The end of 2013 and the beginning of 2104 was the worst time in my life. After my only daughter, went home to be with the Lord on December 30th, 2013, the enemy showed that he is true to character. He slithered in like a strong flood from every side to attack me while I was at the weakest point I've ever been in. He wanted to destroy me, but once again he overlooked the fact that my Father is God and he underestimated the fact that my Father God is true to His Word and character as well. I was hurting. I was weak, and the enemy sought to destroy me. But God...
I love how God loves us. Because He loves me God shielded me from things that transpired that He knew that I could not have handled at that time. They would have caused me to destroy my own self. That was Satan's plan. See, if you are in Christ, without God's permission Satan cannot harm you, but he can make you harm yourself.
In life, whether we are Christian or not we will have trials and tribulations. To those of us under the Covenant, God has promised that when the enemy is plotting against us He will protect us and shield us from hurt, harm, and danger. For those of you who are not under the Covenant and have not accepted Christ, know that it is the prayers of the righteous and God's mercy that is sustaining you. However, it is time for you to make a decision.
Psalm 3 is a wonderful reminder that God has HIS CHILDREN'S backs. As His child, there is no need for you to fight anyone. Your fight is not with them anyway. Your fight is spiritual.
“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood [contending only with physical opponents], but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this [present] darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly (supernatural) places.” ― Ephesians 6:12 (AMP)
Satan is a spirit, so he is able to convince people that he is not real because most people cannot physically see him. Since he is a spirit he has to influence people to do his bidding in his attempts of destruction. Usually, the people he uses are those who on the surface appear to be close to you, but their heart is far, far from you. Some are aware of what they are doing and some don't.
But God who is Faithful, Trustworthy and True to His word stepped right into the midst of Satan's attack of destruction and quickly began to orchestrate miracle after miracle for me and my sons. Oh yes! God showed Himself strong on our behalf! THE LORD IS A SHIELD AND A PROTECTOR, not because I am so strong or faithful. Remember I said that I was weak and at my lowest. My daughter had just died, but because God is faithful
The Lord spoke to me and said “Stand Still. Be quiet, let Me handle this. I am your Rock. Stand in Me Your Rock” . Yes, the Lord still speaks today, so don't let Satan's instruments tell you that He doesn't. No matter what you are going through today, look to the Lord God. Just like He has shielded and protected me and countless others He will do the same for you.
David said in Psalm 3:3, “But you, LORD, are a shield around me, my glory, the One who lifts my head high.”
He said in Psalm 18:2, “The LORD is my rock, my fortress, and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.”
And in Psalm 28:7 he said, “The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and he helps me.”
David was able to testify of this because He, like me, came to know that this is true about the Lord God. You can trust God and His Word. If you would just take some time and look back over 2014, you will see just how faithful God has been.
Let this sink in …
NO WORD FROM GOD WILL EVER FAIL. It doesn’t matter that some buy into the lies of Satan that men wrote the bible to control us, or that Christians have bought into a lie. I am a living witness that the Living God is True and Faithful to His Word. God loved us so much that He sent His Son to pay the penalty and die on the cross for our sin. Do you know any living person that loves another so much that they would send their child, their only child to pay the cost of someone else’s wrong? Would you pay the cost for someone else’s wrong? I want you to really think about that kind love and then I want you to receive it.
God has been showing me over and over this year just how faithful He is to perform His Word. He has also been showing me that the Clarion Call has sounded. The day of Jesus’ return is nearer than we think. As I look back over the end of 2013 and the beginning of 2104 I am amazed at how I got through it. I can truly say if it had not been for the Lord who is on my side I don’t know where I would be.
Beloved, Satan is diabolical and he is not a respecter of persons. If he attacked me when I was at my weakest point he will come for you too. He is relentless in his goal to destroy every person on earth.
Today you may be enduring a diabolical attack, but take your shield of faith and praise the Lord from the well of your belly. Let the Word God spoke to me speak to you:
“Stand still. Be quiet, let Me handle this. I am your Rock.
Stand in Me, says the Lord Your God.
Focus on God's plan for you. His plan for you is good, not evil. He has not forgotten you. Your walls are continually before Him. It may look like you are in the midst of a Tsunami, but you are not! You are in Christ, the Solid Rock! Think about the storms and floods that have come in the past and you thought you would drown. God stopped each one of them, didn't He? You did not drown. You may have been gasping for breath, but you were able to breathe in His Breath of Life. His power sustained you. God has already provided an escape out of that storm that you are in. Praise Him today for breakthrough! He is your burden bearer and heavy load sharer. He is your Savior, protector and deliverer, the author and the finisher of your faith. God blocked Satan's diabolical attack on me and He will do the same for you.
For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord
shall be saved. ̶ Romans 10:13
For those of you reading this who don’t know the Lord as Savior, what is keeping you from being saved today? The Clarion Call has sounded, so I know that the Spirit of God has been addressing your heart recently to repent and you have been pushing Him away. How long will you ignore the voice of God?
This is a serious matter and I will not sugar coat or mix words. The bible says, that if you die having rejected God's free offer of salvation (Jesus Christ) you are going to hell!
People don't end up in hell because they are bad people. People don't go to heaven because they are good people. People end up in hell because they reject the sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the Cross. People go to heaven because they believe in Jesus and place faith in the sacrifice He made on the Cross. This goes for young and old. Your response of faith right now opens wide the door to forgiveness and peace with God. As the Spirit of God is speaking to you, will you come to Jesus or will you continue to turn Him away?
Before Christ went to the Cross God tolerated man’s past ignorance, but now He commands everyone to put away idols and worship only him. Make the decision and come to Jesus. He knows you have questions and He will answer every one of them as you come to know Him. He will help you live a victorious life in Him and His Word, but make the decision now to call on Jesus and ask Him to save you.
