Matthew 6:13 - But deliver us from evil.
THE WORD "EVIL" REPRESENTS THE ENTIRE CURSE OF SIN UPON MAN. "PONEROS", THE GREEK WORD FOR EVIL, CAME FROM THE WORD "PONOS," MEANING PAIN. AND THAT WORD CAME FROM THE ROOT WORD "PENES," MEANING POOR.
TO SUMMARIZE: EVIL-SIN, PAIN-SICKNESS, AND POOR-POVERTY. JESUS DESTROYED THE POWER OF SIN, SICKNESS, AND POVERTY THROUGH HIS REDEMPTIVE WORK ON THE CROSS.
Psalm 23:4,5 - Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil: my cup runneth over.
BECAUSE GOD IS WITH ME, EVERY ADVERSITY I FACE WILL UNFOLD IN VICTORY AS I MAINTAIN MY FAITH IN GOD! THE BATTLE I AM IN WILL SOON BECOME A MEAL TO ME, AN EXPERIENCE THAT WILL NOURISH AND BUILD ME UP SPIRITUALLY.
John 3:6 - That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
IF I AM TRYING TO DEAL WITH GOD OUT OF MY HEAD OR OUT OF MY FEELINGS, THEN WHAT I AM DOING IS TRYING TO DEAL WITH GOD OUT OF MY FLESH.
John 4:24 - God is a Spirit: and they that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth.
