“We are persecuted, but God does not leave us. We are hurt sometimes, but we are not destroyed.”
Do you ever feel like life is one big tidal-wave, and you’re at the bottom of it looking up, feeling trapped and helpless, about to be sucked in and drowned by all of your problems, heartaches, and sorrows? Don’t worry, you’re not alone. We all wind up in nasty traps from time to time, and at that moment, we feel like there is no help in sight. God has already taken advance measures, knowing these things would happen. He gave us His Holy Spirt, an instruction manual (the Holy Bible), the Body of Christ, the ability to communicate back and forth with Him whenever we so desire, the powerful name of Jesus (Yeshua), and a voice to speak our faith and victory into existence. Are you using all of the things God gave you to combat the attack of the enemy in your life?
We must stay strong and believe in the face of adversity. If you were truly out in the ocean, and a big tidal-wave came and was looming over you, would you try everything in your power to survive, or would you just sit there, perfectly still, watching it crash down on top of you, drowing you in the process?
God has given us the authority to trample on snakes and scorpions; as it says in Luke 10:19, “Behold, I have given you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall hurt you.”
What are you going to do? Are you going to let the snakes, scorpions, and all of your enemies trample you instead when you have it within you to stomp them and crush their heads beneath your feet? God gave you the ability to overcome them; He never meant for you to bow down and let them beat you up. You were meant to surrender to God, and God alone. If you are surrendering to your enemies instead of to God, then you are living outside of His will for your life, and the ultimate plan He has for you. As long as the enemy prevails, God’s plan in your life can never manifest itself.
Joshua 24:15, “But if serving the Lord seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.”
Amen; I like this Lyn, thank you
YOu’re welcome dear brother! God bless you!
We are more than conquerors through Him who loves us – but it is only as we depend on Him to work in us and through us that we will experience the reality of His victory.
What an amazing God!
