Hebrews 12:12 – Therefore strengthen the hands which hang down, and the feeble knees, 13 and make straight paths for your feet, so that what is lame may not be dislocated, but rather be healed. 14 Pursue peace with all people, and holiness, without which no one will see the Lord: 15 looking carefully lest anyone fall short of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up cause trouble, and by this many become defiled.
When we walk this earth in the purpose of God we are prone to attacks daily. God’s purpose for us is to have success and prosperous situations and environment in our lives. We have an enemy though. God’s enemy is walking around looking to devour and destroy the children of God. Sometimes we succumb or become the victim of the enemies spiritual realm attacks without even realising it.
We do not even realize it and to be honest we don’t like people pointing this out to us in that moment. These attacks are not the reason for hell. They come and they come at unexpected times ,we need to be on guard. With the tools given to us by God.
The word of God says that we must not give the enemy any holding place in our lives. Deal with your sin do not hide from it. Do not be on the run from the enemy.
God wants us to stand up against sin , face and overcome our giants in our lives. It is not Gods will for his children to run in fear and hide from anything. Paul says to timothy ” Timothy God has not given us the spirit of fear but of power and love and a sound mind”
Fear is not from the holy spirit.
Through fear and shame the enemy operates, Fear is what the enemy tries to instill in us.
The enemy uses the giants in our lives and magnify our problems. His tactic is to instill fear. Do not let the enemy have a hold on you and intimidate you through fear and shame.
Do not tolerate the enemy in your life, because like Goliath it will keep taking territory and taunt you.
The enemy is a liar and he needs to be attacked with truth, by speaking the word of God.
It might be sometimes small things like when we start judging people or when we tell small lies, irritation towards others, partiality, discrimination, racism or having a road rage moment or when we do hurt someone in our lives (thy neighbour) with falsehood or lies, jealousy, envy, anger.
The fear of condemnation can be a giant in our life’s. The voice sometimes “god doesn’t love me”
Its time to say to that Giant I am serving you notice enough is enough it time to speak to that problem or complexity and make it clear that we do not tolerate it in the name of Jesus.
Its in order to speak to your problems and make it clear that in Christ are more than conqueror. Do not run but stand up like David to his problems. We might say that we are not as special as David.I assure you like David we can attack our problems.
The bible saying that we need to guard our heart ( mind and attitude ) and also with this comes our responsibility to do this.
But how. How?
The word of God says that we need to let or allow the peace of God protect and guard our mind. How do you have peace with God. By making Jesus our Saviour and giving our lives to him and having a living relationship with him
Action – Works
God gives you a choice He says in Deuteronomy “I set before you life and death”
Action – make a decision
**Choose life and not just any life a life **Choice that offers life in abundance
**Do not be conformed to this world
**We need to have peace with God.
**We need to live by the spirit not the flesh.
**Salvation ( are we saved )
**Truth if we live in truth then we do not live with sin.
**Gospel ( are we spreading it as Jesus equested us to) or are we the type of people that we do not talk about religion and we don’t like it when others do.
**Word of God do we know this
**Faith without works is dead.
Have zeal for God. Seen a lazy drifting soldier around lately, chances are that they don’t live long.
