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me.

When we are born again our old self is crucified and we no longer live as before but we live with Jesus inside of us, guiding us. We live trusting in Jesus who loves us and gave Himself up for us. This verse makes me want to continuously thank Jesus for what He did. I want to thank God for salvation and for His love. I need to let myself be guided by the Holy Spirit daily. Trust Him! Thank you for salvation and for Jesus and thank you for loving me even when I was far from You.



Scripture reading for today is Matthew 4:8-10 and its where Jesus is being tempted by Satan to bow down to him and he will give him the kingdoms of the world. Jesus said, “You must worship the Lord your God and serve Him only.”

Ann Voskamp says: Today I will thank Christ, adore Christ, bless Christ with my worship because worship is giving back to God what He’s breathed into us.

This temptation of Satan is one that he still does to us today. With all the worldly things out there to distract us and attract us away from wanting to know God and spend time with Him. It brings to mind the scripture about the seed falling where it gets choked out. The Word gets planted but the world prevents it from growing. Matthew 13:22,  And the one on whom seed was sown among thorns, this is the one who hears the word, but the worries and distractions of the world and the deceitfulness [the superficial pleasures and delight] of riches choke the word, and it yields no fruit. This is what Satan tries to do to us once we are born again. He doesn’t want us to live out our salvation so he distracts us from it and attracts our flesh to worldly things. This prevents God’s Word from taking effect in our lives. We have to fight against this with the same scripture Jesus used. We MUST worship God and serve Him ONLY.
