God’s people are attacked, oppressed, threatened, accused, slandered, mistreated and harassed by the enemy of our souls. We are well acquainted with our weaknesses. We seek and desire innocence, peace, truth, quiet gentleness, humility and unselfishness. We are not practiced in the ways of the world – craftiness, manipulation and deception. However, we are in a battle, a Spiritual battle, for the souls of our friends and families. We are not unacquainted with the enemy who seeks to kill, steal, and destroy. There is no possibility of a negotiated peace, this battle is to be won, and our King Yeshua Messiah has already guaranteed victory through the cross and by His shed blood.
Nevertheless, we do not see always as we need. “When the servant of the man of God got up and went out early the next morning, an army with horses and chariots had surrounded the city. ‘Oh no, my lord! What shall we do?’ the servant asked. ‘Don’t be afraid,’ the prophet answered. ‘Those who are with us are more than those who are with them.’ And Elisha prayed, ‘Open his eyes, Lord, so that he may see.’ Then the Lord opened the servant’s eyes, and he looked and saw the hills full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha. As the enemy came down toward him, Elisha prayed to the Lord, ‘Strike this army with blindness.’ So he struck them with blindness, as Elisha had asked.” (2 Kings 6: 15-18).
Almighty God is on your side Believer. He watches over you; He is your defense and strong fortress. He has instructed us to ask whatever and anything in His name and He will do it. (John 14: 12.-14). Your deliverance from the enemy is in accordance with His will. He has said, “The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet.” (Rom. 16:20). The ruler and creator of all things, our Father God, will command the sun to stand still, if need be, until the forces of the enemy are routed completely. Call out on your ever-present help in time of need. Have faith in God’s mercy and love for you. “Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. “(Eph. 6: 10-19). God has equipped you and trained your hands for Spiritual battle, against spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. The enemy cannot stand against the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, Yeshua Messiah, and the battle belongs to the Lord.
We praise you Lord God Almighty for your promises and loving-kindness to your servants. You have been faithful to your word and have never let us be destroyed by the enemy. In the midst of the conflict, we look to you and sing your praises. Open our eyes to see your armies arrayed with power and strength, guarding us and giving us the victory in your mighty name.
