WARFARE PRECEDES PROMOTION
Many of you have felt a vehement wind of accusation come against you. Some of you have felt like you’re suffocating, or drowning.
Satan is familiar with your fears and weaknesses and he is trying to breathe his lies of death to your dreams and destiny. Don’t let him play on your fears or weaknesses.
Run into the presence of God. His strength is made perfect in your weaknesses. This will be your strongest season!
Satan will always try to suffocate the word God gave you with doubt, unbelief, and a myriad of cares and troubles. He wants the pain and sorrow to choke out the truth of what God has said.
He’ll always try to get you to rehearse your pain over and over until any memories of the victories God has given you are erased from your heart and mind. Don’t rehearse your pain, start rehearsing your victories, and declaring the TRUTH of what God has promised, regardless of what you’re currently seeing or feeling!
He’ll always lie to you and tell you God doesn’t care about you or your circumstances. He is a liar!
He’ll always try to get you to blame God for your circumstances, instead of thank God IN your circumstances, knowing that He is going to use it for your good!
He’ll always try to get you to believe God has abandoned you. That His promises cannot be counted on, or they’re not for you because you are struggling. He is a liar!
If he can’t get you to turn away from God and blame Him, he’ll always accuse you of sin, magnify your mistakes, and tell you that you deserve to be sick, bound, oppressed, because you’re such a sorry Christian. You’re not worthy to be used, or to go to the next level.
He’ll always tell you that your problems are to big for God to solve, or to small and that you’re wasting God’s time. He has bigger and better things to do than help you. He is a liar!
He’ll always tell you that your prayers are not heard, won’t be answered, and that you’re wasting your time praying, being persistent, and waiting around for God’s timing. He is a liar!
What he fears most is when you say, “devil you’re a liar. What He said is true. I trust God. I may not be able to avoid your fiery darts, but I have a shield of faith and I WILL EXTINGUISH THEM WITH IT. I’m not quitting. I’m not giving up. I’m going for the gold. I embrace His fiery trials and I’m coming out pure gold.
“Quit” is not in my vocabulary. See, He gave me a finisher spirit. He gave me HIS SPIRIT! He disarmed you at the cross, defeated and overcame you, and gave that same power to me. I’m not waiting for the victory, I’ve already got it.
Devil, just the fact that I’ve got your attention, proves that I’m a threat to you. You can’t stop me, you can’t block me, and you can’t keep me from what God has for me. I bind you, render you impotent, and command you to flee in the name of Jesus!”
My loves, God loves you, and satan hates and fears what God loves. God is watching over His word to perform what He has spoken. Don’t waiver in unbelief.
Your promotion is at hand! Gird up the loins of your mind, put on your helmet, breastplate, and belt of truth. Pick up your sword, and shield of faith. Stand up in your shoes of peace and FIGHT! You’re a victor and not a victim. You’re not overcome, you’re an overcomer.
The greatest battles always come before the greatest blessings! You’re about to be blessed and promoted! ONLY BELIEVE!
