Our enemy is very strategic in the way he plots against us. He is a cheap shot, he loves to hit us when we are not looking, even in the middle of the night. Now I am not speaking any death. However, it is important to be equipped and ready for battle at all times (To see more on this click the link to my post Battle Ready here).
The Holy Spirit has brought me to this place of being ready for warfare over and over. Even if God says it once it is important. But, I know that his recent emphasis on our sword being at hand is not only for me.
There are times when the enemy catches us off guard. When this happens, is your sword with you? Is it sharpened? Have you leaned into God’s prescence as he has taken you through training? We need to be ready and filled with the Word of God at all times. Thankfully we do not have to depend on only ourselves for the remembrance of the word. Holy Spirit is more than willing to help! When we are squeezed and pressed in life, God’s Word should come out of our mouth (yep, outloud). We should be ready to slay with the sword!
These few words that I have bolded jumped out at me this morning as I was spending time with God. He is taking about Abraham here…
“He didn’t give him an inheritance in it — not even a foot of ground — but he promised to give it to him as a possession, and to his descendants after him, even though he was childless.”
Acts 7:5 CSB
When the doctor’s report does not match the Lord’s report, tell the devil…BUT GOD PROMISED…
When you are stricken with anxiety and depression, remember to tell the devil BUT GOD PROMISED…
No matter what the enemy tries to throw at you as his firery darts, take up your SHIELD OF FAITH and SWORD OF THE SPIRIT and say BUT GOD PROMISED _____*enter God’s promise here*_______!
We know that God’s word is ACTIVE and cannot come back void. Everything has to bow to the blood of Jesus. We are more than conquerors an victorious through Jesus Christ.
Even when what you can see is not even close to what God has promised, remember WHO has promised. He is faithful and true.
God never breaks a promise.
