There is an enemy at my door. It is coming in the form of flesh and blood but I am too wise and know that I don't wrestle against flesh and blood.
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. .
This enemy is trying to kill and destroy. It has come this week and has frozen us in place ~ trying to keep us bound in fear. Trying to destroy who we are, what we are and what we stand for, trying to discredit us. Trying to change our very being. We are just being added to a string of others who have walked before us. Any time you try to stand for God and do right the enemy~ the father of lies will try his best to knock you out of the race as a believer.
So what do you do when the enemy knocks at your door? This woman of faith with not take this lying down. I will enter my "war room." I will spend my every waking moment in that place where battles are fought in the HEAVENLIES. I have been here before and watched God fight battles. I will fight this battle on my knees. I will pray and fast. I will fight with my sword~God's Word. I refuse to get shaken. I refuse to let that demon come inside. I refuse to be prey to the attacks of evil. I will pick up my shield of faith.
NO matter how tempted I am to fight in my humanness~ in retaliation and destruction. I will not be tempted to fight this in my own strength. I will not get bitter with an unforgiving spirit. I will pray for my enemies and I will bless those that curse me.
I will let God fight my battles. This battle is not mine but the Lord's. I am nothing on my own. But to God, I am His child. I call Him Father. And My Heavenly Father is watching~ He sees and He knows. I serve the same God as Jeremiah served.
But the is with me as a mighty terrible one: therefore my persecutors shall stumble, and they shall not prevail: they shall be greatly ashamed; for they shall not prosper: their everlasting confusion shall never be forgotten.
So give us a minute or two~ we are picking ourselves up. Then we will carry on walking humbly with our God. We will continue to live out our faith ~ over fear.
He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?
But as for you, ye thought evil against me; but God meant it unto good.. Genesis 50:20
