KEY SCRIPTURE: Matthew 26:67 KJV “Then did they spit in his face, and buffeted him; and others smote him with the palms of their hands”,
Whenever you make a positive stand for God, always tune up for a resistance from the enemy. The devil never goes down without a fight. After the Lord declared boldly that He would be sitting on the right hand of power, and would be descending from the clouds of heaven, the whole of hell broke loose, they started attacking Him. This is how it goes, so don’t be shaken, when you have declared your faith or the truth of God, and everything begins to go terrible against you. In Jesus case, the high priest tore his clothes and said, Jesus must be killed. The soldiers spat on Him, and began to beat him up.
When Moses was sent by the Lord to liberate the Hebrew slaves in Egypt. He went with Aaron to request for the release of the Israelites from Egypt. The King got so infuriated that, he instructed the task masters to demand bricks without giving them straw. (Exo 5:1-12). The king made their burden heavier. Moses did not run away in fear. After Moses had consulted with the Lord, He began to show king Pharoah and his nation that He is the Lord of the universe. Satan will always stir up a stiff opposition, aimed at causing you to give up in such times. Please just know that God cannot deny Himself. He would surely honour His name through you.
Dear brother or sister, your role at such a moment is to hold your grounds and maintain your faith in the Lord. Do not allow the adverse situation to cause you to give in to the enemy. Please understand that every battle for the Christian is the Lord’s. It is always His glory at stake. Your portion is for you to maintain a physical front for Him to work through you. If you give up, or you are afraid, God would have no person to work through.
THOUGHT: YOU ARE GOD’S BATTLE AXE, STAY IN HIS HANDS BY FAITH
2. SATAN WILL RISE AGAINST YOU, BUT YOUR RESISTANCE WILL CONQUER HIM
Isaiah 59:19 KJV “So shall they fear the name of the LORD from the west, and his glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him”.
James 4:7 KJV” Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you”.
