Thinking Out Loud:
Believers, if you and Satan are alike, what authority do you have over him?
You cannot bind or take authority over what you are in agreement with.

I heard a man of God said this, and it came back to me today…
“You are not really FREE until you can be free to do somethings but still be able to look at those very things and DENY YOURSELF the right to do them.” ….
It’s true, TRUE FREEDOM is about self control and self worth.
Take the time, reflect on what you just read and ask yourself the question, “Am I TRULY free?”

The safest place to be is in the WILL of Almighty God.
And you know what? This does not exempt you from troubles, but you most certainly will find the GRACE to “shoulder the weight you may be carrying”.
The devil may be fuming, the devil may be raging, but understand NO attack or roar will ever be so great to destroy you or God’s purpose for your life.
We have seen the gruesome killings, the economic upsets, the social and racial injustices, not to mention this pandemic that we are ALL having to deal with and, oh how my heart breaks for the victims of these vicious killings.
The thing is, we can cry about it all we want, we can get emotional about it all we want, but….. until we catch it in The Spirit, we will continue to be powerless and helpless to what is happening in our society and our world.
If we continue to live ungodly and be ignorant of the devil’s devices; we will continue to succumb to the devil’s attacks.
There is a war going on in the heavenlies, and the battle does not even have to make sense. If we are paying attention at all, we would notice the devil’s attacks are not spontaneous.
The devil is always fighting. The attacks just happens to appear greater because the devil knows how to get a reaction out of a reactionary people.
He knows, “if we hit this one with this” or “that one with that”, it will bring forth a certain reaction that will give him legal ground.
This ground can be your family, your finance, your job, this can found even to be you because the more he is able to upset you, the more bitterness and sickness will be found in you.
I will have you know, God has a way of confusing the language though. The wars, the disasters and the different shifts we see in the earth is a result of the war taking place in The Spirit.
If we are in The Will of God, the different attacks should never move or make us fearful.
Some of these very attacks are actually bringing forth the shift some of us so desperately need, and in order to get to that place or become that person, things will continue to happen so that God’s Perfect Will can be accomplished in us and in the earth.
I mean, there are consequences to our actions, and science already taught us that, for every action, their is a reaction…
I will say this, the righteous needs not to worry. For those of us who have done some things and may have a struggle, seek and surrender to God.
God is not waiting, nor is He asking you to get it right before you surrender to Him. He is not asking you to “clean up” before you come to Him, what purpose would He serve in your life, if you had to get it right before you turn to Him.
My friend, God is not unfair nor is He unjust… As we continue to cleave to God, may we find rest, knowing that God is working it all for our good.
Enjoy the rest of the evening.
