Stand Firm Against The Enemy!

READ:  1 Corinthians 10:13  No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.


God will not allow you to be tempted beyond your ability to find a way out of that testing.   This means that as long as you are seeking the Word of God and living your life in fellowship with Jesus then whatever you are faced with - God will make a way of escape for you.   

There was a time when I was going through hard times with physical affliction and people would misquote this verse above to me.    It took me a while to understand that God was not the afflictor - but instead THE HEALER.    Thinking that God is the afflictor can actually hinder or hold back your faith.   It's very hard to fight against and resist the enemy when you think think God is the giver of the affliction. (James 4:7).     

Whatever affliction you are dealing with at the moment - it is time to RISE UP and RESIST the one who gave it to you.   STAND FIRM using the full armor of God to break the strategies the devil is coming against you with.  Your victory is a certain thing - as a Child of God you have VICTORY over the enemy.... he is defeated.... remind him of this today!! 

Put on all of God's armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil.  Ephesians 6:11
