Our youngest daughter and her husband have been remodeling their house. Our son in law got the call that the new windows were in, so he headed to the city to pick them up. When he got there, the salesperson found out that the windows were damaged in transit and never taken off the truck. They were returned immediately. He should not have even gotten a call for those windows. Damaged goods are returned to the manufacturer before they even go on the store’s inventory.
The enemy wants you to receive damaged goods. And he wants you to pay for it all. Satan wants to mess up the delivery, force you to take it and hope that you believe it’s what you deserve. He wants you to be confused and in turmoil about your salvation, your walk, your blessings and your future. He orders fear – a huge order of fear – which is actually chains and shackles. If you take fear home with you it will bind you and keep you unable to move in the power and gifts of God’s anointing. The enemy also brings you a load of guilt and shame. They go together and are never used apart. For all guilt brings shame.
Oh beloved, everything God sends is good and perfect and a gift from above. And His orders for you are free! Peace! God gives peace that passes all understanding, so that your heart and mind are guarded! God gives you salvation, so that you don’t have to work and work and work to hope that you can meet God’s expectations. God gives you courage so that fear cannot find room to be placed anywhere on you, among you, in you or with you. God gives you rest, joy, comfort, truth, strength, and oh so much more. Run to God’s Word, your order book, and see what is on God’s order list for you. Read the Word often and highlight the truth about what’s in store for you. Read it again and read the manifest out loud. Whenever the enemy tries to deliver damaged goods into your heart, recite the Word to him. Thank the Lord out loud that you don’t have to take the junk but you can have God’s best!
God loves you and He’s for you. Every gift and ability God sends your way will be good and right and perfect. Rejoice that you have His Word to make sure you take in all He has for you and none of the junk the enemy wants you to load up with. You are blessed, favored, delivered, set free, anointed, appointed, restored, renewed, and destined to build on God’s Word alone for a life of beauty and purpose.
