The mind is a very powerful thing. Albert Einstein said it best with his quote, “Whether you think you can or you think you can’t you’re absolutely right.”
If I was asked to describe the struggle between life on earth and eternity and could only share one scripture with others it would be this one.
A thief comes only to steal and to kill and to destroy. I have come so that they may have life and have it in abundance. John 10:10 (HCSB)
Above are two very real promises. One promise is from the enemy. He promises to come only to steal and kill and to destroy. And that he will.
The other is the promise from our Father. He promises to come so that we may have life and have it in abundance. Make no mistake that it is a fact that our Father in heaven will return again. He’s returning for us.
I’ve heard it said that the enemy already knows the truth of our destiny. What a great victory it is for him if he can convince us we are less than, we are not worthy, we are ineffective, not gifted and useless, etc. Satan knows those are lies, but if he can manipulate our minds and take up residence even for a brief moment the seed of doubt will be planted. If we believe them allowing them to be watered, nurtured, and entertained we become paralyzed like a deer in the headlights.
On the wall of Living Waters is a quote from one of my favorite books and stories in the Bible.
Consider this! Perhaps this is the moment for which you have been created. Esther 4:14
I truly believe the enemy would not find you an important person of interest if you did not have such a specific, intentional, and oh so important call on your life. Consider that it is quite favorable that your current position and advancement for the Kingdom of God is a serious threat to the enemy and he knows it. He’s calling in the troops, hitting the Defcon 5 button, alarms and sirens blazing.
If this feels like you, go look in the mirror, push your shoulders back, standing tall with your head held high and scream, “How do ya like that Satan?”
Give God the glory, honor, and praise that He so richly deserves. He’s working in and through you and big things are coming. Stay prayed up. Link arms with other brothers and sisters who can walk along side of you and advance. I’m excited to hear ALL God is doing in and through you.
Diligently praying for you!
