KEY SCRIPTURE: 1 Peter 5:9 ” Whom resist steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world”.
When God asked Moses to go get the children of Israel from the bondage of Egypt, he kept going to Pharaoh till he finally yielded. Moses kept going and each time he went, he said to Pharaoh, let my people go Exodus 5:1. The king kept resisting, yet Moses also kept demanding that Pharaoh allowed them to go.
In life nothing is taken on a silver platter. You must keep your persistence. Remember PERSISTENCE BREAKS RESISTANCE. Your persistence will surely cause whatever is resisting you to give way. You must daily raise your voice against that thing. It does not matter what it may be, by the package of abundance of grace on your side you can’t fail. Do not give up. Dearly beloved we live in a natural physical world, yet there are unseen beings who seriously influence the cause of events. You must come to terms with the power that backs you. The great work of our Lord Jesus wrought on the cross that settled every claim of divine justice. The Bible said in Colossians 2:14 “Blotting out the hand writing of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us and took it out of the way, nailing it to the cross”. Our Lord Jesus has met EVERY demand that could make us vulnerable to the devil, past present, and the future
Please get this straight these demons know very well that our Lord Jesus has blotted out every handwriting of ordinance that was against and contrary to us, yet they would attack on the grounds that these things are still opposing and contrary to us. You must not keep your mouth shut. Consistently declare to these devils or beings that Jesus has blotted out everything that opposed and demanded your destruction. Do not give up or stop till you are finally free. Whatever Jesus sacrificed to bring us liberty, is our right. So long as you stand on the word insisting on it, it would be finally delivered into your hands.
Many of us easily yield to the resistance of the enemy and claim God does not want to do it for us. Hei! get your understanding well, if he did not want you to have it, why did Jesus pay for it in the first place?. It is yours, insist on it.
Every blessing that our Lord Jesus sacrificed to obtain for me is mine, and nothing is going to beat me out of it. I will persist and steadfastly oppose the enemy till he gives in to my demands.
Deuteronomy 2:24 “Rise ye up, take your journey, and pass over the river Arnon: behold, I have given into thine hand Sihon the Amorite, king of Heshbon, and his land: begin to possess it, and contend with him in battle”.
1 Peter 5:8-9 ” Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: Whom resist steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world”.
