BF Homework: Chapter 6

God bless everyone!

This week has included some long conversations with Hubby and some hard looks at our hearts. God never fails. When we want to be free, He will reveal the strongholds in our minds, the emotions and intentions of our heart and yes even the pain. He leads us to take a look at ourselves through the mirror of His Word and not through the justification of our circumstances. It can be hard at times, but so worth it in the end.

This week has been challenging in that aspect-having to confront some things I thought were long ago dealt with. Which brings us to this week's homework assignment.

Warning: This must be a recent situation and beware that if hasn't happened, the Lord may just allow it to reveal something in your heart.


1. Name a specific and recent situation in which you did not have peace? What did it reveal about your heart?


2. List three Scriptures that bring you back into the reality of God when you do lose your peace.


I want to stress that although we enjoy our past victories, let us stay focused on our heart's condition TODAY. Also, when I state "lose your peace" it doesn't have to necessarily mean that you're throwing plates across the kitchen or screaming and cursing. It can be that "ugghh" feeling inside although no visible change occurred on the outside.

So off to some alone time with the Lord and get into His Word. We'll be back here on Monday to comment/link up our finding, thoughts, insights, and encouragement.

Please pray for the study. I noticed that the enemy was not at all happy that so many of us are breaking free and is trying to attack. His tactics are the same discouragement, doubt, and indifference. But he's been defeated by our King Jesus!


7But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us.
8We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair;
9persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.
2 Corinthians 4:7-9

  1. Although I have learned from past mistakes as well as the victories in the Lord...focusing on where I am today and how I can improve based on what the Holy Spirit has taught me is BREAKING FREE!!!
