But God Promised.

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.

  1. Must be the season to shake things up lol. For the last 3 night’s I was woken up at 12:44 am it took me a minute, but I eventually realized it was the Holy Spirit waking me up. So I ended up looking up strongs greek 1244 and it was the word divide as in to distribute an inheritance. Like when the prodigal son asked for his portion of the inheritance and went and squandered it away.. Man God is good lol thanks for the good word 🙂

    1. So thankful for the Holy Spirit!!

  2. Thank you, Tanja. This was very timely. Just this morning I was awakened by a phone call about 5 A.M. and was suddenly thrust into my worst nightmare. I tried to pray, but words wouldn’t come, so I leaned on Romans 8:26. You’re right, we need to be ready, even in the middle of the night! Psalm 91 is such a comfort, and II Timothy 1:7 is my sword for today. I am starting to be able to breathe again, and whatever happens, I know my family is in Good Hands.

    1. Amen. We are to be “instant in season, and out of season.” We need to KNOW the truth in order to be set free. I love that His promises are sure, and God is faithful to perform His Word. I appreciate this encouragement. 💕

    2. Praying for you💜

      1. Thank you for praying! At first I felt like I’d had the stuffing knocked out of me, but running to the Lord (Where else am I gonna go?) I began to have His peace. The stress still comes in isolated waves every now and then, but it reminds me to lean into Him. At first I didn’t know how I would do a speaking engagement Saturday, but I found myself talking about my family’s crisis, and how we can have the peace of God even BEFORE the situation is resolved. (All my other messages have been given AFTER everything is worked out, so this was a step up for me.)
