This has been a season of intense warfare in the realm of the spirit. Many of you have been battling the spirit of oppression, the spirit of depression, and the heaviness of the opposition against your very soul. Lie after lie is being thrown at you. Some of you are facing constant accusation from the voice of the enemy. Breakthrough at times seems to be so far away, and yet my dear brothers and sisters there is great hope for greater is He who in us than He that is in the world, (1 John 4:4).
This morning as I sat at my computer thinking about some of these very things that I have been experiencing I sensed the Lord say that He is…BREAKING THE BACK OF THE ENEMY! Although we know ultimately the battle belongs to the Lord, in the midst of the heated battle is so good to be reminded by the Lord of His divine intervention in our lives.
Many of us in this season are being readied by God to move into new seasons, greater depths, even new doors that are opening in the days and months ahead. What the enemy is attempting to harm us with is in fact being used by the Lord to bring about promotion to His people. Take heart fellow saints we are being moved onward and upward!
Any good soldier or officer in time of war, in order to lead others into the battle must know and have experienced the battle for themselves. Many of the tests we have gone through are going to be used as a testimony to the goodness and faithfulness of God. Your TEST will become your TESTIMONY! What you have endured will bring strength to many as they cross the same intensity of trials that you have been through. Continue to stand, fight, and endure as GOOD SOLDIERS of JESUS CHRIST! (2 Timothy 2:3).
Right now let’s declare and decree this over our lives: Lord we rebuke any lie from the enemy that tells us we are not good enough. Lord, when the enemy reminds us of the past and of things that You have already cast into the depths of the seas we will shut our ears to the voice of the accuser. We turn from the enemies attempt to bring condemnation over our lives and those you have saved and redeemed. Despite the fierce attacks we may experience Lord today we choose to stand firm in you, to walk on Your Word and to walk in Your strength. In the mighty Name of Jesus, AMEN!
