…CHILDREN OF THE LIVING GOD THAT RECOGNISES THE TRUE ENEMY.
Far too often as strangers passing through a foreign land, we are blinded by sight. Some things tend to be smoked screened by the enemy and therefore we have become nearsighted and have forgotten our positioning, once Christ has been accepted as Lord and Savior in our lives here on earth. Or best said, we haven’t exercised our faith enough to realize who we truly are in our Lord. My beloved, we often open many doors through many things we don’t realize and allow the enemy to have a stronghold on our lives that really hinders our walk of faith. The Apostle Paul stated; “There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.” 1 Corinthians 10:13. So indeed it is nothing “new” that the enemy has presented, but merely our willingness to compromise with sin. God knows that we are in spiritual war constantly and it states He will not allow us to be tempted more than we can handle, however, it is us that hasn’t realized the seriousness of this walk of faith, this warfare and the enemy, the captives of those spiritually still in chains, our commission and our positions in Christ Jesus our Lord here and now. Now I truly understand the urgency in the message of Paul in Romans 12:1 and 2; “Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. 2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.” It’s not that our loving God and Father doesn’t permit us to enjoy the life which He’s so wonderfully blessed us with when it comes to families, friends, our jobs and achievements. Things we desire for ourselves and those we love, however, these things can’t be permitted to blind us from our callings and the gifts God has given to perform the task that we were created, called and predestined for in Christ. This truly calls for spiritual maturity, because without the leading of the Holy Spirit, we are almost certain to suffer shipwreck faith. Having said this, therefore let us rise and stand together as an unshakable force in faith created by God representing the kingdom of heaven for a good work here in this “Valley of the shadow of Death” , and grow up in spiritual maturity making our calling sure. Continue to press forward, continue to pray for divine intervention, continue to stand and fight the good fight. The more we realize WHO we truly are and wake up to this awesome calling trusted to us, then we will begin to realize how very important we are to each other and how well loved we are of our heavenly Father who watches over us and protects us from ALL unseen hurt harm and danger, whether seen or unseen. Therefore let us move forward in faith beneath this tent of the body of who we REALLY are in Christ…”More Than Conquerors” that the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob may continue to bless us and supply us with every need in Christ Jesus that we as the body of Christ lack nothing as He, our Lord continue to increase our spiritual growth from faith to faith and glory to glory. I am confident that our God will be pleased to see such a faith from His children. May God protect you, keep you and bless you in everything you do and touch in Jesus name. Amen. “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” SPIRITUAL WARFARE IS VERY REAL.
