Things I’m thankful for are now enhanced in my life. Especially hearing my husband pray. Whether blessing the meal, circling up with friends or asking God for something specific, those prayers are wonderful. Someone dear to us needs a touch from the Lord and when Danny found out about it here’s what he said. “Well God healed me so I am going to ask Him to give her healing too.”
I truly believe the enemy was out to get us both. But he failed to get either of us. This wasn’t Danny’s time to go home to heaven. And when it is time it will be because the Lord has called him home, not because the enemy was successful in any endeavor he attempts ever.
Oh beloved, even when you are walking through the valley of the shadow of death, you have no need to fear any evil. God is with you. Whether it’s storming or calm there is an enemy who is after anyone he can get hold of – to destroy their witness, their testimony, their calling and ultimately their life. But he’s no king, he’s no ruler, he’s not sovereign, nor is he omnipotent. Good news to remember when faced with life’s challenges. You aren’t owned by the enemy nor are you under his jurisdiction.
God says this morning “You are Mine. When you pass through hardships I’m with you. When you face the flood of sickness, discouragement, rejection – I will not let you drown. I AM that I AM. No other force of the natural or supernatural can overthrow My government and you are under My jurisdiction. Don’t fall for his lying lies for the enemy wants to get you in your mind first. But you have the mind of Christ. You’re never hopeless, helpless or defenseless in My Kingdom. Even your weakness is used by Me to show My own strength in your life. I will comfort you with the My rod and staff – guiding, directing, protecting and keeping you wherever you go. I’ll even use you as My mouthpiece in the midst of your suffering to share the Gospel, give a word of encouragement, bless others and teach you how to walk fearlessly so that the world will know that I AM Lord. Even if others throw you under the bus or desert you – I will be with you always, even to the end of it all.
God loves you beloved. He’s for you. He will never leave you and neither will He forsake you. You can rejoice in this present situation, pray with fierce faith, watch for His answers and live with complete joy. The power of God within you will show forth just when you need it and you will praise the Lord and live without fear all because of Jesus and the wonderful grace He bestows.
I John 5:4 – 5 for everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith. Who is it that overcomes the world? Only the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God.
I Corinthians 15:57 But thanks be to God, Who gives us the victory [making us conquerors] through our Lord Jesus Christ. AMP
Psalm 68:20 God is to us a God of deliverances; And to GOD the Lord belong escapes from death.
Hebrews 2:14-15 Because God’s children are human beings–made of flesh and blood–the Son also became flesh and blood. For only as a human being could He die, and only by dying could He break the power of the devil, who had the power of death. Only in this way could He set free all who have lived their lives as slaves to the fear of dying.
