What harm could a man bring to me? With God on my side, I will not be afraid of what comes. The roaring praises of God fill my heart as I trust his promises.Psalms 56:4 Passion Translation
Just because you’re battling fear doesn’t mean you have it. I think sometimes when we are fighting something, we automatically think that we have it and just give in to it.
Let me give you an example. Ever fight a cold? You can be taking everything to try to get rid of it, speaking right, taking extra vitamin C, and natural remedies, but the moment you tell someone, ‘I have a cold!’ you give into all that comes with it and you find yourself in bed, covers over your head feeling miserable.
It’s happened to all of us at one time or another with something in our lives. In John 10:10, we are shown that satan has a strategy. He comes to steal, kill and to destroy. We also understand that his most powerful tool is deception. He’s trained in making things look and feel real that aren’t.
But here is our key to victory; the Word of God and the presence of God. When we abide in that place, we rest in the victory that He has already won for us. How sweet is that?! I’ve gone from slave to free the moment I believed His Word over the word of my enemy. He held me prisoner in my mind but now I have the mind of Christ and the battle I fight there is won in the Word. Do you see what I’m saying?
Father, I ask that as this post is read today, you will stir each one into greater revelation. May the lies of the enemy be exposed causing your people to walk in the victory you intended them to have. Psalm 19:14 “May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing to you, O Lord, my rock and my redeemer.”
