…lies not within the power of men, but in a risen Lord.
“Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This is the word of the LORD unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the LORD of hosts.” Zechariah 4:6.
How long must we suffer defeat? How long will it take for us to wake up and realize that this divine spiritual battle is very real and wages war against our souls? The LORD said to Satan, “From where do you come?” Then Satan answered the LORD and said, “From roaming about on the earth and walking around on it.” Job 1:8. Our enemy knows us all too well, perhaps better than we do. He (Satan) also knows scripture better than most of us if not all of God’s word, however, what he doesn’t know is the heart of man only the mind based on us following after the things of the flesh and its desires. Family, this is why we have so many scriptures of examples and fore-fathers of faith that directs us through these land-minds of bear traps set up by the enemy, because (1), without the Spirit of Christ we are sure to suffer defeat and stand condemned, (2), without the Spirit of Christ we could never grow up in “spiritual maturity” to distinguish right from wrong to walk victoriously and overcome the enemy in this life, and (3), we need to wake up and realize who we truly are in Christ what we were created to do while on this earth for the short time we are here. There is a solution…Christ Jesus our Lord and King. Having that Spirit deposited within you begins your journey to victory. The key…Christ in us gives us that authority for our commission as well as that grand love for humanity and that humility that is needed for the Spirit of God rest upon us to carry out the works God has for us individually to complete through Christ Jesus our Lord, Amen. So the real keys here are LOVE and HUMILITY…everything else shall follow…I promise. Family, I say this with all the love the Lord has placed in my heart for my brothers and sisters in Christ that I haven’t yet reached this “maturity” spiritually, though I strive to do so as God has given me revelation to some of these things I share. I have suffered much shipwreck faith during my years of learning how to walk by faith and not by sight, and til this day, I strive praising the Lord for every defeat, victory, lesson learned and blessings in Christ, for this shows me that the hand of God continues to be with me, because this inner man continues to call out in power and have such a deep longing to be part of this glorious kingdom of our Lord. So I will press on in faith as I encourage my brothers and sisters to do the same, and permit not the enemy to be victor over you, for He that dwells within you is so much greater than he that is in this world. Amen. Separate the illusion from the things that are real, and practice to learn the difference between having a form of Godliness to growing to spiritual maturity…,for these remain…FAITH…LOVE…HUMILITY…HOPE, with these we can never fail and will ALWAYS come out victoriously. Amen. May the God and Father of us all watch over and protect you in everything you do and touch as we walk from faith to faith and glory to glory in Jesus name. Amen and God bless.
