One of the things I enjoy doing is people watching.
I love people’s faces, because they tell you so much about the person they belong to. But I’ve noticed something lately.
So many seem to have such sad, hopeless countenances and I’m sure it’s because they look at the world around them, or spend time watching the news which spews nothing but fear.
I can understand someone who doesn’t know The LORD looking sad because they haven’t found their hope yet.
But, what’s up with the Christians I see moping around, complaining about all that’s going on? What?
I’m totally shocked by people who don’t know that we’ve been born into The Kingdom for such a time as this!
We have The Holy Spirit living inside of us and the Presence of God in us can change the atmosphere!
As God’s Presence carriers we should be the ones who affect change in our surroundings. We should prayer powerful prayers which shake the devil’s kingdom and put the enemy on the run!
Why do we ring our hands looking at what the enemy is doing?
Prayer is a weapon!
Yes, the devil is roaring because he knows his time is very short, but are we, as Kingdom children, supposed to let him run roughshod over us? NO! NO! NO!!
I actually had a very dear godly woman tell me that if we pray against what the enemy is doing, we’d be praying against the will of God, because the Bible says that these days will come.
God certainly does say that in His Word, but are we supposed to try to help the devil steal, kill and destroy like he’s been doing? We are certainly NOT!
There is still a lot of work to do in the Kingdom before He returns. There are millions left to be saved and we should be praying for their salvation and for the enemy to be silenced and restrained.
We need to take as many people to Heaven with us as we can because that’s all we can take with us!
We need to remember who we are and to Whom we belong and remember that He is always with us and goes before us in anything we do for Him. The enemy will not escape judgement!
We need to be vigilant and sober and fight back against what the enemy is doing. Bombard Heaven with your prayers; tell the devil: “No More! Enough is enough!”
This is a great verse to remember:
“For the eyes of The LORD are on the righteous and his ears are attentive to their prayer, but the face of The LORD is against those who do evil.” 1 Peter 3:12
Be on guard and always on the lookout. AND… keep looking up because your redemption draws nigh!
