What’s Happening Around The Bend Tallahassee?

Around The Bend Episode 8 – Bobbie Agee

I had a fun talk with Bobbie Agee from This Is Your Life. This Is Your Life is a new program which airs every Tuesday at 7:15 PM on CTN Big Bend TV45.

Tune in early. I’m thinking you don’t want to miss the powerful testimonies that are happening on this show.

That’s what they do.

They simply share what God has done for them and the Holy Spirit does the rest. Have you ever been hard to convince? Usually, it takes most of us a while to be talked into something. Then, if we meet someone who has walked through the experience first hand, we are a little more open to listen.

Well, listen.

Bobbie and I talk about the joy in serving God and following the Holy Sprit on a daily basis. Click below to watch right here on ctnbigbendtv.com.


A Blessing For Warfare

Let’s face it. We will all face opposition. Notice I did not write “the blessing OF warfare.” Here is a proclamation of blessing to Rebekah (Rivka) from her family as they sent her off to be the wife of Isaac.


They blessed Rebekah and said to her,
“May you, our sister,
Become thousands of ten thousands,
And may your descendants possess
            The gate of those who hate them.”

Gen. 24:60 NASB

Moses refers to the Israelites in this way, pointing to the fulfillment of Rebekah’s blessing.

And when it rested, he said, “Return, O LORD, to the ten thousand thousands of Israel.

Numbers 10:36

That was said as a prayer each time the Isaelites camped on a new location while wandering in the wilderness.

Interestingly, Moses also used similar language for the blessing upon arriving and setting up new camp.

“Arise, O LORD, and let your enemies be scattered, and let those who hate you flee before you.”

Num 10:35

You, believer, have been given a blessing through Rebekah centuries ago. It is a little bit of an assurance of war, but is mostly a promise of victory. I know that it takes courage to walk this life out…

But doesn’t it help to know what the odds are before we step out there with our sword? Do not think that the blessings of Israel do not apply to the redeemed in the Savior. He stated it Himself… in the same terms.

I also tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my assembly, and the gates of Hades will not prevail against it.

Matt. 16:18

Those gates of the enemy in our world… the movies, the music, the government, the dainties of junk food… the… the… etc. They do not have to remain open. We were meant to crash them. To prevail over them. Do not dismay. He reigns.

And where does He reign? In our bodies, in our hearts, in our families, and in our assemblies. Don’t be timid. Don’t be shy and simply avoid them. In order to prevail, we are called to charge. We are stormers of the enemy’s gate.


And prevail, you will. Why? It has been spoken. Do not allow the one who hates you to enter your palace. Do not allow the enemies to come near your home. As a matter of fact, Shut every gate with the authority you have been given. If stuck on what to do on a practical level, speak the very words of the scripture at your problem. There’s no other way needed. You are given the Blessing For Warfare.

What gates are open around you? Where does the enemy want to attack? Greater is He that is within you. Be blessed.

There is a time – Encouragement

What time is it? After you look at your watch, ponder the bigger picture as described in Ecclesiastes chapter 3.

For everything there is an appointed time, a time for every matter under heaven: (Ecc. 3:1 – LEB)

I want you to remember that the very path that the sun takes today and the very movements of the wind and the clouds, was ordered at the beginning of time. The moon that you see tonight was meant to be there.

You are meant to be here. Call on your Creator Father. Expect His wind (Holy Spirit) to move you to exactly where you need to be to be close to Him. This is your appointed time? What matters under heaven are you tending? Are you seeking to be closer to Him. That is what the Savior’s desire is.

You were made for Him. You were made for this time. Come unto Him, and He will draw near to you – face to face. Image0997
