Nothing Left to Fear
The Lord tells us “Say to the Mountain move from here to there and it will move.” There comes a time when you need to quit talking to God about the mountain in your life and start talking to the mountain about your God. Proclaim His power, affirm His faithfulness, stand on His word, cling to His promises. Goliath held an entire army captive through fear, using intimidation, which is how our enemy operates—the Devil prowls around like a roaring lion, but the important word is ‘like’. He’s an imposter, Jesus is the Lion of Judah and when He roars everything is shaken. All authority in heaven and on earth is His. Therefore, as His children we should remember: If God is for us who can be against us.” “Greater is He that is in you than He that is in the world. “
Remember what Jesus did when He was confronted by Satan in the wilderness? He did not merely defend Himself against Satan’s arguments, He went on the offensive using scripture. We should follow Jesus’ lead and shift the scenario’s we find ourselves in and embrace the victory God has already won. In our hellish situations remember the Lord’s words, “I will build My church and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it.” As members of His church we belong to Jesus and so do our battles. Gates are defensive measures which indicates the church is on the offensive.
Our battles are fought in the prayer closet. When the enemy attacks we fight through our knees—where the battle is won or lost—from our knees is where God gets engaged.
When God was ready to enact a great freedom for His people in Egypt, the Pharaoh arose—just like the little Pharaoh’s who get in the way of what God wants to do in our lives. We all have impossible people in our lives. So, you can argue with them in your mind, resulting in a turmoil laden mind, OR turn them in to a catalyst for prayer. Imagine if every time you got angry you converted that thought—person-circumstance into a prayer.
We don’t have to live in fear of the enemy’s attacks. The more opposition we experience, the harder we pray and the harder we pray the more miracles God does.
