4:8-9 NLT - We are pressed on every side by troubles, but we are
not crushed and broken. We
DON'T COUNT ME OUT!
16:33 These things
I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace.
While going through trials and tribulations we must recognize that the darkest attacks from the enemy will come just before our breakthrough from the Lord. And it's during those dark times that the enemy will come to try you, taunt you, and cause you to doubt if the Lord will ever deliver you.
Why is he kicking our backsides if he has already been beaten?
The answer is that we let him. We don't want to be
outwitted by the devil. That is why we must study and know God's
word. The devil only has the authority we
allow him to have in our lives! Part
of the reason the enemy has been whipping us is because we have
been trying to fight the enemy in the flesh, but the word of God
not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against
powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world,
against spiritual wickedness in high places.
The Lord wants you to stop listening to the lies from the enemy and humble yourself. Pray and seek His face, then turn your back to the devil, lift your voice with praise to Him, and He will hear from Heaven and move on your circumstance.
We must begin to ignore his taunting, accusations and
insinuations. Don't give place to the enemy; don't hold a conversation
Remember what happened to Eve when she held a conversation with
Gen 3:1-5 Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field, which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die.
Ladies, you know we know how to ignore someone when we want to. So, why do we allow the enemy to get into our lives? Think about the time when someone got on your last nerve. When you saw them maybe a week later you walked right past them without speaking. You lifted up your head so high it was a wonder your neck didn't pop. And oh, don't let them try and talk to you when you are having a conversation with someone else! You and I both know you turned you back to them as if they didn't exist!
I know there has been someone in your life that you
care if you ever saw them again.
You wish they would fall off the
face of the earth. Don't
tell me this has never happened to you?
Ok, then I am not talking to you; I'm
talking to the ones that have had to deal with someone like
this. Remember when they made you so mad you slammed
the phone down on them, and said they must don't know who they
messing with. Well
that is what needs to be said about the enemy interfering in
your business. He doesn't know who
he is messing with; therefore you need to show him.
Actions speak louder than words, and faith without works
is dead. Don't
let him count you out!
So, I ask you again, why do you allow the enemy to get
into your business?
Turn you back to him
just like you did the person that ticked you off. Then turn your
face to the Lord and begin to praise
Him for what is going to happen to the enemy on judgment day.
Better yet, begin to praise Him right now for how He defeated the enemy when He died on the cross for you. Have this praise session with Jesus and watch the enemy flee:
I am thankful that the victory the Lord Jesus Christ won for me
on the Cross and in His resurrection has been given to me and that I am seated with
the Lord Jesus Christ in the heavenlies. I take my place with Him in the heavenlies and
recognize by faith that all wicked spirits and Satan himself are under my feet. I declare,
therefore, that Satan and his wicked spirits are subject to me in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ
and I rejoice in Your mercy and goodness Lord.
I am grateful, Heavenly Father, that the Lord Jesus Christ
spoiled all principalities and powers and made a
show of them openly and triumphed over them in Himself. I
claim all that victory for my life this day. I reject all the
insinuations, accusations, and the temptations of Satan. I
affirm that the Word of God is true and I choose to live this
day in the light of God's Word.
In every way I stand into the victory of the ascension and
glorification of the Lord Jesus Christ, whereby all the
principalities and powers were made subject to Him. I
claim my place in Christ this day, and I am victorious with Him over all the enemies of my soul.
out enemy out of your face!
Because of the victory of the crucifixion, resurrection,
ascension, and glorification of Jesus Christ, we do not have to tolerate the
The word says Satan only comes to steal, kill and destroy. Being
that he only comes in our life to steal from us, kill
us or destroy us, why do we entertain him so much?
I will tell you why: it's because we let him.
The thief cometh not, but for to steal,
and to kill,
and to destroy:
We need to resist, turn and lift our faces to the Lord with
praises, and in the name of Jesus, he must flee!
We need to kick him to the curb! But before he goes, we have the
right to DEMAND IN JESUS' NAME, that he return every single
thing he stole from us back to us sevenfold.
Don't let the devil leave with your stuff! We don't have to!
that you have found him out it's time for him to go! Make him
take his mess with him, and DEMAND IN THE
NAME OF JESUS that he restore everything he stole away from you
sevenfold! Satan is a defeated foe. Get your things back!
Begin to confess:
Word says when a thief is found he MUST restore everything that
he has taken sevenfold. Satan the WORD of GOD declares you came
to steal, kill and destroy, and the Holy Spirit has exposed
everything that you
have taken away. Therefore, according to God's Holy Word you
are COMMANDED in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth to RESTORE
EVERYTHING you took away SEVENFOLD.
The name of Jesus Christ
commands you take your hands off of my finances, cars, jobs and
my home right now in the name of Jesus.
Father, your word says that whatever we bind on earth is
bound in heaven; whatever we loose on earth is
loosed in heaven.
Therefore Father, in the name of Jesus, bind all the
strongholds of the enemy that have
been holding back our financial blessings, and in the name of
Jesus loose prosperity in our life
according to your riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
Father we call forth our financial blessings right NOW in
the name of Jesus!
Now do you understand why all those wrestling moves you learned
on the WWF (World Wrestling Federation), didn't
work on the enemy? You thought that when you applied the STONE
COLD STUNNER on the
enemy you had half the battle won.
Oh no! He
saw that move coming. And
then you tried a
combination of the PEOPLES ELBOW and the TOMB STONE PILE DRIVER
to help you flee
from that LAST RIDE move he put on you. You thought you had the
battle won! You
have got to come
He said if you resist the enemy he would flee from you.
So what you must do is remember you are wrestling against principalities,
against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this
world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
So instead of you fighting in the flesh, you must use the
SWORD OF THE SPIRIT, which
is the WORD OF GOD to fight your battle.
The WORD of GOD will do more damage to the enemy than
any F-5 move you could ever put on him! DON'T COUNT ME
OUT! It ain't over until I win!
it's not over until you win! Win in your
diets, jobs, finances, romances, relationships, friendships, families, and life in general!
God wants you to be the head and not the tail, above and not beneath.
You can do all things through Christ that He has called you to
do. You have overcome by the blood of
the Lamb and the word of your testimony! Where you are now is
not the end of the story! Hold your head up high,
straighten your back, speak life into yourself, put some glide
in your stride and go on with your bad self, you mighty child of
God! DON'T LET HIM COUNT YOU OUT!
You must be confident of this that
He who began a good work
in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ
Jesus. That means that what Jesus started in you the day you
gave your life to Him, and you felt confident in your
salvation, He will continue to supply you in that confidence
until you are a finished product!
not over until you have won!
I will close with 2 Corinthians 4:16-18:
That is why we never give up. Though our bodies are dying, our spirits are being renewed
FALL DOWN, BUT WE GET UP!
YOU'RE BLESSED AND YOU'D BETTER KNOW IT
not let the enemy cause you to fear.
MUST NOT GIVE UP!
When things seem difficult, remember you have within you the
power to make things better.
