It is high time you stopped allowing the enemy of your soul to bully and run over you! For so many years, I let the devil run all over me like a steam-roller, just because “Momma or daddy did not tell me any better.” In other words, at a certain point in your life you have got to stop blaming your parents, and be accountable to God for your own sins!! Your soul can be so infested and your heart infected by the weakness of sin in your flesh. The enemy and His minions can be glued to you like a magnet. If no one has told you, I am here to tell you that you are in a spiritual war and it is high time like for you to “Stand up and fight like a Man!!”
Do you wonder at times why you fail into the same old trap of sin again and again? The Father of all lies, will make you think you its all on you, that its your fault that you are carnal and fleshy. The devil had a hand to play in making you think that way. Its time to take a stand for the King, and spiritually get back into the ring!
Its time not to take the defensive! Haven’t your tried that already? This time take a offensive stand where we are firing the first blows of this lifetime wrestling match. That my brothers and sisters is going to take a heart sold out to Jesus, walking the steps that Jesus walked by God’s Holy Spirit. It means where you were once a passive by-stander, you are now in the trenches fighting valiantly on the front-lines as a soldier of the King. You are in active combat on the frontline!!
You cannot fight this kind of fight in the flesh, this is a supernatural war and you soul hangs in the balance. The word of God says our weapons are not carnal, but mighty in God through the pulling down of strongholds, taking captive every thought to the obedience of Jesus Christ!!
It is so easy to get in the flesh and regrettably saying that the devil doesn’t help matters any way, form or fashion. For a true born again spirit-filled Christian to live…is to die to the flesh, By the Spirit of God inside of us. we are putting to death the deeds of the flesh…it is that simple. We cannot fight the fleshly desires by staying in the muck and the mire, but by allowing the Spirit of God that resides within us to overcome by the blood of the spotless lamb. We are the temples of the Holy Spirit!! We should not be full of carnality, that is where the enemy deceives you into thinking that you can never change. I am telling you, “You can do all things through Jesus Christ!!”
We have to push through the crud by the Spirit of God. We have a real live threat and that is Satan and his forces of darkness. If you doubt and do not believe that there is a spiritual realm around you, and the revelation of it, you will always fight a losing battle, You have to identify and recognize who your real enemy is, and that is not a human being but demons from hell itself. You also have to recognize your victor and that is Jesus Christ. He is the Lion of Judah that resides in our hearts that gives us bold victories! I pray He can reveal these truths to you.
I wish I had known this revelation when I first became a Christian. You cant brush things under the rug, you need the full truth of the word of God. God gets all the glory, man cannot be ruled by his sinful nature.
The enemy of your souls wants to dig up as much dirt as possible on you. Why? He is out to destroy your character. All the godly characteristics in you are from God. You know full well what they are. The fruit of righteousness of God resides in each one of His children! We have no goodness or righteousness on our own. The Scriptures say that our righteousness is as filthy rags to the Lord.
Satan wants you to look at your sin, and throw in the towel. He wants you to take the easy way out and grovel in the miry mud pit of sin. He doesn’t want you to move on, he wants you to stay in your rut of corruption…
God wants you to look at His Son and what He has done. Through Jesus Christ we have been delivered and set free from the darkness of hell into God’s marvelous light! We have been brought by the price of the spilled blood on the cross of Calvary! This is not a small thing, but it is a giant deliverance from the grip of the prince of darkness! We should not have any problem looking and lovingly putting the true lover of our soul–Jesus Christ–first place in our life. It’s when we have lost sight of this is when the enemy comes strong to distract us… that we need to give the victory completely to Jesus. He will stand strong and bring us forth as His Champions!
To sum it all up, I want to say, “Stand up and fight like a man!!” The enemy will not let up until he sees that you mean business. Do not let the enemy run all over you with past sins and mistakes. Trust me He will bring out all the artillery. Stand-firm and steadfastly fight the fight of faith! and watch the enemy and his minions flee from your life! You will not regret it.
