Last Friday I received the most unusual telephone call of my career. As I answered the phone the man on the other end of the line said, “This is US Customs and Border Protection. We have a man here who says he is attending your national meeting…” He gave me the man’s name and after investigating it with the national committee chairs in my state we were all amazed that the detained man was lying. He was attempting to get into the United States illegally and was using this national meeting held in our state to get through. Fearful thought that an enemy is reading anything on the internet to find a way to lie their way to gain entrance.
Oh beloved, God speaks truth this morning. The enemy will try any means whatsoever to get through to your heart and mind. But I AM that I AM has set a seal on your heart and a watch on your mind. He has given you His Word to live by and His Spirit to speak to your heart. You can discern the lies and keep them from entering your God given territory. God is your border protection! You are the agent of this divine protection! You are stronger than you can imagine through Christ! You can speak to the lies and detain the enemy from taking ground. Don’t believe the lies. Check it out. He will lie about anything to get through. But God’s truth will prevail in your life. It’s not time to cower in fear that the enemy will cross over. It’s time to stand for the right and watch the enemy be shackled by the words of truth that leave your mouth!
God loves you and He’s for you! What a wall of protection He gives to all His children! You are thoroughly furnished to route demons and stand secure. You are perfected in His sight and He loves you. Your boundaries fall in pleasant and secure places as you live thoroughly and rightly handling the Word and standing firm in the Spirit of the Lord!
2 Corinthians 6:7 We faithfully preach the truth. God’s power is working in us. We use the weapons of righteousness in the right hand for attack and the left hand for defense.
2 Corinthians 10:4 We use God’s mighty weapons, not worldly weapons, to knock down the strongholds of human reasoning and to destroy false arguments.
Zechariah 10:2 I will strengthen them in the LORD and in His name they will live securely,” declares the LORD. NIV
