The devil will fight tooth and nail against us to stop us from loving and serving the Lord and from fulfilling the assignments in serving Him to which the Lord calls us as the Bible clearly shows us and as I can strongly attest to from personal experience in life and ministry. The Lord gave me a powerful message to share with you for those right now the devil is coming hard against to try to stop from fulfilling what the Lord has given you to do for Him. If this isn’t your experience right now, perhaps you will be able to put this message to use further down the road following Jesus.
These are the words the Holy Spirit who dwells inside God’s followers spoke to my heart:
SATAN IS TRYING TO STOP YOU.
DON’T LET HIM.
THE ONLY WAY YOU WILL HAVE VICTORY IS IF YOU PERSEVERE.
YOU CAN DO EVERYTHING RIGHT NOW IN THE BATTLE BUT LOSE BECAUSE YOU DON’T STAY THE COURSE UNTIL THE END.
STAY THE COURSE IN EACH BATTLE.
I thought about the message after I wrote it down. Seems so obvious, but I had never truly considered it before despite years of fiery battles in which the devil has repeatedly with all his might tried to destroy my life and ministry.
We can be one breath away from winning a battle and be utterly defeated because we walked off the battlefield rather than endured until we achieved victory!
If soldiers walk off the battlefield before the battle ends, how can they win? They can’t!
Nor can we!
Cry out to the Lord in your battles, friend, for the wisdom, strength, directions, and all you need to win the battles of this life. And don’t forget to give the Lord the praise and glory when you find yourself walking in victory!
Your victories will not come in yourself. They will come in Christ. So look to Him and to the Bible in every battle. And in the strength of Christ for the glory of Christ, WIN!
“For you have need of endurance, so that after you have done the will of God, you may receive the promise: “FOR YET A LITTLE WHILE, AND HE WHO IS COMING WILL COME AND WILL NOT TARRY. NOW THE JUST SHALL LIVE BY FAITH; BUT IF ANYONE DRAWS BACK, MY SOUL HAS NO PLEASURE IN HIM.” But we are not of those who draw back to perdition, but of those who believe to the saving of the soul.” Hebrews 10:36-39
