It's A Spiritual Fight
This has been quite an off-schedule, unpredicatble week for me, and the enemy has been coming against me from so many angles. I have been in some serious warfare these past three days!! Though last evening I felt a bit frustrated, I'm joyful in knowing that God has already given me the power to tread upon the enemy. He is under my feet, and I'm stomping all over his old raggedy head! *insert eye and neck roll* LOL!!
You know, I'm learning that anytime you give God a sincere "Yes" the devil is going to do his best to try to make you regret it, and recant. But today I am serving him notice that his every attack only adds more fuel to my fire for Christ. He only reassures me that I am in line with God's purpose for my life, and motivates me all the more to keep on truckin' in Jesus' name. Silly rabbit!
A couple of weeks ago when my husband and I came home to find our home had been burglarized, I spoke with a friend via email about what had transpired. She said something that had me sending her a virtual hi-five. She wrote, "...the devil needs to know that you belong to God and you will not be bullied, intimidated, or scared away from your purpose because of his schemes." Yes, yes, yes!!!
This is exactly the stance we need to take with the enemy when he tries his darndest to sway us from fulfilling God purpose of our lives. We must declare that NO WEAPON formed against us will prosper, and put the devil right back in his place. One thing I have learned is that he only has as much power in my life as I allow him to have. If I activate the power of God's word and use it against him, though he may frustrate me, he won't be able to destroy me. Amen?
This is my message to you today: Do not sit back and allow the enemy to bully, intimidate, or scare you away from your purpose. Don't fight with the situation, or those around you, because your fight is not in the natural; it's a spiritual fight - "For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms." (Ephesians 6:12)
Put your war clothes on (Ephesians 6:10-18) and go to spiritual battle.
One thing is certain, it's a fixed fight and in the end, God's children always win!
Til we meet again...live, laugh, love!
Peace and Blessing,
