We Are At War!

by Kim Boleyn on September 25, 2012

Are you looking for the time when life is more peaceful and everything just smooths out and you can sail along with happiness?  Maybe you are getting toward your retirement years and are looking forward to not having to work at a job anymore.  Maybe you’re looking forward to the time when your children are grown (don’t get me wrong, I know you love your children) and you and your spouse can travel more, or do ministry more, or whatever.  Maybe you are a young person and can’t wait to graduate from school so you can really start living.  (Hang in there guys, you’re in for a bunch of surprises!)

Ever wonder why even when we do reach what we thought would be a peaceful time in our life, that things ALWAYS seem to come up?  Well, this is a reminder -

WE ARE AT WAR!!! 

We have an enemy and his name is Satan.  I have said this before, but it is worth repeating, “Satan is not going to stand by and just let us be blessed without a fight.”  The thing that we don’t get many times is that it is an unfair battle.  When we stand in our authority and move forward by the Spirit of God, we CAN’T lose.  All of heaven backs us up when we stand against the devil.  First, you have God who lives in you.  If God is for you, who can be against you?  (Romans 8:31)  You already win because the devil flees from El Shaddai (God who is our all in all).  Then, you have a host of witnesses along with the host of heaven.  Then, you have the creatures in front of the throne.  When Satan sees you, he sees all of heaven backing you up.

WE CAN’T LOSE!!!

Remember, when the devil is telling you something, the exact opposite is true!  Combat the enemy with the Word of God like Yeshua did after he had fasted for 40 days and nights.  (Matthew 4: 1-11)

I want to encourage you today.  We all go through stuff.  I go through stuff, you go through stuff, we all go through stuff.  But praise God, he loves us and will NEVER forsake or leave us.  This is an awesome and powerful promise guys!  We never have to worry about the devil stealing from us or that God will get angry and throw us away!  Cling to God and ask him to show you how much he loves you.  Go to Him when you need an answer for your life.  He wants to bring you into his presence.  He is molding you into what you were created to be.

Shalom.
