“Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the LORD thy God, he it’s that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.” — Deuteronomy 31:6.
Once you desire to grow closer to God and develop an intimacy with Him, you‘ll notice that the attacks of the enemy will intensify against you. At times it seems like the more you pray, praise, and try to walk uprightly, the hotter the fire and the stronger the waves around you. What should you do? Just keep on praying, praising, rejoicing, trusting, and depending on the Lord. Take hold of your weapons.
Remember we’re in a war. Use the word of God, the blood of Jesus, and the name of Jesus, and use your authority to destroy all the works of the enemy.
Have you been worrying, complaining, doubting, and not trusting God? It’s time for a change! Rise up and take your stand! The battle isn’t yours but the Lord’s. Remember that God has promised not to give us more than we’re able to bear. You’re only going through, you’ll not go under. Even if your present situation was meant for your evil, allow God to turn it around for your good. Remember, “No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD” (Isaiah 54:17).
Prayer: Father in the name of Jesus Christ, we pray for all those who are reading this devotional today. Lord you know each one by name and you know the situations that they are facing at this time. We pray that they will surrender all to you and allow you to take full control of their lives. We pray that they will seek you first and your kingdom so that all things will be added unto them. Help them to cast every care on you this day and realize that you are more than able to fix every situation because you are in control, in Jesus name amen.
