~Get Up Again With The Wisdom You Have Gained In Your Pain ~
~ I Have Already Defeated The Enemy!~
Refuse To Give The Enemy Credit
I refuse to give the Devil credit for anything that happens in my life! He is a defeated foe! Jesus defeated Him 100% at the cross! All He has to use against God’s people are lies! The biggest lie that he tells you is that God does not love you! It took a time of separation with God in my life for Him to teach me who He was. He gave me this foundation. He loves you… period! He loved you so much that He gave His life for you and stripped the devil of His authority, so that you could know that love and so that you could walk in this freedom!
We give the enemy credit for something that He has no more power to do in our lives, when we say “The devil did this and the devil did that!” When all along if you belong to Christ He is your Shepherd and He will lead you down paths of righteousness for His Name’s sake! Anything the enemy does in a Christians life will only cause us to come forth with a greater weight of Glory if we will not believe his lies and give up! The only time the enemy wins is when we lay down and quit! Since he could not take you to hell when you were born again all he wants to do is stop you from fulfilling your destiny!
The Lord Wants You To Get back Up
God wants you to know that He is saying “Get back up again! Go forward again!” He is saying that “this time you are stronger than you were in the last season! This time you will come forth with new wisdom. You will come forth in new strength, and greater faith! This time you have learned the enemies strategies! This trial has only come to bring you into promotion in My Kingdom! I tempt no man” says the Lord!
“But the enemy will try and tempt you in the test, so that you will give up! Gird up the loins of your mind! Yes, gird them up with my word in your mouth and in your thoughts! I am stronger in your weakness, than the devil who has been defeated already! I stripped Him of any authority when I gave my life, and I will be your strength as you arise out of the depression and frustration in which your circumstances have kept you!! It is time for the Sons of God to arise from their pity party! It is time for them to arise from their past fears and rejections! It is time for them to arise out of false humility! It is time for them to arise out of fear of man!
It is time for Gideon’s Army to arise from their defeated thinking and know that I am with them! It is time for my people to be a willing vessel in the earth! Fear not! Do not look at their faces, only go forward, because you already have the victory now!! Now you go execute my word in the earth! Tell those who do not know that the enemies defense has been stripped from him already, that there is freedom for them, and strength for them, and Power in My Name!
Yes, rise up you sons of the Mighty One Of Israel! Rise up and face the giants in the land for they are bread for you and I am greater in you than he that is in the world! I have called you not to live in defeat and oppression, but to take my word into the Land! To live in abundant life! To establish my Kingdom which is Righteousness, joy and peace in the Holy Spirit! I have called you to establish it everywhere that you see devastation! I have called you to colonize the earth with my Glory! It is Christ in you the hope of Glory!!
Now go and represent me in the earth as the ambassadors that I have called you to be! Go and make kingdom citizens! I have called you to teach the nations my ways! Now Go!! Go In my Name and in my Authority! Go preaching ,raising the dead, healing the sick bringing change to all things that are fallen!”
Isaiah: 54:14-17 (CEB):
You will be firmly founded in righteousness.
You will stay far from oppression because you won’t fear,
far from terror because it won’t come near you.
If anyone attacks you, it’s none of my doing.
Whoever attacks you will fall because of you.
Look, I myself created the metalworker who blows the fire of coal and who produces a tool for his work.
And I myself created the looter to destroy.
No weapon fashioned against you will succeed,
and you may condemn every tongue that disputes with you.
This is the heritage of the Lord’s servants,
whose righteousness comes from me, says the Lord.
