35 A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good things, and an evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth evil things.
Today’s Inspiration: Jesus says: Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation and every city or house divided against itself will not stand. Matthew 12:35. Division and team disunity are the strategies of Satan meant to destroy God’s plan of success for His people. This strategy is not uncommon and he used this method to slow us down or distract us from the call. It’s a demon of infirmity meant to torment and harass us at every opportunity. We need to cast out demons by the spirit of God so that the kingdom of God will prevail.
Unforgiveness is another common strategy of Satan meant to hinder our progress. It is disastrous and enslaves us. Therefore, do not allow Satan to harass you, torment you that you can move to no further, nor compel you to give in to his schemes.
As we have been delivered from the law, having died to what we were held by, so that we should serve in the newness of the spirit and not in the oldness of the letter, in Romans 7:6, we should discern these strategies and stop Satan at his tracks. To ignore his devices will be disastrous. It’s when the going gets tough that wisdom is acquired to accomplish great exploits for God. Maturity in the spirit is the key to success. Joshua acquired wisdom and the gift of hearing overnight because he lingers long in the tabernacle of God, even longer than that of Moses. This is where strength and power are incubated.
Submit to God, resist Satan and he will flee from you. James 4:7. Do not allow him opportunity to plant his stronghold in your life. God be praised.
Prayer: O Lord may I be watchful, stand fast in the faith and be strong so that I will quench the fiery darts of the enemy. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
