VICTORY IN JESUS

“The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance [to the full, till it overflows]” ( Jn 10:10, AMP)

It is more than six weeks since I fell and broke my ankle. I have to stay indoors. The devil’s plan was to ‘immobilize’ me both physically and spiritually . But the devil can never control my life. God Almighty is in charge! Nothing happens to me except what God approves. There are many lessons for me to learn this season. The Holy Spirit speaks to me. His Word is my medicine and my food. I am satisfied with God’s Word. I digest His promises! My spirit is rising…

I now have much time to read my Bible and pray. I am a wife, a mother, a grandmother and a pastor. I have the tendency to be busy serving others and forgetting myself.

In this season of my life God is helping me to study my own life in general and to re-evaluate my standing in the faith in particular. This is what I have observed: it is not easy to be weak, sick or incapacitated and to exercise faith in God. It is much easier to preach faith to others than to exercise faith by myself. I have gained a new understanding of the need to fight during the trials of faith. I have gained a new admiration for the believers who are in difficult situations and chose to remain faithful to God. I also have a new appreciation for the privilege of prayer!

The devil attacks with fear and doubt. Both are poison to faith. Jesus said that the devil is a thief. He comes only to ‘steal, kill and destroy’. If you are spiritually passive (the way the devil wants you to be) he steals your joy, kills your peace and destroys your faith. The devil has a strategy. He wants to be a successful thief and a famous liar. He wants me to lose so that he can win! He wants to steal my testimony as a Christian. I should not be ignorant of his ‘wiles’. It means that the devil sees me strong, wealthy and blessed. A thief is attracted only by people who are rich. But the same devil who sees me wealthy tells me that I am poor. The same devil who sees me blessed by God tells me that I am a liability to men. He is a clearly a liar.

I too need a strategy. I cannot fight blindly! To win the battle in my mind I have to submit to the Word of God. I have to learn how to protect my mind against the devil’s lies. I have to learn to guard my heart and my emotions from his flattering and deceptive lies. It is my duty to protect my testimony. It is a battle. The devil is a loser! I am the winner!

I am a child of God! I will fight in faith every day and every moment! My faith is rising! I am getting angry against the liar! I hate the devil! I reject his doubts, his fears and his discouragement! These are his properties and not mine. Even now I declare that God loves me and is still with me! I declare that nothing is impossible for my God to do! I declare that I will not just survive this trial, but I will win this race! My future is better than my past or my present! I declare that I have eternal life and I will enjoy my life! Out of my belly rivers of living waters will quench the thirst of many! Jesus is Lord!

Let’s pray: ‘You evil spirits of fear, doubt and discouragement, I command you to run away from me! In the name of Jesus!’ Dear Holy Spirit please come and strengthen me to fight the good fight of faith! I vow to give You alone all the glory for my healing, for my deliverance and for my victory! In Jesus name amen!’

My dear children (natural and spiritual) be strong in The Lord and in the power of His might! We are not a family of cowards and losers! Not at all! We are more than conquerers thru Him who loves us! We are champions in the field of faith! We are winners and heroes in this race! See yourselves as God in Christ see you! We don’t fight to lose! We don’t fight for fighting sake! We fight from the sure position of victory in Jesus! Do not grumble! Exercise the muscle of faith! The battle is won! I hear the sound of celebration!

Like David killed Goliath, so I will kill the killer! The God who helped me in the past to kill the lion that attacked my sheep, is the same God who will help me in the present to kill the wicked giant! The devil’s hero comes against me with the might of fear, the power of lies and the bullying of discouragement! But I come against him in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ who died that I might live forever! The Captain of my salvation has never lost any battle! He can never lose now. He is The King of kings and The Lord of lords! JESUSSSSSSSS!!!!!! Glory to the Lamb of God who seats on the throne! My God is worthy!

TORY IN JESUS.

    Praying for your quick recovery and healing. We are not ignorant of His evil devices. We have the victory. Pressed down but not destroyed. We are not afraid of those who can kill the body but not the soul. Amen!
