19 Jun Know When
When those moments of defeat come into our lives (because they will come) we have to know when to stand firm on the Word of God and let the enemy know no weapon formed against me shall prosper Satan. You are a liar! My Father is the King of all kings and will supply each and every need. I have no need to worry about anything so you can keep your spirit of confusion because that does not come from MY God!
Too many times we allow the enemy to confuse and misguide us. We allow ourselves to fall victim to his tactics when God calls for us to live a victorious life. Living a victorious life means knowing when to say “thank you Lord”. “Thank you Father for this lesson”, too many times the first word we murmur is “WHY”. Instead of pre-occupying ourselves with why God is allowing us to go through something we should be grateful for the lesson that will lead us into a blessing that only He can provide us.
It is no secret that Satan’s job is to kill, steal, and destroy. He does his job proudly and with no remorse. As believers it is our job to fight back with the Word of God. It is our job to use the weapons that God has already provided us with against the enemy when he decides to attack in order to come out victorious. As believers it is our job to know when to say Satan you are a liar and you will not win. It is our job to know when to say Thank you Heavenly Father for each and every lesson disguised as a blessing.
Personal Message from J’LaQueenia
It is imperative that we remember to not allow ourselves to fall into a pool of self-pity when we are experiencing difficulties in life. My mom once told me during a difficult time in my life that as long as I continue to seek God then I am sure to come out on top. Because of this I know that when I am confused the Lord will guide me, when I am burned out the Lord will infuse me with the light of the Holy Spirit and bless me with the strength to continue to pray my way through any difficult time.
Deuteronomy 28:13 And the LORD will make you the head and not the tail; you shall be above only, and not be beneath, if you heed the commandments of the LORD your God, which I command you today, and are careful to observe them.
