LIFE LESSONS FROM THE BOOK OF PSALM 112:7 (Amp)
" He shall not be afraid of evil tidings; his heart is firmly fixed, trusting (leaning on and being confident) in the Lord."
1. Never be afraid of the attacks from the enemy . Never ! Is an error .why? Scripture abhors it . Eph 2:6 (NIV)"And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus,." You are seated in a place of power and authority.
2. Never be easily moved and begin to panic unnecessarily whenever the enemy comes to attack you spiritually or use a false prophet to intimidate you with fear . Remember ,the Holy Spirit is your comforter , teacher and helper . If he says fear not, who would you rather obey? Him or Satan and all his defeated vagabonds ?. Never be moved . Greater is the one that is in you . Is the truth .Prov 3:25-26 (NASB) "Do not be afraid of sudden fear, Nor of the onslaught of the wicked when it comes; For the LORD will be your confidence, And will keep your foot from being caught. "
3.You need to make up your mind about the onslaught of the enemy ; whenever it comes . Why? see, God first, as too "big" and the enemy too "tiny" , to think , he can triumph over you . Never look down on your God . He is the sovereign Master of the whole universe . Whatever he decides is the final judgement . Final ! Neh 9:6 (ISV) "
"You are the LORD; you alone crafted the heavens, the highest heavens with all of their armies; the earth, and everything in it; the seas, and everything in them; you keep giving all of them life, and the army of heaven continuously worships you." Whenever the enemy comes , see it as an "insult" to your God and deal with them appropriately using the word in your mouth !Amen. Isa 51:16 (Amp) "And I have put My words in your mouth and have covered you with the shadow of My hand, that I may fix the [new] heavens as a tabernacle and lay the foundations of a [new] earth and say to Zion, You are My people."
4. Know one secret today , Satan and his agents are very crafty . His agents are very much like him. If you want to have a picture of who Satan is , observe his agents ."they are like him " lol. I tell you .But God knew this , so he gave us the "spirit of discernment" , to always know , when they are up to something crafty again. This is the key -1 peter 5:8 (Amp ) " Be well balanced (temperate, sober of mind), be vigilant and cautious at all times; for that enemy of yours, the devil, roams around like a lion roaring [in fierce hunger], seeking someone to seize upon and devour.". Don't let his subtlety deceive you . He is so good at it . But again , they cannot escape the Holy Spirit radar . You will always know .please permit me to translate it in my pidgin language "Na them be this " lol. wow.
5. Finally , If you can catch this , it will always help you whenever you are under an attack . "Be fully persuaded". Listen , Jesus finished Satan on the cross . He did a complete job. I mean he totally destroyed all his works .(weapons of war). But this is the gist , he has been given permission to attack you, but not to prevail over you . God will never allow a defeated enemy to celebrate over his own child . He will not! Isa 48:11(Amp). Keep praying , don't give up and you will surely see the end of all your troublers in Jesus name , Amen. Jer 1:19 (Amp) says it better "And they shall fight against you, but they shall not [finally] prevail against you, for I am with you, says the Lord, to deliver you.". The victory /prevailing part of "your" story; God has exclusively reserved for you . So , don.t be afraid . You will surely share your testimony this year in Jesus name , Amen.
I PRAY FOR YOU ; THE NAME OF THE LORD WILL SURELY BE GLORIFIED IN YOUR LIFE THIS YEAR IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS , AMEN.
