Week of April 14 2024 

There is a lot of fake news and misinformation in the mainstream media which got me thinking about how the enemy will attack. One of the things the enemy uses is deception. He uses deception by trying to convince you through deceptive words that you can’t win whatever struggle you are facing. The good news is that we have all the things we need to be victorious. We have the armor of God, the powerful name of Jesus, the Holy Spirit and angelic beings at our disposal. But yet the devil will try to deceive us by saying things like, “You’ll never make it. You’ll always be a failure. I’m going to take everything you’ve got.” And too often we can forget about our weapons and act like heaven doesn’t exist, like the name of Jesus is no more powerful than any other name, and we run away. Why? Because we are afraid. We accept his lies as truth and believe what he says, instead of what God says. But God has already equipped us to win. Our enemy is already a defeated foe. Jesus already beat him at Calvary. If we allow fear to overtake us, then we are letting someone who has already been defeated talk us into dropping our weapons. Let me tell you something. The storms you may be facing in your life right now could very well be at their end. The eye of the hurricane could have already passed over you, but Satan is going to keep throwing up smoke screens, thunder, lightning and all kinds of things to make you think it is going to be with you forever. He’s going to do whatever he needs to do to cause you to panic. Don’t be like the people in Psalm 78:8 who did not have a steadfast spirit, who did not set their hearts right and gave up in the day of battle. Remember, the Lord has gotten you out of what looked like impossible situations before, and He’ll get you out again! Don’t give the devil a foothold. Do not fear, because God is on your side! Remember Romans 8:37, "In all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us."
