Have you ever felt as if the enemy is tryig to dissuade you, distract you, or keep you from persuing that which you know is your innevitable and assured future. You are called to be unshakable, immovable, settled in the spirit, with the fullest assurance of confidence
trusting that God is able to deliver you as well as Deliver to you, all that is required!
The enemy will try to distract you. How do we know this? Well, did he not attempt to do this to Jesus, he went so far as to tempt him when he was in the wilderness. Are we not in the wilderness, on a mission, strangers in a foreign land?! Yes, we are!
Just as Jesus did, we need to respond back with the words that Christ Did, the Holy Word of God. "…Get behind me, Satan! You are an offense to me for you are not mindful of the things of God, but the things of men."(Matthew 16:23)" It is written, "Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God."(Matthew 4:4) Away with you, Satan! For it is written, ‘You shall worship the Lord your God, and Him only you shall serve."…(Matthew 4:10 ) We need to have the MIND of Christ, which He says he will give to us! All we need do is ask and receive! 1 Corinthians 2:16 For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.
Dealing with the enemy?! Well dont forget, He is under our Authority, this was secured and issued to us by Jesus through His work on the cross. We should respond back with similar words that Jesus used to thwart and crush the enemy. We must be firmly fixed and deliver our promises to the spoken and the audible (afterall, the enemy is the prince of this air, BUT our heavenly father is the Alpha and the Omega, and Jesus, the KING of all, His word supercedes the air that might carry it)
We have to remember (as a dear Sister in Christ reminded me last night) we are actively enrolled in a battle here, we are soldiers for the LORD! Never forget you have a mission, a purpose and have everything you need (at your disposal) do not set your armour down. Bind the word of the Lord upon Your heart, they will be like arrows stored in your quiver!
Deuteronomy 11:18 Therefore shall ye lay up these my words in your heart and in your soul, and bind them for a sign upon your hand, that they may be as frontlets between your eyes.
1 Peter 2:11-12
Psalm 127:5 Happy is the man that has his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate.
for he cannot deny himself.
