3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ…
Today’s Inspiration: Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ who has blessed us with every Spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ. Ephesians 1:3. God has given those in Christ a measure of Grace, a measure of faith and discernment. Romans 12:3, 6-7. The minute we are saved, our spirit is connected back to our Maker and creator and for this reason David wrote in Psalm 121:1-2 to look upwards and when we look upwards, where does our help comes from. Our help comes from the Lord. As every Spiritual gift is given by the Holy Spirit, we must look to the Holy Spirit how to act, how to pray and how to discern the strategies to confront the enemy of our soul.
The world called it intuition. Intuition needs illumination by the Holy Spirit to grant us wisdom, knowledge, discernment and other similar supernatural understanding of what is occurring around us. It’s only the Holy spirit’s guidance that we are empowered to overcome the enemy. Hence we must soar above the storm we are battling with and be equipped with full knowledge of every Spiritual weapon in our hands before we can thwart the enemy. We have power to do so because God is on our side and the enemy is only a created being like us. His power is way below the power and authority of God which our Lord Jesus Christ has vested in us. Matthew 28:18-20.
It takes a lot of faith to believe the Revelation that what the Holy Spirit has implanted in us is the inner courage through the meditation of God’s word to combat the enemy. God has to stress this point to Joshua as He waited upon the Lord, for strategies to cross over from fear to courage to lead the people to take possession of the Promised Land, whilst in the Tabernacle in reverential fear of the Lord. Therefore like Joshua we must make it our daily task to seek out the communication with God to get an inspired word to refresh us, to renew us and to provide us with hope, faith and inner courage to overcome the lies of the enemy, that gave us the impression that they have won with their invincible power. Fighting with the enemy is like playing a game of chess where we know how to discern the next strategic move of the enemy. This is why Apostle Paul says that we must not be ignorant of satanic devices in 2 Corinthians 2:11.
Joshua stayed long in the Tabernacle so does David prior to confrontation with the enemy. It’s at the Tabernacle that we gain inner courage to face the enemy confidently by God’s inspired word that the King of Kings has gone before us and the Lord our rear guard with the angelic armies to help us overwhelm the enemy and keep them ambushed to take their spoils.
Every day of our life is a battle especially when we are drawing closer to a promotion where we know God values us. Do you know that God values us so much as to never forget us even though we may keep praying to Him to remember us like those in the Bible? He even inscribed us on the palm of His hands. Isaiah 49:15-16. If God values us, we know we will have Divine influence.
We are of much value because we are birthed out of the spirit to be in Christ’s image and the children of God. Genesis 1:27. It’s for this purpose we are created – to join forces with the Holy Spirit and His angelic armies to win every battle each day to bring glory to God’s name.
We can win the battle only with unity in the Body of Christ. It’s the unity that Jesus required as he prayed before crucifixion for his disciples that we may all be one with Christ as He is one with His Father and that we all maybe one with each other. John 17:21-22. We can only be made perfect in one if we are one in Christ since Christ is one with His Father. V23.
So do not go to battle unequipped but pick up your spiritual weapons to win the battle over every situation that has wearied your spirit like David did. It’s when you have the faith and inner courage and true knowledge and understanding what is behind the battle lines that we can emerge to be more than conquerors as inspired by Apostle Paul in Romans 8:37. We can be qualified only through Love and God is Love. 1 John 4:8. God be praised.
