When you are saved, when you have healed from something thanks to the Lord or when you are making spiritual progress, the enemy attacks you even more. When you are saved, there is a bridge between you and the Lord that is put in place. When you are healed, there is a new structure in your life that removes the pain and the suffering and that goes over them. When you make spiritual progress, your walk with the Lord is stronger and you are walking on a powerful and holy ground. The enemy doesn’t like any of this and he wants to break it all. He wants to break the bridge to your salvation. He wants to break the healing. He wants to break your progress. He wants to break you. He doesn’t like to see you standing praising the Lord and rejoicing in His glory. The enemy is here to steal and he will do whatever it takes to steal the blessings of the Lord in your life. Don’t sit back and relax just because the Lord has blessed you tremendously. Praise Him for the blessings and remain spiritually alert. Don’t live in fear of losing what you have though. Live in hope that God will protect you and continue to bless you. Be vigilant and make sure that you have closed all the doors where negative thoughts can enter and where doubt and fear can come in. That is why it is crucial to stay in the Word of God and to stay encouraged in Jesus. Jesus conquered the world and He conquered everything bad that will ever come your way. Let me say this again. Jesus conquered everything bad that will ever come your way.
Stand tall and stand on the holy ground of the Lord. Have Him as your foundation. Let Him be your source for everything. He is faithful and He will never let you down. You see, when you are going through an ordeal, the enemy wants you to think that the Lord is not faithful and that He won’t be able to help you. It is a lie. Rise above the circumstances and the lies. Climb into the Word of God and stay there. Your current ordeals might be horrible but the Lord is greater and there is something very amazing coming your way if you stay in faith. Things are going to turn around and blessings are going to be poured into your life in an unprecedented manner. The enemy doesn’t want you to believe that. He is trying to steal your hope so you don’t trust Jesus. Take back the narrative by abiding by the Word of God and giving God the pen again. Do what the Bible says. Rejoice in all times because the Lord Jesus is your Savior. When I was going through a difficult time the other day, the Holy Spirit told me during prayer time that praising the Lord was how I was going to win the battles. I do it frequently but when things go wrong, I pause and think over things just like anyone else until the Spirit pulls me out of my state of misery and sheds light on my situation. His light always shows that greater is He that is in me than the devil that is in this world.
You are going to make it through these trials, friend. The Lord is backing you up and He is staying with you. Focus on celebrating Him. Don’t dwell on your problems. Dwell on the Lord. Lte Him be your passion again. Find ways to lift Him up during the day. Speak against the lies of the enemy. Rebuke the ordeals and refuse to accept them. They might be here for a moment but they are on their way out. They are not staying. In Jesus’ name they are being forced out of your life as you stay in faith. Your faith is kicking them out. Your praise is giving them the boot. The confession of your trust in Jesus is deleting them from your life. When you are going through ordeals, you are a victim of the enemy and that should not surprise you. It shows that God is doing great things in your life. Keep your eyes on what the Lord is doing. When you are going through ordeals, you are equipped to face them and to overcome them. Remember that truth. Anything bad that comes your way cannot destroy you because of the greater One that lives in you. That is what you should believe and what you should keep in your heart. There are blessings that have a set date and a set time to be delivered in your life. They will show up and they will show you that God is still in control. Stay strong today. Stay in the peace of the Lord. Nothing is impossible to God and God is with you all the time. May God bless you and protect you and remember that He will always love you!
