Blog fam! I pray all is well since my last post. When we think of warfare we think of missiles, tanks, foot soldiers and many other things. The goal of the war is to dismantle the opposition to the point of surrender. We are all familiar with John 10:10,
“The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”
The devil has declared war and your physical and spiritual life is hanging in the balance. His goals are to steal, kill and destroy everything you hold near and dear. Just like the military, he has devised a plan to weaken you to the point where you’ll do anything to release the pressure. For some of us, he has declared war on our finances. It seems like every time you make a step out of the red, you’re pushed back 10 more. Others he has not only attacked you but your families. The level of conflict from your core supporters is at an all time high and there doesn’t seem to be a resolution. While others the attack has been a mental one. You’re losing sleep, your blood pressure is off the charts and you’re warring within you’re self looking for a solution. I say that it is time to surrender. No, I do not mean surrender to the devil. Surrender all of your issues to Jesus. The second part of John 10:10 tells us that Jesus has come that you might have life and have it more abundantly. Jesus is the ultimate power! There is no one more powerful or mindful of you.
When you’re feeling a financial strain remember Malachi 3:10,
“Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the Lord of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.”
When it seems like your family is unraveling before your very eyes remember Isaiah 26:3,
“Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.”
Lastly, when the devil comes against your mind think about 2 Timothy 1:7,
“For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”
God we come before you today thanking you for the reminder that you have come to give us an abundant life. Thank you for being on our side and guaranteeing us the victory! We speak peace over every situation in the mighty name of Jesus. As we are faced with battles help us to remain in your will. In Jesus’ name, Amen! Be blessed peeps!
