Not everything is an attack of the enemy...
After working in ministry for many, many years, one of the things I hear people saying very, very often is, “Im being attacked..
“This is an attack of the enemy!”
We have to stop giving the devil credit for everything !
I even recently heard a young woman say that “I plugged my phone in all night long and I woke up and it was not charged… The devil just keeps messing with me!”
That’s not the devil.. that’s a bad phone charger!
On this side of heaven it seems that we can make the enemy out to be a pretty big deal... and I am certainly not discounting his plots and plans… He does prowl around seeking whom he can destroy…we must guard our hearts, that is for certain!.. But...
When we magnify our God and fully comprehend that he is well able to brilliantly handle any and all darts the enemy launches our way, with ONE WORD OF GOD at just the mentioning of the name of JESUS , the enemy has to flee!
IT IS WRITTEN!
It’s already finished… The enemy has already been defeated, so we must look at the enemy through this lens… through the lens of heaven… And what things actually look like from God’s viewpoint... What could the enemy possibly do to us..?
WE MUST REMEMBER, the enemy is the father of lies!!!
We have to stop believing these lies, he is not omniscient, he’s not omnipresent, he doesn’t see all and know all like our loving Father does… we have the Holy Spirit living in us ! HE IS EVER PRESENT HELP IN TIMES OF TROUBLE!
The devil only knows what we say, he only knows what we declare, he only can mess with what comes out of our mouths and what we declare about ourselves and our situations… By speaking negatively and declaring these things over our own lives, we are essentially giving him a foothold… An opportunity… to take what we have said and run with it!
God has ALREADY equipped us with all that we need to stand strong against it all, and we have the power to resist him at the onset… Then, why do we even worry at all ? The enemy is vastly more afraid of you and the Word of God that comes out of your mouth than you are of him ...
We give him way too much focus and presence in our lives… But I believe when we are actually in Heaven with our loving Father and look back, we will say,” Is that all he is… That’s who we let mess with our lives all the time?”
We will see that he is absolutely nothing… Just a squeaking, murmuring voice that we have the choice to believe or not!
Everything we need is already ours, bought and paid for by the blood of Jesus Christ… Your healing, provision, restoration, and salvation, have already been nailed to the cross… Done! Bought and paid for!
Let’s spend more time believing what God has said and what Jesus has ALREADY done for us and all that that means for us instead of believing the enemies lies… Either way, you have to have faith in one direction or the other… Let’s choose faith over fear!
Fear is nothing more than false evidence appearing real!!!
God is so so much bigger and he cares about the things that we care about.
We have complete authority and we have complete peace that only comes from God… We are to walk in that peace knowing that God will never leave us or for sake us… NEVER!!
So in this world where apparently it seems that everyone gets a trophy when they have not always earned it… Let’s stop handing out trophies to the devil and giving him credit for things he hasn’t
Instead let’s glorify God for the things he has done!!!!
God’s love is perfect, powerful, sustaining, redeeming, vindicating, peaceful, and God loves you more than you could ever comprehend!!
If you listen carefully to all that he says I will be an enemy to your enemies oppose I will oppose those that oppose you

Five of you shall chase a hundred, and a hundred of you shall put ten thousand to flight; your enemies shall fall by the sword before you.” Leviticus 26:3
