EXPOSING THE ENEMY
There is an attack that has started to be launched out against the people of God. This will come in a very similar manner to the attack against Elijah from Jezebel after the Mount Carmel victory. (1 King 19:2-3)
Many of God's people has passed through many spiritual battles covering all fronts and at this point, God has given us an assurance of His victory in our heart and spirit. Yet many of His people are still waiting for the physical manifestation of these promises.
As His people continue to press in to the promises of the Lord and as we prepare to map and claim the inheritance and promise of God by ACTS OF OBEDIENCE. It will be at this point in time that the attack will be launched.
THE FORM THAT IT WILL TAKE
This attack will come as thought patterns questioning our integrity or motives. The enemy would throw questions to us with the intention of causing us to focus on our areas of weakness. The enemy would even used words by our love ones and twist it and add sarcastic meaning and colors to them with the intent of making us feel "unappreciated, unloved, unimportant."
The enemy wants to confuse the issue at hand. He is trying to jump ahead of the Holy Spirit after each of these spiritual victories and intends to steal the peace in our hearts and instead is trying to plant fear and discouragement by making us feel and think that " every act of obedience we have just done were not of God but were just the product of our own imagination."
THE WEAPONS OF WARFARE
The Lord is reminding us about what Jesus did when He was tempted in the wilderness. He used the Word of God to silence the voices of the enemy.
We are therefore to dig deep into our hearts and maybe even notes and journals and to retrive and keep handy every prophetic words and impressions that we have received from the Lord and from others and further fortified these with the different Rhema promises from the Bible that the Lord has given to us to claim.
And like Jesus we are to use these as our weapons of warfare and speak these words back to the enemy to silence him.
THE PAST JOURNEY
The Lord has seen all the battles that His people have been through in the past. Those were the seasons of breaking, molding, changing and growing.
THE PRESENT POSITIONING
Like the children of Isreal, we have come out of our desert and God has allowed us to stand and see our inheritance from a distance. It is within our reach and this season He has already started to lead many to step forward in boldness to start claiming these inheritance.
Some have been called to give up old established ministries and to moved forward to plant and start new ministries by faith. Some have been called to move and tranfer and effect changes in many areas which includes work and to some even even actual changing of residences. Some have been called to exercise physical prophetic actions similar to what the prophets in the Old Testament were led to do. Jeremiah was ask to buy a land at the very time when the people are about to be led away into captivity (Jeremiah 32:7).
Many of these actions may even look foolish and impractical outwardly but have great spiritual significance and meaning.
All these are part of God's positioning us to enter and claim the inheritance that He has prepared for us. Every one of these action and decision takes a lot of spiritual exercises of faith and trust in the Lord. And Like Elijah after Mount Carmel, this is where we are most vulnerable.
THE PROMISE OF GOD
The Lord is saying to those who are finding themselves facing these attacks to stand firm in Him.
FOR WE ARE ACCEPTED IN THE BELOVED.
And His recompense and reward is with Him being readied to honor His obedient children. He is preparing a banqueting table in the presence of our enemies. And His anointing oil is ready to be pour down and we will soon begin to see our cups overflows. Surely the goodness and love of the Lord will follow us all the remaining days of our lives and we will be dwelling in the Presence of the Lord forever. (Psalm 23:5-6)
He is delighted with the obedience of His people. He will not allow any of His faithful children to lose or to miss their inheritance and their blessings. He will make sure that all that He has promised to us will be fulfilled.
PRAYER OF FAITH
" Father, we thank you for your word to us this day. And we stand in these promises because we know that they will never fail. Cover your people with a blanket called Perfect Love today and hide us from the attacks of the enemy. Amen!"
A pleasant good morning to you. I just want to encourage you to do what you know God is leading you to do. You may not get a lot of support from even those that are close to you, but once you know that you hear from the Lord, I implore you to obey.
